Post subject: New Arrival!
well, I've not been around for a while, so you can guess why
After something of a long labour (just over 80 hours altogether, starting last Tuesday ) baby Isaac John Henry was born at 01:27am on Saturday by natural birth. He was 6lbs 15oz
I'm home now after a short stay in the SCBU (he was born with a cleft palate so feeding was a big issue for the poor little mite, all sorted with specialist bottles and teats now though) and just getting into being a Mum. So excited and happy
Thought I'd pop on and let you guys know how it all went! I'll be back around on the forums soon I hope, although its amazing how fast time just disappears now I have this beautiful little man to look after!
p.s. - yes, he IS the most gorgeous baby ever in the whole world Its not cos I'm biased, honest!!

Thanks all! We're fine - just pretty tired a lot of the time as he seems to have decided that sleep is for the weak
I'm also expressing every 4 hours on top of feeding every 2hrs, so its really just feed/sleep at the moment! All good fun though, and he really is incredibly sweet and gorgeous
