Its a.......................


Hi all

Firstly I am sorry this has taken a week to do.

Michael and I have had our baby. A little boy called Ryan.

It wasn't as easy as we hoped but he came in the end - i blame the cold weather - to cold for me as well!!

My waters broke at 2.15pm last Saturday but I had no contractions at all - off to hospital we went to make sure all was ok. All was and they said if we didn't go into labout by Monday morning we were going to be induced!!!!

But at 6.30pm that night they were there!! We got to 4 centemeters by 2.00 am on sunday morning and all was looking good to have baby by midday. I went on the gas and air at about 5. am but at 7.00am i still was at 4 cm - nothing had changed.

Off we went to hospital in the ambulance by 12.00pm still nothing had changed by this time i had been in labour for 18 hours and we dicided to have an epidural.

Ryan finnaly turned up at 8:15pm weighing 6lbs 12oz after 30 hours in labour but all worth it in the end.

All is well and now just settling into family life.

Katie & Michael,Congratulations to you both. He already has his Leigh haircut which is cool will have no trouble fitting in.

30 Hrs that certainly is long but very nice to still hear a postive at the end.

We are offically a week late and may have to be induced on Friday, Hopefully he will get is finger out before that! Little Bugger.

Ian, How do we post new threads? Not that we have any news yet but wont be much longer.

Hope the family are doing well.

Congratulations to Katie & Michael,

30 hours - Ouch.

He is a very handsome little chap. You will be up all night now and also when he is a teenager keeping all the girls at bay.

I guess your waters broke after you saw Dan in the high street - he has that effect on people.

Congratulations and well done, now I sound like a school teacher. A+
