Better late than never !

Hi all, firstly sorry for the delay...you know how these things take time to get round to with a newborn !

Oliver George was born a week late on Monday 3rd Dec at 10.20pm. Katie started getting contractions on the Sunday at about 7pm after having a sweep earlier in the day, so all in all about a 27 hour labour....ouch

At the end of it all we were left with a perfect baby boy weighing in at a healthy 9lb 2oz....well worth the pain (Katie tells me).

Would be good for all the girls to meet up during the day at somepoint for a cuppa and a chat...willing to host at our house if anyone is up for it just conact and we can arrange a date.

Also good to keep this site updated every now and then on birthdays / specail occasions etc.

So thats us all done then !

Cangratulations to all and chat soon !

Neil & Katie.

Finally he arrived!

Hi all,

Lewis Wilson finally arrived (9 days late) on the 27/11/07 11.52 pm weighing 7lbs 2 oz. He was not very well when he was born and Debra had to bring him round. He had to spend 3 days in the special care unit at Southend Hopital, turned out he had a bad chest infection and was given a course of antibiotics. Glad to say that both Mum and Baby were allowed home on Sunday 2nd of December and both are doing fine.

The home birth plan went out the window as Claire was suffering from constant back and hip pain. A trip to the hospital on the Tuesday moring, It was decided that they was going to induce Claire that day but after an examanation Claire was told " Oh you are 6 cm dialated" he arrived approx 12 hours later.

We was so glad that we went and had him at the hospital only becuase of the small problems afterwards.Debra was fantastic and you never know the home birth may happen next time around, hey Claire????????

Sorry it's taken a while but you know what I mean when I say hectic.

Hope your all well, Cant be many more left now. Kaite and Neil look forward to your news.

Claire, Paul & Lewis xxx
