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
