splodge and me at forty weeks

She is here.
And she is a girl.
She was born on Friday 21st September
at 39+6 gestation.
So she was a very good girl for not keeping us waiting.
She weighed in at a healthy 7lb 14oz
and she is absolutely perfect in every way.

I am feeling so proud of myself.
I have a beautiful little family
that I made (with a little help) and grew
and I just can't believe I got so lucky.
I'm also proud of myself for doing the labour thing again;
giving birth is hard and I definitely forgot in between times just how tough and painful it gets.
But I did it and it was all really okay
and what we got at the end makes up for all the bad stuff.
I am officially a mummy of two.
We are officially a family of four.
We are all totally in love
and couldn't be happier.

. . . feel free to go and vomit now, I don't mind!
