INTRODUCING SAMUEL ALLEN

I’M A MUMMY!

Sam was born on Thursday 27th April at 22.05 EST (Friday 28th 03.05 GMT) at Piedmont Hospital, weighing 7lb 9.3oz.

From start to finish the labour was a pretty furious mere five hours and we barely had time to blink. No doubt I’ll be writing a LJ entry containing far too much information when I get a chance later.

I’m very happy to say that I had my wish of having a totally natural vaginal delivery with no epidural or other painkillers, though, even if I had decided I wanted anything the birth was so quick I don’t think I would have had time to get anything anyway! My doctor and the delivery nurses were quite impressed.

Bill was most amazing during the birth and I really don’t believe I could have asked any more of him. We’re still talking and he did a grand job of keeping me as focused and calm as he could.

I was discharged from hospital this morning and am very glad to be back at our home now where I have had no trouble catching up on naps between feedings and am beginning to feel more refreshed.

Sam is absolutely beautiful and is currently fed and curled up in Daddy’s arms on the sofa. Daddy is exhausted and has fallen asleep with a great grin on his face.

    yup, that’s a baby alright! Congratulations from me, dru, and Rose too! Looking forward to regular pictoral updates!

    FYI he was born as Rose and I were watching a repeat of LOST, winding down after Rose’s first Scotland gig in over 20 years (a successful night all told) and, had he actually managed to be born on the 28th, would be sharing a birthday with and Saddam Hussein.

    much love from us all
