Hi ladies,

Sorry I haven't updated you all until now!

I am now the very proud mummy of Ella Grace born at 6.53 pm on Tuesday the 27th of April. Weighing 9lb, 2oz - a little bigger than expected but she is also 53cms so she is very tall (like her Dad) and is in proportion and nice and healthy which is all we can ask for (she passed all her tests).

I went into labour naturally (2 days before my due date) but things didn't progress as planned so after 36 hours (with no sleep and very little food) my OB made the decision for a c-section. I also had a nasty temperature caused by an infection and the OB was concerned it could affect the baby. We are both fine now. At that stage I am not sure I would have had the energy to push had I been dilated enough anyway! I only ended up getting to 6 cms.

I am still in hospital and will possibly stay until Sunday or Monday. Still very sore and tender but so excited and in awe of our gorgeous girl. Of course every little bit of pain and stress was totally worth it and Matt and I couldn't be more in love with our little girl

Hope to be able to post again soon.

Thinking of you all xx
