This will be a very short Birth story as I am REALLY tired and as it was a scheduled C-section, there wasn't a great deal of drama involved.. hehe

I went into hospital on Thursday for my scheduled C-section.. Waited 2 hours until they figured out what was happening with dr's and OR's etc.. Longest wait ever!!!.. Eventually, I got wheeled up to the Operating Theatre and was totally expecting a General rather than an epi.. But they did an epi !!! It was sooo much better and I was awake and saw him as soon as he came out!!!... It was a totally amazing experience and so glad I got to experience it...

Gabriel Scott was born 5th August at 11:38 am, weighing 4.34 kilos (aprox 9 and half pounds I think the conversion is... )...
He is just adorable and everything we could possibly imagine.. I was fairly sore on Thursday and Friday but Saturday started feeling a lot better.. I totally found the epi ALOT easier to recover from than the general from my previous pregnancies / births...

Well its Monday night here and I got discharged from hospital today, which I was so glad about.. I think they wanted to keep me in a little longer but I really wanted to come home to my boys.. Bf'ing is going well, apart from I did have some problems with attaching so have some sore nipples at the moment but I am hoping this will pass... My milk only came in last night / today so I am feeling quite uncomfortable and wondering why I didn't buy bigger bras... EEKK!!!... hehe

So apart from feeling like my tops are bursting open at the seams, uncomfortable, still a little sore and the BIGGEST swollen feet I have EVER seen... ( Even bigger than when I was pregnant!!! ....)
We are blisfully happy with our little bundle of joy.. He is just gorgeous even with the lack of sleep... hehe

Pictures to come!!..

It's so hard to foresee how our bodies will change from pregnancy to post partum. Luckily, we'll all get back to normal eventually.
