Introducing Charlie.....

Well our new wee man finally arrived on 22nd May at 3:51pm. He weighed 7lb 13oz and was 55 cm long. He arrived into this world pretty quickly. My waters were broken at about 1pm and contractions started- I walked up and down the stairs till 2pm to get things happening a bit faster. Then things started to happen and contractions came about 2-3mins apart until he was born at 3:51pm. I was really proud of myself for doing the whole thing with no pain relief.
We named him Charlie David. Charlie was a name we really liked and David is my Grandfathers name.
Charlie and I spent 3 nights in Rangiora Hospital, while Steve and Jack had some father/son bonding time. He is absolutely gorgeous and is already doing amazingly well waking only once in the night for a feed. Jack absolutely loves his little brother and keeps saying "It's OK Charlie" and gives him kisses.
Just born

Well in truly Overdue

Well this will probably be my last post as a mother of 1. Tomorrow is D-day. I honestly didn't think that I would make it this far this time. But it looks as though my babies are quite happy to just stay warm inside of me. Jack was 10 days overdue and this one (depending on which scan dates we go by) is anywhere between 5- 14 days overdue. So tomorrow we head to the hospital to be induced. I am hoping and praying for a good nights sleep and lots of energy tomorrow. And of course everyone wants a nice quick, not to painful birth with no complications. Not too much to ask is it lol.
So next time Steve or I update this will be with pics or at least news of our brand new wee man. Stay tuned :-)
