My baby boy was due May 25th, but decided to come along June 4th instead! After starting early labour on Tuesday 2nd June it didn't progress as quickly as we hoped and ended up being induced to speed him along! Apparently I was very brave, only had 10mg of diamorphine spaced over 6 hours (2x 5mg) and lovely lovely gas and air! He is a very content baby, and I have managed to get him to latch on and breast feed after a rocky start with him not sucking properly and frustrating himself. I am so proud of us both and thankful to my wonderful man and my mum who made the best birthing team EVER according to the midwife. He was 9 pounds 1 ounce, which is big for a first baby I think! He has so much dark hair, he will need his first haircut before he is a month old! :-D
