ITS A...

BOY!!!

Yes, I can't quite believe that I am online blogging about this already, but our son was born at 11.25am today at home in the birthing pool. He weighs 8lb 4 (3.74kg) and both mum & bubs are doing really well. As for the birthing experience, it was WONDERFUL!!!! Oh and hot towels are AMAZING pain relief!

I won't go into detail, but if you are tempted by a home birth, I urge you to give it serious consideration. I will admit that I had concerns beforehand, but in the end everything was perfect. I can't praise the midwives enough... they were great.

As I write this, I have a beautiful sleeping baby in my arms... AH BLISS! We are waiting for big sister to get home. I can just imagine her exclamation of "BABY!!!"
