She's Here!

During the evening of the 27th January, I was sat at the computer writing a blog post. I'd just eaten dinner and David was at a work function... I was enjoying a relaxed evening to myself.

At 19:30 everything changed when my waters broke and just like that, our beautiful Emily was on her way.

She finally made it into the world on Friday the 28th January at 14:11 GMT, weighing 6lb 10oz - a completely natural birth involving no pain relief other than Entonox (gas & air) and my trusty TENS machine, and a neverending amount of support from David - just the way I wanted it to be.
