Alexander James arrived at 01:24am on 30th December (36wks +3), 6lb 3oz.

After weeks of being in and out of hospital with a slow labour and high blood pressure, my waters finally broke all by themselves at 10.30 on the thursday night. Because I was supposed to be having a section we had to go in to hospital straight away even though the contractions were still as pathetic as they've been for weeks.

Luckily there were 3 c-sections booked in for the friday morning, so I got mine in the middle of the night, otherwise they'd have made us wait till morning. The spinal block worked brilliantly. There was a slight placenta accreta into the old scar tissue but they didn't need to do a hysterectomy. I hadn't realised they'd pull the entire uterus out to tie my tubes - Stuart said I turned white when the consultant said 'uterus removed'.

Alex is doing really well. The number of times I remember being 'advised' by midwives with the other boys to keep their willies covered up when changing to prevent 'accidents' - he managed to pee all over her when she did the first checks hehehe. I had planned on breast feeding but because of the milk / protein allergies of his big brothers (and the fact that it took me 30mins to express a whole 1ml), we've gone straight onto WySoy. He's started waking by himself for his feeds today.
