A belated introduction to our beautiful baby boy – Sully!
Born on December 1st at 5.43am a week earlier than expected but much to my relief – I was far too big, waddly and uncomfortable to last any longer!
I was lucky to have a very quick and easy labour – and the water birth I really wanted having watched a lot of One Born Every Minute and deciding I wanted what the girl in the red bikini had.
If you don’t know the background, it took us two and a half years to conceive and we had an emotional time trying to understand unexplained secondary infertility.
Now though, we are extremely lucky to be a family of four – we are the proud parents of another little boy and Bear is an excitable and doting big brother to Sully.
You forget how rewarding being mum to a newborn is.
I also have this rose tinted view of a family Christmas – sitting back, relaxing and being on maternity leave with husband off work too. Ok, so I may have to change a lot of squitty yellow nappies, and will probably be stuck to the sofa, sweaty, self concious and breast feeding most of the time, but still – ’tis the most wonderful time of the year.
A big thank you to everyone who supported us over the past three years – especially my sister in law, my family, some very special Twitter friens and the manager of our GP surgery who consoled me, sobbing when the doctors had no answers.
