Baby Family Pregnancy

Welcome to the world

I’ve been very quiet on the blog lately as I have had my hands rather full at home. On New Year’s Day the rather gorgeous bundle of loveliness was born.

At 37 weeks I met with my consultant who decided to induce the labour on New Year’s Eve at 37 + 1. So the labour generally consisted of us taking bets on whether we were going to have a 2015 or 2016 baby.

It took us 3 days to come up with a name but I’d like to introduce little Darcey Grace Lily Graham. She was born at 7:28 in the morning and weighed a very healthy 3.32kg or 7.3lbs, not a bad weight considering she was 3 weeks early! Clearly I grown very good size babies, Will was 8lbs 4oz at 40 weeks and Ben was 7lbs 7oz when he was born at 37 + 2.

I will write up my labour story over the next week or so but for now here are some photos of the newest addition to our family.
