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.

So peaceful when she’s asleep
