Hunter Vincent Henshaw!

The big fella decided to put in a very quick appearance just hours before I was due to be induced! 

The labour lasted just 3 hours from 1st twinge to cuddles and though it was a text book normal delivery, it was very scary due to his unexpected largeness!!

I lost a lot of blood at delivery and narrowly escaped going to theatre, luckily some medication via a drip slowed it down and we were discharged after 12 hours. There was also meconium present which terrified me, the joys of too much inside information due to my job sucks sometimes!!

Anyhows Hunter is doing great, he's even gained weight in his first week and now weighs 11lb 3oz!! Mentally I'm back to my happy cheerful self, thank goodness the fed-up moaning me has retreated back to wherever she had been hiding! Physically I think it will be a couple more weeks before I'm anywhere near back to the pre-pregnancy me - bruised is all I'm saying!!!

I hope to get back to my sewing and regular blogging soon, bear with me won't you?

PS: All these pictures were taken with my iPhone and then edited in PicMonkey. PicMonkey is the new Picknik for those who don't know, it's brilliant!!
