Cerys Elizabeth was born at 0842 GMT 6lb14oz.

She was OP until the last minute and born with nuchal hand.
Back labour sucked. Soooooo lucky it was quick!

Will tell our full story soon but the summary is:
I was at the hospital for 1.5 hrs before she arrived
DH missed it but my Sister was there and cut the cord.
3 cms to delivery = 40ish minutes (identical to DS's birth)
1 degree tear, no stitches


Sorry DD Buddy, expat-mama, that I didn't give you a heads-up!
Thanks everyone who gave their support in my panicky thread.....just read it!!

Home in bed now with my family, all complete!

Beautiful name! I might steal it except that an "s" ending wouldn't sound good with the last name.

Congratulations on a fast birth!

Wow, that was lightening fast. And what challenges during the labour (OP back pain and nuchal hand)!

So glad you're doing well and hope you are getting some rest and good help.

Congratulations and welcome to your baby Cerys! Sounds like a whirlwind with going somewhere and dh not there...but all was good (or if not, then not bad for too long!!) and now you're already home with your family and hopefully dh!

Wow, that was fast, especially for the position she was in! It probably would have been even faster if she'd been anterior the whole time, so maybe that was a good thing.

Her name is gorgeous! Enjoy your new family!
