Caroline’s on the mend, and we’ve moved to the main post-natal ward. Joshua would like to say hi (as best as he can)
Joshua Micheal Russell was born at 0710, 10th June 2014. He weighed a rather hefty 3.97kg (8lb 12). This time, the labour was over pretty quickly! Again, Caroline skipped all the build up, and was fully-dilated when we got to the hospital, and from there the delivery went fairly smoothly. It was tough on Caroline though, because she was low on iron, fluids and sleep before even starting the birth! So she spent one night in hospital recovering.
Thanks everyone for moral support, prayers and well-wishing.
Especially big thanks to Nan-Nan, for already being at our house to look after Oscar! He had lots of fun with walks and ice cream, waiting to meet his baby brother.
Still pushing, but I can see the head now. We’re heading into the endgame. Caroline is in position and they’ve taken half the bed away!
Caroline’s really pushing now! Making good progress. He’s hairy!
Contractions started at 4, and waters broke. We’re at the hospital, now and turns out… She’s fully dilated!
Started pushing, so they want to see the baby within an hour!
