Baby boy came early 👶🏻💙

At 2130 last night my waters broke which quickly led to contractions. At 34 weeks, at 0630 this morning our baby boy was born weighing 5lbs 14oz. He needs abit of help with his lungs but overall is absolutely fine. I am doing well too ☺️ Welcome to the world Ewan Francis.

Ophelia Daisy 🩷

Arrived 2 days early after a spell of reduced movements; discussed induction but went with our gut and went home for the evening, waters went naturally at 4.45am the following morning! Oxytocin hormone drip as her heart rate didn't enjoy contractions, gas and air and pethidine, 6 and a half hours later she joined us…

3rd birthday ideas

What are you planning to do? I'm really struggling for some reason! We have annual passes to our local zoo so go all the time. I can't even get her on a £1 machine toy never mind bigger rides so cbeebies will likely be a waste of money. Peppa pig world is too far away - were cheshire based. She goes to soft pl...

Height?

Going off the weight conversation earlier - how tall are everyone’s babies? Mine is about 24inches at 6 weeks! He’s so tall! I’m starting to find some of the 0-3 Jammies are getting tighter just due to his leg length 🥺
