    ...comes a rainbow. Baby George Thomas was born last night, on his due date, at 8:06pm weighing 7lb 1oz. Nik and I are very in love with him.

    Labour didn't go quite according to plan. The first stage of labour went well and the midwives praised me for being a trouper and just dealing with the pain. Got to 10cm quite quickly. Then came the problem. I was pushing for four hours and he just wasn't coming. I was getting very frustrated and exhausted. It transpired that I have some bones in my pelvis that are situated in such a way that it was impossible for him to get through so they took me into theatre for a spinal injection and George was delivered via forceps. I was in so much pain by this point, it was horrendous, but was so happy to have him out and safe.

    Aw wow!!
    Congratulations and well done you.
    My first was a difficult forceps birth (keillands) 40 years ago (and my second shot into the world feet first).
    Their presence makes it all go away and they’re worth every minute.
    George is adorable - a double rainbow!

    Holly has not met him yet. We are still in the hospital at the moment and hoping to go home this evening (fingers crossed). Just need to wait for his hearing test. Poor little mite has been poked and prodded at so much today.

    Huge Congratulations on the birth of George Thomas

    Can I say your photos look amazing considering your difficult labour, mine weren't so good.
