...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.
