At long last

The Worlds longest pregnancy is finally over - ok, not Jessica Simpson long but long enough.

That's right friends ... Little Ethan was born on Friday afternoon following an induction (due to my health) on Thursday evening.

It was a 12 hour labour with a few sticky moments but we managed to limit our intervention and drugs thanks to Calmbirth and some pretty amazing support from S (and my mum towards the end).

At 7p11oz and 53cm long he's a healthy boy but not huge thankfully.

All going great so far ... Including the breast feeding and we hope to be home by Monday so will blog more then.
