Sebastian Felix was welcomed into the world, without intervention, at 12.05am on Sunday 21st December. A summer solstice babe! And a sagitarian – which is what I was REALLY hoping for!
Just under 8 hours of labour with 3 and a bit hours of pushing. My contractions started at 2mins apart, 1minute long so it was a pretty huge shock but with the amazing support of DP and our doula, I did it.
He’s huge. 4.3kg (about 9pounds 5ounces) and 56cm long (22inches). He doesn’t even fit his newborn clothes or nappies.
We stayed at the BC until this morning and are now just settling in at home.
More later. Must sleep while babe sleeps!
