Say Hello to my new beautiful Grandson :-)
Jenny called me at work Yesterday morning to say her waters had broke and we made it to the hospital just about 12 noon.
Her contractions didn't start until 9pm last night and she was a real trooper, managing with only gas and air until 5.30am this morning, she was having some real strong pains but this baby wasn't having any of it, so it was decided that after so long she would have to go to theatre and have a forceps delivery.
I felt so sorry for her because she had been so brave all along and ended up having an epidural for the last half hour or so - you can never tell what's going to happen can you.
Baby was born this morning at 6.20am weighing 7lb 15oz.
Thankfully everything was ok and Mother and baby are both well and happy, and none of us can stop smiling :-)
Mum and Dad have yet to settle on a name, although they have a few they like.
I'm off to try and get a few hours sleep if i can, we have all been awake for around 27 hours now it's just adrenalin keeping us going :-)
From one happy grandma :-) Until next time xxx
