Playing catch- up with the advents again today, I do have a good excuse though.
Please welcome the new addition to our family, grandchild number four ❤❤
(Taken about a hour after he was born)
(And this evening. He has already scratched his nose!)
Momma did not have a good time of it. As you know her waters broke on Thursday and she had been in hospital since the early hours of Friday morning but was not having contractions.
She was eventually induced on Saturday and all was going really well, the midwife thought she was quite near to giving birth after around 3 hours but when she examined her she had only dilated to 2 cm in all that time, her contractions were strong and close together so she should have been nearing the end.
At this point Joanne started saying she really didn't feel very well and that she thought something was the matter, a doctor was called in and he asked Joanne what was the matter. she repeated what she had told the midwife, to his credit he only asked her once and said if she thought something was the matter then he would do an emergency section.
I was scared, so Joanne must have been terrified, she really did look so pale.
Thankfully baby was delivered not long after and both were fine.
Up until I was told they were both ok I had held it together but the relief of being told everything had gone ok was too much and I just broke down.
They will both be in hospital for quite a few days as they are being treated for infection and are on antibiotics. So I think Joanne's instincts were right, and thank goodness the midwife and doctors listened to her.
Look at Bonnie's face! bless her, she has been looking forward so much to this baby brother
The other birthday was Jenny's, my eldest daughter, she is 37 today. It seems only yesterday that I was the one in hospital having just had my first child.
How time does fly.
Only two more Advents to open, I will miss having these little treats to open every day, but will look forward to putting all the gorgeous minis into my blanket and having little bath-time treats for months to come :-)
Yarn Advents for 21st
And a mini had cream from my Body Shop calendar
Advent yarn for 22nd with a lovely tea from Jo.
I love this cherry bakewell tea and I can't get it in the shops around here so I shall enjoy this tonight as my bedtime cuppa, thanks Jo :-)
I opened some face cream from my Body Shop calendar, I've never tried this so will look forward to seeing what it's like.
I've got some food shopping to do in the morning, i'm hoping that the supermarket won't be too busy, i'm not doing a 'big' shop, I haven't done that for years but with what's been happening here these last few days I haven't done any food shopping at all since last Wednesday.
Mark Is currently sneezing his head off in the other room so I'm keeping well out of his way until he is over the worst! He has more drugs and potions than a chemist lined up in the kitchen. I can't take any cold remedies, I swear by ginger and lemon tea and extra doses of vitamin C if I feel a cold coming on, works every time for me, but Mark puts his faith in over the counter cold cures. Men!
