After the quickest of pregnancies to the longest overdue and labour period I can finally introduce who we've all been waiting for, meet our beautiful Ava Jean.
Ava was born on the 3rd March, weighing a whooping 9lb 4oz and was 53cm long. She was 11 days overdue and was born via induction as my waters decided to break but my contractions never started. Labour was a rather unpleasant experience which is such a shame as I'd so hoped for a positive one this time around, but we both got through it and came out the other side in one piece. I'll probably be writing my birth story in the next few weeks but for now I just wanted to share our wonderful news.
I can't believe that she is finally here and just four days in and she's fitted right into the family. She's quite a chilled out baby, one who loves to be held and talked to. She's very alert and strong and has taken to breastfeeding like a pro. She's honestly the prettiest little thing that I've ever seen, I can't take my eyes off her. Welcome to the world Ava girl.
