New Arrival

Postby joanne » Wed Dec 24, 2003 03:29 am

Just to let you all know. I had a little boy (Austin Nicholas)
9lb 10.5 oz on 19th December by elective C section. Everything went fine - he is delightful and breastfeeding. No pre eclampsia this time around.

Such a change from last time. Number one son was 2lb 11oz and looked like ET. Number two, so big and looks like Jabba the Hut!

Will post a photo as soon as I work out the techno bit!
