Forum home Archived Birth Clubs My baby is due in June 2014

Our bundle has arrived!

Hi ladies, Our beautiful little girl Ivy arrived yesterday morning. We had a day of contractions on and off on wedbesday and once my son was tucked up in bed it all began. We got to hospital around 11.35pm. Was 3cm, had a trace and then felt the urge to push around 1.45am Thursday morning. She arrived in the birth pool after only intermittent gas and air and just 19 minutes! A very swift and intense end. But I was overjoyed to catch her myself and hold her and discover she was a girl. Beautiful moment. Thanks for all the supportive posts recently. image It's lovely to see most of our June babies here safe and sound. Xx

  • Do you remember me too TulipRose from the early days of Due in June?

    I've been keeping my eye on you since I realised you were overdue. Huge congratulations!! Very lovely name xx

  • We are really good thanks. Jasper is 6 months now and I can't believe how different he is to Ollie!

    So glad you got your vbac and in water too!

    Would love to see a pic when you get chance x
  • Peewee yes I remember you! Hope you are well.

    Sponge bobby I will try to post a photo when next on the laptop. I'm usually on my phone and you can't upload from phones.

    Wow 6 months old! Time flies! Hope they get on ok.

    Connor is besotted with Ivy. He's fascinated and keeps asking to hold her and see her. I'm sure it won't akways be so easy but it's a good start for them. So happy to have given him a sibling.

    And yes I was very excited I got to use the pool. Did a lot of prep though and it was agreed in my birth plan from senior midwife. But I cried when I saw it in the room! image
  • Huge congratulations Tulip, lovely to hear Ivy arrived safely with much less hassle than her big bro in the end. Similar age gap to my girls (21 mths) & it gets easier with time (Samantha starts school in September & Hannah will be at nursery come January, free time for Mummy, what will I do with myself, LOL).

    Time does fly so enjoy every little moment of it. Best wishes & catch up again soon. Xx

  • Congratulations on your fantastic news image such a beautiful name image xx
