It's a girl!!

We are delighted to announce the birth of our lovely new daughter... Ainslie. Born at 1.12 pm, Friday 24the Oct, into her Daddy's hands, at home, after a fast 6 hour labour. All is well, she's absolutely lovely! Weighs in at 10lb 11oz (!! - I thought she was going to be smaller than the others!!). No tears or grazes etc. I love home birth! Photos and birth story to follow.

3 days overdue, but it's not all bad.. baby just isn't ready yet. I'm trying all the natural induction stuff of course, but kinda happy to wait too. It's Labour Weekend here in NZ this weekend.. will I be in labour? LOL.
Fingers crossed I can come back with some good news soon. :)

39 weeks

One week to go, officially, but who knows what this baby will decide!

Feeling good, nice and peaceful, ready to birth. Very much looking forward to meeting our baby and having a cuddle, but not too impatient (although today would be good, lol). Feeling well.

Just had some accupuncture this morning to try and get baby moved out of posterior position, that was interesting.

Will try and get more bump photos soon, and will update here if I have any news!
