I’m delighted to introduce you to Joseph William Summersett and Harriet Frances Kathleen (helpfully colour-coded in this photo):
Joe was born at 11.15 am on the 16th of January, weighing 3.06 kg, and Hattie followed him at 11.16 am, weighing 2.69 kg. We think they’re gorgeous – we’re both madly in love!
Hattie and Joe are both doing really well and latching on nicely: Joe, in particular, is a very enthusiastic feeder!
The c-section wasn’t much fun in the end – they struggled to do my epidural, and for a while it looked like they might just put me under. Luckily, it got sorted, albeit with a fair degree of discomfort. However, I was on my feet again last night and am feeling ok. I just woke from a 90 minute nap that felt as good as a full night’s sleep, so it appears that my body is already adjusting!
More to follow, when I’m not feeling quite so bombed.
