She's here 6 days late, born Tuesday morning at 8.08am labour only started at 10pm Monday night so all happened very quick. She did a poo inside though ๐Ÿ˜ฅ So needed to be out Asap which ment mummy tore in 2 places and needed over 10 stitches. Not just that but more importantly needed to be monitored very closely for 24 hours, now she has a cough ๐Ÿ˜ฅ We named her Lily Grace. Unsure on her weight think staff made a mistake we were told 8.11lb but on my notes says 3.950kg so something doesn't add up still never mind! Just 1 year ago I was in the worst place ever after losing my first baby at 12 weeks just proves u can go on and have healthy baby (so don't lose hope). A massive thank u to everybody who supported me and replied to posts I'd made. Rebecca

Congratulations! She's just perfect! That tiny little person makes all the pain and struggle worthwhile. Now rest up Mumma and enjoy these precious first days xXx

Thank you! Pain better today although didn't release how much my arm muscles would ache, not used to carrying a little weight. Lol, thanks again xx

Oooh fab Rebecca, congratulations to you! Lily Grace, what a gorgeous name and gorgeous baby.

Hope you are recovering well and that Lily Grace is well too xxx

Thank you! I am recovering well-I think! Hope ur pregnancy is still going well! Xx

Awww congratulations. The weight is the same! Pounds converted to Kg :)

Thank you! We think we have figured out what happened according to Google 3.950kg translates to 8.07lb and when u say 8.07 and 8.11 out loud they sound the same we think we have misheard midwife say weight ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ silly us! Lol x

Congrats! It's a steep learning with a new little one, but it's also the best feeling in the world when you hold her and she falls asleep on you.

Thank u, I think that's my favourite bit, I don't really want to put her down-like it when she crys as I get another cuddle! Xx

She's a gorgeous little thing! ๐Ÿ˜ Congratulations again and: well done!xxx

Thank you! So pleased with her! Hope u and joe r well xx

Congratulations hun, she's beautiful. I too had a little boy after losing my little girl. It gives hope to everybody. Rest as much as you can and enjoy your little angel. Take care x

They will never be forgotten hun. I lost my angel 2012 at 39 weeks. She will always be with me and I had a tattoo for her x

Congratulations xx she is beautiful <3

My midwife few years back recommended Hypercal cream to help my bits heal. It's by Nelsons. Herbal not medicinal - hope it helps x

Thank you!! Think I'm healing ok day 3 today and I would say pain whilst moving is only about a 5, no pain when sat comfortable. Found a perfect way of peeing without stinging! Just keeping stitches clean! Thanks again xx

Congratulations! She is absolutely beautiful. I had an episiotomy so I know how painful the stitches can be. I recommend sitting on one of those long pregnancy pillows so that it forms a ring. Keeps the pressure off those tender bits!

thank you! I did think about a donut ring cushion thing, but to be honest not in as much pain today and but the time I go out and get something or order it online I might be very nearly healed! Xx

Congratulations on ur bundle of joy she is adorable :) enjoy every second they grow far too quickly! what a beautiful name! We have lilly rose for a girl after her 2 great grandmothers :) xx

Thank you, yeah I no I want her to stay this way for ever, I think I was born to be a mummy! Beautiful name! My Lily's second names after my grandmother! And Lily's just such a beautiful name who wouldn't want it? Lol xx

It certainly is i really hope I get a girl this time round. I already have a boy called oliver and I think the names go really well together xx

Cracking name my partners sons called Oliver. I did think Olivia for lily but his son and daughter didn't like it. So now we have a Oliver, Lucy and Lily!

congratulations! X

My son is going to be 4 in Aug I still check to make sure he's breathing! Can't help it, their your most treasured possession(S) and don't ever think your being silly! Just a wonderful loving mother! Xx

Wonderful news! Congratulations on the safe arrival of your little one xx

Congratulations Hun!!! She's beautiful. When my baby Halle Rose was born the 29th April, I also had to have stitches and was also told her weight was 8lbs 11oz. This was also wrong, the midwife read the conversion chart wrong - she was only 6lbs 6oz haha!!

Well done my lovely, she's absolutely gorgeous. Hope all is well with you and baby xxx
