Finally, baby Maud !!!!!!
Maud was born at 4 pm on thursday, labor did take a bit longer than expected because she "floated" so much (twice the average quantity of liquid), but once they broke the waters she was out in 3 contractions. 53 cm, 3.8 kg. She seems real calm so far, only thing is she sleeps a lot during the day, .. but has trouble finding sleep at night.. But hey, she's only a few days old !
I'm fine too, although I fainted on the first evening ( didn't eat for the whole day and you should have seen the meal they gave me, like I was on a weight watchers diet !!). All good now, just need to be able to find sleep again. Not that that I don't have the time, my body just won't go in "sleeping mode"... hormones ? Was the same for Prune anyway.
Anyhow, enough baby talk. Tomorrow we're starting the grand tour to visit the family, so you probably won't hear much from me for a bit ... But let me just tell you I got the most amazing package from Yahaira today, I'll post pics later but you can already see a pic of the beautiful sweater she knit for Maud on her blog.
Oh, and can you believe I even knit a few rows while at the clinic..? Actually I even would have knitted more if I had packed it from the beginning but I felt silly taking my knitting with me. But it was nice and relaxing to have something to keep the fingers busy during quiet times...
Okay, talk to you all later :-D
Sorry...I realize you don't know me because I've never commented before, but I found you through Craftster and have been an avid reader for some time now. I enjoy your work very much!
Maud is a beautiful name, she is beautiful- thanks so much for sharing all these pictures!
I am so, so happy for you!
Enjoy your new friend!
Take care xxxxx
Have a good time en famille and return home safe and not too tired. All the bestXXX
3 CONTRACTIONS?? Yey! That's great! The food I had with Nia was unbearable too. It doesn't seem fair- you can't eat all day and then they give you stuff that's inedible!
How's prune doing with her? Give them both a big hug and kiss from me!
Oh and I designed/knitted a one of a kind dress for prune- give me a bit more time because I am also going to be doing something for maud as well!!!
I love you and your family! I am so HAPPY for you!
(and aren't you glad it's over and done with now??!!)
