Short update

I gave birth to a lovely baby boy a week ago.. unsurprisingly I haven't had much time on line since !!

Both of us are doing well. He weighed 3.8kg (8lb 6) which is a much bigger baby than my first and is healthy and alert. The labour was very quick and that plus his head size meant I came out of it needing a few stitches but other than being a bit stiff and sore from that I am now much more mobile than I was. So far the SPD seems to have gone pretty much over night so even with broken sleep and settling into breastfeeding I feel a lot less restricted than I have done for several months.

Obviously cooking is still at a minimum but I am looking forward to getting back to some sense of normality in that regard soon.


  1. Congratulations on the birth of your baby boy.

  2. Oh my! Congrats on your bran new addition. What a blessing, so glad to hear things went smoothly. Enjoy thse easy days, they go by way too quickly. xo~ laurie

  3. Awww! Congratulations. I'm thrilled to hear that you and the baby are doing great :D

    Heh, did they have gluten free options for you in the hospital?

  4. Whew!! Congrats on the birth of your little boy, happy to hear both of you are doing fine!!
    Take care and enjoy!

  5. They did have gluten free options though it took a couple of meals to find out.

    They have a printed menu at the nurses station which lists all the dishes available each meal and which are gluten free, veggy, and many other options. As it turns out they do pretty much everything that isn't pasta, pastry etc gluten free, so all the dishes in sauces and the like.

    Would have been nice if they had trained the lass serving up so she knew about the menu book however!!

    Even though someone came and asked at one point if I had any dietary requirements they didn't mention it either !
