Oliver was born at 4.18am via emg. c section after a long and hideous 17 hour labour with almost no pain relief as Gas made mummy sick and she reckoned it smelt like smelly feet!
Date: 20 August 2010
We had an AMAZING midwife who put up with a lot of flack (as did the poor Doctor and Anaesthetist when they finally came in at abour 3.30am). The epidural was the BEST thing that happened followed by the arrival of Oliver.
Daddy was AMAZING too and did a fantastic job in a difficult situation. It is very hard to see someone in so much pain and have no ability to stop it!
Marcus is a fantastic big brother. He has coped amazingly well with everything and likes to give Oliver "cunnles" (cuddles) and "kiss, Kiss".
We are all home now and settling into life as a family of 4. Nights are pretty rough at the moment, Oliver seems to think that it is screaming time between feeds so sleep is minimal and then by the morning Marcus is refreshed and ready to go for the day.
I now remember the hellish first weeks when Marcus was born, I keep telling myself that we just need to get to that magic 6 week mark and things will get easier! :)
To Gran, Pop Pop, Nana, and Aunty Hayley, thank you so much for all your Love and help. We can not thank you enough.
All our Love
Nicola. Graeme, Marcus & Oliver
