Here she is! This is the week old Ruby Winter Rock (her Dad's surname) and she was born on her due date, Saturday 8 November at 9:35pm. We were unexpectedly induced after our 40 week midwife appointment on the Friday, that showed at the very last minute I was starting to show signs of pre-eclampsia. A very fast (just under 5 hours), intense and natural labour (with lots of twists and turns on the way) happened and she came into the world. We had absolutely AMAZING support and a positive experience with our hospital.
We're totally enamored, sleep deprived and waiting for the fact that we are parents to finally sink in. We are not sure who she looks like yet - she has Dr-Mr's nose and my ears. Most likely she just looks like herself!
Georgie was not impressed with her arrival and vomited on the rug in front of me in protest within 30 minutes of her coming home. He has been completely spoilt, patted, fed, taken for super-walks and included, so he is coming around and gave her a tiny lick to the back of her head and hand at different points, which is a positive thing since he refused to look at me or her when we got back (and for those squicked by doggy stuff, we did use anti-bacterial wipes/washing straight after the licks)
More mushy baby stuff to follow!
