Em & Lilly

Em loves her sissy "Lilly Bug"

All the Laird "Girls"

Lilly Kimberley Laird or "Lilly Bug"

Hi all,

Well as you can see Lilly "Bug" is here :D. Lilly came into the world on Friday the 4th of June at 10.43pm & weighed in at 7 pounds 13 & 1/2 ounces or 3.57Kg. Lilly is two weeks early but healthy.

I was induced in the end as my Hypertention/Pre-Eclempsia was not improving. Some of my platelets where dropping which meant that for medical reasons it was better that Lilly came early. We had an 8 hour labour & Doug was with me for the most of it. Although at one stage the midwives & I decided that he needed to have a sleep so sent him back to our room for an hour or so (he'd just come off night shift). I had a great labour this time around. I also had two wonderful midwifes who made the whole experience wonderful.

I am really settled this time around as Lilly doesn't have the problems that Em had when she was born, plus being number 2 child I know a bit more than I did last time. Also so far I am not showing any signs of Post Natal Depression & so far have only had a few Baby Blue tears. I am hoping that in the next few weeks I will be able to get myself into some sort of routine with everything so I can feel that I am not all over the place.

Well it's time to wake sleeping Lilly Bug for her bottle & make sure Em has some lunch as well. Have a great week ahead every one & I hope to come & visit your blogs soon. TTFN xoxoxoxoxoxo
