I had my baby! She came nearly 6 weeks early. I gave birth to the beautiful Molly Lilian on 17 January at 15:17. She weighed 6lbs 3ozs/2.88kg and was 45cm tall. I am now back home as of today and still recovering well from my c-section. Unfortunately little Molly has had to stay in the hospital as she is so young and is having trouble feeding but we hope to have her back with us soon.
I know that I'm her mum and so I'm incredibly biased, but man, isn't she a cutie?! She was instantly cute. Maybe that was helped by the c-section, meaning that she wasn't all squashed up when she was delivered.
We have no idea why she decided to come so early. There was talk that I may have got my dates wrong because she was so big for her age but the obstetrician decided that she was definitely 34 weeks and thinks it was probably my 'unintelligent' uterus (apparently they're not very smart organs) deciding that as baby was so big, it must be full term. Whatever the reason, I don't care so long as she gets nice and strong and I can bring her home soon.
And lo, such a thing exists
