3 weeks early at 15:09 on Saturday 13th June 2015, Myself and Chris welcomed our beautiful Baby Boy into the world weighing 7.1lb.
Introducing Noah Christopher Stephen Waddams.
We are both smitten and cant believe how lucky we are.
Given how tough the pregnancy has been I had a pretty easy labour! Blogs will follow on labour and birth as well as early motherhood when I get a chance
The four weeks since I had last seen the team had been four of the easier ones in terms of the epilepsy…I’m not saying it was great but I was doing ok, it would appear the med increase was finally doing something. I had a few days the week following the appointment where I felt like something was brewing but nothing came of it. I did however spend quite a lot of time in bed napping as the drug change was making me very sleepy. The week before this appointment Chris and I took the opportunity of no medical appointments to get away for two nights, not anywhere far, but just a bit of seaside fresh air. We remembered to pack the maternity notes so that there would be no mad dash if anything went wrong. But for once all went in our favour. I had auras both mornings we were away but neither amounted to anything. So it was a good break and it was lovely to spend some time being just a couple rather than everything being one medical appointment after another. However the pregnancy sickness hasn’t been any better in fact it has got worse again, lucky me and Chris!
