Yeah, baby

Posted by: kirwan In: During

Our daughter was born at about 11:20 and is all fine. She will need to be kept in for 24 hours though due to having had a little poo before coming out. The placenta hasn’t come out though, so Tracey will need to have it removed manually. Hope that won’t prove too problematic. We’re all […]

We have movement

Posted by: kirwan In: During

During the night, a week post Bump’s due date, Tracey started having contractions so it looks like we’re on the way. She also “had a show” during the night. For those not up with the lingo, that a sign that the moment’s nearing, not something to do with cabaret. At the moment the contractions are […]
