This past week has been one of hospitals, being ill , stress and ending is happiness.
Last week I spent the day in hospital have injections for my very bad back. After I seemed to pick up a nasty bug which made me feel really ill.
It added to the stress of what was going on as my daughter's baby made up her mind to arrive 5 weeks early!!
Trouble was she gave mummy a few issues before she was born. My daughter had no idea her water had been going over a couple of weeks! We live about 45 mins from the hospital so every time she went in and labour didn't get going they were sending her home. I was so stressed as being sick I couldn't be much help.Then she rang me at 4am and said she was in so much pain she needed to go in.
So one min the call was 2cm and then all of a sudden it went to 6cm and the call to "come now" went out. So a rushed job to cover the 45 min drive without getting stuck behind a tractor or slow car lol.
I thought I would arrived and she would have had the baby but no by some miracle I got there in time. I have had two babies but to be honest the delivery time is all abit fuzzy lol. So getting to see my granddaughter born was so special.
They thought she would need help being so early, but no she was a fighter and needed no help at all. Mum was a bit shell shocked and ended up in theatre as she had some issues, but is fine now.
So welcome to world Grace Rose weighing in at 4 pounds 14 oz and perfect in every way.
Mum and Grace had to stay in hospital as she was so tiny but was doing so well,. Then she developed a little jaundice and had to stay in a little longer, mum was upset but little fighter was doing grand.
So after a very long week Grace and mummy and daddy got to go home, as a wee family. The babies at home were very excited lol
So how lucky am I to two beautiful grandchild en. A grandson Nathan and now granddaughter Grace.
Huge congratulations to my daughter Natalie and her partner Ian on the birth of their daughter.
