No, this is not a second-pregnancy announcement – I am just at the stage where I am thinking about whether I can have another one. My boy is turning one in just over a week.

My son was born exactly a month ago today. It was a more difficult birth than I had anticipated – we knew he was big, but he was also slow to descend, so in the end they used forceps to bring him out (and an episiotomy). He also had his hand in front of his… Continue reading So The Baby Is Out
