And I feel terrible for only now updating you guys!! But on the 22nd of June 2016 at 3.24pm weighing 5 pounds 13 ounces, I gave birth to the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen, my little Alice Elizabeth Mavis Jones and seriously, she is amazing!
I was officially in labour for 11 hours and 28 minutes. It was the most amazing, scary, anxious experience I have ever gone through and it is really true you forget the pain instantly. I understand why big families exist, I now want a huge family and be surrounded by children, grandchildren, the lot!
I won’t go into the birth details, but it was a long process. It all started kicking off 17th of June and didn’t really start going until the 21st of June in the evening/afternoon. When I was eventually allowed up on the delivery suit I was greeted with some amazing members of staff and our midwife Ceri, we couldn’t have had anyone better! She was fantastic and I am hoping shortly to go and visit her up on the ward now that Alice has fully settled into being part Davies & Jones.
I look forward to updating you all on her adventure, she’s just wow… I still can’t get over her. They don’t tell you about this kind of love, it’s something totally different, more intense and consumable.
