Lexie Amelia Burdett born 30/01/14 by c-sec at 13:35 weighing 6lb 13oz. Still in recovery as I lost a lot of blood, they should have had me out by half 6 but as a result of not giving me enough meds or water and no food I've now got a temperature and am dehydrated and feel absolutely awful. Ian had to go home at 4pm and wasn't allowed to bring Caitlin back to see me, phone has died so can't even contact my family or friends , just waiting to see a doctor now and they're trying to find me a bed somewhere so I can get some rest. Lexie is an angel taken to breast feeding wonderfully and has been fast asleep for hours. I'll update tomorrow hopefully xxx

Aww welcome to the world little Lexie Amelia! How wonderful! She's beautiful LH, well done! How you doing today? Hope they've sorted out your pain and are looking after you with the meds that you need.
saw my consultant today and he's happy to leave me now as bubba is well and I've been well so no plans for induction atm but he's seeing me again the day before my due date just in case nothings happened naturally then probably be induced as they don't really want me to go over my due date.
Wow, so pleased for you, enjoy your family, bet Caitlin is well excited. Roll on the next 4 weeks for me, we just want to meet our little one now too xxx
take care hun xxx
