    Hi everyone, sorry about not posting for such a long time! I have a good reason, I promise.

    And that reason is

    Attachment 233758

    Scott Harry Fletcher was born on Saturday 20th July at 6:38am, weighing 7lb5oz.

    I've been in hospital for a very long time, not only the mental health unit over the past 3 weeks but also having to stay in the maternity ward after the birth. Now we are home and I'm feeling very good, even if a little sleepy. It's good to not have a big bumpy baby belly any more, and the most amazing little man to show for all the trouble over the last few weeks.

    Birth story (not for faint hearted!):

    Spoiler:
    Show
    I went into labour on Thursday evening after my sweep, with my waters breaking at 1:30 on Friday morning. It was a long, drawn out process as I was in early labour for all of Friday until 12:30am, when I was taken to the delivery suite. Scott was in a back-to back position, when he should have been lying with his back to the left, so it was very traumatic for me. I got very high on gas-and-air and apparently said some really funny things, and finally had an epidural which unfortunately didn't numb much of the pain as it normally would because of the pressure of his position. He got stuck on the way out too so the midwives had to use a suction cup on his head to pull him out. When he was finally born and it was all over he was absolutely perfect!

    After the birth I had to stay in hospital for 48 hours due to my medication. On the second day the doctors found he had a heart murmur and he was looking jaundiced, so I had to stay in another night. It was the worst night imaginable, waiting for the news. My bf has a heart condition which affects every male in his family, which means they generally die in their 50s, so it was awful, awful news. The next morning the blood results came back and a doctor did a check on him. There was nothing causing his jaundice and his heart murmur had gone! We came home yesterday at 4:30, knackered but relieved.


    I really want to thank Tyrion_Lannister and Anonymous#1 for their awesome support over the last few weeks, so if you guys see this I appreciate what you've done for me more than you will ever know.

    Congratulations x

    I can't rep you. :cry2:

    I also realise that typing this post is a little pointless given all the texts we've exchanged over the past week (and fingers crossed your card will arrive soon!), but still... Massive massive congratulations lovely, I'm so so proud of you, and your little boy is absolutely gorgeous! I really hope things continue to go well for the three of you, and hopefully now that he's out, you'll get the mental health support you need as well.

    I'm either on here on via text (text is probably quicker) whenever you need me, and I'm always happy to listen and support. And will always be happy to hear Scott stories come to that. He really is an asbolute sweetie! You and your partner both look really happy and like a lovely little family.

    Also, you definitely don't need to thank me for my support! You've been a wonderful source of support to me, even on Thursday evening when you'd started going into labour and I needed someone. Really can't thank you enough for that! :hugs:

    Are you sure she's looking down on you, or do you just think she is? Why would she have any reason to look down on you? You're lovely and wouldn't harm a fly :hugs:

    I don't think I ever learnt them to begin with

    Dodgeball injury is the perfect excuse to wear a bandage though so I think that's sorted. And most of my group think I'm 17. Naww.

    She waited till I sat down with toast to tell me to hang the washing out cos SHE wanted to use the washer, then carried on watching her programme so it clearly wasn't urgent. She also doesn't talk to me unless I talk first. And just generally makes me feel really uncomfortable

    Dive
    And
    Dodge


    That's the only thing I learnt from my school PE days when we used to watch the film dodgeball haha.

    It's a fab excuse, I'm sure they won't realise :nah:

    Can I just ask ( I swears it's not supposed to sound rude or anything) but is this kind of a private club? Like everyone seems to know each other and is always like "I'm on skype later" "I sent you stuff in the post" "Did you get my texts" etc. Do you all know each other outside TSR? I was thinking of starting a new group cause I feel you guys all know each other and I feel like I'm imposing or something cause I don't know peoples back story or that I'm reading peoples private chats cause I'm like not part of the group and your discussing home life and stuff. I hope I haven.t offended or anything.

    New group for newbies?
