Introducing Amy Olivia Haunts

At 11.43 this morning Amanda gave birth to our first daughter Amy Olivia Haunts. Her contractions started around 2am and I drove her to hospital around 6am. By 8am she was fully dilated and she arrived at 11.43.

Amy was 6lb 8oz in weight and is doing really well, sporting a nice head of hair :-) Amanda is also doing really well. I am so proud of Amanda. She wanted an epidural but because her dilation's happened so quickly it was too late so she had to proceed with no pain relief except gas and air (which was practically useless) and a tens machine.

Amanda had to have an operation after the birth as they had problems getting the placenta out, so she had to go under a general anaesthetic. The operation was a complete success and she has recovered well.

I am not going to write too much more as I am exhausted and want to get to bed so I can get back to the hospital in the morning. In this post are a few pics of Amy so family and friends can see her. There will be plenty more pics.

Amanda should be coming home either tomorrow or Saturaday.
