It's been a busy couple of days. Gemma went into hospital on Wednesday evening with contractions that had become around ten minutes apart. Over the next 27 hours they slowly intensified, but upon examination on Thursday night she was found to be still only 3cm.
Then all of a sudden things accelerated, and Arthur George had his appearance into the world at 2.31am, weighing 6lbs 13oz.
I am pleased to report that mother, baby, and indeed father and sister are all doing fine, and all grandparents, aunties and uncles involved are thrilled.
