Pregnancy Update: HE'S HERE!

Well, a little update on my pregnancy... I've had my baby! A gorgeous little baby boy called Dexter on 24/11/13 weighing in at 4lb 12 oz. 

Some of you guys may have known that for some weeks I've been quite unwell which took a downturn last weekend when my pre-eclampsia started breaking down my kidneys and everything else. I won't lie, it was the scariest thing ever, I never knew your body could shut down in the space of a few hours. Sunday evening I was taken down for an emergency caesarean where baby Dex was born at 34+4. He's tiny but doing well on the special care baby unit for premature babies. I'm still in hospital, actually I've forgotten what day/week/month it is now I've been in here so long! 

So yes, for the next month or so I will definitely be taking a backseat from blogging until I'm feeling a lot better. Let's just say it wasn't a standard caesarean. I'll go into this in more depth in my full delivery post later. 

Hopefully Dex should be fit to come home in a couple of weeks, and me hopefully around the weekend. 

HAPPY DEXMAS EVERYONE!
