Sunday July 2nd 2006

I was born at 1:21 pm on July 2nd 2006 at Frances Perry House. I weighed in at just over 3.5 kilos.

Mums water broke at 5:20 pm Saturday 1st whilst my parents were locking up the house to go get their dinner. They phoned the hospital and they asked us to come in. We picked up Maricar and drove into the hospital. Mums contractions started just as we arrived; around 6:30 pm.

Over the course of the next 19 hours Mums contractions went from 5 minutes apart to just under 1 minute. Mum & Dad all got a little sleep during the night; Mum had an epidural around 11pm to make her more comfortable. We watched England go out (again) as well as France go through with Portugal.

Mum became fully dilated around 11 am Sunday 2nd. As I was OP (head facing up), the Doc knew the delivery would take a little longer so Mum didn't start pushing until 12:15 pm. With the help of a vacuum pump (I still didn't want to come out), I baby was born a little after 1 hour.

Both Mum and I are doing well and we moved to our room at FPH. If they continue to improve we'll be moving to the maternity section of the Sofitel Melbourne so we can get to know each other in comfortable surroundings.

If you'd like to welcome me to the world feel free to drop me a line at
