Yes, baby Rebekah finally made her entrance into the world last week, 13 days overdue and weighing 7lb 6oz. Not a great labour (induced) but not too bad either, and no pain relief again, although not by design (I'd just decided I wanted an epidural when she decided she was coming - the anaesthetist didn't even make it in time). My hospital report, under pain relief, just says 'attendant support' (wonderful husband!) but there was also a bit of knitting in there too, until the cannula in the back of my hand made it impossible and I had to give up. I can recommend it though.
So we are now in that peculiar version of hell when all three children are up in the night for varying lengths of time, and I have no idea what day it is or what time, and just sleep when I can. Admittedly we are no strangers to sleeplessness, given Hannah's ideas on when and how much to sleep, but unsurprisingly it just got quite a bit worse last week. Just as well these babies are damned cute then.
But I have discovered one thing that makes the nights bearable - knitting podcasts! I can listen whilst feeding (it's a two handed job at the moment a lot of the time, and takes about an hour per feed) and get my knitting fix that way, even if I can't actually do any knitting. My current favourite is Lime & Violet, but I'm still trying different ones out.
