Kahurangi James Lee Barr Cormack, made an early arrival at 2.55pm today (20/11/06) NZ time. He weighed in at 3.040kg, which is pretty darn good for 36 weeks. He’s doing fine, hes down in the neo-natal unit but has successfully managed to breastfeed. Mum is fine too, in fact they are both sleeping which is why I could sneak out and update the blog and get some sleep myself.
Not sure how long they’ll be at the hospital, probably 2 or 3 days, until they are sure everything is fine.
Laurel’s waters broke at about 1.30am on the 20th .. so we rang the obstetrician who told us to head in to the delivery suites. We got there about 2am ish, and after monitoring for a while went upstairs to the ward. By 8am laurel had dilated to 5cm’s so it was back down to the delivery suites we went.
And by 2pm she was fully dilated, and by 2.55pm Kahurangi was born. I think we are both still in a slight state of shock, we thought we had a month to go. I blame the xmas parade yesterday, I reckon he got confused, thought it was xmas and thought crap im late, im getting out.
Anyway photos to come when Ive had some sleep.
Kahurangi shows what he thinks of the feeding tube. He yanked it out and made this sign when the nurse said she was going to put it back in.
