Arrival of baby Kieran

Finally, my pregnant days are over with the arrival of Kieran on last Saturday, 18 April. So now the secret is out. Baby is a boy. We named him Kieran Lim Rui Xian. I selected the English name while Andy chose the Chinese name. I had to be induced on my 37 weeks as my gynae said that his head is a little big and it would be quite difficult for me to have a natural birth if I were to wait till nature takes over. So I had to be induced early. Finally after about six hours of drip and with some difficulty (vacuum has to be used), baby Kieran is finally out. I must say that this second birth is a little more difficult than the first. I delivered Georgia in about three and half hours. Well as the saying goes, no two pregnancies are the same and it sure applies to birth experience too!

Georgia is the most excited among the family to see Kieran. She has been waiting patiently all these months and now she is finally a big sister and she's so, so happy to see her baby brother. I know Georgia will be a good sister.

I write more soon when my stitches doesn't hurt so much (I'm sitting on a float as I type).
