A friend of mine gave birth to a new little daughter last night, her third child. She was booked to have a Caesarean today (eleven days past her due date, nothing's been happening) because the doctors were worried that the baby was too big, but she was very keen to deliver naturally.
So I texted her this morning to wish her luck for the delivery today.
She responded to say she'd gotten her natural delivery....and the baby weighed....
......5.3 kg (11 pounds, 11 oz in old scale).
Around two and a half times what Rosie weighed at birth.
Now that I am starting to pick my jaw up off the floor, I might see if I can find out what they have named her so I can write the congratulations card.
