Austin James Matthew was born on 6th February at 11.19pm. I was induced at Warwick Hospital at midday and although it took a while to get going, it was VERY quick at the end. After having some lasting negative feelings about Evelina’s birth, I definitely feel better about everything now that Austin is born.
He was a healthy 8lbs 13ozs and everything went well although we still have an ongoing issue with his renal pelves being dilated. Despite our general anxiety about this and our concern for him being on antibiotics longterm, the medical professionals all seem very relaxed about this issue and it appears to be a relatively common issue.
Evelina is thoroughly enjoying being a big sister and our home is definitely fuller and complete with Austin here. My heart is bursting.
