There are two things that stick most in my mind about Georgie's birth. The first was that I had an absolute bitch of a midwife with hairy underarms and a holier-then-thou attitude towards natural child birth. Secondly, despite Sr-bloody-Arnett's objections, Dr Scattini gave me an epidural at about 3.30 in the afternoon and let me tell you a big assed needle in your back, followed by that oh so beautiful warm sensation down your spine NEVER felt so good (shit mate, so I failed the childbirth class - I'm OK with that)!
Georgie's was born at 7.20pm, weighing in at 8lb 2 1/2 oz. Despite an enormous amount of pressure to name her, it took us 3 days and it was Arthur and my good friend Wendy who came up with her name.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GG
