Murray David Nicholl
The short version is:
After 31 and a half hours of labour, Murray David Nicholl was born at 9.25am on Thursday the 1st of July 2010 weighing 7lbs 15.
He is absolutely gorgeous and I am so in love it is really quite hard to describe.

He is Soo Perfect!
I will do a longer post once I am a bit more settled into home - feeling a bit overwhelmed not having a buzzer to be able to get a m/wife to help - and once I've got my head a bit more around my birthing experience. It was all a little traumatic. I had hoped to be au naturel as much as poss, but if needed intervention would do what I needed to do. As poor wee Murray refused to tuck his head in and turn around, Forceps and a spinal were finally required to get him out, but not until I did pretty Herculean effort for about 30 hours to get him out myself. Let me run an Ultra any day of the week - let me tell you. Al is pretty proud of the fact that throughout this effort my HR didn't go much above 60BPM! He nearly wet himself when the m/wife asked if I usually kept myself fit!
Any hoo! I'm off for a snooze before Murray needs another feed.
