Here’s the baby!

Hello everyone!  Long time no post.
So, I finally had my baby on January 7th, a little boy weighing 8 lb 4 oz. I went into hospital Sunday morning to be induced and then after hours  and hours of labour and 3 hours of pure pushing, I had to have an emergency caeserian as his head wouldn’t turn n he basically wasn’t coming out the natural way. Ouch!
He’s now 11 days old and I love him so much.
We called him Henry James. 
The weight is still dropping off and I am down to 11.9 stones,  73.9 kilos. I cant even remember what my lowest weight was last year- but I would like to weigh 10.5 stone by the summer.
I have not been eating particularly healthy but am trying to get some fruit and veg in every day and I am drinking a lot of fluids.
I will be starting dukan/ hflc again soon, I want to slowly give up the rubbish so it’s not such a shock to my body- im breastfeeding and feel quite weak sometimes so dont want to punish myself too soon!
I haven’t checked your blogs much and I cant promise I’ll blog regularly- but I’ll do my best!   I have missed blogging and reading blogs and I’ve just been reading my old posts.   It’s great as there’s so many things u don’t remember- so it’s nice to have an online diary.

Take care all and blog soon


He’s the cutest!
