Ellis has arrived! Charlotte went into Lincoln Hospital yesterday late afternoon when contractions were every 5 minutes. The birth did not go well as Ellis was in the wrong position with back to back (not sure what that means). This caused Charlotte a lot of pain throughout the night and she was given pain killers and early this morning when Ellis had not made an appearance it was decided to operate. Around 8 am she went into theatre and Ellis emerged at 7lbs 8 ounces (I think). Both are fine. Suraj sounded quite exhausted (it’s tough on the men too!). We shall travel up this afternoon to see her and Ellis, and hopefully she would have had a sleep and a chance to recover. It looks like she will be in hospital for 3-4 days.
