And no, Pip is not her real name, but we do call her it. She was born after 12 and a half hours of labour and just half an hour after the scheduled meeting with the consultant to discuss c sections. Much like both her mum and dad, she likes to work to a deadline. We stayed in hospital for four days as Pip had jaundice following her birth. Both of us were surprised and delighted to have a daughter. Birth story to follow if people are interested.
