Well, that was quite possibly the most rubbish liveblog in the history of blogging, I do apologise.
Anyway, I am delighted to announce that the Blue Kitten is now in the house, born at 9.06pm yesterday* and weighing 7 pounds exactly. Here's a photo:
She looks a bit gingery there but her hair is actually black.
You can see another pic of the Kitten in ET mode here.
Thanks to you all for your comments throughout yesterday, they were really very encouraging and helpful. Turns out that even the most straightforward birth (as thankfully this was) is a bit of an ordeal, eh?
* Which means she shares a birthday with both Dave and Delirium. Auspicious!
