The Frequently Asked Questions
||Yes, Estelle and
Nick Waterman are having a baby!
||"End of Jan 2001".
||Estelle wants a "home birth", so, with any luck, it'll be at our
house. If we DO have to go into hospital with any last-minute
complications, it'll be St Peter's Hospital Chertsey, which has our
nearest labour ward.
|Boy or Girl?
||No idea. IN THEORY they could have told/shown us at any of the
later ultrasound scans, but many hospitals, including ours, refuse to
tell you these days. Apparently someone has been sued, or they've had
parents choosing to abort if they've had too many girls/boys, or
something like that. To be honest, we don't care, and would rather
find out on "D-Day" anyway.
||Ages ago, we decided that if our first child was a girl, Nick would
choose the name, and if it's a boy, Estelle will. Nick's
provisionally chosen the name "Kathryn". Estelle is still thinking of
boy's names, but the best she's thought of so far is "Aidan".

|So how are mother and baby?
||Estelle's fine, though obviously feeling very "big", with only a few
weeks to go. Baby is fine, quite active, and "fully engaged", which
basically means it's head down, in the ideal position, ready to be
born, and it's seriously unlikely to turn back to a breech position
or anything. Everything is looking good!
If you'd like to be emailed, as soon as the baby is born, please stick
