Introducing Scarlett Jacqueline Thomas

How they’re feeling:

Tina: “I feel amazing, it’s all so exciting. I’m still pumping with adrenaline and I can’t believe it’s happened. Even when Scarlett’s crying, and during the tired times, we’re both buzzing.

Ryan: “When she stares straight at us it makes us melt. I’m going to be so protective, she won’t be allowed out of the house until she’s 30 – and even then I’ll have to walk her everywhere!”

T: “No, I reckon she’ll have Ryan wrapped round her little finger.”

The Labour:

T: “Well, I woke up at 5am, rolled over and my contractions started. I rang the midwife and she said: ‘You’d better get down here now!'”

R: “I was [scared] when I saw what Tina was going through. We had a false alarm the week before but I knew this was different.”

The birth:

T: “My contractions started at four minutes, then they went straight to three minutes. I got to hospital at 6am and Scarlett was born at 8:28am, weighing 7lb and 1oz.”

R: “I had to rush home and get the pregnancy notes and when I got back, she was halfway there. It was the perfect labour – no gas and air, no epidural. She was just on all fours and going for it. She was glowing afterwards.”

T: “That was the healthiest I think I’ve ever looked – I looked great!”

Knowing the sex beforehand:

R: “No, I was convinced it was a boy. I was even calling the bump a he, which I feel bad about now. I love Scarlett to bits and wouldn’t change her for the world, she’s my little princess.”

Seeing her for the first time:

R: “It was surreal. I’ve never known a newborn to look so good, so well formed.”

T: “She looked just like Ryan, but with my toes.”

Choosing her name:

T: “My favourite film is Gone With The Wind and Scarlett O’Hara is such a dramatic character with this thick dark hair. I love the idea of my little Scarlett being feisty like her. Her middle name is Jacqueline, after Ryan’s nan, who knew about the baby but tragically passed away just before she was born.”

Suffering from postnatal depression:

T: ” It’s not been too bad. The day my milk came in, I felt a little shivery, hot and fed up. I just got a bit tired of all the visitors – we had nine in one day.”

Putting on pregnancy weight:

T: “Yes, when I first got pregnant I looked like a right jabba because I couldn’t tell anyone. After eight weeks, I couldn’t fit into my jeans and had to use a hair bobble to keep them together. I can’t wait to start wearing my old clothes again.”

Swapping notes with other Coronation Street parents:

T: “Yes, it’s nice talking to Julia Haworth, Andy Whyment and Jack P. Shepherd.”

R: “I spoke to Andy the other day, he’s made up.”
