Hi girls!

Just a quick one to wish everyone a fantastic xmas - hope you've all been good so Santa brings everything you want!! :D

Elodie - great to hear from you

Jules - LofL? I am soooo jealous! Make the most of it!

Nickie - well done on the weight loss - don't stress too much over xmas, they reckon the average person eats 7000 calories on xmas day alone :shock: Just enjoy yourself!

Jen - sorry to hear about the emotional stuff, but better out than in as they say. I didn't realise how emotional I was about it all until afterwards, but time does heal and 2008 is our year after all!

Judy - anymore news on the donor?

Hi to everyone else, hope you all have a fantasic xmas and a fab New Year. I am going to enjoy my lay in tomorrow now I've finished work - lots of eating, drinking and merriness to be done!!

Kate :D

Hi Girls

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL!!! XXXX

Thanks to all of you for your wishes and kisses on the site and via Nikki.

By way of update we are all fine - absolutely knackered as feeding on demand and by jove is he a demanding little fella - but loving every minute of it. Justin is in his element and being an absolute star helping round the house etc and neither of us can still quite believe he is ours for keeps.

My waters broke Sunday 23rd 6.10 am and contractions started at 1pm. Arrived at hosiptal at 3.50pm and was fully dilated and pushing at 6pm. The gas and air was taken off me at that stage and I wasn't allowed any more pain relief as too late but then the contractions slowed down and I was pushing for 3.5 hrs before having to be cut and have a ventouse delivery. We both found it quite traumatic but it was worth it 10 times over.

I am posting a pic or two of William on photobucket in a mo.

Hope you all enjoyed your Xmas and New Year, and NIKKI hope you feel better today chick (and Mark) and JEN I am wishing you total good health and all the luck in the world for Barcelona.

I will be in touch again soon. xxx

Happy New Year Phoenixes!

JULIE -CONGRATULATIONS!! Fantastic news honey, I'm sorry to hear you had to have episiotomy and ventouse but as you say, all worth it!! And you were right - a boy!! I am still b/feeding and will pm you about it. I am impressed you have been on to post - must get better organised in 2008 as been awful at time managing since Mia arrived!! Big hugs to you all xxx

Kate - hope you had a great xmas and are all ready for tmt in Jan/Feb. Are you back at school/wrk yet?

Nicki - dying to hear all about your Edinburgh break but glad you had a lovely time. Was I right bout where you were standing - Calton Hill?? What did you get up to at New Year??

Jen - best of luck at IM net week. So glad you ad dh are taking time out after everything. Have a great time, just you and dh, catching uo and chilling out with each other. Hope the throat continues to clear up xxx

Judy - a big hi to you, am trying to get to speed with what's happening with your tmt - donor egg pilot cycle right?? All the best and hoping 2008 is your year xxx

Gail - how is gorgeous Katie?? What did you get up to at New Year and how is te new job going? Have you started yet? Hope to see more photos on photo bucket.

Souris - congratulations on passing thro the 1st stage of the adoption process. All the best for the next stage and hoping you have your precious bundle soon xxx

Lucy - hope you are well, if you still pop in now and again xxx

Mia is now 14 weeks old and is absolutely gorgeous! Dh is totally smitten (as am I) and she is so content and happy most of the time. Have been enjoying taking her to baby massage and shopping! and hope to start swimming sometime in next few months. She is sleeping thro the nights mostly now but such a hungry horace!

Dh and I have made the decision to move back to the west of Scotland to be nearer all our parents so a big move is on the cards at some point. We will both need new jobs and a new house so will all no doubt take quite a bit of time but we are planning it now. We have both been re assessing our priorites and would love to be close enough to our families (who live in the same town as each other) for them to see Mia grow up. So I am excited about that! Not having them close has been hard!

Dh had 5 days off next week so we can't wait to get some quality family time. dh is in reatil so we've hardly seen him in the last 3 weeks.

I hope 2008 is the year for all phoenixes. Wishing everyone health, happiness and precious bundles!!

Lots of love to you all xxx
