Annie Charlotte is here!!

Post by BelB » Sun Dec 26, 2004 2:09 am

HI all,
Well, has taken me almost seven weeks to post our exciting news, but I got there eventually!!
Annie Charlotte was born on the 8th of November, at 8:32am, and weighed a whopping nine pounds. She is just so beautiful, we are MADLY in love with her, she is growing rapidly, and now weighs 13 pounds 10 (six kilo's at six weeks..YIKES!!!)
I had an elective c section given my miscarriage history, I just wanted piece of mind that I was going down a nice predictable course of action for our little girl and for me!!
IVF is such an amazing technology, we are so very grateful!
