Congratulations Gemma on your fantastic news and welcome to Thomas (what a big baby)!

He sounds like a complete joy - enjoy being a Mummy! And it's a real blessing that he's taken to breastfeeding, believe me.

Take care.

Just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS!!!

I remember cycling with you back when you got your BFP and all that you went through during that cycle when you got ill. I can't believe how fast the time has flown by (well, for me anyway....maybe not for you!). I'm so glad you have your healthy baby now to show for it all!

Best wishes,

Gem....many congratulations on Thomas' safe arrival. So glad everything went well in the end and he's here, your bouncing baby boy!

Come join us on the parents board when you're ready. We swap lots of info and tips....but catch your breath first!! I hope your visitors are helping vs. creating more work, you need to take it easy for the next 6 weeks. Don't rush it either, it's major surgery.

Take care and enjoy every moment of being a Mommy.

Many, many congratulations to you and DP and welcome to Thomas. I am so pleased for you.

Take it very easy for as long as you can. I rested more after this section than the other two and I have recovered much quicker.

Above all, enjoy him.

Love Fiona

Hi Gem,
CONGRATULATIONS!!! Well done! I'm sooooo pleased for you! Welcome little (?) Thomas Adam! I can't believe it's all happened! Remember we had our egg collection and embryo transfer on the same day in April last year!
I actually gave't birth on 27th December to little Lucy Marret Pollie; she was 10 days early and weighed 5.8lbs! Hadn't expected to have her 'last' year, so it was all bit of a rush, but wonderful wonderful surprise!
Enjoy family life and take care,
