Hi Guys,

Hey have been posting, but have been wondering where you are at!! Bella I thought you had gone into hiding!!!! And who knows where Sue is!!!


Yes very close now, maybe closer than I thought it would be, as I am booked in for a planned c-section tomorrow :shock: :shock: :shock:

Am trying to keep an open mind, it certainly isn't the way I envisaged the end of the road to the whole pregnancy journey, so its definatly with some mixed feelings that have opted for this option, but the important bit is the new beginning after the birth, so holding onto that and looking forward to meeting her!!!

Take care and I will keep you posted!!!

Yeah, Mel!! How exciting. Tomorrow's the big day, huh? I didn't mind my c-section at all. I recovered quickly from it. I hope you find it that way as well. I can't wait to hear all about it when you get home! Good luck and get ready to shed some tears when you first hear your little one cry!!! It's awesome!

Hi Mel
Don't know if you remember me, but we tested together back in November last year. Just wanted to say good luck and I hope your bundle of joy arrives healthy.
As you can see, our 2nd attempt at IVF seems to have worked so far.
Good luck my dear

Hi Mel,

I'm sure you're probably up now unable to sleep, in a few hours you will be holding your precious daughter.

Relax and everything will be just fine. Looking forward to seeing the pictures and finding out how big she is!

Take care

Hugs

Hi All

Thanks so much for all the lovely messages! I have passed over to the other side .... heavenly heavenly motherhood, am sooooooooooooooo on cloud 9!!!!

Our beautiful precious daughter, Maia Ella Rennie arrived on Wednesday morning at 9.49 am, weighing a healthy 4.6 kgs (10.5 lbs) with a mop of black hair, absolutely ravounous appetite and a healthy set of lungs.

She is amazing and we adore her, since we got her home 2 days ago she has been an angelic beauty, slightly less angelic during the night, but still gives us lots of rest with big 4 and 5 hour regular sleeps.

First 5 days were hell in understaffed crowded hospital on shared ward with a million babies! And had no milk for her for 5 days from the c-section i guess, and given she was so big and all it was distressing that she just couldn't get enough food, really howled 24/ 7 and lost more than 10% of her body weight. I really didn't want to give her formula and we have persisted the two of us on getting the b/f thing working, and have finally turned a corner, I am no longer practially strangling her to get her to latch on, and my poor chewed to pieces boobs are recovering. She is putting on weight and behaving like a real angel!!!!

Wow what a wonderful wonderful place to be, still can't beleive that she is finally here!!!!

Bec P, course I remember you. I am soooooooooooooo happy for you!!!! Really. I have actually snuffled around and checked a couple of your posts but lost track of what was happening this cycle for you. Was really hoping for you that things would happen for you this time. Thats great news. When did you get your BFP. Welcome to pregnancy!!

Take care all. Have posted pics of our lovely Maia on the photo bucket. Looking forward to catching up on all the posts and emails.
