Well, it's been a long journey, and in common with the journey as a whole, it was a bit rocky at the end, but we finally have our baby! Our beautiful daughter was born on 26 April, weighing a hefty 9 lbs 12 oz. She had a bit of trouble at the beginning and spent a few days in the NICU, where she looked as though she could eat most of the other babies for breakfast! We have now been home for a few days, and we're doing great. She has been charming everyone she meets, and is being totally spoilt by all and sundry. She's sleeping peacefully on my chest at the moment, gathering her strength for the long night ahead!
Thank you all so much for your support over the last couple of years - it has meant so much to me, and has kept me going through some of the hardest times of my life. I still think of and pray for you - those who already have their own bundles of joy, and those who are still waiting - despite being so rubbish at keeping up with blogging these days.
