Meet our boy!!! (Baby pic alert)

Well, he just couldn't wait to join this crazy, magical, spinning globe called Earth! C-Section was scheduled for the 8th, but I went into labour last night at 38 + 3 and Asher, our son, arrived by section at 11.04am today, weighing 6 pounds and 11 ounces. Needless to say we are smitten!

I am almost 44 years old and it has taken hubby and I 4 years to make it this far. Donor egg ivf helped us turn a fairytale into a reality, we are so grateful. NEVER give up! The journey may be arduous but the reward is beyond measure xxx

You all have my utmost admiration and wishes for your success and happiness - you are true champions!

EDIT: just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has sent through such heart-warming, kind and touching messages. Each one is important to me, I so appreciate you all taking the time and trouble to respond xxx

No iv been taking a break too. But when I log on to go to weightloss forum I see the posts here can't help myself check what's going on.

We know your not been rude you must be so tired now too. As long as we get a pic of your beauties when they've arrived that's enough for us.

I am super tired constantly now . The SPd is at its worst and sometimes I can cry with the pain of it.. ironically always seems to be when I’m trying to get to sleep 😆 I’ve been told I’m not to sleep on my right and only my left but I have a baby on top and on the bottom. So it’s just how I can get comfortable now . When I come on here I can’t help but try and support people either ☺️😘 xx
