Thank you!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone, I am just writing to update you on the arrival of my baby boy Henry!!! He was two weeks late and even though my 3rd baby had a nightmare delivery ending in an emergency c section!!! However he is absolutly gorgeous and i am so relieved to say my restless legs have dissapeared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After 9 months of tears, and sleeping on the sofa, then dislocating my arm, nearly 3 weeks after my c section I finally feel like my old self again. I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of you who wrote words of support on this site, they truely helped me through the most torturous nights of my life! I feel guilty that my RLS has gone and you are all still suffering, if i could magic it away for all of you I so would and will never forget how life distrupting it is. Henry sleeps well and i am now getting more sleep than when i was pregnant. Thank you all once again and i wish you all well and hope you are all not suffering too badly xxxxx

  • Maisie, I was just thinking about you earlier today and wondering if you'd had your baby! I can't tell you how delighted I am for you - both for little Henry and that your RLS has gone! I went thro a really rough time with RLS when I was pregnant with my second child and it continued when I was trying to sit and feed her. Eventually it eased but it was awful at times! Have you got girls or boys already? I had a boy first and really wanted a girl next so when Anna was born, I was so amazed and delighted that I'd got what I wanted, that I forgave her for all the trouble she'd caused! (Only kidding!). Many congratulations and I'm so glad the forum was able to provide some useful support.

    Best wishes

I had a nightmare having him, he is a big boy at 9ib 10, I would love more children even after that delivery however he is def my last the RLS were so bad and made me so miserable I just couldn't do it again. I am so happy he is here safe and my legs are back to normal again xxxx
