New thread for well-wishers to leave messages! And for Southsea to leave links to photos of the Pebble (hint hint) [you don't have to Southsea)

pics are just gorgeous <wipes away a wee tear> and you look radiant!

I wish I had looked that well after any of my three births, even after an elective section I looked like I had been dragged through a hedge backwards confused

lovely photos!

duchesse Sun 13-Feb-11 15:00:54

Ooh he looks like a fine little chap! He looks bigger than 4lbs definitely.

Congratulations! Beautiful photos, especially the one of the kangaroo care.

He looks absolutely gorgeous!

And OP-you´re looking pretty good as well, considering what you´ve been through!

Not sure where you'd buy them in the USA but you can buy special pumping bras from express yourself mums - I think they are sourced from the USA so you may be able to order one from a US website.


My friend runs the website and they give support / help to those struggling particularly with premmies.

Congratulations to you all. He's lovely .

Lovely photos. What a gorgeous baby grin. You look so happy.

Yesterday's mission accomplished: got you a copy of The News to mark the event. Fabulous front page story about a local drug baron grin. Bet you're missing home!

Also, have a pebble from the beach for you. I'll write Thomas on it, date and time in my bestest writing - like a Not on the High Street special but crappier grin.

Oh congratulation south sea. I remember your initial post about waters breaking but then lost track of you. Am so pleased to hear of the arrival of thomas. X

Aw....He looks absolutely perfect and i have to agree with other posters - you look soooo relaxed and fabulous, and not at all like you should after all you have been through!
<<kampakat makes note to remember hair brush for post birth photos...>>

Hey Southsea, have got us a big table at the 10th Hole <<pats chair>> but did you know they dont allow prams or pushchairs grrrr - if 200 of us turn up all with a buggy do you think they would get scared enough to let us in?

kampakat Sun 13-Feb-11 15:59:55

just saw your posts knottylocks what a fabulous idea about the pebble. My eyes are leaking grin

TheOldestCat Sun 13-Feb-11 16:03:43

Congratulations to you all and welcome to little Thomas. What lovely pictures.

Congratulations from another long term lurker. Thomas looks a bonny chap (as my Mum would say) and you look great after all you've gone through. Hope they discharge him soon and all the best for the trip home!
