I gave birth to my beautiful baby girl Helena today. First started trying in September 2016 and suffered three miscarriages since then. Almost gave up trying at the start of this year but got my BFP in February and today she is finally here! DH and I are over the moon to be parents at last, and I don't even care that I had an awful 26 hour labour followed by an unplanned C section because I AM A MUM!! Here is my amazing little girl!

Just enjoy every snuggle.
Congratulations also in making it through the labour. Women are tough! flowersbrewcake
If there was a toast emoji, I would've included that, as I lived off the stuff after giving birth!
What a beautiful little girl you have.
