Huge Congrats Pinklady flowers hope she is home soon, thats quite a good weight isn't it?

Must have been very scary!

PseudoBadger Fri 16-Aug-13 09:54:33

Well after all the new baby excitement it has promoted me to get my arse in gear, especially considering I'm at reasonable risk of similar circumstances.
So I'm going to wake up properly, drag DS to Brent Cross and maybe even the big shiny Mothercare at Edmonton and buy a few things for my bag.
