Shes had a hard PG with her BP being a bit arratic so yesterdya they kept kept her in afte rher ante-natal appt.

I knew as soon as the phone rang it was going to her her.

She was very quiet and I said in virtual whisper "Are you Ok?"


"Have you had it??"


"Ohhhhh what did you have??"

"We've got a baby layla"

And we both burst out crying. She really wanted a girl too....I'm shaking I'm so pleased for her.

I really cannot tell you how happy I am for her, for both of them

Way back at the start of her PG I said "If you have a girl you understnd shes going to have to be my surregate duaghter, don't you??"

We giggled and laughed about us being so grown up at having babies and being married and stuff.

She said on the phone when she rang " You've got your surregate daughter too"

Bloody hell..I'm welling up again....I love my frined, shes the best

I hope to go and see her on Sunday, Dh is out most of the day though so I have to get over my fear of driving such a long way.

She's worth though so I will be going.
