Hurra, der Markus Gerry Moran ist da! Geboren am 14. August 2009 um 13.28 Uhr, 4030 g und 49 cm. Helen und Alan freuen sich riesig.

Just had my thank you cards back from the printers, using the text above, plus this gorgeous photo by Clare Pearson.

Thank you one more time to everyone who has commented on my posts, emailed me offline, or sent me cards and presents in the mail. I have felt so supported and loved by everyone throughout the long journey to get here.

Our IVF journey started just over a year ago on 19th September. It is just amazing to look back and reflect on everything that has happened. Project Baby came full circle today, in that I had my 6 week post natal check up with my Doctor. Everything is basically fine, I have a few more prescriptions to pick up, but basically have the all clear to start exercising gently, taking a bath, etc etc. It feels good to have this sign off!

She was delighted to meet Markus, as was the receptionist / nurse. What I really love is hearing people cooing over my baby, especially in Swiss German. The receptionist was just saying things like "oh, you're hungry.. don't worry, Mummy's on the way", but it just sounded so cool! I am such a doting, slushy mama and I love it :)
