Congratulations guys.
Shame about pics, but totally understand.

The time-zone thing is perfectly normal. Night time (when mum is laying still) is play-time in the womb. Takes a few days to readjust.

Enjoy your time with her. We'll miss you, but she would miss you more!

Congratulations!

I'm supportive of your views about putting pictures in the public space, including any decision not to do so until she is of an age to make a fully informed decision for herself.

I also urge you to resist taking any pictures of yourself mooning her.

Good name. If the next one is a boy are you going to call him Steel?

Default Congratulations, lovely news!

Congratulations on the birth of beautiful Sapphire and well done to MrsMSE for all the hard work (I'm sat here feeding my beautiful 9 month old daughter so I completely empathise with the interrupted nights). Enjoy your precious first few days together as a new family, with an even stronger love and admiration for each other and so much love for your little baby that you think you'll burst with pride and happiness!

Life will never be the same again (you worry while you are expecting your baby and now have a lifetime of worrying about them ahead!) - although I'm sure you'll feel as we do with our children that being Sapphire's Mummy and Daddy is the best thing you've ever done!

Love to you all xx

P.S !I admire your decision to!resist sharing her photo...some things are just meant to be for family and friends

Congratulations to you all on such beautiful news as I sit up through the night in USA election night anxiety that Sapphire knows nothing about.

May she be free from everything but blessings and know how many of us thank her papa for the positive changes he has made in our lives too.

Mrs mse - well done!
