    So today is my last day at work before 2 weeks holiday.
    Sadly, I'm not going anywhere, because my "holiday friend" is pregnant and she's due on Wed :lol:
    So I took 2 weeks off to be with her and help if I can.
    And ...
    Was woken by a text at 4:20 am saying "don't panic, but IT'S HAPPENING!".
    She's in hospital, I'll have to go to work at least for few hours and we'll see ...
    My Dad is coming soon, I'm taking Phoebe to my parents house, in case it'll be a long day ;)

    I am SO EXCITED :D

    I am going to be an auntie :cornut:

    "Quick labour" vibes welcome!

    Hope all goes well with the birth, sending lots of quick labour vibes :)

    Can you tell I can't stay away from this place for too long? :biggrin5:

    I'm still at work, but should be free around 11, looks like I'll not be missing much action, as it's not exactly happening just yet :D

    Thanks all!

    P.S. Mirx, them booties better hurry up :lol:
    I had a good hunch to order them early! :eek:

    Thanks everyone!

    Well, it wasn't easy, it wasn't quick but little Noah arrived at 00:39 yesterday <24/08>!
    He was 3.2kg and 46cm- tiny little thing, but happy and healthy :D
    Mum is doing well too, they should be coming home today!

    OMG! He's just so amazing :001_wub:
    My Mum gave me some fruit yesterday and asked me if we've had them, when I got back <I'm staying at my parents as it's close to my friend's house, and I can spend more time with Phoebe too> and I'm like ... "Erm, no, we've had no time! We just sit there staring at him!"
    He's gorgoeus, he sleeps loads, doesn't even wake up for food much!
    Packed in the carsit at around 4:30pm yesterday, we got him home just after 5 he just slept through the journey and until 9pm!
    Then fed, changed and went back to sleep! :eek:
    I bet my friend had fun at night :lol:

    Can't wait to see him! I'm in love :001_tt1:
    *NO, still don't want my own! Even more now that I've witnessed a birth :eek:hmy:
