Don't know if most of you will even remember me, I've been away from the forum such a long time, mainly to ongoing problems with our internet connection - but it's fixed now, woohoo, and I am back online! Sorry to all the ladies whose labour threads and birth announcements I have missed, and congratulations to you all!! Am full term myself now and quite excited about the big day approaching - although I don't want it to be within the next few days, as I haven't finished preparing the present for my son. I'm hoping to finish it by Thursday at the latest, so from then on Samira is allowed out! Have had the odd days - and nights - when I have thought "oh God, this is it", but so far things have always fizzled out again and she is still safely and soundly inside. I hope she behaves herself for a few days longer! Anyway - it's good to be back! Looking forward to reading mroe from all of you over the next few days/weeks!
