So after nearly 6 years from the initial decision to try for a baby and after much infertility treatment, pain, emotion, mileage, financial outlay and nerves – today at 8:34am our daughter finally arrived and about 2 weeks earlier than expected! Labor and pregnancy went well. She is 6 pounds five ounces and is doing fine. Photos below: Continue reading New Baby Girl!
I never would have guessed how hard it would be to pick a name for our forthcoming child. Its one of the biggest decisions I’ve ever had to make so can we have some help please!? We have a shortlist but we don’t know the sex yet (its in a sealed envelope behind me here in the office!) hence 2 polls below: Continue reading Help Us Choose a Baby Name!?
Here’s my partner at exactly 34 weeks pregnant on Christmas day. Not a bad shot for an iPhone camera and a darkened room eh!? Continue reading Eimear on Christmas Day!
Today we are at 31 weeks and 4 days according to my iphone app! and yes its getting a bit like watching paint dry. The baby is wreaking havock in Emer and she has just about had enough! The last 6/7 weeks of this nervy pregnancy can’t go quick enough for the both of us and we just want to get stuck into parenthood. Continue reading Pregnancy Countdown
Been waiting ages to go get this done and it turned out to be worth the money and trip to Dublin from Leitrim! First proper look at the baby complete with smiles, waves & yawns in 2D, 3D and 4D! Continue reading 3D 4D Ultrasound Scan
We’re getting there slowly but surely, Emer’s pain is manageable and we’re gettin to see more and more of what its all about.

Continue reading 27 Weeks Baby Looking Good!
At the end of a very long and painful week which scared the shit out of both of us, at least we have this image to remind us of what its all about. Emer’s home from hospital and Baby’s doin fine! Continue reading Latest Scan Photo
Nothin is ever feckin easy. I’m in the hospital with my partner at the min digesting the news that if the cyst on her ovary gets any worse they will have to remove it and possibly the ovary too. On top of that there’s a 50/50 chance that she’ll go into labour at 24 weeks. Scared.
Had our first proper scan today in Sligo General and got given out to for getting scaned too early, apparently its usually in the late 20’s or early 30’s weeks when you get your first scan but we were only following orders! Continue reading Ultrasound Scan
I’ve been quiet on the pregnancy news front cause there ain’t been too much happening really! All still on course though. One thing that has happened is we’ve heard the heartbeat and heres a short clip recorded today courtesy of the local GP and my partner’s mobile phone!
