    Smile It's a Girl!

    So, this happened! babylois.jpg


    Baby Lois was born on the 16th July, 10.35pm weighing a tiny 5lb 10 0z and 21 inches long. I'm still incredibly overwhelmed and can't get my head around the fact she's mine. She has his facial expressions and beginnings of his cleft chin/long legs, but other than that I hope that's all she's inherited!

    She's a very calm, chilled out baby, so she's making it easier for me to adjust and take my time- she sleeps really well and everyone falls in love with her as she's so dinky, like a little doll.

    I've cried everyday, still see my counsellor and think I'm always doing everything wrong with her as I know literally nothing about babies, but I'm trying hard and she really is such a lovely little thing, I've come a LONG way, so wanted to take the time to say thank you to each and every one of you who listened to my problems and gave me the strength to keep this baby all those months ago and make a new life for myself after such a horrible, abusive experience.

    Through this journey I've hit rock bottom and had to rebuild myself again as not only a new woman, but a Mother now too. I've met countless other ladies who've been through the same ordeals with these Narcissistic Sociopaths who have inspired me that it does eventually get better afterwards, so I hope to do the same and show people that you can come out the other side.

    I’ve ended up stronger, wiser and with a beautiful Daughter, whereas losers like him will only destroy everything until they have nothing left. He hasn’t even enquired to see if she’s even alive, too busy with his next deluded schoolgirl victim....

    So, that's my news! All your advice earlier in the year (it seems like a lifetime ago now!) is still very much appreciated. Hope you like the photos- the one in her carseat when I first bought her home is blurry I know as I was still shaking, but I love it because I think her fingers say a clear message to her "sperm donor" we are not to be messed with!

    Love and best wishes from me and Lois xxx

    Thanks for the update I've often wondered how you were doing. Congrats on bub, gorgeous name too.. It's not after that 1D member though is it??

    Best of luck with bub, if you need anything you can ask on this forum...

    I love the carseat photo too and I hope your ex stays well and truely out of your way.

    They are all male but I think one of the boofheads is called Louis or Lewis... Close to Lois.... I suppose not that funny now I think about it!

    I was just thinking about you yesterday! What a beautiful little poppet. So adorable. I truly wish you all the best, you have been so amazing and strong. Just going from your recent post, please keep an eye out for PND after the baby blues have passed. You have been through so much and I can imagine it all may seem insurmountable at times. Keep building those support networks, and thanks for remembering us all across the seas :-)

    Thanks everyone I will definitely continue my counselling and take it a day at a time, it's all so indescribable knowing she's mine.

    Also made plans to setup my own business, then I'll be flexible to take her into work with me, so am trying to remain positive about the future and try to be the best Mum I can. I've gone from never holding a baby and avoiding the whole subject for 32 years, to now not putting mine down!

    Hugs
