Sorry guys but this now has to slip over to Off-Topic where all the other stuff not directly connected with Switzerland goes.

I know it's rough - but if we aren't not fairly consistent in this ruling we'd have the Front Page full of wedding/birth congratulations, birthday greetings and goodness knows what else.


...but... but... but... this is Nil we're talking about...

If she isn't part of our daily lives in Switzerland and EF, what is?

Yeah, but she lives in Basel. That's in France, isn't it?

Re: It's quiet in here.... wait a minute, what do I hear? WAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Ahahahaaa, I am glad the sense of humor didn't get drowned in major fluffehness. Although, childbirth is automatically one giant fluf.

Mama, congrats. Take it easy and try to walk a lot, gets rid of the risks of post op clots. Long live the new baby boy! And hormones or not, if there was one good piece of advice post birth, it was not to not expect too much understanding, support or help with it, but it will be over very quickly, our bodies are beautifully self regulatory. Especially in such beautiful weather to hang outside and lovely 2 kids to be busy with. Cheers!

I didn't know if I should Thank you for the good laugh or Groan you for the strong pain coming from that laugh!

Surprisingly, I feel great. I am very tired but I am relieved to have the baby, to not be pregnant anymore (ever again) and to pass through the unknow of a C-section.

Stress is gone, hormones not but I am much easier to deal with on hormones than on stress.

Thanks to all for the great support and sorry to all for my short temper, barking and yada yada!
Thats OK ,you from Montreal/Quebec after all

Re: It's quiet in here.... wait a minute, what do I hear? WAAAAAA!!!!!!!

Thanks everybody for all the kinds words! I didn't have much time since we are back home, nor even before actually. I want to thank also all those who wrote me kind words on PMs. I am going to answer, just need some times...

Baby is growing well. He was born at 2.75 kilos and 47 cm. The exact same numbers his big sister was. He eats every 2-3 hours so it makes our nights shorts and the morning shift begin at 6h30-7h with his sister.

I am recovering well. I'll put my own experience in the C-section thread soon, when I can keep my eyes open enough long to write it down.

Nil

If you were a real friend and not just a cyber one then you would have seen them already


Nil, add my congrats to the list of many you have received. He's a gorgeous little boy and I'm looking forward to popping in to see you soon.

Yay!! One more kiddie to take to the KFC quests and annoy Porsch childless EFers with
