Its finished. Its taken me about 3 months and I can't believe I've finally finished it. I think this has got to be my best knit EVER. It was exciting and kept me on my toes following a chart. There were a few errors in the pattern, but those were listed on the Debbie Bliss website.
Once this is dried, I'll fold it and box it ready for Gemma's baby shower in April. Better to be ahead of schedule than tying in loose ends at the last minute.

I've just ordered some yarn for the Rowan Odette blanket for the next baby on the way - "Baby B" due in June. I've ordered pink and cream, however, I have to stress that I do NOT know the sex of the baby its simply my gut feeling. I'll be really embarrassed if I'm proven wrong, so I've also ordered some blue just in case!
The following text is a bit schmultzy, so I apologize in advance.
Yesterday Hubby and I went along to the Fertility Clinic for our first scan. As the Dr inserted the probe, there on the monitor Hubby and I saw our baby. Our baby. A tear ran down my face. Our baby, just the size of a dot with a little flickering heartbeat.
After 4 years of tests, operations, drugs, ivf, heartache, pain and worry, seeing that little heartbeat and Hubby's proud face was the moment the worry lines on my face of all those years of trying for something I so desperately yearned for erased away in a flash.
I feel truly blessed. Thank you all for your prayers and words of strength. I've now just got to keep healthy, relaxed and look forward to enjoying this pregnancy. It goes without saying that I've got 8 month's of worry now. Not to mention the acne and the moustache(!!) I've acquired (I'm presuming its the steroids I'm on?)
