Little babygirl Ella is here ♥

Hi friends and fellow crafters!

Let me start off by telling you there really is NOTHING crafty about todays posting ;) Although I must confess I recieved some packages with stamps I ordered and they are sooooo calling out my name. ;) There are some really beautiful Magnolias lying here on my desk, waiting for me to work them ;) And I will, but I just have to share what has happened in our lifes this past week and tell you that as soon as I can I will get crafty again :)

 As some of you may know we have a five year old daughter named Signe and has always been the apple of our eyes! She is such an amazing little girl and I´m so proud of being her mummy. Being a mum is the most important job I always say and to be her mother is pure joy          When Signe was about two and a half years old, me and hubby started trying to concieve another little baby. However after trying for quite some time we noticed my health was deteriorating. Each month I had worse and worse periods with loads of pain and I started seeing my doctor. They diagnosed me with a common womans decease that is named endometriosis. I had never heard of it but to make a long story short you dont bleed all out each month but a certain amount of blood stays in your womb. After a while this blood starts clogging up and become cysts. On a scan they noticed I had one on my ovarie, it was about 10 cm big. I was listed for surgery and found out when I woke up they had to remove it and that the ovarie I had left was looking very infected too. A new time for surgery was booked and they had to remove that one as well. That meant I had no ovaries left = which meant no more babies, at least not the "natural way". Luckily enough medical science is amazing and we were told we could try IVF. Some of you might know all about that and the psycic preassure that means - at least it did for us. By this time I had found a great hobby which is papercrafting. I´m so thankful for that because I was so sad and being able to create cards was my rescue at many times! After many sorrows we found out we were ever so lucky!! We managed to concieve a baby again :) can imagine how we both feel welcoming our latest additon into our loving family. Many that goes through life never gets to enjoy this no matter how much they want to so I´m feeling very humble and thankful! Sometimes we have a way of taking our loved ones for granted even though we don´t wish too, it just happends. I always try not too! Well, tears of joy are streaming down my face as I´m about to introduce you to our little miracle! She was born on july 17th at 18:28 and is now soon three days old. She weighed 3870 g and is 52 cm long. Everything went really well and even though I (naturally, everybody in labour does ;)) suffered great pain it was nothing compared to the feeling of harmony and unconditional love we now feel as a family of four. I´d do it again - anytime! If there was an Ella to meet at the end of it ;)  

I also want to share some photos:

Big hugs xXx

  3. A huge congratulations on the birth of your gorgeous daughter.
    I didn't know what ivf entailed until a close friend went through it, she had her babies on 6th July. Little ones bring so much joy, the pain just seems to pale into insignificance, I've only it 20 months between my two, if I had the money I'd do it all again in a blink.
    Card making is a great escape,it's helped me to get though this year.
    Hugs, Becky x

  27. Grattis, grattis GRATTIS, gumman!! Jag är verkligen sååå glad för din, för er, skull! Det måste vara en ännu större mirakelkänsla att få hålla i lilla Ella efter allt ni gått igenom... Det är helt otroligt... Nu är hon här, det ljuvliga lilla knytet... Njut, njut, njut!! Och visst är det konstigt att man helt plötsligt kan älska två små varelser lika mycket och inte behöva dela på den kärlek man kände för den fösta??


  28. Ett stort grattis till er fina lilla tös!! Va kul för Signe att få en lillasyster!
    Jag får gåshud av att läsa ditt inlägg, vilken historia! Jag är så glad för er skull!! Ta hand om er och än en gång, GRATTIS!! Tack för att du visar lite foton på dina guldklimpar. Kram, Tess.

  29. Congratulations to your sweet new Baby !

  32. Hi Louise, for some reason Google didn't notify me of this post, and I have been waiting to see you announce little Ella to us. I finally decided to venture your blog and see if I missed something, and I did. Ha! She is so precious. Sending congrats. Isn't it so nice that your crafter friends have made so many beautiful things for her.


Please leave a comment, that would make me thrilled :)
