    I am so happy for you guys!! I think you guys waited to find out the sex, so I was even happier to see you got a boy this time! and another big baby, huh? I bet he is gorgeous!! I am just thrilled for you! Hope you have a great recovery, and can't wait to see some posts about Ralph!!



  3. Congrats Deb!

  4. Thanks guys!!!

    Yes, Amber, we did wait to find out the sex - to us there is no better surprise - and were we ever!!! I was convinced it was a girl.

    He is really adorable. Rachel loves him so all is well.

    Best to you both,

  5. Congratulations!!!! I have kept myself oblivious to all the pregnant mammas due to ok, will admit, jealousy! I just recently realized you had given birth! But I have to say I am so happy for you and your little boy! I know how long and hard you guys waited to complete your family and I am thrilled for you!

    Congratulations again!

  6. Congratulations, Deb! Welcome, Ralph Michael!


  7. Caroline and Kris!!! Thank you!

    Caroline - I know exactly what you mean - one reason why I have not posted on the Parenting After IVF board. It was a very painful time for me when I was trying and then miscarried a precious girl. You are a very gracious and lovely person.


  8. Congratulations upon the birth of your baby Ralph!! You must be in seventh heaven! I didn't know that you were expecting, but I also know that you are very sensitive about it yourself and like to protect like minded people from longing and pain.

    I see your posts here and there.

    Wanted to say Mazel Tov!!!!!!!!!


  10. yildirimbulut -- CONGRATULATIONS!!! I was thinking about you after seeing your post again recently on the names thread. Perfect!! Hope you and your whole family are enjoying him! (I never knew about this glad I caught this!)

  11. You guys are the best. Thank you so much for the warm wishes. It means a lot. Really.


  12. Deb,


    You are so deserving of this wonderful happy occasion!

    Ralph was really 10 lbs 3 oz? YOWZA, thank goodness for the C-section, eh?!


  13. Erica - thanks!!! I am SO excited for you. Can't wait to hear more good news.

    Yeah, 10lbs 3oz. A lightweight compared to Rachel (11lbs.) I actually feel pretty good - and he seems happy so that's good. He eats an awful lot - DH and I joke that we should just get him a beer hat that funnels in formula.

    Best to you,

  14. Deb - What wonderful news! Thanks for posting.
