    I hope you both can do your best to have an indulgent weekend taking care of each other. Monday's going to take a lot out of both of you, but you already know that.

    A final message for all three of you:

    Take care, good luck and be strong.

    Thanks Guys. Another day passed and she continues to gain strengh and defy the odds. Mummy even manged a cuddle which has given her a huge morale boost :thumb: I would like to share it with you guys as you are part of the journey now!

    Besides, she is going to be a Bit-Techer when she is older......

    A couple of things. Scans didn't show any sign of ovaries or testes, but Sophie has a uterus! So with that and what looks like female genitalia I feel we have made the right choice with pushing forward with a female sex.

    They are going to have a proper look at the cleft pallet tomorow and her club feet and draw up some treatment plans. She also filled a stinky nappy today and can pee for england so thats good too :thumb:

    Just one small step at a time xxx

    I'm late to the congrats party, but it sure looks like all three of you are doing each other real proud. So well done to all of you, Sophie's a right little cutie.
