Hi,

Just a brag really laughing2.gif My DS and DIL, will be having baby number three in the next few days. She will be induced on Wednesday afternoon. We are staying down that way for Wednesday and Thursday...so hoping she has bubs in that time.

This is the girl that found out she was already 6 months pregnant without knowing anything about it laughing2.gif

So this little one is a girl, her beautiful name is Gabrielle. I love her name, and we can't wait to meet #7 original.gif

laughing2.gif No

Its funny when Gabrielle was born, her mum put her arm up in the air and was shouting "I did it!" over and over again. Its funny that bubs was born like that too laughing2.gif

And I hope I am not the crazy MIL from hell. I actually love my son in law and my daughter in law very much. To me they are the perfect matches for my DS and DD.
