I just want to say thanks for the kind supportive comments, they were lovely to receive. Rohan and I have broken up, after five happy years together. We had different incompatible dreams, and we'd been ignoring that issue as we were so happy together. We had to finally stop ignoring it and face facts.

A keyring with the initial of the new baby - can be hung in the nursery, or on the changing bag, etc:
And his big sister's initial:
I think they all went down well!
