I just wanted to say how wonderful it is to be receving so many emails from other parents / parents to be who have been finding my sites useful.  I find it really encouraging to know that the sites are helpful to others as well as to myself.  Its always a risk being so open about such personal things but I find it very cathartic and I also wanted to put my experiences out there as I know I find it so helpful reading other peoples' blogs as it makes me feel less alone in my feelings.

I have had so many emails and comments about this site and Sadie's site over the past few days, weeks and months - thanks to everyone who has been in touch and I hope I can find a way to make the sites more accessible to anyone looking for this type of information.
