It's a Girl !

'Laura Beth'
Born 20th March 2012
at 1.17 pm  weighing 7lb 7 oz
Birth induction due to Precipitous labour ie: that's like really quick labours . . .
I have been touch on the quick side with my last few deliveries so as a precaution we decided on an inducement a little before babies due date to make sure that I was in a comfortable and safe environment for babies arrival, I am not a risk taker and this decision took most of the anxiety away from my birthing experience which meant the last few days at home I was very relaxed and was able to enjoy the last stages of my pregnancy, good for Mum and Bub I think...  It certainly didn't mean that it made the actual Birth any easier, a lot of pain, frustration, heavy breathing, a few uncontrolled screams, unsuccessful visualisation techniques, a good (but accidental) kick to the midwife, all in all it was a quick, no nonsense breathtaking delivery. Little Laura arrived Safely, Healthy and just as Beautiful as I imagined she would be . . .

4 days to go!

Within the waves of pain, discomfort and frustration I am cherishing the last few days left with just Bubba and Me. I have always enjoyed being pregnant, it's such an amazing experience, and becoming a mother is certainly one of the most challenging experiences life can bring. This will be my last pregnancy,  I'll miss my Belly! I am trying to savour every last moment, forming that special bond I'm continuously rubbing my little tummy, and I do say little because I don't think I'm really that huge do you?  Mind you I still feel like a ten tonne Truck! So in the countdown, we have a few names on our short list and I am becoming very anxious about the whole 'Birthing', but oh, how excited I am also becoming  to soon meet this new little person...

 What do you think
 Girl?
or Boy?
and Yes, I have only got one bootie made !

Sew Busy

So while I've had my head buried in the books this week, 
(really I have) 
Someone has been busy crafting . . .


 
 
Cheeky little chook isn't she!
