It's the final Countdown

Hi everyone, thanks for being so patient waiting for me to finally get back to my blogging. It's nice to get your emails and know you're out there thinking of Rob and I. Everything is going really great and at last the weeks are starting to fly by as you all assured me they would. On the weekend I had my baby shower which was so much fun and of course we were very spoilt with lots of great presents for Poppy. It was a beautiful sunny winter day and Laura made lots of yummy treats for everyone to eat. Kylie was the event organiser extraordinaire and the backyard was filled with balloons and looked gorgeous. The best present of all was that my friend Jen made the trip from Melbourne and we got to spend a lovely weekend together as well as having her at my shower.

Yesterday I had my 31 week OB appointment and we found out that Poppy has turned into a breech position. We still have a few weeks for him/her to turn back around but if not I will end up having an cesarean. I'm not too worried if that is the way things turn out but if I have a chance to deliver naturally I certainly intend to try. The countdown is definitely on with only 2 more OB Appointments booked. The last one is in 4 weeks and at that one we will be booking the final date for the inducement or C Section. Rob and I are so excited - it's amazing to finally be here about to have our baby.

While we were at the appointment we think the midwife may have accidentally slipped up and told us that Poppy is a boy. She backpedalled pretty quick and tried to convince us she didn't know the sex of the baby - but we know it's right there on the file. We will definitely be very surprised if we end up with a girl after all the indicators we've been getting at different appointments. Can't wait to meet this little person either way.

I am feeling in pretty good health for the most part and besides some lingering nausea and the standard back pain it's all pretty cruisy. I'm still working and thoroughly enjoying the company of all my kids - I'm going to really miss them when it's time to stop - but I'm sure I'll have my hands full!!


  1. I am never one to wish for time to fly by especially now that I am older but boy I am wanting the next few weeks to go quickly 'cos I am so anxious to meet my next grandchild and equally anxious that you my beautiful daughter have a beautiful experience, deliver safely,be really well post delivery and be able to share the joy of the miracle of the arrival of your baby with our much loved Robbie. xoxoxo

  2. Hi Kirsty, I think the boys are missing you this week too. Don't think their mum is as much fun or has as much energy for them as you do right now. I am very excited to meet your new arrival - and I still think its a girl!! Take care and see you Monday in the new house!!!


Hi thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. It is nice to know someone is listening.
