The Countdown Is On, A little scare and a NAME!!

Wow, i am getting so close to meeting my little man. Only 9 more sleeps. I am booked for c-section on the 7th May. We have also decided on a name. His name will be


The 7th May also marks 1 year from when SKYLA had 3 cardiac arrests in 24hrs. They told me that day she wouldnt survive the night. I really tried to not have him this day but i didnt have any other choice but too. Or unless i wanted to have him on the 14th May. That would have made me nearly 41wks and there was no way i was going to go over. I am anxious enough as it is. So now that i am booked for the 7th, as hard as it is going to be i will try and make a happy day out of a sad. He may even decide to come on his own in the meantime. I guess i am going to be very emotional no matter when i have him anyways, Not having my little girl here with us. I miss her so so much. It is still so hard. I love you SKYLA and miss ya bubba but i know you are looking out for your little brother. Thanks darlin.

I had a little scare yesterday. I woke up at 430am and couldnt go back to sleep. At about 830am i was starting to worry as i didnt think i had felt him move. I got myself worked up so i rang the hospital. They told me to come in so they could put the monitor on him. After about 30min of monitoring him they werent really happy with it as they didnt see any spike in his heartrate and i still wasnt really feeling any movements. His heartbeat was fine though. They gave me some apple juice and got me to lay on my side. After that he decided to put on a performance and they were happy with what they saw. Cheeky little bugger he is already. Also too i have been really stressing out lately as it is getting close. I guess its only normal after loosing my beautiful girl. I wonder at times if its all in my head. I just want little Jai out now and safe in my arms. I cant wait to meet him. Anyways after he put on a little show they sent me home which was great. They gave me a kick chart so i can keep track of his movements.

On thursday 30th i have my next checkup and then Friday i have my pre-admission appointment. I will let you all know how it goes.

A Parcel In The Post

I just wanted to say thankyou to Gil, Kaden Brown's mum. Kaden is a CDH survivor from Scotland. Click here to view his blog. Kaden was born in July 07. We have followed each others journey with CDH and kept in touch through our blogs and emails. Well the other day i recieved a parcel in the mail. It was a gorgous outfit and bib for my little man to be. Thankyou so much GIL. I love it. I will try post some pics soon.

PS, Gil should have had her new baby yesterday. Gil was booked in for a C-Section. I cant wait to see some pictures of your new little man. Hope all is well with mum and bub.

Baby Shower

On April 5th, my mum and sister Tash put on a baby shower for me. I was a bit nervous bout having one cause i was worried it would bring up memories of Skyla. Im so glad i had it though cause i ended up having a really great day. Thanks so much mum and Tash. I only cried once before everyone got there cause silly me brought up my beautiful princess. I hid it from them though. Well i dont think they new i cried. Oh well i guess they will know now. There was about 14 of us there. We played a few games and ate some great food. I got so many lovely presents. This time all blue. Thankyou so much to everyone for my presents and i hope you all had a great day. I know i shore did. Now all i need is my new little man. I cant wait. Just about 4weeks to go. I am still waiting on Tash to email me the photos so i can add them to this post. Check back later. Lots of photos coming. Thanks again mum and Tash for giving me a fantastic day. xxx

Blake's 9th Birthday

On March 28th it was Blake's 9th Birthday. We went out for dinner at our local RSL and after that was a school Bingo night fundraiser at the RSL. It was a good night. Blake won the lucky door prize, 2 games of bingo. I won 2 and my mum won 3. You could say that we cleaned up, lol. Towards the end we were too embarressed to say bingo cause we kept winning all the time. On the 29th which was a sunday, Blake had his birthday party at Bowling. He had invited 9 of his best mates. He had a great time. They played 2 games, then had hotdogs, nuggets, chips, drinks then ice cream. Although he didnt win, he had a great day and got lots of lovely presents. By the time it was over i just wanted to go home and sleep. I was exhausted. Im so glad i didnt have to clean up. But i guess that happens when your 34weeks pregnant.



PS. As you can see by the new heading of my blog, i have decided to just continue on with this blog. You can still read my beautiful girl's story by clicking on her picture at the top. I will no longer use my other blog.
