Hello! Scary,to think they're going to big school,in a few months time.We have a parents evening next week,where I'll be buying Oscar's new school uniform. Ethan will also be starting pre school in Sept,so I'll have a whole 3 hours to myself,a couple of days a week-absolute bliss.
we are delighted to announce the arrival of our new baby daughter.
Monae Emerald 7lb 10zo born on the 16th July 5:50pm
She was exactly 2 weeks early, an induced labour because of high blood pressure.
The Details: I was addmited to hospital on the 15th, and started induction at 6pm with prostogin gel, started to have some sharpish contractions and thought maybe baby would come that night, so called dh back in, given second gel at 11pm, more contractions, but then dr, told me to sleep, gave me a sleeping tablet and when I lay down contractions stopped. Given third lot in morning, walked around hospital to get labour going, but it didn't establish till 1pm. I was in major pain then, and told them all to either run over me with a truck or give me an epidural. Got edipural at around 1:40pm one word heaven started to really feel baby coming at 5pm and told them to get dr. back, they didn't believe me but dr. arrived and 3 pushes she was out, managed to push even though i couldn't feel a thing grin dr. wasn't even ready, and we were all laughing and smiling about it. Little Monae opened her eyes as i held her, amazing. dh went home to kids, as we were worried about leaving them, with Oma and Opa for so long. I got up to have a shower but had massive haemorrage, all went a bit scary then, I won't gore you all out, but we are all recovering well now.
One other weird thing, everyone thinks i bribed the dr. to have her on the 16th, as dh, ds2,my best friend and myself and now Monae are all born on the 16th of different months, ds1 Cooper was born on the 14th (so close)
Can not believe I now have 3 children 4 and under. Cooper has been lovely with the baby though, very sweet big brother.
Your all lucky having them off to school, C will not start proper school till 2011 I wonder if I'll have any hair left.
