I'm Back

As you know I've taken a break from blogging recently as I've had some pregnancy issues, plus a lot's been going on.

I won't go into all the details but basically I've been having threatened prem labour, have had spotting and was admitted to hospital. I've got a scan next week to see how things are going.

I've been having many appts and ultrasounds to check the baby and the cervix.

The retaining wall is just about done, the only thing left to do is the stairs :) It's not number one on our to do list, but it will be done soon.

We didn't get around to finishing everything on our list for June, but it didn't matter anyway as the baby shower was cancelled as I was in hospital, and we ended up having it this Saturday just passed at my mums house. I had such a fantastic day and I feel so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends :)

My husband bought a second car because of the high chances of bubs coming early, he didn't want to leave me without a car. Well after looking and looking and looking, we found one. $650 with 2 months rego. He looked over it, took it for a drive... paid for it home.... and it's a lemon :( It over heats after about 15 minutes of driving. Hopefully it's something minor but the mechanic said it might be the head gasket (haven't had a chance to take it to him yet as he's booked out, but hubby called him). I told DH to cancel rego and send it off to Sims Metal (wreckers) lol. So we'll see what happens there. I'm not impressed as we had to use our emergency fund to pay for that overly priced lemon. I'm trying not to dwell on it and have started re building our EF.

Last week and this week I've been playing nurse to my family as they all except Mr 1 caught this weird  flu (my extended family and so many other people have had it too). I've never seen my husband so sick. His lasted about 2-3 days. Miss 4 lasted 24 hrs and now has a bit of a cold. I so far thankfully do not have it and Mr 3 has it pretty bad. He had a fever and was throwing up constantly yesterday and was so lethargic. I was really worried about him, as last time he got sick he got Febrile Convulsions.

I've almost got all bubs things washed and ironed, and we've set up the bassinet and change table etc in our room.

I think that's all for now, I'm a bit distracted as my good friend has given birth to her first baby a couple of hrs ago :) I'm so happy for her and her Fiance :)

  1. Gosh Tubbah. All been happening at your place. Glad to hear bub has stayed put and all is still going well. Don't worry. We've bought our fair share of lemons. Funnily enough, by the time my husband has gotten around to selling them (or getting rid of them on ebay), we've made a profit. Depending on what it is, it might be worth something to someone in say 6 months time?

    All the best and stay in touch.
