The big double digits - 10.
It was lovely having the all the kiddies home on school holidays for Teagan's birthday and for dinner (her choice) we all went up to Maccas.
I still can't beleive that my little girl is 10 years old - time is going way to fast.

On external feeling of my tummy he didn't seem happy, after the internal he told me I wasn't getting induced today. Shocked I asked Why? Unusualy the bub had moved back up and was no longer engaged but I also wasn't allowed to go home. There were a lot of concerns my Ob also had..he didn't want my waters to break and not to be in the Hospital as he was concerned that the cord would come out first and sadly that does not have a good outcome for the bub. So C-section was also bought up as the safest option. After going through everything with Rani, the C-section was an easy decision to make, especially if it meant that our bub would have a safe arrival.As we weren't a planned C-section we were scheduled in for around 3pm. I was so scared, I really didn't know what to expect...I couldn't even imagine the spinal block as I had never even had an epidural. The day dragged on and on and 3pm came and went, the Hospital was flat out. Finally at 5pm we were in the operating theatre.
All that fear...lol...the fear odf the unknown, being petrified of a needle in my back and the time had come...and it was nothing...lol...the sensation of the block was really wierd and I was amazed at how quickly it worked. My Ob came in and I really didn't think they had started, but what was only a minute or 2 he told John to grab the camera and get a shot of the bub as it was coming out of my tummy...I couldn't believe that our bub was already here, then I heard the best sound the cry...and then we got told we had a boy..our little Kai had arrived.
I couldn't see a thing and John had gone to be with Kai...it was a very strange feeling after having 3 natural births and bubs on me straight away I really wanted this bub with me. Eventually John came over and put Kai on my chest...instant love and amazement...another bub with dark hair, I couldn't get over how much he looked liked Rani.
It was over to soon, the Nurses came to take him to the Nursery to get weighed etc and John went with him. I was eventually taken to recovery, all the while hanging to see my boy again. Finally I was taken back to the room and able to cuddle my boy.
I found out all the details and was shocked to find that both Rani and Kai were the exact same weight at birth to the gram!
It was also really special to have Kai born on Good Friday, with the Good Friday Appeal on TV in the background, raising money for a Hospital that has such a special place in our hearts. i know that his big sister will watch out for him...it just would have been even more special if she was here to come to the Hospital with her brother and sister.

It is not to late to sponsor him, as the run is not until 30th March...and every cent goes to the Royal Childrens Hospital and as you know it has a special place in our hearts and hopefully with the money raised another family won't have to go through what we have.
Steven is training hard...poor boys birthday is this Sunday but he is being good and sticking to his training as he really wants to better his time this year.

John has been away alot on business, so it has been me and the kiddies and well Mum and Dad...lol. Thankfully this month I have asked John not to travel as much (well at all) as well we were hoping that we would be moving around this time and with Bub due in 3 weeks I didn't want to risk him being over in Perth and not making it back...just in case.
So what else...Sally and Kevin got married on 23rd Feb...it turned out to be a beautiful day, as it had rained for a couple of days before. Sal looked absolutely stunning as did everyone. It was a bit sad as I was meant to be one of the bridesmaids, but pulled out when I found out I was pregnant and due a month after the wedding. Still I had a fantastic time, the Wedding and Reception was held at a beautiful place and the night we fun. Being the designated driver it was a fun drive home with varying degrees of drunks in the car...lol...John being the worst...lol
The Bride and Groom
Here is a pick of Sal and I.
The House...what can I say - I am so over it and the muck ups and delays. I really don't even like going out to see it at the moment, as nothing seems to be happening. We get told a time line and then someone doesn't turn up or finish what they are meant to and this puts everyone back. So we still have no set move in date. We were really hoping to be moved into beofore bub arrived, but it looks like I will be bringing it back here and moving sometime after that...grrr
BUB - well I have 3 weeks to go..I can't believe it, well less if I can help it...lol. I am having an Ultrasound tomorrow to check size, position etc, as I really don't want to have to go through a Teagan birth again and then next Wednesday I see my Ob and he decides if I can be induced a little early. I am very excited about meeting this little one, but also scared stiff. I know that the chances of what happened to Rani happening again are very slim, but I am still scared about everything else that can go wrong. I really hope that I don't become to over-protective with this one, that I am just able to enjoy having another little bub. I am sure once I see this baby I will just melt, but it is going to be very hard and very emotional not having Rani with us to enjoy her new little brother or sister.
I actually scrapped, I am in shock that it is the first pages that I have done all year...naughty, naughty.
I did 3 pages that were all for Bon's CC and then to my shock when I was on the forum today I saw that my LO 'Hanging Out' won for Fran's Sketch Challenge. What a thrill and boost to keep me scrapping.
