Bonkers!

Hello there - just a quick note to say....

We're having our fourth and final addition to our family!

Due 27 September (my birthday) - and planning a home birth.

.. let's just say that we were VERY surprised, and to put it mildly - it was a real shock for me, but we're thru all of that now - embarking on week 14... more energy, less sick, feeling much much better than I was during those first 12 weeks.

The shock stemmed from my satisfaction from running and feeling great about my body again (after many years of hosting children - in my belly and on the boob!) and from that moment when all of the kids seem to be quite manageable and happy for the most part.  I had ummed and ahhed about having another baby for 2 years, and within those last 2-3 weeks before I found out - I had made up my mind to not have any more children.  So there was a fair bit of mind challenging time to overcome in the last 13 weeks... Anyway - I'm onto the anticipation, and the realisation that I will have to find a drawer somewhere to pop this little cherub into come September!
