Mikayla Rose

Born at 10:55 pm on the 10/12/2010,
weighing 7lb 5oz

Sorry I haven't posted sooner, but as you can imagine things have been very hectic around here with the healthy arrival of our beautiful daughter. I just wanted to pop on and let everyone know that we are doing well. I will be writing my birth story soon to share with you, but just for now I have some pics of our precious angel.

She is perfect

My Waters Broke!!!

Yep, they broke at about 12:15am this morning. Still no contractions though :( If they don't start soon I will have to be induced which I really don't want. I want to go as natural as possible.

I have been walking all day, bouncing on my ball and having warm baths to try and bring on the contractions, but there has been no change. It is driving me crazy! I just want to get things underway. I am so close to meeting my little girl, but now it seems like we have taken a step back and everything is going so slow. I have been getting light little pains and tightening but nothing major yet.

I had to go to the Hospital last night for them to check me and bubs out and make sure it was definitely my waters that broke (which it was). Bubs is doing well and still moving lots which is really good. Now I am back at home just playing the waiting game and praying that the contractions start really soon.

Baby Shower Fun!

This Saturday just gone we finally had our baby shower. It was a great day and we had such a good time catching up with family and friends. I think we had about 30 guests in total at the end of the day who all seemed to fit into Mum's house nicely. I was a bit worried there wouldn't be enough room. The weather was wonderful although a little hot.

We had a delicious barbecue lunch cooked by my wonderful Husband

This is me and my friend Cassie comparing belly sizes. Cassie is actually due right about now.

A quick pic of the parents to be :)

People inside. We used the magenta pink and lime green colour scheme for decorations around the house to match the colours I am using in bubby's bedroom.

Alex and I opening presents. We felt very spoilt!

Alex was keen to try out this little ride on fire engine. I think he is going to have a lot of fun pushing his daughter around on this

This is a pic of all the wonderful presents we received on the day. Were we spoiled of what!

A big thank you to everyone who came to the baby shower and made it such a great day! We had such a great time and can't wait for you all to meet our little princess Mikayla xxoo

And also a big shout out to my Mum for allowing us to use her home for the day, and staying up till midnight the night before baking and organising. We couldn't have had such a great day without you xxoo
