Getting out and about

Isn't it wonderful what the sun can do. Well it changes my mood, makes me want to be active and gives me a general boost. Guess what kind of weather we have been having?

I did manage to get out and about today. I took care of some business, the Dr's and visited my close friend who is a new mum then boring food shopping. I seem to be surrounded by babies or pregnant women, or women who want to be pregnant. And so the world grows.

Baby is a boy and is called Cassius. He weighed in at 91b 10 oz so not so small then. Mum is doing fine but there were complications with the birth. Thankfully her little man is doing fine now. He did have breathing problems and was a very deep shade of purple due to this when he was born. His little face and eyes are still really bloodshot and he is very sleepy, but he is well. Thank God.

I know for some it is difficult to conceive, others have problems with babies for a number of reasons when they are born. I know I have been really lucky and I am thankful for the experiences that I have had. My eldest was early, severely jaundiced and the labour was intense, but my second was a breeze. What lies in store this time I really do not know. I pray things will go smoothly for both me and my unborn child.

I don't plan to have any more children (I know that every mother says this at this point), but I feel I have done my bit for Mankind and my family.

For the moment I am trying to enjoy my pregnancy and the idea of being mum again.
