My name is Amy and I am 35 weeks along with my second. We are having a boy, already have a nearly 4 yo daughter, so VERY excited about having a "pigeon pair".
We live in the hills of Perth, and I will be delivering at Swan Distericts which is public. My daughter was born in Broome hosp. and I have no problems with public hosp. Swans have just upgraded their maternity section, and it's really nice. I only stayed in hosp 24hr after my daughter was born, luckily a very straight forward and easy delivery, and was released into the care of my sister and aunty, who are both midwives!!! VERY HANDY!!! Hopefully, the same thing will happen this time, although, I would like to take full advantage of the hospital stay, to get as much rest before I head home!!!
I have just pretty much finished packing my bags, I think I've over done it with everything though!! Ah well, best to be prepared. Our bubs room is all done, everything washed and ready, so now I'm just trying to rest and spend as much one on one time with my daughter as possible.
She is beside herself with excitement about her brother, and I think will be a HUGE helper. She's one of these girls who is way into EVERYTHING baby, dolls, prams, you name it!!
I'm hoping there won't be too many dramas with jelousy etc, has anyone else got other littlies and worried about this sort of thing???
Great to read all our Perth mummies posts.
