Bit of excitement

So, on the weekend, Sharon and I did a trip to Cohuna. Haven't seen Aunty Gwen for ages, and wanted to take the chance to do so before Lex arrived.

It was a good visit, I have a particular attachment to my rellies in Cohuna. Then, Sunday night, Shaz started feeling... not right. Sore back and crampy pains, similar to what she felt when we lost Tracy (the anniversary of which was a little over a week ago now), so at 1am we headed into Cohuna District Hospital.

The nurses hooked her up to a few machines and confirmed that it was indeed premature labour - 10 weeks early! They rang the doctor and he told them to give Shaz some tablets that would hopefully stop the contractions, which they did. If they hadn't, she would have been rushed down to Melbourne, since that was the nearest place that could handle a ten week prem birth. After a fairly sleepless night, we eventually got out of there around 10am.

After popping back to Aunty Gwen's to eat and say our goodbyes, we drove the 8 hours back to Canberra, yawning all the way.

Sharon's fine, guts are still slightly achy, but otherwise no issues. She saw the midwife yesterday and Wendy told her that there was a run of similar prems on the weekend.

At this point, we doubt Lex will wait for his official opening on August 16th, but at least he's well into the viable point now, and every extra week we get increases the chances for things to go well.

Stay tuned...
