Mother and baby on the street

A mother and her baby stroll along St. Patrick’s Street Cork. This was taken last September in beautiful Autumn weather.

This morning started with a bang when Jacinta woke me at 5am because an ear infection was bothering her so much. We went to South Doc who were absolutely useless and sent us to the Cork University Maternity Hospital (CUMH) where we spent over two hours waiting to be seen by a doctor – the doctor who showed up explained that it was the worst time of the day to show up as they’re doing their morning rounds. We finally got a prescription from him. More fun at the CUMH!

This evening we’ll go to the maternity hospital again where Jacinta will begin the induction process. We’re both hoping it won’t be long and drawn out but it’s very likely that we’ll be parents at some stage tomorrow.

Thanks to all who have been in touch, I’m going to be busy texting after the birth!

To Jess and Donncha, good luck and hope tomorrow is the day! Ye must be so excited. Hope the ear is now okay too.

As luck would have it, Jacinta was eating a roll for lunch and a bit of a filling fell out so now she has to contend with a possible tooth ache if that becomes infected. We’re going to book her in to see the dentist asap next week!

Coastal Aussie – baby’s heartbeat was beating loud and clear this morning, but he or she is very comfortable in there and need a bit of persuasion to come out tonight!

Oh and just thought I’d mention… I was looking for the flickr explore scout tool but couldn’t remember which site it’s on, so I googled:
