    JOCKO!!!!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Totally know where you are coming from, exact same deal as you:( 3yrs... as you already know. Not easy getting pregnant and why risk it, what is 9 months of your life! Like you said, can still do plenty of other things! Know the morning/all day sickness, couldn't cope with the smell of cooking red meat first time around, or coffee, stopped feeding the calves down the dairy as the smell was not good! 2nd time round was not so bad - but was completely different, figured it must of been a girl! There will be lots of babies at Brunswick Vet Clinic!!! hehehe Catch you around sometime!:):)Reckon there is a little girl due there very shortly!

    Goes to show everyone is different! My doc said the only reason I gave birth so easy is because I kept riding and I had nice hidden six pack there to help push lol No for real though he said it was so easy because I stayed fit my body could stretch and contract as needed (im not fit now though lol) I had my first contractions on the back of my old stallion Jaffy and was out of hospital and back on a horse in a couple of days:D

    nope, not long to go, about 4 weeks, but im pretty sure hes gonna be early, hes head down and engaged already and has stopped moving so much (thank god!!):D have to admit, im absolutley terrified of the labour, i cant have an epidural coz ive got scoliosis, ( twist in my spine)#( but im sure im stronger than i think, ill be fine.

    Redmans goin ok, fat as a whale! hes bein a bit of an idiot, think hes bored and needs to be out doin things, cant wait to start riding again!:)
