yes, baby on board!

Yesterday I shared our exciting news that baby number 7 is on the way! I’ve been keeping it quiet for a little and will be 16 weeks tomorrow. The pregnancy is going really well but I had 2 scares early on which were a bit stressful and have made me very cautious. But since then everything has been going really well……..


I’m huge (because I guess my body knows what to do and is working ahead of time), I’m tired (falling asleep on the couch by 9pm most nights and you cannot wake me up at all, so I often wake up and take myself to bed and I know that hubby has tried all he can to wake me up and encourage me upstairs) and I’m always thirsty (lots of big glasses of water and fruit cup cordial – don’t ask me why fruit cup but it’s got to be fruit cup).

Thank you so much for all of your kind words and congratulations. And yes….we need a new van! We made our 7 seater an 8 seater but now we’ll need a 9 seater to fit us all in.


  1. Congratulations to you and your lovely family. Hope you get much needed rest over the holidays.

    AMAZING congratulations. Only the other day I was reading one of your posts and wondered if you would ever have another 😁 exciting timing 2017 x

  3. Really happy news Corrie! Staying well and getting your rest while you can is so important as you grow your newest little person. Wishing all of you a happy and wonderful Christmas! Denyse xx

  4. Very exciting news for you and your beautiful family! Wishing you all the very best for your pregnancy💞 So special having a baby on board at Christmas too🌟

  5. Wow Congrats Corrie!
    We just bought a 7-seat LDV G10. We test drove the 9-seater, and it’s so nice. Cream leather seats, its like a little aircraft inside. We are loving our brand new car, they are quite new to Australia so you may not have heard of them. Price is amazing too $30K

  6. Congratulations!!! That is very exciting.
    We had our 7th child in March, and we ended up buying an ex-ambulance and getting it fitted out. So now we have 2 sliding doors (something that most of the vans that size don’t have) and the exact layout we want; it’s fantastic.

  10. I was so thrilled to read your news when you announced it the other day. After all the horrible things in 2016 it is lovely that I now know of 3 new babies on the way for 2017

  11. How wonderful Corrie, congratulations………I’ve been reading your blog for a while but this is the first time I’ve commented. My daughter has five little girls and adores having a large family, I think she would have more but is unable to. Merry Christmas to you and your lovely family, and best wishes for the coming months.
