Lilypie Expecting a baby Ticker


On Tuesday Craig and i went off to the doctors for our monthly check up on bub and me. Everything going really well. We finally got to hear the heartbeat. Craig said it sounds like a train!! Bub has been moving and kicking lots all week, more at night time then any other time of the day. I go back in 4 weeks time.

Today (Thursday) i returned to Curves. I also returned to have a weigh and measure!
I gained 2.1 kg, lost 1 cm off bust, but gained 3 cm on my tummy, everything else stayed the same. I guess thats not to bad considering the junk I’ve been eating, the wedding and not to forget bub thats growing :)

As for my friend. She has now lost 13.2 kg, 52 cm, and 6.6% body fat.


Well the day i have been waiting for finally arrived. It was my first ultrasound on bub!

Craig and i walked in at 2pm all excited. We had planned to not find out what the sex was, but the suspense was killing me, i had to know.

The lady showed us various body parts ‘heres the arm, leg, head, fingers’ etc. At one point she had it on the face and bub opened its mouth for a big yawn. It was so cute and made me smile. Other then that nothing else really looked like what it was meant to be, but more a blob of something.LOL

She had nearly finished looking over and i asked what i wanted to know. ‘Is it a boy or girl’. All i got was a smile and then the heart breaking news ‘ I cant tell you, the whole time bub has had knees together and not moved them at all so i cant see’.

I felt worse. I went in happy as can be and walked out sad. Got in the car and didn’t really say much. It was only when i had to drop Craig back to work that i cracked, and burst into tears. Craig kept reminding me at least its healthy and no problems, the size of a 21-22 week old baby which is pretty much spot on with the dates i am at. But its not what i wanted to know. If it was a boy or girl i needed and wanted to know. Thats kids for you, expect the unexpected.

The Craig statement ‘maybe there is 2 babies in you Kim’ was finally revealed, there is only in fact 1 and thats a bonus i assume.

All in all not much can be done, bub just was camera shy i guess and does not like mummy or daddy to know what sex they are :D

Off to Doctors tomorrow to see what they have to say. I will also mention that i have and still am sick, and if theres anything he might think it could be. Cant be baby with problems cos nothing was found today. Perhaps just all stretching inside.


Well Last Monday 17th July we headed off to Barrington tops country retreat for the week. We checked in around 3.30pm and settled into our spa cottage. After a little while we managed to get the fire going, was nice and toasty warm then :)

The week was good. Nice meals, great atmosphere and so peaceful. I could have said it was the best holiday I’ve ever had but id be lying then. Why you may ask…..well bub decided it didn’t like being away so in turn made me sick from Tuesday on wards. I was in pain, could hardly move and couldn’t go out anywhere cos it hurt so much. So i spent the week in bed and got up when i had to. Come Friday morning Craig said we were going home, was hard to see me in pain and by then i uneasily agreed but knew it was for the best.

On the way home we dropped in to see Angela and then slowly made our way back through the Sydney traffic.

Once home i felt upset cos we had left early but i felt safer, i knew i had a hospital 10 minutes down the road, doctors and most of all mum and dad close by.

A big thanks to Tim from Ace Internet www.acenet.com.au (where Craig works) for making our wedding a latest news announcement. It is very much appreciated and thanks for using a nice picture of the bridal party. :)

For those wishing to have a look at all the wedding photos you can go to www.charvelphotography.com and you will find the album.


We headed to Wollongong to Everafter flower preservation. Dropped off my bouquet and picked a frame and so forth.

Then we went to Births, deaths and marriages to apply for our certificate. It should arrive as soon as the church registers the marriage.

Off to Warrawong next to the dry cleaners where my dress is going to be put into a wedding dress preservation box.

After an expensive day out and both were exhausted we went home.

Had a quite night, watched some TV and went to bed around midnight. Again talking about what a great weekend we have had.

It will sure take some time to remember i’m no longer Miss Kimberley Dent, but now Mrs Kimberley Marchant :)

I don’t think i could have picked a better man to spend the rest of my life with, or father our first child.

So heres to you Craig, Thank you and I Love You Lots :D


The day began at 5.20am, when neither of us could sleep. So we laid in bed and talked more about the night and the plans for the day.

All my family plus Craigs parents, Anglea, Mat, Kate and Granny went to Sizzlers for breakfast, I was also Rhiannons 10th Birthday. We all pigged out on food until we were full!!.

Time was going fast and we all went our separate ways.

For us we headed to Macarthur Square to return the suits, and headed home.
We dropped into see Terry to collect our marriage certificate and have a chit chat. We then headed to the local hospital to drop in and see Gus, who had attended our wedding. Mind you, he checked out on Saturday to come along, but ended back there at night in pain.

We wish you well Gus :)

After leaving there we headed to mum and dads. Present time. We got heaps of things. Photo frames, towels, cross stitch frame with our names and wedding date, vases, saucepans, money galore, blankets, bowls…That’s just to name a few items!!

It had been a long day and we headed home for some much needed rest.


After we had all relaxed and composed ourselves, it was time to enter the party!

Brendan and Dannika were first to enter, then Sam and Rhiannon, Angela and James, Sarah and Mathew followed lastly by Terry and Melinda. Once they were all in it was our turn and my smiles said it all. As Craig and I entered everyone was cheering and clapping, was the best feeling i could have ever felt.

On the way in i had a good look at the cake, cos until then i had forgotten what it looked like. As i expected it looked perfect. Once we were all seated we done the hello rounds yet again for those we had missed at the church.

Dinner was served and everyone dug in. Food was yummy, not a bad word was said about it.

Speeches followed. They were all so moving and not one speech didn’t bring a tear to our eyes. For me by the time it was my turn i was full of emotion, and could not hold it together. I cried :( but lucky for me Mel took over. We then cut the cake After all the speeches and cake cutting were out of the way, the bridal dance. I felt so good, and the song we had meant to much. Beautiful in my eyes by Joshua Kadison. Everyone slowly started joining in and the dancing took off.

I was on a natural high and i was having a ball. I didn’t care what any one thought, was my night and ill party if i wanna… that i did.

The night flew, before i knew it, it was 10.15 and we had 30 minutes before Craig and I left. The bouquet was thrown, Rhiannon was the lucky girl. Garter was done after much embarrassment with the comments being thrown from everyone. Stuart, Wendy’s Fiance was the lucky man that caught it.

The farewell circle was made and the good byes began. Was all going well til i reached mum and dad. Mum was fine, but dad had me in tears. It was a long hug and kiss, dad had made me feel so special and words can not thank either of them enough for such a special day.

We had an archway as we left and a limo waited for us. Finally we were in the car and guests were waving us farewell.

Back at the motel we were able to reflect on the most memorable night of our lives.

Both agreed it was as good as had imagined, if not better :)

On behalf of Craig and I we send out our thanks to all our family and friends who made our night the best ever.

Daisypath Ticker


As dad answered it was him who gave me away Craig and i moved up the stairs. That is when i looked him right in the eyes, i could see tears, tears of happiness and tear of joy. Vows were said, rings exchanged and then those words I’ve dreamt of were announced ‘Husband and Wife’. I was over joyed and apparently went in for the tongue…LOL this i don’t recall, but who cares, it was our moment!

Certificates were signed and more photos taken.

It was then the moment i had also been waiting for ‘ PLease stand for Craig and Kimberley Marchant’. As we walked out i was finally able to see all the familiar faces around us. Outside we said our hi’s and we received our congratulations off every one. Last but not least the sound i was waiting for, the ringing of the bells. I think my smiles summed up just how happy i was to hear them.

By 4pm guest had began leaving for reception, and the bridal party jumped back into the limos once again for the next lot of photos at Studley Park House. Also where the reception was being located (it was in the golf club though, the house is on the same property). When we arrived i was feeling a little tipsy, the wine i had after the church had gone to my head!

As the sun was setting, the best shots were coming out. After a long session we all headed to relax and get a drink.. or two.
