Good blood, bad water (pos' TMI)

I got a call from my Doc on Tuesday, not something I am used to getting at all. He called to tell me that he had my test results. And it turns out that I am NOT ameamic at all. In fact where a level of 12 is good, I'm at 13.2 or 13.5 or something (I forgot what he said, just that is was very ggod and not anything to worry about at all. That's all I needed!), so I have very good blood! What I do have is a water infection...

Oh JOY!

Still, its not like I've never had one before - all those years of medication for one infection after another before my op when I was 13 means I am more than used to them! Normally I can spot one starting very early on, but with the pregnancy starting to make me not recognise my own body or some of it's functions I had no idea this time. I have some penacillin to take for the next few days. In a couple of weeks I have to take another tube of wee to the docs, and that should be that.

Doc was explaining how water infections are common in pregnanct women, although not this early on. He says this is most likely to be because I have had kidney problems in the past so we'll have to keep a close eye on it as I will be more prone to them.

To me, it's just a good excuse to sup loads of cranberry juice, and have regular loo breaks while on the road for work! Ha ha!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
