20 week scan!

Thankfully got the car back last night (another £37.60 spent, but still less than I'd set aside for the MOT so not too bad. I guess) so we didn't have to taxi, bus or walk to the RLI. And I didn't have to go with a full bladder either so I was much more comfortable this time round.

Still as wound up and excitable as a 4 year old on Christmas eve though!

We had a good long look at the baba this time, and Wiggle was in a better mood this time too, turning and rolling about to suit the scan instead of mooning us like last time! Although he was hiding behing my belly button for a short time! We saw the little heart beating! We saw the dark areas which we were told were stumach and bladder, which shows that baby is swallowing ok, and the the kidneys are working too. We got a very good look at the spine too when Wiggle flipped over as though to give the scanner the perfect view.

Yorkie asked if baby had all the right number of arms and legs etc and the lady giving us the scan assured us that they are all there, then gave us a full guided tour of babys arms, legs, hands and feet. Right on cue Wiggle lifted and arm and stuck out his thumb, moving it towards his open mouth, but stopping just short of actually sucking on the thumb. And I was a bit startled at how long Wiggle's legs look! Certainly not an Oakes family trait!

So it looks as though we have a fit and healthy normal baby! Hooray! We have the consultants appointment next week to make sure though. can't wait!

(( I keep refering to Wiggle as 'he'... we don't actually know if Wiggle is a boy or a girl. I just hate saying 'it' all the time. ))

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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…
