Feeling ill again

Don't know what's up with me these days. It seems like I'm poorly most of the time! This morning I woke up with a stinking headache and ear ache. I feel sluggish and generally achy but I have assumed that at least is normal. But driving Yorkie to work this morning I started to feel really sick too and called in sick to work. Sure enough, within 10 mins of walking back into the house I was being sick! Bye bye breakfast.

My eyes are sore too, and it feels like I've had no sleep when in fact I have slept very well this last couple of nights.

We do have a midwife appointment on Thursday though so I can run through any worries when I see her then. We'll probably be told that this is all normal etc and that I am worrying about nothing. I'm just so tired and sickly. Not to mention the endless hiccups, acid and general difficulty just moving about!

At least the Wiggle Bump seems to be ok. Still getting loads of movement, and I am being kept to a strict routine - I wake up at about 12am, 3.30 am and 6.45 am for a pee every night (just in time for the alarm to go off at 7am so I don't get jolted awake) even though getting in and out of bed is a real struggle and leaves me out of breath. If I haven't eaten by 8am I fell sick. I'm getting bigger and bigger and bigger... I keep catching sight of myself in the mirror and getting a hell of a shock! My legs are not the slimmest, but I still look like an orange resting on cocktail sticks! Or maybe a very large pear...

We've discovered that when Wiggle is giving me the most grief (i.e. kicking me until it really hurts) letting Yorkie talk to my belly calms the baba right down. Wiggle squirms over to where his voice is and goes fairly still, as though listening intently to dads voice. Not the kicking in the face we were expecting, but no complaints here! And I think I know who will be on lullaby duty (Yorkie has a better singing voice than me anyway).

Hello CB

Sorry to hear you are not feeling too well, if its any consolation most of what you describe my sister also went through.

I have replied to your email. My computer had a bit of a funny fit when I clicked send so if you have not received it let me know and I will try again.

Take care.

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 on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

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
