12 week scan!


This is Squiggle!
Isn't she lovely!
(Although I am guessing about her being a She, it's far too early to tell).

I've been a little nervous about this scan. There have been a lot of women on the forum I visit who have had the worst news possible at their 12 week scan. And even though I was certain everything was going to be ok, there's always that little niggle in the back of your mind that maybe the worst will happen. And with the 6 week early scan showing Squiggle to be small for our dates there's that added concern,
Luckily, though, every thing is perfect! We got a lovely picture of squiggle (which for now I have had to photo instead of scan since I have lost my scanner cable, doh!).
I can't help thinking that this baby is a girl, even though it's too early to tell, so forgive me as I keep referring to the baby as "she" or "her"! She was very obliging in the scan (unlike Jack who mooned us his 12 week scan), she laid on her back so we could get a look at her profile, see her spine and tummy, legs, arms and cord. You could see her heart beating too. Other than that she was pretty still though (sleeping it would seem) and just as I was asking if that was normal (again, Jack was wiggling all over the place at his so that's all I have to compare against) she did a little shuffle!
We were recorded as being 11 weeks and 5 days, with a due date of June 5th, which is only one day off what I thought (the 6th) so that means that baby is developing at the right rate too (and is not small like we thought at the 6 week scan).
In the end the only thing I wasn't happy about with the scan was not being able to let my dad come in to see. He missed the whole of my pregnancy with Jack and I'm trying to get him included in this one so invited him to the scan. I knew that I could only have 1 person with me in the scan, but was hoping that Mark and my dad could swap part way through and that this would still count as one person as they would not be in there at the same time.... but no. It wasn't allowed, and as much as I wanted my dad to see, it's more important for Mark to see his unborn child. Still, my dad was the first person to get a scan photo, instead of the last!

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'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…

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
