Consultants appointment

So I had my consultants appointment today. I have issues with my kidneys that they wanted to check up on, and also because they considered Jack to be "big".

Apparently he was 4.4 kilo (I only do lb & oz) and if he's 4.5 he'd have crossed some threshold or other.... Don't fully understand. But the consultant is worried that this baby might also be big. Bigger even. And if it looks like I'm going to have a bigger baby this time she's implied that I should opt for a section.

I don't want a section.

The alternative being (again, if baby is big) an early induction. Like 37 - 38 weeks. IF my cervix is soft enough.

A better idea.... but still not ideal! I want to do this relatively naturally! (as in GIMMI DRUGS for the pain, but let baby some when baby is ready, and out door nature provided!)

I had a 3rd degree tear with Jack which has caused some fiber damage to my bum (making going to the loo difficult if I get even so much as a hint of constipation), and this could happen again and even be worse. Even if this baby is smaller.

I'm being checked out for gestational diabetes too. They checked me for this time and again with Jack and I never had it. I just ate a lot of sugar (3 packs of Jaffa cakes in a single sitting. Often! Hence FAT BABY!) but this time I don't have the sugar craving so apart from some choccy (no more than I usually have) and the Honey Hoops I've been eating I'm not on a sugar overload. I'm 100% certain it'll come up fine.

So I'm a little miffed. At no point was my belly measured - or even TOUCHED - so there's nothing I know of to go on about Squiggle being big, apart from Jack being big. I thought the deal was Every Baby Is Different ... !

But on the bright side, I do get 2 more scans! One at 28 weeks and the other at 36. So I get to see my Squiggle again BEFORE the Big Day!

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
