Giddy about Squiggle

It's all really starting to sink in! And I'm getting really giddy about it!

As of today we are 20 weeks gone.... with 20 weeks to go! (give or take)

The 20 week scan is on Thu morning, and I MIGHT JUST find out what we're having, but don't worry, I'll keep it to myself!

Tomorrow Kate & Dave are going to pick up & pay for our pram.

I only have 4 more working days left before maternity leave.

It's all sooooo real now! For the first 18 weeks or so this whole pregnancy didn't feel real at all. Now it's all I can think about!

I've started a poll about gender too, here's the link: http://www.learnmyself.com/personality.asp?p=take-poll&qp=34669x40DB452e and here's a few bits of info that might help you decide:

  • Hubby's family is predominantly male (or so I am told) and it is apparently his half of the baby making chemicals that determine gender
  • I feel VERY different this pregnancy, and only have a boy to compare against
  • 1st Tri Cravings: processed meat, rice with cheese.
  • 2nd Tri Cravings: Cereal, toast, noodles (cheapo curry ones), apple squash
  • Aversions: Tea & Coffee, smell of cigs (aka smell of my hubby - oops!)
  • Showing early & high, but is 2nd baba, so early is normal.
  • Kicks mostly on my right, first confirmed kicks 18-19 weeks
  • Not significant weight gain (only 5lb of a possible upto 14lb at this stage), in fact non-preggy-belly bits actually look & feel slimmer!
  • Dry skin & lips, but hair is not greasy

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…
