25 week bump

I love my big belly. I love being pregnant. I love feeling this wee baba shuffle about and kick. I love watching my belly twitch and roll around. I love grabbing Marks hand just in time for him to miss the best kicks, but that baby's timing is impeccable when it comes to kicking him on the nose.

Afternoon naps are WONDERFUL!

I find it funny that I forget how big I am and that I get wedged in small spaces, or knock things over when I turn round.

I don't care if I get stretch marks. I don't care that I can't see my feet or shave my legs. I wonder if I'll get a line up my tummy or of my belly button will pop out.

I'm a tad embarrassed that some times when I bend over I make strange noises, or fart, or simply can't get back up again without help.

I'm slightly erked that my knickers have started to pinch and that my bras fail to contain my bust. Mark just finds it funny. And I really wish I didn't get heartburn.

Being at this stage in my pregnancy is great! Less then 2 weeks now until I hit 3rd tri. I have back ache, swollen ankles, and the inevitable labour pains to look forward to.

Oh.... and Squiggle to hold in my arms and love forever. Which makes it all worth while!

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
