Only 12 weeks to go.... (or 10)

Wow.... 28 weeks preg. Only 12 weeks to go. 10 weeks if the consultant gets her way.

I really don't think this is going to be a big baby (sorry, yes, I'm back on this old chestnut again). I hopped on the scales yesterday and I have only gained 11 lb. My literature says:

Your total weight gain by this point is likely between 19 and 25 lbs (8.55 and 11.25kg).


I have my GTT on Tuesday which has me thinking about it all again. I swear I am not diabetic. I feel so well! I get tired in the afternoons but, you know... *wave hands madly* PREGNANT, and mother to a TODDLER, and we have loads of DIY to do... I think a nap for an hour or so in the afternoon is acceptable and not a sign of illness.

I appreciate that as I am a mother-to-be with a high BMI (polite way of saying obese at 14st 7lb and only 5 foot 4) they want to keep an eye on me, but I am over weight because I like large portions and don't really like exercise. Not because I have diabetes.

If anything, while I have been expecting this baby my arms and legs and face have become slimmer. It's only my bump and bum that have got bigger. And I'm not really eating any more than normal (in fact for the last few weeks I have been eating less as there's not much room in my belly for food these days). I think Squiggle is happily using up the "reserves" I have been building up since I stopped breastfeeding Jack.

My real gripe is that I'm not relishing the idea of having to starve myself from Monday night in order to take this test. I can only have water, or tea/coffee without milk (urgh!). Luckliy my apt is at 9am, but it can take over 2 hours and I can't eat until it's all over. And, as much as I think our local hossi is great, they do get behind and I can see it being lunch time before I get to eat anything. I'm going to feel so sick, and be so grouchy by then. I think I'll be calling into KFC on the way home.

And I am SO certain it's all going to be for NOTHING!

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…
