I think Squiggle's dropping

I have felt so uncomfortable and off all day. I woke up not feeling right, and have continued to feel icky all day. I have lower back ache too, and can't bend over as well as before - and I couldn't bend much before! Plus my belly button is doing funny things... it's sticking out but only at the top. 40 days to g to the due date.... 19 until Squiggle in considered "Term" and safe to be born. I find myself hoping Squiggle will make an early appearance (without the hospital forcing it), although not 19 days!!! I do think this baby has started to drop into my pelvis. It seems this is normal enough for this stage. I don't recall being as tired and achy as this last time at this stage. After all, I was still working at this point last time, even if it was a desk job by now.

Jack and I haven't done anything today short of a trip to the tip and Wickes with Mark, and I still feel wiped out! Possibly because we've done so much over the last few days and it's catching up with me. I'll be having (another) early night tonight coz we're out again tomorrow, ideally for most of the day so Mark can carry on in peace and for more than just 2-3 hours. And Jack and I have stuff planned for Wednesday, and possibly Thursday, and Nana's over on Friday too...

I think I'll be sleeping on Saturday. I may palm my frst born off on his daddy and stay in bed!

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
