My GTT (Part 5, yes... still going on!)


2nd Growth Scan
Originally uploaded by chiggster
Back to the hospital again for another scan and diabetes clinic... I love the scan part though! My mum came with me this time. We had a lovely lady do the scan for us. We were in there for a good half hour. Squiggle was facing my spine and refused to turn round and face us, so I was tipped back until I was almost upside down and jiggled ever so slightly until baby finally woke up and turned to face us, giving us a big yawn and a kick. We go to see the little nose and lips! There is deffinatly an Oakes chin there (from me and my dad) but the rest is pure Walker!

We got a lovely pic, and the lady wouldn't take any money from me for it! She's clearly been charmed by my beautiful baby!

Next it was the dreaded GD Clinic. It didn't kick off too well when the GD Midwife got my name wrong (yes, the same one who said Squiggle was massive, and that the placenta was round the front. Her) but we laughed it off and got on with the clinic.

I saw a different midwife first (thankfully one who knows who I am), and she was fine. She checked my blood pressure (normal) and pee (normal, aside from showing me to be hungry, which I was). She looked at Squiggle's growth and said it looked normal.

Then I saw one of the diabetes staff who looked over my BGLs and said they were normal and she was happy.

Then the consultant came in (grrrrrrr) and started banging on about how I might seem normal now but it'll all change by the time I come back in 4 weeks (it sodding well will NOT!) and that she STILL wants to induce me early! Only a week early, but since I'm due on a Saturday I would actually be induced less than 7 days early, so what's the point?? *sigh*

Finally I was seen by the guy who looks at diet and such, and he was perfectly happy too. Although he accidentally walked off with the bulk of my notes. I have my Orange notes, and the front & back cover of my Green notes... but nothing in between! I'll stop in tomorrow to pick them up.

I'm booked in again for 4 weeks time, another scan & clinic. By then I'll be 37 weeks and they'll decide if I can continue normally or if my consultant (spit!) will interfere like she wants to. In the meantime I'll be seeing my nice midwives at the GPs in 2 weeks.

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 one of thos…

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…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
