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 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

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
