35 weeks down, 35 days to go!

Wow..... 35 days.... It's the 1st of May today which also means that Squiggle is due NEXT MONTH and could easily come THIS MONTH!

In another week I can join a different thread in my forum. There's a 36-37+ weeks signs spotting thread where imminent mums-to-be can chat about what signs of early labour they are (or are not) getting. One more weeks and I can increase the cups of raspberry leaf tea from 1 to 2, and then more as my due date gets closer (just in case they DO induce me, at least my body might be slightly better prepared).

I am proud of my weight gain still. The FF site says this:
You may have gained up to 30 pounds or more by this point.
I have actually to date gained only 17lb! And that's with Squiggle being on the bigger end of perfectly normal.So hopefully I wont be too blimpy when Squiggle gets here and I'll get a good start on my healthy weight loss / fitness plan.

Mum came over yesterday and we went baby shopping! She bought us the new mattresses we needed for the moses basket and swinging crib, and bought Squiggle's bouncing chair too (the same one we had for Jack which was brilliant!) She also treated me and Jack to a Mc Donalds, which was very welcome! Especially to a snot filled Jack who just wanted a fuss making of him (poor wee poorly boy!)

The loft is pretty much done now too, save for a bit of stapling up of membrane (???) then all that needs doing is actually getting the stuff up and out of the way. But I'm insisting that Mark has a day off from DIY today and takes Jack out instead (which actually gives me a break although I'm probably going to spend it catching up on housework) but we are only a few short days away from me being able to get back into the nursery and then I can start playing with baby things again!!!

I keep browsing the Kiddicare website for things we might need, but daren't order anything until I've found out what we have that's reusable and what we don't otherwise I'll end up ordering stuff we have tons of, and not stuff we need. Still I LOVE window shopping (or should that be MS Windows TM since it's online?)

Ahhh..... I have the house to myself for a few hours. It's bliss! Just me and the telly! I think I'll stick some washing on, give the kitchen a once over and consider mopping the downstairs, in between coffees... (domesticity, eh?)

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
