Guess who caught Jack's vomit virus?

Yup.... Me. Wonderful.

Just what every pregnant woman needs a month from her due date: Sickness, loss of appetite, and the resulting weight loss. I have lost a pound in weight since Saturday... I'm supposed to be gaining that sort of amount, not loosing it.

I started with it on Monday. Luckily I had a midwife apt for that day anyway and baby is fine. But since then I have hardly eaten and what I have has largely come back up. I'm tried all the time. I've slept for most of the last few days.

Baby is in and out of my pelvis too, mostly because I'm spending so much time ether sat or laid down because I am sick. This is no good. Also, baby is back to back with me - again no good - because I'm in the wrong position myself because I'm sick!

I am now dreading going into early labour (not that it's likely while baby keeps disengaging) but with no food inside me I have no energy so I wouldn't be able to cope.

Luckily Mark has not (so far at least) come down with it, so he's having to manage a very stroppy Jack and a sick me all while still trying to get the house something like ready. No easy task. I think Jack has seen the chink in the armour too as he has become Tantrum Boy 2010 meets The Whingemaster these last few days.

I've managed not to be sick so far today. But all I have had is 1/3 of a bowl of cereal for breakfast, and an apple just now for lunch. I'm struggling to keep the apple down at the moment but if I sit still and breath deep I stand a chance.

Oh well. 3 weeks 3 days to go.

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
