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.

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 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

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…
