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 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
