1 week till dating scan

Ooooh! The dating scan is a week today!

I'm excited and terrified!

If I get bad news I'm going to fall apart. Too many people know, but my big worry is Jack who is expecting to meet baby next year, and see a photo of baby after the scan.

I have no reason to worry. I have no bleeding, no cramping, no sign that anything is wrong at all. I'm just frightened. We've been so lucky with Jack & Tom, while people around us have not been half as fortunate. I fear that our luck will run out. Stupid isn't it... I'll blame the hormones!

This time next week I'll be a wreck! The scan is at 9.40am... so I'll be setting off in 7 days 1 hour. I really am counting down the hours! I neeeeeeed to relax!

Recipe: Pigsty Pie

This is one that we made up, although we are far from the first or only people to make a pie using pork or pork mince and call it a Pigsty Pie. So let's just say that this is our version of it. It smells great and reminds me of stuffing at Christmas, making it feel much more "naughty" than it is! This serves four people and it a nice 9 points per serving. You will need these for the mash: 400g potatoes 400g sweet potatoes 4-5 good sized carrots Salt Pepper Nutmeg Simply chop the roots, boil in salted water until tender, and mash! Add salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste. The pie filling: 10 sprays low fat cooking spray (e.g. 1 cal) 1/2 lb lean pork mince 2 onions, finely chopped 3 apples, diced 1 leek, chopped 5-6 big mushrooms 2 tbs plain flour 1 tsp sage 1 tsp parsley Salt Pepper 1 vegetable stock cube 1/2 hot water 2 tsp English mustard Fry the onions in the cooking spray until they start to soften, add the mince. Once the meat starts to colour add the apple, leek and mush
