Midwife, MAT B1, & Mat Leave

Oooo! Feeling organised today! Had my 25 week midwife apt today (a week & a day early for a change coz of Christmas). Smudge is fine! Had a good listen to the heart beat. My BP seems to be back to normal too. I also picked up my MAT B1 form (late coz I was at RLI for my last apt, not the with the middy) sooooo that meant I could officially tell work - as if they dont all already know - and book my mat leave! I am working until Fri 30th March, and returning the first week of 2013. That sounds so far away at the moment! 2013....

From now on I'm being seen every 2 weeks!!! I cant believe we've got to this stage already! 16 weeks to go IF I'm allowed to go full term!

Meantime though my boys are sick. Jack spent 2 nights in bed with us over the weekend - totally unheard of! He was sick Sunday night as well which freaked him out. Tom was sick tonight too but seems to have got over it quicker, and since Jack is on the mend I'm hoping both will be ok by Christmas Eve.

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
