Happy Mount Park

Todays pics >>clicky<<

Today is the first day in AGES that I've felt well enough AND the weather has been good enough to take the boys out properly.... So we went to Happy Mount Park for the morning.

It's still out of season really so the Playland (cars n bikes bit) and the Splash Park are still closed, but the smaller playground, Adventure Land, and Pirates In The Park are still open... so we hit them all!

The kids had a great time and were shattered at the end. I stopped off at McDonalds on the way home but they were sound asleep so I picked up a drive thru happy meal each for them and they had them at home (cold, yuk) after a well earned nap.

They are having some quiet play time on the Wii now while I have a rest and think about what to do for tea. Bliss......

33wk Growth Scan

This is Smudge at 32+6, refusing to turn round and face the camera! Back of baby's head is on the right there, with the larger blob on the left being the body. To be fair, Smudge was fast asleep!

So I had a very very long afternoon at the GD clinic, which included a very nice young medical student trying (and failing) twice to take my blood before she went to get a doctor to do it instead - I look like a proper pin cushion!

And 3 sets of ideas about what to do with me. My notes said if I was ok with my blood sugars then I could be discharged from GD clinic, end of story. BUT then one of the registrars said - as my baby is still big - I should go for JUST the clinic and no scan in 4 weeks. Then I was seen by another doctor who simply could not get his head round the fact that I clearly do not have GD but still have big babies, so he's put me down to come back in 4 weeks for clinic AND a scan. Just in case.

So my next clinic is in 4 weeks. The day before my term day. And also i…

Kitchen cupboards!

Look! They're up! They have stuff in! They don't wobble! Here's hoping they stay up this time... And don't fall on my head showering me in broken glass while I stand, dressed only in a towel, cringing and scared to death to take a single step for fear of bleeding to death!Like last time...Still. Hubby put them up this time and I have rather more confidence in his DIY skills than those of my dad. That said I'd trust the kids over my dad these days (and they are 3, 1, and not due to be born yet!)Tis a landmark moment though... 24 hrs of use and still standing! Well done Mark! Xxxx

Nasty ear infection :(

I had my midwife appointment yesterday. I also had a doctors appointment. Because I'm ill. Again. This time I have a nasty ear infection, and a clogged sinus. This has meant that my face felt like it was being ripped open with jagged glass for the last 3-4 days, while also feeling like someone was hammering a blunt pencil into my ear. I was actually reduced to tears by the pain on 3 occasions. I haven't been able to sleep and I have taken way more paracetamol than I should have. All this just as I came out of yet another lot of D&V (3rd this preg). Anyway.... it's all good news now. I have antibiotics for my ear, and my latest water infection, and I am starting to feel better (if still deaf and dizzy). Smudge is doing fine - I got to hear baby's heart beat again - and today is only 9 weeks to my due date :o) My only real concern today is trying to occupy Jack & Tom who seem to be suffering from cabin fever but it's seriously icy out there and I have no sen…

30 weeks today

Wow. Just 10 weeks to Smudges due date! It feels like forever and no time at all, all at once!
Not been a happy few days at chez walker. Me and Tom have had d&v, jacks full of a nasty cold, and hubbys had a banging headache. Since Tue lunch time I've eaten 1 slice of toast (which came up again) and a pear. It's Thu afternoon... Can't help thinking Smudge must be suffering but I'm still getting loads of movement and, to be fair, I have plenty of reserves!
I'm home alone with the boys today and finding it really hard work. Tom's feeling better and both kids are wanting to play but I'm still feeling like death. I'm no fun for them like this. But there's very little I can do... I can hardly keep my eyes open, I go dizzy just climbing the stairs for the loo, it took me half an hour to make their sandwiches for lunch.
I'll be glad when we're all fit n well again, coz this is getting me down.
