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 it's Jack's 4th Birthday! No idea what they are going to do with me.... Are they going to induce? Are they leaving me alone? Do they even know themselves? Surely I cannot be such a medical mystery just because I have big babies. Its not like they are record breakers (I was a bigger baby than Jack or Tom).

Still... More scans! Whooo!

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…
