37 week growth scan & GD clinic


Talk about a busy day yesterday! It was Jack's 4th Birthday so we were up nice and early so we could see him open his presents before he had to go to nursery and Mark had to go to work. AND it was Jack's birthday party at 4pm so I was a bit rushed at the hospital.
Mum came over to mind the boys so I could get up to the GD clinic in peace. I had a lucky run, finding a parking space quickly that was close to the doors (unheard of) and then being told the clinic was quiet and I was only 2nd on the list too! Fab! I had a lovely young lady to my scan, she was chatty and friendly and managed to find Smudges face on the scan! I said it was typical since this was the one time I hadn't brought any money for a photo... so she gave it to me for free!!!
It was a very short wait to see the GD clinic. They confirmed that Smudge was still measuring big (3423g so over 7lb 7oz already) so suggested I be booked in for an induction if I was ok with that. I said I was and they put me in the book for Mon 9th - until I pointed out that was the Easter Bank Holiday Monday.... so they said Tue 10th instead (they try not to do stuff like this on the bank holidays, reserving that time for natural births & emergencies). I tried to push for the Thu before Easter (so I could stay in over the weekend, hee hee) but I was laughed off. Damn...
So now I have something to work towards :D I still want to have an Easter Weekend baby, and I want to beat my induction date coz I still don't trust an induction not to result in a c-section. Today I am "term" so I think anything goes! Mwahaahaahaa!

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…
