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 on

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
