Giving birth on TV

Is it just me, or over the last few years has their been an explosion of shows like One Born Every Minute? I'm not usually one for day time telly (it's usually kids TV through the day if the telly is on) but today I have a house full of poorly, sleeping kids so I thought I'd flick through the Old Idiot Box. I've stumbled across Maternity Ward shortly followed by Desperate Midwives. And yes, I'm watching!

Now I'll be honest, I LOVE OBEM! I've recorded the whole of the latest series and I am saving it for when I do get pregnant next (watching it any sooner than our planned TTC will have me flushing my pill by the 1st ad break). Can't help but wonder how I would feel if they came to our local maternity ward, if I was a mum-to-be about to give birth while they were hanging about with their cameras. Would I want to be on the show? It's no secret that I am an over-sharer, especially when it comes to TTC, pregnancy, and birth stories.... but there's a huge difference between writing a blog or posting in forums, and giving birth on national television.

Ok, there's a bit of me that would LOVE it! Maybe I should go and drop an email to Channel 4 now......

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

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
