Secret Dairy Post - Post BFP Docs Appointment


It's been less than two weeks but it's felt like forever since I got that first BFP. Today is finally Doctors day! So I waited my turn and gleefully trotted into my Doctors room when she called for me. As I took off my coat she asked "So.... how did the pregnancy test go?" I grinned and reached into my bag "Would you like to see? Don't worry, they're in a bag!" She laughed and had a look at the two tests I did this morning, one a regular pregnancy test, the other a clear blue digital.



She decided against any further tests! "Well, I think you're pregnant!"

We chatted for a little about my change in diet and my weight loss. When I explained what I was eating she was perfectly happy for me to carry on with the changes I have made. She said that loss in the 1st trimester is fine, and I should focus on not gaining any weight in my 2nd and 3rd trimesters. She said that "babies are perfect parasites" that take everything they need from their mums to grow and be healthy. My current dietary choices cover that and if I carry on as I am (losing a little in 1st tri and maintaining in the 2nd & 3rd) we'll both be healthier for it. And yes there is the added bonus that I would be slimmer after my baby is born which is nice too.

So that's me safely guilt free for losing weight! (And armed against the haters who would gladly send me abuse about harming my baby by "dieting".) I am still eating loads of food: 3 proper meals a day plus fruit & veg snacks all through the day, and I feel fab! Apart from being tired by 5pm... but that's just being pregnant with 3 kids under 6 at home already!

She asked me to book in with the midwife for when I felt I was 8 weeks pregnant.  I believe my little Bean is 3 weeks and 1 day old, which would make me 5+1 weeks (5 weeks + 1 day) pregnant. Only until my dating scan my pregnancy will be judged on my last period which make me 6+4 weeks. 8 weeks would be smack bang in the middle of the holidays - and wrong anyway. So I asked for an appointment in around 3 weeks time. I got Mon 13th Jan which will be 8+5! That will do very nicely! 

Since that will put me around 10 and a half weeks by their reckoning I might not have to wait too long from my "booking in" to get my first scan!

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…
