The First Secret Diary Post - BFP!

 It's going to be a while before I publish this post, although I will date it for today, 8/12/13. I'm not publishing it now because it's too early to tell family and stuff so I don't want them stumbling on it by accident (which happened with my second baby, serious social media slip up!) I'm going to carry on posting as normal, and all my pre-12 week pregnancy posts are going to be labelled "Secret Diary" and will be published to the rest of the blogging world once we've told all the family.

Today I got a faint BFP  on a cheap pregnancy test. I am beyond excited! Hubby isn't willing to believe it yet because it is faint, but it is there.

I am 11dpo according to Fertility Friend, giving me an estimated due date of Aug 20! That couldn't get any better! I so desperately want my baby born before September because of the school cut off! Because of my GD history I'll prob get booked in for induction a couple of days earlier than that as well, so very little chance of baby going over Aug 31st.

When I see the midwife they'll give me a due date 7-10 days sooner than that because they count from the first day of my last period rather than when I'm likely to have ovulated, and my cycles are long. Instead of ov around cd14 it was cd25, but my dating scan will sort that out.

It makes me laugh that this Monday I should be hearing from my doc about my blood test results to see if I have ovulated or not. Safe to say I have! Should I tell her? Or should I wait a bit? I doubt my preg will show up on the test as baba wouldn't have implanted yet. And I can't see the midwife till 8 weeks anyway. And then there's the fertility clinic too! If all goes well, I'll be in my 2nd Tri by the time my appointment rolls round!

It's looking like the Angus Castus and the weight loss really kicked things off for me. Now I've got this BFP I don't want to start lumping on the fat again, just a nice baby bump. I've done some reading,  and when preg I should have about 200 extra cals a day (it's 500 when breast feeding) so I'm thinking I'll stick with Weight Watchers and adjust my points as though I was mix feeding a baby - which will give me the extra points to make sure I eat enough - so I can control my portions while still providing me and baba with all the goodness we need. It wouldn't be a weight loss diet, but a diet management system! I want a bump, not a belly! Although I'll speak to my midwife and doctor about it, and my GD consultant/dietitian when I see them. I'm sure they will agree with my meal management!

I am actually trembling with excitement as I type this! Although the 2 cups of cappuccino I have drunk while waiting for Jack to come out if his grading might have a little something to do with that too. I am contemplating calling my mum and telling her now, but she might be a work. I just want to talk about it! I'm excited!

And what's more..... the "close friend" I posted about earlier - the one I was so jealous of - is my sister in law! She has an estimated due date just 5 days before mine!

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'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…

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
