Secret Diary Post - Counting Days and Points



I am SOOOOOO struggling with watching my diet! Most of the time I feel like I could kill for some carbs.

Soft bread rolls, hot dog buns, that kind of thing. Pasta, rice, noodles, creamy mash.... It's all I want! Not good when you're trying not to gain a ton of weight!

Where I nabbed this photo from
and why I'm trying not to get hooked!
I have revised my Weight Watchers. I was going to wait until 2nd Tri to do this but I changed my mind! I have altered it to say I am breastfeeding which gives me extra points so I can have what Bean is asking for, but not gorging myself for the sake of it. I can change it again to "maintain" instead of "loose" weight, but I'm leaving that for now. I'm sure I will be glad of those points later in the pregnancy.

But as well as this sudden increase in appetite, I am also being sick. Although not after I have eaten. I feel sick almost all the time. I feel like I have eaten too much salt or swallowed a mouthful of seawater. In the mornings, before I've even got up most times, I'm nauseous and have to concentrate hard of my breathing to avoid being sick. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't and I have to run to the bathroom and hope that my delightful children have remembered to flush (they usually haven't)

Hubby is getting fed up with me being tired, forgetful, and useless all the time. He doesn't say anything, but I can tell. I've never been this tired this early before, but then I've never been pregnant and had 3 kids already before. I don't recall ever feeling this sick before, but I'm not being as physically sick as a lot of other women I've chatted with so I'm trying not to harp on about that too much. My Dad asked if there was a chance I was having twins, and what would I do if I was. Simple answer is "deal with it" but I'm hoping there is just one little Bean in there. Yes we would deal with twins, we'd find a way. But I'd prefer not to have to! And anyway, it's not that likely.

Anyway, it's now just 6 days till my booking appointment! I can't wait! I am so excited! I really really hope she can give me a scan appointment!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…
