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!

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
