Bumpdate @ 14 Weeks


A quiet and poorly week.



I'm still off work sick at the moment, although I have been off to see the doctor. She has given me some more medication to help me through and it seems to be working better. I have also discovered that I have been misusing my sinus spray and that may be impacting on my health too. Long story short, over use of these nasal decongestant sprays can cause rebound congestion and lead to an addiction of sorts. You get to the stage where you cannot clear your sinuses without the spray, but its over use of the spray causing worse congestion, leading you too use it even more etc etc... So I am going "cold turkey" which is leading to sleepless nights (due to not being able to breathe well) and added sickness in the morning when my stomach rejects all the mucus that has slipped down my throat during the night. Not nice! But hopefully short term, I should be over it within a week. 

Baby Bean, however, is doing fine! The doctor actually gave me the strangest - yet lovely - complement of "Oo, you have a nice womb in there!" when she felt my belly at my appointment. 

Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:

Your baby measures about 3.7 to 4.1 inches (about 9.3 to 10.3cm) from crown to rump and weighs about 1.75 ounces (50g).
Your baby's bones still consist of soft cartilage but they are now beginning to harden and the development of the bones and the marrow continues. Her ears are developing into a more recognizable shape and any hair already on the head and brows will become thicker.
Your baby may already be sucking her thumb.
Her skin is thin and translucent and all her blood vessels can be seen through it.
Her hair continues to grow on her head and her eyebrows. If her hair will be dark, the follicles will start to generate pigment to color her hair.
Your baby is moving more now and is becoming increasingly flexible. She can bend her arms at the elbows and wrists and she can make tiny fists with her hands.
The kids are on holiday from school for a week now. I have a feeling I am going to be shattered by the end of it and begging to go back to work!

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
