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!




Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

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…
