I was supposed to feel better in 2nd Tri!

I'm not well.

I've missed two days of work already and not even felt up to working from home in an attempt to not get behind with my work, which isn't like me. I love my job.

I've not been able to get a docs apt until tomorrow as well (darned weekends getting in the way!) I have a feeling that I'm going to be told that I'm pregnant with 3 kids at home, I'm bound to feel tired and ill, and that's probably a big part of it. But I am ill on top of all that, I'm sure I am.

It's my guts. I've never had the healthiest of guts, and when I'm pregnant I suffer worse with it. I went to the pharmacist a little over a week ago who have me fibergel  to help me "go" but after more than 7 days of taking it twice a day I'm not seeing any real change. I'm terribly bloated, uncomfortable all the time, not eating properly because I feel full all the time. It's causing a real drop in my energy levels which them makes me moody and short tempered with Hubby and the kids.

And because I'm "backed up" so badly I get sick. I'm trying to eat, mostly high fibre stuff, and drink lots of water and fruit juice, but there's no room for it in my tummy. And if I'm running about after the kids, or doing lots of bending to do the laundry, house work etc, I wind up being sick because I'm squeezing my over filled insides. I feel sick just sitting upright and try to lay down or at least stretch out on the sofa as much as I can. Which is probably just making my situation worse as I'm sure exercise would help, but who wants to jump about the place when doing it makes you vomit?

Really hoping the doc can help me out tomorrow. Even if it's just to give me something stronger than fibergel and clear me out - but I doubt there's much she'll be happy to prescribe while I have Bean in my belly.

Oh the glamour of pregnancy!

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

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

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.
