Bumpdate @ 19 Weeks


A Busy Week


It's been a very busy week, but not baby stuff. It was Jack's 6th Birthday on Friday so that's taken some organisation. I've had the new car in and out of the garage (it has an injection leak, but it's covered by the warranty so no big deal) and we're making plans for George's birthday in a few weeks time too.

I had another bout of sickness on Tuesday morning, but it seems to have been a one off. Baby Bean is still kicking away! Baby seems more active on the late afternoon and evening - in other words once the kids are in bed and I can put my feet up for a bit. Babies in the belly are more likely to sleep when you're moving about and making noise too, so it makes sense that as soon as it's all quiet and I sit still for a bit my newest little one should wake up and start doing star jumps!

It's also occurred to me that at some point this week - assuming I get my induction around 38-39 weeks - I will slip past the half way mark! OK, we don't officially start counting down till next week, but I doubt very much that I will be allowed to reach 40 weeks.

Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:
Your baby weighs about 9 ounces (260g) and measures about 5.6 to 6.4 inches (14 to 16cm) from crown to rump. Her skin is thickening and developing multiple layers- the epidermis and the dermis, the deeper layer where it will form fat. Your baby is now also developing a waxy protective coating for her skin called vernix caseosa. The vernix protects your baby's skin which is continuously submersed in amniotic fluid. Vernix, which is particularly thick around the eyebrows is held in place by tiny downy hairs called lanugo. Your baby can now grip with her fists. Toenails and scalp hair are growing. At this point, it may be possible to determine the baby's sex by ultrasound, if the baby cooperates, but the ultrasound technician will rarely guarantee the sex based on the ultrasound results as mistakes are sometimes made at an early ultrasound. You can hear the baby's heartbeat with a Doppler ultrasound device or a stethoscope.
1 week and 2 days until my scan!!!!




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.

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…
