Time is flying!

Unbelievable... time is whizzing by so fast with this preg (remind me I said that in the 2nd half of my 3rd tri please). I am now over 17 weeks! I finally have my first GD Clinic consultants appointment tomorrow afternoon. I'm hoping that I get some answers and get to make some plans after this appointment, but I doubt it will go that way. It will prob be a case of nattering at me and telling what they want me to do over the coming weeks.

The future of my pregnancy, blood sugar testing
(aka very sore fingertips!)
The letter I got says this appointment could be 1-2 hours long. They wont do my blood sugar test tomorrow, I know that much, because I haven't been sent the fasting letter. So they'll possibly arrange for that test to be done some time after my 20 week scan. They might give me the blood testing kit again, but I already have two! I've just checked one of them and it still works fine. I'll take it with me tomorrow.

I'll likely see the consultant (or one of her registrars, since we don't get along), midwife, dietitian, and maybe someone else... I'll get my blood pressure checked, by belly poked, maybe I'll be weighed and measured, maybe some bloods taken, and I do need to hand in a pot of pee! There will be a lot of waiting around to see people only for me to say "yes, just like last time then".  I must remember to take a book or get something new loaded onto my Kindle App!

Ideally I would like them to say "we've been here twice already, lets just keep an eye on your blood sugar and book your induction for such-n-such a day, here are some growth scan appointments". That would be my ideal! But that would be far too simple and I doubt very much that it will happen tomorrow, although that will be the outcome eventually...

Oh.... and it's 3 weeks till scan day!

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

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.
