Bumpdate @ 21 Weeks


Eating Naughty Stuff


The scan was GREAT! Baby was a bit naughty and wouldn't play to start with (which meant I had to go for a 20 min walk and a drink, then come and get re-scanned) but the upshot of it was that baby is bob-on for 20 weeks and 2 days. Just what I wanted to hear!

This weekend we're at a family wedding, which is interesting from a pregnancy point of view. My bump is almost twice the size of my sister-in-laws, who is due 3 days before me (although she is slimmer and only on her 2nd child, as apposed to be being chunky and on my 4th baby while the other 3 were all over 9 1/2 lb!). I did a HUGE amount of driving too, which caused baby to give me a massive kicking attack on a regular basis (doesn't like me sitting down too long, and neither does my sciatica). 

We stayed at a hotel with the kids, sharing a room with all of them. I'm so glad the bed was comfy! I broke the pregnancy rules at breakfast by drinking way too much coffee and eating fried eggs with soft yolks. At the wedding I ate sea food! *gasp!* But my my my it was allllll good! And since I've never had food poisoning off stuff like this at weddings / hotels before I don't see why I suddenly would while I'm pregnant (so there).

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

Your baby measures about 7.6 inches (19cm) from crown to rump and weighs about 12.25 ounces (350g). Eyebrows have developed. His digestive system now functions in a rudimentary manner. Undigested amniotic fluid passes into his bowel which he will eventually excrete after birth. Your baby can suck and swallow and may even suck his thumb. Your baby's senses are developing, especially his sense of touch. He can feel his face and stroke his arms and legs.

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
