Second GD Clinic

At least I got to this appointment on time. I managed mess up my pee sample though... How dumb is this? I got to the hospital practically peeing my pants to make sure I could provide a sample. Got a tube from reception, over filled it, tried to tip some down the loo, slipped and dumped the lot! Could not squeeze out another drip! Doh!

Still, no big deal. I just need to make sure I get one to the midwife on my next visit.

Clinic went ok. First off I saw Jackie the midwife who checked my blood pressure, which was fine. Then I was visited by the Mighty Consultant herself, who admitted my bloods were all fine still. She doubts I can maintain it though because I am "much older" than last time (2 years!!!) so I need to keep testing.  I asked about arranging my induction now but she explained that they can't do that since at this stage the baby's rate of growth is too fluid. It would be more stable at 30-32 weeks and then they can judge how soon to deliver baby. Booking me in now would likely result in numerous date changes. Once she'd gone I was seen by Zoe who checked over my blood results, then I was told I could go, the dietitian didn't need to see me unless I wanted to see him. I didn't especially.... (He's nice, but I hate hanging around the clinic).

Consultant said she would make me an appointment for 5 weeks time, then gave me one for 6 weeks. But never mind... At least then I won't have to find a sitter for the kids coz hubby will be home.  I'll get a growth scan and see all the people from the clinic again.

I'll be 28 weeks gone at that point, and just starting my 3rd Trimester!  Where on earth is the time going??

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.
