Viable!!!!

Wow! I can't believe  haven't posted on here for nearly 3 weeks. I can't believe I am 24 weeks pregnant, and viable! (Basics on viability) It's been a busy time. The Easter Holidays took up a massive amount of my time, and Georgie turned 2 as well which means he's had his first settling in day at nursery. We've had visits from family too. It's as though I have blinked and missed 3 weeks!

To be honest, there isn't much to report on the pregnancy front. I don't see my midwife for over a week, and it's another 4 weeks until my scan and GD clinic. I'm just plodding along. I'm getting noticeably bigger though, and now that the weather is getting warmer and I'm not always wrapped up in my coat when I go out people are starting to notice. Some of the teachers at Jack's school have come over and congratulated us, one of my neighbours caught up with me this morning and tentatively asked if I was pregnant again (she knew a while back that we'd planned for another one). Some of the mums on the school run claim I have "suddenly popped" but I think they just hadn't noticed how big I was getting under my coat, hee hee!

Baby is very active. It's lovely! Some times I actually laugh out loud when I feel the little hands and feet move through my belly. Jack and Tom have both been able to feel baby move. George probably has too, although he wouldn't know how to articulate it. He spends enough time laid across my belly when baby is kicking, I'd be very surprised if he hadn't felt something.

I'm starting to count down now. Less than 16 weeks until my due date! I'm starting to gather stuff together now that I'm past the 24 week point. I put an order in for a new holdall this morning which I will use as my hospital bag. My little suitcase is tatty now and I just fancy something pretty and new and nice. I have a list in my head of what I need to put in it - because I'll have at least one over night because they will need to monitor me and baby overnight due to the GD - and I'll be picking a little up each week with my regular shopping.

I just know I'll end up packing, unpacking, and repacking about a million times between now and August! But that's all part of the fun. I'm just itching for Hubby to get that bathroom finished now because I need to make room for the crib in our room. There's a rickety old bookcase in the way that needs replacing and relocating. He wont let me do it, so he'd better crack on!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…
