Bumpdate @ 25 Weeks


Need. More. Sleep.


I don't know why, but I've suddenly lost the ability to sleep. Or at least it feels that way. Some of it is pregnancy related; uncomfortable bump, sciatica, needing to pee etc. Some of it is mum related; kids falling out of bed, getting up too early, preventing me from napping in the day.... If you have kids yourself then you'll understand what I'm on about.

The really mean thing is that even when I do sleep I've started getting bad dreams again. Mostly about Hubby leaving. Which is daft because he's not given me a reason to be paranoid, with the exception of being at work we're all but joined at the hip (he will hardly let me out of his sight in case "something happens" to be and baby), and frankly we're getting on great. It's after baby is born that we row, lol, hormones meets sleep deprivation meets massive change..... but even then we make up within the day and it's all ok. 

I need my sleep though. I'm finding every day tasks difficult because my concentration is not what it should be. I can't even make toast without burning it.

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

Your baby weighs just under 2 pounds (850g) and could possibly survive if delivered now. Your baby measures approximately 9.2 inches (23cm) from crown to rump. He is growing fast and gaining weight now. His skin is less transparent and is becoming opaque as fat builds up. Your baby's heart is beating 120 to 160 beats per minute, as you have already heard at several doctor or midwife visits. Until now, your baby's eyes have been sealed shut, but he reopens them this week. The eyes are almost fully formed and the retinas contain all the layers they will have when your baby is born. Your baby's eyes are blue right now, no matter the ethnic origin or eye-color of you and your partner since eyes do not acquire their final color until months after birth. Your baby is lean right now, but is getting fatter all the time as fat is being deposited. Your baby's skin is getting thicker and paler and is becoming less red and wrinkled as more fat is deposited. Your baby has eyebrows, eyelashes and fingernails, though all are short and need to grow more.

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…
