Bumpdate @ 26 Weeks


Baby Brain Alert!


The day I went to see the Midwife was not my best day! The appointment it self went fine, but everything else was just CRAZY! 

Baby is doing well be all accounts. Very active! MW took the heart rate twice because the little thing had been kicking manically just before she took the first reading so the heart rate was high. Once baby had chilled out for a few minutes it was back to normal. MW says that's all good. It's normal for heart rate to increase with exertion - a bit like us running up a hill.

I'm measuring a tad on the big side - surprise surprise! I have a growth scan coming up soon so no doubt that will confirm it too.

Aaaaaand I totally for got to pick up my MAT B1 form that I need for work. Just the latest in important things I am forgetting on a daily basis.

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

Your baby weighs more than 2 lbs (1000g), measures 9.6 inches from crown to rump (24cm) and its total length is about 15.3 inches (34cm). If your baby were born now, she would have about an 85% chance of surviving. Nonetheless, your baby still needs another 13 weeks of in utero development to be considered full term. Your baby's eyes, no longer fused shut, are now open. Your baby's skin still has a very wrinkled appearance, but it is protected and nourished by the covering of vernix, a waxy coating that keeps the skin supple. Your baby looks almost like a full term baby, but is still much thinner and smaller than she will be at birth.
Currently enjoying a weekend away with the kids, gonna need a day off to recover afterwards!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views.

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…
