Bumpdate @ 27 Weeks


Last week in 2nd Tri? Or 1st week in 3rd?


Now, depending on who you ask I am now either at the very start of my 3rd Tri, or the very end of my 2nd! Personally I'm not sure which is right, and I'm not really that bothered any more - not like I was with my first preg for example. 

Either way, the end is now in sight! Scary thought! Don't get me wrong, I am looking forward to meeting Baby Bean, and child birth doesn't scare me any more. But it's the thought that this preg - my last preg - is so very nearly at an end and it feels like it's gone in a blink of an eye. I've bought nearly nothing for this baby, and only a few basics for the hospital bag. I'm sure I will wind up on a shopping spree next week after my growth scan (where I can get baby's gender confirmed). It'as just all happening so quickly!

Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:
Your baby weighs about 2.5 lbs (1.1kg) and is about 10 inches (25cm) from crown to rump and 15.75 inches (35 cm) long from head to toe. At this time, the baby has tastebuds which allow it to distinguish between sweet, sour and bitter tastes. Brain tissue and brain development increases at this time as your baby grows the folds and grooves needed for a developed brain. Eyebrows and eyelashes are probably present and the hair on your baby's head is growing longer. Your baby's body is filling out, getting a bit fatter as fat deposition continues, but it is still somewhat red and wrinkled. Your baby is big enough for his presentation to be determined. That is, your caregiver can probably tell how your baby is oriented in your uterus. He may be breech (bottom down) or head first. If your baby is in a breech position now, there is no need to worry as there is still plenty of room and time for your baby to change positions. Your baby can feel pain and respond to it in the same way as a full term baby.
Growth Scan & GD Clinic next week!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
