Best GD Clinic EVER!

I think this must the first time in 3 pregnancies I have come out of a GD clinic without a single complaint. In fact I am PRAISING them today!

Scan went really well. Bean is still measuring big, but not scary big, just the usual "one of my babies" big. In fact when I saw the consultant she said to me that she would worry if my baby WASN'T big, and that while the growth charts are called "personalised" they do not in fact take into account a woman's previous babies. And this baby was bob on for one of mine.

Haven't I been saying this all along?

My BP is normal. My bloods are normal. No need to see the dietitian. No sign of that registrar coming to see me, and no mention AT ALL of metformin!

I mentioned about the fuss I have had with my prescription for the UTI I got, the one Asda Pharmacy "couldn't find" then "didn't have in stock" and then "couldn't full-fill because it's been discontinued" since I was expected to do another pee sample. The consultant was fuming! She said the pharmacist should not have sent me away with nothing, that they are obligated to give me something, and that what they should have done was call my GP (who issued the prescription) and discuss it with them in order to get a different brand they COULD supply. She then arranged for me to have a sample tested then and there and a new prescription for the hospital pharmacy to fill. Which they have.

But the best bit of the clinic? It was when she said these words to me: "We will definitely induce you at 38 weeks. Ish."

Ish..... definitely 38 weeks ISH? *roll eyes* Well, at least I can say to my mum now to keep the first full week in August open for child minding duty. Since both my previous inductions were booked in for Tuesdays we're wondering if maybe Tuesday 5th Aug might be THE DAY! I'm back at the clinic in 3 weeks, maybe THEN I will get an actual date!

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

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

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
