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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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.
