Bumpdate @ 31 Weeks



"Definitely Ish"

This has been a GOOD week! GD Clinic & Scan went well on Wednesday. There was no mention of me starting metfomin (doubt it will come up again now), my baby is still measuring big, but not big for me. Consultant said that while the growth charts are called "personalised" they do not take into account any previous babies. This baby is following the same lines as my other 3 pregnancies. She says she's not worried about me or my baby. She'd worry if my baby was small! This is what I have been saying from the start. 

I also told her about the hassle I'd had trying to get my antibiotics. She was horrified that that pharmacist had not called my GP and got an alternative brand named, then she had my wee tested then and there, wrote me a new prescription, and directed me to the hospitals own pharmacy. I now have my antibiotics!

She also said "We will definitely induce you at 38 weeks - ish!" Which was about as clear as mud, but I'm hoping that by the end of week 38 (9th Aug) I will have my baby in my arms!!!!

With that in mind I have been baby shopping! I have some new cloth nappy things (some of our old stuff was getting worn out since it's been used on 3 kids already), new slings, and my Raspberry Leaf Tea and Evening Primrose Oil to try and get my body ready for this induction. 

Here's what Fertility Friend says about baby this week:
Your baby's total length is 18.9 inches (42cm) and she is perfectly formed! She measures about 11.6 inches (29cm) from crown to rump. All she has to do is fill out more. Your baby weighs almost 4 pounds (1800g). If she were to be born now, she would still need to be incubated as she has insufficient fat stores to keep it warm.
Your baby can distinguish between light and dark.
Your baby can hear the outside world quite well now, and can also hear the sounds of your heartbeat, your digestion and the blood rushing in the umbilical cord. The pitch of women's voices are in the range babies are most able to hear over all the internal background noise. Your baby is already familiar with your voice and will be able to recognize it after birth. 
Nesting is in full swing and new baby purchases are arriving almost daily!!!

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

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
