Weight Gain

So this weekend, as I am 30 weeks and in the Home Straight, I thought I would jump on the ol' Wii Fit and see how much weight I have gained.

Someone with my high BMI should expect to gain up to 20lb throughout the pregnancy. I have gained 18lb. Not too bad, I think. These things are based on the average baby weight of 7.4lb too and my baby will be 9lb+.

Now, I know that if I tell the at the GD clinic on Wed that I have gained 18lb they will tut and shake their heads and use it as an excuse to tell me off, try to push me into taking Metformin and so on and so forth. But I am quite happy with it. I know I have eaten sensibly for the most part, celebrations excepted. I am also aware that things like my knickers, and other stuff that doesn't go on my belly or boobs, are getting slack not tight.

Take a look at this site here. It's Australian rather than UK but the a average baby size is the same and I can't honestly see much else being that different. If you scroll down to the bit that shows you roughly what pregnancy-weight-gain is made up of, and how much. There's around 20lb that isn't even baby. So add a 9lb+ baby to that and yeah! High BMI or not, I'm happy. Even with 8-10 weeks to go. I won't lose any sleep over going over 20lb either, because I know this baby is big. I might even get a hint of how big at this baby is at my scan, and then I can work out the true acceptable weight gain for ME.

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
