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.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
