Induction Date!!!

Oooh yeah! I got my induction date!

Mark it in your diary folks, I'm booked in for August 5th 2014!

Today went really well all round really. I had been dreading it since I had the kids last day at school & nursery to deal with, Tom to take to the Clinic with me, and the prospect of no nearby parking and awful heat to contend with.

But Tom behaved, we found a good parking space, and escaped the GD Clinic in time to collect Jack & Georgie.

Tom liked seeing the Baby on the "TV", although Bean looks nothing like a baby on the scan at this stage, far too big for a good profile shot etc. But he understood that what we was seeing was bits of baby's body, heart beat etc.

Just for the record, the estimated weight of baby is currently 4333g or 9 1/2 lb. so I'm now saying Bean will be a shade over 10lb at birth! Any one else fancy taking a guess??

So... Assuming that I don't spontaneously go into labour BEFORE the 5th, I'll be taking the kids down to my Mum's on the Sunday afternoon, getting them settled and into bed for the night before coming home. Having a very quiet and relaxed Monday. Then driving up to the hospital on Tuesday morning and hoping they don't get a "rush on" like when I had Georgie. Me and Hubby are going to discuss whether he comes with me or not, as we know from experience that inductions can take a long time. We'd both prefer to not both be sat there waiting because he fidgets when he's bored and that drives me insane! And I feel like I can't nap because then he'll have no company so I get tired and grouchy which drives him nuts. It's better if I'm there on my own, reading my book and chilling, and then call him when stuff starts to happen. He'll probably come with me while I get settled (and help carry my bags, lol) and then go until I call him. This way we can both relax and reserve our strength for the actual labour. The hospital is less than 10 mins from home in a taxi, and probably less from Hubby's work. Almost as quick to walk!

Eek! Soooo excited now!

I've got work tomorrow, and up to 3 days in next week to keep my mind occupied. The kids are home now and the weather promises to stay good so I can foresee trips to parks (where I can sit in the shade and watch them play). Good times ahead!

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!
