"1 month to due date" update!

Time is marching!


  • It's one month to my due date!
  • Three weeks OR LESS until my (probable) induction!
  • Two weeks from today I'll have finished work.
  • And it's just under one week until the kids finish school & nursery for the summer.

We're pretty much sorted for baby. I have washed all my neutral coloured baby clothes, and they are in baby's drawers ready to be used. Tomorrow I'm planning to wash either the coloured stuff or the cloth nappies.  I printed off my birth plan today while I was at work and it is now safely tucked away with my Green Notes.

I'm getting loads of Braxton Hicks now. I've had them a lot this pregnancy, and now they are getting that bit more intense. It's definitely just BH though - as I have to keep pointing out to Hubby who gets twitchy when I mention them.

I think I have the swollen feet sussed! Oh, don't get me wrong, they are still swelling up, but not as badly. It seems it's the way I've been sitting which has caused the problems because it's interfered with my circulation. If it sit with bended legs for any amount of time I swell up. If I keep them straight they're loads better!

Unfortunately working out how to get comfortable at night so I can sleep better hasn't been so easy to figure out. My perpetual tiredness is taking it's toll. I am becoming more and more useless! I'm half zombified at work, working at a serious go slow despite all my best efforts to get my job done. The kids are stunned to find me anywhere other than sprawled on the settee.

And I have developed a case of the Dropsies. I smashed a drinking glass this evening. It rolled off the settee when I tried to stretch out my leg (my foot was getting fat) and shattered into a billion tiny bits on the floor. Luckily Hubby was there to roll his eyes and clear it up or I would have been trapped there! Too fat to see where my feet are, let alone razor sharp shards of glass. I'll be drinking out of plastic bottles from now on!

I'm just about ready for baby to come now. I am considered "term" in 10 days time. Once I hit that milestone I'm good to go!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
