My blood test results

This anaemia seems to be on it's way out now, thankfully. I had another good nights sleep last night, in fact I over slept and was still in the shower when the health visitor arrived! Midwife called in shortly after. They coincided, and clashed over Freddie's sticky eye needing a swab.

Was almost amusing watching two women I highly respect have a very professional non-argument in front if a patient. HV thought he needed a swab taking to check for infection, MW didn't think he did. Long story short, MW did the swab!

Other than his crusty eyes both women are happy with Freddie. He's gained a lot of weight! Last week he had dropped from 9lb 6oz to 8lb 12lb, his 6% loss. Today he's a whopping 9lb 12oz!!!

My blood test results came back as low but much better than previous, so I've been recommended to get a repeat on my iron tablets instead of changing or going for a transfusion. I can cope with that. My breathlessness has all but gone, I'm sleeping again, and I even have colour in my lips again.

Two of my sisters-in-law came to visit today as well which was lovely. We met up at the local brewers fayer (who did a better job that when we went with my MIL last time) and had lunch while the kids had their obligatory mental run-round. Freddie got snuggled for the whole day - which he loved - the bigger boys were thrilled to see their aunties, and Hubby & I enjoyed a good catch up with his sisters.

Been a good day all round!

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
