Nearly 30 weeks preggers :0)

Well I had a very interesting couple of weeks I can tell you. It involved at least three visits to the hospital lol and also a car door, scan, day care, physio and more lol

Firstly I had my physio which went well and they gave me some crutches thank goodness to help take the weight off my pelvis. This took a bit of getting used to and also had to get passed the embarrassment of everyone staring at me and looking sorry for me as I must look a bit funny what with the bump sticking out too lol

The next day I had another scan and saw my little man who had put some weight on now and looked like a proper baby now instead of a skeleton or alien hehe! He kept sucking his lips which was quite sweet and was still a fidget bottom hehe!

His weight is perfect apparently but they want to keep an eye on him as the umbilical cord was behind his head. I suppose this is to make sure it does not tangle him up. I got stuck on the scan bed which happens a lot lately lol so they sent me to the day care unit in which i was offered some stronger pain relief and some quick tests to check I was ok :0)

The next day I had a lovely morning with my mum, we went for breaky mmmmm! then we went looking in the shops and ordered little man a new bed as he's been on a mattress on the floor since we moved in lol bless him. Once me and mum got home in a taxi I was holding my crutches in one hand and shutting the door with my other one when my mum shut hers at same time which meant my poor fingers got trapped in the door argh! lol I screamed like a baby hehe! and went to yank my hand out but it was actually stuck in the door lol My mum had to open the door for me and as i pulled the fingers out one of them just exploded with blood yuck! argh! it was all bent and swelled up so we asked the taxi driver to take us to A&E which he refused I cannot believe it! He said I should get an ambulance lol what for a broken finger I think not! I'd probably get told off for wasting their time lol But no he still refused to take us even though we had covered the hand up by this point. I think he was probably scared of getting blood on his seats or something.

Any how a very kind friend turned up and took us over to A&E in which we waited three hours to get seen as it must have been a day for leg and finger emergencies hehe! I got some rather strange looks as you can imagine looked quite funny with my bump, crutches and hurt hand lol

They x-rayed the fingers and to my utter shock my fingers we rent broken! NOT BROKEN! wow! It must have been a miracle as I fail to understand how they could have been shut completely in the door without being broken lol I'm glad they weren't as I wouldn't have been able to use the crutches for ages lol then where would I be hehe! I dread to think lol But hey a few days later and my hand felt much better.

Little man also was off school with chesty cough this week bless him but it's funny how kids suddenly feel much better once the afternoon comes lol

Big man working hard as usual bless him! Missed him like mad these past few weeks for some strange reason hehe! We are planning to do the birth plan and other things next week plus we are getting married in three weeks argh! so much to do lol. We only having a little one this year then having bigger blessing next year when things have calmed down but we are very excited to be finally getting married. wahoo!

Bye for now! :0)

It's been nearly a month!

Hi there! 28 weeks pregnant tomorrow! wahoo!

I have just realised it has been nearly a month since I last wrote a post on here. This has been partly due to the Easter Holidays and having little man at home for two weeks but also due to some problems with the pregnancy. The baby is doing great at the moment and is still very active kicking around in there but my body has taken a bit of a bashing as I am suffering with SPD (sound like one of the SPD power rangers as little man has told me lol) Symphasis Pubis dysfunction and Sciatica on top of that (ouch!)

It seems to be getting worse as the days go by but I refuse to let it put a downer on me as all in all I feel quite alright within my mind etc...(except the short temper lol) Bedtimes are bit of a nightmare as I get stuck if I role on to my back or try to get up without doing it the right way. My other half when he is at home and not at work has to basically lift me up and turn me as my legs completely stop working and you can here the bones in my lower back and pelvis grinding ouch! lol It also feels like someone has kicked me in the front area as it feels very bruised. I also get stuck if i sit back on the sofa, sit for to long or if I stand for too long my legs start to give way.

Not much going for my body at the moment eh? lol I must say that I am not the thinnest of people and I do carry some weight without the baby being there but seeing as I cannot walk very far at the moment does not look like I have much chance of loosing any lol

Apart from this though I have had the pleasure of having little man at home recently for the Easter hols and I really missed him when he went back to school lol (I know I hear the "she must be mad!" statements lol)

Other half has become increasingly lovable the last couple of weeks, giving me lots of cuddles and trying so hard to be patient with me when I'm moaning about something silly such as "why can't boy's just put the toilet seat down" lol

I seem to have the knack of moaning greatly about anything and everything lately and only realising what I am saying about a day later lol I don't mean to moan but everything just seems to annoy me lately lol

I also have this tendency to forget things like names, simple words and even forgot to give little man his medication the other day and that is not like me at all! I felt a right useless thing then lol

Some people have said that it's due to the pregnancy and I have to agree with those who say that you must lose brain cells during pregnancy because mine have definitely decreased lol

Any way since I did say I would write back every other day when I started this blog I feel it necessary to change that plan to perhaps once a week as who knows what's going to happen between now and the next post hehe!

Having another scan this week plus my first session of physio. Also little man has another assessment for his suspected autism and he is doing his SATS this week bless him. (Cant help but feel he is just too young for all the work he has to do) but hey! can't change the school system single hand idly lol

Bye for now! :0)

Hi everyone!
Had my 3rd scan yesterday! :0) It's still a boy! lol
They had to check the heart and face as they could not see it well the last time. It took them an hour to get it and also in between this they made me eat chocolate to get the baby to move into another position which to be quite fair I wasn't to happy about the idea of him moving anymore that day as the little boxer had been keeping me up all night punching away lol 3am I last looked at the clock lol

Anyhow he looked sweet and the pics we got were fantastic (got 4 because two different people scanned me in the end hehe!)

Here are some of the pics!

You can even see part of his brain on the first couple! Amazing!

This is my bump at 24 weeks old!

My friend who loves designing things made this pic for me as I kept talking about the little bump being such a boxer! I thought this was hilarious!

Thanks Dean!
Anyhow very excited now and the baby's nursery is filling up fast already lol Think I might need to invest in another wardrobe for him but seeing as the room is quite small I'm not sure where I would put it lol
My little man found out he's got into the Junior school he wanted so he's really excited and keeps going on about it bless him! Keep telling him he's got so much to happen before he goes but he seems to think it's next week i'm sure lol
Looking forward to all the Easter events coming up and spending time with little man for two whole weeks wahoo!

I'm Back! :0)

Hi there! Have not posted for a week as had to have a rest from all the work I've been doing and had some early nights too as been very worn out from the pregnancy and also chilled out by my fave therapeutic activity of designing.

I designed some art work for the baby nursery as times are hard hehe! and thought it could save some pennies on the decor hehe! Had a great time doing it and little man even helped! Here are some of the pics!

Think they look alright and I have also done some jungle ones for the other wall which have not taken a picture of yet.
Looking forward to my next scan (3rd one!) on Thurs as will get another piccy hopefully and me and the other half decided on a boys name at last but will keep it to our selves for as long as we can hehe!
Planning lots of things to do with little man during Easter hols next week! There so much on I don't know if I will be able to keep up lol
Well that's it for now as it's getting late and the bump is kicking like mad for me to lay down lol
Night night! :0)

A mix of double glazing, scary dentist etc...

I awoke this morning with another of my raging tooth aches. What with being preggers paracetamol does not do the trick so was left fearing another dental fright at the emergency service coming my way! Have been trying to get a dentist for quite some time and am on a waiting list at the moment.

Last week I visited the emergency dentist at QEQM which without putting anyone off a very scary experience. Apart from the pain I experienced the rudeness of the dentist made me upset what with the pregnancy hormones and adrenaline from the numbing injection! He moaned at me for not having a dentist when I am 5months pregnant. I felt like the most irresponsible mother ever grrr! Could still feel the pain even whilst I had to wait in the waiting room whilst they saw three more people and I thought I was going to swallow my tongue where I could not feel it. lol Obviously you can't actually swallow your tongue like that but that did not stop me panicking and when I started to cry the nurse came up to me and asked me if it was the hormones argh! couldn't believe it! Then she passed me a huge box of tissues and said I might need them for a while lol

Anyhow he called me back in then he tried to clean up my broken tooth which as he started still felt pain full and had to stop so he just gave me a temporary filling and some antibiotics.

After 7 days of taking the antibiotics the pain was still there so this morning after phoning around managed to get an appointment at the Newington dental practice which thankfully went much better and she managed to do more with the tooth this time. Any how need root canal treatment which will have to wait now till the bump has been delivered lol Looks like I need to get the paracetamol in stock lol (Midwife has said this won't cause baby problems!)

In between all this the double glazing people turned up today and started the windows Wahoo!

Was sitting doing work on the comp and saw bits of windows flying past me outside lol Had to wear my dressing gown too because the front door was open all day and the window was obviously open all day lol Good job they finished before the rain came hehe!

Little man was picked up by Grandma and Grandpa after school so it meant I got a rest after the dental scare plus did not have to do the tea wahoo! lol
