Getting Scared!

Well with now officially less than 3 months to go (due 20th Nov) I am now officially getting scared! Not about birth but about having another baby!! I cant imagine how i will cope with 4!! But to be fair i couldnt imagine coping with 3 so im sure will be fine.

Got weighed yesterday and am 18st 7lbs, so gaining weight now, i dont think i'll be able to avoid it any longer, but im still less than when i found out (for a couple of weeks anyway!).

Latest bump pic at 27 weeks :D. Taken before 6am so excuse the tiredness clearly showing on my face!!

Do Do DO doooooo - The Final Countdown!!

99 days to go until Due Date - eek! Im 25+6 weeks pregnant. Had a midwife appointment this morning and all is well. Blood pressure still behaving so pleased about that. I am measuring 29 weeks though, so a little ahead of where i should be measuring. Midwife said nothing to worry about as last bubba was 9lb 7 and i parted with him no probs, so she reckons i'll be ok up to 10 and a half lbs!!!

Well this is a weightwatching blog - and that'd be a good result!! I got weighed this week and have gained a lb from last week, so 18 st 5lbs again (but havent stopped eating and have an uncontrollable craving for fruit cake!).

Heres the latest pic of me and my belly, taken on Sunday

OOps - Am Bad At Blogging!

I havent updated for a while. Im now 24 weeks 4 days pregnant. I got weighed today, and am 18st 4lbs. So still 4lbs lighter than when i first got pregnant! Im quiet pleased with that, i know im not gaining weight - apart from where it matters cos baby is growing well (as is my belly!)

Im still having the odd bout of sickness but i can cope with it now! Ive also been getting lots of headaches, and just really not enjoying myself at all!

Last week i ended up with swine flu so was in bed from Tues afternoon until Sat afternoon, it was not fun, had to keep myself isolated, but it seems to have paid off so far as none of the family have had it - really dont want the kids getting it! Think it may be this that has contributed to me not gaining weight, as last week the most calories i had in a day was 300! I managed without any anitvirals drugs and just paracetamol - so hopefully thats my lot now and i wont get it again! Ive had flu before and to be honest it was worse than last week, so whether i've had a mild dose or its just not as bad as the media would have us believe im not sure!

Feeling good now - although tired after a day at work - its a rarity these days to get a full day in!!
