My little guy has been unwell all week. Coughing and spluttering, he is worse at night and I lay with him in his bed giving him cuddles, helping him sleep. Of course, being so close to him, it was inevitable that I was to catch whatever he's got. I woke up this morning with a head full of cotton wool and razer blades in my throat!

So we've spent the day lounging around, watching TV. I've done some crocheting and reading and facebooking while the kids chill out with some quiet activities like drawing and watching Play School. It's nap time now and they are all still asleep. I hope we are all feeling better tomorrow because it's my birthday!!!

31 Weeks

I'm 31 weeks pregnant today. The time has just flown by, as it does I guess, when you have a 3 1/2 year old and a 2 year old to chase after. Throw in, birthdays, Christmas, moving house and before I know it, here I am. Only 9 weeks to go, although I'm suspecting maybe about 8 considering my first was born at 36+6 and my second at 38+4. I'm getting excited and nervous! :)

Life's a Prick

I'm over the finger pricks and monitoring. I tested my sugar levels first thing this morning and haven't bothered the rest of the day mainly because we were out at the beach (see previous post!). I have been watching my food intake closely and have been writing it all down as the dietitian and obstetrician will want to see.

I've had a few sweet things in the last couple of weeks and my levels have stayed under the required limit which is good (I think). I'm just over it all. I'm worrying about everything that goes in my mouth and when it goes in and how much it's going to raise my levels and just how big will this baby get? And what if it needs to go to special care when it's born because it's sugars drop so low? What if it needs a glucose drip? Will it be ok? I don't want to have to think about all of this!

Hello Autumn...err, Summer?

Technically, it's Autumn now that we're into March. It seems Summer still wants to stick around for a little while longer! Today's temperature reached 38 degrees (celcius) and it's still around 36 right now. Tomorrow is forecast to be 38. Next weekend's forecast shows similar temperatures! Being 28 weeks pregnant, I was looking forward to a cool change in the weather. I love Summer, but apparently it's been the longest (and wettest!) Summer in years. I'm a bit over it.

However, today we took advantage and once the kids were up, we got ourselves ready and headed to the beach. We grabbed some breakfast at the boat harbour first, then spent a little while enjoying the cool water, splashing with the kids and building sandcastles. We topped our morning off having ice cream.

So, I have a little Facebook page going called Where Dreams Are Made (or the URL refers to Handmade Dreams because Where Dreams Are Made wasn't available when I chose it). Not a great deal happens there, everytime I sit down to complete a project, something interrupts me and I need to put it aside. I post pictures of what I'm making or some new fabric I've bought or every now and then I'll write a post to say what I'm up to.

My intentions are to sell a few little handmade blankets on madeit. I've done a few but not as many as I would like to. So far, all my orders are custom requests from family and friends and lots of gifting so I never have anything left over for my madeit shop! I'm working on that though.

Anyway, getting to the point now....I'm a member on the Support A WAHP site and this month they have selected me to be in their poll. If I get the most votes, they will do an interview with me and put it up on their site. Very exciting. So, if you are reading this blog (I have no idea if anyone is reading....LOL) come and vote for me here
