Baby Q

Last night we had a Baby Q to wish Kylee and Garry plus William all the very best for the coming of their little girl and Williams little sister.   It was a lovely night. They are on the countdown down, Kylee is 36+ weeks now.  No sign of her "dropping" yet, but I think she will soon, as I think she will go go early.
So....pen and paper was out yesterday, we have all written down our guess dates and weights and now wait impatiently for the arrival of our little girl.  She has a name...that will be revealed when she is born. Its S----- R---    Any guesses?? 

Weigh in was Saturday...a sts   A disappointment as I thought I had done real well.  
This coming week.....mmmmmm after last night and the over indulging I will have to work hard to redeem myself......

Birthday week

Another week down but her above ^^^^^^^ is counting them too, 5 weeks to go and it can't go fast enough. She is loving the pregnancy, loves feeling baby grow, kick, and move around but is getting so tired. Sleep pattern is erratic but she now has the advantage of napping in the afternoon now she is on maternity leave and William is at Kindy or daycare. 
Bubby is head down, lets hope she stays there, Kylee desperately wants a vaginal birth this time around. William was stuck breech under Kylee's ribs so was a caesar. Fingers crossed it happens for her. Her gyno says it being a former twin pregnancy so it could go anyway...but he is letting her try to go naturally. 
Having a Baby Q on the weekend as a baby shower for both of them....just a few friends over, a lot have other commitments as we left it a little late to decide on a date.

Had a busy week last week. Visitors from the USA were here and we took them on a quick tiki tour down the South West...taking in the chocolate factory, wine and liqueur tasting and some beautiful coastal scenery.
Result at weigh in showed was a 100g gone....but I was happy about that considering my week.
Hoping for a better week this week although it is my birthday week.

Back to work...

Just a quick post. Its 6.30am Sunday morning, and I have my first shift back at work today after my op. Also have some American radio friends that are touring Australia and New Zealand coming this afternoon. Hubby has "met" both of them on ham radio and has been chatting to them for a few years now. Friends who live up the road (Neville is also a ham radio operator and chats to them too and his wife ) are going up to Perth to pick them up and bringing them down here the inland way and showing them points of interest as they travel. They will be dropped off here in the late afternoon as tonight we'll have a bbq with them and Neville and his wife Margaret, and tomorrow we'll take them touring a bit further down south before taking them back to Perth via the coastal highway (so they will get to see more) as Tuesday they fly to Hobart with their tour group. Looking forward to meeting them and doing the tiki tour with them. 

Weigh in was Saturday....yay to another 800g gone. Loving the new weigh watchers plan...its just so easy, too easy to be true...but I am stoked its working!!

Right...I gotta go move...a few more things to organise. Have to pack myself a lunch so I don't veer too much off plan today and I have some chores to get done before I leave. 
As the pic above ^^^^ shows I want to keep going and stick to the plan as much as I can. Holiday of a lifetime looms and I so want to travel in comfort. 

Focus Jen, focus...

This is my new motto...and it seems to be working.
First weigh in at weight watchers on Saturday, a 1.5 loss. Wasn't sure what the scales would say even though I had a great week, but due to recovering from op I had no exercise to add to the mix. So I was thrilled with the result. Tomorrow is my first day out walking, this weekend I have felt great, very little soreness and no pain so think its time. 
Last night I indulged, had a few cookies with my jarrah hot chocolate which ate into my "slush fund" .... but thats what the extra's are for.
