There was movement at the station....

Well well well - guess whose a wriggle bum? Little Kinder Surprise is certainly making his or her presence known. He (we will call it for the moment) is having regular ballistic moments and is wiggling away in the "ol womb"

14 1/2 weeks on - feeling ok. I have days where I think "OMG I can't handle anything" to other days when I feel invincible. It's safe to say morning sickness has gone, but I am still sensetive to smells and will retch if I smell or see anything I shouldn't have. Like the dogs dinner YUUUUCK!!

One thing I am REALLY enjoying this pregnancy is the lack of fluid! I can wear my wedding rings. My face doesn't look feral and fat. That's a first for me!!
The worst thing about this pregnancy? Hmmm... I can't think of anything. Probably feeling really guilty and like a bludger when I can't face cooking or doing what I am supposed to be doing, and Daz has to come home and do it. I hate it. He understands of course, and tries to reassure me, but I still feel bad.

Before I forget - you have to see this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1k08yxu57NA

I have never cried so hard in all my life. I can't even blame the hormones. It's so good. I cried the moment I saw him and cried harder when I saw the judges pre-judging him and I laughed when I saw that awful Simon the Creep's face when he was absolutely brilliant.

Ok back to reality.

E has started receiving the dreaded discipline - he chucks temper tantrums and screams when he doesn't get his own way, or just screams in general if something doesn't please him. Which has been making my life a nightmare. Daz, bless his heart, bought me the most useful present a man could give the mother of a screaming child, industrial ear-muffs. A lady on EB suggested it, so I made the suggestion to the man. They work a treat.
E has quickly worked out that if I am wearing the muffs, I don't hear him (much) and he shuts his cake hole. He also has started being sent to his room untill his temper tantrum is over or getting a whack on the padded tush. It's time. And it's working well. He hasn't chucked a fruit loop in a few days and understands when I get cross or cranky at him for being naughty.

Mop is Mop - brilliant as usual. Her behaviour has been brilliant. It's nice to see the training we have put so much time and energy into paying off. Her pretending has taken off, finally. She wasn't too interested in pretend play untill recently. Now she is setting up shops and playing Mums and Babies with her dolls and teddies. She takes the pram outside and spends hours out there with the teddies playing some elaborate game. It's lovely.

Her funniest moment this week.
Her: "Mummy, are we having coffee with Nanny today?"
Me: "Urrghh, no, it's Tuesday and we usually have coffee on Monday."
Her: "So can we have coffee with Nanny?"
Me: "I hadn't planned on it."
Her: "Well I would like to plan on it."
So I hand her my mobile and she proceeds to talk to Nanny and organises a coffee at "BB's House" (BBs - a cafe)

Rather funny.
