Arthur day

Well saturday was little Arthur day, the day he should have been one. 26th September will always be a special day to me, but it wasn't so much tinged with sadness this year. I still think about Arthur often, but at the same time if he was here that means Noah wouldn't be so it is a difficult one in my mind. I love Noah so much, but I'll always remember that you were my first baby Arthur, even if you never made it past the first trimester.

A couple of holiday snaps

I did say I'd post a couple from our holiday so here you go

The first one is him paddling in the sea, he loved it!

Joy of Joys

Today is smear test day, which I would not be looking forward to anyway. However I have several added bonuses.

I can see how this is going to go. They won't realise that I have 2 cervixes, so I will have to explain. Yes you would think that they would know and it would all be on record but last time I was there they offered me a coil. I then had to turn round and say er thanks love but that wouldn't work as I have 2 uterii. Bit red faced on their part. Even when I was pregnant it wasn't on my hand held notes and I had to tell people. Anyway there is no point them just doing one cervix, so I will have to tell them. Then I will have to lie there while they poke around trying to find the second one, which isn't in an obvious place. Joy.

And added to the joy of extra prodding will be the discomfort. Who would of thought yours bits would be sore after a c section? I didn't, given they hadn't pushed a baby through them and all those contractions didn't get me to more then 1cm dilated I'd have thought that they would have felt normal, but no unfortunately not.

This is clearly going to be a fun day.

Note to self

Please check that you aren't just sitting with your nipple hanging out when you have friends round.

You learn something new every day

Things I have learnt while I was in France

*Noah loves being in the sea
*Hubby is not very good at applying suncream evenly, I have a small red patch on my back to prove it
*Disposable nappies may smell less of wee but do not contain poo anywhere near as well as reusables
*That hearing 2 words can cost you £130 'strong gales' at which point I booked a plane ticket.
*You can get tropical storms in the English channel
*That like me Noah likes flying but he doesn't dislike ferries quite as much as me
*French beds are a lot smaller then English beds
*Driving on the wrong side of the road is a lot easier then I thought

So we are home again and happy to be so, although I had a really lovely holiday, it is nice to be back.
