Fa la la la la hey nonny no

Just a few pics from a concert we had at Church recently on St James' Day (which is on 25 July, but the concert was on the 27th).

I sang in a small group that sang a few madrigals. And managed not to sing too many wrong notes. Not bad, when you're the only person singing your part. I like to think I am more of a team singer than a soloist, so this was a bit of a challenge for me.
Notice I'm now into the preggy robe. My old one was getting a bit tight!

warning! semi naked fish!! :edited

This is what an overweight chick looks like at 6 months pregnant. Not the perfect rugby ball out the front like you get with skinny chicks, but pretty amazing all the same.

Just got back from my first Birth Ed class. The other people seem pretty nice and normal. For now anyway. Bet that's what they are saying about me - little do they know...


Had another scan today. The midwife was worried that the baby was breech and a footling at that (that means is basically standing up, when it should be curled up and upside down about now).

The scan today showed that the baby is now a little more curled up and is now transverse (lying sideways). I guess that's better than breech! Plenty of time for it to turn anyway. Panic over.

Had a very high blood pressure when I went to the midwife, and high sugar levels. So I had to have a blood test to rule out toxaemia/pre-eclampsia , and I have to have another test to make sure I don't have gestational diabetes. Oh joy. I have really cruised through so far, so it's about time I had a few blips. Updates to come.

out of the office

I'm away in Masterton at Choir School; back Saturday night.

... not that you'd notice, as I've been really slack at updating recently.
