#6 week 29

Feeling HUGE!!!  My iron is low and so have to take 2 tablets a day to increase it.  We have all had colds/coughs this week and so my energy is fairly low… and I can’t have caffeine :-(.  Baby moving heaps, and Derek can feel it.  Doesn’t want to move for the kids though.  Gubbs has been the only one to feel a good squirm!

Beginning to plan for the birth, cooking extra meals (or planning to cook them!) and sorting through kids wardrobes to get rid of excess clothes.  Have had to put away sizes 1, 3 and 4 now.  Jordy and Gubbs are both in size 5, Zi in size 6 and Eli size 7!  Zeek is size 2.  Weighed Jordy and Gubbs last week and they both weighed 21 kgs!  It’s like having twins!

Zeek has settled down a lot now.  He loves the new trike we got for him and rides it around saying ‘go, go, go!!’.  He has stopped napping during the day and so goes to bed around 7pm – yay!!  He gets cranky at about 5pm, but I give him dinner early and then put the obsessive Wiggies on for him and this tends to keep me sane!

Can’t believe that we have an 8, 61/2, 5 and 4 year old now.  It only seems like yesterday that we had 4 under four.  I am really enjoying the gaps we have had between Jordy and Zeek and this one.  Three under 4 1/2 is so much nicer :-).  Can’t believe Zi was 2 1/2 when Jordy was born and that Zeek will be the same age (with no other younger sibling!) when this little one arrives.  I now understand why people would say ‘how do you do it?’ and ‘your hands are full aren’t they?’.  Even though those statements still drive me mad!!

I am really looking forward to having a newborn in the house again, and to breastfeeding.  Good thing there’s only 11 weeks to go!!
