Monopoly Board : Week 35

I must admit I'm feeling quite pleased with myself this week lol, last week I set myself the goal of finishing upto Liverpool Street Station at a minimum, I thought I might stuggle to meet this as it was my daughter's 2nd birthday on Saturday so put in some stitching whenever I could, which resulted in my not only meeting my goal but also going further and I managed to finish right up to GO, so now all four sides are complete and the only thing left to do is the middle of the board so I'll be all finished soon lol

The board as it is at the moment:

Baby Update 21/01/2010

Hi all just thought i'd give a quick update on baby :)

After the last scan i was told they wanted me back in 2wks to monitor her growth, which we had today and our baby girl looked perfect :)

Consultant scanning me had a student with her which didnt bother me as they all got to learn somewhere and plus i got more time to watch my lil girl as she paused to explain things to him lol

Chloe is growly in proportion to what she should be so do worrys there, consultant said that she is perfectly healthy only 'issue' is her short arms and legs which arent really an issue she's just going to take after mummy lol nothing wrong with that

She did ask if we wanted to be refered to another hosp to look into why the short legs etc but we declined as as i've said before i've got short legs and arms myself and have never had a problem and in every other way our daughter is perfect so don't see the need, if there was an issue that affected her health of course we'd look into it but she's just going to be a shortie like mummy hehe :)

Also on the plus size consultant gave us a lovely pic of Chloe for free :) so cute looks like shes blowing bubbles lol

Follow up from last post

First off would lke to thank everyone for their comments they all made me smile :)

Wednesday evening i was getting very nervous i felt everything would be ok but silly me couldnt help overthinking things and getting worried about all the what if's ...

Scan was meant for 11.30am but was being scanned by a consultant and they got called away for an emergency so had to wait for her to come back, finally got scanned at 1pm and she confirmed that baby's legs (and arms app) are a little on the small side but she was happy to rule out downs which was a huge relief, she said from looking at me she felt that baby was just going to take after me :) and be ickle (best things come in small packages as mum always says :))

But she also said it could be a case of slow growth or infection and just to rule them out she's booked me in for another scan in 2wks to check growth and afterwards im to see the consultant to have a blood test to rule out infection

Also with Chloe being ickle :) with my size ive got more of a chance of having her naturally which is great news too :)

Baby Update :-)

hey everyone had my 20wk scan today and we're having another girl, lady scanning me had a little trouble looking as she was very active but she said she happy its another girl and from we saw watching we are too :) so Chloe Marie is on her way

Scan went well everything appears to be as it should be :) one area of concern tho is her leg length is a little shorter then expected which she said could be a marker for downs or simply that shes going to be a shortie like me lol (i'm around 4"8), but as all other signs for downs came bk clear she said more likely just a shortie but they dont want to dismiss it jus incase so got to discuss it with my consultant on thurs and go from what they say then but will prob be offered a amino and since leaving the hospital ive had phone booking me in for a more detailed scan on thursday morning so that when i see consultant thursday afternoon he will have all info poss to discuss it properly but all in all seems ok im convinced shes just gona be a shortie but im glad they making sure
