Pounds lost - 1.5
Inches lost - 5
Poorly babies - 0

What an exciting week! To celebrate feeling better Pearl decided to perform an acrobatic display of rolls across my living room and scare me half to death! I'm sure I left you on your play mat 10 seconds ago but you are now halfway into the hallway??!! Scary! You have no such trouble finding me as this week as I have succumbed to the dreaded post-pregnancy hair loss! I got to 19 weeks and thought I had managed to avoid this nightmare! Hansel and Gretel left a trail of breadcrumbs to trace their steps I leave a follicle footpath behind me!

Spring finally sprung this week (well for a couple of days anyway!) so I managed to get into the garden and start planting my veg patch. We are lucky enough to have a large garden and had a raised planting area built last year. With pregnancy craziness and getting the house sorted I neglected my patch last year but I'm determined this will be a successful maternity leave project and something Pearl and I can enjoy in years to come.

Another success of the MAMA program has been breaking my supermarket habit! The village where I live has a large superstore that is difficult to avoid. My weekly shop quickly turned into twice weekly with a few £30 shopping baskets thrown in for good measure (why is it impossible to just go in and buy milk??!!) This week I can proudly say I have not set foot into a supermarket! All my shopping was done with a quick trip to the local butcher, a visit to the fruit and veg market and milk and eggs from a farm shop! Certainly when I'm back at work the convenience of the supermarket will come calling but for now I'm sticking to supporting these local shops, saving money and enjoying extra freshness in my food!

Can't believe we are into the final week. I cannot wait to see what my final results will be and whether or not I manage to wear the dreaded belly top!!!
