False Alarm

I'll be honest and say I am a bit gutted about this.

Dispite having no cycle in Nov, Dec, or Jan... I am not pregnant.

And, again being honest, it's probably a good thing. Mark's still not working, the house isn't ready for a 2nd baby yet, and we both still want to give 100% to Jack (we always will, but I'm sure you understand what I mean) while he's so young.

BUT... It would have been nice. And we were just starting to get our hopes up too, thinking that maybe we'd be having a little girl this time because I didn't feel physically the same as I did when I was carrying Jack.

I'd taken a test on New Years Day when I spotted I'd missed 2 cycles, and it came up neg. But so had the first test I took with Jack.

Then I missed a 3rd cycle and got my brain ticking again. Did nothing for a couple of weeks, then went and bought a 2pack. First of those came up with the faintest of faint lines... There enough for me and Mark to see it - just - but not enough to really be considered a line.

So I thought I'd give it another week, take the 2nd test and get an apointment with the doc or nurse to see what's up - pos or neg - thinking that if I wasn't expecting then SOMETHING was wrong with me!

A week went by and this monday I did the test. Another neg. So I called up the docs and got an apt for this thu.

Guess what happened 10 mins later? Natures own way of letting me know I'm NOT pregnant.

But at least I do know, and everything seems to be working as it should now. Can't help feeling a bit sad about it though.

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Bath night with these two horrors!
