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.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
