Docs today.... (warning, too much info for blokes)

My body has never really sorted it self out after having Jack. Which is fine and normal for a while. But even after stopping breastfeeding in Oct/Nov things are not back to normal.

For example, I have not managed to shed any weight. If anything, I have gained weight. My periods have not comeback properly, with one Oct/Nov time and one Feb, and that's it. And no, I'm not pregnant. I tested in Jan, and again last week. And added to that I am getting hairer... on my chin, lower arms and shins. It's not an attractive look!

Knowing a few people who have PCOS I started to wonder if that's what's wrong with me. So I booked the apt with the doctor and went his morning. And he thinks it's a possibility. So he took 3 tubes of blood to do various tests including thyroid (which should come back within a day or two), and hormone levels (inc breastfeeding hormones which might still be high in my system despite stopping months ago). They'll be back next week - but I wont be here as I'm off to my Dads for the week. So I have another apt booked for the day after we get home.

It's not a massive problem.... it's treatable. And it might not even be PCOS. But it's not what I wanted to have to worry about. Especially when Jack was so easy. The thought of struggling to conceive is not a great one.

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…

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…
