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.

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
