Scan Apt

What a day! My apt for the PCOS scan was 1.50pm. When I got to the hospital I went through to the women's unit and tried to check in, but the reception shutters were down with a note up saying "Lunch 1pm - 2pm"... ten mins after my apt...

A couple expecting a baby arrived at the same sort of time, with an appointment for 1.55pm, and between us we tracked down a member of staff who assured us that we could wait in the waiting room and we would be called, regardless of reception being shut.

Fair enough. And at 1.50pm a nurse (I assume) came though to find out who we were and book us in. Only my name wasn't on his list. Turns out I should be at X-Ray, not the women's unit! DOH! I didn't even know they did this kind of scan in x-ray. Women's unit made sense, being a woman's problem, and I had been there for scans carrying Jack.

Anyway, that gave me about 2 seconds to get across the hospital to the right department, and i was only a couple of mins late, although my full bladder ("Drink 1 1/2 pints of water before attending to ensure a full bladder") was starting to strain. After a bit of a wait I was taken for me scan.

The lady found one ovary, but not the other. Worrying.... And I was sent off to the loo, with instructions to squeeze out every last drop (so holding my self for AGES was pointless, GRR!) so that I could have an INTERNAL scan!

This is NOT the most pleasent thing in the world. Even if she did use a ribbed condom to cover the probe. On yourback, legs in the air, with a prob shoved up you, being twisted and proded this way and that, for what feels like an eternity!

Finally all over I'm told she has some good shots (I consider asking for a photo for the blog... but opt not to in the end. Too weird) but that I wont get my results for TWO WEEKS! And I have to make my own apt with the doc to get them!

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
