Family planning appointment

After stressing about getting hassle for wanting my implant taken out I can say that my appointment went really well! The woman I saw was very nice and was fine with me wanting it out so we can have another baby.

I'm booked in for April 29th, a good while earlier than I expected. And I have 3m of the pill to take, starting a week before the implant is removed. Sadly it's the pop pill not the combi pill so I can't use it to regulate my cycle. But the combi pill would dry up my milk and since Georgie is still feeding from me I don't want that. Having milk for George is more important, and there is always the chance that he will self ween like Tom did shortly after his first birthday, or that I'll still get pregnant even if he is feeding because he's down to just 2-3 feeds a day.

Time will tell. I'd like to get to grips with my cycle but its not worth forcing Georgie to ween.

Planning a 2014 baby!

Mmmmm..... I want another baby! Seriously. I must be crazy. But we want 4 kids, I want to have my last one before I'm too far in the wrong size of 35, we want the same sort of age gap between them all, and the same academic year gap between them too.

That last one is a new one. But a fairly important goal for us! A baby born after the 1st Sept has to wait for the next school year, and that means I can't realistically go back to work full time for an extra year. And with 4 kids to pay for that HAS to be a consideration (although if we miss the deadline we'll cope, obviously). Bare in mind that there will be 1 school year between Jack & Tom, and another between Tom & George, it would be good for us to have the same between Georgie and the youngest.

I still have this implant in though (although for this last month I'm not sure it's working very well, after my massive hormonal broody burst the other week, I've had spotting today, eep!) I'm trying to hav…

Jack's 5th Birthday

Half a decade!! How??

Aww, and he's so grown up so much of the time too. He's had a good birthday. First time he's been at school for one, and a Thursday too so we had Luke over in the morning before school. Trying to keep him calm and willing to actually GO to school was our primary goal :D

He got to open 3 presents before school, one from Mummy & Daddy, and one from each of his brothers. We explained he could have the rest after school when he had time to play with them. He was ok with that too! Very grown up!

After school we went for his birthday tea to Pizza Hut, then home for presents and cake. He loved his presents (mostly Skylanders related) and scoffed his cake before finally burning out half an hour after his normal bedtime.

He has his big party on Saturday, and Grandma is bringing his bike up too (weather permitting, it's supposed to SNOW!)

Hope he remembers his 5th birthday. Hope it's a good memory.

Love you Big Lad! Xxxx

Broody

Shocking isn't it....

But you see the thing is Jack's going to be 5 in a few days. Hardly a baby any more. And Tom will be starting proper nursery in September, and George will be 1 next month and is starting to lose interest in me feeding him - I think it's that last one that's the kicker...

My body is screaming out to get pregnant again. Even though I am still using my implant, and still breast feeding, I just want to get pregnant. Makes me wonder if  that implant is still working to be honest. Every free moment I have I'm planning trying to conceive, pregnancy, the birth... dreaming of the future.

((How will I cope when we have our 4 kids and I'm not allowed an more?? Mmm, worry about that then.))

I'm not helping my self though. I've started back on the pregnancy forums, and gazing stupidly at my fertility charts which aren't even working right now because I have the implant in. I keep reaching for the phone to book an appointment to have it take…

Work stuff

I've been busy since I went back to work 2 months ago. And I am actually really enjoying myself! My new roles include the redesign of the website (Yay!!!) and Credit Control. I've never really fancied credit control. I'm not one for being on the phone if I can help it, and I'm not good at confrontation (unless I'm drunk or seriously peeved). Last time I was put in credit control I was expecting Jack so I was a lot younger, softer, hormonal, and just plain scared.

Now.... now I have 3 kids I need to be strict with and take no bull from. Now I understand the importance of getting the money owed back to the company. And I accept that if I am not proving myself to be an asset to the company I'm likely to find my hours reduced or cut altogether! ("current economic climate" and all that)

So! Credit Control it is! And I'm enjoying it. I'm actually getting results too. Debts going back almost 2yrs are being sorted and paid. I feel like I am making sig…

Feb Half Term

I'm a little late posting (again) but we did have fun :)

I wish we could have done more with the kids but we've both been working so we did what we could. We went to the smaller local park with some friends, we went to Happy Mount Park (just me and the boys this time), we did some baking of biscuits and home made pizza, and we played Skylanders together. So ok, it's not Blackpool, or Dalton Wildlife Park this holiday, but it was still alright.

The next school holidays will be better, with a good day out to plan for Jack's Birthday Treat, and more days with me and Mark off work to fit stuff in.
