My implant is due for removal on April 29th. I have the pop pill at hand to start taking a week before, if we choose to use it. The idea of going on the pill was to regulate my cycle, but because I'm feeding Georgie I can't have the combi pill, and the pop pill won't do the job.

Question is, do we bother? Answer.... Yes I think we should because we want a summer baby this time and a baby conceived in May, June or July would be too soon - as in too close to the other boys birthdays. Must remember that when my hormones kick in!!!

The flip side is Nov is our cut off date for a baby born before Sept 1st. Lets say my cycle stays the same (it won't most likely, but hey) then the cycle starting Nov 16th is our last chance. And if I'm not already pregnant I'll have to decide if we want to keep trying for a girl and miss that school deadline, or just go for it and see what we get - most likely a lad. Urgh..... I'll cross that bridge when (if) I come to it. Truth be known I'll prob be fed up of not being pregnant yet and go for it!!!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola


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
