My implant is..... OUT!


I've had my implant out!!!! It's gone!!!! And it wasn't anything like as bad as I thought it was going to be. The lady who did it was very nice and let me waffle on as she removed it - my way of coping. She showed it to me afterwards! Eww! So now I have tapes over the wound to stay on for 5 days, and a bandage for 24hrs. If I loosen it, I'll bruise worse. (She had me repeat all that to make sure I'd listened and learned, lol)



So..... One step closer!

She actually squealed a little bit when she read my notes on why I was having it removed and read "planning for a baby" which makes me smile. She was less dazzled and more stunned when I said I already had 3 boys. She'd stopped at 3 saying a 2am nappy was the end point for her and babies :) I wonder if I'll ever feel like that? They say you know when you're "done" having babies. And I know I'm not. Not yet anyway. I just worry about how I'll cope knowing I can't have a 5th!

Currently the top of my arm is still blissfully numb. I hope it doesn't start to throb all hot and achy like when it went in, at stupid o'clock in the morning. And I really hope Georgie doesn't play with it while he's feeding, like he played with the implant through my skin... Oh that would be ouchie!

Pill only from here on in!  :woot:

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
