Thoughts on feeding while ttc

Ooooh! 2 weeks today till the implant comes out! 1 week till I start the pill! Wont deny I have a knot of nervous tension in my tummy thinking about it! It was Georgie's birthday last week and his party on the weekend. My littlest one is growing up, although he is still being breastfed and showing no signs of giving up. I can't help but wonder what difference that's going to make to our TTC. I'm not not wanting to wean him JUST so we can have another baby, he will likely self wean as my milk changes if/when I get on in my pregnancy - and if not I'll try to tandem feed. I enjoy feeding him, he enjoys me feeding him, and neither of us are ready to stop just yet. I'm hoping that the surge I should get from coming off the implant and pill will out weigh the effect of him still feeding. It is only 2-3 times a day after all, and other women get pregnant while BF (a friend from the school run still BF her 2yo and is expecting now). I know other people wean their babies to TTC. It was in the back of my mind when I stopped offering Tom his BF that we wanted to try for George, but he was ready to stop. He only fed from me because I offered, he didn't ask, so a week after his 1st birthday he'd stopped bf from choice (and BANG I was up the duff VERY soon after). George still asks. Because we're both still happy to continue I don't want to have to stop! If it does have an affect on my fertility I'm not sure which way I'll lean......

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…

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…

I hate the female body... sometimes (MEN, DON'T READ)

It's not so much that I hate it, as I hate what it does sometimes.

I am sure you all already know that I am off the Depo Jab now and am back on the pill after 8 years. it's microgynon 30 for those of you who might want to know. I was really worried about what my body was going to do to me with the switch over. I have heared all kinds of horror stories about coming off the Depo Jab (good and bad stories here) like having 6 month long heavy periods and all kinds of nastyness. I hate having periods. That's one of the reason why I started the Depo in the first place!

When I think about it, the are plently of things I hate my body doing, like sneezing, hiccuping, and basically anything that it desides to do all on it's own that disrupt what ever I'm doing. Sneezing it a pet hate of mine as I swear it's SO dangerous to sneeze when your driving! Your eyes close and your body spazems... it's can be safe!

So the thought of having to spend 1 week out of 4 either stuffin…
