Pheromones!

This is at risk of being a TMI post - so I'm sorry for that! Feel free to click away and come back for a safer post! Or.... you can hang around a read for a while longer.

Regulars will know that me & the hubby are planning for our 4th child, but that I am still on the pill for a while longer (think I have about 5-6 weeks left). Since I had my implant taken out I have been taking the pill but tracking my cycle and recording everything on Fertility Friend. And I have noticed something interesting about our sex life (told you it would be TMI).

I'm sure you'll understand when I say our sex life is not the 24/7 thing it used to be... nearly 12 years together and 3 kids already means that we're happy enough in our relationship to not feel unloved without sex on tap, and face it, with this many small children running about, finding opportunity while we still have energy is tricky too! But we do still HAVE a sex life... and it always seems to happen on the days I would be fertile if I wasn't on the pill. Coincidence?

Well I think not! So I've been reading up on pheromones. It seems that my poor hubby - no matter how tired he might be after a long day at work, or longer day home alone with the kids while I'm working - simply cannot resist me for about 5-8 days of my cycle. He has no idea what my cycle is. The only indication he gets is that I wear underwear as well as my PJ's for a week every so often. In fact I doubt he even notices that! (PJs are a must when you have up to 3 small boys in bed with you who are just toooo interested in what mummy has instead of a winky.)

During this time if I so much as brush past him he is practically panting! He suddenly gets the urge to do loads of housework or DIY too. A subconscious way to try to please me so I may reward him? Who knows. But I like to think so! And I'm defiantly not complaining!! Dinner cooked, washing done, kids to bed, AND some special time with my hubby?

I wish I could bottle the stuff for the rest of the month!

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
