Waiting game...

This part of the TTC Journey drives me crackers. The waiting.

Waiting for AF to finish
Waiting to ovulate
The Two Week Wait
Waiting for lines to show on a test...
Waiting for AF to show and start all over again!

Right now I'm waiting. 


AF did show up just as it was supposed to.... but only lasted less than 2 days! I'm telling myself that it's a side effect of coming off the pill and that it's only the first cycle and I shouldn't really expect anything to be "normal" just yet.

I'm waiting for "normal"


I am trying to find enjoyable ways of "wasting" this time! Yesterday I spent more time than I should have watching Twitter for #RoyalBaby updates! (massive congrats to the Royal Couple on the birth of their first baby son!)

Today - aside from writing this blog - I am spending time with my middle and youngest boys while Big Lad has his last day of school before the Summer. For the next few days I'll be planning, preparing and packing for our holidays! Time well spent and certainly not wasted!

In theory I should ovulate while we're away and staying in very close quarters with the kids (no chance of catching that little eggy this time then) and I'll be checking my BBT every morning even though we're away just to see if things are getting back in order. And then I'll be waiting again.....

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 one of thos…

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…

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
