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 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
