8-DPO and tapping my foot

According to Fertility Friend I am now 8dpo (days past ovulation) so that puts me half way through my two week wait.

It's impossible for me to not symptom spot and the chances that I have managed to get a bit of a bug off the kids is driving me crackers. I'm tired and sickly. They've been moody and off their food so I think maybe we are all just a little off colour. These summer holidays are taking it out of us all I think.

But even knowing that we're just a bit ill... there's still that little niggle that maybe... just maybe... We've caught already! (Shut up, silly girl!)

No point getting myself all stressy about it!

Tomorrow we fly to FRANCE! Just for a few days. We're going to stay with my Dad for bit. AF is due to pay a visit around Tuesday (give or take a day) and my official Testing Day isn't until a week from Saturday. I'm of two minds whether to pack a couple of my cheapo pregnancy tests as well as all my femme hygiene stuff. I probably will pack them and then not need them.

The sensible thing to do would be NOT take them!  Then I can't test too early. But I'm not always sensible when I comes to peeing on testing strips!!!

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
