Testing day!!!



Well..... That's a negative pregnancy test. No doubt about it. Not even a hint of a line, not even an evap.

I'm supposedly 17dpo, and on cycle day 32. I do sometimes have 32 day cycles but even if that we're the case I should have had a visit from Aunt Flow by now and she's a no-show.

So now I am wondering (but not worrying) about my cycle... Maybe it simply isn't sorted yet. It did take a very long time after having my first. In the end I was given clomid to get my cycles working again. And it worked! We got Tom as a result.

I've taked it over with Hubby and this is our plan. If AF still has not turned up after the weekend I am going to get myself an appointment with the doctor and see if they will give me clomid again. Hopefully, because I have had it before, it will just be a formality. I'd prefer not to have to have all the scans again to rule out PCOS and other issues. I was given the all clear last time and I'm not suffering any of the symptoms. But if I do then so be it.

I'm aware of how this sounds "one cycle and she's looking for clomid already?!" Please don't judge me for it. I probably do want it for all the wrong reasons, like being impatient, hoping it will regulate my cycle accurately enough to help us time Baby Dancing for that dreamed of daughter, trying so damn hard to get pregnant during that perfect window... But who could blame me? This is going to be my last baby. Why shouldn't I try to conceive a daughter when I have three sons? Why shouldn't I aim to have her at a time that would suit our family best? I've said so many times before than a son born after our ideal time scale will be loved every bit as much and I mean that. But I still want to TRY for that dream. And sitting on my butt just hoping when my cycles aren't even back to normal seems a bit stupid. Especially when I COULD do something about it.

In the mean time I have taken advice about me having maybe had a second attempt as OV on CD25 and adjusted my chart accordingly. New testing day Aug 26th (which is also my birthday) although my chances are slim, timing wise.

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
