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.

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
