Blood test results!

I've been so crazy busy at work today, with making training videos and helping to pack for our office move next week, on top of my own jobs, that I almost forgot about ringing up for my blood test results! It's only when my friend in sales asked if I was pregnant yet (she knows we're trying, not calling me fat!) I dashed off to make the call, hastily explaining about the blood test on the way.

The system is you call and the receptionist gives you the results, but because of confidentially they don't get all the nitty gritty. This makes understanding your results a little tricky! She read them out to me: "no further action needed". And that's it, that's all she had! I quizzed her a bit, hoping she might be able to shed some light on it if she knew what the test was, but she was none the wiser. She offered to book me an appointment with the doctor, but that was all she could do. Such a silly system!     I appreciate that it's not practical to have doctors take these calls, and that appointments aren't always necessary for results, and that its not down to a receptionist to know all the medical ins and outs..... But a vague answer is just so frustrating!

I opted not to book an appointment just yet. "No further action" suggests that my blood tests came up as normal for a 21 day progesterone test. On that basis I shall assume that I have ovulated this cycle and that at some point in the next couple of weeks I'll either get a visit from Aunt Flow or (eek!) I'll get a BFP. If not..... Well I can always call up and get an appointment.

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
