CD40! And still waiting

To say I am fed up would be an understatement. I am sulking on an epic level! I'm not a girl to cross right now as I am libel to bite off the head of anyone who even looks at me funny. I hoping that's a hormonal thing and that it will pass because I'll end up locked away in the nut house if it goes on much longer.... OK. Maybe a slight exaggeration, but I am sulking.

Today is cycle day 40! Aunt Flow is a NO SHOW and I am NOT pregnant.

Yesterday I made a call to my docs and asked if I could have a telephone appointment since my 21 day blood test seems to have suggested that I ovulated and yet here I am 20 days later with nothing to show for it either way. It took a few hours for the lovely lady on reception to call me back and say that the doc would prefer to see me in person. She made me an appointment for this Wednesday morning.

I half expected AF to show up no sooner than the appointment was booked but still nothing.

Right now I am assuming that my body tried to ovulate - hence the +OPK and blood test, but then failed to actually do it. This usually means that it tries again a week or two later, but I've had no sign that this is the case. A few folk have suggested other dates and when I've tested them out on my chart it looks plausible for pregnancy testing on CD44 - which happens to be the day of my appointment. Although I score a "low" on the likelihood to get pregnant from an ovulation on that date so I'm not building any hopes up  for that. And Aunt Flow would already be late now and the tests are still negative.

I'm going to ask again for Clomid when I see her on Wed. It's my own doctor this time (I think) and I'll use my best persuasive arguments such as "I've used it sensibly and successfully before" and HOPE HOPE HOPE she'll take pity on me.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
