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.

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 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

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…
