10 things to be Thankful For!

I saw this over on a bloggy friends post (check it out and link up) and thought it was a lovely idea to keep my mood up with the whole TTC thing. So here we go, in no particular order, 10 things to be thankful for:


  1. There is a good chance that we know what our Secondary Fertility is caused by, and fixing it should be simple once we get to the clinic
  2. Our doctor is very understanding and is really trying hard to help us get to the clinic
  3. According to my blood tests, my body is TRYING to do what it should
  4. Hubby's sample has come back normal!
  5. This cycle seems more normal than the previous few - still long but a more normal pattern (thanks to Angus Castus supplements?)
  6. I got Crosshairs on my Fertility Friend chart this week (suggesting I might have actually ovulated this cycle) they moved today and gave me a score of "low" instead of "good", but a score is still a score!
  7. Even after 12 years together we're still into each other enough to enjoy this whole baby making process (we both come from divorced homes, this is a big deal!)
  8. I have this blog and the lovely communities on my favourite forum and G+ group to help me work through the massive changes in moods and emotions that go along with TTC
  9. There's a chance we might not have this fourth baby.... but we have 3 brilliant sons already and I am very very thankful for them
  10. My Hubby. Who tolerates a lot. It was his idea to have 4 kids in the first place, but without him to support and love me, and make me laugh when I'm feeling at my lowest, I just couldn't cope.

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
