CD3 test results in!

I was back at the doctors again today to get my blood test results back. They're "normal" which suggests that I am at least producing the right hormones at the start of my cycle. And yet I'm not showing any signs of ovulating yet. If my cycle was "normal" I would have had a temp rise earlier this week, but I haven't. I'm showing no signs of ov at all.

Lovely Doc is trying to push for the clinic for us. Just one more test.... His test. I love how the doc explained this too me! She handed me a tube for Hubby to fill and explained that it needs to "all go in the tube, quantity counts!" and that we need to get it to the lab at the hospital within the hour of the sample being produced - the earlier the better. And too keep it warm. "Don't shove it in your handbag, it needs to be in your hand or pocket, or better still, tuck it inside your bra!"

The look on my poor Hubby's face when I told him. He thought I we had to get his sample to the hospital within an hour of me telling him! He wobbled under the pressure! But no, it's a job for Tuesday. And - as I suspected would be the case - I'll be the one delivering it to the hospital while we waits in the car!

He's quite miffed at being asked to do this test at all! Surely his ability to provide me with Good Stuff has been proven with the 3 kids we already have (and yes, they are all his) and I did make this point to the Doc on his behalf. But it seems that this is one of the compulsory hoops to be jumped through. It could be (she says) that he's been borderline all along and that we've been lucky to get these three. But she doubts that is the case. It's  formality.

It's so much harder for him to do this then say the two blood tests, cervical swab, and internal scan I've had to endure so far. Poor fella (LMAO)

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…
