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)

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

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
