My LOVELY Doctor!

Isn't it typical, AF showed up yesterday afternoon, and this morning was my doctors appointment to find out what had happened to it....!

Anyway, I saw my own doctor today. She's a very nice lady with 3 kids of her own. I explained that my cycles were getting longer and I thought that I probably wasn't ovulating, I reminded her about the 21 day blood I had on the 10th of Sept. She looked up the results on the computer and said "You didn't ovulate."

Begs the question "why was I told 'no further actions' then?" but I didn't push that. I need her on my side and getting arsey about that isn't going to get me any where.

She asked if I had used Clomid for all of my pregnancies and I told her no, it was only for my second. I'd had no problems with my cycles for my 1st or 3rd, but I am having the same problems now that I had when I was given Clomid. She then told me that my former doc shouldn't have given me Clomid - not because I don't need it but because these protocols had been in the place then too. Ooops! But since he was so experienced he managed to do it. She also said that I DO need Clomid and she's going to help me get it.

The hoops I need to jump through to get into the fertility clinic are:

  • Be trying for a year
  • Have all my vaccinations up to date
  • Have a 21 day blood test
  • Have a 2-5 day blood test
  • Have a chlamydia test


Well, I check the 21 day bloods box, my vaccinations are good too. I'm booked in TOMORROW for my 2-5 day bloods and chlamydia swab..... It's the trying for a year one that's the problem.

She said to me "Come back and see me for your blood test results, then book in for the end of November, and I will have forgotten with my 'terrible memory' when you said you started trying. About a year isn't it?? I'll get you on the waiting list for the fertility clinic" How awesome is that?

She did also warn me that because I'm not 35 yet, and because I already have 3 kids, I wont be a priority on the clinics list. Which is fair enough. But she said she'd push them for me.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It's almost impossible that I will get pregnant in the time scale I'd dreamed of (unless this easing of the pressure triggers something) since I would need that BFP before I can get referred to the clinic..... but right now I'm more concerned with "if" than "when"

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…
