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"

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
