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"

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
