21 Day Bloods (again, on CD30!)

Today I marched in to town and saw the nurse who took some more blood for another 21 day progesterone test. This one is actually on cycle day 30 since my cycles are so long. The Fertility Clinic are reasonably sure tht I am not ovulating, but said that my previous CD21 Day test would have shown negaive regardless as I seem to be at least trying to ovukate atound CD25. Makes sense!

The ideal day would have been CD28, but that was Saturday and (aside from having my car wrecked) the surgery is closed so I couldn't have it done then. Friday was too soon. So it had to be today.

I was supposed to be at work today, but with the whole car/garage/insurance mess, and the appointment being at 12 noon, and having no transport, my boss agreed to me having the day off. The walk will have done me good though (3 WW points) and certainly got my blood pumping and easy to take - nomally my body doesn't like giving any blood up at all!

I can call for my results at the end of the week, but I'm certain they'll be negative. My temps are all wrong for ovulation this cycle with hardly any increase and then staying pretty flat. Shame really, because we times our baby-dancing really well this month! If a little eggie had popped out we'd have been sure to catch it. I'll know for certain before Christmas. Testing day is 12th Dec but Santa wont be bringing what I really want for Christmas this year. Then again, and VW Van carrying a positive pregnancy test announcing a baby girl is something of a big ask!

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
