Better Days :)

Things are looking up, and I am a much happier bunny than I was in my last post. Amazing what a good night asleep can do for the soul.

Friday was a good day. We finally heard from the courtesy car people and things are starting to move, all be it slowly. This is taking some of my stress away, although we're still not 100% sure we'll get to see family this Christmas (which would be awful).

I called my docs for the blood test results. The woman on reception read out the cryptic notes on my results and then asked if I had understood a word of it, because she hadn't. We laughed about it and arranged for one of my two lady doctors who have been dealing with my secondary infertility to give me a call on Monday and explain. Then I can call the Fertility Clinic on Tuesday and tell them.

Why do doctors and such feel the need to speak in code when it's the poor reception staff and us commoners on the street that need to understand them too? At least my nice doctors will speak to me in a language I'll understand. Even if I do have to wait or Monday.

Although I likely wont need to result for myself on Monday, because I'll either get AF - which says to me I didn't ov because we did the deed with really good timing - or I wont and I might get a BFP!

The later is unlikely. AF is due today.

I have been studying my charts. On my two pregnant charts I had temp dips on dpo 9 and 10 respectively. This cycle I had a dip at 9 dpo (yesterday) which gets me excited! Today is 10 dpo and I have had a rise like on my preg charts, but it's not a very high one. In fact that pattern more closely resembles the rise-dip-low rise pattern I have for AF about to start. So from that I am expecting AF within the next 24 hours. I'm thinking I'll prob get spotting by bedtime. But if she doesn't show by tomorrow bedtime I'll be finding it very hard to stay away from those pee sticks before my testing day of the 12th!

Keep telling myself there is NO POINT taking a preg test before 4-7 days after my dip because even if I was preg it wouldn't show.

Off to find myself something to distract myself with.... because I'm staring at my chart like it'll change anything!

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…
