Blood test results!

This afternoon I got a call from my 2nd Fav doc with my blood test results. It's the same lady I saw who originally said there was no way I could get to the clinic just yet (and not my fav doc who got me in there!)

She said my progesterone results score 15, which still means nothing to me. So I asked outright "does that mean I've ovulated or not?" And she said it wasn't likely. But I could take a preg test next week and then come in to see them. She went on to explain that the blood test is looking for a very narrow window and can be easily missed. Ideally I should have had the test on CD28 but that was the Saturday so CD30 was my first chance.

So I've done a little research and after finding dozens of comments on various forums all contradicting each other, I found someone who posted a link here: Progesterone in Pregnancy which says this:

I believe I was "mid luteal phase" when I had my last blood test. I'm not on medication yet. I think a 15 is ok.... don't you?

Tomorrow I'll call the fertility clinic and tell them.

I'll also add how much my BMI has dropped!

Oh, and my courtesy car turned up while I was at work! So that's something else I can smile about (it's HUGE!)

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
