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!)

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
