CD 7 today...so if last month is anything to go by got 4 days or so til I O...Michael keeps asking if its baby making time yet, which is encouraging...last night I told him no not yet, but its fun time!!
Got home last night to smell the waft of a curry being cooked...wasn't as spicey in fact I didn't find it spicey at all, but it was delish...and I thought..no spices...great dog can eat the sauce after so its not wasted.....hmmmm...
This morning he had poohed in the kitchen...I cleaned it up and he poohed again in the garden and did 3 wee's...bless him.
Was on the train on the way in to work and Michael called asking if he had been to the loo..said yes..he said that Rocco had poohed in the kitchen...oops...so dog poohed 3 times in a couple of hours...no more curry for him..and I am so NOT fessing up about feeding him the curry...LOL...saving grace is that it was normal and not the trots...pooh puppy..maybe he just ate too much..he haad cat food, dog food and curry last night...so maybe his body is just not used to 3 meals.
Got caught by our neighbour as I got in yesterday and she told me that her cat A huge cat a Tonka...after tonka trunks or something had scared puppy and he ran through the cat flap to the utility room...and the cat sat just outside the cat flap so Rocco couldn't get out...his head was through it and he was barking while the giant cat just yowled at him and batted his head with his huge paw...my neighbour couldn't scare the cat off so ebded up lobbing a biscuit over the fence to lure puppy out....makes a change to Rocco being cornered rather than my Ebony...funny.
Been asked to spray the cat with water or scare him off if he comes into our garden as they don't like him winding our dog up..(Starts him off barking for England)
We're lucky to have nice neighbours.
It looks like another beautiful day here..and its Thursday so one day closer to the weekend..whoop!!!
I'm feeling very happy and content of late...even knowing the payrise letter that we get today is going to be cack doesn't dampen my mood...the sun makes me feel Wonderful...
Hope you all have a fab day.
CD 8...ever closer to the O day.
Oh thank heavens it Friday at last!!!
This week has seemed long.
Didn't want to get up this morning..no sooner had I closed my eyes it seemed, the alarm went off...sleepy girl.
Payrise was cack as expected..but at least its something...bonus is all transferred and waiting for big bills to come out in July...oh the joys of a lease hold flat...roll on when I can sell it and we can put the cash to a larger house for us..with a garage!!!!.
Getting out of here early today I hope..off to the supermarket to pick up things for the weekend and the bbq.
Was going to do fish pie tonight...but Michael text and said how about going out for dinner...oh yes...we haven't had a "date" in a while so that will be so nice.
I hope the weather stays nice...I would love to get a bit of colour from lying in the garden...feel so pasty and spotty at the mo..a bit of a tan would do wonders.
Hoping to dtd a lot this weekend...just in case I o early...you never know.
Its so sunny and lovely out at the mo..its such a waste to be in the office...ho hum...can't knock it..at least I have a job in this climate.
CD11 and hopefully I'll get my postive on my OPK...will try later on.
Got a banging headache this morning..must be a work headache as only just come on...or it could be the weather changing so quickly.
It was beautiful on the way in and now its peeing it down...blah!!!
Weekend was great though...weather held out for our BBQ and it was great fun...ended up with us all sitting round our chimneyette..or whatever its called that Michael had half inched from his parents...had to put the fire guard over it as it was spitting out hot ash..but gee it was so warm.
Have to say that I went to bed before the last person called...by 2200 I couldn't sit in the garden seats any longer..my legs just wanted to curl on the sofa.
Left Michael and his friend in the garden and before I went to bed I cleared up a bit so I didn't have to face a pigsty when I got up.
Sunday was just as nice weather wise but didn't really take advantage as I was just watching rubbish on the tv.
Cooked a fish pie for dinner and had a bit of an accident with the garlic salt..oops..so overly salty..but M still went back for seconds..so I'm getting the hang on this domestic lark.
Puppy training tonight..so we'll wear puppy out.
Was such a good weekend...spent time talking names for when we finally get the BFP...Charlie and Joesph are forerunners for a little boy..I really like Charlie.
Anyway...to the grindstone...I just wish this office was a little warmer..its like mid winter....
No O as yet..but I have little shooting pain in my left ovary..so must be soon.
Hey ho....Will just have to be patient.
How soon can the LH surge come on?
I'll try again tomorrow...I'm sure it must be soon.
Just realised...BH next Monday so 3 lie ins....whoop!!
3 days of not having to get up at 530..can't wait!!!
Have nothing planned eithr so hopefully it will just be a relaxing weekend.
Listen to me..wishing my life away again til the weekend....
CD 12...and did the dance last night to be sure we don't miss the egg..told M that we have to do it every day this week....he pretended to cry..said he felt like a piece of meat..I was using him..takes all the enjoyment out...I told him to shut up and get naked..hahaha..bless him...first time I've demanded him so there you go..hahaha.
TMI about to occur..but after we had finished I told him to lift my legs in the air..he did and then said "No wonder you don't get pregnant..its all coming out"..I laughed so hard...dozy sod...
I'm so tired tired today...M was dreaming last night and was convinced my hair was the cat..woke me up to tell me the cat was on my head and he wasn't sure he liked it..but would see if she behaved..I just ignored him..then he woke me up again telling me Ebony was on my head..I told him he was stroking my hair and the cat was on the wardrobe and that he was dreaming and to please stop waking me up...he woke then and apologised but he was dreamiy...haha..bless him..been a while since hes woken me up with his dream.
On a good point..the cat feels really smooth and slick..so its a compliment I guess..hahaha.
Puppy training was good last night..did some mat training where we get puppy to get on the mat and then teach them to do our bidding by just looking at the mat..Rocco wouldn't go down on command...its hard that one...but one of the guys hyper little king charles puppy did..she was used to demonstrate and it was amazing...the cutest thing ever..now I have to get Rocco to do it.
I love these classes..puppy loves them too.
Another king Charles puppy a little girl called Mia was just coming to the end of her season so she had little knickers on and Rocco was being so sweet with her...she was lying flat but leaning on her forelegs and gazing up at Rocco and he was licking her face and cleaning her eyes...and she was wagging and wagging her tail..was so lovely!!!!!!!!
On with another day..and I'll find out late if I'm about to O yet...come on!!!!
Got my nice pink line on the O test!!!
Darker than the test line me thinks...YAY!!!!
Poor Michael is going to get bonked out!!!
Or lucky Michael..whichever...hahaha...
CD 13 today!!
Tomorrow if I'm counting right should be 1DPO..as I think the egg is on the move now...judging by the stabbing pain in my ovary anyway...feel bloated and uncomfortable today.
Thought I wouldn't be as I was hungry in bed last night..but no..I hate being bloated all the time...got to eat more actimel.
Did the dance last night...nearly couldn't..we were laughing do much we couldn't take it seriously...finally we knuckled down and did it..was a good fun evening..even though I am shattered today as Michael just had to watch CSI first!! LOL
Ended up waking up in the middle of the night busting for the loo..ignored it and went back to sleep and then woke up not being able to ignore it..last time I drink pop in the evening..went straight through me..I never pee at night!!!...but then I don't drink pop very often either..so theres the link!! LOL
Its another beauitful day today..although cold..actually had to scrape the car off and really thought I was going to miss my morning lift from the layby to the station and have to walk in these damn stillies...but phew..I made it.
Had a great journey into work..my sidekick and I talked about all the tv shows that were for kids when we were kids...like the Adventure game, The Storyteller, The flumps, Rosie and Jim, The dungeon thing where the kids guide another kid through levels..Bagpuss...oh where oh where have these programmes gone.
Also do you guys remember the Inteceptor..where the fit scottish guy who was dressed in leathers and had to chase the contestants over the countryside..he had a helicoptor with a pilot called Mikey..and the contestants were all little hotties who WANTED to get caught by the Inteceptor...I loved that programme!!
Oh I feel a rambling day today.
Feeling a bit apprehensive today...and a tad blah.
As you know I had my LH surge the day before yesterday..got to it the day before that and the day.
Last night my fella felt under pressure...big style...felt it was taking all the fun out of nookie...I said we've only done it twice and this is the first month I've actually told you when we need to.
He felt really awkward so I just said then lets leave it for this month, the last thing I want is him to do this when he feels weird over it.
He said that he wanted me happy and that maybe I should see if I "could get it to work"..I declined..told him that I wanted it to be mutual...not just because he wants to see me happy..I didn't want to make sex into something that HAS to be done.
We lay in bed and talked and he asked me questions and I explained that there is only a small window of fertility and its just the timing and that we were in the right place for the timing and had started well but we did need a couple more days to get it right.
I also explained from what I read that I have a 15% chance of falling each month if done correctly because of my age..explained that its about 25% only in younger women.
He couldn't get his head round it and asked about all those women who fall pregnant accidently from one nighters..or just accidently in relationships..I said it was luck..its a flike..and also they are lucky..or unlucky depending on the persons outlook.
Hes not sure he believes that... LOL
He has never been the type of man who like me to initiate sex..so I guess its really hard for him.
I tried to explain to him that our relationship meant more to me than having a baby so if he wanted to stop trying then I would go back onto the BCP. He assured me that he did want a baby, but it was so much effort...I said you've only had 2 nights of effort.
I also said that even if we did it right it could still take a lot of time due to my age, due to things we don't know..we don't know if my CM is particularly fertile..or what the motibilty in his sperm is...these are all factors..we don't know anything for definate.
He said a few more times that maybe I should try to "get it to work" but when someone is lying on their back with their mouth covered by the duvet and saying that..well...you know thats its not the right reason..I couldn't do it..if maybe he had leant over and kissed me or initiated it himself I would have..but I would have felt I was forcing him.
i wonder in all reality what my cahnces are this month as yesterday would have been when I was ovulating I think...I would assume today is too late..I can only hope that we got some sperm that was alive for over 24 hours and one strong little sucker got there..but if not..then its not meant to be this month and we'll have to work out how to combat how he feels...he has a lower sex drive than me anyway...how do i boost it...how do i try and make him excited about sex being for making a new life..rather than him feeling like a performing dog.
I love him so much and really don't want him to feel pressured..or guilty..he feels dreadful about what happened last night..I don't want him to feel dreadful.
I just want him to relax.
Hes my world and I'll do anything for him.
I hope he knows that.
Well finally its Friday..and my god is it long over due..I am shatterpated!!
Didn't sleep well last at all....must have been tossing and turning as Michael turned over to cuddle me asking if I was okay and couldn't I sleep...I said that I thought I was in really light sleep because everytime there was a noise I was wide awake.
Bloody cat was trying to get under the blinds so I ended up grabbing a sock and lobbing it at her..missed her and made even more noise on the blinds..luckily she got the hint and went up on top of the wardrobe to her special bed that Michael bought her.
Puppy was going mental for some reason downstairs and wouldn't shut up..maybe the cat had gone down for food and decided to wind him up..wouldn't surprise me.
Can't wait for 4 so I can get out of here.
Meeting a chum at the station so we can grab a coffee and have a catch up..haven't seen her since M and I moved in together and we have lots to catch up on..will be brief but nice.
Thinking of getting chinese this weekend...but Michael said I'm limited on my favs as my tummys a ball...cheeky git..he calls me momma plumpton one more time I'll wiggle his moobie and he hates that hahahaha.
I'm a bloody size 8..cheeky sod!!!! LOL
Think I'm going to curl up under my desk today and sleep...feel a little under the weather with a snotty nose and sneezing..NO its not swine flu..LOL
Thinking I may have a little hay fever as my eyes are sore too..but could be lack of sleep.
Long weekend..so very happy as I have 3 lie ins..YAY!!!
Hope everyone has a fab Bank holiday...or fab weekend whereever you all are.
What a top weekend.
Had such fun and puppy had the best day of his life saturday I think..he actually got to come out everywhere with us.
We went up to M's parents house so he could run round the field with their Jack Russell Bill and they loved it.
It was so funny walking there..we decided to cut across the field in the back rather than going through the front and the grass was so long..Rocco was bouncing through it and all we could see were his ears when he was jumping.
Then we meandered up to our friends and Rocco played with their dog for a couple of hours while M did some prep work for a shed that our friends are building.
I lay in the sun and managed to get a bit burnt...my chest looks very funny as I was wear a shirt so it looks like I have a red long collar...luckily its gone brown now. LOL
Then we worked down to some other friends and sat in the garden with a bottle of plonk.
The boys were throwing tennis balls for puppy..he was loving it.
When we got home puppy was zonked and he and M were sleeping curled up on the sofa...so cute.
Sunday we had a bbq at M's sisters which was nice...all the family were there so it was anice little get together.
Then we went to the pub...was a giggle...some poor girl managed to cut the top of her finger off outside...have no idea how but poor poor girl.!
Yesterday we went up to some more friends for another bbq..it was so chilly I had lots of tea and let everyone else do their drinking...anyway..not only that I don't like to drink the night before work.
Also I think I may have had too much on Sunday night.
Didn't feel drunk and stopped drinking also before the other but when I went to wash up the breakfast stuff and started gagging when I saw the fat from the bacon...so assumed I was hungover.
Not sleeping well at all at the moment.
For the last few weeks I toss and turn and wake up with such a painful back..the last week I have actually been woken from the pain.
I need to source a new mattress I think..its getting so uncomfortable just lying in it
I used to love that matress..now I think it may be too soft..the kinks are working out gradually.
Mattresses are so expensive...I'll see if we can turn it..that may help.
Managed to burn a smile on my tummy on Saturdat..took a baking tray out of the oven and pulled it towards me to let M walk past and it sizzled...straight across one of my daisy tattoos...geat!!..it looks vile..looks like someone has drawn and smile on my tummy. LOL
Anyway...no news as yet...about 9 days til I can see if maybe we under some stroke of luck caught the egg!!!
Hope everyone had a top weekend!!!!
