Congrats & stuff

So it give me great pleasure to say a huge CONGRATULATIONS to my younger sister Carys and her hubby Shaun! I got a phone call on Friday morning asking if hpt's are sensitive (bless her) and I of course just screamed Yippee!! I am so happy for them as they've been trying for a while now & I know how much it sucks when you want something so badly! Wow, I wish you guys a wonderful healthy and happy nine months :)

So I went to the gynae on Friday for another check up too. He basically told me that he's not a fertility specialist, and if i want to see one then i must rather go to the fertility clinic. That sounds harsh & he didn't really say it like that, but you get what i mean.
He said i had either a cyst or a follie on the right hand side. Now this made me sad as i thought i had already ovulated from the left hand side. I am not sure if there'd be visible evidence if i did! He said everything looked fine, so whether that means my uterus lining is also fine I don't know. (yip i know, stupid not to ask AGAIN). So basically the appt was a waste of time. I left there not knowing if I have ovulated, or if I am going to. The other thing is doc said i must give my body a break from the clomid now :( That also upset me as I don't think I will ovulate on my own any more. I may just go the soy route until the end of the year, then take things further in the new year.

On Saturday I dropped Connor off at his Ouma & Oupa's house as I was going to a stork party and shame he fell asleep on Ouma and slept the whole time I was away!

On another note, I am taking some meat to Pick n Pay today hehehe Nope not because i cook so well, but actually because I bought some meat from them yesterday & when I got home I cooked it. When i opened it I smelt it and thought it was suspicious, but cooked it as it had a basting on which i just presumed was what i was smelling. Once it was cooked, I had one taste & realised that I was right - it was off!!!!! Nasty. Now I am taking it in a bag back to them & will be demanding a refund. I mean how the hell can they sell meat that's off?? Wish me luck ha ha ha


Will post again soon


Doc update

Good grief, at long last (and after cortizone and steroids) Connor seems to be finding the road to recovery again! We had a very hectic few nights with him as he just couldn't stop coughing which in turn effected his sleeping. The doctor basically said that because he's been on anti biotics, the infection is now 'coming out'. The coughing is caused by loose phlegm. He told us that if Connor isn't better by Monday (today) we must take him to see a specialist.
Thank goodness that he seems better now than he did. He's by no means 100% yet, but I think he should be by the end of the week!

Connor finished his anti biotic on Saturday & seemed fine. UNTIL yesterday! He is none stop coughing & I decided to take him back to his gp. I am getting worried as he's had this cough for about 4 wks now & yesterday he had a bit of fever. Hope the doc gives us some meds that sort him out once & for all.

TTC: Have mega o pains going on, but not a clear + opk yet :)

Will keep you posted on doc results

Well i am very excited to share this bit of news with you. I got a phone call yesterday from one of the creche's that I put Connor's name down on the waiting list & she told me she has a place for him!!! So we went to go & have a look & I must just say, i LOVE it! There is a nice warm, open atmosphere about the place & the people are very friendly. There's loads of things for the kiddies to do & they all look very happy to be there!
Connor ran off with some of the kids & actually cried when i told him it's time to go. He said it's 'his kool' & cried all the way to the car.
I am so happy he got in there & I think he's going to love it. Oh and best of all, they have LOADS of extra murals for the kids for next year, so I can get him started with swimming & gymnastics too!

Sickly beings

I took Connor off to the gp yesterday. Firstly because i had the worse hay fever ever, and couldn't sleep because of my itchy mouth. Secondly because Connor has had the flu on & off for the past two weeks.
The diagnosis is: Connor got some anti biotics to clear up his infection as it was going into his tonsils again. He also got some anti histamine which helped to clear his blocked nose.
I on the other hand got some unexpected news. My asthma is back with a vengeance :( I am now on steroids to help my lungs & doc reckons if i don't sort it out now, I will be in hospital for it in less than 6 mnths. So obviously i decided to take the meds - which is for at least two months, then will be reassessed. I also have an ear infection which according to doc looks like big water bubbles in my ear, so got and anti biotic for that & some celestamine for the hay fever! Wow I am feeling like I am falling apart.

The good thing about the appt is Dr. Sookram (man i love this woman) suggested i have my thyroid rechecked as it was a bit over active last time i saw her. She said i won't conceive if that's not right & she understands my 'need' to fall pg quickly he he he. So I had some bloods drawn & should get the results by Friday. Jo (Dr. Sookram) also copied Dr. Wellensiek (gynae) in on the results, so he'll have a copy too :)
Oh and I was discussing the Femara / Clomid debate with Jo. She said that some new results should be coming out by the end of the year that prove that Femara is much less harsh on the body & produces much better results than the Clomid!!!! I will be seeing her next year for the Femara if nothing materialises by then (Dr. Wellensick doesn't know about Femara!!!!)
The other thing is I am not sure if i will keep my gynae appt for next week as it seems a bit futile if my thyroid is over active. Well will keep you posted on the results.

As for now, I am going to have a nap with my lil prince.

I ho I ho it's off to doc i go

Well the witch arrived a day late (after building up much anticipated hope) on Friday. I even poas in the hope that maybe, just maybe i may be lucky :) Oh well.
So with her arrival, it marks the fifth month for me on clomid. I figured i would do the whole six months on the stuff if anything, just to please my doc & then go for more tests from there.
The very strange thing is I sometimes get cramps, but on Friday, man they were crippling me.
Then the witch confused me even more by disappearing again yesterday afternoon. That means my af was 2.5 days long??? Well that was enough for me & I made an appt to see the doctor on the 23rd October at 14h15. I am of course hoping he finds no irregularities, but also hoping that he finds an answer for something (Ie uterus lining too thin etc).

On the other news, Connor is full of the flu again :(
I was getting so excited, as he actually slept in his own bed on Tues & Wed and only came into our room in the morning. I of course thought this is a good turn & from now on he'll stay in his own room. Boy was that dream short lived. Shame I can't blame him though, he really not feeling too great, so have just been dosing the poor lil chap!

Frank's leaving for Mozambique tomorrow! Yes of course i am green with envy, but the thoughts of joining a 'fishing club trip' were not too appealing, so I am hoping that Connor and I will get our trip to Mozam sometime soon.

Other than that, it's still bladdy raining, but is so so so humid - the joys of living in a tropical area!

Mid week

Hi just a little update:

Well it's midweek already & thought I would surprise you all with another post :)
Not much is actually really happening. Except Frank's paid for all the building materials now, and we will hopefully start our building this weekend! I am actually excited for it :) As for the créche story, we still aren't 100% sure if I am going to do it. Reason being is I am not sure it's what i want to do. I mean to do something like that, you have to do it because you really really want to. Although I love kiddies alot, I am not sure it's what i really really want to do with not much income. Also the long hours worry me as I won't be able to spend the special time with Connor like i do now - so ja back to the drawing board on that idea.

TTC side, around 16dpo today, so the witch should make an appearance tomorrow evening. Now I am cramping quite badly today & not left with much optimism - will keep you posted!

Enjoy your evening all

My gorgeous beach babe

Thought I would share the latest pics:

Blame it on the ....................

I know it's unbelievable how quickly the time goes by & I just don't get round to my blog :(

Well we had an awesome long weekend spent with Dave & Christeli from Jhb. They actually came down to Scottburgh for the weekend & we ended up going & staying with them!
It was really nice, the kids got to play together and we at least had one nice day of sunshine which we spent on the beach :)
The guys went to the rugga on the Friday night, and obviously got home very late again - they battled to keep their eyes open on Saturday he he he
Connor had a blast with his cuzzie (Amber), I will try and post some pics soon!
Then basically we have had non stop rain since Sunday evening!!!!! I kid you not, it's been alot of rain! I of course phsychologically (sorry can't spell that to save my life) tell myself it's an excuse to eat & stuff everything down my throat ha ha ha
Connor is doing well, but like mentioned earlier, is getting bored sitting at home. I have tried to keep him busy this week so far though! Monday we went to the post office & did some grocery shopping (yeah i know it's boring, but hey at least we get out of the house a bit).
Tuesday we went through to the pavillion - it was awesome spending time with Connor & I ended up getting him a few things for xmas! Well he actually picked the things, but forgot about them by the time we got home, so I put them away he he he. Yesterday we went to the mommy group, but Connor wasn't too keen on playing with the kids this time around! But its alright :)
Then this morning (after a restless evening with Connor) we got up early to pick up Frank from the airport! Everything went ok, except Connor in his own mind had decided that we were going to the airport so WE could fly on the aeroplane! Needless to say we had heartbreak on the way home :( But he knows we will go on a plane 'soon' (his own words) as we will be going to Jhb in Dec!
Hmmm so that's about all so far, will try update again soon!!!!!!!

Oh ttc side: I am CD25 today and approx 10dpo, af is due around thursday next wk. I may poas on Monday IF there's no sign of AF! Hold fingers!
I have been cramping since yesterday, but oddly, on both sides! Hope this is a good sign, but the sane side of me is telling me it may be cysts again!
