Socks and BBT

So ages ago I told you I was going to have another go at making socks, well finally, here is the finished product!

It has taken slightly longer then expected thanks mainly to me being distracted by other things and going on holiday. Its not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it fits and is quite comfy! Now I just have to make the second one, hmmmm, fingers crossed I get it done before Christmas!

Its all very quite in our household at the moment, hubby is off at a conference, in an all inclusive resort in Mallorca (its alright for some!) so I'm all on my lonesome. The plan is to use this time productively, tidy the house, get some craft projects done, but in reality I'll most likely spend the two weeks eating junk food and watching all the trashy tv I can!

On the IF front there's not a lot to report, I've decided to try and do my BBT charting using the not so pleasant way, nothing like a cold thermometer up your hoo ha first thing in the morning! Hopefully I'll get a nicer chart this way so we can get an idea of what's going on in there. I'm also now a week into taking Angus castus, no side effects yet but I know it can take a few cycles to get into your system so we'll wait and see!

Well that's about it for now!

Not posted in awhile...

Hello lovely people in the internetland!

Well its been quite a long time since my last post, mainly because we've been on holiday! A lovely 3 weeks away which included being a bridesmaid at my best friends wedding! We had an amazing time catching up with family and friends and even managed to fit in a trip to the university hubby is hoping to get a job in next year. Coming home wasn't so much fun though, we were greeted by envelopes from our health insurers and the lab that did some of my blood tests. The envelope from the lab contained a bill for $3100!! I was shocked! And the ones from our insurers contained rejections for the payment of the blood tests and my HSG, and a rejection of an appeal to pay for the HSG. Fun fun fun. After lots of phone calls and emails I've found out our fertility center is working on the HSG costs and putting in all the appeals for us so I don't have to worry about that one and finally today we've managed to get the lab bill reduced by 90%!! Woohoo. So now I'm much less stressed out I will return to regular posts I promise! Oh and in case your wondering, I'm on cd5 today, no relaxed, holiday bfp for us
