So I'm back from my holiday. It was fantastic, this picture says it all, and is a chance to show off the camera I got for my birthday. It was very English, lots of amazing food (we all enjoy cooking) and excellent company, but this blog isn't about my holiday.
And The Big Push is really starting tomorrow.
So I've had a fantastic break. I drank copious amounts of booze, ate runny cheese, shunned my vitamin supplements, stayed up late, had unprotected sex (though only with the husband, and I still shoved a pillow under my hips afterwards).
And hoped against hope that this flagrant disregard for my well-being, refusal to pee on sticks to find out whether it was business time and utter relaxation would become one of those stories to tell the children. "We'd given up hope of anything happening without medical intervention so just went away on holiday and - bingo - along you came".
I came back from holiday did a quick pregnancy test this morning. Negative but I have no way of knowing just now whether I have ovulated since March or will ovulate tomorrow, whether my cycle will be 30 days or 90. So I don't know if now was the right time to test anyway.
So as from tomorrow here are the rules:
- Back to the folic acid
- No caffeine, mint tea all the way
- Yoga at least once a week
- No mid-week boozing (come on, I can't give it up all together)
- And not forgetting ... lots and lots of sex.
