Ooh, Baby, baby...

Now, before anyone gets excited, the following is an OVULATION test, not a pregnancy test. This one is boardering on positive (the two lines need to be as dark as each other, or the test line (on the left) should be darker than the control line). As my temp didn't rise enough this morning to indicate ovulation, I'm considering this test from yesterday to be negative, but certainly, I'm getting close to ovulation...


The following two pictures are for the benefit of people who are curious about the girl drink I'm taking...





Appetizing, isn't it? I mix on scoop of this stuff with 250ml of skim milk, and a couple of table spoons of yogurt (which was Dave's suggestion to make it taste better)... The colour of the powder is because of the cranberries that are obviously dried and crush to make the powder.

I'm getting used to the drink, but it won't be something I'll miss when I can stop taking it, hahaha!

I'm off to the Dr's this morning to organise a script for Primulot N to move my cycle so that I align in January. I'm pretty nervous about the appointment actually, because so much hangs on me aligning in January so I really need the Primulot. The Dr I'm seeing is very proud of the fact that she doesn't write out prescriptions on demand, so I've got to convince her I need this and specifically Primulot as opposed to The Pill. I have a story all sorted, so hopefully it'll be enough to convince her... If you read this before 10am, please feel free to sending me some positive energy for getting those tablets!

The drink tastes like wet cardboard. Quite seriously, that is the closest flavour I can give it. I add a bit of honey or vanilla yogurt to it, and then you can sort of taste the cranberries. Dave swears by caramel topping, I haven´t tried that yet, maybe tomorrow morning.

Ewww sounds about as tempting as a tonic from the homeopath lol All worth it though when you are holding your little girl/s in your arms!
