Still not here but for some reason I feel a little less freaked out - hearing that post birth periods can be so up the whack. That said I have ALWAYS had a 28 day cycle. I have never skipped periods for any reason bar pregnancy before. After both Shou and Marina it came back at three months and stayed. I casually asked hub this morning if he could remember a time this past month when we had not used any shinken chinchinan security. He said no but looked very pale and said 'we can't do another one you know'.
Shit, am just going to flick back over posts to see if even had relations during preggable time.
Crap - had shag on night of day 13.
Aren't there some pee sticks that you can tell only a week after period due? If hasn't come by about Wednesday next week I will go and get one. SIGH. Carrying Ryu into chemist to buy pregnancy test and I'm sure I will feel like biggest irresponsible slutty pants hoe ever. I'm pretty sure I know what we would do if I was pregnant but probably really no point even talking about - will cross that bridge when we come to it and all that.
In normal news - Ryu and I went to visit Jo this morning so she could sign the documents for Ryu's New Zealand citizenship and passport. We came home and faffed round for an hour and then went to pick up Chiemi to go the Indian place in the mountains - which is no more we found out once we drove all the way up there. Has been closed since bloody March. Then went to small coffee shop that was also closed and we ended up at place Solar Panal Man's wife and I always frequent.
Got home and thought would just nap with Ryu for twenty minutes or so - when woke up was ten past bloody four so had to run round like mad woman sorting dinner, running the bath, getting jim jams out and feeding Ryu before going to pick sproglets up.
Hub walked in the door at half seven as I was literally coming down the stairs after getting Ryu to sleep. Marina went down just before that and Shou was still up waiting for me to put together some shinken plastic robot thing that I had promised him I would do once the others were in bed.
Hub: Oh, I thought all the kids would be in bed.
Me: It's only just half seven.
Me: How on earth do you expect me to get three kids to bed in the space of half an hour? I think have done stellar job getting the two of them down before his highness comes home don't you?
Hub: Crikey aren't we in shit mood.
Me: (as I'm getting his dinner ready) Why don't you just try the three kids on your own thing just once darling, sweety, would throw you off the tenth story balcony if we lived that high up, pumpkin, honey pie.
Hub: Why don't you and Chiemi go out tomorrow night? You're obviously a bit stressed and perhaps a night out would be good.
Fuck, I'd rather have a diamond or a week at a Spa but not one to look a gift horse in the mouth I have mailed Chiemi and am awaiting a reply.
Hub was meant to be helping harvest the rice tomorrow but our builder, who just also happens to be our rice harvester, decided to get it over with today. It will magically appear as bags and bags of waiting to be husked rice tomorrow. The nicest stuff will get sent off around the country to relatives by Granny K and we will get the rest.
Don't think any more news to share with you this fine I might be bloody pregnant evening so will leave you with a couple of funnies...
This is Shou this morning. Mask made from lid of box that a prezzie for Ryu came in. Has a rubber band thing to go round the back of his head. He thinks he looks like a Ninja. Shit this made me laugh for ages this morning. The teachers at kindy (yip - he wore it the whole way there) had a good laugh too, especially at his 'high' nose being squashed abainst the plastic.
This is Coffee Chiemi's youngest son Uta-kun. His legs and arms are going a mile a minute and I'm amazed I even got a proper pic. Could be Olympic diver.
