Ready to go!

Two meanings of course here!

We are getting ready to go to Italy tomorrow for 2 and half weeks, seaside with my mom and sister and then realx on hills of the Apennines. Mike won't come with us this time and we'll miss him a lot but I know he'll miss us even more. I don't have much to pack, but I look forward to see how the superlight stroller will perform at the airport, it's way to warm in Italy for the sling and till I'll be comfortable carrying Oliver on my back, the weight on the front is a bit too much.

This was us the last time at the airport in Italy

I'm never very good at taking too many pics, but I'll definitely make an effort this time and I'll bring also the camcorder. We'll see!

And remember last week I had my blood tests done at the GP on CD3 to see how my hormones were doing. Here they are:
FSH 6.4
LH 3.6
E2 168 (pmol/L or 45.8 pg/mL)

TSH 2.80

So needless to say I'm delighted and the Fav Doctor texted me when she got the faxed results saying she was confident the response in September will be good.
I also had my total blood count done and all is well, very good haemoglobin and the only thing out of range were my neutrophiles which are a bit below the minimum but the GP said it's nothing to worry about as everything else is normal.

I won't have much of a connection while on holidays, so I'm afraid I won't be able to comment if not sporadically, but you are all in my thoughts!


  1. Have a wonderful time!

    The results are great, and like I said before, September will be here in no time.

  5. Have fun lil munchkin. Soak in all the pampering and the sun! :)

    Awesome numbers there Fran!

  6. September is my favorite month of the year! Besides, since I'm teaching the summer term, I know that there are exactly 7 weeks until the mid of August, so that makes September sound very, very close!

    Enjoy your vacation! Savor each moment. And come back and tell me all about the food. ;)

  7. I hope you have a wonderful trip! Such a cute picture!!! And great news on the bloodwork - baby #2 will be here before you know it...

  11. Hello! I know you don’t know me, but we’ve got something in common. I got your blog address off the Stirrup Queen’s blogroll and was wondering if you wouldn’t mind helping me help a couple who is trying to add a little one to their family. We’re holding a silent auction for them this weekend (Friday and Saturday) on and need help getting the word out! We would love it if you would spread the word via social media or here on your blog. Additionally, we are always looking for more donations to auction off, so if you or someone you know might be interested in making a donation, all the information is under the donate tab. If you have any questions or would be willing to post a pre-written blog post about the auction and the sponsored couple, please contact Kristin at Thanks in advance for taking the time to consider this!

  12. I'm late in are well into your holiday by now, and I hope it's a wonderful time! I LOVE the pic of you and Oliver at the airport. Mike is going to miss you both so much, that when you get home, he is going to shower you both with love and attention. Take it! God speed and safe journey.

  13. Have a great vacation!! Can't wait to see the pics.

  14. Hope you have a great vacation! And great news about your blood work. September will be here before you know it.

  15. You must be back now. How was the vacation?
