To me, this means hot Radox baths and going to bed at 9pm to devour a good book or to pick out AW/11 essentials in Grazia.
To The Husband, it means one thing. More sex.
There is one time when you can guarantee our libidos are entirely in balance, and that's when we're trying for a baby. On both occasions we conceived, I vowed to be relaxed and Zen about the whole thing but in fact my style was more military than missionary. Before too long I was taking my temperature and weeing on sticks at every opportunity, then demanding The Husband comes to bed in the middle of Top Gear.
Recognising how the 'trying for a baby' process may wrestle with my impatient gene, The Husband bought me a job lot of ovulation and pregnancy tests from eBay (TOP TIP - they are super cheap, you can buy stacks at once and they work just fine). Which meant I could test for eggs or babies pretty much daily and the only cost was the complete Mind F**k it was causing me.
So, for all you Autumnal baby-bonkers out there, I've got some freebies to give away:
10 boxes of First Response Easy-Read Ovulation Tests (each box contains 5 tests plus a free pregnancy test)
A Positive Pregnancy relaxation CD by Andrew Johnson http://www.withandrewjohnson.com/
To win, just mention me on Twitter @NPMother or leave a comment here. The best comment will win the CD as well as a box of the tests. Good luck!
As for me, I'll just be watching X Factor and having an early night with a good book.
