    He's nine turning ten mid-year, so at the right age to be increasing time with Dad.

    thanks @Corbes. sounds like you've got this down pat! they used to have a bloods area at my GP's office but now there's a doctor in the room. so I'm not sure if they've just relocated the bloods or if I have to goto the pathology place which is a few streets away.

    @Charlie74 I'm going to be super interested to see what response/instructions you get from LB. I asked her about Progy vaginally and Viagra a week or so ago. She shook her head to both. I wonder if she'll suggest either. Or whether you're going to have to go all @BlondeinBrisvegas on us, ie rogue, and self-medicate!!
    AFM I should get AF at the end of this week, then my first lining scan will be 1.5 wks later. While I know the min is 6mm and ideally 7-8mm, at this stage with my lining getting thinner and thinner on each cycle I just want to make it to transfer! So I'm crossing my fingers for 6mm and then go from there. Just throw me a bone and I'll take it. I'm not asking for the whole cow!!!

    @Summer Fair call if he'll be 10y/o by the time the parenting order is granted. My just turned 4y/o has the same amount of contact as your DSS currently has with Dad. Good luck to you, DH and DSS.

    Thanks hon, and for being so supportive when you likely see it from the other side too.
    It was agreed very early on that the three nights a fortnight would work best when DSS was younger, with an increase in time with DH as he got older, but when the subject was first spoken about eighteen months ago, the ex decided she didn't agree with the original outline of increasing time, which is why we've ended up at legal proceedings. The only reason it will work for us is that I work from home and am very flexible and DH runs his own business that he is now in the process of selling, so that he can semi-retire and be very hands on. So we are in a position where it will work, but know it's not the ideal for everyone.

    @Tahli you'll have to get onto those messy castor oil packs as well!

    @Summer How about devouring a whole packet of frozen Mint Slices?! Any lining benefits there?? My last (PMT) hurrah before attempting to be 'good'.
    I should clarify that my DS sees his Dad 5 days a week (3 times a week after work at my house to do DS's bedtime routine) then most w.ends at Dad's house including staying Saturday night if DS wishes. It means I see my ex 5 days a week, less than ideal for me, but great for my DS.

    It is a shame that it gets so complicated - I totally see the bio-mums side of things, but I also see my DH and how much he hurts not being involved day-to-day, having to put up with negative stuff being said about him to his DSS all the time, and how much he wants to be an involved parent.

    So you're on this train too @Corbes? It really sucks and the it is so hard for the fathers who have to prove that they're good parents and it's just assumed that the mother is. Because bio-mum is campaigning for less time for DSS with DH we know that she definitely isn't thinking about his best interests but is getting back at DH for leaving her.

    I'm sure I read a study on Mint Slices and they had a 50% better success rate on lining benefits as opposed to Tim Tams.
    So I think you're on the right track there

    Wow, you are an awesome Mum! So understanding and putting DS first even though it would be difficult to have to see your ex so often. Even though DH & ex are fairly amicable (or were!) the week about means that on change over we drop DSS at school and his Mum picks him up, so very little face to face contact, which would be good. Maybe when your DS starts school you will be able to do some of those things which mean less contact for you with your ex but not less for your DS.
