Today we got the gift of hope. Hope for a future with children. Today we were told that we can go ahead with the IVF. I'm really quite excited about the whole thing even though I'm also trying desperately not to be. There is after all quite a large chance it won't work - the statistics say so. But still...
You may have picked up from my various stress filled posts that we are in the middle of the painfully slow process that is moving house. Now moving is known for being a pain in the backside, just ask my sister and she only moved 50 yards down the street and crossed the road. You … Continue reading Moving house in parts
We are slowly, very slowly moving towards the whole moving out thing. Theoretically we'll be out of our current home within a fortnight. Except we won't be moving into our new home. That would obviously be far too much to expect. So we're going into rental accommodation for a while and our stuff is going … Continue reading The Great Box Hunt
As I mentioned in my last post last weekend held a family party, and we managed to catch up with people we hadn't seen for a while. It was great to catch up with people but we also received incredibly late Christmas presents - a Dairy Milk and a Book Voucher each. The question is … Continue reading Book Vouchers and not buying any books
So until now babies haven't been a problem for me. Probably because there haven't been any in the last couple of years. The last baby born to my family was two in February. When he was born I still thought we'd get a baby of our own any day now... Well, nine months from any … Continue reading Dealing with babies…
It's so annoying. I got a missed call from one of the doctors at the Clinic Wednesday. No idea which one as I couldn't understand his accent. By the time I got the message and phoned back the clinic was closed. I work in a cellar - my mobile is out of signal for the … Continue reading IVF – how the Lost Astronomer doesn’t count
I've always loved being outside on summer evenings. There are a couple of reasons reasons for this. 1. As mentioned previously I am not a heat person, in fact I go so far as to hide from it. 2. The light is so pretty. 3. It's good thinking time. My parents always hated my habit of going … Continue reading An evening stroll around Follytown
Well that's that then, no more IVF for a few months. Today we went to the Fertility Clinic for a baseline scan before starting on the next round of IVF in this case a frozen round. They were using the scan to check for a polyp which they'd picked up on during the first round … Continue reading And Pause!
The sun has come out with a vengeance. Starting yesterday. Or at least starting properly yesterday. The couple of days before yesterday alternated between blazing sun and pouring rain. It was very odd. Many rainbows. I do like a good rainbow. However I am completely and utterly anti-sun and more to the point anti-hot weather. … Continue reading Sunshine and lollipops
Bartok had it right! I'm convinced stress is bad for me what with the IVF starting again, as my period has started and the house moving and just everything. I'm not dealing well with anything at the moment....
As a farm girl animals have been a big part of my life and as we spend much time visiting the farm anifeiliaid (animals) are nice easy things to teach. I'm not very original and find it better if the Lost Astronomer points at something and I tell him the word. So down on the farm … Continue reading Teaching The Lost Astronomer Welsh: Animals
