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...
Well here I am a week and a half into my new job in the civil service and all I can say is that I feel very much like a rabbit in the headlights. So far I have met about half the team. It seems to be spread out over three offices. Two relatively close … Continue reading New Job
As previously mentioned I am no fan of the heat and the UK seems to be having a lot in the way of heat waves this year. To the point that I feel a bit like the Wicked Witch having a bucket of water thrown over her, except I never actually get to the being … Continue reading I’m Melting… Meeeltiiing
OK, So everything (I really, really hope) has finally been retrieved from our home in Follytown. The house is now forlorn and empty. I really don't like it. It makes me miserable. I've packed stuff away all over the place - in storage*, at my parents, in our temporary flat! I picked up the last … Continue reading The End of a Chapter
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!
