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...
I'm a dreadful sleeper, or at least I'm a dreadful getting to sleeper. Always have been. It takes me ages and ages to go to sleep. I can't switch my brain off not that I'm thinking of anything particularly bad but at the same time it's just going, whirring away all the time. Recently however … Continue reading Insomnia, interviews and Shaun the Sheep
Well, nearly. Technically there's still a fortnight or so to go. 32 sounds so old and grown up. And I'm neither of those things really. There's nothing I enjoy more than a bit of silliness, or maybe a lot of silliness. I can have whole conversations about random made up stuff. They're the best sort … Continue reading 32 years old
No wonder I felt like Crumpets for breakfast - apparently this blog has lasted a whole year*. I'm quite impressed with this. A year is a long time. Or on the other hand it's a very short amount of time. It all depends on your perspective. Time is a weird thing, I've never really been … Continue reading One Year On
So I feel I'm blaming 2017 for a few too many things. It has, to be fair been a stressful year what with IVF and moving twice etc etc finished off by a leaking hot water tank and a washing machine not doing it's thing, really not good as I have about a million towels … Continue reading 2017 wasn’t all bad, honest
2017 has most emphatically not been our year as proven by the latest fiasco. We came home after Christmas to find our hot water tank had sprung a leak leaking through the floor of the airing cupboard and into a puddle by the front door which I stepped in when we came through the front … Continue reading Why, 2017? Why?
Finally. I mean it - it's finally starting to feel like Christmas. I'm a huge fan of Christmas. I mean huge - I love it. I spend ages getting the perfect presents, my tree is up on the First of December that sort of thing. I love the lights and the excitement and the secrets. … Continue reading It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas
After months of waiting for the hysteroscopy, I finally had it on Friday. This involved me being put to sleep and the doctor having a rummage in my womb with a camera. Conclusion? No Polyps. Yay! Possibly a slightly funny shaped womb could be stopping implantation - too heart shaped possibly? Boo! I'm not very … Continue reading So… No Polyps…
So last week was insane. I mean truly insane. As I mentioned in my last post, we have the keys so moving ensued last weekend. Monday I had my pre-op for the Hysteroscopy which now lies on the 15th of December. In Banbury, which is two whole hours away. So there I drove, for a … Continue reading Wedding Madness
Friday 2pm We have the keys. I repeat, we finally have the keys. Well I have the keys. The Lost Astronomer is currently about 4 hours away. Doing work stuff. So currently I'm sat in our rented Southampton flat twiddling my thumbs, admittedly I could probably pack more stuff but I prefer to clear what's … Continue reading Our house, in the middle of our street
So exactly three weeks from now my baby sister will be spending her last morning as a miss. She will be getting herself sorted for the family event of the year, as will we all. As a result everybody is in a dither. There's only three weeks to go and apparently so much still to … Continue reading Timing is everything…
