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
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!
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
So we're about 5 weeks on from the period that made it clear that our first round of IVF has failed. I didn't even get to do a pregnancy test while not bleeding... Today, we saw the doctor - he went through the whole IVF procedure with us, explaining this was normal and that was … Continue reading IVF Time to Reflect
Unfortunately, (or perhaps fortunately considering the amount I've bled this week) the pregnancy test I had to wait until today to take is negative. I've emailed the fertility clinic and am hoping they'll get back to me soon telling me I can stop the progesterone suppositories. Because they're horrible. And there's no reason for them … Continue reading IVF Day 67 – it’s definitely negative
So in my wisdom I decided the best thing I could do today was go to work. It'll be a distraction I said, I can't just not go to work because my period started AGAIN I said. So I dutifully got on the bus at 7:30 getting to work by 8:30. The thing is I … Continue reading IVF Day 65 – Running Away from Work
I'm not a patient person. I can't help it I'm just not. And now I have to be patient for very nearly a fortnight to find out if the whole torturous thing of IVF worked. Or at least worked up to that point. (OK more like three days at this point but that's not the … Continue reading Waiting
