Hi everyone I have been away for ages. And oh boy, have I missed a lot!!! I’ve tried to go back and read quite a few pages but please excuse me if I miss something or someone as I am sure I will...
Congrats to roma for the birth of your son – he just snuck into 2012!! Congrats traveler on the arrival of your baby girl!! What wonderful news that now your family is complete !
Congrats to Lillac, Bella, TTHC, Nat for being UTD!!! Hope I haven’t left anyone out.
Quartz, congrats on having your baby boy come home finally! You must be so thrilled! How are you surviving having both of them??
Sorry peonies on AF coming I think its wonderful you found a donor and are trying AI. Fingers crossed the next month brings you a BFP!
AFM and why I went MIA, as some of you might recall, the last BFN was hard and we took a break in April and went down the acupuncture path and healthy eating etc. Lost weight, felt better. Was ready to try again around June/ July but acupuncturist said I wasn’t ready and needed a couple more months to get healthier & improve immune system (when I get a virus my body doesn’t fight it well and the cold turns severe). Aug we decided to move to Perth for a while, as my Dad is 80 and I started thinking last year he is going to die soon, and he also has Parkinsons so is quite frail. Sept/ Oct were a mad blur of painting, making house presentable, decluttering and packing. DH and I moved to Perth in Nov. Plan is for two years (we kept our house in Sydney and are renting it out). Found a house to rent. Got a part time job and plan to stay part time to be less stressed and have time to do IVF. Now looking for a new clinic in Perth. I have to say, reading all these pregnancies and births is wonderful, I am so happy for all you ladies. And you are all so inspiring, each of you persevering on the difficult, tearful, sometimes painful journey that is IVF. You and your stories of your pregnancies have inspired me even more to get back on the IVF track. I think I've been a bit in denial and hoping for a natural miracle but it hasn’t happened and I need to start another cycle again soon. Just before we left Syd I got tested (Dr Sacks) for NK cells and luckily I don’t have them. Perhaps just need to do more cycles. Plan to ask for a HyCo Sy test. Don’t know why FS in Syd hadn’t ordered that test for me.
