Had a lovely dinner with crabby and pinkshootingstar. And today at Mont Rochelle was awesome. I agree with pinkshootingstar, Faith was awesome at organizing a last-minute request and I wish that I would have taken her up on more activities or bookings.
For those planning, I would recommend arriving at least two days before your appointment. People get bumped, jet lag and general weariness has happened. As well, I would also book for two days post expected transfer. My egg retrieval was supposed to happen Monday, but actually happened on Wednesday. It all worked out as I am leaving on Tuesday, but had I not given a two day buffer, I would be a little more stressed.
Devaki, sorry to hear you are having a rough time. Sending you warm and nourishing thoughts.
Annabelle, I'm a single mother by choice as well (really by chance, c'est la vie), and I am also considering the implications of twins, I am by nature a planner. Cyndi (Dr. Wiswedel's nurse) said that last year, another SMC Aussie had twins and is loving it and can't imagine doing it any other way.
Blinky, the bedrest sounds pretty frustrating, and I don't envy you the valium haze. It sounds like you are making the best of it though. Your employer sounds very understanding.
Tomorrow 1:30, game time for pinkshootingstar and I, an hour later for crabby. Now off to bed for a good nights rest.
Thanks so much for all the support. And Mont Rochelle is gorgeous!
