    Things have been a bit tough here and there @TORtiseNotTheHare.
    We had our holiday in Phuket - which was ok - not awesome, cos we both got sick, but ok. We've moved house and I've started my new job - FAR less stressful, & leaves me with energy at the end of a work day still! G is waiting to hear on some work still, but we're hopeful on that front.
    As far as baby making we've had to get realistic, & put the breaks on it for probably 6 months. G is having weight loss surgery in 2 weeks, & i need to get my own health back under control, so we will both be healthy for baby (babies lol).
    My sister and her kids live in the same town, so have been spending heaps of time with them, which is brilliant 😆

    Oh that's fantastic about being able to spend time with the family. That's a real shame about the rough times you have had but at least things are looking up. That's also great about your DP's weight loss surgery! I'm feeling pretty shattered because I've put some weight back on during this stimming process. In fact I'm feeling gutted about it. It's the part I'm worried about most - putting on weight! If it starts to become too stressful for me or I feel like my weight loss is starting to be undone DP and I will switch and she can carry bub 1. We will see how this first transfer goes because I'm not sure if I want to switch after that.

    How are you feeling about waiting 6 months or so before embarking on your baby making journey again?

    Really nervous about c waiting. I will be 2 months off my 38th birthday then, & G will be 43 & 1/2. Makes me feel ANCIENT. But financially and health wise it is the bwst option. It gives us time for health inproving again ( i put on weight in the stimming process - & i did it twice 😠) maybe total of 10kg....
    How soon one after another are you planning to carry??

    We would like to have about 2 years between them really. It's so hard to see weight going back on. For some it might not seem so bad but I feel like it's a big deal for me. I don't want to put any weight on unless it a baby or the fluid that comes along with a baby! Has your FS said anything about age? You see so many people waiting until later in life and they still start their families 😊 does your DP want to use her eggs/carry? Sorry can't remember if you have already said.

    So she's out and eating sandwiches in the day surgery area. I'm waiting for her to come back out to me! I can't wait to find out how many eggies we got from here.

    I know how many of my embryos they were able to freeze but I won't say on here till I've told DP. Waiting till I see her :-)

    Well girlies I'm out!

    So let's start with DP's news! As you all know she had 12 eggs collected, 11 were mature, 10 fertilised and drum roll.... 9 embryos have been frozen!

    As for me... I was worried that I wouldn't get a lot because I felt a little empty in the last couple of days (as in not full or bloated as much) but I also got 12 eggs!!! So happy right now! Hopefully most were mature and can be used!! Fingers crossed!
