Somehow you you do just need to let go.
It it all seems so daunting in the beginning and so Unknown, flying to other side of the world to have a baby. But having done it three times I can say it really is easy and Dr K does this in his sleep, literally, so just let him do the thinking.
Greece is like a second home for me now. I just adore the country and people. I can't wait to take my baby or babies over there one day and tell them how much love went into making them.
Thanks Yasna for the well wishes. I saw the lovely card you sent Dr K when I was there. Your boy is very sweet. We are definitely incredibly lucky.
I'm just struggling to get through each day of nausea and exhaustion, but so happy to know I have life/lives growing inside me. I love being pregnant and all the changes that come with it. It's been ten years since I had my son.
Only 9 days till departure! Who's counting??
Just wondering if anyone has ever felt bloated while taking progynova? I feel almost like I've got PMT and my belly is bloated. Oh well, that's just part of the journey I guess.
Scan next week on Thursday to check lining and determine if changes to protocol required.
Have booked a lovely apartment near the Acropolis in Athens. Will stay there for 3 nights at the end of our trip.
Wishing you all well. Just wondering how @justcantstop is going? Hope all is well!
I'm with you @CherryCP, I'm now on 4 progynova a day. Soooo bloated now.
I've got my lining scan tomorrow and I should be on a plane next week. All so fast. We are doing double donor so going on my own. @AussieAmerican how did you go with organising your scan? My FS is on leave this week so they put me on with someone else.
I'm looking at staying at either Airotel- Stratos Vassilikos or Alexandros. Anyone's opinion for either hotel would be great. They are both pretty close to the clinic.
Good luck to everyone travelling.😀
Don't know those hotels I'm afraid although the names are familiar- I think I've walked past them ... Can't wait to hear how it goes!
Thanks @Vixjc! Love the support!
I read some interesting advice on another thread. It was about coping with a not so good outcome after treatment, ie BFN. Don't want to sound negative but just wanting to be prepared for all outcomes!
One piece of advice was: don't tell a lot of people about what you're doing. There are various reasons why which I won't elaborate here. But generally it takes the weight off you - not having to explain 'it didn't work', etc. The only people who know are DH and mum... and you guys!! Everyone else thinks we're going overseas for our wedding anniversary. (It's actually more like a babymoon!!)
Another suggestion was to plan ahead for what you will do next if it doesn't work this time. I'm already thinking about next available dates that will work in with my job, etc. I also have a horse to train and a farm so there are a couple of specific projects there to keep me going till 'next time'.
My mum is housesitting for us this trip. So I have promised she can come with me 'next time' as DH won't be required... So mum thinks that's a great idea!
Anyway, just wanting to share as it may help others.
I do follow instructions. ... but i thought i missing medicines i haven't bought them and my trip is getting close .... thank you for advise and good luck
