Big prayers for all of us!
Sorry, yeah i didnt think. I dhould have sent it in a pm. I'll go back and find it and delete it.
BeckyGC im so happy for you too :-) im also going in just over 6 weeks. We'll be at the clinic on 26th sept. Dr n wants us straight there from the airport for dh to do his 'thang'. Poor dh! I asked him about it n he said he's not worried coz he's a "horny bugger" lol. Cheers to those supportive partners! Its really quite flattering, i think, that someone wants to have a DE baby with me and for willingly embarking upon what is quite possibly the craziest adventure ive ever planned. Might see you there at the clinic. Im imagining a waiting room full of bogans, lol. @Rhino, i pm ' ed you :-) and just to share my worries coz as if you aint got enough of your own: i still havent heard back from dr.n about my cycle AF coming 5 days early this time. Im thinking of self prescribing microgynon just to make sure its on track. How many days before you arrive did dr.n say to stop taking the pill? I remember he told me it would be good to get my period 10 days before i arrive, so im thinking might start the pill tomorrow and stop 12 days before we arrive? Bit scared to do that though. I'll wait until tomorrow in case he gets back to me :-)
I can second the Amazon hotel, best bed of our stay in Greece, another good one we stayed at is just 2 blocks down towards the sq is called the Plaka Hotel and has a rood top bar that you can watch the sun go down and that thing on the hill light up
Just spoje to dr.N he said a pregnant lady from aus rang him tonight. I thought, i bet i know her on bubhub. :-) Anyway because af has come early, im taking the pill for next 28 days. So i guess, tonight i feel like ive actually started my cycle, coz i popped a sugar pill. Well, that was easy. Got that "its good to be actively participating in a new cycle". Started the first stage of the next part of my journey. Whatever the outcome, It'll make for an amazing story of human endurance and determination to succeed. (Lol, ive gone all sappy over the Olympics. Which is a greek thing bty!) You know, peeps whove worked hard for years, suffered and endured physical and mental challenges, made massive sacrifices of money, time and effort, missing out on social occasions, eating healthy and giving up vices, doing every single thing they can to get that gold medal. And even if you dont win, just being in the team is an amazing demonstration of all those things. And theyre so worthy of admiration for the fact that they have tried so hard regardless of the outcome.
gorgeousgeorge, we're at the clinic on the 26 too! Hopefully we'll run into each other or else can catch up some other time maybe?
Glad you got pill/cycle sorted. Like we need extra stresses, right?!?
gorgeousgeorge I had concerns about my cycle from the beginning that's why he put me on miongynon. I spoke with him before I ended the first month on that and he wanted me to start second lot on active pills on 5th day after ending first Pills. (so I didn't take the 7 days of sugar pills - I lost 2 days!). I take the full 21 days of this second lot and then wait for AF - as soon as I get that I start progynova and no more Pills. He'd also said to be there Day 12 or 13 (but he also told us what day to be in Athens which may not coincide with those days ) that's when I was worried - I'm stressed I get AF on first day after ending Pill then I'll be late getting to Athens (it won't be day 12 or 13 yikes!)... So that stress will be with me. I don't know why he cut out the extra couple of days between pack one and two - but I'm just following his advice.
I hope he gets back to you and you get the answers you need shortly!
I know I'm stressed because I'm not getting things done - that's my sign... still no travel card or euros sorted and no accommodation sorted
