IF and the City

I used to feel sad when I watched the episodes with Charlotte failing over and over again while trying to get pregnant. Little did I know that my own attempts would lead me on the same sad journey. We've now passed 4 years in the trenches. 6 failed IVF/ICSI cycles = nothing. Time for something new - donor eggs. Success at last. Now for round 2.

I haven't checked in for a few days..and look at all that's happened.
You made it to retrieval!
And transfer!
I know you're disappointed to not have more than one; but having 1 gives you a chance of success, even if that chance is smaller than you'd hoped for.
I hope the TWW isn't too horrible.
Like everyone else, I've got my fingers crossed & am hoping for good things for you.

I love this list so I am going to do one of my own even though I haven't been tagged.

Thank you for the Clexane toast this morning. I know you're not telling the beta date, so I'm just randomly sending good energy to coat the entire next two weeks (or 9 months).
