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.

Nearly Somewhere

Yesterday both Star and I received forms for blood tests in the mail.

Mine were all tests I'd had done a million times.

To add more confusion to the mix, Nice Nurse from the clinic was off sick.

'Ring tomorrow, after she's done the morning blood tests, if you're still not sure what's going on, I'll take the files into the doctor, and we'll go over everything'. Glamour Nurse advised.

This morning Nice Nurse explained everything. Star has been sent all the blood forms she'll need once the cycle gets going. I definitely need one more (HTV), and that can be done on Monday.

What about the other urgent blood tests?

'Karotype is in and that's fine, chasing CF this morning' (LATER: CF is on the Path Lab list, but without a result next to it, this will have to be chased again on Monday).

'So, the only thing I'm still not sure about is our actual schedule?'
'Don't worry, once we get the CF results, we're on our way, the good thing is you're on Syn0rel, it gives us lots of flexibility'.
'What about the Christmas Closures, do you think we'll make it?'
'Don't think that'll be a problem'.

So, while it looks like I'm just sitting around posting the odd 'my thoughts' post, and sniffing, we are still on track.

(BTW, at some Christmas drinks the other night, had to go and have my sniff - loved walking out of the lou afterwards)

I think once we get going, we'll be hitting the ground running.

The clinic will be closed, (that is ... no more procedures after) the 17th and 18th December. By my calculations we will have to start stims by about the 2nd December.
