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.

Puppies and Kittens

The thing with blogging is that it’s like writing in your diary.

Except

You put it up on the internet for all to read.

So then sometimes when you write something a little bit opinionated, you worry about that.

It’s not that you don’t believe in what you write, it’s more to do with not wanting to offend people. Especially because since blogging you have found the most amazing support you could imagine, and it's helped you work through all your crazy emotions in the past couple of years, and even more unbelievably you actually get around in public and seem relatively normal (to the untrained IF eye). AND that's because all your venting and angst has been worked through on your blog.

Phew

So then you figure the only way to fix that is to write the soft and cuddly post.

Except

You can’t for the life of you think of what to write.

So here goes.

Star and I have both now started our BCP’s.

LOL! So that's why I haven't been posting much lately. The calm before the storm is just so ... calm.

Congrats on actually getting started with the protocol. That's wonderful.

So can we call this a nov/dec cycle? Hint, hint.

YAY!! I'm so excited!

It is hard to write how you feel and yet soften it.

Very cool. Glad to see the cycle is starting :))
Blogging is tricky - hard to be totally truthful when you know your friends and family are reading it...

Blogging can be touchy, especially when people you know read your blog. I have a lot of rant posts, and then later I feel awful for them.

Congrats on starting BCPs!!
