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.

Good Sign Updated

I stared at the phone so long I thought my laser eyes were gonna make it combust!

Finally the call:

HCG = 200
Progesterone = 80

'Happy' with both levels the nurse said. (Today is Day 16).

Stay on Prog*nova and Prog. pessaries

I've already spoken to my doctor - made him call me back while he's on holiday. He's happy for me to keep getting betas to make sure I'm doubling.

Star and I have already spoken for ages. She said she had all her leftover needles and unused medication and was ready to go again.

We're both still sad about our lost embies.

BUT we're ready for our next milestones.

Thank you everyone who comes to visit, I know following my story to this point has not been for the faint-hearted.
