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.

Still Here

Now just on 39 weeks pregnant.

Finished work last week - and feeling a little strange about that. Have to figure out a few things - like what do non-working people do for lunch? I'm used to going to a cafe every day and buying something!

My 'rubber glove' check-up with the Ob. last week revealed that everything looking good for a 'close to date' delivery. Our scan showed us measuring low average - but the Ob reckons we've averaged up a bit.

I was a little worried our baby keeps spinning on it's head and could now be facing spine in (posterior?), but after feeling my belly he reckons we're still spine out.

Still feeling pretty good - except for the regular bouts of heartburn.

Definitely scared about the 'time' coming up - but figure it'll follow it's own course and drag me along with it.

In case you're wondering, Star and I still catch up - and she is very excited.

Far out - what a time - I look back and can't believe where we are. I also can't believe we've got here with so little fuss.

Next update - could be an interesting one.

I am so excited for you - treat yourself to a pedicure with your time off.

I'm glad that the pregnancy has gone so well and I am sure that the delivery will go smoothly.

all the best,

Lunch? Bake muffins?

I can't wait to quit working! It's too hectic!

A somewhat smaller baby should make for a somewhat easier delivery, right? Good to hear your baby is in the right position for it. :-)
