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.

What Next?

The question is 'what do I do with my blog'?
Posted by Picasa

Essentially this is no longer an infertility blog, I've crossed over to the side I never thought I'd get to. I also have no intention of writing a baby blog.

Needless to say I have had the same issues with breastfeeding etc., but have arrived at a place I am happy with. Others have written about this better - and reading thru the comments they've received has helped me enormously.

But ... our journey continues. We have decided we'd like a sibling for BabyG.

Apologies for not publishing her name, but the conumdrum with choosing a name that would seem to be reasonably unique, living in Sydney is that I'm worried we are easily identifiable. This blog is still very private and no one in my RL (apart from Mr. S) know that I write it.

So my blog stays focussed on infertility - but on how we will achieve adding to our family.

We have nothing in the freezer from our cycle with Star so this is where the challenge begins.

Star and I are still very much in contact - but she is moving overseas. At the time of our cycle I was open with her that I'd like more than one child. When we thought our cycle was kaput she was prepared to go again.

Now her life has changed and we haven't revisited this topic.

Oh yes, then there's Mr. S. Whenever we discussed this in the past he was always sure he'd be happy with one. All the way thru my pregnancy and even up to a couple of days before the birth. Yesterday when we talked about it - he said he'd love us to continue on. They say that women are the great mystery! I'm joking it's obvious to me, and I think that's why I never panicked - our experience has been so positive and he is almost staggered by how much he loves BabyG - men really are no mystery they just seem to need to experience everything.

Our first step will be to talk to Star. We're also going to reactivate our files in the overseas program we were in.

More later.

She's beautiful. So exciting that you are already thinking of trying again. Wishing you all the best.

Gorgeous girl, and what a lot of hair! Delighted to hear that you're both in the same place re trying again although boy it's early days, huh?

My husband surprised me as well, he was never too keen to start trying in the first place, but then when I did get PG he started talking about siblings as if it were the most natural thing in the world. My position has always been one at a time.

Seems you have plenty to blog about still, unfortunately. I wouldn't mind a glimpse here and there of your life with BabyG, but only insofar as you're willing to share, naturally.

She's a beauty! I'm looking forward to hearing about your journey for #2.
