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.

Flying Baby

Currently Mr. S, BabyG and I are all on holiday.

We decided that since I will not be elligible for Annual Leave when I return to work, that we should do it before.

I've decided that IF is the best preparation for having a baby, since every story you hear about the nightmares with baby's never comes close to the nightmare of IF.

I recently explained to a relative - that since we had to put so much effort into having a baby, I lived with virtually 2 full-time jobs for years, now that we have BabyG - we're doing things a little more instinctively. It works for us, but apparently for some - we should schedule her sleep times. You know what? She sleeps well and we really don't resent her being up with us past 8 pm. I figure we'll get to her bed 'time' down the track.

Also - air travel with a baby is no more difficult that .... ummmm ... air travel in general.

I also think I may have news on cycling with Star again - nothing concrete yet - but we're looking at second half of the year ... more to come.

On returning to work ... currently no childcare - but looking at June. In other words, it's got to move up the priority list when we return from holiday.
