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.

Hope you all have a great holiday! Be sure to tell us all about it when you get back.

We're not scheduling too much either. If our girl rubs her eyes, she's sleepy. If not, she's not.

I'm glad to hear things are going so well with your little girl.
