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.

Long Time

Yes it has been a while ... but you know there's really not much going on here.

BabyG thrives - has been crawling for the last few month and looks to be getting ready to start walking.

I am still on maternity leave - have no idea what to do about work. I'm in a loop - have no childcare - so can't give work a date on when I can return - the childcare centre tells me I should be flexible - but, as I said to them, I currently have no starting point to discuss with work.

Yes I am looking at other places, but in truth we have to find somewhere that works for us - not just anywhere.

Yesterday I saw my RE.

This was the first appointment to begin talking about doing our next cycle.

It's a little overwhelming.

I spoke to Star today, and she's very keen.

Things have changed a little, between our last cycle and this next one. Cost-wise, claimable wise. Not to our advantage. It seems we may have been amongst the luck few to have taken advantage of administrative oversights that have now been corrected.

Cue loop - would be good to be working to help pay for the cycle ... but I haven't got childcare ...

Childcare is in short supply everywhere it seems.

Great to hear BabyG is doing so well.

And how exciting you're thinking of starting again. Good luck!
