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.

Has been made...

We will be doing another cycle with Star at the new clinic.

Our blood tests are updated, files transferred ... working on Star's ... phone consult with Star to happen next week. Bunch of other stuff, consent forms, possibly more counselling [yawn].

Not many other details at the moment - other than we hope we do the cycle before the end of the year.

This feels like the right thing to do, I guess some people might not agree, but it just would not be possible to cycle again at the same clinic, we have to change something.

As usual it's not exactly straight forward, but we'll get there.

I'm excited.

Change something, I get that line of thinking.
It's good that it feels like the right thing to do, that's worth a lot.

So glad you have Star in this with you. Hoping the change is the thing that will make the difference.

Hello my dear - sorry only just seen your 'decision' - pleased you are getting back on the horse.

Are you doing it with Sydney IVF?

Hope all is going well.
