- Wedding: June 2011 - Sydney, Australia
Months/Cycles TTC: Since December 2010.
CD/DPO: I forget – IVF is messing with my brain. I’m currently stimming.
Chart (if you would like to share/have one): When I’m off IVF I chart, but not this cycle!
Trying anything different this cycle: We are in IVF #2. I go for my big ultrasound and second blood draw tomorrow morning. Feeling ridiculously full and bloated (& have to go to the loo ALL THE TIME) so I’m hoping this means that higher doses of stimming drugs are helping me to make more eggs. Oh PLEASE let me have more eggs than last time!
Favorite dessert: I have SO many favourites! I love lemon meringue pie. I love banana splits with hot chocolate fudge sauce. I love sticky date pudding with caramel/butterscotch. Mmmm. 🙂
Favorite thing about WB: You guys. I never thought I’d stick around after we got married – but coming ‘out’ to the TTC boards about how we’d been trying to have a baby since before the wedding with no luck, well, that was the best thing I could have done. Going through fertility treatments kicks my butt some days, and I couldn’t do it without you all. Thanks for letting me be me, whether I’m in a positive mood, or an ‘I HATE ALL THE WORLD AND THE PREGNANCIES’ kind of mood. I promise I’m not really that hot/cold in real life. (Unless I’m on hormones. Then, you’re all fair game.) xxx
@cafegirl: Well, I will admit that my pooch is never little (even on a good day, I carry lots of tummy weight) but it’s certainly not big enough to warrant the ‘You must be heading off work soon!’. I DON’T LOOK FULL TERM LADY.
Yes, I’ve gained SO much knowledge about how to be helpful/tactful, etc.
Yah, it’s a constant reminder of yep… not pregnant yet, but HUGE anyway. Thanks!
Agreed. I’d rather say nothing & have them mention it in conversation DIRECTLY to me, before I’ll comment. Just to be safe!
That’s exactly why I’m avoiding family gatherings at all costs!!!!
Oh, living in the mountains sounds like a dream come true. 🙂
