Since the cancellation of E’s first IVF cycle, our life has sort of gone back to ‘normal’, well normal being that E doesn’t have to use the nasal spray every few hours and doesn’t have to attend umpteenth appointments for scans, bloods and bad news.
The cancellation allowed us to refocus back to the holiday we booked several weeks before: our xmas and new year in Thailand.
So, now it’s the night before our flight to Phuket via Bangkok via Dubai from London Heathrow. E has done her online learning for her Padi Open Water and is keen for me to join her, but I’m in two minds- I just want relax and snorkel. (I did my OW in 2008 and have done a couple of refreshers since).
The plan is to redo cycle 1 in late January after E’s next period starts, although post cycle ending, E has been late with her period- maybe she is over suppressed despite not achieving down regulation.
In the meantime, work has been crazy for me with multiple viral illnesses and pre xmas anxieties. This holiday will be a good break from work.
E has been busy too, but also made some connections through two fertility groups we’ve attended and through her increased Twitter presence.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all those in our position or those with kids and hope 2015 is a good year!
