IVF and RA

I am so sorry I 've been away for so long.

(apart from that little mad West Wing post- if you haven't watched it YOU MUST)

I really, really am. I've missed my little therapy sessions telling you my worries and stresses and all the good shit that goes along too.

As the post title suggests- IVF is on the cards. Boy is it on the cards.

We went to a lecture last night. The Calderdale hospital lecture theatre was FULL. I didn't realise so many people would also be about to go through this. It's a scary process, including 4 weeks of injections (but being the first person to ask a question last night and it being about the needles and our specialist explaining everything so well, I am a little less scared of them now. A little. A tiny bit less. Being neeedlephobic SUCKS. But I HAVE to cope. Else we don't get a baby.)

My employers have been good. Days off for hospital appointments as requested, not just for me and the hubs for the IVF stuff, but for the hubs and his recent diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis. quite bad RA tbh.

My birthday is looming. In my Grand Plan I always imagined I would have 2 kids by the age of 30 and another 2 shortly after, but i'm 29 in 4 days and if the first cycle of IVF works I could end up with a really large belly cooking a baby for my 30th birthday. I really, really hope that happens. Keep your fingers crossed for me? Please?
