Hey! Just wondering if any other members are from Newfoundland? :)

 

As we have to travel for IVF, I figured it would be nice to chat about travelling, accommodations, etc!

Hey!

 

I'm doing better!  Just waiting for the whole process to start. I missed a call from the clinic in Calgary Sunday evening (weird time to call). I have had my phone hugged close ever since.
