Out of the closet

I've been a little worried about how I'm going to combine ET, probably next Monday or Tuesday with the major 2-day meeting I'm running next Tuesday and Wednesday for the CEO and senior leadership team to develop our detailed plan for 2011.  I have a great team who will in fact be doing most of the work to lead the meeting over the 2 days but I...

So here we are in Australia!  I started writing this entry from my hotel room bed where I had a stunning view of Sydney Opera House and the harbour.  We went at short notice, just for a week, because one of my oldest friends has had a recurrence of her breast cancer and I really wanted to visit her and support her through a round of chemo.  It was a g...


I am a verb

I read an interview with Stephen Fry recently where he said:"We are not nouns, we are verbs. I am not a thing an actor, a writer I am a person who does things I write, I act and I never know what I am going to do next. I think you can be imprisoned if you think of yourself as a noun."And I realized how relevant that is to my world view, my...

For the first time ever since we started TTC in April 2008, it is not the center of my universe.  Our next go on the merry go round will be a FET in September and in the meantime there's nothing to do but stay healthy and wait.  Luckily, we are getting married in October (10-10-10, chosen a couple of years ago as a lucky date) and since until a few we...


The First Cut is the Deepest

Week 1 of stims down, just waiting to hear from the clinic if I stay on the same dosage or increase it.  It's been an incredibly productive week and things are on an even keel at work and at home.  Good times!I'm hopeful about this cycle, but realistic, too.  We were lucky with our first fresh cycle and maybe will be again but you never know a...

Spotting! Yay!  Who'd have thought I'd ever have that reaction to AF arriving?  Last night DH had to be the one to say oh, what a shame it didn't work out this month.  Whatever . LOL.I on the other hand am in a fantastic mood because now we can do this thing: big guns, nuclear option, obliteration of the enemy, no prisoners, march to v...


Reality check

Warning: contains disturbing storyI follow quite a few different blogs covering IF, TTC and pregnancy but I vary them over time, adding subtracting and re-ordering them as the blog - and my own TTC journey - develops. Before I was successful getting pregnant I found it heartening to follow others as their quest to conceive became a pregnancy - which was n...


I have seen inside my uterus....and it was good

And weird.  I felt like we were miniaturized people on a spaceship journey inside my body.   All was pink and cavelike and smooth with nothing particularly odd to see.  We could see the entrance to both tubes and also got to see my cervix which looked exactly like the diagrams in the books.   So an office laproscopy turns out to not be too bad at all, at...
