  1. On our ivf cycle I thought I planned for everything that could happen and tried to be prepard. The day I got the phone call that we didnt have any frozen embryos crushed me. I wonder now if it would have been worse if I didnt try to prepare for it? Preparing and planning is a good thing. I dont think I would change any of that next go around either. We can only do what is in our power and hope the rest falls into place.

    1. It's such a tough one Toni. I think no one really knows how they will react until they're in a certain situation. And with this IF stuff, I think it's best to be informed, so less stuff can shock you (I say less, not all). I hope you're going ok. You've been making some pretty rational decisions which must feel nice to have some control back in your life again :-)

  2. I have a bit of a mug addiction. I just love mugs and I tend to buy them without thinking. I will be at a special place, and they will have a lovely mug and I will think 'what a beautiful, and useful, reminder of this wonderful day'. Then I get home, open the cupboard, and there are a million and one mugs. I nearly brought one yesterday but managed to stop myself in time. I have some which are all round and cozy and my sister calls them hugs. 'Can I have my tea in a hug instead of a mug, Em, please?'

    1. I'm the opposite. I need mugs! Haha. I think I got rid of all my 'teenage' type mugs when I decided to grow up a bit, and I haven't really bought any new ones. We only have 4 mugs in our place (2 plain blue ones which we were given when we first moved to Melbourne and had no money; and 2 Parisian themed ones which I 'passed' as ok from my teenage years). So I'm soooooo looking forward to getting my mug-swap. I love what your sister says about the hug mug!!! That's so sweet.

  3. IVF is a mix of planning, staying positive and being organised mixed with 'letting go and letting God'. It is very very hard to find this balance. Don't be too hard on yourself about anything. You are doing great :-)
