I had my check up yesterday. All looks ok so I will start the treatments again on Thursday but this time with smaller doses which should avoid the LH peak. The plan is also to monitor more often. If I don’t mess things up again I’ll have the egg retrieval at the beginning of May. Fingers crossed!
After the doing the blood tests, the ultrasound and seeing the gynaecologist I basically spent the day going to see friend’s babies. First I went to see a friend who recently had a baby to meet the little one. But she had organised a group visit which didn’t work out so well as it was people who did not know each other and the parents looked tired and grumpy. We saw the baby for about 2 minutes and could hardly ask questions as it was really busy with people.
Then I went to see a friend who is about to move to Germany with her boyfriend and son. It was a bit sad to say goodbye, especially since I’ve done a good share of baby sitting so I’ll miss the little boy. But she somehow made it easier for me by spending 2 hours telling me about all of her friends who just got pregnant, including one who doesn’t know if she wants to keep the baby, one who only realised when she was 5-month into the pregnancy so she couldn’t have an abortion etc. These are people I don’t even know.
The best thing this week has been going to Pink Martini’s concert. I loved it! It totally made my week! I even got a bit emotional and cried when she sang my favourite song:
