I'm quite behind in reading your updates my friends, I knew this was going to be a week from Hell in work, very long tiring days with zillions of things to do and run to and from. I can't wait for the weekend!

I booked my scans this morning, all bright and early! I should get the official schedule next week.
I also got a reply from the nice lady in the Adoption Board which basically said she couldn't do anything for me until the panel approved our application but she said she forwarded the email to the Social Work Section and that they will reply to my email also. I emailed her back to let her know that I appreciate her support but that I won't hold my breath for the SWS to get back to me as they still have not replied to the email she forwarded on to them for us on the 2nd of December 2009!!

Tomorrow is a big day for my blog friend BB. Her twins will be born! We were cycle buddies last summer, same day ER, same day ET. She is truly amazing, and touched my heart by sending me a beautiful charm. Thank you BB and you'll be an amazing mum, I have everything crossed!

Attic update: our application has been validated and now they have until the 11th of May to make a decision. Basically just after my transfer!! Let's hope at least one thing will go to plan, we can't be too greedy...

Yoga and Goddess Gathering: on tuesday night I went to this Goddess gathering organised by my Yoga teacher. It was really great!! Chanting and connecting with the various chakra, I felt so relaxed afterwards and in tune. Have you ever heard of such a thing as the Goddess gathering? It was the first time for me, it is a bit hippy stile in fairness but I enjoyed it.

Finally, some of you asked me why my clinic doesn't do FET on natural cycles. Well, the true answer is that they like you to be in line with their scheduling and definitely don't want to chance that you may need to go in at weekends. They also say that they got better results on medicated cycles than natural ones but this one to me is more like the "official" version...and by the way, would you not want to try this Viagra at least once? And on prescription after all!!


  1. I think it all sounds have to do what is best for you...(well, maybe what's best for your doctors...)

    Big hugs

  2. I'm so glad that things are moving right along! May will be here soon!!

  3. Never heard of a goddess gathering. I love yoga though! So it sounds fascinating :)

    Good luck with the rest of your hell week. Hang in there!

  4. yay for setting dates for the u/s! Also, hope that the attic change plans go through without a hitch!

  5. Great news all around! When do you start the viagra? You must tell us all about your fun side-effects. ;)

    Only less than 1.5 days until the weekend!

  6. Thanks my dear! I so wish we had gone through the whole journey together! But, I have faith that you will be on this path pretty soon! I will be thinking of you... I am glad you have all the dates set up!


  7. I'm so curious about the Viagra! (One track mind, Adele. One track mind.)

    So glad your scans are booked and that you're on the cusp of the official schedule. That's great. Poo to the Adoption Board, especially the Social Work Section. That's very frustrating, and I bet you're not the only one thwarted by their lack of organization. It isn't fair. It's such an emotional thing to begin with. To make things more complicated, more fraught...just doesn't seem right.

    The Goddess Gathering sounds great. I should check one out as I seem to have misplaced my inner goddess somewhere:)

  8. yeah! everything seems to be getting ready for you. i am so excited and so praying for this time to be the one. have a great weekend and you are always in my thoughts fran. xoxoxox

  9. Hi Fran,
    Thank you so much for the thoughtful comment you left me. I really appreciate it. I've done a pretty good job not gettin stressed out about this half cycle, but yesterday just got the best of me. Today is much better. I don't know where I'd be without my blog and the support I get from it. It's the one time I seem to be able to talk about myself. LOL!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm really hoping this next FET is the one for you. April 26th is my birthday so I'm feeling good about your appt on that day!

    The Goddess Gathering sounds like quite an experience. I'm going to a weekend yoga retreat next month and am so very excited.


Thank you so much for stopping by, your comments warm my heart!
