I really really shouldn't leave it so long before replying !!! So much back tracking to do aggghhh
Thank you all for the lovely message of congratulations .....still really can't believe it!!
Yes I think the Mikado is reasonable, we ended up paying a fortune as there was a conference on over the week we were there with 20,000 people decending on and taking up rooms. It was really hard even to get one, never mind at a reasonble price.
Yes we did the red route on the hop on hop off bus ... it gave us a good rounded view of the whole city. I had been to Barcelona before mostly seeing all the Gaudi stuff, but DP had never been, the past two trips felt like a different experience as we stayed in different neighbourhoods each time. This is probably too late to post now, but you can get to Sagrada Familia really easily by metro, you literally come out of the metro stn and it's in front of you.
Yes the Sarria area is amazing, you don't feel like you are in the centre of Barcelona at all. Yes Bar Thomas is renowned for it's patatas bravas, but I never got to try them!
Glad to hear your ET went well, you're very brave going by yourself, congratulations on being PUPO and good luck on the dreaded 2wwErika 74
Welcome, and you really couldn't have chosen a better clinic, the service they offer is second to none, but what really makes the difference to me is the personal touch from Maria and Romana etc, they make you feel cared for every step of the way and they are there for you whatever you need.Lillyan
I'm with you on the bullet thing, plane toilets, that must have been difficult! You're right normal people have got no idea what we get up to!!
Good luck with your immune testing, hope it all goes well in March. Good luck with winning the lotto, we could all do with some of it, it's ridiculous the amount we have all spent. I have actually pictured myself winning, I would turn up at a fertilty clinic and just give it to couples who have to pay, cos I know how much pressure trying to get the money together puts on people.Ann13
I hope you figure out what to do about the promotion .... it's so hard people don't realise that your life is in limbo, we wanted a baby 6 years ago, since then, we have postponed our extension, our wedding, offer of a job in private industry and many holidays. Other people must wonder where your money goes ..... or why you're not moving forward with your life... it's so difficult. As Bopeep says, it struck a chord, I think it would with most of us on here. Good luck with whatever you decide, hopefully if you have been there a long time and they value you, they will support you.Spuds
Yes by stork would be so much simpler for all of us!! Glad you found out where AF had gone ..... good job Dr O knows what he's doing .... not a cyst .... a follicle! Good luck with AF coming soon.
You're so right Maria is definitely the best person for keeping you sane, I can definitely vouch for that!
Congratulations!! on your BFP .... so happy for you!!
I don't know about you, but it hasn't sunk in yet, the same as you, we have been trying for 6 years and can't really believe we have got a BFP
Oh you must have picked up the "avo" from the Kiwis then? I never got to go there but it looks amazing, spent a year in Oz, went back for my godmother's wedding and ended up staying a year. Re: the boobs, mine too are massive, but more noticibly heavier!!! all these bloody hormonesPassenger 42
Good luck for next month!! Glad you've got the money together, hope you got alot for your beloved Mulberry bag, we have sold everything that is not nailed down on ebay, we have made quite a bit, but it's hard work.
I wish I could have popped to your London clinic £40 that is unbelievable! I had to pay £150 and I must have only been in there about 2 mins (including taking my clothes off!!)Zaffa
No didn't let BCN about my crazy symptons in 2ww, it was on a sunday, so I was just left with DP to go out of my mind!! Thanks for all the recent info, it's been great to share. So good to hear your 10 week scan went well .... you must have been over the moon seeing your bean. You are so right about the wedding, I think we all know where you're coming from, if you were not pregnant, I think you would have been well within your rights to ask to move tables!!
Yes getting sick of these pessaries, but much better in a colder climate .... melt central in a hot country .... yuk Bopeep
I know it's hard, really don't give up, this is such a great clinic, and look at all the BFPs on this thread now .... I really didn't think it would ever happen to us. It really is worth trying again, we did the shared risk and we are really happy we did. If you get something planned, at least you know what you're doing, so take a little time to think it through, the best of luck with whatever you do.
Thinking of you and sending you lots of CKMW
Congratuations on your BFP,
:)I bet you are in shock!! Best of luck with it all, keep us updated. GP didn't do blood test for me, she said there was no need, as I'd now done 3 HPTs!! Not that I'm paranoid or anythingHope ND
Thanks for the congrats and thanks for popping in, please don't lose heart, we are here to listen, so you get back on here and have good moan, cos it is really crap sometimes, and it's good to have a good rant to the people who understandCruicky
Hope your test results give you some answers, so you can plan your next move
I'm good, don't think it has really sunk in!! Nearly in tears 2 days ago, brownish red spotting whilst in work .... couldn't concentrate, phoned Maria in mild panic, she soon calmed me down (she is fantastic) I just thought here we go again, AF coming, but Maria said cos 2 bullets now it can cause irritation of the cervix, omg!! how panicked was I. So changed to "back door" and it has pretty much stopped. They were exactly right, as soon as I changed, it went to a small amount and dark brown. Thought I'd put this on here to stop someone else from panicking if it happens to them.
Not had a HCG or a scan (all of you seem so orgnised on how to plan this) saw GP this morning to try and get progynova and bullets, but it proved difficult, but after another trip back there after work, I have got a px to tide me over ...... well when the pharmacy orders some, so can get them tomorow, I run out at 3pm tomorrow, nothing like getting close to the wire
Not sure what to do about a scan, my get one done at a 3D clinic as they are 1/2 the price of the hospital! Otherwise I will have to wait until 10 weeks scan, don't think I could wait that long not knowing if everything is alright, also whether 1 or 2 sacs
Got my first appointment with midwife on 17th that DH made for me on the day of the OTD!!
Good luck to all on the thread, love and
