Just wanted to log on and tell you how I am getting on and the bonus was I got an update on all your wonderful stories.
Firstly there are a lot of American women coming to my Czech Rep clinic because of the success rate and the cost -3,900 euro for DE IVF. It may sound scarey because it is such a long way away but there is a forum with as much information and support as you could possibley want. Email me if you want further information.
Secondly, I am 17 wks pregnant today! Yeah! The twins are doing fine - still don't know what flavour they are. Have gotten through the 'all day morning sickness period' the clinic took me off all meds at 9 wks because it was so bad and I have never looked back. (By the way I will be 52 when they are born and it is my first pregnancy and my first IVF)
I don't know if with all the hormones that are being released there is a 'feel good' one in there because I feel in a constant state of happiness! Today I caught my image in a mirror as I passed and was delighted to see a respectable bump there - I was beginning to worry I was never going to show! But my mother reassured me she was still wearing her wedding trouseau throughout her first 2 pregnancies!
I agree with the good adivce - find some inner peace and follow what your heart tells you.
