Blogging how I love thee, let me count the ways ....
I am at my sisters house in North Bondi, having a rockin time. I stayed at my other sisters house in Coogee last week - spreading myself around. (They are identical twins. We all share the same raucous laugh and filthy humour. Crazy shit.)
I just caught up on everyones blogs. Beautiful Mony has made it thru the other side of a NT scan and amnio - Cabbage Patch kids rock! Welcome back Von! Vee's beta numbers are FANTASTIC, YAY VEE!! Imy and her hubbie David both made films - hilarious! (Try it - so so fun and easy. Link in my sidebar). Akeeyu, Dawn, and Ultimate Journey - their pee sticks are bringing great tidings, from across the baby divide!!
I love feeling connected to such a diverse, funny, heartachingly honest bunch of women. Connected - that's why I began my journey into blogland. So when AF arrives (next week!!) and I go on BCP for the first time since I was 20, I know a little of what to expect. Everything I'm about to go through - by reading all of your insightful and heartfelt experiences, I know a bit of what to expect. (Stims, shots, blood tests, etc.) The not-knowing scares the bejeesus outta me. We live in a world where we (westerners, anyway) have a great deal of control. But here in the IVF/IF world, a whole lot can happen that's not up to us. But oh, the joy of having a baby at the end of it!!! Also - I LOVE reading pregnant blogs. Apart from being genuinely happy for those that have made it over to the other side ....they give me hope, makes me feel excited that maybe, maybe, it's going to happen to me too.
So, in conclusion, I love Bondi, Blogs, and Ballsy Women. Oh, by the way - can someone tell me - do you really have to put your legs in stirrups?? (Please say no please say no ....)
