Mali & The real success stories

dear Mali,
I just read your latest post:

and I loved it!!!  I couldn't agree more with you.



Baby girl in Melbourne

I have just seen news on FB: a friend of mine just had a baby girl. I am really happy for her & sad for me. As always, when a new baby is born.

I met my Aussie friend 11 years ago, when I was working for one month in Germany. We instantly got along and only few weeks later she visited me in Slovenia. After that we met for few times, we always had a great time together.

Also their story was not an easy one.. the baby girl is a miracle baby from their 4th IVF attempt.

One of the nicest invites that I ever got was from this Aussie friend, in autumn, after failed 10th IVF. She invited me & DH to live with them for a month or few months.... if we decided to try luck in the best infertility clinic in Melbourne. Isn't that sweet? I will be always grateful for this invitation.

But I am done with hoping & trying & infertility drugs & IVFs. When we go to Australia (in the next few years), it will be only for holidays.

My sister

I had a nice long Easter weekend despite all the rain (my dog enjoys walks in all kinds of weather). And yesterday I had a visit: my sister and her 2-year-old daughter came for a visit. It was lovely to see them: I missed them both (her daughter is one of the sweetest children I have ever seen).

Here is the news. My sister is highly pregnant, she will have a baby in few weeks. And for the first time since our infertility journey began, I am actually looking forward to a new baby! It really seems that I am on a road to recovery.

To be frank - I am looking forward to the baby. But I still want to avoid all the exciment in the family, all the celebrations etc... so... Asia, here I come :) 
(baby will be born during our holidays)

Injections? No, thank you.

I am glad that we cancelled IVF with egg donation that was already booked for end of April. If we wouldn't cancel it, I would be already on injections, suffering all kind of side effects.

I had 9 normal IVFs and 1 with egg donation and I can tell you that the one with egg donation was the hardest.

Anyway, I am happy that I will be able to enjoy drugfree Spring & Summer.

And I am happy never ever in my life to take any infertility drugs again.
