I'm Ready....

Holy cow, it is only 9 days until we go to Thailand!! I am feeling that it is a little surreal at the moment, kind of in a holding pattern because everything is pretty much organized. The house is also feeling really like a home, more than it has in the 3 years that we have lived here. Most of the house has been spring cleaned and everything has a place that it lives and I have now put up pictures and photo’s and prints. I have gotten some cushions for the couch and just really organized everything. Every time I walk through the door I smile and it has really become a nice haven.

We do have a big problem with our courtyard, it is a total jungle out there but thankfully JourneyMan finishes work this Wednesday so he has a week to do a bit of work out there to whip it into shape. Basically it is just some weeding and stuff, hopefully I will be pregnant next year and won’t have to divert all our money for another cycle so we can spend a little bit of money getting a deck for the back yard and a new kitchen – then the house will be perfecto!

I think that the overriding feeling that I do have is that I am ready now. The house is almost ready, JourneyMan and I are at a good place in our relationship, we are both going well in our jobs, we are ready. It’s time for our baby to come now. Now, I have thought that before but I do feel it right to my heart right now.

It has been a really good weekend. I had my Mum and sister and two of her boys over on Friday for lunch. My sister brought around a gorgeous cot and a big bag of baby clothes that we could have. When she first told me that she could bring all the stuff around (after I let her know that we had gotten the room ready for the baby), I freaked out a bit. I wasn’t sure that it was a good idea to have all of the stuff in the house, I mean what if the cycle in Thailand is negative. Over time though, I have decided that regardless of how, we are going to have a baby so the room will be beautiful.

So when she brought over the cot and the clothes, I was quite excited and happy to put them in the room. I showed JourneyMan when he got home from work and then it was his turn to freak out a bit. He has recovered over the weekend and we even went to the shops today and got some stickers to decorate the room. The room now cannot be mistaken for anything else but a baby’s room – it makes me smile every time I go in there.
I have even posted some photo’s for you all!

Hope you like them. It is really countdown time now! In other news, I am continuing with the Progynova (estradiol) 3 times a day and there haven't been too many side affects apart from wicked bloating and a number of headaches. I have also started the Clexane (blood thinner) injections - have been doing them since we left for Perth and forgot to tell you. You know, they are definitely not as bad as I remembered - I guess one of the perks of doing IVF is how used to injections that I have gotten!
Anyway, that is all the news for right now. We are off into our last full week before we head off, I am SOOOO excited!!


  1. I am soooooo excited for you too! We are definitely both off on big adventures! The baby's room looks so cute and your attitude about it is great too! Will you be blogging from Thailand? I hope so! Your house sounds wonderful. Sending lots of bon voyage and baby vibes to you:)

  2. I think decorating the nursery will bring you good vibes and karma for the cycle. I love it! I can't believe how close you are. It feels like it has been ages, yet it seems like the blink of an eye. I am so glad everything in your life is in a good place. Those vibes will definitely be beneficial for your cycle. I'm sending some good vibes your way as well.


  3. Hey, I'm an American citizen thinking about going to thailand for IVF because its too expensive here in the states and my insurance doesn't cover any of it. Anyways, I was wondering what is the name of the clinic you are using and if they work with Americans?

    Also, I don't mean to sound racist but if your not Asian, why are you going to Thailand (an Asian country) for a donor that doesn't look like you? I'm just wondering because in the US, most people want donors that look like them so we don't have to tell everyone we're using donor eggs.
