The ART of relaxation..

It hasn't escaped me that the one thing that pisses me off mightily is that some fertile friends have said to me ad nauseum 'it will happen when you relax' and one of the things that I am hopeful about on this cycle is that the fact that I have almost a month off work and a week in relaxed Thailand will give me the positive result that we have been dreaming of!!

Well, we are here and it is absolutely divine! We got in at 5:30am Bangkok time and a rep from the clinic picked us up from the airport. Unfortunately we had to wait for a couple of hours before our room was ready and that was excrutiating and how - I was pretty exhausted though the flight was absolutely fine though a little turbulant.

We finally got in to the room (which is fabulous!) and had a clean up and a nap before heading out to explore, have lunch and have our first Thai massage. I tell you, we are living the high life here, it is wonderful!!

Tomorrow is our donor's egg collection and JourneyMan's retrieval - I am very excited - will let you know how it went tomorrow!


  1. How very exciting! I've mostly lurked reading your posts, but I just had to wish you all the best of luck on this cycle. It is quite nice doing an IVF Holiday. I hope you get a fantastic fert report and a smooth transfer!

  2. I can't even begin to describe how infuriating it is when someone tells me to relax. It's also a little bit insulting because to me it insuates that I have some control over whether or not I get pregnant...

    So glad to hear things are going well so far. Thanks for the update!

  3. oh man, I am so jealous!! I hope you take every moment of joy and wonder that Thailand can offer.
    And, my friend, we are on the same schedule - Donor has retrieval tomorrow

    Oh please describe what its like over there, I have always dreamt of going.

    Oh AND GOOD LUCK!!!!!

  4. So glad Thailand is going well so far - it is supposed to be super cold here tonight (Midwest U.S.) so I am very jealous. I'm sending good thoughts for everything to go well tomorrow!

  5. Glad to hear you got there safely. I hope the retrievals go well and that they yield highly positive results. Enjoy seeing more of the sights!

    Thinking of you. *hugs*
