It has been an eventful few days! Let me go back to the beginning....
I worked on Thursday and was pretty busy in the morning but left at lunch time so that I could spend the afternoon with JBB. I picked him up from daycare and we went and had some lunch with his Nanna and a friend of hers at a cafe near home that has a playground. I wanted to really spend some quality time with him because I wasn't going to see him for 10 days, such a wrench!! We had a lovely lunch and good play in the playground but we headed home because he hadn't had his afternoon sleep and he was super tired.
While he was asleep, I was able to finish off the last minute packing and got a head start on dinner. He woke up pretty grumpy but there was a big thunderstorm so we had a great time listening to the thunder and seeing the lightening. He would say 'sunder, mummy' and then give me a big hug, we wiled away the afternoon doing this. It was so nice to spend the afternoon with him, especially because he was in a very affectionate mood.
Once JourneyMan got home, we had dinner and got JBB ready for bed, he was staying at my Mum's for the night while JourneyMan took us to the airport. JBB was such a darling he went to bed very easily (after being hugged to within an inch of his life) and we had a cup of tea and then went to pick up my bestie on the way to the airport. After saying goodbye to JourneyMan (I miss him!!), we checked in and after being up since 5am, we boarded the plane at 11pm - I was shattered.
The flight was not too bad, I slept most of the time but there was quite a bit of turbulence. I don't mind those overnight flights from Melbourne to Bangkok, I don't really like spending a whole day on a flight I would much prefer to spend a night. We arrived at the hotel at about 7am and were hoping that they would allow us to check in early, which they did. Thank goodness too - we were sooooo tired and I also wanted to freshen up and change because I had the appointment at the clinic at 11am, no-one wants someone looking up their lady bits when you have been on a plane for 9 hours - belch!!
The clinic visit was a good one, my lining measured 11mm which is way better than the last 2 cycles, my oestrogen was excellent and my progesterone was pretty good. I am now on 2 forms of oral progesterone as well as the Crin.one suppositories - hopefully that will work well. The doctor is also flying out to Japan so the transfer has been moved up a day to Tuesday, hopefully the 5 days post transfer on the trip will help to give a good result this time!!
Since the clinic, it has been all systems go on 'Project R&R' and it has been pretty successful so far. We spent time by the pool in the afternoon and last night I had a nice foot massage (though they did dig in a bit so it also was a bit hurry) and this morning I had a fabulous Thai massage with herbal compresses - hugely relaxing. This was all after a lovely sleep in until 10am - wow, who would have thought that was possible!!
I've also have had 2 great Sk.ype calls with JourneyMan and JBB - it was wonderful to see my boys and JBB seems in very good form - he doesn't seem too upset without me, which I am hugely grateful for. It is so amazing to see him every afternoon while he is getting ready for bed, he tells me what he has done for the day and loves having a chat with my bestie as well!! He is such a cutie, I miss his hugs.
Tonight has been lovely too, we had a nice Thai dinner and then went to the movies - saw the Bourne Legacy, which was okay. I have done my yoga, taken fistfuls of hormones and vitamins and am now preparing for bed. Need to get up super early (4am - week!) tomorrow because we are going on a tour to see the tiger temple (we have breakfast with the monks and feed the baby tigers) and then we give some elephants a bath, it should be a super fun day.
I had better get off to bed so I can enjoy it - night!!
