Happy 1st of September! For those of you down under, we are finally on the approach to Summer after a long cold winter! I woke up to a beautiful Spring morning here in Wellington and the promise of nicer weather, lighter mornings and longer evenings. BBQ's, breakfast on the deck in the sunshine, the beach, swimming and long leisurely walks. Ooooohhhh - so can't wait! I love Winter but I am definately ready for a bit of warmth and sunshine now! I think I'm going to go brunette when I get my hair done in a few weeks too. A makeover sounds like a great start to the warmer weather and my successful IVF cycle. See, positive thinking! Just a shame it's supposed to rain from tomorrow until next Friday! But that's Wellington weather for you. 

Had a call from the nurse at my clinic today with my 'plan'. I start injecting on the 16th September for down regulation and then egg collection should be scheduled for the week starting 11th October. Seems so soon and yet so far! Fingers crossed the time goes quickly. Thankfully I haven't had any of the nasty side effects I normally get from the pill either. YIPPEE! I'm in a much better place this cycle than I was last (emotionally speaking) so really hopeful for a smooth and easy ride to that BFP!


  1. Hi there, I was just looking at the ICLW (already, I am a loser) and I am one day behind you on the BCPs for my first IVF. Wanted to say hello and send out good energy for some well deserved BFPs!
    I love spring! We will be headed into autumn soon, but right now we are enjoyed some end of summer heat!

  2. Yay! I'm glad you have your plan! I hope the time leading up to retrieval/transfer just flies by and that you are able to relax. I'm keeping everything crossing that this is your lucky cycle!!

  3. yay progress. big fat hugs to you.

  4. Good luck with your cycle!! I'll be checking in and keeping you in my thoughts!

  5. Good luck to you and to Gurlee as well - I am also 1 week into bcp & scheduled for retrieval around Oct 13th. I am hoping that there is good news all around!
