Happy new year

Seeing as I'm in NZ then I'll be the first of us to say goodbye to 2016 - what a crap year that was for me.

Haven't been on here much lately as been struggling to cope and wanted to ignore the whole IVF issue. Had our trip home which was fab but it was babies and children left right and centre. Even the day we left we ended up meeting our new week old nephew. Can't say I coped with it well to be honest. Kept on thinking I should have been going home 6 months pregnant.

Saw a consultant at the Lister whilst we were home to get a second opinion on whether it is worth us trying again. He feels that it is but our protocol should be changed. He doesn't feel that we have had a good chance with any of our cycles (even the one where we got pregnant) and would expect more eggs. I so wish we could start a cycle with him but we're back to trying to decide where to go on this side of the planet. Gonna leave things until Feb as everything pretty much closes down here in January for the summer.

Here is to a better 2017 for all of us. You guys have been amazing support to me over the past year.
