Weather warnings... ⚠️

Weather warnings... ⚠️

Well now; did I mention we’d had quite a week? I’d got really hacked off at the weatherman last week for not warning us about bad news coming and now the weather has decided to dump a load of snow... making it impossible for us to get anywhere.

The dumping of snow also brought news of our egg collection which took place yesterday. Our donors eggs were split between two couples. 10 to one and 12 to us. 9/10 fertilised for the other couple and 0/12 fertilised for us! What a shocker! Was not expecting that at all!

So now we have only one route our consultant wants us to take. A fresh cycle. Fresh sperm. Because they aren’t sure if there’s an issue with this batch etc. Mr Emu has been advised to take some drugs and have tonnes more sex. He’s literally just missing rock n roll from his life.

Our new fresh cycle won’t cost us any more money; which is amazing if you ask me... and you might remember that I accidentally booked the wrong flights and had to extend... “what’s £300 more” claimed Yorkshire born Mr Emu... as he told me “things happen for a reason” ... and now we need those extra days! Crazy. It also means I get to lounge in the sun and swim in the sea before transfer. I love the sun. I love the snow.

So screw you Mr Weatherman. We’ll deal with whatever weather you throw at us. My mother in law has had chocolate cake and here’s Mr Emu dragging my sledge through the park this morning! X

oh that’s such a shitter. wishing you all the very best for your fresh cycle.

forgive the stupid question, but why don’t they split donor eggs after fertilization? surely that’s fairer?

sending positive vibes ✨

p.s ❤️ your posts

We’re using our own sperm, so we need the eggs before they can be fertilised. xx

That is quite the shocker. But you never know it may be meant to work like this and when you have your BFP you will be glad it went this way. Wishing you lots and lots of luck xxx

My last round I was 3 weeks late (which never happens) and it put back our transfer. I was in such a panic over it but I got my BFP and I'm convinced that it worked out the way it was meant to. I will keep everything crossed for you 🤞🏻 Xxx

Think happy thoughts. Think happy thoughts. Yes. I know... I must!

Too busy sledging to make a snowman!

How’s that little embryo doing? Day 3 tomorrow? x

It's doing well so far I was sooo nervous this morning, I felt sooo sick. Hoping it survives the night and that it's a strong little fighter. Nothing's ever simple. 😁 On a funny note though I have discovered what love is .... love is when your husband rubs your back whilst you try to take a 💩 coz the meds make you sooo constipated 😂😂😂

I really do feel for you youve been such a massive support on here for everyone. Where about are u? My parents are in aberdeenshire and it's apparently red warning alerts xxx

Your husband sounds amazing! Mr Emu would be more likely to tell me to get out because he needed to go! 😂😜😂😜 That is true love. Your hubby deserves a medal!

Keeping all fingers and toes crossed for you. You’ll be answering that call so fast tomorrow!

I’m based near Leeds; you? I have friends who are in the red warning zone... they’ve predicted end of the world! x

Reply

😂😂 I'm not gonna tell him about the medal his head may expand slightly 🤣 I'm from a place called Ellon just north of Aberdeen but I'm in Spain at the moment. Is it bad I have nooo idea where Leeds is 🤣🤣 my geography has always been shite.

Mum said the snow is horrific all schools are shut and everyone's been told to stay in xxx

That really sucks but I’m glad the clinic have a plan - rock n roll for you two for the next few months then! Enjoy the snow ⛄️ and look forward to the sun☀️ - sending all the luck your way xxx

Was really sorry to read about this but I am really relieved to see you have a free fresh cycle.

Also, that's an awesome photo. Love your writing.

When will the next fresh cycle be? xx

Reply

Pending us going through with it (Mr Emu’s mum diagnosed with cancer last week) it’ll be injecting from 4 April and egg collection around 7/8 May. I was astonished how amazing the clinic were in supporting us.

Thanks for loving my writing. I really must sort my blinking blog! x

Oh Emu, what an absolute shocker! As if you've both not got enough on your plate with the shitty "weatherman"! Hope you've gotten over your news from yesterday and absolutely delighted that you're being given the opportunity to try again at a freah cycle at no extra cost, that is such a biggie! I think you've got a sixth sense with your planning details....now you can gloat to Mr Emu that in fact you saved him money as you didn't need to cancel and rebook!!😂😂xx

Ps glad to hear mother-in-law has been digging into your chocolate cake....you sound like an awesome daughter-in-law.😗xx
