Hello world!

Well like it says, hello world!

This is the second time I have started a blog.  So I guess we will see how we (or should I say I) go.

My husband and I have just moved to the Brisbane area (Australia).  We have been married over 5 years and have been trying to have a baby for just about as long.  We are so very lucky to be one of the ‘chosen’ few that have to do IVF to get that family we so desperatley want.  (you will all soon get use to my sarcasim I’m sure)

We have done 7 cycles of IVF.  Cycle number 5 was a pos.  but we had a m/c at around 5-6 weeks.  And cycle number 6 was the winner for us!  We found out on Melb Cup Day (05)that we were pg.  And until 32 weeks I had the most perfect pregnancy.  I loved every minute of it, that’s until it all turned to shit the day before Mothers Day.  (How ironic)

We started at Lismore Base Hospital, transported to Pindara Private, transported to Southport Hospital (where I delivered our beautiful boy Zak and thats a whole different story) and then transported to Mater Mothers (all in 24 hours)

Somewhere between having a baby and having a baby pass away my husband got to have his birthday.  His first birthday as a Dad.  I’m sure his birthdays will never feel the same again.  And for that I feel truly sick and sorry for him.  But he did get to be a Dad on his birthday.  I guess that’s a small something.


We had some time to ourselves – no IVF for a few months.  Not long enough probably.  But you know what they say ‘ I’m not getting any younger’.  We tried to fit in one more go before Xmas.  The week we moved to another state.  S started a new job.  And just 6 months since we had Zak.  Probably all a little to much at once.  It was a crap cycle from the start so we didn’t have much hope for it.  And that’s a good thing as it was the most crap cycle we have ever done.  Not even one crap embie to pop back in.

So with Christmas fast approaching (yes the Christmas that was suppose to be so different.  The first with a new bub to spoil rotten) we will have to wait till 2007 before we jump back on IVF roller-coaster.

 Im not sure how long it will take to give Zak a brother or sister.  But Im a very determined person and I probably wont give up till I have baby number 2 in my arms.

 We will see I guess.  🙂

    I’ve no idea what your latest Easter blog about BT’s means. But I hope it is good news for you.

    I wish you a little sibling for Zak just as soon as you safely can. (Not religious so I can’t go off down that path, but I do beleive in humanity)

    Best wishes – sincerely.
