I felt so much better after having the conversation with DH. He is so worried about all the money we are spending on IF. I get it, I do. The good news is I have some money saved and some insurance money we can put against this last DE try. It will bring the actual costs right down.
It is a glorious autumn day today. I love days like these. They remind me of why I came to the US in the first place. I love weather. Hot, sunny, cold, snowy. Just can't stand rain (hey I grew up in the UK, can you blame me!). According to the farmers almanac it is supposed to be a very snowy winter. Hope so. It's still too early to see myself preggers this winter. Maybe that will come later.
My mother has yet another IF suggestion. This time it is based on not eating wheat, drinking coffee, no sugar, etc... Yeah ok, Ma. Haven't told her that we have given up on my eggs. I have told her that we are trying another IVF in December "one last try" so I should expect mucho suggestions. She has no faith in western medicine and all faith in anything remotely alternative. I don't blame her, she has had some horrendous experiences with the docs, particularly around pregnancy and childbirth. Needless to say I listen and contemplate. If we do get preggers then I shall say that I followed her advice.
On Saturday I am in the Parade. My costume - well I think it is a zombie sea creature.I have a black shift dress covered in sparkle with purple gloves and a hat with white flower things. My make up is purple and gold I believe. No idea where this comes from or what it means - I am there as my DH camera assistant. He has a rather snazzy dress and a very long green hat that is so phallic I chocked on my tea when he first put it on. I mean VERY phallic. VERY VERY phallic.
Oh the irony.
