On my way to the clinic to get my blood drawn for the second time after a lab mixup with 17 of the tubes they drew last time. I'm feeling very fed up today and didn't sleep well last night. There was a huge thunderstorm and I just lay there listening to it passing over. … Continue reading And begin again
Barbados is already feeling like a distant memory. Back in Singapore and back at work. Went to the clinic this morning for my blood tests. Wow - what a process! There were so many tests to be run that they said they couldn't take my blood at the clinic and, after completing the paperwork and … Continue reading Drained…

Today is 7dp5dt. I caved and did a POAS yesterday, BFN. Went out and purchased an early response test, tried it first thing this morning, also BFN. Spent an hour reading stories where BFNs later because BFPs, but I just don't think that's the case for me. This means there is only one frozen embryo … Continue reading Looks like another failed attempt

My big life plan involved marriage at 24, children at 27 and 29, a house with a garden and a pet dog. I don't know where I went off track, but I have achieved NONE of those … Continue reading About me
