…Next cycle is in about 6 days.
Ok…. It is with some considerable apprehension that we face the drawing closer of the ‘next round’. Factors to consider: we have endured a week-long round trip to the UK and back (and hideous jetlag); a very crabby, immobile mother/ mother-in-law staying for a month, complaining the whole time about how awful condos are; the country is up to its eyes in river water (and all the muck it has picked up on it’s merry way). As a result of all these not-inconsiderable strains, my darling and i have been having more than our usual share of temper tantrums and sulks. Now add to all this that our lovely clinic is currently closed for renovation!!! 😦 This means our doc is operating out of the Bangkok Christian Hospital. This is not exactly inspiring; in uber-conservative thailand this makes me think of the pope /evangelists and other gay-disparaging branches of the religion. AND there’s more! He isn’t even here at our predicted /scheduled insemination time, so we will be dealing with strangers in a strange place (which charges more for its services, too!).
I expect we will go ahead anyway (assuming we are not sperm-blocked by the hospital!), but I don’t hold out too much hope. On the plus side, I have really enjoyed my month off, and I have indulged in some delicious pregnancy no-nos. I suppose it’s about time I started thinking about laying off the coffee again…. Tomorrow I am off to volunteer for the red cross, to hand out flood relief supplies. Good job I’m not pregnant yet – it would be hard to make myself useful lifting boxes and sacks if I was!
