We are slowly gearing up for this last IVF cycle. Murray is on school holidays for the next two weeks, and I had a day of annual leave which was fortuitous because I have had a nasty cold or flu bug this last couple of days.
We went to the clinic this morning and Murray gave his second sperm sample for use in IVF, and I picked up all my medications. It's all starting to get very real.
Our pastor prayed for us today about us having children. We were meeting to formally become members of our new church that we have been attending this past year since we moved house, and one of the things we talked about was what a blessing it has been for Murray and I to have had 12 years together, 10 married, to build our relationship before kids have arrived. While parts of this have been awful and depressing, in the light days, I can see that there are also benefits, and I am grateful for those.
