Czech Please!

Sorry for being so cheesy. I think I've basically decided to go through Czech - Brno to do the DE-IVF. I just feel better about it for some reason. I went to acupuncture today and had a big ole chat with Dr. W about our plans. I detailed the pros and cons of each place and ultimately feel like I came to a decision. I haven't even talked to H. about this yet.

The big thing for me was that in going with Czech I don't get to pick the donor. At first I saw this as a huge draw back, but as I think about it, it really is a bonus. I don't have to have the pressure of "did I pick the right one". I dont' have to have any of that stress.

We go back to the bank on Saturday and we'll be filling out all of the paperwork for a loan. We already know we'll get it, but I'll wait for the official approval before taking the next step towards getting the ball rolling. I have found a site run by a couple that act as the liaison between us and the clinic in Brno. I am going to ask for some referrals to chat with and then based on that move forward. Hopefully, we'll be cycling by the end of February or earl March.

On a different note, a friend of mine has recently been on a rollercoaster ride with her latest IVF with it ending in miscarriage. If you're reading this, you know who you are, send big hugs and much love to you. What a shitty outcome you've had, but I have hope for you in the future. Hugs.

Are you going through IVF Vacations? I heard about them on the radio and would love to read about your experiences with them first hand. Good luck to you.

Congrats on your fine decision! And go ahead and be cheesy! Your toddler will ADORE and giggle their chubby cheeks off at your cheesy sense of humour! So cheese away! :-)

Congrats on making up your mind! Amazing how just talking through pros and cons of each will help to clarify your thoughts. I've heard of quite a few DE-IVF successes through a couple Czech clinics, so I'm sure you'll be in good hands. Hope your DH agrees with the choice!

Congrats on making a decision for which clinic to go with. How did the conversation with you DH go about it? I am so excited for you guys and cheering you on!
You are an awesome person and an amazing friend!

Do you know BeeCee's blog, Definition of Insanity? She did DE in Czech and is currently pg.

I know it's a tough process, but I'm glad you are finding hope in moving forward. Hope your DH will be on the same page.
