My fertility specialist has gone on leave for a month. How splendid for him. Probably vacationing in Paris, stuffing his face with cheese and meats that I am forbidden to eat.

This would have been fine had I been told. But no that seemed to have slipped his mind. Don't worry they say, we have a female doctor for you. That's all well and good but she ain't the doctor I spent a month researching.

I'm pissed.

When you start IVF you have the option when it comes to the embryo transfer to have it done at the women's hospital. It is half the costs but there is no guarantee that you will have your doctor! Not have my doctor?! I would rather pay extra to have him. Now I don't get to have him at all. Or I do, I just have to wait another month.

I'm angry.

Why didn't he tell me this at my last appointment with him?!!!! I would have tried with the couple of eggs I had if I knew this was going to happen!

Then when he does come back next month I will be away for the week that I would need to start injections.

So how does May sound for everyone?ive got all the time in the world apparently!


  1. Can't believe he wouldn't tell you when you were there last, pretty irresponsible! On the other hand, you weren't too keen on being in Bali at only a few weeks along so maybe this is a not-good but not-terrible thing? And it won't be a Christmas baby?
    (Still deserves a good kick in the pants, I say!)

    1. You raise good points Kate :) but yes I'm more annoyed about not being told! Just gotta keep my head up! X
