Way to go girl! I really hope everything goes great with you this time! You really deserve this to work! ...I LOVE cooking in my kitchen
and I will definitely try making your cookies. Even though I only made cookies once I will try yours! I Love cooking meals mostly and then cakes and sweets but I am not into cookies...so far...I made this apple/berries pie two days ago and it was amazing. Actually I did a combination of two recipes and mine came up.
I served it with vanilla ice-cream on the side...no words!...my DH ate the last bite this morning before he left for work...maybe I make those cookies today and let you know tomorrow how it went....OUao! MA in forensic pysch! I am impress girl!

About the “Big Fat Greek wedding”
...my parents live like 5min with the car from my place and my MIL lives 15min with the car from my place. Also most of my friends are average 20min away . I live in a small island with only 700.000 people and distances are not big. But even though my family is close is not that we meet every day. Actually my family visit us only when invited or they call sometimes if OK to come over. they know we like to have our privacy...We like to see our family once a week but if we arrange something else then no big deal. We see them when we see them.
We are a close family in general and always have fun in our gatherings so we don’t feel “bad” meeting with them. I believe that no matter how close your family is to you is up to you to decide how much you see them and how involved they are in your life. The secret is to be close but far enough if u understant what I am saying...
...i could never imagine living all under the same roof, that would drive me nuts! so I guess is good that they live close enought so that they dont stay the night over...
About IVF, I told my mom just the highlights and she is not that kind of person that will share my personal life with others, relatives or not i made that clear with her long time ago that what ever I share with her stays between us and not something that she can share with others. So is all good! you should tell that to your mom also to staight things up just in case you find your self in the situation where u need to tell her...love your photos btw!
is that your house at the back round? beautiful!
- sorry I can’t answer your question since I ‘ve never had any issues with my E2 levels but I wish you Good luck!
Congrats on your pregnancy mama!!!
I Don’t remember if I already congratulate you so I thought doing it again. Keep up the good work, take it easy and I can’t wait for your U/s!
– I am so glad you went back to work! And that you are making plans for your career. Taking a break isn’t as bad as it sounds! As you know I am on a break from IVF too (I like to believe...) and things are home never been better! DH and I talk about everything but IVF. Last night we opened a bottle of wine and I prepared a cheese and crackers on the side...the 1 bottle became 1 1/2
We just spend the night listening to our favourite music starting with U2 following Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen and talked and talked and laugh...maybe we got a bit tipsy but it was SO nice! Besides, we had no driving to do, just walk up the stairs to our bedroom.
To tell or not to tell and to whom to tell is up to yours and DH’s mood at that time. There have been cycles that we told both friends and family, and when I say family I mean only close family, my parents, my brother, my MIL and SIL. thats it. Some other cycles we chose to tell no one. It all depends on how we felt at that moment. Telling can be both good and bad. ...I thought of egg donor too but is difficult to persuade DH on that. it is legal in my country. Anyway, for the moment we still have other options to consider, I leave ED as our last card. Good luck with everything dear!
- Your workshops sounds very interesting! Keep up the good work! and Good luck with everything!
Welcome to our board my friend!

I am IN for the recipe swap!!!!!
Who said us girls only do needles! We do some serious cooking too!!!!
AFM- I went for the second job interview yesterday it went great! They will answer me by Friday if I got the job. It was an amazing interview and I believe that I nailed it! we’ll see... I am looking forward to get back to work and this is the perfect job and the perfect time for me while being on the IVF break. I will tell you all about the job when I get it. Wish me luck!
Have a nice day everyone! We are alive and we should be grateful for that and also for all the things in our life! DH, family, friends and all the things that we love to have in our lives!
Baby dust and positive vibes to us all!!!! and remember...
