Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone:

I have not been on for quite a while but thought I would start posting since I seem to be checking the boards lately. After 7 surgeries and 4 invitros I am now 33 weeks pregnant with a little girl. Our C-section is scheduled for April 24th.

In January we moved from CT to the UK. So this is why I have not been posting. There has been a lot on my plate. I am not working for the first time in 30 years. Wow... a lot of changes.

Things are different in the UK. You see midwives instead of Drs. Since I am having a c-section I got to meet my Dr. once, and won't see him again until the C-section. Also things take longer here. I had my blood drawn for thyroid (which I have to monitor) and they tell me it will be 10 days before the results come back. In the states I always had the info the next day. Also they don't use gloves when taking blood and they don't put alcholol on before they stick you. Wow. I think there might be someone on this message board from the UK. Is it Haley? What are your thoughts on this? Maybe it's just what you are used to.

Everyone here has been very nice and I am looking forward to this adventure for the next few years. The area we live in is 2 blocks from the water with beautiful walks that I can't wait to take advantage of.

Me.... I am very uncomfortable. It takes me 4 hours to get to sleep each night because of acid reflux. I have found a trick though. If I get up , eat breakfast, take a bath, then go back to bed until noon, I seem to be able to sleep fine. I don't know why I can sleep in the morning but it works.

It's been nice reading everyones posts. It's nice to see that everyone is coming along even though I know some have had some real challenges. This is the only time I have been glad I am not having twins, which I really wanted.

Talk to you again soon.
