Transfer timing and praise for parents.

Transfers happening on Tuesday at 10:30.

So thankful to God!

We have had a lovely time at my cousins wedding, particularly having time with my parents. I don't think I've had much chance to talk about my incredibly wonderful parents. They have been all kinds of lovely throught this whole crazy process.

They are the most kid crazy parents you have ever met. They run the creche at their church, Dad has a baby radar which means he somehow manages to get a hold within 5 minutes of seeing any baby-even if he doesn't know the parents. One of my infertility fears has been what it my mean for my kid crazy parents. My sister has no inclination to marriage or kids, so Earl and I are it in the Grand-child production stakes.

But you would never know that from my parents. They say over and over again, they would love to be Grandparents, but what they really want is for us to have the chance to be parents. They ride the IVF roller-coaster with us, they pray for us, and they are always positive and encouraging. Financially they are always offering to help with IVF- although for various reasons we have decided not to take them up on that offer. There has never been any sense of pressure. There has only been understanding. I am so thankful to have them in our corner.

One big issue with this transfer is that I have no fear yet. I think I've just decided that now that the transfer is happening- it's just a given we will get the BFP. It's stupid. I know it's a ridiculous thing to think. But it's just how I feel. Earl has a nervousness I just can't share.

But come Wednesday- come the nerves.
