*Disclaimer - this post was not written this morning, I am deliberately posting these entries on different dates so that I can be fully open about this IVF stuff without people knowing exactly what is happening when. It's a self preservation thing, with all of the injected hormones I become a bit of an emotional wreck, and am saving myself the pressure of people curious to know outcomes before I'm ready to tell.

Thank you for coming to read this blog. Not meaning to discriminate, but thank you doubly if you are reading this because of the specific content of my recent posts. Some of you may have got here through search engines, others may know me, or know the wibsite, and be reading this because of that link. You may be reading for other reasons, the fact is I, especially at the time of writing this, don't know who you might be.

This is a fairly frank blog about IVF, and as such is going to go into some details that you may not feel comfortable with. I've made a judgement that if you are reading this you are able to cope with mentions of needles, and if you are intending to follow this through you are ready to read about a story that statistically will not have a happy ending (but let's hope to beat the statistics).

However, there is going to be some stuff that you should have the option not to read. I'm still going to type it, but if for whatever reason you do not want to go into that level of detail, that's fine you won't have to. Here's the deal - I will write some stuff in white. To read it you highlight it. In order that you know where it is I will write "TMI?" (Too Much Information?) above and below that portion of text.

For example


So, my monthly period, which normally lasts five days, maximum has lasted eleven days so far (and counting) due to these blasted hormones.


There we are, so if you feel that you don't need to know the girly bits, or the squeamish bits, or you don't want to know them about me specifically, that's absolutely fine. If you can work out a way around the comments system in this respect then please let me know.

Sigh, NeighboursFans got this sorted with "spoiler tags" years ago!
