I thought my fairytale had come true when I married the man of my dreams - and in many ways, it has. But after 16 cycles of hope and disappointment followed by a trip to see a consultant and three failed ICSI attempts, we have a diagnosis of both severe oligozoospermia and diminished ovarian reserve to contend with, and wonder whether we'll ever get a chance to complete our family.
The old clinic - where we had ICSI #1 (October 2009) and ICSI #2 (November/December 2009)
Mr No Nonsense - the consultant, a man of few words who doesn't like to sugar the pill
Nurse Perfect - my favourite nurse
Nurse First Time - the nurse I saw on our first appointment, who is my second favourite
Nurse Not Quite - the other nurse
The XXXX clinic - where we had ICSI #3 in 2010
Mr Miracle Worker - the head consultant
Mr Greek God - the consultant we saw on our first appointment
Mr Wonderful - the consultant we saw most often during ICSI #3
Aussie Girl - the nurse we saw on our first appointment

Blogger won't let me comment on any Blogspot posts! It's been doing it for a couple of weeks now, and is very frustrating - so I'd just like to say to cgd, I'm thinking of you, and hope that you have a very happy birthday today.
