I’ve had to take a bit of a break from the blog. I’m trying to find some perspective and balance…

I *think* we’ve decided to not do any more IUI’s, to go straight to IVF, as soon as we can afford it. If, however, we work out that we can’t do IVF this year, we will probably try another IUI or two, simply because they won’t cost us as much.

It is so wrong, that these decisions are dictated purely by finances.

There has been some promising news in the media this week.

The proposed changes to the Medicare Safety Net were heard in the senate, and thankfully were met with opposition. It will be another week before anything is decided.

Now that September has rolled around, and the Victorian joke legislation that enforces us all to have a Police Check before undergoing ART has become official (A fury-inducing side note: even if you had frozen embryos from a previous cycle, you would still need a police check before being allowed to do a transfer. What happens to the would-be-parents deemed ‘unsuitable for treatment’? What happens to their embryos??).

The media has FINALLY gotten a hold of this horrendous little piece of news, and is stirring up some attention, which is being received by the general public in exactly the way it should: incredulity and horror.

Waiting.

In my quest to find other things to focus on, I’ve pulled out the sewing machine. Its a great way to just zone out, and distract myself from life.

I have plenty of ideas, but I am plagued with self-doubt… I would love to set up an etsy shop, or even a craft-market stall.

Eventually

I’ve set up another blog that will be dedicated to that little venture:

 Cute Crumples

I’ll be back…
