The Czech update

Stephanie says:

Anyway, everything you said that you wish wouldn't happen did. Turbulence? Check. Really hard times on the train? Check. Comfortable bed to sleep in? No check. It's all just Czech! LOL The bed is hard and has this very odd rough terry fitted sheet on it. Very odd.

But, today was our retrieval day!! Everyone else (2 other couples) had to wait an extra day for stims but, ours did so well that she did her retrieval as scheduled. Today, we had to wait 1.5 hours for the wankatorium because some guy from the US whose wife just had her ER couldn't get the job done. He came out of the room sweaty and nervous and was pacing up and down. Oh dear. Eventually, he decided to go back to the hotel to see if that would help. Who knows what happened after that! Anyway, DH had no trouble.

Now, it's just the wait for the fert report which will come in the afternoon here tomorrow.

Hooray! Retrieval already! I hope they get a great fert report.

As for me, just plodding along. Still getting over the cold I caught last week - I seemed to have turned into a snot factory lately, but oh well. I'm slowly adjusting to the new schedule, but haven't done any exercise since I started college, really. I've just been too tired, so that's my big thing for this week - to at least get back to walking and do some cycling even if I don't think I'm up for jogging. And running a half-marathon? Uh, let's just say that's looking highly unlikely at this point.

Great report on Stephanie.

I know which Czech hotel Stephanie is staying at from the scratchy sheet comment (my DE cycles are at the same clinic)! I was warned to bring an extra sheet if I was going to stay there.

I hope your cold gets better soon. Speaking from experience, if it moves to your chest, avoid the running. I did that while training for a half and got my first ever bought of bronchitis (and messed up my half training)
