Rubber Ducky Is Staying Home
The clinic said that I should be fine to take a dip before the transfer but there is a small chance of infection. That small chance is not one I am willing to take so I'll just be taking the tour of Szecheny Baths and not taking a dip in any of the pools. Peace of mind is a great trade off!
Since I am not really comfortable sharing my plans for DE IVF with most of the people in my life I've created two travel itineraries. I feel like a real jerk when people ask me about my plans and I have to tell them the fake itinerary. I'm not a great liar and although I feel badly about it, I know it's the best way to handle this situation.
Regardless of the version of my trip I share, I always hear astonishment (and pity?) that I am traveling alone. I've done many trips all over the world, on my own and with groups of one to 8 people. I am completely comfortable traveling solo. I actually enjoy it because I can go and do and see what I want. I find that I stretch my social skills and become a different version of me (normally I'm a bit shy). Some of my fondest travel memories are those where I've met new people.
So, in my typical Planny McPlanner style, I am busily filling in my days before and after the transfer, thrilled with the opportunity to see new things and have new adventures.
Here's the real itinerary:
9/22-9/25: Brno, Czech Republic
I plan to blog along the way (WiFi willing) so I won't really be all alone, will I?
