Break for the Road Trip

Recap of Months 24, 25, and 26, composed in the present since I had no contemporary notes

We had been waiting for quite some time to decide if we were going to relocate. When we got the bad diagnostic news in May of 2013, I said we were picking up and relocating without a reason to do so except that we needed to come home (and I wanted to feel in control of *something*). We picked our university town of Waterloo and started making plans.

We hired a moving truck, but to get ourselves there, we opted for a road trip. It gave our truck time to catch up with us and also killed some of the time before we could get our referred consultation at the only full-service fertility clinic in town. I had to take some time off school, but I thought doing so would free up December, January, and February to be IVF cycles before my next work placement in March.

Ultimately, it meant we were out of the assisted-fertility game for three cycles, and about 3/4s of the way through cycle 26 when we saw the specialist in Waterloo. But more on that next time.
