Thanks for all the moral support . Yesterday at work was just the hardest day for me . When I arrived at my office , I saw one of my patients who is due in 2 weeks' time . ( we had done the IVF at the same clinic and had fallen pregnant at around the same time ) .
A couple of minutes later another really nice patient told me how happy she was I was back ,but did not want me to go away again ,on maternity leave ( which she assumed would be soon ) . I told her what happened and she looked so shocked and I just felt like I wanted to burst out crying which would have been so unprofessional .
The next patient , was a pregnant woman who is also due now , and wished me congratulations . By this point I was just finished emotionally , and I said , "no there is no congratulations" and changed the subject because I could not handle talking about it again .
Bonnie, you can give me her number - email it to my private email .
(firstname.lastname@example.org) .We live quite far from Modi'in though , so I intend on making contact with someone in Raanana ( which is about 10 minutes from where we live ) . I have been seing a social worker who has really helped me a lot . I was in South Africa for the whole of January , so we have not met up again since I got back . We planted a tree for Dina before I went to South Africa . It is called a Chinese Lantern and has these very delicate peach flowers . Me and my daughter Tali made a little wooden plaque with her name which we hung from the tree.
Gloria , I would really appreciate it if you would send me the article . My address is email@example.com .
