A final footnote.

Traditionally people don't actively publicise their pregnancies before the end of the first trimester because of the risk of miscarriage – sadly 1 in 5 normal conceptions don't make it to 24 weeks. The research indicates that IVF/ICSI pregnancies are no more likely than ordinary ones to miscarry, (which is a massive relief), but, given the nature of the blog and the possibility of recurring OHSS, I feel it would be remiss of me not to mention the facts... (if we are fortunate enough to get a positive result, tomorrow will not be the right time).  

It's hard to believe that our journey together is coming to an end; please know that, whatever the outcome, your solidarity has been an invaluable blessing.  And, child, if you are reading this, then you now know that you are the product of a whole wide world's worth of love.
