What do you guys do about holidays? H and I really need one but every time I look at the diary I struggle to figure out when we can go. Partly because of my work commitments, but partly because my cycle is not completely predictable - it can be anywhere between 23 and 28 days. I therefore can't look more than half a cycle out to see where we will be a cycle at any time. Since my early August cycle will be the first time we can do an IUI given my current clinic's busy-ness, I don't want to be away then. If it doesn't work, I want to be around at the end of August for a second try, so we can't be away then. In between we could go away but we can't get flights at the right time and anyway I'm not sure I want to fly during the 2ww just in case it reduces our chances (can you tell I'm getting really irrational here?).
Plus the holiday we really want to do - to go back to Africa again - we can't do because I can't take malaria tablets if we're trying to get pregnant. So we're struggling to think about where we really want to go. One option is to just have a couple of weeks off and stay at home which I would quite enjoy, but that would disappoint H a great deal. We were going to try a UK cottage holiday but the place we want to get to is booked up. We're overall being a bit pathetic.
So what have you all done? Said "to hell with it" and just gone away anyway? Or tried to build holidays around your cycles and interventions? I'm worried we'll let the summer slip away which will be really bad for both of us.
