So Matta Fair started last Friday and DH and I have been talking about wanting to travel again this year. We agreed a city in Europe, and after calling the travel agent that we used last year for our Japan trip, we made our booking. I also managed to persuade little sister to join us on our adventure. I only get to see her a couple of times a year because of her work as a trauma doctor Sabah, which is not nearly enough, so to get her on board on our adventure is awesome. The original plan was for DH and I to go on our anniversary in August, but since since August is a bit too hot in that particular city we decided on October. And since we will be mostly walking around during the day and collapse at the end of the day and there won't be much of baby dance, if at all any, we thought it would be fun if little sister joins us. And if by chance that I am pregnant come October InsyAllah if our IVF is successful, having a doctor on the trip would be really helpful and reassuring.

DH originally planned to go for 7 nights which leaves us 6 full days to tour the city. Not nearly enough if you ask me. So on Sunday when we went to pay for the airline tickets, I managed to persuade him to extend another night. I mean, the original plan was to come back on Friday so we can rest on Saturday and Sunday, so why not extend another night and we can still rest on Sunday, right? :P

So now all that's left for me to do is make the booking for the hostel and plan the itinerary. Time to bring back out the itinerary goddess in me I say!

I know DH is a bit worried about me and baby if and when I do get pregnant, but hey, I've learned not to let my infertility and treatments get in the way of life. I'm having enough pressure as it is with friends being pregnant or giving birth and being blissfully happy with their child filled lives. I don't need to add to that pressure by planning my life around my infertility. And there's no point worrying about a pregnancy that's not yet happening. Plus, if my doctor says that she's not comfortable with me going on the trip if and when I do get pregnant, I don't think I'll be that irresponsible to insist on going.

So that's the plan. Here's to a fabulous October!

Have a good day everyone!
