Where in Israel are you?  DH and I just moved to Tel Aviv and I'm so happy to see another Nestie in milk and honey-land!

Re: **Blueberries**

  • We live just outside Jerusalem. Also, I see you are formerly from Boston. I grew up in MA and went to school in the Boston area, DH is from Toronto. We've been in Israel 3 yrs and 9 yrs respectively. For me, I think the hardest part has been the language and also the abrasiveness of the culture...I am really conflict-avoidant and I hate yelling. How are you finding it so far?


    our history: 6 IUIs, 5 IVF transfers (3 fresh, 2 frozen)

    4 losses - 7w4d, 5w2d, and our beautiful twins born too soon at 20 weeks gestation due to PPROM/PTL, which was preceded by a partial placental abruption

    "A person's a person, no matter how small." (Dr. Seuss)

    currently: long-shot Clomid/Prednisone cycle before our next IVF worked (so far)!!

    beta 1 (13dpo): 146, beta 2 (15dpo): 391, beta 3 (18dpo): 955, beta 4 (20dpo): 2341, beta 5 (22dpo): 4885, u/s #1 (6w5d) - one beautiful squiggly measuring 6w6d, HR 139 bpm

    u/s #2 (7w6d) - a gummy bear measuring 8w0d, HR 167 bpm

  • So far it's okay.  DH and I are getting used to it.  Dealing with the gov't has been peachy (argh) and we can't wait for our container to clear customs.  I start Ulpan at the end of January so I am looking forward to being able to speak more than just the few words I know.  I still cry every time a cafe doesn't have an English menu.  

    As for the culture, DH and I have decided to embrace the craziness.  We parked in the middle of the street a few weeks ago and I'm actually a good driver here!  I've been writing about our experiences in my blog and I find it cathartic.  

    I can't wait to make friends.  I find myself asking DH where I can meet chicks!  Today I picked up a girl at the mall--got her digits--so I'm hoping we will meet for coffee or something.  Argh!
