What a Weekend

Our weekend away was amazing. The resort was BEAUTIFUL and we were treated like a king and queen. We got up north around 4pm on Friday and the weather wasn't great (of course the only weekend that it hasn't been sunny and hot is the weekend we go away - figures), but we managed to enjoy the day none the less. We immediately put on the comfy robes of the hotel and chilled the wine. I had pre-ordered chocolate strawberries so we ate those as we drank from our balcony over looking the lake. It was paradise. We loved our room so much that we didn't leave until Saturday. Nothing beats room service in bathrobes. ;)

Saturday we spent the day relaxing by the pool and we got an amazing couples massage. Seriously, if you haven't done this before (and we hadn't) do it. It was so nice and it was ended off with a 30 min aromatherapy jacuzzi. So nice. We then had a romantic dinner in the hotel where we drank a lot and ate delicious food.

Sunday was picture perfect. The weather cooperated and spent the entire day outside. We sat by the pool, we canoed and even swan in the lake. It was amazing. At the end of the weekend, we both felt relaxed and re energized. As I said to A., this was exactly what i needed to keep fighting the IF battle.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

From these chairs we were able to have this view from our hotel room.

Onwards and upwards. Next on the agenda, tomorrow's hcg check and hopefully a period sometime soon.


E.T.A.- I just realized that today is the one month anniversary of my first dose of Misoprostol. :( It still really hurts.


  1. Looks and sounds like you had a great time! Where did you go?

  2. Sounds (and looks) beautiful! So glad you had such a fantastic time!!

  3. Kelly, we went to Gravenhurst, Ontario.

  4. Those pictures look amazing! I'm so glad you had a much needed and deserved getaway!

  5. What beautiful views! I am relaxed just viewing them. DH and I haven't done something like that in a long time. So its great you guys made the time for it and took full advantage (chilled wine, comfy chairs, bathrooms....glorious).

    Sorry about the one month reminder and return to blood test and level checks. Hang in there, you are soon going to turn a corner.

  6. Awe!! I've been thinking tonnes of you all weekend hoping you had a FAN-TABULOUS time!! Looks and sounds like it was. I feel getaways are ESSENTIAL after "reproductive traumas"...they are necessary. So cool. Hoping for a zero beta tomorrow.

  7. Ah...I've never been to Canada but it's on my sooner-rather-than-later travel list! I checked out the website. WOW!!

    I hope that your appointment shows a zero beta so you can be done with the checks. (((HUGS)))

  8. Wow, what a beautiful place. That weekend sounds lovely, so glad you were able to get away.

    Good luck at the appointment!

  9. I just found your blog when I was looking at someone else's blog roll. I was glad to read that your time away in Gravenhurst was restful and rejuvenating. I'm sure you and your husband really needed it. I hope that the week continues to be calm.

    I also want to wish you well on going ahead with egg donation. As a Canadian woman who is also hoping for egg donation, I have many hopes and fears about this process.

  10. Wow! Awesome pictures and so glad you had a wonderful time.


  11. Looks like an amazing weekend! So glad you were able to get away. It does give you the energy to keep fighting, doesn't it? I actually picture our view from our cottage in St Lucia when I get stressed during Dr Appts.
