In response to comments first:
Rachel Inbar asked where we were looking at making aliyah to. As of this time, a lot depends on where my husband will be going to grad school (he is applying at TAU and Ben Gurion). We had been looking mostly at Haifa, since it’s a little less expensive and is absolutely gorgeous. And if he goes to BGU, we’ll have to find something in the South.
But most recently: we’ve fallen a bit in love with Modiin, of Judah the Maccabee fame.
So Rachel, we’ve got a meeting with our shaliach next Wednesday to discuss the new community aliyah options in Modiin. And since we’ve already made a friend there, we’re leaning strongly toward Modiin at the moment.
Anyone else out there want to weigh in on some good options for olim?
And in IF news: not much, really. I have an appointment with a good old fashioned OB/GYN tomorrow since I haven’t really established care with one since we moved last summer. Dr. Laughsalot suggested I have one ready to treat me in the event our cycle is a success.
Which made me realize how pessimistic I had been about this whole process.
I hadn’t allowed myself to hope that this might just work out for us. We could very well be preggo in a couple weeks. Please God, let it be our turn this once.
