Post 1: Hello from the waiting room

Father's Day is looming. It remains to be seen what I will post on here but first I will explain why I created this blog.

The Waiting Room is a reference to the period before diagnosis, sitting in a surgery with doubt hanging over what is wrong. For me, I have to 'serve a waiting period' of 12 months (in the US) or 2 years (WHO and UK rules) before my infertility - a product of my partner's hysterectomy is automatically recognised in my life and my healthcare decisions. 

I am also waiting to be living with my partner, because currently we are apart.
