Balancing Work, Life, and IVF appointments

I’m having some trouble balancing work and my IVF schedule. I don’t know how anyone with a 9-5 job can manage to do an IVF cycle without taking a few weeks off. I’m lucky in that I see clients in their homes and can set my own hours, however I typically see the same clients at the same time and day each week and have had to do some shuffling  and cancelling recently to accommodate doctor appointments.

I know I’m going to have to cancel on clients for the ER, probably a few days after that, and then again for the ET and bedrest that follows. The problem is that I don’t know WHEN this is all occurring exactly. I don’t want to just cancel for the next 2 weeks, yet I want to give my clients enough notice…

I also need to arrange for a friend to drive Handsome Boy to and from school… but again…I don’t know which days I’ll need the help! I wasn’t planning on telling anyone IRL about our struggles and IVF, but I think I’m going to have to…

Any advice?
