What a journey! So it has been 30 weeks and I'm starting to feel the pressure now. So far I have really been enjoying my pregnancy. I've been incredibly lucky and not had sickness or pains at all really. It is only the last few days my bump has started to hurt. At the beginning … Continue reading Update: 30 weeks pregnant
Thursday 23rd November: 8 weeks pregnant
I had an early scan yesterday and it has been confirmed! Two babies with strong heartbeats! Bought to you by the NHS: So, don't give up! Yeah IVF can be hard but sometimes it works! Look after yourselves and good luck.
Thursday 2 November : from embryo transfer
So the blood test this morning confirms the pregnancy!!!! Had a cry at work. Told my friend and cried. Had to sit in a toilet crying so no one saw. I’ve kind of ruined my high though. My boss took me to a coffee shop to celebrate and I got a fennel and mint tea. … Continue reading Thursday 2 November : from embryo transfer
It bloody worked!!!
Well. It only bloody worked! How amazing is that! I’m crying a lot! I’ve done about 4 tests just to be on the safe side and they are all positive. God bless those nurses and doctors!!! I’m not very religious but today I am!!! Blood test tomorrow to confirm.
Wednesday 1st Nov : from embryo transfer
So we can test tonight at home! We wanted to do it last night but a negative would bring us both down. Work is actually OK! It has been taking my mind off testing. I’ve had to let things slide off, like when management are incredibly disorganised, and say “zen zen zen” to myself. This … Continue reading Wednesday 1st Nov : from embryo transfer
Sunday 29th October : from embryo transfer
So, I had a bit more bleeding before bed but none over night. It is more like the brown icky stuff that you get towards the beginning or end of your period. I still have some mild cramping, nothing as bad as a period pain. I have a sense of guilt about anything I may … Continue reading Sunday 29th October : from embryo transfer
Saturday 28th October : from embryo transfer
There is a fair bit of cramping. It is like the cramping before a period rather than the cramping during a period. I really don't want to start my period!!! It could be the embryos digging their way in. This is absolutely what we want. Like they are burying themselves into my body (like some … Continue reading Saturday 28th October : from embryo transfer
Friday 27th October : from embryo transfer
It has been just over a week since transfer and the embryos should have hatched and be turning into foetuses having embedded in the womb lining. I'm stoopider and my mum says it is "baby brain" but I'm not so sure. All this new baby stuff is pushing things I used to know out of … Continue reading Friday 27th October : from embryo transfer
Tuesday 24th October: from embryo transfer
So it has been 5 days and there has been a bit of cramping, especially on day 1, but no spotting. This can be good news or bad news! Most signs could mean yes or no so there is no point in reading into anything. At a wedding on Saturday I cried immediately as the … Continue reading Tuesday 24th October: from embryo transfer
Thursday 19th October : from embryo transfer
So it has happened! We went into a room and I put on a gown. I really needed a wee. They go through some paperwork and then you lie back and try to relax without weeing directly into the doctors face. The embryos were all good and you can see everything on screen. The catheter … Continue reading Thursday 19th October : from embryo transfer
