We had a follow up appointment at the doctors today. It turns out I shouldn't have been taking the suppositories all this time! I think it might work in my favour though as now I am going to stop them I'll probably start my period and then we can start the next phase! Exciting! So … Continue reading EC: Day ? : Friday 30th June
So the weather is very VERY hot. This is making the progesterone suppositories melt when you try to put them in! I've started keeping them in the fridge so they are a bit more solid! I had acupuncture on Sunday and had a small bleed afterwards. Next appointment at the docs on the 30th.
This post is going to be a bit graphic about periods. Overnight I had a very heavy flow, using a heavy duty night time pad it filled it. The Cyclogest I'm on thickens the womb lining and you could see this. I know this sounds like an exaggeration but this is honestly what has happened. … Continue reading EC Day 15 : Monday 12th June
I know that didn't last long! So, I've started my period. This cycle is important for the hormones to leave my body. I'll call the fertility clinic on Monday and let them know. Something else interesting about IVF is the caution with hospitals. I fell over yesterday and sprained my ankle and grazed my knee. … Continue reading EC Day 14 : Sunday 11th June
So I looked over all my sheets again and the implantation could be 2 months. I still haven't had a cycle yet and I guess that is the best way to get the hormones out of my system. As the next few weeks is going to be about dieting (booooooooo) I'll probably not blog every … Continue reading EC Day 12 : Friday 9th June
I'm so emotional! At work I got arsy with the deputy head about changes to timetables and I sent a snotty email. Now I'm reading through feedback from students about a club I started up and they've been so nice! I'm crying at it! I think I may be starting my period soon.
I've just come out of acupuncture and I must have fallen asleep in there! It flew by! I'm feeling quite tired now. I'd eaten some of last night's spaghetti bolognaise for my lunch and my stomach was making some threatening rumbles. She was pushing around on my stomach and I could feel it slipping around … Continue reading EC Day 10: Wednesday 7th June
I have put on weight. I feel massive at the moment and my clothes look awful! I guess I'm a bit swollen up. Also, the hormones are leaving my body and I have a sniffly nose and sore throat. I guess this is why they say we should give the woman's body time to recover … Continue reading EC Day 9: Tuesday 6th June
I'm glad I got to have Egg Collection in my half term holiday. I do appreciate it. Going back to work today is not feeling too fun right now! I'm knackered! We didn't hear from the embryologist so that means out other 3 eggies didn't make it to 8 cells. We have two eggs in … Continue reading EC: Day 8 : Monday 5th June
Yesterday I decided to have a drink with my partner as we don't have to be so strict. This morning I'm feeling it! I don't think I'm going to do that again for a while. With all the changes I've been putting my body through there are many positives that has come from this, no … Continue reading EC: Day 7: Sunday 4th June
