Wednesday 18th October: lead up to embryo transfer

Work has been so busy I haven’t had time to collate my thoughts!

So, I’m on Progynova and Cyclogest. The cyclogest suppositories are giving me squishy bowel movements which are not the nicest thing in the world. That seems to be the worst side effect so far.

I’m doing one in the morning and one in the evening which makes me think about my butt the whole train journey into work.

Today is going to be an interesting one. I’m teaching, then leaving to get acupuncture, then returning for another lesson, then I have parents’ evening. At least I have Thursday and Friday off work. You don’t actually need time off and most people go back to work after the procedure, but I’m playing it and I’m going to Ireland on Friday. I’ve been worked pretty hard recently so I’m not going to feel guilty about it.

I had some funny dreams last night because it is all getting a bit more real. There have been so many stoppages on the way it doesn’t seem true. I’m excited and nervous. Because of the test run I know what to expect and I know it won’t hurt. The embryos still need to keep dividing and attach to my womb lining so I’m trying not to expect it to work but I’m allowing myself to be excited that we have gotten this far.


I’ve received a call! 12:00 tomorrow! We have to be there 45mins early because my partner has used a different signature apparently! They want to just check there is no fraud.

Eat a good breakfast they said, totally able to do that, and have a full bladder.

It is getting exciting now! Three people at work have wished me luck (it isn’t public knowledge but some people needed to know). All fingers crossed!
