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 … Continue reading Wednesday 18th October: lead up to embryo transfer
I've just done my last injection!!!!!!! I feel quite excited. It is making it all feel a bit more real. I had a cry on Friday night because I didn't feel ready but I think that was following two incredibly long days at work. This time next week I could be pregnant!!!!!!!!!!
I'm on the train to work following our scan. Apparently the womb lining should be over 6mm and mine is 6.2. Get in! She also said "it all looks beautiful" which obviously made me happy. I said I've been feeling a pressure like before having a period and she said that is totally normal. So...... … Continue reading Monday 9th October : lead up to embryo transfer
I have put on about half a stone! I know I cannot blame the hormones... I've been munching like no bodies business. I have a week to try and lose a bit. This time next week there will be some embryos in me! How about that? Fingers crossed they'll want to stay in there.
We went out for a meal last night as it was our 7 year anniversary (of our first date) and because of the happy IVF news. We started talking names, which I know is a dangerous game. We have some quite different ideas about good names..... He said to name a girl after our grandmothers: … Continue reading Tuesday 10th October : lead up to embryo transfer
Last time I took Progynova I said the symptoms were vivid dreams. That is certainly happening again! I dreamt that a very straight friend started a gay relationship with an older, Italian man because he bought him a shop. I don't feel as ill and I think that is partly because I fixed my bike … Continue reading Friday 6th October : lead up to embryo transfer
I'm feeling pretty run down. I've got an earache which throbs every now and again causing my face to clench up. I look a little crazy. I need to feel more well so before and after transfer I'm going to take some time off. I can't be full of virus when those teeny tiny embryos … Continue reading Wednesday 4th October 2017 : lead up to embryo transfer
The weekend was a massive mix of emotions! On Friday I visited friends and had a lovely time. It is VERY noticeable when people are drunk and you are not drinking! I went to a wedding in Saturday which was a dry wedding. I also drove so there were many excuses at the ready for … Continue reading Monday 2nd October : lead up to embryo transfer
I took today off and slept for most of the morning. I've worn myself out! The scan went well. She showed me the screen which I always like, I saw the womb and the "still" ovaries. Everything is slowed down and resting at the moment. Tonight I start Progynova again alongside the Suprecur (with a … Continue reading Thursday 28th September: lead up to transfer
I checked over Facebook at work and saw a post from a friend which needs digesting so I'm going to write about it all here. She was 41 weeks pregnant and previous posts have been pics of how big she was and how ready to see her baby she was. The post today read that … Continue reading Wednesday 27th September : lead up to embryo transfer
