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 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
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
On the tube home I was offering an older man my seat and he said "no you go ahead, you've had a heavy day". I don't know if it is the bags under my eyes or the yawning but I am grateful to him. Even if I did feel bad: he was about 70! He … Continue reading Thursday 14th September 2017 : lead up to embryo transfer
I have been decorating and got so into it my injection was 45 mins late. Just after injecting I feel a bit woozy and going up a ladder was probably not the best thing! I am caught between wanting to carry on as usual and taking it easy. I'm wallpapering the baby's room. I know … Continue reading Saturday 9th September: lead up to embryo transfer
I had acupuncture today and said I was starting Suprecur tomorrow. She knows more than I did! This is a down regulator. Full of guilt for being too laid back about the next course I came back and read the leaflet with Suprecur. So this will reduce my sex hormones, basically making me menopausal again, … Continue reading Sunday 3rd September : The day before we start again
At the weekend I went to a wedding and my brother was there. He asked about how the IVF was going and said "I have to admit I thought you have taken it better than I thought". Now he was quite drunk and I was sober so let's give him some slack. He said he … Continue reading Monday 21st August
Sleep, again, is not my friend. It isn't so much not being able to sleep, it is when I'm woken up (thanks dog and fox for the barking battle) my mind switches on and won't turn off. I'm trying all the meditation tips from Calm and Headspace but it isn't happening. Last night OH said … Continue reading Day 14 : Wednesday 10th May
