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
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
