MrsFurBabies - Hello! FX you get some answers soon!
Francisthecat - Hi! You've been through so much! FX this is your cycle!
Missalina -Woo our usernames are similiar I have no idea what Thrombophilia is! I hope your tests go all good and you can get on with getting your BFP
Has anyone ever done or thought about doing a journal during IVF? I have just ordered one, I was going to write down my feelings, all the meds ill be taking, maybe a few photos along the way. I thought it would be cool to have it all in a book, and if we are successful whether it's the first go or the fifteenth go, i'd have it to show the bub when they are old enough to understand
Missalissa thats a great idea, some do blogs too. Great way to get your feelings out and also keep track of things
missalissa1987 lol love your 'ulterior' motive. I thought about doing one. But for me personally I think doing one would drive me more crazy. I find in general it already does my head in trying to analyse & decipher every symptom, comparing one cycle to a previous one, getting upset when things aren't feeling (symptom-wise) any different to the last etc. So if I were to write things down, I'd prob tear my hair out even more. Plus during 2ww's I TRY to Not to think about things. So if I was journal'ing everything it would defeat that purpose,
But having said all that, when you do achieve that precious BFP, having the journal would make for a lovely keepsake. And then I'll prob regret not having one lol But everyone is different, whatever works for you hun xx
I find keeping a journal just for myself helps get the thoughts out of my head, if i can think through them enough so they make sense in a sentence it feels like a relief to get it all out.. lots of people do blogs and so forth, i write my thoughts down just for me as a release. You have to find what works for you
Hi Ladies, I hope you don't mind me joining, as I already have a DS. He was conceived by IVF after we were diagnosed with unexplained infertility. Last year I fell PG naturally, but had both my tubes removed after it was revealed to be ectopic. So now I have no option but to do IVF.
AF is due on the 1st May and we're going to start a cycle then. We've already had one FET/MC and one failed stim cycle since spring. We decided to wait until April (which turned into May after a long March cycle) as we go away at Easter and DS's birthday party will be on the 26th and I didn't want to be stressing about timing.
I started a journal when we first started TTCing for DS. I've always been terrible at journal keeping. And its too depressing to show my kid/s when they're older.
My BF and another lady from playgroup are both PG and due in July. If the FET cycle hadn't been a miscarriage, I would have been due in June. Luckily my brother and sister are both single so I don't have to worry about them getting PG before me. And my BIL is getting married in Dec, and I'm fairly confident that I will be PG by then.
Did anyone else skip a March cycle because they didn't want a Christmas baby? I used to hate the idea of it before we started IVF. It seems so obnoxious of the overly fertile to talk about timing their future child's birthday.
I would have loved to have a Christmas baby! Hell I'd love to just be able to Have a baby!
Good idea to wait till after Easter/your DS's birthday. You def don't want to be stressing and/or an emotional wreck during all that! hehe Hope your upcoming cycle brings you lots of success & happiness xx
Oh no, I must be turning into one of those obnoxious people! We needed time to recover from the disappointment of the January cycle (record number of eggs collected, but ended up with a BFN and nothing to freeze), and using Christmas as an excuse to take another month off made it easier for me.
Does anyone else already have a child, whether they were conceived naturally or with assistance?
