Sorry I've been absent. Work has been busy and that's where I do most of my posting.
@Chunkydunks I hope you get the BFP when you decide to test.
@BabyG4 I'm glad the surgery went well. Hope the FS gives you the all clear!
Hope everyone else is well. Sorry for lack of personals, there's so much to catch up on.
We have been busy budgeting more and have been baby shopping for friends. That was so much fun! I'm doing a low carb, high protein diet and have managed to lose a couple of kgs yay.
Big thing happened on the weekend. I managed to get a blood test without hyperventilating/shaking/crying/swearing/needing to be pinned down. DP was so proud of me as last time she was with me it was really bad. I'm pretty proud of myself too and hope I can manage to be like this from now on. Will make everything so much easier when it comes to IVF
Ugh, so much for an all-clear - HCG is now 10. Soooo close yet so far! Ah well, SURELY it will be zero next time.
Thanks @BabyG4. It is hard when you just want to move on and it drags out. Unfortunately my HCG started going back up again after my ectopic surgery back in March so I had to have a dose of methotrexate. Because of that we are not allowed to conceive for 3 months due to the risk of birth defects (metho is a bit of a nasty drug). I would love nothing more than to try again this minute! But I have to be content with counting down the weeks until we can do another cycle in July. I'm hoping the enforced break will do my body good, and July will be our lucky month
@BeautyOfTheSoul Well done on your BT! I had a terrible needle phobia in my younger years after a traumatic experience, so I know what a big deal it is to get through it like you did. Hopefully it will get easier each time now
Sorry to hear your HCG isn't gone yet @MrsChino. Fingers crossed it happens really soon! july will be here before you know it. We won't be too far behind you when we have our very first appointment together. It's all coming up so quickly! It's already nearly May! I can't believe the year is almost half over.
And thanks, I'm hoping it will get easier. I think it will. Having DP there is just so helpful and I didn't traumatise her this time so that's good
Hi everyone! I will be ttc early next year I know that's so far away but I'm sooo excited 😁
