@Corbes I am a 30 day clockwork girl but the next full cycle after a stim I'd go out to 35-40 days! It def puts everything awry with testing and trying for a natural bfp! Good luck 🍀🍀🍀
A big hello to everyone
I've been following along with the thread but sorry I haven't had time to post and keep up with everyone personally! Am trying to keep busy in the TWW
So good to see some BFPs in here - it gives some hope that there is light at the end of this journey and we're not all doing this in vain. I totally understand the ladies that are have lost bubba's and are scared of getting pregnant again. I like to think that I'll be more "what will be will be" when I next fall pregnant (because I'm sure I will) but in reality I'm likely to be a basket case. The anxiety around the scans is the worst for me - I've never seen a heartbeat, so every single scan has been really bad news, so I'm normally sobbing my heart out before I even get in the ultrasound room. Anyway, there's only one way forward!
I'm doing OK in the TWW, I've been very good at taking all my stuff and doing my daily Clexane. I've got another Pregnyl to do tomorrow and another on Sunday, then it's just the countdown until I can test. Other than that first dream, I have no feeling whatsoever about this one. I'm actually less anxious than normal to be honest because I just don't have any idea one way or the other. We'll see in another ten days or so.
Hope you're feeling a bit better @Skyler and are able to talk it all through with someone.
Have a good week everyone xxx
@Leisylou fx that this is it for you!
@Skyler I contacted a lady called Lucy at a website called catching rainbows last year and she has made me some bespoke targeted meditation tracks for me. I have found them invaluable in this journey so far.
I was having a bit of trouble last week hyperventilating every time I thought about this upcoming de cycle and all the money we are spending, I was having lots of what if scenarios running through my mind. I contacted her again and she has created a specific track for me that touches on my fears and gives me hope.
She is based in the UK but responds really quickly and might help?
@Leisylou Well done Luv keeping your shiz together thus far!!! Oh Luv... You will see a HB one day Girl, I truly believe that and I personally can't wait!!!
Ok, 2 more Pregnyl's to go!!! Sooner that shiz is out the way the better!! So, you going to remain strong and not test it out Luv??
@Chiefsgirl I'm glad the meditations helping Luv I found it beneficial during my last Cycle and 2wTorture. I can only imagine how ultra stressful this is for you, but it'll all be worth it when you get your BFP!!!
Not long to go now for you!!! "Lono" is the God of Fertility over there. I reckon buy a tiki sculpture (or something like that) of him as a talisman for you to bring you extra luck!!! I shall send a prayer to him and the Universe for you Girl!!!
best of luck @Leisylou I'd be testing it out too, I'm so addicted
@Chiefsgirl its so hard to be going through all this IVF cr@p and to have it compounded with the financial worries too. I've been doing the thing where you seem to be holding your breath, a sure sign of stress for me. Ugh, hopefully just a few more months to go for us all!
@Corbes mine are always delayed by quite a lot, by as much as 4 weeks sometimes but I haven't had a regular cycle for 3 years now.
Oh my god Corbes my cycle is like yours. I've no idea when I ovulated as I stopped testing after day 15/16 as we had to do a sperm freeze so hubby had to abstain anyway.
Now no period, cycle day 27/28 and lots of cramping. Unfortunately from what I've read it also happens perimenopausal. 😢
I'd love to be preggies, but too wary to test.
Ok, now I've read everyone's responses I'm not so sure it's preggers although we have had a bleed since a frozen embryo transfer. Just wait and see eh!
Ok, so I tested and I have a very very faint line!
This might mean another chemical pregnancy but I don't know when I ovulated so yikes!
I'm day 27/28 of my cycle, but not sure when I ovulated so.. Please God, let it be true!!
Pregnant for the first-time?
