@hopefull29 - no I don't want to test. I should considering I'm going to Melbourne for the weekend. But I don't normally. Just have to wait until the 8th
@cag14 good on you for not testing. I have no self central 🙊
I always try to wait but cave at about 6-7 days after the transfer. Enjoy Melbourne! Awesome day here today, but I think the weather is turning so pack something warm!
Hi ladies, I'm sorry to just drop in like this. I was in the loop a few weeks back but then went quiet during my first ever cycle. I guess I thought I didn't want to bombard everyone with my journey... yet I was so attentively reading up what was happening to all of you.. Creepy I know!
But now I just need to offload.
It's been ****. Terrible EC (only 3 and only 2 fertilised) terrible idea to transfer my day 4 embryo,
Terrible Friday when I got my period. And not to mention I've had a **** time with the person who should support me the most - my husband. He's been terrible support.
This whole thing is just absolutely terrifying and I feel for all of us.
Baby dust and good wishes to all. You're all amazing, beautiful and no one will ever understand what you're feeling apart from someone else who has been through this.
And in saying that no one knows you and your body like you - we can all ask for advice but the best advice is your own gut.
Keep going girls, you'll get there soon, just believe in yourself.
@cococool sorry to hear it's been a tough road Hun. Are you going to be doing another cycle soon?
I feel comfortable on this site with all these ladies they understand what I'm going through even if our journeys are slightly different
@cococool so sorry you've had such a crappy time. I hope your next cycle is a success.
Have you told any family/friends about your IVF journey? Perhaps you could find some support from them. Have you discussed with DH you don't feel like he has been as supportive as you'd like?
Hang in there Hun, as you said you'll get there in the end, just believe in yourself. xx
And as for your husband, men deal with it in a different way and it's hard on them as they feel rather helpless in the whole thing and I think they also feel guilty that we have to go through a lot while they just sit back. Give him some time and I am sure all will be well
@hopefull29 yes, my mum knows how I feel and my bff. I have some lovely people around me. He (DH) just sometimes seem to embody the devil and I seem to be on the receiving end. All fool me as I knew what I was getting into when I married him. I know this is tough for him too. He's a old fashioned type of guy who doesn't speak about his feelings so he bottles it all up and it all comes out the wrong way usually at me over something ridiculous.
But still, I love him and he loves me. @cag14 we'll see - waiting for the tests to come back on the embryo. If they come back in time I might do it in August - otherwise sept - pending if it survives the testing and thawing.
End of the day I'm ok!
Just felt the need to get it off my chest!
Thank you for checking in
