Still waiting on my AF.....arghh....hopefully tomorrow.
@Heyside yay your AF came....its all go from now onwards....i'll hopefully be stalking you by one day😅
@lileitak good luck tomorrow
@Muchulu1 congrats i hope your numbers keep increasing
@lotsathoughts good luck with your BT tomorrow
I struggled a little today as i had breakfast with my pregnant sister in law....I wanted to have a good chat about her pregnancy and when bub joins us in Oct, but I just felt like i couldn't speak. Im so excited for them but feel like I can't be excited around them because of how they are at times! I think she might be trying to protect me because its not happening for me at the moment, but it actually makes it harder on me when they don't act normal. Has anyone else had this with family or friends? Its like she won't talk about her pregnancy because she might hurt me? I understand in some ways but it still kinda hurt that we couldn't just chat normally.😯
Or maybe im just being sensitive.
@lileitak your bloods are way more exciting than mine!! Good luck tomorrow!!
@Heyside so glad AF arrived. Will be good to start planning a bit of a timeline.
@katham yes I understand that feeling of awkwardness that people have with their pregnancy. It's so hard because it's a fine line between sharing and rubbing it in your face. All you can do is try to not let it weird you out too much. I find that if I ask questions they let their guard down a bit. But sometimes I can't be bothered doing all the work and talk about other things. It does hurt when it impacts relationships. You're not being sensitive xx
@katham I've been in that situation with a close friend who's Bub is now 7 months. She doesn't even know we're doing IVF and has told other close friends that she just can't stand to be around me because she feels "guilty" it hurts but I figure it's her issue not mine. I'm always interested in hearing about people's babies/ pregnancies. I think in general people just don't know how to react and don't want to hurt us but sometimes by trying to "protect" us they end up hurting us more.
@katham I get what you're going through. After DH and I had been trying for 6 months (pre infertility diagnosis) SIL got pregnant and told everyone at 5 weeks. I cursed her in my head - because it's seems everything in life is handed to her on a silver platter. Then she had a MC at 6 weeks and I felt horrible. It took them another 2 years to conceive again, and their daughter will be 6 when this baby is born. We had DS in the meantime.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this other to say that families are hard. Infertility is hard. It's all bloody hard.
Can you speak with SIL openly? Tell her you are genuinely happy for them, and their happiness doesn't equal your sadness? You want to enjoy being an Auntie and don't want their feelings of guilt to overshadow that.
@katham - Hope af turns up today for you hun then we will be on the same cycle say as its officialy cd1 for me today. Sorry you feel that way with your sister in law maybe you should open up to her and let her know how you feel. Its nice she is considering how you feel though, some people are quite the opposite and have no concept of what they are saying and how it might affect you.
Yay! Just got my blood test results. I'm surging today and will ovulate tomorrow so transfer is on Saturday. So glad my body got its Sh!t together and ovulated on its own. Today is cd21 so it's a little late but they're not worried as I've just come off a stim cycle. I don't start crinone gel until the day of transfer.
Doing a happy dance as I was starting to get pretty convinced I wasn't going to o this month. 😃💃
