@Heyside she never behaves when starting a cycle. Mine arrived 2 days early and I was not prepared.
@Tinachris is it a single or double transfer? Good luck tomorrow. Its the best appt of the whole cycle. The big event.
@Maxwellsmum It was hard to read your post. Its so raw and honest. You never hear about the gazillion failures. Im a realist and want to read threads that offer knowledge, not a competition on egg numbers or banking 15 frosties. Good on them, but its not going to help me and my head space. I like this thread because the support is not sugar coated. I hope you are ok. xx
@Corbes she is a little beauty. IVF is not always our quick fix answer, as I ignorantly thought. Your little blessing is gorgeous and seeing your little Grace reminds me of the end goal. Thank you for letting us see her, I remember you!
AFM - The enormity of the final round has hit me I think. Been having weird dreams and panicking that Im not bloated enough and Im not uncomfortable. I guess tomorrow will tell me how its going with my second scan. No point stressing over things I cant control!! My brother just announced his g'friend is 10wks preg. Their first and Im very excited. I just love babies. I think thats my problem, I just love everyones baby so much.
Thankyou , loving the islands & lapping it up every minute -although my husband is trying to make sure I don't get too much sun & everywhere we go ensuring I'm shaded ! Driving me slightly bonkers ...I keep reminding him that I haven't had the transfer yet !! lol ps found plenty of pomegranate juice , having some every day it's delicious
Hi everyone @Maxwellsmum, I was at my FS's the other day for my WTF appointment after our 2nd failed DE cycle and he said "I just can't explain why it didn't work", my response was because the universe is frucked that's why! And he said yes the universe is frucked that's the only explanation!
So up yours to the universe I say!!!!'. It's not hard to feel jaded, I had a friend who at 38 (same age as me on my first cycle) did her first cycle, ended up with 1 to transfer ( same as me) I got a BFN and she got her BFP and now has her little boy, I still can't speak to her. I feel like she had my baby!!! ( she didn't have fertility problems, but is in a same sex relationship) .
She kept telling me beforehand how she really wouldn't be upset if it didn't work because her partner is younger so they work just use her eggs. And then bam! Preggers first go!
She called me to tell me, and went on about how hard it all was- um not if it works first go!
See I'm bitter and angry too, we're allowed to be!!!'
@MissDa yeah absolutely we are allowed to be!!! Its the relentlessness of it not working, time and time and time again thats the killer. Its like every time Ive been pregnant Ive thought that this time it will be ok, so many people have one miscarriage and then go on to have kids with no issues, that was a couple of my friends so I thought that would be me..nope. 2nd time it was a zillion times worse as it was ectopic..then third time, my dad dies just after i got my bfp and so I think the timing has to mean it will be ok..nope. Before all of this I used to think stuff happened for a reason, now whenever I hear someone say that, I think yeah well, you've obviously not have had anything horrendous happen to you. Bad frucking stuff happens to really great people ALL the time and there is no bloody explanation for it. Fruck you bad stuff!!!!!
@Tinachris Ill be cheering on your embies tomorrow for transfer! Good Luck!!! Are you going for the wazza drug/brandy induced special? I might have to ask my new FS what she thinks of the concept!! Sounds pretty good to me
@Lucky8 thats cute about your dh, enjoy the lovely Greek islands and GOOD LUCK for wednesday!!
@Maxwellsmum we're all here cheering on your lining for the next available transfer time. Given that wazza has spoken about a lower measurement being acceptable I reckon it will mean you'll be downing that valium and brandy concoction in no time. Big hugs and hoping you are feeling a bit more hopeful today..don't give up!!! xx
