I so wish I hadn't done that last OE cycle and had kept that money aside for my donor egg cycle....
yes, a plan b is a good idea and 'expect for the worst, hope for the best' attitude. though it's hard at times when you start hoping too much. realistically expect that it won't happen first go (so/but if it does it's a bonus)
Welcome to all the new lovelies who have joined our ranks. May your journeys be short and sweet
Also, make sure you feel you can trust your fs so you wont be second guessing if things dont work out. If you are confident and trust them, it makes things easier in the long run.
And... (i know this sounds sad and i dont mean to scare you) be prepared for it to be difficult and challenging. Be kind to yourself and acknowledge that its ok to feel however you do. You dont have to cheer up, look on the bright side, keep it together, be strong, blah, blah, etc, etc... Just let however you feel happen and know its ok to be like that....
And hang out with us coz we know how it feels and can reassure you that whatever you're going through its ok :-)
Sorry, you asked for 1 thing but these are the 4 main things i wish i knew when i started xox
