They then called me again on Thursday and said 10 wereContinue reading “Embryo transfer no.4”

Egg collection

Sorry, I know this is a late update again! I have no excuse other than being lazy. So this is from nasal sprays right through to today which is egg collection.

Test Day no.3

September 3rd, we woke up super early again, around 5:30am ish. SO nervous! My heart began racing the second I opened my eyes. I just don’t know if I can take another fail, and I don’t know what we will do about affording treatment if this hasn’t worked. I went to the bathroom and doneContinue reading “Test Day no.3”
