HAPPY NEW YEAR

It’s 2020, finally! What an awful year 2019 was, every step forward we took came 2 steps back. Anyway, I know I’ve been quiet with this blog since my last post. Purely because nothing has really been happening on the IVF front. We’ve just been saving, saving, and more saving. But now we’re into 2020,Continue reading “HAPPY NEW YEAR”

Surviving the 2ww

This part never gets any easier! It honestly feels like torture, that is the best way I can decribe it. You go through every single emotion through this time. I could go from feeling really positive, excited and happy to negative, anxious, upset and angry in a few hours. Feeling vulnerable, because your happiness dependsContinue reading “Surviving the 2ww”

Embryo transfer no.3

PRAYING FOR 3RD TIME LUCKY!!! We had our second scan on August 16th which comfirmed the lining of my womb was thick enough for transfer. August 23rd, we arrived at the clinic for around 11am. Yet again, I had gone over the top with the water and my bladder was full. to. the. brim. IContinue reading “Embryo transfer no.3”

Onto our 3rd and final funded cycle

Bloody hell. This is scary stuff. If it doesn’t work this time around, we have to pay. A LOT of money. Don’t get me wrong, we both feel incredibly lucky to of had 3 cycles funded to us, seeing as it all depends on where you live as to how many cycles are funded toContinue reading “Onto our 3rd and final funded cycle”

Internal scans and my side effects to medications.

May 31st we went for an internal scan to measure the lining of my womb. The scan showed I was measuring just under the required 8mm at 7.6mm, so they decided to double my dose of oestrogen tablets from 6mg a day to 12mg and booked another scan for June 7th. Those oestrogen tablets madeContinue reading “Internal scans and my side effects to medications.”

Starting our 2nd cycle

On May 23rd, my third period finally arrived. A week late but never mind! Which means we start treatment again! Little bit different this time around, as I have some frozen embryo’s I don’t need to stimulate again. So on day 2 of my period, I start on injections. These are similar to the nasalContinue reading “Starting our 2nd cycle”

Bad luck found us…

Over the next 2 days I continued spotting, but tried not to worry too much about it and just tried to feel happy that we were pregnant! After all, I didn’t have any cramping or anything. Everything else felt just fine. 2 days after our positive pregnancy test, I was on a 12 hour shiftContinue reading “Bad luck found us…”

The dreaded injections!

So after 3 weeks of nasal sprays, on February 5th, I had an internal scan (you’ll have MANY of these if you are/will ever go through IVF) to check that my ovaries were, how they would describe “nice and quiet” meaning they were not producing any eggs. The fertility specialist was happy that my ovariesContinue reading “The dreaded injections!”
