We got the wonderful news this morning that I am pregnant! Our main response so far has been “eeeeeeeeeeeek”, “aaaah!!” and “wowweee!”. To be honest finding it hard not to think I am dreaming at the moment! I may have caved and did an early test yesterday (which would have been 10 days past 5 … More Poppy seed !!!!
Every time I think about my upcoming pregnancy test on Wednesday I hear the tune of the final countdown in my head… Sorry for the ear worm! Thought I’d share the love 🙂 So far during my wait I’ve been fairly well behaved – I have not tested early (and am vowing not to do so… although … More Countdown to “the test”
Yesterday morning at 10:35 we officially became the proud guardians of one teeny tiny blastocyst. The procedure of embryo transfer was so so easy compared to everything else we have been through to get here, I was surprised at how quick it was! I was giggling the whole way through – due to happiness, and the … More Blastocyst on board
Disclaimer: the below is me having a bit of a moan. I’ve figured I’ve got one free pass 🙂 4 days past egg collection and I’m currently cycling through the below: “oh I feel fine, that’s great!” “groan I feel bloated and why do my ovaries hate me?” “oh I feel fine again, it must be … More The wonderous world of post egg collection side effects
The Pregnyl shot went well on Saturday, and I really enjoyed not having to do injections on Sunday. I was panicking like mad, worrying that I had ovulated early (due to lots of ovary pain and lovely EGCM)… but that was just my worry-wart head trying to stress me out! We turned up nice and early … More Hurdle no.7 – Egg Collection! (finally!)
Good news – today’s scan showed 6 follicles in the “mature” range (14-18mm) with three right at 17/18mm, and another 5 follicles just out of range at around 13mm. With a lining at 11.1mm and a oestrogen level of 3000+ that means that we are all go for Monday morning and egg collection! Fingers crossed that … More Hurdle no.6 – day 17 scan… stage 1 complete!
Wahey!!! My little (well not so little anymore) follicles are finally growing! Obviously at least some of them like the new dose of Menopur 🙂 My biggest is now 16mm – with most of the others between 11 and 14 mm and a straggler or two at 9/10mm. Strange realisation that the combined size of all of … More Hurdle no.5 – day 15 scan… well done follicles!
Today is going to be officially named “Rollercoaster Day” in honour of the madness that has happened. It started out simply – I went in for my day 13 scan, after a weekend of being on 225 units of Menopur. There was a mini disaster on Friday, when half of it leaked over my stomach … More Hurdle no.4 – day 13 scan… aka Rollercoaster Day
So I think this image sums up what my follicles are currently doing… The little wotsits are being stubborn and refusing to grow! I realised that there was something slightly wrong when the first nurse did my scan – she went very quiet and then then brightly said “your uterus lining has grown and looks … More Hurdle no.3 – day 10 scan
This morning I went for my day 8 scan. If it really was hurdles – I jumped confidently, but caught my foot – which has slowed me down and cast some doubt over whether I will finish the race… The positives…. I have 14 growing follicles (8 on my right ovary and 6 on my left. Well done … More Hurdle no.2 – Day 8 scan
