Hello! Firstly – a big SORRY for anyone who reads my blog. I haven’t died, been abducted, joined a cult, become a hermit or decided to avoid the internet. I have, however, become “that blogger” that promises to keep writing and then life takes over & they completely forget! So a little update – I’m … More It’s been too long…
I haven’t posted in a little while – mainly because I was IN SHOCK, and secondarily because it was Christmas & New Year and absolutely manically busy!! I’ll explain a bit more why I was IN SHOCK (yes, yes, it needs the capitals!) below… My last post was about our rollercoaster time before doing the … More here we go again!
It starts by going up… Just like a roller-coaster, yesterday my day started with going up… lots of positivity. I felt so much better from my recent tummy bug, no sickness and was full of the joys of life! I did lots of exciting things – planned the food for our christmas party at the … More Roller-coaster days
Here I am… at the start of the two week (well, 12 day) wait of this cycle of IVF. Today I had my embryo transfer which went *thankfully* like clockwork. The little defrosted blastocyst looked as good as can be – so we’re in a good place for some positive thoughts. I hate the term … More the TART
Gaaaaaah! I can be such a stresshead sometimes. Every single minute I am comparing pregnancy symptoms now to what I was experiencing at this stage last time…. every. single. minute…!!!! It doesn’t help that there are loads of things going on at the moment… Works sucks..! Yes truly and more than usual. Grievances being raised, … More Stress
Don’t really have words to describe what I’m feeling! Officially 4 weeks and 3 days pregnant! Eeeeek! Can’t really let myself feel it yet…. doesn’t even feel real. Fingers, toes and all limbs crossed for viability scan and a teeny tiny heartbeat on the 18th July… It’s so strange how the IVF process lets you … More eeek! Poppy seed!
Wow time has flown! I’ve managed to survive the treatment side of this FET cycle – the injections, tablets, pessaries and enormous mood swings! On top of that, work has been hellish and it has been SO FREAKIN HOT! Therefore I’m officially awarding myself with a medal (made of chocolate, naturally) for getting to this … More Embryo on board
Tuesday this week was our meeting with the IVF consultant to talk about starting a FET cycle soon. Our childcare fell through so we had to take our son with us and I felt SO SO embarrassed! I remember being pissed off at women who had their children with them when I was being treated … More Just a little scratch?
When I think about the first 4 years of our marriage, there was always one question that we seemed to endlessly get from family, friends and random people in the supermarket – yes THAT question… “So when are you going to have a baby?” It generally made me feel like this… Of course, they didn’t … More THAT question
Firstly, a massive THANK YOU to everyone who has read or commented on my blog – believe me, I don’t think I would have survived the year without you. Both blogging and reading the blogs of other people going through similar experiences has helped me through what I think has been one of the toughest years … More 1 year blogiversary
