We all need a good cry.....

When I last posted I was looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend and my Birthday, which started well with a great night away with friends but ended with a full birthday meltdown on Monday and not just because I turned a year older! 644 more words

Another Follicle Update

I had my second follicle monitoring ultrasound appointment today. I went into it a tiny bit less calm and confident than the first one but overall I handled everything well. 675 more words


Observation scan #3

I’ve had three different nurses do each of my scans. #1 was lovely, #2 not so much, she didn’t really engage in conversation, but pleasant still, #3 at first we winced at her cold introduction, but we soon warmed to her awkwardness. 164 more words

Observation scan #2

All looks okay, my little pebbles are growing. Sadly my right ovary just doesn’t want to cooperate as much, it’s a bit lazy and standing it’s ground with just 5 follies. 49 more words

Day 35: Thunderbirds are go!

5… 4… 3… 2… 1…

My stubborn lazy follicles finally decided to get to the magic 18! 761 more words


Observation scan #1

I had my first scan (internal) this morning to check on my follicles. I couldn’t sleep last night from worrying about “what if’s”, the top one being what if I haven’t responded to the meds and I have to have the dose upped and then risk OHHS (Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome), even though I know it doesn’t work that way. 202 more words

IUI # 3

Well, the wait is over! I had my third IUI today (along with bloodwork and ultrasound). I was in very good spirits this morning; had a good laugh with the lab technician, and felt optimistic about my chances this round. 294 more words
