UGH seems like all I do in this journal lately is say I am waiting to the next blood test. And I am saying it again. Blood test tomorrow to see if my numbers are at zero. Still no bleeding and I think the doctor is a bit confused as to why.
Anyway! I guess that is it for now!!
posted this today on another board. thought I would keep it here as a reminder
As for getting pregnant naturally again I dont think DH and I would know what to do any more :lmao: IVF sort of gets in the way of a love life.
Here is a run down on a normal IVF cycle.
When you start the pill its okay but if you are like me your head is replaced by the head of a bear and there is no way any normal DH would want to come near you.
Then you start shoving Synarel spray up your nose and that makes you grumpy and drys you out in the mucous department and you also lose your sex drive(if you still have any left over from the pill, that is)
Then you start on the injections which in a matter of days makes you bloated as your follicles start to grow and the bruises on your belly hurt as well.
You walk funny you look like you are pregnant and it hurts to go anywhere, especially in a car over bumpy roads and the thoughts of sex that have been gone since the synarel days wont ever come back.
Then you have your OPU(ovum(egg) pick up) where they stick a needle attached to a vaginal ultrasound through the wall of your cervix into your ovary or tube and peirce your follicles and drain them collecting your eggs so when you go home you are tired and spotting and even though some of the bloatyness is gone you still feel bloated and sore.
Two days later you have your embryo transfered into your uterus and from that night you start inserting lovely crinone gel up your clacker and you do so for two weeks afterwards.
Sex is a no no, especially after a transfer but also if you have had a miscarriage you cant have sex until you are cleared to do so which is bound to be at least 12 weeks pregnant. and that is if YOU feel up to it.
I mean apart from the fact that the bloating and the extra weight you put on during that time and the fact that it does not come down or go away until you start bleeding. I feel awful!!
So there you go! Would you want to be having sex after that?
CD1 today on to IVF # 2 and hopefully last!!!!
Well the bleeding started this morning. About time.
I have closure on this cycle now even though I mourned the loss of the pregnancy a couple of weeks ago.
I am going to talk to my doctor about more serious support and help with passing the 5 week mark and having a succesful pregnancy as I can NOT go through a 7th miscarriage!!!
On saturday I woke up with this really bad stitch like pain in my right side. It was horrible but it got worse over the course fo the day and the night. the next day I called the IVF nurses and they said it didnt sound right. so yesterday(monday I heard back from my doctor and she said that she thinks the pain is from the corpus luteam of the left over empty follicles breaking down.
She said if the pain lingers to go in and see her. I have decided to go and see her anyway to talk about the better support after the transfer so I guess we'll see what she says
the pain went away yesterday which is good I guess. means the doc was right
Seeing the doc on the 26th................. 8 days to go!
I start the pill tonight.
I am a bit nervous heading into another cycle but who wouldn't be I suppose. I am confident about getting pregnant again. I guess its just a matter of getting the baby to stick in there for 9 months.
I hope the doctor has some answers for me.
Still strolling along here. Still on the pill and at this stage its pretty boring.
I have had a bit of trouble sleeping lately but last night I seemed to havre slept much better though still not entirely undisturbed.
Hopefully tonight is better
Next wednesday I start sniffing the synarel spray so it will feel al little more closer then!
Started sniffing the synarel this morning.
Its gross stuff but I have to do what I have to do.
I have also decided I need to get myself a healthier so I have borrowed a treadmill and am going to start with an hour a day and then try to increase it to two hours a day over a week and then increase the pace after that. slow and steady right!
I have a new weight loss ticker but its not my biggest goal of this new health kick. it will only be a side effect.....allbeit a good one!
Synarel is as disgusting as I remeber it to be. It tastes like someone has poured nail polish down the back of your throat! Yeah that gross!!!
I got a gorgeous present in the mail yesterday from my friend Susan. It was a little piece of Amber for me to hold on to and a rock with a frog shape cut into it for Martin to hold on to. They are supposed to be great for fertility and they certainly worked for her as she is now pregnant with TWINS woohoo! She also sent a CD which is for meditation through a medicated fertility cycle. I cant wait to start using it. might have a listen this afternoon!
I stop the pill next wednesday so hopefully I have some bleeding before my scan on the 19th!
well I take my last pill tonight. Im all excited!
AF should arrive sometime in the next couple of days and then I have my down reg scan next wednesday when I will start my injections.
Things will move quickly from there on in!
Well I am still waiting for AF. I am supposed to have my scan tomorrow and start my injections but if I have my scan and there is still no bleeding then I will have to wait to bleed to start injections. UGH more waiting.
There was also issues this week with my husbands job and the fact work had stalled and we were unsure as to weather we could even go ahead with the IVF cos we could not afford to pay right now. but we worked it out with with accounts dept and we can go ahead with the cycle!! woo hoo!!
Now if only AF would arrive today!!
