Nerve wracking

I'd never imagined the lasts stages would be so nerve wracking. You start your up medication nerves are in a mess as you're panicking the follicles won't grow enough. Then you go for egg collection worrying you won't have any! First thing I did when conscious enough was ask how many eggs we got... And now I'm waiting to hear if any of our 5 collected eggs fertilised. Oh missed out the point of my husband being all over the place worrying about his sample although I was sure he'd be ok I still worried too. And then if we have one good enough there's the seriously nerve wracking 2ww. I'm so glad I found this place and all of you know these feelings!!!

  • Aww bless you. Sending you loads of love. They are not lying when they say it is an emotional rollercoaster are they! I suppose distraction is the best thing to do - I watched box sets (things that really engaged me) so I could literally forget about it for an hour and put it out of my mind, found other things to do, hobbies etc. Work really helped as it distracted me from it all. I also kept a diary of how I was feeling each day. This was really useful as when I had a bad day I could read all the positive things I'd written when I had a good day. Lots of love xxxx

  • Thank you Jenny, having my transfer tomorrow now as heard back that 3 of my eggs fertilized ok and you have to have 4 with ours for blastocyst but as everyone says it only takes one. I think these next 18 days are going to be the worst! All the best xxx

  • Good luck today Lhow81! It's such a wonderful experience watching your transfer. The next two weeks will be the hardest of your life but I recommend writing down each day your symptoms so you can monitor how your feeling. It helped me anyway. Also after the first couple of days of relaxing try your best to get back to normal routine and keep moving as this helps your body to keep everything stimulated. Good luck let us know how you get on xxxx

  • Good luck, it is really a stressful time. try and do some daily meditation, relaxing, breathing and thinking postive thoughts about the embryos, willing them to grow and divide and bury them in your thick lining.
