Gob Smacked!

After nearly 3 years of TTC and then going private for fertility treatment I find out I'm pregnant! All my medication (delivered & paid for £700!!) is sitting in my cupboards and fridge as I was waiting for my menstral cycle to begin to start the injections! I was so shocked I had to do 3 tests just incase! Still shocked! Going to the doctors tomorrow for my 1st appointment. Feeling strange and overwhelmed! Keep positive ladies as miracles do happen. There's a few things I have changed in the last year which is drinking regular pine apple juice, only having white wine spritzers if I go out for a drink, religiously taking Conception Support & Folic Acid (both Boots own make). I don't know if any, all or none of these have helped but I wanted to share it with you lovely ladies incase it helps someone else. I also used an App on my IPhone called "My Days" which helped a lot re days i ovulating etc. It's still early days and I know I have to look after myself but I've dreamt about this moment for such a long time. If I can help you ladies out with anything and provide hope then hold onto that hope as miracles do happen!! Xx

  • Congratulations!! That's really wonderful news! How far along are you? Wishing you a healthy and happy pregnancy :)

    I am also TTC and due for excision surgery in a few weeks. I was hoping to get pregnant naturally before the surgery but it looks like that won't happen, so I have my fingers crossed the surgery will help me and I will have another chance at TTC naturally before considering IVF...


  • Thanks Soub. I'm roughly 3-4 weeks. Very early stages but as I said I'm so shocked! Wishing you all the luck in the world Hun hope you havr some great news too very soon! Fingers and toes crossed! Xx

  • Huge congratulations hunni.D I am so happy for you . You're dead right miracles can and do happen. We're gonna keep trying till we start our ivf the way we see it it can't do any harm with ur mind off less it u never no ur luck ;) wishing u a very healthy and happy pregnancy . Take care of yourself and ur precious little baby so thrilled for you :) X x x x

  • Thanks Jess it is a miracle. Can't believe everything was put in place for IVF after we had been trying for so long then boom right before we start the medication everything falls into place. I do feel really lucky but mindful at the same time it is early days. Don't know what to do with a this mediation now as it's all still packaged. A part of me thinks I should still hold on to it just incase but then I think to myself I shouldn't think like that! Emotions are all over the place! Xx

  • Thanks for the useful tip I've just downloaded he my days app on my i phone :) wishing you all the best for ur new exciting journey enjoy it you've waited a long time for this to happen.

  • It's a good lil App Hun helped me loads. Wishing you all the luck too Hun. Xx

  • Thanks Hun. I found the App really useful! Can't wait for the the next few months! Xx

  • Congratulations Mooster1 :) xxx

  • Thanks Hun. Xx

  • This is amazing news!!! x

  • Thanks Hun. It is amazing. Xx

  • Wow... that is great. Really really keep looking after yourself. I'm 8 weeks gone and all that makes me feel better is SLEEP. I am as healthy as I can be but when I need to sleep I just do it. Husband is very supportive and is completely involved and engaged which is brilliant.

    Your emotions are definitely going to be all over the place but keep focusing on the positive. I too have medications in my fridge (we were given double by accident but told to hold on to them 'just in case')... they are tucked away behind various things so I don't even think about the 'just in case'!

    This is amazing news for all of us... little miracles... I am so pleased for you!

  • Awww Hun that's fab news for you too! I still can't take it In! Me and hubby have waited for so long and just as we about to start the fertility I fall pregnant. I feel so lucky but scared at the same time. Being very cautious and know it's early days. I to have left the medication in the fridge. I will wait for a while and then try and figure out what to do with it! Look after yourself Hun. Xx

  • We tried for nearly four years on and off so I know what the wait feels like. I've been as chilled as possible about it and apart from a couple of days recently feeling quite sick and headachy (thankfully subsided after some decent sleep) I've felt fine. I'm not doing anything massively different and my body is naturally seeking the right food and drink (ham sandwiches and my thing at the moment!!)... It is SO exciting and yes it is early days for both of us but for us even to get this far is special... Keep enjoying :-)

  • Totally agree Hun. It is special. You will have to keep me posted. Look after yourself. Xx
