Positive feeling!!!!!

Hi all x I wanted to post today as I woke up with a huge positive feeling today. I am seriously kicking ivf's ass!!! Lol

I was SSSOOOOOO petrified of the whole thing and really didnt think I would ever be able to inject but I am doing this. I am injecting myself and apart from feeling a little up and down and hot sweats I am feeling great and positive that this will all be worth it. I am still only at the first hurdle but fingers crossed its all going to plan and i can keep up this PMA x

How is everybody else feeling today?!?

Hi mrsmc84. Well done you! Good to hear that you are getting the hang of it and not suffering too much. At least you are up and running now and I wish you all the best during this cycle. Diane

That is brilliant to read!!! I really believe that positivity is a huge part of IVF!! It helped me, I refused to let it get me down or consume my life and it worked!! We are pregnant with Twins! (hope you don't mind me saying that). I think positivity helps your body cope!! Go kick IVF's butt and keep going! you are doing amazing and it will all be worth it!! :-) GO YOU!! :-) xxx

I love posts like this as they give me hope and make me smile!! Well done on making such a great start and as I'm about to start the process, your bravery will hopefully rub off on me!! I'm very nervous of that very first injection but I think it may be a case of mind over matter. Any tips you ladies have will be more than welcome! X

You will be absolutely fine I promise. I had a huge needle phobia but by injecting myself it's my little bit of control on the whole thing. I have been told that if you hold ice on the spot your injecting you dont feel it but I havent felt the need to. It stings a tiny bit but its over in a min. You can do it!!!!! Go girl xxx

I started my injections this morning and managed to inject myself too!! I was terrified and cried a bit before the needle even went in lol it wasn't as bad as I thought, I think the trick is to go fast :-)
