We are just waiting to start our first IVF cycle as I have to take the pill for 21 days to try and induce a bleed. We popped into a bookshop on the way home from our coordination appt and I found a copy of 'Get a life. A his and hers guide to IVF'. I just wanted to say I have found it extremely refreshing and so helpful. It tells you everything practical that you need to know but also the emotional side. It also tells it from a male and female perspective which has really helped me to understand how my hubby might be feeling through all of this. Most helpfully I think it has shown me that I'm not alone in my emotions. The anger, frustration and deep sadness is written in an honest and actually humorous way. It also helps to remind me that there is more to life than IVF and I am not worthless because of what is happening.
If anyone is struggling on the journey it might be worth a read.
Just thought I'd share.
Is anyone else looking to start the cycle around 18/10/15?
Good luck to everyone xx
