2nd IUI attempt on Friday

If there is a god, he will see that I've done all I can to try and make this next attempt a successful one. I've had acupuncture, tried to walk for 20 minutes a day when I can, taken special conception vitamins, given up caffeine and alcohol and ate healthily.

Friday is going to be a busy day, acupuncture session before and after my insemination on the same day, baring in mind that I've also got to allow 3 hours to get there!!

It doesn't seem fair when there are people falling pregnant all the time naturally but us lovely ladies are putting so much effort, time and money in to it. I'm sure some of the best mums would be the ones that can't have any for whatever sad reason x

  • Hey,

    Without faith I wouldn't get through all this. I am waiting til January to implant my cool kids. I too have do the acupuncture for 3 Months, royal jelly, maca, omega 3 , pre mummy vits, given up chocolate, white sugar, caffeine, lost 3 kilos walking the dog. He thinks his Christmases have all come at once bless.

    Last time they got 16, fertilised 15 and by day 3 all but 4 of bad quality died. Implanted 2 and the other 2 never made it.

    This time I had 8 and 6 made it to day 2 all frozen due to ohss, praying that they survive the defrost and Continue to develop.

    I only got 8 as I had a major panic attack and was sick at the egg collection, no general anaesthetic here πŸ˜•

    Without faith and an amazing hubby I know thee is no way I'd get through this. I have to believe and know that what will be will be.

    Sending you a massive e hug and loads of baby dust xx

    PS. Totally agree that people seem to get pregnant just crossIng on the street and that the women like us would and will make great mummys good Ness knows it has been hard to even go through what we have so far xx

  • Thank you for your kind comments.

    What was it like without any anaesthetic?

    Good luck to you too and let me know how you get on x

  • Maybe not brave... crazy is more likely.

  • Oh dear! All the best to you x

  • That would of freaked me out!! x

  • I wish you all the luck in the world,I work in a dental practice and when you see patients come in with there newborns or are pregnant and it kills that it can be so easy and it angers me when I get other patients come in and there kids are in care or not looked after and I think why is it so easy for them and not for me,I totally agree us ladies on here would make the best mums as our goal is to be a mum and what we put our selfs through to get that chance so baby dust to all xx

  • Yes, I've found that where ever you go there are a lot of kids and like you have said, some of them are just not cut out to be mums.

    Wishing you all the best too x

  • Best of luck and well wishes for Friday!! Can empathise with you all, I've never in nearly a decade of ttc resented someone for being pregnant, but I'm loosing my strength now. Found out a not so nice person is due their 5th child, 4th was only born in January of this year. Not one child planned. Don't get me wrong I don't wish anyone to not get pregnant, just wish I was too.

    Be thinking of you tomorrow xx

  • Thank you - wishing you all the best too x
