Post down-reg Flo you're not my friend! ๐Ÿ˜‰

AF arrived in the early hours this morning 4 days after finishing the down-regging drugs. Initially pleased that my body is responding to the process as it should, but now I'm having the period from hell, feel like I've been run over and I'm laid up on the sofa like a bloke with man-flu! I thought after all my healthy eating, no alcohol, no caffeine campaign id be bouncing with health. Looking forward to the stims starting this week so we can get this show on the road! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Hope you're all having a good weekend xx

Hope you're feeling better soon. I came on today too, feeling absolutely wiped!! I'm on metformin for PCOS and my blood sugar went really low today so I've been spaced out and my mouth went all tingly...was a bit weird. Oh the joys and fun we have to go through! Try to keep positive and keep focussing on the stims this week... I've had to have some cake to feel better today... needs must ๐Ÿ˜‰ xx

Thanks Kat9lives ๐Ÿ˜Š I had a bizarre out of body experience yesterday in the hairdressers when I 'lost' about 20mins, I had to ask if she'd cut my hair before blow drying it as I honestly couldn't remember her doing it! Really hoping it's the hormones, not me starting to lose the plot!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ It freaked me out so much I had to have a Danish to make me feel better! Xx

Horrid isn't it, have you tried fresh lemon and ginger with honey? Ginger is a natural pain killer even smelling it helps some girls ๐Ÿ˜˜

Love the fact you've had a danish and dominos! I've tried to eat more of a protein based diet, however we've been staying in a log cabin this week for my hubbys bday so ended up having a fish and chip pub lunch with brownie pudding!! And then tonight went out with with the whole family for a late bday meal and had chips and another brownie! ๐Ÿ˜‚ The way I see it, is to carry on as normal but just a bit healthier (or try too) when i've been pregnant before (although all ended in miscarriage) I was just eating as normal and just living life, so thats what i'm doubg this time round, although eating my brazil nuts every day and will eat my pineapple core from day of transfer. Hope your ok. I replied to your question on the other post, hope you've seen it xx

Mainly been eating more protein, chicken salads for lunch and omlettes and veg for tea with fruit, but mainly trying to keep my weight down as i'm borderline bmi higher level ๐Ÿ˜ฌ But have just had a twitl with my brew! Couldn't resist! Did you ring about your scan today? xx
