Hi ladies, not been on here in what feels like forever. Just wanted to share my story for those of you struggling with treatments and scans and all the emotions that goes with the roll coaster that is struggling to conceive. My husband and I have been trying for 3 years to start a family, both young and healthy with no medical issues apart from PCO for myself.
In December we finally went through our first IVF cycle after several months using clomid to no avail. I was devastated when it failed. I assumed, naively, that IVF would work no problem and we would be well on our way to parenthood.
After the failed cycle I looked into things such as accupuntute and other such alternative medicines. I found an excellent accupuncturist and began attending fortnightly with my husband. At first, I didn't feel any different. It felt awkward and strange and to be honest not really relaxing. However, after the second session, I began to enjoy the treatment more.
I felt ready to undertake our frozen cycle and so had been taking my nasal spray for my down regulation ready to embark on the IVF journey in May. I attended my hospital appointment, having had a bleed in April and one in May after using my spray for a few weeks.
At the appointment, to my utter astonishment, we found out we were pregnant. On our own. No stimuli. That was back on May 17th. Having now had an early scan and a dating scan yesterday putting me at 13 weeks I wanted to share this experience with you all. Miracles can happen. Don't lose hope, take care and thoughts are with you all 💕💕💕💙💕💕💕
