Third time lucky?

I'm trying to be positive for our third and final round. Started injections last Thursday so hoping to go in for EC some time next week.

It's so hard to be hopeful when u haven't been in the past.

If this fails I don't know what we're going to do?? Have talked about doing it abroad (this is our only option due to the finance sides of things). Really not sure what I wanna do, my husband wants to call it a day after this cycle.

I am also studying at the moment so life is a little stressy at the mo.

I'm determined to be positive and relaxed! Eeeek!

Have I got any cycle buddies out there?

  • Hey Hun just wanted to say good luckk. It is hard after a failed treatment to get your positive vibes up! Just look on the brighter side of things; I always say to my husband that we are lucky to have each other and everything else is a blessing. Try and stay relaxed which is probably easier said than done! Maybe plan a day doing something doesn't have to be expensive just a day that you and hubby can spend quality time together xx

  • I am a cycle buddyπŸ˜€we have just started injections yesterday..our first cycle so full of anxiety and excitement.. I have a very stressful job and also am a very determined independent woman..my husband says stubbornπŸ˜‰I think my stress probably not helped us trying to conceive naturally so determined to chill out during this process..easier said than done I feel so finally admitted defeat with juggling work and this and have taken time off to chill, relax and focus on success πŸ˜€sending you skybid lots of luck xx

  • I can be a buddie! im doing DE in Cyprus started Meds this week ET is 6th October :) xx

  • Hey

    Totally get what you're getting, I start injecting on the 28th, also for the third time, not feeling positive just going through the motions. Praying for a miracle in my last try.

    Fingers and toes crossed for us both

  • It does get harder with each BFN and now more pressure now this is the last cycle. Have you made any changes? Done acupuncture? Etc? The doctor said my ovaries look healthier this time?? Dunno if that's given me a bit of false hope or not??

    I'm hoping to have a couple days off off after transfer depending on how it falls as I've got work the first few days of the month due to my job.

    Good luck! Xx

  • Hey skybid

    My second time I did a super healthy diet, 4 months of acupuncture weekly, cut out caffeine. I don't smoke or drink so that was easy.

    It made no difference whatsoever. Infact I felt more stressed than ever.

    This time I'm going with the flow. I'm not unhealthy, not over weight so am not making any changes.

    Still praying, most of all for the strength to make it through this either way.

    Emotionally I find the lows really hard to deal with. I'm usually a positive happy person and hate the way the hormones change me.

    Praying for a miracle like everyone hereπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  • I've got my fet next Thursday. It will be my 3rd transfer. I feel less hopeful this time - those bfn's can make it really hard to keep your belief in the process and chance of success. But I also feel calmer somehow. Don't think I'm putting so much expectation on it this time. Also working through where as I've had sick leave before! Hoping the carrying on as normal might be the key to success ;). Here's hoping it's 3rd time lucky for us both xx

  • I had acupuncture through the first 2 cycles but have stopped now as getting expensive. Apart from the obvious things like not drinking and eating healthily I am doing nothing this time. Think that has helped me in a way as can just go with it a bit more instead of thinking everyday about what i need to do help the process. I believe that anything there is good evidence of that helps that the drs would have told you about.

    Our 2nd fresh cycle was much better than our first and we never dreamed we would have anything to freeze. You can definitely have big changes from cycle to cycle so I would take the healthy ovaries comment as a positive! Although we have agreed we will have 1 more go after this, I can feel we are getting closer to the end of the journey and it is such a difficult thought that we may not be successful. I've tried to put that thought out of my head and just think I will deal with it if I comes to that. So hard to do though.

    Good luck to you too xxx

  • I totally get what you mean Anna. In the beginning everyone is so optimistic and you get carried away. As cycles roll by then it gets more and more realistic.

    You also know what to do as you've been there.

    Hoping this is your time honeyπŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

  • Hope this is your time too πŸ’•. You definitely get to feel like an expert as you go through more cycles! And being realistic does help me. I've not told anyone this time as I found it hard dealing with others excitement. I've found it even more helpful having the forum because of that and so helpful to know I am going through this with others xxx

  • I know how you feel I am about to start 3rd cycle aswell.first BFN then second a chemical so hoping its third time lucky. We have changed clinics and protocol so hoping it works it's magic xxx

  • Hi Skybid I just wanted to wish you a huge amount of luck for this cycle. It's good to have a plan and a focus for if this doesn't work but let's hope that this is your time x x x
