Can't believe it's almost time!!

Hey all,

So I can't believe on Thursday I will be starting my first injection for IVF. I've been waiting for this day for a year and now it's here I can't quite believe it.

Would love any tips regarding injections or how to stay strong through treatment. Anything you ladies done that you felt made a different to your treatment ๐Ÿ˜Š

This website has been amazing throughout my wait and I know it'll be just as amazing through my treatment and I want to thank all you lovely ladies for all your support and advice. It's been a massive help as struggling with infertility can be such a lonely place.

I took my last pill on Friday and can feel AF is going to be a brutal one. My stomach, boobs and head hurts today and I keep getting hot sweats. I'm praying this will be my last period for a long time and hope I get that BFP!

Good luck all ๐Ÿ€ xxx

  • Hey hun so exciting. I had eggs collected yesterday on my first cycle and in on Saturday for transfer. My advice really is to stay as relaxed as possible so be very very kind to yourself... lots of box sets๐Ÿ˜‰I did acupuncture too. Also my husband did the injections which helped. We took it all one step at a time and tried to giggle lots along the way so far apart from today where I feel physically and emotionally floored๐Ÿ˜ฏgood luck and fingers crossed for you xx
