Just finished my first round of ivf

I am new to this site... only my husband and I know about our ivf journey, so we only have each other to talk to so I thought it would be nice to join a community. I am expecting to have my results next Thursday. We had two good quality blasts transferred. Anxiously waiting as I am 39 and so ready to start a family!

Good luck!

It's so difficult to talk about IVF with friends and family, I've recently opened up to a few people but have been vague about start dates, etc so they don't ask too many questions.

Fingers crossed for you! :)

Thanks for your reply! Yes we find it difficult. Not sure people understand unless they go through it.

We also don't want to re live any possible disappointment! However, it is stressful if it is just the two of you!

I appreciate your reply.

Good luck to you too!! 🍀

Hi, Just wanted to say I did the say with the exception of my boss. I couldn't handle the idea of having to tell everyone all the time what was happening and how I was. For me it was easier to cope just managing mine and my husbands feelings. It was a good experience for us, and I'm now on the long wait to 12 weeks so I can tell them what we've been through these last few months. Good luck xxx

Good luck, you've come to the right place! I would say though we told our friends, and not only was it a support for me, it really helped my husband to share the load! Ththey totally understood and then you don't feel so isolated. Obviously we are all different, and this site is great, but just wanted to say sometimes a bit of extra support can be amazing xx

Good luck Beebeestar. I've found this forum the most amazing source of support when I'm confused, excited, concerned, sad, frustrated and smiling. Welcome. We start our next IVF cycle in May. Good luck. Sounds like you've had a good journey so far :) xx

Wishing you lots of baby dust!!! I'm in your same shoes and 1 yr older. We have not told anyone we are going through IVF it's scary cause if one thing goes wrong my family would be devastated but thank god everything so far has gone smooth for us. We also had to embryos transferred on 2/1. Now we are patiently waiting...

Same boat as you but starting next week on the long protocol. I told my mum and she wanted to put the injections in her diary! Ok she's dyslexic and that's the only way she remembers things but it's seriously put me off telling anyone else!

Good luck with the 2ww x
