Here we go again....... DE in Cyprus

Well today I came on and so is day 1 of my 2nd DE cycle in a clinic in Cyprus. Last October we had a chemical but picked myself up and now the time has arrive very quickly for another go!

I feel different this time more relaxed about the treatment as I know what's going to happen and where everything is done but I have this big feeling of anxiety that it may not work again.

This time they are putting me on metformin to help with implantation I didn't have that last time I have had the scratch last week I've lost weight and eating healthy. I can't do anymore than what I'm doing. So drugs start tomorrow to start this rollercoaster ride that is IVF. So many hurdles to get through but on the 7th March I know if it's worked or not. We fly out 17th staying for 10 days this time to relax after transfer I'm actually looking forward to getting away from work for a good break! Xx

  • Hi Blondyboo,

    As you know, I too came on yesterday and start ivf today.

    I'm sorry to hear about your chemical last October. Similarly, I had an early miscarriage last October too so understand how difficult and anxiety provoking all of this can be and how badly we want to do everything in our power to make it right this time.

    It sounds like you've done everything you could possibly do though hun, you're in a strong position for success and it's great that you're taking an extended break after transfer. I booked time off work this time too to eliminate the stress factor.

    They haven't mentioned metformin to me, I might ask about that at my baseline scan today.

    How was your scratch? We'd only heard of it while I was ill in hospital last month, we did look into paying privately for it but I seemed to pick up every illness going during Jan, and as I was so run down I didn't want to run the risk of post - scratch infection too. Had I been fit I'd have gone for it though.

    I know it's hard to put the anxiety aside as so much is riding on this but I hope you and I both are able to find a place of peace within ourselves to know we've done all we can do and are already wonderful and caring mother's for all the efforts we've made to welcome our babies into a nurturing space.

    Big luck and love for your every success xx

  • Thank you for your messages, Pookymama - scratch was ok not as painful as last time! I had it again as I did last time and wanted no regrets. I did get implantion last time weather the scratch helped or not I don't know but didn't want to risk not doing it again. I had it done in Bristol cost Β£150,

    We seem to be syincing this cycle so will be following you too! You haveing donor eggs like me or your own? X
