FET cycle... Some reflection

Morning all!

Yesterday was a tough day for me like I'm sure it is for so many of you on this wonderful forum, I hope you are all doing ok.

I'd been feeling a little down in the run up to Mother's Day, this cycle feels like it's taking forever - we started injections over a month ago now! So yesterday I took some time to reflect on what we've been through so far and gave myself a mental pat on the back. I am a tough cookie and not about to crumble yet 😉

I started taking the progynova (oestrogen) tablets just over a week ago and I have a check up scan on Wednesday to see how my lining is coming along. Hoping it's getting nice and juicy!

Thaw date is booked in for 7th April, so I've booked the day off work and arranged to have reflexology at 9am so I'm nice and relaxed for transfer. I've read some things online (damn you google) about embryo survival from being thawed and hoping at least one of our two survives 🙏🏻 Staying away from google now as much as I can!

Have a good day everyone xxxx

Hi Sprinkles86. Just wanted to wish you well withthe scan on Wednesday. I realise what an anxious time it will be for you, but your embryologist will look after your little frosties with great care, I'm sure. Good to hear that you are going to be chilled out on the day of transfer, so that's something else going for you. Good luck with it all. Thinking of you. Diane

Thanks Diane, I think as it's our first frozen cycle I'm probably worrying too much about it! What will be will be 🙏🏻

Hi Sprinkles86. Anything new is scary, but trust your embryologist, as he/she wants it to work too. Diane

Ah thanks KiraJean that's really kind of you to say! Although what I've been through has been awful, I've always tried to stay focused on our dream and this has kept me strong. How long do you have left in your 2ww? Xxx
