Drugs and "Dildo-cam"

Bring it on, Round 2, ding ding!

I was nursing a secret hope (again!) that despite 4 years of evidence to the contrary, a miracle might have taken place and I would actually, finally be pregnant, just in the nick of time before I start pumping drugs into my body again.

How I manage to get my hopes up EVERY month I have no idea, but my imagination totally runs away with itself. In my head I am finding sweet ways to delight family and friends with "our happy news" - and my husband, how to tell him?! I am shopping for baby stuff with my Mum and thinking of names and planning all things infantile...!

I try to ignore any cramps, deny any PMT symptoms and hang on hopefully, every fibre of my body wishing my period away!

Sadly this was not to be.

I know I'm lucky to be able to have another go at IVF and who knows, this time all the injections and "dildo-cam" sessions might just pay off!

Good luck to everyone starting treatment in April, here's to lots of April (baby) showers!

  • Good luck with your 2nd cycle.

    Mine is my second cycle too, hoping to start mid April or May. Hopefully it's 2nd time lucky πŸ€ for us xx

  • I know what you mean - hope springs eternal! Although I'm just about to start my second cycle too and I feel much less hopeful than I did for the first one :-( when do you start and are you on the long or short protocol?

  • Hi Charlene, I'm starting on 10th April - long protocol. Don't despair! It's natural to feel anxious but there are lots of us in the same boat, so we can virtually hold each other's hands and definitely hope for the best. When does yours start? Xxx

  • Good luck! I love the term "dildo cam" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - we really do have no choice but to laugh at these things do we! I still remember my first ever fertility clinic appointment and having to have an internal ultrasound when I had my period - I was absolutely mortified! Now I've almost got my knickers off before I'm through the door and just don't give a damn anymore πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
