Hello there fellow fertility pals.
Just wondering how everyone is coping with ye ole ivf side effects?
Having completed my first week of down regging relatively unscathed apart from some potential hot flushes (a not too unpleasant diversion for a usual freezer), and night sweats (let's face it, never pleasant or attractive, especially with the inclusion of slightly damp, Worzelesque hair), today af came to create what can only be described as a dazzling combination of af and menopause levels of, erm, interest.
I have had a grand total of 3 uncontrollable, weepy outbursts in the last few hours alone. The first happened quite spontaneously as I saw my dh off on his night shift and on his motorcycle for the first time this year.
My tears partially said "don't go and leave me to do the "just a little prick" routine with the burserlin alone, but also, and rather irrationally also said "don't die on your motorcycle and leave me forever!" So, he left me looking like a rather hysterical Bette Davis in 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane' which I took a little more time than is reasonable to pull myself out of... see, here comes the irrational...
The second bout of snot and saline came and attractively stop-started whilst watching a rather moving episode of 'The Voice' and the third more typically when reading a fertility article.
So, just wondering how my fellow IVFERS are bearing up and if we're all going to need shares in kleenex by the end of this decidedly soggy road?
Big luck and love to you all, wherever you are on this journey. May the magic happen soon xxx
