Just got back on the rollercoaster and strapped myself in..round 4 here we go πŸ™πŸ»

Hi everyone, this morning I've had my initial scan & bloods ready for our 4th IVF cycle..everything looked good & ready on the scan so I'm just waiting for the blood work back to confirm my hormone levels are where they should be. If they are I start stims tomorrow..I'm on a mixture of Gonal F and menopur which is new for me and a higher dose than the previous two fresh cycles which I'm a teeny bit nervous about as I was over stimulating on a lower dose on our very first cycle but the clinic are doing all they can to ensure we get more eggs this time and they're going to keep a close eye on me just in case.

Feeling the usual..nerves mixed with excitement although the excitement is definitely not what it was on previous cycles, I'm a bit jaded after so many failures but I know that's normal and today now that things are actually moving again there's more excitement than there has been since our last failed cycle! My hubby is even more positive than usual (he's definitely a glass half full, if not brimming over!!) he's convinced this is our time and I feel such a negative nelly with him sometimes as I just can't channel that much optimism 😏

Hoping for 4th time lucky and for lots of other good news on here from all you lovely ladies in the coming months. We are amazing to keep going through the lows of fertility treatment xx

  • Thank you Cocker_crazy, I don't know where he's getting this optimism from but I do hope he can say 'I told you so' for once! It's lovely but it also drives me mad sometimes, I'm a worse case scenario type, it's just self protection I think 😳 Xx

  • Bless you, I think your right about self protection... but if it's how we cope then there is nothing wrong with been glass half empty, hopefully as this round goes on you might feel a bit more positive 😊.
