Cycle 2 begins today

Hi Ladies, so with more than a few misgivings, I've started sniffing today. I think I'm most concerned about the side effects and that over the next few weeks I'm going to turn into a spotty, grouchy, emotional, bloated pretty unlikeable person who also gets monumental headaches. I'm going to try to be really good with my sugar intake this time and will keep acupuncture going too. I'm hoping this will improve things a bit. Poor hubby. He's in for a bit of a ride. At least I'm going away for a week on Sunday to my mum's. That will give him a break. Anyone else about to start their journey and wants to be a cycle buddy? Thanks, Vic x

Thank you. I'll keep a lookout for when you start. I should have had my first scan about then so will be two weeks roughly ahead. Good luck with cycle 3. I hope it goes well for you. x

Hi MrsC. Just wanted to wish you well with all of this, and try and drink some extra water, it may help with the headaches. Hope you enjoy your time with your mother, and make sure you hide all the long knives at home,when having those "moments". Joking apart - good luck! Diane

Thank you Diane. Yes I'll try to drink more water this time. I wasn't told about this on my previous cycle so I'm hoping that will help. Thank you. I'm looking forward to some time with Mum in the sun and I'm hoping I won't be too much of a nightmare for hubby. Have a good bank holiday. Vic x

Wishing you all the best. I empathise with the headaches - I'm on my 1st cycle & had a horrendous headache/migraine on my down regging - I was drinking 2 litres of water a day & more but nothing would shift it apart from codeine (I checked with my clinic first & it was fine to take) it eventually went after 4 days. Fingers crossed you are ok on this cycle xxx

Thank you so much. Yeah I couldn't get out of bed for three days as I thought I was going to fall over or vomit. Really hoping they're not as bad this time. Good luck with your cycle. I hope it is successful for you. xxx

I start my stims today. Round number three of ICSI. Worst thing is I know so much more about ivf now and what to expect. I'm also doing Acupuncture which haven't done in previous cycles. Good luck xxxx
