Just a rant 😡😡😡

Bit of a rant I'm afraid ladies! So my husband went away with his friends for the night camping and canoeing. Now he booked this before our mmc, and when we lost the baby he said he'd cancel. I told him to go, he really needed this, anyway this all resulted in me having to do my injections last night and this morning (he normally does this). Last night was fine as he phoned me dead on when I was meant to do it, but beforehand I had a total meltdown freaking out I was going to get it wrong! Fortunately I was at a friends house who helped! Unfortunately those particular friends then got really drunk and started telling me that IVF is a slow burner, and if this (3rd) round doesn't work then the next will!!! I couldn't believe it, kept on telling me I will get my baby, and at least we know we can get pregnant! Very easy coming from someone who hadn't even decided to have their baby, who is now 9 months old! Anyway I quickly made my excuses and left. Then I didn't sleep at all last night worrying about the cetrotide. This time OH did not phone for moral support, and although I managed it I'm really cross that it was left up to me, and I was put in this situation at all. I know I'm being hormonal and irrational, but I just needed my friend to not be a dick, and my husband to pick up the sodding phone!!!! 😢😩😡😡😡😡 sorry rant over! Xxxxx

A big well done though as even though you didn't have the support you wanted from hubby and friend you still managed it 💪🏼💪🏼

I think you should have a massive *GO ME* and celebrate how you just rocked doing the injection by yourself, when you're tired and peed off and emotional. It's such an unexplainably hard thing to inject yourself time and again voluntarily so be super proud you did it and you didn't need anyone else to help this morning! 🙌🏻 I'm sure your friend was trying to be supportive. People just don't realise they're being insensitive. xx

Oh dear. Your friends unfortunately in their way of trying to be supportive have been rude probably through a lack of understanding. The poor hubbies do end up getting it in the neck don't they? We're so reliant on them for everything aren't we? Well done for getting through it all by yourself. Give yourself a big cheer and know that you can do it! xxx

Thank you! You'd think by now I'd be an expert at shooting up, but I'm so bloody clumsy, it terrifies me!! Yes you're right, it was all coming from a good place, feeling much better after all the lovely replies from you lovely ladies. I'm so sorry it's been such a sad outcome for you today, and to reply to my silly rant is very kind of you xxxx

All totally understandable and very frustrating!!! Friends can mean well but be completely thoughtless and OHs don't realise how much they are needed sometimes. I do hope you can calm down and see how strong you are in your own right. Well done x
