Will it be 3rd time lucky?! πŸ€ πŸ€žπŸ™ 🌈

So here we are again, AF came on fully this morning and I've contacted the clinic who've booked me in for my injection on day 21 of my cycle which will be Thursday 10th August.

Transfer should be around week beginning 11th September (I think).

I'm praying this will be our time. I can't let myself get excited because I'm too scared of what the outcome could be. BFN and I'll be devastated. BFP and I'll be worried about another miscarriage or chemical πŸ˜₯

I'm trying to remain hopeful but as many of you will know it's so hard!

I'm giving reflexology a go this time, anyone tried it? I did a few sessions of acupuncture with my second treatment, I found it ok but pretty expensive.

Just wanted to say all the best!!

I did reflexology and fertility massage with my first cycle and believed it helped. If nothing else it help me relax and gave me some 'me time'.

I can't start a FET for a few more months as I'm recovering from surgery but I've already booked in my reflexology and fertility massage to start from September to get me ready. I'll also be doing my castor oil packs once I'm allowed after my surgical wounds have healed.

Good luck and I'll follow your journey if that's okay xx

Thanks for your reply. I haven't tried fertility massage, I might look into that!

I'm quite looking forward to trying reflexology, I can imagine it would be very relaxing πŸ™‚

What is the castor oil packs?

Hope your recovering well after your op.

Of course you can follow my journey πŸ™‚ Xxx

It's a slow recovery and is frustrating coz I know it's delaying my FET and I worry coz time is not on my side (I'm 38 now) πŸ˜”

I know the surgery was needed and I know I need to be properly recovered. It's just hard. πŸ˜”

If you google castor oil packs for fertility there's lots of information out there, my reflexologist gave me the info I needed. Basically it's any cloth soaked in castor oil laid over the pelvic area with heat over to encourage the blood flow. There are times in the fertility cycle where it shouldn't be used tho so read up first.

I'll be doing them to help with my surgical wounds to reduce scarring and to get the blood flowing nicely for my next try!

Good luck x

Fingers crossed for you. I'm on my third cycle too and was hoping for third time lucky but currently half way through the 2ww and already convinced it's over πŸ˜ͺ You try to stay positive but equally you never want to get your hopes up so think negative to protect yourself.

I also had a miscarriage on a natural pregnancy after my second failed round so, like you I am petrified of having to go through that again as well. The things we put our bodies through, we just can't win!

Good luck with it all x

So sorry to hear about your loss ☹️ I know, we put ourselves through so much! I think the whole process of IVF just means we'll probably never enjoy anything, even with a BFP I think it's almost impossible to enjoy it. It's very tough!

Wishing you lots of luck! When is your test date?

Thank you. It's on Thursday 27th so I've still got six days to torture myself! I'm not hopeful though as I've had a terrible migraine the last couple of days and I normally get them a few days before my period. If it's going to come it'll be due around Sunday so the timing of the migraine would suggest it is going to show its head sadly πŸ˜ͺ Same thing happened the last two cycles. Humph πŸ˜’

Wishing you all the very best of luck for this cycle. I've been doing reflexology for months now. Really not sure whether it's helping fertility wise but i feel so relaxed I fall asleep most sessions so figure that must be good in itself! Hope it helps you xx

Hello! Wish you all the best. I hope this third time will be your lucky time.

Reflexology i really good for stress. Acupuncture is also a good option for release all the stress caused for the infertility.

I have my fingers crossed for u xx
