Hi everyone, I'm just about to start my second fresh round of IVF this year. My first was in May/ June.
The first round was a disaster! I didn't react very well to the drugs and every scan was a disappointment. I only ended up with 1 embryo and had an unsuccessful day 2 transfer. After 2 years of bad news, I'm well and truly fed up!
I have my baseline scan in a few days and I'm due to start stimming later this week, but I'm not feeling very positive/ hopeful! I don't believe it will work, I feel like I'm just going through the motions, because what other option do I have?!
Another sticky situation is my sister is pregnant and due in Nov! I'm not dealing with it well- more just avoiding it! Me and my sister have the same birthday in Sept (I was born on her 3rd birthday!) Its my 30th this year but I don't feel like I have anything to celebrate and I don't think I can enjoy any family celebrations while she is heavily pregnant. But I feel bad avoiding her/ making things about my sadness rather than her happiness.
We are also self funding so that's adding another layer of awful to the stressful situation.
Anyone else in the same boat? Any tips to feel happier about the situation? Anyone else on their second fresh round? x
