Just fed up!

This is my first post here but feeling a bit down today. Had frozen embryo put back on Saturday but can feel my period is on its way....crampy, etc. It just feels like it's such a waste...of money, time, effort, energy. The hoping and waiting, early appointments and fitting in acupuncture, taking micronutrients and daily injections, and the not exercising so missing out onseeing friends and getting more out of shape than ever. Lots of friends are pregnant and whilst that is great, they really have no idea how lucky they are that it is straight forward.....when someone complains that it 'took 3 months to get lucky!' or boast about super-sperm I just want to scream! Ughhhhh....just feeling a bit fed up. It's the getting your hopes up and then feeling an idiot for doing so! Sorry for such a big whinge!

Don't have to apologise for the moan, this is the place to do it. Sorry your feeling so fed up, it's hard being around people who 'didn't even try' to get pregnant. Do any of your friends know what your going through? Try not to not focus to much on your symptoms at the mo, I had a lot of cramping and was sure AF was arriving but got a BFP Tuesday so keep positive if you can. Wishing you lots of luck xx

Ah you've come to the right place to have a little moan, the ups and downs of fertility treatment get too much for all of us sometimes.

Don't give up hope just yet though, slight cramps can be a good sign too so just try and take each day as it comes and hang in there until you can do the test.

Keeping everything crossed for you xx

Your better to let it all out than bottle it up. As for the cramps don't worry about that I had period cramps with some brown spotting. I am now 5 weeks pregnant and still having the odd cramp.

Good luck 😘😘😘

Don't apologise, it's hard when you hear others pregnancy news, there is no denying it. We are all here to support each other, and we all have days like this for different reasons! Keeping everything crossed for you xxx

Thank you for all the comments. It is just an isolating experience. I don't want to confide in lots of people as it is hard enough without managing other people's emotions too, but then it means not having the support of lots of friends. None of my closer friends have needed fertility help (thankfully) but at times I feel a bit frustrated. Yourcomments are really supportive and I am very grateful. Will wait for the results. Xx
