Trying to stay relaxed

Hi everyone,

I'm 5 days into stims, 7 injections down, and other than one small bruise a few hot flushes feeling nothing. I'm trying to stay relaxed about the whole thing, this is my third fresh cycle so I know what to expect. I'm still doing all the old wives tales that I did previously and being extra thoughtful about what I'm eating to ensure lots of protein, heating pad on my stomach at night etc. Anyone else at this same stage?

I have first stimms acupuncture session tomorrow night before my first scan on Friday and then provisionally booked another one in for Tuesday in case EC goes ahead on Wednesday. I had reiki last week also- other than feeling a pulsating sensation in my stomach and colours coming into my mind I didn't feel anything from it. One of the colours was related to fertility though so hoping that's a good sign.

Hi MrsTM13. Well you're certainly giving yourself the best chance with your alternative therapies and nutrition etc. Just wanted to wish you well with all, and of course for success. Diane

Thanks. I figured if I throw absolutely everything at this cycle, 99% sure it'll be our last fresh attempt, that I won't be able to torture myself with what ifs. X


Thinking of you. Diane xx
