Almost time

It's a strange feeling .. I know I should be looking forward to egg collection on Friday but I am not .. I just the feel like "get it over and done with "so I can get on with my life ... after our loss in may this year it all feels strange like I know it's not going to work and I want nothing more then a rainbow baby , I guess my hearts not in it this time horrible to say !!!!

What's the point in spending £7k if it's not going to work ... I am sure I shouldn't be thinking stuff like that help !! Do I need a slap round the face or a wake up call

You don’t need either, it’s just self preservation. I’m beginning to feel the same after our loss in April and September. Good luck for good numbers at EC xx

I think your feelings are totally normal. We had a loss earlier in the year and went straight into a FET. I don't think I was in a good place and felt very negative about it all.

So you are not alone and I am sure there are a lot of ladies on here who have and do feel the same.

I think it is also a self protection mechanism.

Try not to stress that you are feeling like this. Maybe just acknowledge these feelings and don't beat yourself up.

A bit of IVF mindfulness might help.

Good luck for EC.

Good luck for Friday. You could perhaps try some mindfulness to get into a more positive head space but I know what hard after a loss. You just want to protect yourself. If you did want to try the trick the mindful ivf app is good xx

Hi ROsemary76. You and probably of ladies here feel/felt the same way as you are feeling now, especially after suffering a miscarriage, or maybe more. Of course your scared, that is only normal. I just wanted to wish you huge success with egg collection on Friday, and make sure you drink plenty and have a good rest afterwards. Thinking of you. Diane
