Totally unrelated to IVF 🐶

Totally unrelated to IVF 🐶

For Christmas my dogs got a photo shoot and we could be included, 2 weeks ago when we went I felt so nervous this isn’t how our first photo shoot was meant to be, it was meant to be me holding my baby.

I received the photos last night and this is one of my faves 😍 It also made me realise how grateful I am to these dogs, without them I’m honestly not sure where I’d be. Even though my first ‘proper’ photos aren’t how id always planned, I have to be so grateful for the people in my life I do have.

Time to pull up positive pants and get ready for my hysteroscopy and cycle 5 in March 🤞

Ps. Apologise this is nothing IVF related, I just had to share xx

Ah thanks for sharing your gorgeous photos, they really are our best friends aren’t they! I had egg collection yesterday and cuddling up with my golden retriever after definitely helped.

Good luck for the next steps and hopefully with your little friends there, tails wagging, they’ll keep you feeling positive x

How are you doing? xx

I’m okay thanks, decided I owe it to my babies to keep positive for this next cycle and put my all into it. Waiting to find out if I ovulate naturally to see if I can go for a natural FET 🤞 how are you? Xx

Do you know when you are likely to start your next cycle or is that dependent on your ovulation test results? When do you find out? You absolutely need to go into it with lots of positivity - as hard as it may be at times. Wishing you lots of luck. xx

I'm not bad thanks. I had a good break and managed to stop thinking about fertility stuff for a while, however, I did have a wobble on Sunday! But, we got our appointment through for the new clinic yesterday - we go on 13th February! I am nervous but excited that things are starting to move forward again. xx

Reply

I’m having a hysteroscopy end of Feb so can start after that, it’ll either be natural or medicated depending on results of ovulation, got another scan Friday to see what’s going on.

I’m glad you did, I think we all need that. Wobbles are okay, lots of luck for your appt hope it answers some questions for you xx

I have to ring this afternoon to find out blood test results and whether i need to change. TBH i'm not holding my breath that it will work but trying to stay hopeful. Wish side effects weren't so bad. I've lost several kg in weight simply through sickness and lost appetite xxx

Reply

That’s not good, hopefully they’ll agree to change your medication 🤞let us know how you get on xx

I'm good thanks. Just having lots of bloods today & hysteroscopy tomorrow. Fingers crossed they get to the bottom of why I can't get pregnant!

Absolutely owe it to yourself, positive pants firmly in place I would say!!xx

Good luck for tomorrow, are you awake for your hysteroscopy? I’ve heard mixed opinions on how painful it is so please let me know if you don’t mind Xx

I'm not going to be awake. As being mine done on Athens and that's what they do here so unfortunately can't help. I do know that locally at home they don't use anaesthetic and most women tolerate it pretty well.xx

They are gorgeous.. a little like my two (well same colour!) we had a scare last night. Our black dog missy bit the red dog (dudleys) colar and got it twisted in a figure of 8 in her mouth. She was crying with pain and was strangling him. He was yelping and gasping. Luckily after a minute of frantically trying to undo it and cut it my husband managed to pull the colar off her mouth. His eye is bright red and blood shot this morning. Scariest minute of my life. Made me realise how blessed I am to have them and how grateful I am. I’m sure you feel like this about yours. They are our angels from above sent to help us on this journey xxx

Reply

Oh bless them, that must of been awful for you all but I’m so glad there both okay. I definitely do, I always said I’d never have a dog until after my children but wouldn’t get through this journey without them xx

No nor would I! Bless the little four legged beauties xxx

I love this photograph, such beautiful and well behaved doggies, I think I’m in love 😍 I totally relate to how you feel towards them. I’m the same with my wee dog. Same breed as yours too. We got her two and a half years ago after yet another failed cycle and she has brought so much love and focus into our lives. I would be lost without her. Glad to hear the positive pants are going on, take care xxx

Aw thank you, your so right we got Tilly on the left after my first MMC she was as old as I would have been pregnant and I think she literally saved my life. Hope your doing okay xx
