Feeling deflated and upset

Hi ladies,

I feel so deflated and upset. I just got a call from our clinic to say that they’re cancelling our injection teaching session on Friday and my endo scratch on Tuesday, as my fertility doctor has to take an emergency case in India.

I will now have to ring next month when I have my period so that can book me in for them both again.

I feel so foolish because I was just starting to think that things will finally start happening (I was meant to start IVF in September last year but had a miscarriage which delayed it all) and now this. Feel like this is just another blooming thing getting in the way of starting IVF.

Probably doesn’t help that I have an awful cold and there’s problems at work, but I feel like I could just go home and get in bed and have a good cry :-(

Hi lau_har1 Oh I am so sorry to hear this, and completely understand your disappointment at not having the scratch done and the teaching session. You must have geared yourself up for all of this to happen now, then to have it delayed. Sadly, things like this can happen, and I'm sure your specialist wouldn't have let you down if his trip to India wasn't an emergency. Just think of it as having that little bit of extra time to prepare yourself for your treatment cycle. Hope all goes well when it does start, and I shall be thinking of you. Diane

Thank you Diane. I will just try to stay positive and think this extra time will be good for my acupuncture and trying to eat well and prepare myself. X

Totally understand your disappointed, I would feel the same. It’s a tough journey cause we do mentally begin to prepare. If you still feel like a good cry when you get home then do, it helps to let it out. Hope the next month goes quick for you xx

Thank you Hun.. I think my partner and myself are going to book a little holiday away before starting IVF. Will be good to go away and get a clear head before it all starts xx

Sounds like a good idea! We did that before we started and went to an all inclusive adults only hotels best decision we could of ever made! Xx

Ah this is so disappointing! Its hard to gear yourself up for nothing to happen! Be kind to yourself. Sometimes a good cry is just what we need so uf u feel like that, go for it!!! A holiday sounds fab too! Just avoid any countries with Zika risk. We had to sign a form before IVF to confirm we hadnt visited any countries at risk of Zika in 6 months i think it was. 😘 xx

I'm so sorry to hear this. I imagine you'r feeling very let down, frustrated and all kinds of emotions right now. I am sure this is just a small barrier you've come across on your journey; you will get through it, and when it all works out the happiness you will feel will wash away all these feelings. Keep hope. You'll get there. Praying for you and your miracle xx

I would feel exactly the same, this is so disappointing. You had yourself mentally prepared for things to begin and now there’s been another delay beyond your control. A wee holiday sounds like an excellent idea, go for it if you can xx
