Round 5 - ready as il ever be! 👩‍🎤

Hey, hope everyone’s doing okay as can be.

Ive taken a little time out and after speaking to my counsellor which definitely was beneficial have been focusing on myself (something I’m really not use to doing) and getting myself in a better head space. Some moments I think I’m doing well and others I’m right back at the beginning but for now I’m okay about that!

AF has finally arrived and today I start taking the steroids in preparation for my natural FET, will also ring the clinic to book my scan in. For now all I can do is keep everything crossed I actually ovulate! 🤞

Unfortunately my poor Tilly’s X-ray showed more damage to her knee than we initially thought so it’s likely she’ll be having surgery soon. I spoke to the vet about my concerns and when the time comes I know il be an anxious mess but I’m trying not to think about that to much yet.

Congratulations to everyone who’s got their BFP’s as I think I’ve missed a few.

To everyone who’s had BFN’s or is still on this journey waiting to start treatment or taking a break - hang in there you’re stronger than you think xx

I've been thinking about you...

So glad you're ready to start the next steps in your journey. It's natural that you'll feel anxious about it but I will be keeping everything crossed for you.

I'm sorry to hear about Tilly. I hope her operation goes well when the time comes - I'm sure she'll be in good hands.

Take one day at time with both situations - I find that helps with sanity!

Xx

Thank you, your right about the one day at a time - sometimes I just take the morning and then the afternoon. I kind of thought if I don’t start my cycle now will I ever and now AFs arrived I’ve got that ready feeling. How are you doing? Xx

It's good that you feel ready for it. It's scary having to start over again, especially when you've already endured such heartache, but you're stronger than you think. Wishing you all the luck in the world. Xx

Thank you, I know you’ve given me faith that natural can work so hopefully the luck continues! How are you, have you had your scan? Xx

is this your first natural? it was our 2nd but our transfer on our first fet was the issue and why we got a bfn. I truly believe natural is better..much better on your body. I am ok..12 week scan a week today and can't wait xxx

Yeah my other 2 FETs were both medicated and unsuccessful so I don’t have much faith in FETs tbh but I’m telling myself this time is different so worth a try. Ah how exciting, can’t believe where the times gone! Xx

Focused is definitely good! Im ok ta, my thyroid levels and prolactin levels are both reducing but not enough to warrant planning my next transfer yet. Had a melt down thinking Im never gonna get there and totally blew things out of proportion but Im doing ok now. Joined the gym to give me something to focus on until my bloods are sorted. Next blood test in 2 weeks so Im getting there!xx

Reply

Ah sorry to hear that, can understand your frustrations but hopefully your next blood test will show they’ve reduced even more! 🤞I went back to the gym last week to, can’t believe how much it helps my frame of mind xx

Thank you, I’m definitely following the take each day even sometimes morning then afternoon as it comes. My biggest problem is trying to pre plan everything which completely messes with my anxiety.

How are you doing, have you had another scan? Xx

Bless ya small steps hun is the way forward, try not to concentrate on what's hard but try see it as something you will take head on and once you've dealt with the problem it's another thing acheived onwards and upwards, you'll get there anxiety is not nice Its what's stopped me from doing a lot of things in life but once you over come those fears no matter how big or small it's a huge milestone, your doing everything you can hun don't put to much pressure on yourself. 💖

Got another scan on Friday starting to feel better also so that's coming with it's own worries.

💟😘

Your so right, I’m definitely trying to minimise any extra stress at the mo.

Hope all goes well Friday, I think it’s only natural to worry when things feelings change but remember symptoms aren’t everything xx
