One day at a time...

This just proves that no matter what life throws at you your body will battle on and do what it wants.

It’s one day at a time for us.

Mr Emu doesn’t want it to mean anything until the scan. Which is understandable; I agree with him. We’ve not jumped around for joy. Or shed a tear of joy. We’ll see where we end up next. We’ll carry on as normal. He’ll take his mum for a day of chemotherapy today and I’ll hobble in to work.

One hurdle passed. Thank you so much for your support my ladies. You are all amazing. x

Thanks so much love. All went well and one little nugget is currently on board and hopefully holding on for dear life!! How are you? I know you’d mentioned your crazy prolactin levels - are they under better control now? Hope you’re nearer getting things stabilised. Thanks v much for your note, meant a lot as it’s been a stressful day! x x

Im hopefully almost at the end of sorting all of my bloods out thanks. Got prolactin back yesterday and finally a normal result! Yeyyy. My thyroid is still a wee bit high so last thing to sort now!xx

Reply

You often find one thing can trigger another with hormones. I got hyperactive thyroid suspiciously straight after back to back ivf & I blame the disruption in hormones. They’re so interlinked aren’t they.

Pleased to hear your prolactin has normalised, let’s hope your thyroid follows suit asap. You’ll get there eventually! It’s never an easy road is it! Take care x x

I am so pleased for you but completely understand about not getting excited until the scan. That was exactly how I felt. It all just feels like small steps along a very long road that you just keep plodding down.

I had my scan last week and alls good. Feel like I can think of myself as pregnant. Although am already starting to worry and think of the next scan. We are paying to have one at about 9/10wks, to put my mind at ease.

I am keeping everything crossed for you. And hope the next wait goes ok!!!!! Constant waiting!!!

I just went “yesss” our loud and my husband was like “what, what”. So chuffed. I read your post a couple of weeks ago and cried (I blame pregnancy but probably would have cried even if I wasn’t). Definitely a day by day thing. I was a neurotic mess after my BFP and really struggled. I kept thinking I should be happy but was just constantly worried and definitely the only way to deal was reading posts and talking to people on here and just taking it day by day. All the best. Xx

Ahhhh Emu this is fab news 😊 I know the feeling of taking each day as it comes, our first bfp I was crying and everything - second bfp was a lot more subdued. I really found having a little milestones list is helpful (I think the bfp is about 5 on the list) - it just helps build confidence that everything is going as it should be. Hopefully your next milestone (the scan) flies by and you can enjoy every moment from then on. Much love xx

Subdued. Very good word to describe this morning xx

I just went to visit a relative (my age) whose suffering from rare terminal lung cancer and had to abort her baby twins because of her treatment last year 😔
