5th cycle - take 3 🤞🏻

E_05
E_05

This afternoon I spoke to my clinic and there happy for me to start treatment from my next period which is hopefully next week 😬

I’m going to try again for a natural FET but will be taking steroids and the intralipid Infusion. My consultant isn’t really for or against the infusion but understands why I want to do it, I feel I need to do something different.

I’m actually feeling a bit numb about starting treatment, I’m not sure I can handle any more heartache but I also need to do this to know I’ve done everything possible before I give up on IVF.

Hope everyone is doing well whenever they are in their journeys 🧡

I hope so to! Xx

Very best of luck to you! I know what you mean about the numbness and wanting/needing to try something different, I’m the same. Never ceases to amaze me how much of IVF rests in our hands as patients, I’m (hopefully) using Lubion this time because I’ve put my foot down about IM prog and done my own research, but it’s never even been tabled before! Think consultants get stuck in their ways sometimes.. will be wishing you lots of luck along the way xx

Thank you, I think your right about doing your own research I kind of see now that having the extra time has been a positive thing as I’ve been able to look into the intralipid infusion and it’s made me more determined to try it xx

Fingers crossed for you. Can’t imagine how you feel starting your 5th cycle. I’m on my 3rd and gets harder every time! X

Thank you, somehow the desire (or maybe desperation) to have a baby out-ways the treatment. Take each day as it’s come and don’t be afraid to take a break if you need it, I was always adamant I wouldn’t but after being forced into it I’ve realised it’s been much needed x

great stuff..I am right there with you..scratch next week then natural fet xx

12 days to go before I start down reg, I actually thought by some miracle I was going to be one of those lucky ladies to dodge the IVF just before it starts, I have never had a late AF in my life, 2 days late this month, let myself believe their may be a slim hope and then the witch arrived tonight in all her glory, gutted I let myself believe I could have been that lucky, probably caused by being more anxious than I thought about starting my first cycle! But i know you ladies are all here and I need to just take a deep breath and chill. I really hope this is your lucky round hunny you really deserve some luck and sending you lots of baby dust x x

I think we’ve all had those times of thinking could this of be our miracles so don’t beat yourself up. I still do it now and we’ve been ttc 5 years as much as I know it’s impossible our brains are powerful things! Wishing you lots of luck for when you start, your right we’re all here anytime. Thank you so much xx

I completely understand what you mean by feeling numb (although I'm still going through my 1st FET!!) I do hope that you get a different result this time with a bfp!! Keeping my fingers crossed for you x

Good luck xx

Good luck sweetie x

Best of luck x

Very best of luck, really hope you get your positive!! 🤞🏻 xx

God I hear ya! I felt a bit numb too when I started out, almost resigned myself to fail again. However I have a little hope that has reignited now that I've gotten going! Glad you got your consultant to allow you to try the intralipids, as you said it allows you to have tried it all!! Keep us posted with your journey! Wishing you all the luck in the world!xx

Thank you, I think I need to do this to ever allow myself to get to the closure of IVF - I know I sound defeatist before I’ve already started but I guess we learn to protect ourselves. How’s things going for you? Xx

I know what you mean somehow there isn’t the same excited anticipation that there use to be. Lots of luck for ET and for the tww, no matter how many times you’ve done it that’s one thing that doesn’t get easier xx

Very best luck and wishing you strength throughout your treatment xxx

I’ve got my finger and toes crossed for you 🤞🏼 Wishing you lots of luck 🍀 xx

Lots of luck lovely hoping that this is your time and you can give up with a BFP at the end 💖 Xx

Is this one through the same clinic? Are they doing anything different this time for you? Just keep thinking positive, one thing I’ve learnt no matter wat results high or low numbers, a little bit of luck & hope is what we need. Xx

Yeah it’s the same clinic, I’ve done some research as I’ve had the extra time and they’ve agreed I can have the intralipid infusion this cycle so I’m really hoping it’ll make a difference. Thank you, you too! Xx

Wishing you so much luck hun. You truly deserve this. Your strength and kindness has been a true inspiration for me. You are going to make one amazing mummy and I'm really hoping this is your time xxx
