My gut feeling was right

Hidden

So I popped up to the hospital this morning - left on time, got there ridiculously early so went for a walk in the sunshine followed by a cuppa and a read of a paper. Toddled along to the unit and got taken 5 mins early, which never, ever happens to be told that my gut feeling was right. I haven't responded to the down regulation injection for my medicated fet. My lining is a lovely 9.4mm (they wanted it under 4mm) and my right ovary did indeed produce an egg the other night as I thought! So it appears my body is doing what it normally does and isn't listening to the drugs for now....

To go back next week at the same time and hopefully by then I will have had a bleed. Feeling really down as I was already delayed two weeks due to a cyst on my ovary and now that's me delayed another week - I actually feel the most un-pregnant I ever have in my life just now.

I really am finding this frozen cycle a lot tougher than my fresh cycle, I don't know if it's loss of naivety, hope or just plain bad luck so far but emotionally I'm very tired - it's not meant to be this hard :(

Back at work and already planning buying that lovely bottle of wine on the way home.

How bloody frustrating for you 😕

Why are you doing a medicated fet? Is it an option to do a natural fet? I’ve done both. The natural fet worked with my own body. Sorry if I’m being naive in asking xx

My clinic only do a mediated cycle as they reckon it's more successful. I did ask at the beginning as my cycles are pretty regular so I thought I could get away with a natural but they just don't do it. It's frustrating as the hospital is an hour away from where we live and if we wanted to change to another we would be looking at a two hour drive so I feel I don't have much choice in the matter. Never mind, I'm sure what will be, will be but I just feel a but downhearted at the moment.

Anyway, how are you feeling today? You all set for tomorrow?

I’m alright. Don’t worry about me 😊

I think that’s wrong of your clinic. There should be a choice. Surely a cycle where you’re not pumped full of drugs is better all round? My two bfps were a mixture of both results, medicated and natural xx

I agree and I think I'm going to question this again next Friday as I have a feeling I won't have a bleed before the scan. It's funny how we can pick up all the signs and feelings before the hospital can isn't it? I've never had a good feeling about this cycle and I just couldn't put my finger on it but I'm glad my gut feelings have been more or less right so far.

Looking forward to your update tomorrow, it's so exciting for you and brill for you to have some positive news again. xxx

Aw no Laura so sorry to hear this.

It’s so frustrating when it gets delayed. Fingers crossed you have responded by next week xx

Thanks Stacey although I'm not convinced. The hospital reckon I'll have a bleed before Friday but right now I really don't think I will. I'm just struggling to understand why my body seems to be ignoring the injection. I think if I'm no further forward by Thursday I'll be phoning the hospital and trying to find out some more.

How are you doing?

It’s so hard when u have no control and ur body isn’t doing what u want it to. I think that’s a good idea.

Am doing ok, really struggling with the emotions and how tired am feeling but I expected that anyway xx

It's a hard time isn't it? I think we forget that sometimes. I apologised to my hubby this morning for being so tired and grumpy and he was so sweet and told me not to worry as it's a stressful time for us both and I realised he was right (for once, but don't tell him that lol). I think we need to remember to go easy on ourselves when we are going through all of this xxx
