Hi I just needed a bit of support, first IVF cycle. been on the down reg injection 2 wks now and have felt very emotional/tearful nearly every day. About to start stims. Found out My fiancé is being transferred to work in Qatar for a years contract in six weeks time and I feel so vulnerable, lost and insecure. He will be earning 2.5 times his usual UK salary tax free & wants to secure a future for us. These opportunities done come along every day. He will be back every 4-5 weeks and visit. I can visit him for as long as I like as often as I like (unless I’m pregnant as I would be high risk pregnancy). My god the timing! And all the while I wake up with anxiety at the moment and think I need to be relaxed for the IVF to work.
Ladies, You will all appreciate how difficult IVF is even with your partner there physically with you. I have great supportive friends and parents but we all need our man when it comes to this. So if I’m pregnant he will leave soon after which fills me with loneliness and if it hasn’t worked I will then need to do the process completely alone. If I have good quality eggs then just the transfer / otherwise the whole IVF procedure again(!!) I’m 40 next year so I don’t feel I have the luxury to say I will wait until he’s back.
I feel really scared and vulnerable and alone. Any advice or thoughts are welcome, thank you! 🙏
