In the blue corner is Magda22 getting ready to give it all another shot...
I haven't actually been feeling like that much of a fighter! I've been dreading getting started with IVF again. I've been dreading the emotional ups and downs, going from hope to anguish in a day depending what the scans and blood tests show, all the weird injections, waiting for the phone calls after EC, and most of all how horrible it feels when there is bad news. BUT today I felt a glimmer of optimism and positivity - I do really want to do this again to have the chance at one, or more, good embryos. (I'm aiming to freeze and bank any embryos that are created to use in a year or so because my partner is not ready to start a family yet.)
AF could arrive any time in the next week...and then I'm off! I'm dodging requests for work and avoiding committing my time to anything much over the next few days. I can't believe how close it is.
This will be my first time trying full stimulation short protocol, previously I did natural modified rounds, I'm glad I'm trying this once to see what effect it has for me. With my very low AMH I'm unlikely to produce more than a few follicles, but I think it's worth a shot.
Thanks to everyone who is sharing their story here, it's been a source of great strength, hope and solidarity for me over the past months xx
