Think I just need reassurance

Hello everyone,

Well my first beta test is on Monday after our 3rd transfer and I've completely overdone it today. I work at a school and have had to cover lessons plus have not stopped rushing around to top it all off one of the children accidentally rammed their school bag right into my lower stomach. Feel like I'm putting everything in jeopardy at the moment. Am so dreading this beta test, I don't know if I'm mentally prepared for another bad result. thank you for readingX

I'm sure you're not putting it in jeopardy, you have to live your life and I hope you're ok. If you're worried about the impact on your health/mental health can you take a couple of days off sick or have the GP sign you off sick? Hope you feel better soon and best of luck for your beta test x

Thank you for your message and kind words, workplace has been fantastic throughout and depending on result I'm sure they'll be fine with me having some time off. Have kept reasonably positive up until now just don't want Monday to come xxx

I’m sure you have nothing to worry about. The embryo at this stage is so tiny it can’t even be seen with a naked eye. Keeping everything crossed for you xx

Argh gosh, it’s enough to drive you crazy isn’t it. I’m sure there’s absolutely nothing you’ve done to jeopardise anything. Our clinic always say to carry on as normal. We do so much to change our lives during this process anyway don’t we, a little normality (well as normal as you can be whilst inadvertently stressing about everything possible thing!) during the tww is about the minimum to ask for! Good luck for Monday x x

Thank you for your reply and reassurance, it means an awful lot! Have put everything into this, as we all do, just getting so jittery the nearer it gets to test date xxx

I can totally identify with the feelings of worrying about overdoing things. I test on Monday as well, it’s our first round and first FET, I’ve been constantly worried about everything I’ve done! But like others have said I don’t think we have anything to worry about, but it’s totally natural to & understandable. My Dr told me to carry on as normal to a certain extent, especially as it’s a FET, so it’s like a natural conception and lots of people would have no idea so carry on as normal. Good luck for Monday! x

I'm sure you have absolutely nothing to worry about. I was working with very young children at the time of my transfer and went back into work the following day. It was very hands on and the children were all over the place, but I got my bfp! I found being around children so therapeutic and it paid off because I have my little one now 😆 Be reassured!
