So sorry everyone for such a late and long post. I am just looking on some advice on how to get through the festive season with regards to diet?
I had a failed ICSI round back in July. I cannot believe how quickly the time has passed since, however the heartache still feels like yesterday. I had low AMH levels and only 2 eggs collected to which neither fertilised. My consultant mentioned a low ovarian reserve and told me that AMH levels do not change, but I have been determined to do certain things to at least help.
I have been taking DHEA, ubiquinol COQ10, vit d, vit e, omega 3, vitamin b, zinc magnesium citrate and obvs. folic acid since the end of Aug, after having a little break. I am scheduled to start treatment again mid Jan 2020 for a second (and final funded) ICSI cycle. I am so scared that all my hard work will be undone just trying to enjoy christmas and the next few weeks. I have been so conscious of my diet and eating veggies, mainly in homemade soup, organic and free from products but now I am worried about the upcoming festivities.
I have also switched to natural products. Shampoo, conditioner, make up remover, wash powder, hand soap and washing up liquid. The only thing that I just can't change on my skin is my deodrant and make up products. I just feel like I am trying SO hard but the constant stress and worry is just going to ruin all my chances.
Also being on all of these supplements, I have had no signs or symptoms and any changes so is this a good thing or not? I just can't tell if I am doing all the right things. It is so hard and I am being so hard on myself, especially after another pregnancy announcement by someone I know today. 😔😔😔😔
Any advice would be greatly received. Really trying not to stress and worry but I just can't help it.
Plus no sooner does Christmas end than my birthday looms in Feb where I turn 35, which scares me even more coz of my increasing age. 😔😔😔😔 It is a never ending, vicious worry.
