Hi. Only joined last week and never "blogged" before so bare with me. Been reading some other blogs and I too am disgusted they way us "infertiles" are treated. Anyway, I just wanted to share my irrational thoughts and behaviour during this, my second, 2 week wait. Hubby and I had our first ICSI attempt a few months ago - BFN. This time around I am doing things differently and I am interested to hear if other women are being as irrational as me!! So, I have taken 2 weeks off work and I intend on staying in bed a lot, coming downstairs for meals and a cuppa! I am still using unscented shower gel and deodorant and not wearing perfume. I left caffeine behind a few months ago. I am scared to cough, sneeze, laugh and use the loo, and I won't stand for too long - I don't even want to turn over in bed! I got some new nail polish last week - but even decided against THAT as well! DH has also given our 2 embies a stern talking to! I know all this is unnecessary but my DH understands why I need to do it. I am so desperate for it to work I will try anything. This time around, I also have some abdominal pain - but my egg collection was done by the hospital butcher so maybe it's just that I'm still recovering. I don't test until the 29th June so I'm trying to stay positive and calm. If anyone else is going through this or just starting out, feel free to share thoughts and tips - or just vent some anger and frustration. Thanks for listening
PS Thanks for all the positive comments. Babydust to us all.
