Not A Great Few Days...

Hi folks,

So these last few days I have been in a bit of a pity party mood, I had to go to the hospital for a HSG to have my tubes checked and whilst all is fine in that department (yay!) I've still been a bit low because it feels like we are still no closer to understanding what is causing my fertility problems ... even though I know we are a step closer by checking this off of the list of possibilities. Anyways, this has resulted in the hubby and I indulging a little (maybe a little more than a little :/ ) and the exercise has taken a hit too :(

That being said, I have picked myself back up again and am back to eating better and exercising today and I've also taken my measurements and have found that I've lost between 1-2 cm pretty much all over in the last month so I'm pleased with that.

I'm hoping that I've not sabotaged myself too badly for the weigh in tomorrow but I'm not feeling too positive about that at this point. Let's see what tomorrow brings!

How have your week's gone?

Hello Geekydee,

Well done for getting back on track after what sounds like a difficult and maybe quite emotional week.

I had some ups and downs last week too, and I am just happy to put it behind me. It sounds like you have reserves of positivity for when the going gets tough, and determination to keep moving forwards, and that's often what saves the day!

It's great that you have lost a few centimetres all over, I have only bothered to measure my waist which has only lost one inch in 6 weeks, but I am sure that I have much less 'internal' fat than I did before as I have lost 10lb now. It's good to know that my liver or heart may have less unwanted fat!!

Keep going and I am sure any weight gained will soon drop away and you will be back on track. Good luck!

Good for you for getting back up, dusting yourself down and getting back on that horse! ;)

I am sorry for your issues and I don't know what to advice there...I have heard of couples who tried for years and got no-where then they relaxed about the whole thing, accepting things will happen if they're meant to happen and voila they're expecting. So your stress levels might be something to look at. :)

Good luck for Monday, you'll be fine no matter what - worrying won't help anything! ;)

Hi Sazkia,

We struggled the first time around too and I ended up lucking out on my last round of treatment before we were sent for ivf. I definitely agree that relaxing helps things but annoyingly, my body doesn't work as I'm not having regular cycles or ovulating properly which is what they are looking into.

We decided a while ago now that if we couldn't conceive this time around that we would look into adoption so I'm not stressed in that regard, more annoyed at my body failing to do what it should. I actually feel more annoyed about it all on my hubby's behalf!

Anyways, yep ... I'm firmly dusted off and ready to go again :)

Be kind to yourself; your body is an amazing entity that keeps you alive through all the odds. It is not letting you down. You have one little miracle and your body did that, YOUR BODY! I like the idea of adoption, loads of children are in need of loving and stable homes. :) Good for you! Xx

Hi Anna61,

Thanks very much. I'm quite happy with myself because normally I'd let these bad few days continue on and spiral out of control. At least now I know that I can have a blip and get back to it :)

Good luck to you too!

Have you been tested for PCOS?

I had nearly 6 years of nothing, 3 months of treatment and then 4 little cherubs 1 after the other!! It's very noisy at home now 😬😬😋

Heya,

Yeah one of the first things that they tested me for was PCOS but I got the all clear there too. Wow, 4 little kiddies?!?!?! I bet they keep you busy :) I'd love more but the hub seems to think that he'd like as many kids as he has hands so that he can keep in control of them ... I'm working on him though :P

Yes they are 6, 4, 3 and almost 1. The middle two weren't planned as such as I didn't think I'd get pregnant without the medication, but God had other plans 😉

I'm even considering a part time job, which my husband is dead against, he is probably right, as it would be lots of work.

Anyway I wish you all the best of luck.

Have you got two then? How old are they? 💜
