IVF Diary Vol II: 31 Jan – 1 Feb 16

Medication(s) administered and dosage(s). Progesterone in Oil 1ml Intra-muscular injection, vivelle dot estrogen patches 0.1mg x2.  I still have not mastered injecting this thing myself, but getting used to seeing the needle going in and injecting the oil myself.

Medical procedures undertaken. Nil

What are my symptoms?  I have had some aches and pains around my ovaries.  I am also quite tired, mostly because I have not been sleeping overly well since starting the progesterone.

How do I feel today? A little stressed with work situation at the moment.  At work as we were trying to sort some issues out amongst the team, and I was sat there consciously trying to remain calm, breathing through my nose and exhaling through my mouth slowly and consciously.  That worked for the morning, the afternoon I was just plain sad about work.  Someone who I barely know came to find me after a meeting and asked if I was OK, I seemed a bit sad and not my cheery self.

Any results?  At 5pm my phone rang with the clinic’s number, I couldn’t think why they were calling me.  The nurse answered the other line in a somber voice.  She had bad news.  Our 9 embies didn’t make it to cryopreservation.  So, no frosties this time around.  I tried hard not to cry on the phone, and burst into tears at my work desk as soon as I got off.  I cried in the car on the way home from work, trying not crash through the blubbering tears and snot.  We are gutted.  I am grateful we managed to transfer two at least.

What’s next? Beta HcG test will be 12 days from now :-s

Weight. NSTR.

Waist. NSTR.

Boobs. NSTR.

*Notes.  I take First Response Reproductive Health multi vitamin gummies (pre-natal) and CoQ10 200mg gummies daily.  NSTR = Nothing Significant To Report.

    I am so so so so so sorry your embies didn’t make it to freeze. I know what it feels like to get to the end of the cycle with nothing. It is just heartbreaking and so exhausting. Hang in there and nurture yourself when you can X

    I am so incredibly sad that none of your embabies made it to freezing. I’m so disappointed for you. But I’m going to stay hopeful for the two snuggling in right now. Sending you and hoping you take it easy and be kind to yourself during your tww.

    Really shite news about your embryos. The main thing is the two inside you, and they are in the best possible incubator at the moment. It’s awful when you have stuff going on at work and IVF worries swirling around your head at the same time. Hang in there x

    Oh I’m so sorry to hear about your embryos! I am hoping that you have twins right now and they are settling in for the long haul. And I’m sorry about yucky work and so on as well. This whole thing is so stressful and such a rollercoaster of emotions!

    I’m so sorry about your little embryos. Hopefully both your embies are snuggling up nicely. Thinking of you. Oh and I’m glad the transfer went well. I’m excited for your beta! I’m really really hoping this is it for you! xx

    Oh no, I am so sorry to read about your embryos. I can’t even imagine the crushing disappointment you must be feeling. All of our hopes rest on those two embryos snuggling in right now. I’ve been thinking of you and sending lots of positivity your way, and will continue to do so. *hugs*
