Day 61: Forget the 2 week wait… This is the 12 week wait!

OMG, I’m at Week 5 Day 4 (39 days) pregnant and I want to ask you: How on earth do you deal with the waiting? Waiting… and waiting… and waiting… for something bad good to happen. I know I’ve said this before and I’m honestly not gloating (because I know how awful it is if…

Day 54: Clearer-blue

Just for continuity, I decided to replicate the not-so-Clearblue test this morning, as a control, because I like to think of myself as vaguely scientific and slightly irrational, before informing the doctor. It was a lot clearer this time… I think this is a safe cross! Whoop whoop. This was at 04:30 this morning as…

Day 53: Not-so-Clearblue

      It’s testing day! You’d think this would be a good thing now the Two Week Wait is over. I barely slept last night as I kept waking up in between having dreams about negative pregnancy tests. (Yep, even my subconscious isn’t holding out much hope. I mean, that would be too easy,…

Day 50: Snoozed out

Omigosh, it’s day 50 – how did that happen? I am a lot of the way through the 2 week wait. (I’m not sure on pregnancy acronyms, so it’s either 2WW or TWW I guess. I have *no clue* about the whole numbers and letters thing!) And I’m TIRED.Ā Really tired. I haven’t even been working…

Day 47: Feeling more human (but not pregnant)

Hello! Well after my outburst last week (Day 43) I have to apologise to everyone who read it and thought “What is this nutter on about?” as I was feeling at the end of my tether. I am now feeling a bit more human! What actually happened is I ended up working until super late…

Day 42: Little guy, you’re our only hope!

A day 2 (post transfer) update from me The embryologist called me this morning (1 day post transfer) and told me that none of our remaining embryos were “good enough” for freezing. šŸ˜¦ This means Little Guy, or Thomas (as T has christened him… I think he’s come round to the idea that he’s a…

Day 41: Nahpoopo

So I posted a while back that I was flummoxed by all the IVF and pregnancy acronyms, but I do know this one: PUPO. Which is what I am, in theory… :O Although T and I discussed it and decided we are more statistically minded and it was more likely to beĀ Not Pregnant Until Proven…

Day 39: Day 3 and 6 little chicks still growing

Helloooooo it’s me again! A quick update from me on this crazy IVF journey. I had a rather snoozy weekend and quite a lot of pain in my stomach. Also I am either super bloated or I have been eating way too much. It’s probably a combination of the two. I rested up on Saturday…
