The realisation that you are really pregnant

I never allowed myself to picture me pregnant since I was diagnosed with endometriosis 6 years ago. I didn't want to in case I never get to be pregnant and it put too much pressure on me. So I never pictured me and my husband in the future with kids either. For me it was... Continue Reading →

FET 13 days past transfer: Second blood tests

The 48 hours after the first blood test I started Pinterest-ing nursery pictures like crazy. I have been very good at not getting excited about nursery and baby pictures popping up on my Pinterest feed in the past. I mean what is the point if you don’t know if you will ever be pregnant. Once... Continue Reading →

FET 11 days past transfer: First blood tests

Just before 11 am, the phone rings. At last! I went to PathCare (pathologists) to have blood test done before work and walked out by 7:30 am. The sooner I have it done the sooner we hear the results. I am not going to lie, I was so distracted the entire morning. Literally checking my... Continue Reading →

FET 10 days past transfer: are we there yet?

We returned home this evening after a lovely visit to the in-laws. My mother in law is luckily a qualified nurse so she was great with my progesterone injections. My bud has a few solid lumps by now, but they just have to take it and push through. Who knows it  all might be worth... Continue Reading →

FET Day 19: Post transfer day

The last few hours was jam packed, weirdly wonderful with the potential of being life changing. We had our second attempt at transfering a fertilised embryo in about 9 months. The doctor, nurses and embryologist all seems more optimistic this time round. Even my husband picked up on it, and he haven't seen them in... Continue Reading →

FET Day 18: Our stars are aligning

It has been a weirdish week since my last scan. Well weird in a good way. This past weekend my mom and sister and her 2 little rascals stayed with us (her husband is in England for 2 weeks). There was a lot of joking about my last weekend I can drink wine, eat sushi... Continue Reading →

FET Day 11: Third scan

Today was my third scan. It is all about getting my uterus lining to 8mm. On Monday we were on 5.7mm already which is slightly better than the previous time. I was good news. The doctor even smiled at me. We are on 7.7mm! Which is just awesome seeing as there is still another week... Continue Reading →

FET Day 8: Getting closer to transfer day!

So today was what I thought is my day 1 scan. I have been injecting myself for a week now with Lucrin, which acts as a hormone ‘eliminator’. In other words my own hormones are removed from the picture and I am taking medication that takes over the function of my hormones in the correct... Continue Reading →

FET: Day minus 8, here we go again!

My appointment with the doctor was this morning. Today we heard whether or not my body is ready for the next attempt. I must say I have been very calm this weekend, I think it has to do with the fact that I have been through this before. You learn from life experiences, how difficult... Continue Reading →

Our little embryo would have been born this week!

Our little embrio would have been born this week. It sound surreal. Unfortunately my body terminated the pregnancy in the 5th week. I am a firm believer in everything happens for a reason. I don't always understand while I am in the moment, but it is comforting to see things in that light. Especially the... Continue Reading →
