FET: Coming to terms with a negative test result

To be honest this sucks, big time! Getting a negative test result is one thing if you're trying to conceive naturally. If it was part of an FET cycle, it also means we just flushed R25000 down the drain. My fifth and final blood test results came back. It confirmed we weren't pregnant anymore! On...

FET: Blood test number 4!

Blah blah blah bad news, blah blah your count is down to 15. Blah blah chemical pregnancy. Blah blah blood test in 4 days. Blah blah try again in 2 cycles! Blah blah I'm sorry. Blah blah. That's kind of what the phone call felt like. That is the summary of the call I got... Continue Reading →

FET: Third set of blood tests

How long can one week be? I had blood tests done again this morning. Third time in one week. Test one my count was 5, the nurse prepared me for bad news. Second test, my count was 17. Exceeding everyone's expectations after I have prepared myself for the not so good news. Today I went... Continue Reading →

FET: Second blood tests

How much can 1 persons life change in 48 hours? Or at least the outlook on life. I was at the pathology lab 7:30 am, wanted to get it done as soon as possible. The sooner they draw my blood the sooner I can get the results and know what's going on. The last 48... Continue Reading →

FET: The long wait for blood tests!

This week is dragging by super slowly. I am trying to keep my mind occupied with other stuff, but I guess it's only human to think about the upcoming blood tests next week. The nurse told me that they usually get the results within approximately 2 hours when they mark the forms as urgent, which... Continue Reading →

FET: Day 23, implanting day!

It is finally here! After 4 months of doctor's visits and hormone medication, emotional rollercoasters, the works. I have given myself 15 injections with the initial IVF cycle (the nurse also did 1), and 26 more with this FET cycle. And then my husband also gave me another 5 injections in this cycle to date!...

FET: Today was not a good day

In general, I think I am a fairly calm person. I won't describe myself as an emotional person. I think I handle stressful situations fairly well. Mostly by reminding myself of what my master's supervisor told me the one day right at the beginning when I ask him 'where do I start?' He just calmly... Continue Reading →

FET: Day 16 appointment

So this is it. Day 16. Today we hear our fate. My doctor was in surgery for the morning so my appointment was scheduled for just after 11:00. Which means I had to go to work and then come up with some reason as to why I am popping out for extended early lunch. Only... Continue Reading →

FET: Day 13 appointment

Today is all about 2 mm. I have been injecting myself for the past 22 days. That is a total of 37 injections that I have given myself over the past few months. I must say, it does gets easier and I am getting better at it every day. Maybe I'll be a nurse in... Continue Reading →
