It might be the hormones but I am feeling lots of love and positivity this week.
So, the nurse promised me I'd feel better once I started stims and emotionally I did, although physically I feel tired. As I write this I'm about to do my 7th Ovaleap injection and tomorrow morning will be my 22nd Buserelin injection - PERSPECTIVE!
When I look at how far I've come I feel proud and also a little bit amazed and still in shock that it's actually happening. We're doing IVF.
And it's photos like this that remind me the toll it might be taking on us physically and emotionally but somehow we dig deep and keep going.
Don't be alarmed, besides the bruising and some red patches of irritation that big brown smudge is just a birthmark 😊
Over the course of the last 3 weeks I've had such lovely comments from friends and family who know what we're going through. Mostly about how strong I am. "I don't feel it" is usually my reply but genuinely I feel like I couldn't do it without those people cheering me on.
So, just a little bit of time tonight to reflect on what's happened so far and feel grateful for the opportunity to try something like this. Ahead of our progress scan tomorrow morning, tonight's post is just a thank you really to all those people who have kept me going (I'm still going to need you so don't go anywhere please!).
So thanks for the cards, the little gifts that you thought were just a bit of fun, little check in texts and the time spent chatting on the phone. It's all meant the world to me. And at times has perked me up when I really needed it without you perhaps realising.
As for my TTC sisters, the support is of course immense. That goes without saying. Thanks for supportive comments, liking my posts and keeping up with your own regular posts so we can all learn from each other and share our stories. I'm so proud of how far everyone has come.
Wish us luck for tomorrow! 🤞🏻
