Right. I’m on day 4 of injections. First time on Gonal F. I have headaches, sore throat and a stuffy nose. I feel nauseous in stuffy rooms. Bubsy has croup. Do I have some adult version of the viral-ey croup, or do I have Gonal F side effects? It doesn’t matter really.
So in two days time I have a scan and then hopefully my EC gets scheduled in for next week. At the same time I’m waiting for them to tell me to jump at work. We’re meant to be in a consultation phase for a fairly high profile job, so it’s getting busy. But after two years of failed IVF cycles, I now adopt the “let life and IVF” coexist attitude – neither is to stop the other. So, if I have to do an EC the day I’m meant to go out and consult then so be it. At the same time I’m not going to pull back at work because of anticipated IVF stuff. This attitude has made life a lot easier for me over the past year 🙂
And did I tell you? We adopted a dog two weeks ago.
Two years ago we were definitely holding back on everything in life because we were waiting for IVF to work. That kind of approach to life definitely made things much more stressful and unfulfilling.So anyway, see how we go this time. Fingers crossed that it goes well. But just taking it one day at a time.
