Day 6 of jabs, just had a scan, starting double jabs tomorrow. Doc is predicting 13-14 eggs for next Monday… or Tuesday. I’ll be doing scan 2 on Friday to work out which day the egg collection is on.
The great thing about having a big break in between IVF cycles is that your brain truly gets to relax and forget details. The bad side (and it’s minor) is that I’ve forgotten the process! I mean, of course it’d be preferable if I never had to do so many cycles that I had the process memorised, but there’s just so many details that I’ve forgotten. Like, that once you start the injections, there’s going to be a surgery within 2 weeks of that! And all the acting aloof and vagueness that comes with it if you’ve decided not to tell your family about it. At this stage it looks like I’ll be doing the collection on a public holiday, which for my family usually means lots of phone calls and an attempt to do a big lunch.
I had also forgotten about the tiredness and bloating. And my crazy mood swings… I haven’t been too bad, but I have snapped a couple of times. I think it’s mostly due to the tiredness. Sigh. First world problems, hey?
Anyway, so a few more days to go.
Keep well everyone x
