We are finally at the point where we are
officially trying again…. I can't believe how quickly time flies.
I have my IVF meds already, but I don't
start taking them until March 24th (we are going away for a week which has delayed the start).
Then the roller coaster begins!
It is quite strange, I have been fine for
the last few months, but I can already start to feel my stress levels rising - which is just not me. I am working hard
at the moment and we had to let some people go last week, which could be a factor, but I am sure that my anticipated cycle is starting to stress me already
without even realizing.
I have started to get moments where my heart
starts to +!#%, and I am finding it really hard to sleep. I have even had a few nightmares, which has never happened
On the positive side, I have made an
appointment with a psychologist on Monday (she is linked to my IVF center so they are used to people like me!). I never thought I would do this! I really want to focus on staying relaxed and calm. There is a lot of research out there
that links stress and IVF failure……… They offer a "mind and body" consult.
They offer things like stress yoga, acupuncture, nutritional advice, counseling etc.
"In research published in the
Reproduction, doctors compared pregnancy rates in couples that reported being stressed and those
who were not.
What they found: Pregnancy was much more likely to occur during months when couples
reported feeling "good" -- happy and relaxed. It was less likely to occur during the months they reported feeling tense or
As I mentioned before, the first time round - Tony and I was so happy and relaxed.
It worked first time (my beautiful little girls)! The last 2 times I have been
very stressed and tearful and I can feel myself going that way again already. It is so irrational - but I can't
control it - it is physical.
That is all for now, I'll keep you updated.
PS, my younger sister did have a little girl (Amber Lee). It was not as bad as I expected. I feel sort of draw to her though - more so than my nephews (is

Bridget, Maria, Rochelle, Katinka - thanks for your well wishes.
They both made it to day 3!
I have 2 little embryo's floating around inside me (they were transfered on Wednesday). It is day 5 today, so if they are still growing, implantation
should be happening in the next few days. I am not 100% confident, but fingers crossed. My HCG blood test will be on the
Embryos are graded from 1-3, 3 been good quality & 1 poor quality. Ours were 2's. They like to
see between 6-8 cells on day 3. One had 5 cells and the other had 7.
Lilly and Abigail were high quality (their embryo had 8 cells and was a grade 1 at day 3).
I have decided that I really don't like my IVF nurse! She is soooo patronizing. I have already made
an appointment with another center incase this does not work........ (i know that I am not been very optimistic, but I think having a "plan B" is
helping me stay sane.
