My Dreams

Today I am incredibly grateful for my dreams. My day was challenging right off the bat starting with a session of Accupuncture, followed by a blood test, followed by a trans-vaginal ultrasound. By the time I arrived at work I was feeling pretty violated!

I had my trigger injection tonight so it was my last jab until I go into day surgery on Friday for my egg collection. Fingers crossed this is it!

My dream of becoming a mum keeps me focussed on the end goal and helps me forget all the unpleasantness along the way.

Belly Fat

Today I am grateful for my belly fat. Yes, you read that right. I’m glad I have a bit of extra padding around the middle; my muffin top; my spare tyre; my donut; my love handles. Whatever you want to call it, I’m glad it’s there.

I’ve been putting so many needles in it lately that I’ve filled a sharps container already this month and I’m onto my second one, and that’s without including Accupuncture needles! When I started IVF treatment I really sucked at injecting myself; I would leave these massive bruises that would hurt for days. Now that I’m on my third cycle Im pleased to say Ive improved somewhat 😉

Thank goodness for my bit of belly fat. It gives me plenty of room to choose a new spot every single day.
Silver linings.

IVF Treatment

Today I am grateful for what scientists are capable of in the field of IVF treatment. Today I started the drugs for my third attempt, and although I’m not a fan of needles, without them my chances of having a baby would be a big fat zero.

So, as the rollercoaster ride of hormones and raw emotion is pulling away from the station, I’m triple checking my safety net and playing for a miracle.

Fingers crossed!
