Attending A Fertility With a Child

I keep thinking about what we are going to do with Lucky at the time of the clinic appointment.

I remember vividly; waiting for a scan at Nurture and a couple came in to have a consultation appointment.

I hated them..

Their daughter would have been about 16-19mths old(similar age to Lucky now), and there they were selfish buggers, not happy with just being blessed with one daughter, they are back again for another.. AND to add insult to injury going to flaunt her in front of a packed reception area full of hormonal, desperate, tired women! How awful am I!

With these vivid thoughts, I spoke to the receptionist and said we live in Nottingham alone and our son doesn't attend nursery - is there separate room my husband can wait with him whilst I wait in the reception for the appointment. She said "oh no no, it will be fine. All the nurses will love seeing him and it will be good for the women to see a success story in the flesh"

Ummm Really???!

FET Consultation Appointment Made

Discussed things with Dan the other day, and decided to go ahead with FET sooner rather than later.

Still sticking with Dr James Hopkisson which means we have a wait, but we're not in a huge rush!

29th May back at Nurture Fertility Clinic for a review appointment

Dan has a whole list of questions to ask him already lol.. Bless him, he's getting more into this fertility malarkey than me!

Broody Husband Wanting FET

Dan has mentioned every day for the last two weeks..

"Should we just do the FET now"

"Let's call the clinic in the morning for an appointment"

"We better have one sooner rather than later".

I've been mean and not bothered replying to him..

I'm undecided.. I want to do it, but what it fails?! £1050 is a lot to gamble with!

On the plus side, the embryologist has given us great success rates, as Lucky was conceived from the same batch.

We are planning on putting the recommended 2 blastocyst back in, which means the possibility of TWINS!! Eek... Then there is a fellow IVF friend who is now pregnant with triplets, she had 2 put back and 1 of the embryo's split!!

Now can you see my worry?!

I should just go with the flow, and see what happens..

Maybe I'm over thinking all of this?!

Ok, maybe well discuss it, and get a Consultants appointment

*sigh* Confused

Grapefruit Juice & Cervical Mucus

Wow it really does work!
Thought I'd give it a break today, after downing loads yesterday, and I can really tell a difference.
I haven't peaked on the cbfm yet but even so the CM is completely different having not drunk any today.

Grapefruit juice is quick, effective and definitely a keeper!

Mooncup & TTC Naturally

A friend has been TTC for 8months with no success, so she upped her game by using a CBFM and Mooncup - hey presto she's pregnant!

Already using a CBFM which I haven't had any problems with and will keep using it, as it's useful to know my high days aswell as peaks with Dan working nights.

Received the mooncup in the post a few days ago, sterilised it and gave it a go.

Seemed a fiddle to get in, as I was all fingers and thumb, but after a few tries I was able to get it in and out no problem.

Got my first high on the CBFM this morning, so after DTD I propped my bum up with a pillow and inserted it.. Certainly nowhere near as messy as I expected it to be. I was able to go to the loo straight after and not worry about everything pouring back out!

We DTD during the day, as Dans working nights, so I'll be keeping it in all today and will take it out in the morning.

As you know Dan thinks this is all pointless, but for less than £20 I thought its worth a try!

I'm also back on the grapefruit juice to increase CM... Which worked instantly. I quite like the taste of grapefruit, so seemed to down the litre box last night! By the morning my CM was in abundance. So that's definitely a keeper!!

Just hope with the increased CM, blocking the semen in with the mooncup... maybe, just possibly the egg and just 1 sperm can find each other through my damaged tubes!!

Theres hoping!!
