Feels weird being back here.


Hi Guys.

As a back story, I was a very active member when TTC our now 7 year old son. (Is Wobbles still around?!)

Long story, sort of short - we ended up doing IVF and were sucessful with our first attempt. We had two leftover Grade 1 Embies which we froze.

Fast forward to Nov last year when we got that "call" about what we wanted to do with our still frozen little pickles.

Well I just turned 39 but we thought what the heck....

So 2 days ago I did a successful thawing of one Embie and transferred with a very smooth cycle.

Now I'm 2 days into that god awful TWW.

Thats us in a nutshell!

Congrats on round 2!
My fingers are crossed it all works out. Baby dust. The tww sucks something awful. How are you? Are you symptom spotting?

I also am starting next month. I am quite nervous. The injections scare me the most. I am also worried the egg retrieval will hurt... eek i have a low pain tolerance. Any tips pr advice would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Ladies..

Relax....

The injections are very small needles, like diabetic needles - so you really barely feel anything...pinch your skin first (it helped I had a lot of fat lol) or if you're super worried have a partner do it...Although I did my own. It becomes such a habit that you soon just do it like a routine vitamin...

The egg retrieval feels a bit uncomfortable, but I wouldn't say it was super painful. They gave me an IV with a little pain relief in it (kind of makes you feel a bit drunk) so that helps a lot....And it's not a long procedure.

You will both be fine....
If it was horrible I wouldn't have gone back for round two :P

And I'm super blessed to get two BFP from Two IVF attempts!
This is my latest round of tests....So it's all looking fantastic.
4 days until our BETA to confirm...

Congratulations!!! I am so happy for you 😀
Thank you for that reassurance. I really needed that. I am hoping to give myself the injections but hubby said if i cant manage it then he is more than willing to.
I wish you all the best on your pregnancy

Beautiful tests! So many wishes for you and your growing family.
