The road of IVF So 2017 brought us our first round of ivf.
It's a surreal experience to say the least.Such a roller coaster of emotions, one minute your up and then next your sat there crying at an advert because the girl on it made cupcakes to say sorry! It's a process that challenge your fears, opens your eyes and makes you see things in a whole different perspective. We started with our initial meeting where we spent an hour signing all our paperwork. This was basically to give permission on what would happen with our eggs that didn't quite become good enough, permission to freeze some if any were viable. To even transfer and etc, it all had to be signed for.
Also to use the embryos should my husband die. This includes counselling.So with that we had bloods and a scan done too, then it was just a case of waiting for 1st day of cycle to begin. Drugs were delivered.

Today (15th October) is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness day. Its a time to remember all those Angels born sleeping, or never made it to their mothers arms, or did so but never made it out of hospital or worse still made it all the way home only to pass away at a later stage.

At 7 pm tonight all over the world people will be lighting a candle creating a wave of light for 1 hour to remember the Angels by. I'll be lighting mine in remembrance of my lil baby i lost in April 2011 JJ. Will you light one too??

Routine goes wooooosh straight out the window. No more up early for school, breakfast, hands, face teeth and dressed. Coming home from school and making sure their bedrooms are tidy. Bedtime at 8:30!

So only 3 weeks left...
