Wishing time away...

Urrrrgh, this wait is just so hard. I just wanna know!!
Again the meds are doing their job and I had a relatively cramp-free day. I kinda have a full feeling in uterus but nothing painful.

I'm booked in for intralipids tomorrow so at least I will feel like I am doing something proactive!

I know I could test on thurs as it'll be nine days past transfer but I just cannot risk getting a negative and having to face work. So we'll probably test on Sat. (even though official test day is Sunday as set by the clinic!)

Oh please may this work......please!

Staying Calm

Thanks to the medication, my uterus has remained completely calm and "Un-irritated" today (if that's a word!). Again I just chilled out, managed to sleep for an hour in the afternoon. Had dinner in my parents' house and watched the Man U Vs Barca match on the couch wrapped in a fleece blanket - so cosy.
Just in bed now and hoping to have another good night's sleep under my belt. I'm not trying to give this 2ww any thought or bother worrying, what will be, will be....

Positive vibes....

Another Lazy Day

Well I had another great sleep today - slept heavily until 11.30. Just up now and doing a few bits (nothing strenuous). My uterus is surprisingly relaxed - not a peep out of it! Meds must be working.

My mam is picking me up shortly to make dinner for me in her house. Yay - just gonna chill on her couch.

Back to work tomorrow - really hope people don't start asking where I was. My colleagues are so lovely that they be worried if I was sick but I just hate lying to people. I'll just have to deflect!

Wow I think I just did a sleep marathon. I was asleep by about 11pm last night. Woke up when DH was getting up for work (8ish), had some breakfast and slept until 4pm!!! And actually I could have slept on longer but forced myself to wake up properly.

My uterus has been staying lovely and relaxed, thankfully.
DH on way home from work now so looking forward to dinner now!!

Long may this last....

The transfer went VERY smoothly. My favourite doc did the transfer - he's so gentle. I had to empty my bladder a little as I was in excruciating pain as the transfer was about a half hour late. Apart from that it went well. The clinic have moved premises since the last transfer and have changed some protocol. Like this time they just wheeled my bed out of the theatre after the transfer. Previously, I'd have to walk out of the theatre myself. So I really felt like I'd given my embies a better chance this time.

Anyway just chilling in bed - watching Grey's Anatomy. How much maternity leave do you get in America anyone? Looks like Callie had gone back to work when the baby is only a few wks old - seems v young!

I wonder how this TWW will go - I usually start off well and then turn into a crazed mad woman. Ah it'll prob be the same again!!! But remember this time IT WILL WORK :)

Transfer Day

Transfer day....again. Really hope this is the last one!!! Transfer booked for 3pm.

Uterus has been ok - slight little crampiness comes and goes. Gonna take a Valium for transfer so that should help and then I will continue on with the Buscopan and Salbutamol. I plan to listen to a meditation  as soon as I get back from the clinic and hopefully snooze for a few hours.

Wish me luck fellow bloggers :)

Relaxed....for the moment!

Last night, my 'irritable uterus' was feeling irritated!! Urrrgh! Anyway I upped my Buscopan today and I've been feeling good. The Valium at night helps (I could get used to relaxing).
Oh please dear uterus, stay chilled out....please.

Irritable uterus!!

Well I'll be having my transfer in 5 days. Feeling ok about it. On Sunday I started having cramps (9 days on meds) and totally freaked out. Like WTF is wrong with me?? I rang the clinic on Monday to let the doc know. So on Tuesday I was in for my scan (everything looks great). I met RE who said she'd put me on 'Buscopan' to relax uterus, 3 tabs a day. Ive to take Valium at night (loving it!), and then just before transfer I've to start 'Salbutomol' again to relax uterus. I asked her had she ever heard of this before as honestly I was starting to feel really abnormal :( She said yes she's seen this a lot - it's an 'irritable uterus'. So I felt better...a little.

Anyway, so far, so good, the meds seem to be keeping my womb chilled out.
5 days to go and counting.....

Here we go again!

Well I haven't posted in ages! Nothing much to say really. I went in for my down-reg scan yesterday and all looks good. So today I start all my meds!! I feel like I sound like a broken record! Like, how many times have I written this post...I'm tired of it all.

Apart from being bored of this repetitive TTC life, I'm feeling positive about the cycle. It is going to work, I just know it. PMA
