Hello! Today we're 8+2 and we had our first scan 8 days ago. All was well and there was 1 little one with a strong heartbeat, measuring 1cm. What a relief! Sadly the second embryo didn't make it, so there's no twinnies for us this time around. However, we are okay about this and just very grateful to have been successful at all.

My whole attitude has totally changed since that scan and I'm no longer anxious - thank goodness.

So all the worries have gone but the symptoms have not. I still feel pretty rubbish to be honest and am counting down the weeks until I can stop taking the Crinone Gel. I'm sure it's that stuff that's making me feel so bad.

This week I'm suffering from nausea, a heightened sense of smell, sore boobs and frequent urination (especially throughout the night). The period-like cramps came back again yesterday and today which seem to be a normal thing when you're about 8 weeks.

That's all I have to report at the mo.

  1. Hi there - I've been trawling the interweb for a blog just like this! So thank you very much! I have not yet started the IVF process (have our first appointment later this month) but I have been terrified about it, mostly because it is so overwhelming. I am so thankful for your posts about your experience throughout your journey and I really do hope you continue posting throughout your pregnancy. Hope you have a wonderful 9 months :-)

    1. Thanks Kiran. I hope all goes well for you. : ) xxxx
