Not with the IVF although i did give myself a bruise whilst injecting.
No, what im struggling with is giving stuff up. Caffeine and alcohol being the main ones and i have no idea why.
I usually find it so easy to give it up as i barely drink and im used to decaf but today it all seems a little unfair. Ok. Very unfair
Im comparing myself to fertile ladies, who don’t have to give up anything to get pregnant.
Its worth pointing out i have no problem giving stuff up once those embies are back where they belong, at that point im pregnant and it is so so easy to stop. I feel special when im PUPO (pregnant until proven otherwise) but this pre-pregnancy giving up is TOUGH.
I was hoping when it started yesterday it was just a one day thing but I’ve woken up feeling the same.
It probably sounds so selfish of me. I mean whats an extra month on top of 9 months. But today im struggling with how many hoops us IVFers have to jump through, the guilt we feel for doing what any other woman would do.
