So here we are, 1 week in from starting our FET treatment. Wow i am shattered... i had forgotten how utterly exhausting it is to do this. Not only from the stress of it all but the DR drug Buserelin is literally like a sedative! Ha ha. Ok, maybe not quite a sedative, but you get my meaning!
Aside from feeling hungry all the time (this could also be from the steroids though) being more tearful than usual and feeling a little nauseous, it is just the tiredness that is a struggle again. I read back on this blog to when i was DR the first time round and saw that i was complaining of the exact same thing then. I want to go to bed as soon as i can in the evenings, and even if i have an amazing sleep i still feel tired a few hours after waking up.
The injections are going well. Most of the time it can be a bit tricky to get the needle in but on the odd occasion it is going in relatively easy. My tummy is starting to look like a dot-to-dot now though! Ha ha.
I am due my period today seeing as i am now on CD28. However there is no guarantee that it will happen today, in fact the Buserelin can actually delay your period. So i am expecting to come on within the next 2-3 days or so. After AF has arrived then i can email the clinic to let them know, and continue the countdown to the Base Scan on the 5th.
Now we are a week in i have settled in to the treatment quite well i think. I am again not thinking so much about the end goal. More so the little goals in between. Like each injection, and getting to the scan dates, and eventually ET and OFD (Official Test Date). I feel that i am living each day as it happens, but also keeping a positive mind on things.
As my brother said to me 'Stay Positive, and it will Be Positive'. Bless him, i don't think he quite realises how much i have kept that comment in my mind.
Thank you all for your positive thoughts for us!
