1st FET tomorrow - nervous!

Postby Susan » Mon Nov 04, 2002 6:18 pm

Hi,<br><br>Just discovered this site. Mixed feelings about it. As in, I'm not sure it's good for me to dwell on this! Would I not get through the next 2 weeks withoug focusing on it? I'm sure someone will tell me I couldn't even if I tried. Planning to take three days off work so hope that's enough. I think I'll feel it's enough by Friday! <br><br>The most helpful comments I found are those that imply it's a lottery. That's makes me feel a bit better as then I think - it's not up to me, I can only do my best.<br><br>Hopefully will be in touch over the next few weeks.<br><br>Susan

hi susan,<br> So glad you posted on here. I know it sounds corny, but we are all here to support one another, and to be honest, it's only the fact that i have been able to log on this board and get positive vibes and comments from all the girls on here that has kept me sane through all of this.<br> Good luck with all your treatment, i've just started injecting tonight, and am doing IUI with donor sperm, so i still have a little way to go. Hope to see you around,<br><br>Heather<br>xxx
Got pregnant with IUI triplets in March 04. One triplet stopped growing at 9 weeks. Gave birth to twin boys in Sep 04, Ciaran sadly lost his fight. Brennan's thriving.Looking to give Brennan a sibling soon.

Hello Susan<br><br>I had my 1st FET last Monday (28th) - I was back a work on the Wednesday. Last time (when I had a fresh embie transfer) I took the whole 2 weeks off and was bored out of my brains. If I'm honest, I ended up doing house stuff that I should have been doing just because I was so bored. Sitting at my desk is much safer and keeps me out of mischief.<br><br>Good luck for today.<br><br>Sarah x<br>

Hi Susan<br><br>Welcome to the site. Good luck for the transfer.<br><br>I had my first FET on 24th Oct, so going through the awful 2ww at the moment.<br><br>I didn't go back to work until the following Tuesday. I agree with Sarah - taking the whole 2 weeks off kills you. You need something to try and take your mind off it. As long as you're not a brick layer, you should be fine going back after a few days. Just take it easy.<br><br>love<br>Caroline<br>xx
