IVF Diary 2 – The Result

22 Oct

A retrospective account of my recently completed IVF treatment.

25/8/13 progesterone

Don’t think I’ll be needing that test after all. Woke up this morning to bleeding and cramping. And not just the spotting type like before. No. The full on bright red it’s all over type.

Hubby is working overtime today at the Notting Hill Carnival. His timing is as ever impeccable.

Would really like to lie on the sofa all day feeling miserable, but have a feeling Oscar will be requiring a bit more stimulation than that.

I guess I’d better accept this failure sharp ish and move on, but I’m disappointed I haven’t even made it to test date.

Not even sure whether I should continue with the progesterone now until I’ve officially tested on Wednesday.

28/8/13 Test day.

I decided that since nothing is considered abnormal in IVF I had better continue with the progesterone until I had taken the test.

The bleeding has continued modestly since Sunday. I think had I not been taking the progesterone it would have turned into a full period by now.

So it was almost with complete detachment that I took the test this morning.


I held the test strip up to the light just to check that there wasn’t even the faintest line, but I knew the result.

It’s over. Now to get my son up with a cuddle, go into the office and pretend everything is rosy.

Til next time all.
