So on Tuesday morning i was freaking out about needing knee surgery and being alone, and my home is a pigsty because I haven't really unpacked from holidays and lets face it the place wasn't immaculate because 'holidays' and i wasn't really seeing how i would fix it any time soon.

Beside the carting of stuff upstairs and down all i could think of was chore like stuff so i put a post on my local family FB page and asked if a teenager would like to make some cash after school once a week.

I ended up meeting a lovely girl and her mum and actually my loss came up and my subsequent IVF, and i realised actually this could be the start of something great.

Even though i am not having the surgery, having someone nearby who can run errands for me whilst doing the IVF on my own.

And when bub gets here. how great will it be to have a teen girl be able to come over once a week and unpack and pack the dishwasher. watch the baby while i shower. or even take the baby for a walk around the block so i can have a nap!

The mum struck me as someone who wouldn't be able to help sending down a casserole with her daughter every now and then!

I seriously believe things happen for a reason and as sh*t as my knee was/is, now its not delaying IVF maybe the reason was i needed to meet these people?

Oh I agree, cultivate the relationship. I used to do some basic babysitting and chores for a mum a couple of doors down from us, it was great for me to earn a little money and allowed her to go to appointments, exercise etc.

So annoyingly my period arrive 2 days early. So not sure they will let me start this cycle as my first injection would be CD3.

Hi OP, periods never behave when you need them to. I have pretty much always started meds on day 3 for IVF cycles. Are you doing and antagonist cycle? If so I am going to speculate it will be all good for Monday

Also what time is day did your period arrive? My clinic said after 3pm day 1 was the next day

Best of luck

Yeah unfortunately it was god damn morning! No pushing those boundaries!

Mine was CD2 after a down reg. Doing a short cycle this time so not sure of start day. I suppose I will find out tomorrow.

Oh And, I'm sorry for your loss and you recent bad luck :-(

Why can't our bodies behave... But I suppose IVF is because or bodies don't behave in the first place...

Good luck with you FS tomorrow.

I have no idea what this all involves - what’s happening with the first injection? What does it do? All I know is that I’m excited that it’s starting!

First injection of the hormone that grows (hopefully multiple) eggs!

I have to inject every day for the next 10 - 12 days.

I am on double the dose I had last time.

I have bloods to check how I am responding next Tuesday. And then a scan next Friday (internal ultrasound to check one follicle growth)
