Fifth time lucky. Is there such a thing as fifth time lucky? I know it's always third time lucky, "oh don't you worry my love, third time lucky aye". Well our third time has been and gone, so fifth time lucky? Or will I be asking this when we have been through like 10 fertility treatments, shit I hope not, will I still be clinging onto hope when I'm old and sitting in a rocking chair saying to my gardener guy " bring in some more veges love, we need to keep healthy for the next IVF, oh oh careful, I left my walking stick on the lawn, don't trip over it".
After 4 fertility treatments and 2 long years, I know my body so damn well, I'm so tuned into every twinge. This was obvious yesterday, I knew exactly what was going on down there. I was ovulating. And how did I know this? well seriously it felt like my right ovary was housing an egg the size of a basketball. It was alot more obvious than previous ovulation's. Could I have felt this time more because it was my first cycle after the IVF? does that make a difference? Has anyone else experienced this? The egg has now been released into the big wide world of gardener guys sperm, so I don't feel it anymore today. I hope with all the nourishing that's been going on during my acupuncture appointment's that my inside's are like some kind of exclusive resort where everyone wants to be, but only the hippest and hottest get in, goodbye to all those unemployed slow sluggish, confused sperm, hello to all the smart, fast, worldly savvy sperm. The egg is waiting, lounging around on one of those sun loungers by the pool, go and get it!
Apart from natural ovulation the weekend has been uneventful, (did I actually just imply that ovulation was eventful? oh dear). Our summer has all of a sudden decided to pack up and leave, very rudely without any warning I must say, one second I'm squeezing myself into a pair of shorts I wore pre fertility drugs, then I'm hastily squeezing myself into a pair of warm pants. But no, seriously I'm happy to report the swollen fertility drug stomach we all know so well seems to have gone down, and I almost feel back to my normal self, although there are still a couple of kilos hanging around, but to be honest I don't really know if I care enough to be bothered struggling to lose them. That bloated swollen stomach will be back again when the drugs start in April so why kill myself trying to solve something that Is only going to resurface again. Stupid drugs.
Fifth time lucky for us, I hope so, otherwise you are going to have to continue to read the same shit month after month, I need some new material!
