Day 3

I have a very tender feeling womb today, not sure if it is the endometriosis or the hormones.  Feeling very uncomfortable right now. Spent the day hanging out with the lovely Miss JJ, we had green smoothies and my left over butternut squash and chickpea curry. I love to feed friends my home cooked food! I stopped by to see my coach and training partners at the GymBox. I was hoping I would be getting some walking in, but I did not feel like it. Tired. Still was lovely to see them all. My usual Tuesday training would be from 3.30 to 5 pm intense leg specific training, then from 6 – 8pm double Bartendaz classes at the Gymbox!!!  I am so gonna miss my training. I train hard and love the feeling I get from it. Doctors orders are gentle walks only for now…

Injection was quick and painful. Hubby is tired, I am tired so off to bed now.

A quick notice I will be moving this version of my blog to www.ibelieveForever.com hopefully by tomorrow. So those of you who have so kindly followed me on www.iBelieveForever.wordpess.com please note the change. I look forward to settling there and getting into this blog world!

IVF day 3

 

My First IVF Injections

Its Day 2! after finishing my first post last night, I had my first Injection of Buserelin. Was actually quite a funny experience. I wanted my hubby to do it, he was not with me when the nurse gave me a very brief “how to do your jabs tutorial!”, so I was there trying to explain to him what I could vaguely remember, my wonderful housemate made sure she had read all the instructions (why do men avoid reading the instruction leaflets???)  I then started to feel myself getting nervous, and queasy at the thought of the Buserelin being injected, she started getting very blunt and in her lovely Polish accent started commanding me to stop looking at what they where doing and for hubby to “Stab me quickly with it!!”  It was over with quickly, think we where all relieved and happy with our team work!!  I actually found it ok, my leg felt odd for a while, a little itchy.

I woke up this morning to my hubby telling me how much he loved me, always the best feeling to hear him say that, cause I know his love is unconditional. We prayed together, we really have been making an effort to spend more time in prayer, to put God first, always a great start to the day.

I felt quite tired this morning, not my usual self.  I would normally be up and ready for my HITT training, and have the energy to train again with my Bartendaz crew.  I just pottered about a little, did house work and made sure I had my green smoothie! Those of you who know me will know that a green smoothie every morning without fail has been my breakfast for nearly 3 years now. I will post more about green smoothies and the benefits I have had from them,  I can’t emphasise enough that everyone should have a green smoothie in the morning, make it their daily habit. Your body will love you for it, and you will feel amazing! As soon as I had my green smoothie I felt good, and made my way into the west end for a meeting and a casting. Both went really well.. Lots of exciting things in the pipeline.

Came home, cooked hubby some free range chicken and rice with plenty of veg!, he too has to eat well and be in  the best health, doctors orders and mine!! lol I had my dinner, (am following a vegan based diet while I am on IVF treatment). After dinner it was time for my injection, still felt nervous and hubby was very confident with it today, he told me to kiss him while he did the jab :) I really felt the injection today, was painful and stung so much. Not looking forward to the next one, thank god it is over with quickly!
