Week 7

Doc wanted to do anther scan as he hadn’t seen for himself. I wasn’t going to argue. The fruits are now both about 1cm in length and looking strong! It was really amazing how much bigger they looked and how much stronger the heartbeats were. Absolutely amazing. I took a video too but don’t know how to […]

Today it’s 9DP FET, right?

“9DP FET” = 9 days post frozen embryo transfer. I am absolutely knackered but the heat has gone down a bit now. It is about 33 in the daytime now and yesterday was cloudy. O_O WOW! I have no idea what, if anything, is going on in my tummy, but A has been massaging my […]
