I'm a bit less negative today, thank you for all those comments yesterday. I'm trying not to focus on lots of possible bad outcomes, and assuming that things are just fine. A little slow, but fine.
Finally got through to the clinic to book my next scan appointments, only to find that Thursday is completely booked up. This has never happened to me before. They put me on a waiting list, but I'm wondering if I should just take this as a sign that I'm not meant to have a scan on Thursday?
How often do you guys go in for checks during your IVF? Because having read lots and lots of your stories, and having been through the failed IUI, and having read a couple of infertility books, they collectively give me the impression that you get scanned and blood taken about once every two days. My clinic does blood (usually no scan) on day 5, blood and scan on day 9, and blood and scan if necessary on day 12. Isn't this a bit light? Or does all the blood and scanning lead to lots of anxiety (me clearly a case in point) and not much actual change to or help with the protocol?
Still feeling ok, still not convinced this is going to work, but finding it hard not to lapse into moments of annoying IVF-newbie type enthusiasm about what might happen.
