This week has been a huge relief. First the kidney stones have finally passed, so I'm feeling a ton better. The morning sickness nausea is still there, but I'm not especially hungry so I don't mind. (The kidney stone nausea in contrast drives me mad, as I feel desperate to eat but can hardly stomach anything.)
They IVF clinic doesn't consider a cycle successful till they find a heartbeat, and yesterday we were booked in for the decisive 7 weeks scan. It was such a relief to see the little flashing of a tiny heart.
Oh and while on the topic - if you ever end up taking fish oil capsules in the future make sure you don't accidentally pop them! For some reason I though the oil would be fairly neutral and processed, but it turns out it smells absolutely vile! That's what I get for not taking them straight away, I absent mindedly gave it a squish and then had to swallow the vile thing as quickly as possible. (Though I'm vegetarian, I have enough food intolerances and digestive problems that we felt it was worth taking the fish oil tablets just to make sure I wasn't missing anything vital.)
I'm still finding it a bit difficult concentrate and write, but hopefully I'll be posting more regularly soon - I've got a new crochet project I just can't wait to share!
