Blighted Bellies n Pelvic Dreams

My journey to having a baby as a 38 yo with undetected Pelvic Inflammation Disease

No steroids, just gestational diabetes now…..

Sorry but f@ck this sh!t!! Why cant i just be pregnant? not pregnant with…….something!!!!

Rd 1 ivf -sperm liked my girls too much n over fertilised.

rd 2 icsi – but too much progesterone so transfer cancelled, only to successfully implant fet the next month.

progerstone headache for 13 wks, morning sickness till 20wks plus….some foods still give indigestion.

low lying placenta all along and at 24 wks booked in for steroids.

go for steroids and they are cancelled due to diabetes and they muck up yr sugar levels for up to 2 wks.

one hour visit to diabetes dietician, load up with testers, food lists n instructions, off to chemist to buy other bits n medication to help.

isnt it hard enough that i had to suffer thru ivf medications, headaches n constipation.

isnt it hard enough that i had to cancel all forms of my gym exercise while ivf meds made me sick then placenta previa could move my placenta at any time.

isnt it hard enough that i have had to mentally prepare myself for steroid shots.

now i have fkn gestational diabetes!.

my only way of thinking is this bubba is giving me a taste of ALL pregnancy symptoms because we keep saying its going to be the only one.

frustrated-placenta previa means no exercise but GD states 1/2 hr moderate exercise each day!

have put on 6kgs max since start of ivf…..and repeatedly told how small my bump is for 26 weeks But concerned about baby being too big (measuring 50th percentile in weight)

Wheres the middle ground? 

F@ck this sh!t!!!!!!!!!!



26wks n steroid shots

Yep tomorrow i have my first steroid shot in case Ranga B decides to make an early appearance then back to the drs Friday for the 2nd lot exactly 24hrs later. I havent had any problems so far and feeling blessed still-lotsa nanny naps which i will miss when school goes back next week. My Ranga partner has two days off work to ferry me the hour long trip each way to the dr. Also get the gestational diabetes results tomorrow too. (Don’t get me started on THAT!) not worried about either issues tomorrow-if its what i have to do, its what i will do! Nothing NOTHING compares to the ivf roundabout and medication!

Have decided i will finish work earlier….now just to decide when to tell my students as i have some students who totally dont cope with change.
