Thank you to those who have reached out, worried that I’ve dropped off the planet! It’s been about 6 weeks since my last post and I am fine, I just don’t have a lot to post about really.
Down regulation was fine and my baseline scan went well. I started stims on Tuesday so today is day 4. I did 300iu for the first 3 days and tonight I drop down to 225. My first scan is on Monday and I’m both excited and nervous as hell about whether my follicles are going to do anything this time.
The family I have been nannying/babysitting for over the last 2.5 years told me that they are moving away at the end of this month. While I knew that they would be moving, the date was brought forward from the end of this year so it’s come around very suddenly. I’m sad to see them go, particularly the little girl. I’m also sad at the loss of a lot of money each month! I’ve been trying to find a new family but I’ve not clicked with anyone like I did with this one.
So I’ve been on the hunt for a part-time job! Nothing has come up yet, but I’ve signed up with Amazon Flex to do some ad-hoc deliveries for them. At £15 an hour and being able to sign up for delivery slots whenever I’m available. It should help pay the IVF bills while I’m looking for more stable work. Ideally I want a part-time, weekdays only job where I meet other colleagues and make friends lol. But delivering will do for now. I’m trying to buy a particular house and need an annual salary of £45,000 to get the mortgage for it, so that’s my goal. Every little helps!
