My name is Megan and my partner is hopefully 3w2d pregnant today. This is our first IVF cycle after 3 attempts using IUI.
I am completely over the moon about the possibility of becoming a mother but then I get this overwhelming feeling of how are we going to cope. You think about money, work, trying to keep the house clean, will we have everything we need for the baby, the list goes on and on. I try not to let it take hold of me but its really hard. Also I am trying to be there for my partner. I'm trying to keep the house clean, get the washing done and basically try not to do anything that going to annoy her cause right now she is on a short fuse (so many hormones with IVF) Even with trying my hardest I still feel like im not doing the right thing. How do I cope with the hormones? Then I feel guilty cause I just need to suck it up because I'm not the one who is having their body completely messed with.
This was a lot harder to write down than I thought so it probably makes no sense.
I need your advice smile
