The Conception Diaries #29 – Alicante Part One

The Conception Diaries #29 – Alicante Part One

Welcome to the twenty ninth vlog in my series ‘The Conception Diaries’ and Alicante Part One. If you would like to catch up with what has happened so far, you can find the rest of the vlogs over on my YouTube channel.

If you follow me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, then you will know that we came home from Alicante on Wednesday following our egg donation treatment and embryo transfer thanks to IVF Spain. This took place on Wednesday. 

This weekend the Fertility Show takes place in London. It is there that we have found a majority of the information we have needed on this journey (some great, some not so much!) and I would really recommend a visit if you are struggling to conceive. IVF Spain are exhibiting and one of their specialists is speaking – so do pay them a visit and say hi from me! On top of that, Ross and I helped with some recordings for one of their Q & A booths which we hope will be of help to those with unanswered questions and also, look out for the 3rd November edition of Fertility Road magazine as Ross has written a great article for them.

Alicante Part One

This vlog was recorded on October 28th from our hotel balcony in Alicante, ready for our visit to IVF Spain. I explain how the medication protocol has affected me, the thoughts of the clinic following the first round of medication, how the second round has gone – and how rubbish I have felt – and details of both the first and second scans to measure the lining of my womb in readiness for the transfer. I also explain how awful the second scan was and why it affected me so much. 

Thank you for watching xx

    Sometimes it really does seem like the health services in this country just don’t really give a stuff about our feelings and our needs around health and wellbeing which is massively ironic. Glad to know that your fertility nurse is so supportive though – not everyone should be tarred with the same brush! I’ve also got everything crossed for you here too! Xx #thetruthabout

    That was really insensitive of them, I’m sorry to hear they didn’t think. Now you’ve made the point, hopefully they will treat others better in the future. Everything still crossed for you here xx
