Anyone else this weird lol(3 Posts)
I’m not starting my first ivf cycle till next year after seeing our consultant last week.
Been out shopping today for home ware and picked up a cute little bunny teddy to put away.
Am I mental? Am I setting myself up for complete devastation?
I’ve never bought anything in the past 6-7 years of ttc but now I actually know we’re going to give ivf a good go, it’s put a little hope in my heart.
I won’t buy anything else I just saw it and something inside told me to just get it
@Rspu1384 hi OP I think it's personal preference. I've heard of other people doing it too, it's completely up to you and what you want to do. I think you just have to look at it as if this doesn't work how will you feel about it? I get tempted all the time, it helps me keep in mind what all this is heading towards. I wish you all the luck on your journey too and if buying a teddy makes you feel better then why not?
I’m going into thinking it’s just like a sort of practice run as I don’t think we will be lucky enough for it to work first time.
I think it’s because I now have a bit of hope of me and oh having a child on the future. It’s took us nearly 2 years just to see a consultant and we were expecting to hear the worst ( wouldn’t be able to have any children ivf no point) we have mfi and my husband was extremely stressed and wouldn’t talk about it. He’s now been opening up and wants to talk about the ivf and it just seems like a positive now. I feel mental to be honest 😅 Thankyou for your reply. I won’t be going overboard and buying baby clothes it’s just the little teddy stood out to me x
