Morning all, how're we doing?
I didn't get back on yesterday so will pick up some personals:
Enjayee - thanks for your recs re food with folate - H is the food organiser in the house but I can sneakily plan some meals with that type of food in without him being too suspicious!
Sally - any sign of a high on the OPK yet?
Luna - NTNP sounds like a good idea; best of luck with the weight loss - we have a pinned thread for weight loss if you're interested in joining us? And yes, I might just take you up on that offer of a slap for my H :-)
AFM - Got a letter from the NHS telling me that they were unable to book an appointment for me and I will hear from the clinic itself in the next week or so. I think it's going to be them telling me there is nothing they can do and to just wait it out. H has decided he will get an appointment with the Doc to do a testosterone test as he thinks that's why his count is low! (Nothing to do with stress, bad diet or no exercise of course!)
Hello to all who follow x

Will delete mine!
Hope everyone's doing ok this morning. I started my injections again last night - I feel a mix between positive and hopeless about it. Mostly positive, but I am terrified again. Still - yoga is really helping me with that. Every time I feel negativity or jealousy I focus on my breathing. It sounds really hippy (which is SO not me) but when I inhale I think about all the positive thoughts I'm bringing in i.e. I am doing everything I can and on the exhale I think about the negative thoughts leaving me i.e. I don't deserve this. This morning I had a pang of hopelessness but 20 seconds of focusing on that breathing helped bring me back to zen, or whatever the hell it's called, haha. Gonna practice my poses tonight, got up too late this morning!

Tayto - any reason why the NHS won't give you an appointment? How frustrating for you :-(

Morning Enjayee - Lots of vibes for this cycle for you - hope the yoga helps as well. It doesn't sound hippy btw, I've found the yoga breath helps a lot when trying to relax or go to sleep at night.
I'm not sure re my appointment yet - it could be just that they can't guarantee one within the 18 weeks constitution mandate. My issue though is that H is waiting to talk to a fertility specialist about what he can do to help improve things yet this appointment was just for me for the gynae clinic which I don't think is of much use until we can work through H's problems. I've told H to make the app with the doc anyway and then we might go to a private clinic about H's results alone. I'm just a bit confused!

Tayto- Hmm really strange about your letter! I hope it's just they can't guarantee one within the 18 weeks! - Hopefully H going to see the consultant will make him realise that he can change his sperm count! Fingers crossed for you!
Enjayee - Fingers crossed for your cycle i hope the increase in drugs works! Not done yoga myself but if it works who cares if it looks hippy like!
AFM nothing to report had a lovely weekend away in Cumbria! Would deff recommend it! It's soooo beautiful! Just not loving the washing! (Don't think my weightloss will be very good this week haha!)

Thanks CC! Glad to hear Cumbria was nice - might go there myself actually - I never really travel around the UK. That's one thing I really hate about being away for the weekend is all the washing and ironing to do when we get back. Is the weather nice where you are? It's a wee bit sunny here but we are all stuck indoors, booo!

Tayto- That's what we are doing visiting the UK (I hate leaving Eric haha!) We have done Nottingham, Now Cumbria and off to Mid Wales in June! It's been lovely too see such beautiful places in this country! (We had lovely weather too which helps lol!) Yes the sun is shining here but it's not that hot!
Off out for lunch with my parents before they go back to Cornwall!

Ahh yes of course - makes sense to go somewhere you can easily take Eric. Had you a nice lunch with your folks?
Just back from the Dentist - didn't really leave enough time to have lunch before the appointment so now I'm starving! I had my gum cut in preparation for the crown that goes in on top of the implant I had done earlier this year so I'm afraid to eat and my mouth is still numb so would feel weird. I'm such an idiot!

Had a lovely few days in Jersey. Shame it was a bit cold expect for the day we left!! Anyway was good to get away for a few days.
TTC wise phoned surgery and referral letter for private clinic should be ready tomorrow. Plan to collect it and forward on myself. That way I know it's been received.
Got my h some vitamins to take. I'm already taking folic acid. Not sure if should be taking anything else.....
