I think I have the plague

Hey guys! Just a quick update to let you know I’m still here. Lots is happening and there’s lots to update you on – particularly about my next IVF cycle and my mother-in-law (more drama!).

Unfortunately I’ve been super sick for the last week and a half. I had whooping cough about 3 years ago which was awful, and according to my fertility blood tests I’m now immune to it. But let me tell you…this feels a whole lot like I’ve got whooping cough again! I cough pretty much all day and all night, I can hardly breathe, I cough until I vomit, I have burning fevers, badly swollen glands in my neck, fatigue, dizziness. This is just……awful.

My doctor gave me antibiotics a week ago but the sickness has actually worsened since then so I’m headed back to the clinic again tomorrow to get some blood tests done to try and get to the bottom of my illness. I can’t go on like this!

I really want to log on here and post a few huge blog updates but I feel sick if I stare at the laptop/ipad screen for too long. I hope you guys are all doing well. When I’m feeling better I’ll try to read all of your blog posts and see what you’ve been up to.

Don’t forget about me!!!

  1. Hey Sadie,

    Just thought I would let you know that I came across your blog a few days ago and have literally been reading it back to front for a few days. It’s beautifully written and so insightful and delicate. I feel like I know you so well now! I won’t patronise you and say I can relate to exactly what you are going through because I am not in the same situation, but I think you have given me an insight into what it is really like to struggle with infertility by pouring your heart out. Thanks for being so honest and open. I can’t wait for more updates! I really hope you feel better soon, Lots of love, Flo

    • Hi Flo, thank you so much for your comment and sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Your words really touched me and you have no idea how nice it was to hear that my blog is appreciated. Sometimes I think it’s hard pouring my heart out knowing people might not like what I’ve got to say. But I try very hard to be open and honest and hold nothing back so that others can understand exactly what I’m going through, and also so that I can reflect on these tough years later in life and hopefully feel proud that I was able to make it through.

  2. I just wanted you to know that I too stumbled across your blog a bit ago. Your words are awesome and it’s so nice to know that we are not alone on this journey! I also wanted you to know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award! Here is the link so that you can kinda see what it is if you are as unfamiliar as I was! ๐Ÿ™‚ http://lovemarriagestillnobabycarriage.wordpress.com/2013/09/15/a-liebster-award-me/

    Thank you again for your words!!
