She wrote: ‘Unfortunately the evening did not go as planned and I have another cyst on one of my ovaries.
“Since the injections I have to administer as part of my fertility treatment are mostly estrogen – rather than stimulating the ovarian follicles which is what we want to happen – it will instead mostly end up feeding the cyst and the treatment will be wasted.”
‘Naturally I’m a bit disappointed and spent most of yesterday in tears and just feeling so tired – it was as if someone had let all the air out of a balloon.
“I am naturally a little disappointed,” she wrote about her experience so that others would see that many women go through the same thing
“But I guess it was just the anxiety and nervous energy leaving my body and making me feel like a human raisin.”
She continued, ‘This is very common, and as I’m beginning to learn, these journeys are often not linear and there can be a lot of ups and downs for me as I go along.
So I need to set myself up for that and be thankful that I’m in a position to have options – which I really am.
I want more women to know that it is not easy for many of us. ..and you are not alone. No matter how you feel.
“I made peace with this today – I’m going back to work, I’m going to focus on other things and I’m going to try again next month ♥️.”
Erkan got down on one knee inebruary last year, and the couple was planning a wedding in 2024.
Speaking of upcoming nuptials, Vicki said at the end of last year: “And I can’t believe in a few days I’ll be able to say – we’re getting married next year, Arghhhhhh!!! Our next chapter will be our most exciting yet.

Egg freezing means undergoing IVF, which usually takes two to three weeks.
This includes taking medications to increase egg production, as well as to help the eggs mature.
Once the eggs are ready, the women are placed under general anesthesia while they are collected – usually around 15 eggs, although this is not always possible for women with low reserves.
Next, a freezing solution is added to the eggs to protect them, which are then frozen and stored in tanks of liquid nitrogen.
When the woman is ready to use the eggs, they are thawed and the sperm of the survivors are injected.
