No, it's not because her pregnancy test has come back as positive because she is still in her 2ww, and hasnt done it so far. Its only been one week since her embryo transfer, and while she is hopeful and optimistic, she's not sure whether the cycle is going to work or not.

Interestingly, even if the cycle fails, she will continue smiling, because she's had such a great experience during her IVF treatment.

Her doctor has been open and transparent, and has shared information with her throughout the cycle. The team has been respectful, has treated her like an intelligent adult.

They have shown her the follicles and the uterus during her ultrasound scans, and she has been given photos of her blastocysts, so that she has peace of mind that she has received top quality medical care.

She understands that the outcome of any IVF cycle is neither in her hands , nor in her doctor's, because implantation is a biological process which no one can control. However, she is confident that because she's received good quality medical care, she has done everything humanly possible, and this gives her enormous peace of mind.

If you want to smile during your IVF cycle as well, please make sure that you are well informed and well prepared !
