Access fertility price plan

When it comes to paying for fertility treatment, it’s obviously not cheap, and no matter how much you shop around you’re not going to find anything that fits within your budget unless you’re lucky enough to be well off financially.

Test Day no.3

September 3rd, we woke up super early again, around 5:30am ish. SO nervous! My heart began racing the second I opened my eyes.

Official test day!

June 24th, our official test day! God we were sooo nervous to test this time. I hadn’t done an early test so had no idea what to expect. We just wished for 2 clear lines on the pregnancy test!

Back to the 2ww

This time around I was feeling much more relaxed! I had the mindset of, what will be will be and there is nothing I can say or do that can change what the outcome will be. We just need to wait and see, and I didn’t want to feel anxious and stressed throughout the wholeContinue reading “Back to the 2ww”
