What happened between 7 and 9 weeks

Well obviously I worried the whole time and had times where I convinced myself the twins weren’t alive anymore.

The clinicContinue reading “7 week scan!”

I had a phone call on May 14th from clinic to ask what cycle day I was on, I was on day 20. As treatment for a fresh cycle starts on day 21, theyContinue reading “Treatment has commenced!”

Semen Analysis RESULTS

Carrying on from my previous post, as you know Will had another semen analysis done to check where his sperm count is at after being on these medications that are not at all good for sperm count or their ability to fertilise an egg. Well obviously we were expecting less than his latest count ofContinue reading “Semen Analysis RESULTS”
