Much earlier than we all thought too!Thought I would atleast have a treatment free birthday this year, but I can’t moan! 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!”

Change of plan…

Sooooooooooo,surgical sperm retrieval didn’t happen. Here’s to yet another 2 steps back. I will try to keep this as simple as possible, as it’s quite a long story. But basically, Will rang the clinic a few days before the procedure date to check what time he needed to be there for. He had also beenContinue reading “Change of plan…”

HAPPY NEW YEAR

It’s 2020, finally! What an awful year 2019 was, every step forward we took came 2 steps back. Anyway, I know I’ve been quiet with this blog since my last post.

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. I just don’t know if I can take another fail, and I don’t know what we will do about affording treatment if this hasn’t worked. I went to the bathroom and doneContinue reading “Test Day no.3”

Surviving the 2ww

This part never gets any easier! It honestly feels like torture, that is the best way I can decribe it. You go through every single emotion through this time. I could go from feeling really positive, excited and happy to negative, anxious, upset and angry in a few hours. Feeling vulnerable, because your happiness dependsContinue reading “Surviving the 2ww”

PRAYING FOR 3RD TIME LUCKY!!! We had our second scan on August 16th which comfirmed the lining of my womb was thick enough for transfer. August 23rd, we arrived at the clinic for around 11am. Yet again, I had gone over the top with the water and my bladder was full. to. the. brim. IContinue reading “Embryo transfer no.3”

Onto our 3rd and final funded cycle

Bloody hell. This is scary stuff. If it doesn’t work this time around, we have to pay. A LOT of money. Don’t get me wrong, we both feel incredibly lucky to of had 3 cycles funded to us, seeing as it all depends on where you live as to how many cycles are funded toContinue reading “Onto our 3rd and final funded cycle”
