The best news we could have dreamed of!

Had the best news a few weeks before Christmas - a positive pregnancy test! Had failed round of ivf in September and were told by our fertility consultant that the chances of conceiving naturally were extremely low and they recommended a round of icsi (which we'd have to fund ourselves as only get one round on bhs in n. Ireland). So we knew we had a rough ride ahead, emotionally and financially but decided to not even think about it until after Christmas. 2 weeks befor Christmas I just felt different and decided to do a test, it was positive - as were the 6 others that I took! I got it confirmed with my doctor a few days later and we've just had our 10 week scan!!!! So, so happy :)

    You were lucky to get a 10 week scan, I have to arrange that privately and waiting for the big 12 week nuchal scan. Anyway, lovely happy news. How are you feeling?

    I have been extremely sick, hospitalised with hyperemisis gravidarum, needs drips etc. But feeling much better now, its just normal morning sickness now.

    Look after yourself. Congrats x

  • Thanks! Yeah in n. Ireland they've changed it now to scans at 10, 20 and 30 wks. All the best in your pregnancy :)

  • Ah I see, great. Northern Ireland, lovely with possibly the loveliest people there are..
