Today we met with our consultant after having a bit of a moan after our last visit! He went through all our details and my surgery from earlier this year. I had a previous surgery 5 years ago to remove a cyst turns out quite a bit was taken away so I only have a pea sized right ovary which I had never been told about! But we discussed IVF and we will be given on round funded through the NHS so today we took the first step and signed the funding form. We will then need to go to Oxford to sign the next lot of paperwork and then we can get started. We are going on Honeymoom in Nov so we have thought that perhaps waiting till Dec so I don't think it's wise to start now! It would be good to understand from you all how you coped with the first part of the stage and how you balanced work with everything else! I am really pleased with getting to this stage and it goes to show you have to fight for what you want and who you want to be seen by as its your care and the NHS provide us with a service!!x
