My story is that I have been with my husband for 12 years and got married 2 years ago in June 2014. We started trying for a baby straight away. I fell pregnant in August 2014, we were so so happy. We went to a friends wedding mid-September and I started bleeding and left the wedding to go straight to A&E. They tried doing scans but said that I needed to have an internal scan on Monday. That weekend was so long, not knowing what was going to happen.
That Monday, I went to have the scan and they told me and my husband that I was having an ectopic pregnancy. Within three hours of the scan, I was being wheeled down for surgery to have my tube removed.
It was the worse feeling ever, so I had the symptoms of being pregnant as it took weeks for my hormones to drop down and in a lot of physical and mental pain.
My husband and I go to our local cerm as they have the butterfly garden. Its were ectopic, miscarried and still born babies can be put the rest. Our little one is there too.
We have been trying every trick in the book, every old wife's tale and for some reason we haven't been able to fall since. Our doctor has now put us forward for the IVF, after going through all the usual test to back sure we are both in working order and we are. Where we lived we get one try with fresh and if you are unsuccessful and you have eggs frozen from the fresh batch one other try on NHS. I feel this still puts a lot of pressure on us to hope that it works.
Pretty much all our friends and family have fallen pregnant and we are so ready to bring a child into our lives but its just not happening.
I am scared and nervous about IVF and would appreciate any words of support, guidance and experiences that anyone has.
I will update this with my experiences as I go through this next part of our journey to bring a little bundle of joy into our lives.
Thank you for reading.
