Hi ladies

So we had our 12 week scan today (well Im actually 12+2) & everything was looking fab! Very active baby and all measuring as it should. I wanted to share to those of you struggling or starting your journey to never give up hope! Some of you ladies know my story but a lot don't. To keep it short & simple I was diagnosed last year at 27 yrs old with a rare form of cancer. I have to have extensive surgery which will include the removal of a number of organs including uterus & ovaries. I made the choice to hold off on surgery in the hope we could concieve & although a hard choice to make (in fact the hardest ever) after today Im so glad I did! I will still need this surgery as soon as they can do it but I will have now not only my life to fight for but the life of our baby too- keep on believing it will happen!! X

I have an embryo frozen but if we don't get chance to use it before surgery I would need a surrogate so we have decided that if we only have this one then that's more than ok with us both x
