Hello lovely ladies,
I'm back after a lovely Christmas break as I will shortly be embarking on my IVF journey - at last!
For anyone who isn't familiar with me (I've noticed lots of new names - Hi!), I've been trying to get pregnant for almost 3 years; our 'diagnosis' is unexplained. We had 3 cycles of IUI, which didn't work and I also tried clomid for a short time.
We were due to start IVF this month but (Top Tip) we were informed by a friend that we could have our 1 NHS-funded cycle at a private clinic and have been awaiting the referral. Well, today is that day. We have our consultation on 13th February!
The clinic will do another semen assessment on my partner which is far more in-depth than what he has had previously. I will have a 3D Transvaginal antral follicle count scan, which I've never had before (I'm yet to google exactly what information this gives but I think I have a good idea!). These are performed on the same day and we get the results back within the hour! I guess the consultant will discuss our results with us, hopefully there's nothing bad to discuss, and I suppose we'll find out what protocol we're on and when we can start! I'm so ruddy scared and excited!
We go on holiday on 3rd March for a week so we won't start until we are back but it feels good to know that things are progressing.
Anyway, that's enough waffling!
Hope you're all well xx
