I have really held off doing this as I personally found success stories quite difficult. However I know that many people find them encouraging, so here goes.
We are so lucky and excited to learn that all is well with our baby. We have had a few scans now and the last one at 13 weeks showed that all was well (long may it continue). I feel so blessed yet also feel sad that so many of you, including some of my good friends, are still waiting for your good news. I hope this comes soon for you all.
I am 40 in a few months and was starting to lose hope that getting pregnant with my own eggs would be possible. But here we are, luckily and amazingly, after our second round of ivf.
I am 14 weeks tomorrow and we are having a little boy! I feel especially blessed as this time last year I was going through my first miscarriage. Last year, feeling so miserable and devastated, I couldn’t imagine that I would be writing this. I am so grateful to the staff at the Lister for making this possible and for helping us to complete our family.
Wishing you all lots of strength and luck, whatever stage you are at xxx
