Getting closer to my first IVF cycle

I can't believe this is happening but the NHS subfertility clinic has just confirmed that the funding for a fresh+frozen IVF cycle has been approved and that all the paperwork will be sent to our chosen IVF clinic this afternoon.

I am in a kind of total choc. Considering that one of my tubes was close and the other badly damaged since 2006 (but I discovered it only in May 2018) this is the closest I have ever been to a pregnancy. I can't believe it.

I am still a bit on denial: everyone in the subfertility clinic has prepared us for a negative answer and was ready to support us for an appealing :) Quite the opposite, life is full of surprises, not all bad it seems :)

Hope that the IVF clinic will be as fast, I can't wait to start to inject myself as a mass-production chicken!

It is, and it is still unbelievable (I don't know how many time I have been repeating this). I hope this is not just a dream! Thanks for your wishes!

Thanks a lot! Mostly this is my only hope and it is already a big improvement on my current condition. Now, I am completely sterile (I miss both tubes) but the IVF gives me a small possibility, so still better than zero (or zero, but at least I can say to myself that I tried)

Good luck, honey! Just don't lose hope, alright? You can do this, I'm sure of it. Don't overly expect things, please. Be open to all scenarios. And, at the same time hope for the best. Fingers crossed, you can do this!

I will try to keep my hopes high (well, anything is as good as my zero chances of conceiving naturally ;) ) but I know that the success rate for my age/issue range from 15% to 35% so two failures out of three in the best case scenario.

This is great news. Welcome to the club, haha. I hope your stay is short and successful. You can do this, honey. Just remember to take it easy. Remember, that it can still take a few more attempts. Good luck, I hope it happens in the first one!
