Hello everyone

I know these posts aren’t always the best for all of us to see. So please stop here if this is too painful a post to read.

*******

I made a lot of friends on here who have supported me no end on our 7 year journey to have our family and I loved seeing news of their special arrivals when their time finally came. I still can’t believe we are in this position to be able to say that our family has been made. After our 4th IVF cycle , this time using an egg donor, we welcomed our amazing wee boy Lewis to the world at 37 + 6 on Jan 5th. After a stint back in hospital to treat some jaundice, baby is now doing well thankfully.

I am incredibly grateful for the support I received from you all over the years. This journey is one of the hardest things I’ve endured in my life and I am hoping now it’s paved the way to the happiest as we enjoy our new baby boy. Please please keep fighting!! No matter the dark times, they make the good even more special. Our son is the most precious thing in the world to us and the love he has already received from friends and family in the first 7 days of his life is the best feeling ever.

I never in a million years thought we’d be given our rainbow baby. I am still in shock to be honest.

Stay strong you warriors. Much love, always, Lx

I can't wait and almost too scared to dare hope. But there is nothing to be done but hope and stay positive. Overall I feel like I am in a dream world, although I feel my body is having me in practice for when junior arrives as I haven't had a full nights sleep since before transfer ha ha.

Those feelings are all natural, I was the same - and you are right it uses less energy to stay positive than to feel negative. The sleepless nights are very real 😂 with hindsight I appreciated the practice my body gave me! 😃

Oh bless! I am dreading ours but Lewis so far doesn’t even register when blood is being taken 😃 hoping that bodes well for his jags 🤞🏼x

Esmae was like that..she had to have blood taken for jaundice at 5 days old and she didn't budge she just slept so I thought she wouldn't be to bad today but she is more aware of things now and she held her breath and cried her little eyes out. Awful but will be worth it. Her father can take her to next lot tho haha fingers crossed he will be ok. It's not pleasant but for the best.

How heavy was Lewis? X

Oh the wee lamb!! I expect the same at this side then, thanks for the heads up 😂

Lewis was 7lb 1oz, he was a couple weeks early but was the 95% percentile so predicted to be big, which I guess he was considering still 2 weeks to go. He is quite long though. We needed forceps as my blood pressure went sky high during labour. And a very long labour with the induction. Not a pleasant experience overall I have to say but one id repeat tomorrow to have my little one xx

Sound similar to my experience so I feel for you but like you said totally worth it. Induction for me aswell 2 weeks early due to her size and she is also very long. 60cm. Make sure you rest to recover well and welcome to motherhood 😘 xx

Hi L, sounds like you have been on a really tough journey and so glad it's worked for you. I have had endometriosis for 10 years and we started trying for a baby two years ago. My tubes are clear but I think it maybe the endo stopping something. They are recommending we start IVF in few months but I m quite low in myself at the moment. Did they say if your miscarriages had been caused by the endo? We have asked if having the endo inside of me can decrease the chances of it working and can't get a clear answer from the consultants. Jules

So sorry endo has robbed you for so long. Mine was in a few places but the critical thing for me was that it was on my ovaries- I am convinced now that this affected my egg production and quality, but no one has ever said as much to me! Have you had any laparoscopies/ endo removed? xx
