#SENSITIVE POST# another ivf miracle: our lockdown baby has arrived!


Sorry to anyone who this may upset, but I know there are a lot of women who find positive outcome stories really helpful (like I did).

Our little lockdown, ivf, donor sperm, hypermesis Gravidarum baby arrived 2 days early on 1st April at 8.15pm weighing 7lb 3oz. We have named him Reuben and are calling him Reu for short. After years ttc, going through the ivf process twice and then having a difficult pregnancy, I was very fortunate enough to be blessed with a fairly straight forward birth.

We are all Safely snuggled at home and although very tired, we are completely over the moon and feel so much in love with him already. To us he is absolutely perfect and simply can not take our eyes off him.

I know t’s difficult times right now and I some treatments are being postponed which is a disappointment. Whilst frustrating, It may be for the best as Stress of any kind will not help you get successful results. Please know that whilst conception difficulties are likely to remain, the lockdown will end and clinics and services will reopen it’s doors at a time it is safe and giving you the best chance of success. Even better we will all be reunited with our loved ones again and Babies like Reu can finally meet his grandparents!

Thank you to everyone for all your much appreciated advice and emotional support over the years you truly are wonderful people! I want to continue to support those like others did me so if you have any questions about ivf or using donor sperm please send me a message. Keep fighting warriors and remember you are strong and you can do this!

Stop watching the news and stay home. I was worried I wasn’t going to go into labour due to stress so I made decision not to watch the news or read negative stories on social media. Do your best to avoid any stress at all costs. Best of luck xx
