The Road to IVF


Where do I start…

I am due on tomorrow. I had a BFN this morning, and yesterday morning, and the day before and the one before that… *cough* yes, I am clearly nuts. Lesson learnt, don’t do early tests!

I have to say that I was ok, I mean I was disappointed, but I was ok, I think if it got to the 3/4th time, and I was still getting BFNs then I would start to freak out.

This morning, we had our consultation with the consultant and I have to say to my utter shock and dismay, we have been accepted for IVF. I mean I really did not expect that. I thought that we would have a huge fight on our hands, have to battle to get IVF from the NHS, I thought they would say no. But they didn’t.

They said YES… YES YES YES



We went into the appointment and they talked us through the risks and chance of success. Which they put at around 40% (but I figure I am young… so it may be higher??)

Then he just said, so how do you want to proceed, and I was like…

“er… pardon?”

he said “well, are you happy to proceed with IVF?” As if it was our choice?

I was like “ER YEAH!!”

So I have to have my tubes checked, and go back in two months, with the scan, and then they will refer us to any clinic we want, I was like the one with the shortest waiting times please.

and that was that!

We are in the system and on the way to IVF… I can’t believe it.

I am going to ride this IVF high for a little while, until I realise how many drugs and hormones I am going to have to take!!
