Morning team, hanging on in there? Good!! Still have AF pains and am fighting with myself to IGNORE them and think they're not associated with actual AF. Got to go to a birthday lunch today from work (the pregnant one!) which will be gross I'm sure but I'll keep smiling as usual.<br><br>I just so wi...

HAVE U PAID FOR YOUR IVF, IF YES HOW MUCH?

Hi Pat. Our treatment this time was £2750 for ICSI, plus £300 for one years storage of 3 embryos, plus £770 for the drugs.<br><br>Horrible isnt it? Its hard to keep finding such huge chunks of money and obviously it's the cash that limits how many times you can do it, and not to forget there are som...

Thanks Trace - gonna go home for lunch and cuddle Pedro (my baby chick). I know there's a good chance of it working and I'm determined to stay sane and positive. I don't have to tell you of course that the whole thing drives you up the wall.<br><br>Lots of Love - hope you're well. Jo.XX

Hi Sue .... gosh what shocking news for you. I can imagine you must be absolutely gutted and horrified. I know you'll think that this squashes your chances of a baby but as you know there are more avenues for assistance with this type of problem than ever before. I'm no medical expert I just wanted ...

Wouldn't it be great if we could all get together and sit in a circle (like an AA meeting) and scream about our frustrations and how unfair this all is and have a good cry ??<br><br>I am generally good at controlling my emotions to the point of ridic...
