ivf one year today!

Post by Quita » Tue Mar 18, 2008 5:04 pm

Hi guys,

One year a go today I was a right emotional mess. I was in the middle of my one and only go of IVF on the NHS at the Esperance Hospital In Eastbourne England.

I was terrified because although the hospital were fantastic with me, everything else had fail and I didn't know if we would be able to raise the money for another go. Plus by now I had found out I hadn't produced enough folicals only 5 reasonable good ones and two more smallish ones. The injections had hurt and my confidence was at an all time low.

March 17th was my ET and I found out that out of the 7, 6 had been removed and 5 had fertilised 2 to a B+ standard. They asked me how many I wanted put back in and I said both - well you do don't you! I mean whats the chance of having twins?

So now I was on the two week wait......and I found this amazing site which allowed me to rant and rave and I felt like women all over the world were holding my hand and sending me their possitive vibes.

I was no longer alone.

I had break through bleeding and thought the world was going to end but I was told and over and over not to give up hope.

So on day twelve I could wait no longer and did a test......and there was my faint possitive.

OH my God!!!!!

Eight weeks later I went for my first scan and there was the best sight ever, not one but two blinking lights on the screen.

My babies!!!

Yesterday Pepe and Josefina were five months exactly and I love them more every day.

IVF was the best thing I have ever done in my life and worth every oz of pain, fear and waiting.

So good luck to you. Try and stay strong and when you don't feel strong come and shout at us. It will probably be the hardest thing you will ever have to do. But I hope for you, it will also be the most rewarding.

Love to you all and happy birthday twinny beans.
