Hi ladies,

Well we had our appointment at the subfertility unit and it seems that DP's swimmers aren't as good as they should be in that there's isn't an awful lot of them but they have good mobility. They seem to think the route for us will be ivf. I need to get my bmi to below 30 and as I have pcos he has put me on metformin - not so good side effects but at least the weight is starting to come off !! We have to go back on 5th October.

My question is has anyone any idea how long the nhs waiting list is ? I was so overwhelmed at the appointment I forgot to ask the most important question of all !!!

Hope everyone is ok and baby dust to all.

Thanks

Hi Rach,

I don't know anything about pcos, but I'm pleased that you're getting underway.  Its a good feeling to think that something is happening.

On an aside, I think they must have changed the age limit, as I'm in the east riding, and had our treatment at 37.

Our first appt with the doctor in the clinic was on 1st sept last year, we had started treatment by mid november.   
From seeing the local doctor in Feb, it took until Sept to see the ivf doctor, but OH had to go through rounds of tests, and then they messed us about with appts so we lost about 8 weeks. 
But from the first appt at Hull clinic, it was only 2.5months to starting treatment (going on 1 month of pill in my case.)  Down reg started 1 month after that (mid december.)  To be honest i don't think it can go much quicker than that, as they had to do bloods etc, but once we had seen the doc, it all just started to flow quite quick.  This was only last year, but I've no idea how quick things are going through now.

Hope this helps!!

Hi Rach,  Congrats on your wedding, I'm pleased that you had a lovely day.  I'm so sorry to read about twin 1, but over the moon about twin 2.  Its wonderful to see them kicking and wriggling about!  Keep strong for your little fighter!

Hi Yogvic,  happy birthday to Thomas and Luke.  I keep seeing your pics, and they are absolutely gorgeous.  What an amazing year for you all!!

tell me about it!  :)
sometimes it can't go fast enough and I'm thinking roll on Jan, then others I just want it all to slow down, as I'm loving every minute.

Gonna be a hectic few months though, and they'll just fly by, as we're moving house in two months, then its xmas, so these next few months will just whiz by as we won't have time to stop for breath!

How are you Caz?

Thanks so much for the info - can't believe how quick it was - we were hoping for next year but it seems it may be earlier - fingers crossed !! Just hope I can get the weight off - bmi was 30.3 today and I've still got three weeks before the dreaded weigh in !

Feel like I'm going loopy at the moment - can't concentrate on anything - it's in-between the appointments that does me in. Plus everyone seems to be pregnant at the moment - so annoying !!

Hugs to you all
