Spudlin, best of luck. I'm waiting for my funding to come through then hopefully we'll be doing ivf at MF too. I'm super excited and impatient! I'm also starting slimming world tonight. I'm going to go shopping for stuff later. Do you find it easy? It looks ok to me, much better than all that weighing of things.
Manchester fertility are really good too, I'd definitely agree. We've had all our treatment there so far. It didn't work for us but we're still happy. X

    Ladies, no one has mentioned anything to me about my bmi and I did put it on my self referral. We are private and the general consensus seems to be that it is an NHS requirement for funding.

    I find slimming world really easy. I was more strict at first, but still managed to have a treat every day. Not being a big drinker certainly helps as that uses up lots of syns.

    I have not followed it religiously on holiday or at Christmas, but still didn't put loads back on and have easily shifted it again straight away.

    Some days at work I find it frustrating cos we get drug reps in a lot who bring lunches with lots of naughties. I just avoid the staff room  ;D If I have a naughty at work I can't have another after my tea and I look forward to this lol.

    I am just waiting for all my tests to be completed by my GP before I can arrange our first consultation. I am impatient and I'm sure they would have been quicker if Manchester fertility had done them, but it is saving us over 500 having them done on the NHS and we are fortunate to have a great GP, who has agreed to do them knowing we are private IVF patients.

    Spoke to MFS yesterday and have arranged our first consult for the 17th April  :P

    They said it is fine to go ahead with appointment as we are only waiting for a couple of blood tests to come back and for me to have a scan. i spoke to the scan dept at my local hosp yesterday who said it should be within the next couple of weeks.

    Had my scan today prior to my appt and was shocked to find out that I have a backward tilted womb and a fibroid. Neither of which have ever been brought up before and I have had so many scans and tests over the last 2 years including a hycosy!!

    Just hoping it doesn't affect things. He did say a small fibroid??

    I emailed Mfs just to see if there is anything else I need to do prior to my appointment, in light of today's findings  :-\

    Had our initial consult last Thursday. Lovely staff. I needed a repeat amh cos the nhs one only shows a range and not a specific figure, which is fair enough and they wanted a repeat scan to check on location of the fibroids and follicle count and to check that the cyst was going away.

    Bloods done there and then and scan the next morning. Going back for our follow up a week tomorrow (have to wait for blood result to come back). Scan was positive, fibroids don't appear to be an issue, cyst is reducing and had good follicle count. Sonographer said she would be happy if it was her scan, which I found reassuring.

    Feeling a bit more positive now and hopefully we will get the go ahead to start when we go next week  :)
