My partner and I have been trying for a baby for almost 3 years now.  Some months ago we found out that he has very low sperm count, low mobility and bad morphology too so we have had several appointments with the doctor and are now ready to start IVF.  I need to phone the nurse on day 21 of my  next cycle, so that would be beginning of April probably.

I have such a mixture of emotions.  I am very excited, but also very worried and stressed.  After so many years you become used to the idea of not having children so the fact that it can become a reality is completely new.  At the same time worried about what will happen if it does not work and all hope will then be lost

Trying to keep positive and reading a lot to try to increase chances of success.  Been considering acupuncture but money is tight so not sure what to do about that yet!

Love and good luck to all of us!  :)
