Hi, Alice.

I'm pretty new here, too.

My DH and I have recently had our first appointment at the Fertility Clinic and I found it a very positive experience.
We had a long chat about SA and Blood Test results, then the doctor examined both of us (me internally), we had our blood pressure taken and our height and weight checked.
Then we discussed what would happen next.
For me, it's an HSG. For my DH it's more SA samples.

I felt relieved afterwards - as if my journey to being a Mummy was finally happening.

Good luck with your appointment, and let us know how you get on.
