Hi,

I have been regularly reading this site over the last 3 years, as I have had two years of fertility treatment, an ectopic pregnancy, two rounds of IVF (John Radcliffe -Oxford), a bumpy pregnancy (serval months of bleeding), and now have a lovely baby boy called Dylan. Born 9/4/04, who will hopefully sleep long enough for me to write this.

This board has answered lots of my questions, and provided lots of support, even though I never managed to pluck up enough courage to register.

I am now enjoying my maternity leave in the summer sunshine, while trying to lose my preganacy weight ready for my next attempt which is planned for December

Sorry I have not managed to attach a picture, but this is all very new to me.

Helen - and a still sleeping Dylan

Hello, I'm new to the site but have been looking at the messages for a couple of months now on and off. I am 32 and have been trying for over four years - we've been recommended for IUI but if I want to have it on the NHS I need to lose two stone in weight, which I'm trying to do but it isn't easy. ^bunches^.

Thanks for all the inspirational messages and good luck to you all.

Thanks for all the encouragement to post :)

Rachel Md - good luck with the weight loss - I had to lose weight for my first IVF cycle, and lost 3.5 stones - but I'm still overweight now. Knowing it would affect my IVF chances made loads of difference to my motivation, and is the only time I have ever actually lost weight.

Noodley - I have only ever seen Dr Comber at the Jon Radcliffe, and only went there for the IVF cycle. He seems really good and very helpful.
