I am due to start IVF on the 7th March & have just found this site, I have had a little browse around already & am hoping for some help/answers or just a chat with people going through the same thing.
I am 37 & my other half is 42  we have been together 13 years & TTC for 7 Years, I had always thought i couldn't get pregnant but in my younger years didn't really want any but then i found out i was pregnant in 2005 & after 12 weeks i started bleeding I went to the hospital & was told i had had a miscarrige & to go home & let nature take its course! 3 days later i collapsed at work & was taken to hospital & scanned & told i had had an Ectopic & they had to operate straight away as my fallopian tube had burst, my right tube was removed & it frightened me so much i was scared to try again.
In 2008 I had a Lap & dye test & my remaining tube was found to be blocked & I was told that there was nothing they could do & the waiting list for IVF was long.
Luckily I had a friend who's dad was a Gyne surgeon & he said he would try to unblock my tube, he operated & managed to remove a blockage but then discovered I had fibroids which must of been there for years (now i know why for the past 10 years i had had such heavy painful periods)
the Fibroids were removed during lap op & we were referred to St Marys for IVF in Sept 2010, we have had all the tests & my OH has a good sperm count & my eggs are good for my age
the IVF is due to start on the 7th March 2011 & I have been fine about it up until now, I am scared & don't know what to expect to the point I have nearly pulled out a couple of times hence why I came on here............................Phew long winded story out & I feel a bit better already just getting it down
Thanks for taking the time to read this & I wish everyone else going through this the best of luck  :)

^hugme^ Thanks Mandy & Lou.
you have made me feel a bit better about the whole nerves thing  :-*
I came on my period 2 days after my little wobble so now i know why i was feeling so upset & horrible about the whole IVF process, my PMS catches me unawares every month  :)
Lou I have clicked on the links you posted & have found them helpful but i couldn't click on the link which explains all the abbreviations? I have worked a few out myself but some are very confusing  ;D
Mandy I will pray for the best for you also seeing as we are both starting in March it would be nice to here how you get on.

Thanks, Alice  ^daisy^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
