Ok so firstly if you were following this blog, please accept my apologies for the long silence and also allow me to update you on what’s been happening.
Had the miscarriage in July at 12.5 weeks and the surgical removal of it so I wouldn’t have to deal with all that. It went ok, pretty uneventful apart from an inflamed vein from the morphine drip.
Had three weeks off work. Probably shouldn’t have gone back as I’ve not really been the same since.
Anyways, still had the consultation with the Dr about the IVF booked in so went along to ask some questions. They were not answered, found out I had low AMH and would not be suitable for funding as discharged from his care.
Logged a complaint
Had second opinion
Spoke to the clinical care commission
Got two cycles funded
Found out we are both cystic fibrosis gene carriers
Went to London for gene counselling
Went back to the new clinic
IVF protocol written up
Meds being delivered next week
Start them at end of the month
I’m so excited I could scream but I’m trying to dampen it. It’s not good as we will need to wait for 11 weeks and cvs test before we know if we will have a healthy child which we can carry to term.
Really depressed with work. It’s getting me down big time. Trying to work out what I can do to boost my moral. Seen occ health and they are trying to help. Got some counselling in a couple of weeks too.
Yet I sit here on the train, anxiously awaiting my arrival to work, the anxiousness feeling like dread and wonder if I should just turn round and go home.
Fingers crossed this IVF works so I can re-evaluate work.
Speak soon xx
