my names becky i live in england im 28 (almost 29) and 3 months ago found out that our only chance of having a baby is through I.V.F !!! Arfter my daughter was born 10yrs ago (im told now that ) i picked up an infection in labour that has left my fallopian tubes completely scarred and stuck to my bowels and womb!!!
Anyway i had an appointment with my specialist today and was told i could have i.v.f or icsi but i need to loose a stone and give up smoking first then i have a 2-3 month wait b4 starting treatment/cycle's!!! i was also told that our chance's of getting pregnant were only 35% because of my age etc....my question is how many attempts does or has it taken you guys to get pregnant???
We both so desperatly want a baby but im so scared of going through the treatment and roller coaster of emotions that i really don't no what the right thing to do is!being a mum is what ive always wanted to be and all i know the thought of never being able to carry another child or feel it growing inside me is to horrendous to think about and i just need to no if my chances are better than im thinking they are or weather to just be realistic and cut my loose's ive been told that we may have 3-6 cycle's funded by the NHS but this hasn't been confirmed by an actual doctor its just what my partner heard on the news so i don't no if i should get my hopes up or not!!!!
Any help or advice from people going through this would really be great pep around us aren't very understanding!!!!!!its hard too coz all my female friends are either pregnant or just given birth so im faced with it all the time!!!!!
thanks Becky xxx
