So I have news!!! Wonderful, wonderful news! I got accepted for IVF!!!! I’m officially on the waiting list!!! Now, I know this is no way a guarantee that I’ll have a baby, but I already feel so much more positive about everything, The Assisted Conception team told me that artificial insemination wasn’t right for me for whatever reason (I’m sure they told me, but I heard the words “I.VF” and forgot everything else they said).
So, why did I qualify if I’ve been pregnant multiple times in the past few years? I know people might be wondering about this. I’ve been trying for a child for 3 years now with no success and no explained cause for my miscarriages or my now, new sudden struggle to conceive – so that essentially qualifies me as having some form of infertility. The fact I have a stepson also doesn’t matter – it used to, but they’ve changed that rule. (I should say that this is Scotlands rulings, so anywhere else could be (and I think is) entirely different.
I’m in the process of getting blood tests, and my next appointment isn’t until February, but it’s all pretty exciting. I’ll qualify for 3 rounds of free IVF on the NHS (we’re exceptionally lucky in this country), so I hope with all my heart that one of these will be successful! I’ll of course keep everyone updated with what’s going on! I’m so excited and nervous and happy and scared and anxious and giddy and every other emotion you can fit in to my little body…… except sad…..I’m not sad.
