Lucy, can you tell us how you felt when you got that phone call from us, and realised that you were going to be given a free round of IVF and that your journey was about to begin?
When I saw the initial text I couldn’t quite believe it, as I had just come out of a funeral. I just remember bursting into tears! I couldn’t even think straight. All I remember saying to my husband was “IVF!!”….. this is our chance and our gift from Nanny:(
Can you tell us about your journey so far?
How has your journey made you feel so far?
My journey so far has made me feel like a failure because I am unable to have the one thing in life that I want the chance to experience.
Do you have a strong group of friends and family around you or have you found TTC an isolating experience?
Had you not have been given this free round of IVF, what would your next steps have been?
I had started to be at peace with the fact that I may never have the chance to be a mum and would probably have ended up getting another dog 🙂 or having an extra special holiday or spa weekend away.
Now that you DO (YES!!) have this free round, what do you need to do now/what are the next steps?
What are your plans for the next 3 months?
No words can ever express my thanks and gratitude for this chance, in making my dreams that bit more of a reality 🙂 I would never have thought that I would get a chance like this it is like winning the lottery 🙂
