So a bit about us, I'm Hayley and married to Sam who has cystic fibrosis and were told we wouldn't have children naturally so we had to go down the ivf route, we applied in April of 2009 and were turned down due to my age and weight. I then went a bit crazy and put lots of weight on and made it even harder for myself. I now had just over 2 stone to lose and managed this by May 16 so we applied again, we went on holiday in Aug 16 and got home to the letter to say we'd been accepted to have 1 full round on the NHS (perfect end to our holiday). Sam had to have surgical sperm retrieval in the Jan 17 and I started hormone injections just after. My body didn't like them and it took longer to get to egg retrieval than the hospital had first thought with numerous trips to Nottingham hospital every day. We finally got there in April 17 and 10 eggs were taken, 6 were mature and 2 made it day 5. One became our beautiful daughter Amaryllis Faith born Jan 18 and the other is in Care Notts freezer (that always makes people laugh when I say that). We would really like the opportunity to use that embryo and give Amaryllis a brother or sister but we can't afford the treatment fees alone so we're asking you lovely people if you would donate some money towards our treatment. We are still undecided whether to go unmedicated or medicated (although swaying more towards to medicated). But with medication costs, scans and the actual implantation it is quite costly.
We really do thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for journeying this with us.
