Help us fund our next ivf treatment

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. 

Love Sam, Hayley and Amaryllis xx

Thank you all for the recent support and a huge thanks go to Tejia for her kindness!

We have changed the total amount needed as the hospital fees have increased so for the transfer alone it is £1750 that's without the initial consultation, scan costs, blood tests, medication and various other costs. At the moment I have set it to £2500 but it may need to increase again.


All our love

So a few may know I've spent the last few days in hospital, I've had a large 9cm cyst removed from my left ovary the doctor said if he'd left it it would have burst causing me excruciating pain so I'm very pleased I pushed to get sorted.
That said the cyst was connected to my ovary so now I have a bitbof a mangled left ovary but it's still there which is the best bit.
This has put a bit of cybosh on our plans to go for the consultation next month as he said i need time to heal which makes sense. Going to give it a few months and then book it in.
For now I need to rest a bit.
lots of love xxx

So we've booked our review appointment at the clinic for 14th December, this appointment will include a full 3d scan for me (this alone costs £130) and a meeting with a new doctor as ours left (this also costs £150) so for one day it's going to cost us £280!!! This, considering were now classed as private is pretty reasonable although more expensive than some.
I am so nervous about the scan as it's been so long since we were there and I know my endo is getting bad again so I'm not sure what the scan is going to show.
Please if you read this and are religious I'd just like to ask for some prayer on the appointment and that the scan doesn't show anything bad or anything that need a treatment.
Thanks and love you all!!

Hey all, thought I'd do an update as it seems I've been struggling a bit just lately and I'm not sure why so gonna use this page as like a blog :)
So I thought (naively) that once I had my precious little miracle that the want and need that is so deep rooted inside would go but how wrong was I?? It's very much still there and I feel guilty, guilty for the fact I have a daughter and still want more, guilty because I know there are so many women and men out there that can't have children for one reason or another, guilty because I should be enjoying every moment of Amaryllis but it's so hard.
IVF is not an easy thing to do and it's not the 'easy' option as some may think.

I think the worst part for me is knowing that what ever I do there won't ever be the chance of conceiving a child naturally with the one I love, the only way we do this is by medical intervention and that's so hard to get your head round I tell you!!

I love my daughter to pieces and I know if we were lucky enough to have another child we would love that one just the same. I'm sure Amaryllis would make an amazing big sister!!

We're going through such a stressful time at the minute, house move and Sam being unwell with pseudamonis and now a vein infection too, it literally feels like we are only just keeping our heads above water and I hope once Sam gets better and were all moved and settled this will be easier.

Love you all xxx
