Hi all, I have been lurking for a little while due to getting info and getting comfortable with the idea of doing IVF.
I am Jodie and DH is John. We have a beautiful little miricale named Thomas who is 22months. We have been TTC number 2 since he was 6 months old. In January this year I was dx with Endrometriosis on top of having PCOS and a Clotting factor. DH also has "dodgy" sperm as the FS puts it. We have been doing IUI treatments since about this time last year (I have forgetton now).
I had a second Lap and all that done on Moday just gone and we have made the decision to follow on with IVF when my next period arrives (that is the big unknown). We go for the post op and intake appointments next week. We have all the paperwork which is mind blowing to read. And I think the consent form is about 8-10pages long alone.
This decision has come very hard to us to make, but after finally finding an awesome Dr that we "gel" with, it made it easier. We also struggled a little to overcome the relgious factors, but finally made peace with this after reading the ethos statements of the clinic we are going through.
So this is me.
Hey buddy! Welcome to the board. Sorry you are having to go to IVF but this is a great board and as you know, I am a big fan of IVF! Good luck and I hope AF arrives quickly so you don't have to wait too long. I'll be stalking you here and on FB!
Kym, you probably won't get any IVF news on facebook. We are going to keep it as quiet as we can from our families.
Hi Jodie and Welcome. I hope your stay here is a short and successful one. Looking forward to getting to know you.
Hi and Welcome! Everyone here has a wealth of information. I hope that your cycle is a successful one and adds to our long list of IVF BFPs.

I hope that you get your BFP soon! Everyone here is so supportive and understanding. You'll love it!
Hey Jodi!! I'm glad you ventured over... Everyone here had been welcoming and supportive as I've traveled my journey. I hope you find the same and get your BFP very soon!
Welcome, Jodi!!! I don't know what I would've done without these girls. They are full of knowledge. I am so thankful that I had them to lean on for support. I'm sure you'll have a similar experience. I wish you the best of luck on your IVF journey.
