Hi, thanks for taking the time to read this short and sweet little about me section!
I have uncontrolled Epilepsy that has left my Neurologist and other Doctors stumped, with the advice of “live your life” we decided to try for a baby. We tried to conceive for two years with too many negative pregnancy tests to count. Eventually we got the news that I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome) and my husband has low mobility sperm, which then led us to the mine field that is IVF. After losing 4st (56lbs) to be granted NHS IVF funding, one failed fresh IVF cycle and one IVF cycle using a frozen embryo we finally got our miracle, due 04/09/2016. This is not where our problems end though as we navigate the emotional rollercoaster that is my uncontrollable Epilepsy and our much wanted pregnancy!
Simply, this blog is a place for me to unburden my head, write about the eventful journey that is trying to conceive, being pregnant and then parenting whilst living with Epilepsy! It may not be a medical information haven but it will always be real. Jumbled, personal and full of me digressing but real nonetheless!
