I'm going to be a Tummy Mummy for my friend!!

Well I've decided to go through IVF to carry my friends baby. She lost her womb through cancer a few years ago, though her and hubby has embryos frozen.

I've thought about helping for a while and it just seems right now that I've had my family (2 boys). So we will be starting treatment soon, weirdly I'm excited!!

Has anyone gone through IVF? What can I expect?

    Well done you!

    What a wonderful thing to do for your friend, she is lucky to have someone like you. I'm a gynae nurse and have some experience of working on the IVF side of things, and there really arent enough people like you to do this sort of thing!

    Its a long process and you may find it very draining, I'm sure all of this will be explained to you beforehand. I wish you all the best for it! xxxxxx

    Hi



    If you use my email button I can email you back. I'd rather not share the IVF process on a public forum as it was very personal for me.

  • Just wanted to echo what everyone else has said in that it is a wonderful thing that you are doing and not many people out there would put themselves through this for a friend.



    I don't for a second think that it will be an easy process for you to go through, I have not been through IVF we were just looking into it when I got lucky, stay strong and know that it will all be worth it in the end when you make your friend so so happy!!



    Good luck sweetie I hope that it all goes well for you all
