First Appointment

My appointment was at 9.45 this morning, and my mum came with me (I will probably drag her to everything). We eventually managed to find the place ok – my satnav is old and the clinic is on a new development, which is not a good combination!
When we walked in there was quite a queue at reception, she eventually got to me. She looked through my forms, took my photo for the system and then told us to wait. There were 3 or 4 other couples in the waiting room and I felt rather out of place, obviously being on my own. We were called in by a midwife, and she went through my history. I told her about my previous loss at 21 weeks, my antiphospholipid syndrome and my overactive thyroid, she made careful notes, but didn’t suggest any major issues. She showed me a Gonal F injection pen which she suggested would be used in the treatment and then I had my bloods taken to test my AMH (egg reserve).
I feel like she expected me to ask more questions, but I have done my research so didn’t feel I needed to!
And that was it, back in a week to see the consultant! She didn’t give any indication that anything would pose a massive problem, so I am cautiously optimistic!
