Hello I'm another newbie

We've been ttc for 18 months and have just been referred for tests. I'm 32 and my husband is 35.

I'm feeling really anxious about the appointment as it's only next month, I know my weight will be an issue. I had a pcos diagnosis in 2005 but it's disappeared, endo lasered off a year later and take medication for underactive thyroid, phew!

Our appointment is at Whipps Cross so if anyone has been/is being treated there please get in touch.

Good luck everyone x
