My story

[p]Hello and thank you for looking at my donation page.[/p][p]I am running the London marathon in October 2021 on behalf of fertility network to help raise money and spread awareness.[/p][p]Myself and my wife kat had tried for children for 3-4 years before we started our IVF journey. We knew it could be difficult To have children naturally as kat suffers from PCOS.[/p][p]We consulted with Oxford fertility and started our treatment in 2017.[/p][p]Our first cycle was a fresh cycle which we only had two embryos to use which sadly led to a failed cycle.[/p][p]To get over our heartbreak In February 2018 we decided to go for another cycle starting from egg collection.Oxford collected 25 follicles this time in which 12 fertilised and 11 made it through to the final frozen stage. My wife had ovarian hyper stimulation from the medication which is why we couldn’t have a fresh cycle. We had two eggs transferred again and in the April we had our first ever positive test but unfortunately we found out that it was an ectopic pregnancy which resulted in kat losing her right Fallopian tube. [/p][p]In July we started our 3rd cycle which was again a frozen cycle with two Embryos being transferred in the August. This time we had a positive test and gave our results to Oxford to book us in for our early scan for September.[/p][p]We had positive news and with big surprise we found out we were expecting twins. [/p][p]At times we found it a very long and worrying time but the journey Was worth it and Lillie and mikeala were born on April 7th 2019.[/p][p]I am running the London marathon to raise money for fertility network and also raise awareness for couples going through fertility issues.[/p][p]Thank you for your support and donations [/p][p]Craig McAllister [/p][p][br][/p]
