6-12 months? That's a long wait. Are there not many clinics in your area?

Hmm, I wouldn't go by that tbh. I'd find out from specific clinics that do NHS IVF for your area.

We have options of 3. Oxford Fertility Centre(which I'm 99% sure we won't go with as it's 80 miles from us), IVF Hammersmith and Bourn Hall Cambridge. I asked at our most recent appointment when we were discussing IVF what the options were so we(well, I actually) could do some research and we could make a decision.

Leaning towards Bourn Hall TBH. They're success statistics look slightly better than he other 2 on their website and they're only 25 miles and quite a reasonable journey for us.

According to HFEA website, they have a 4-6 week wait for NHS patients but do advise to contact the clinic and check.

I can't find anything for Liverpool Womens on HFEA website. Is it known as anything else? xx

^Never mind, it's under Hewitt, I've found it!

Looks like there's no waiting times listed for them but there are contact details on the page on the link if you wanted to contact them and ask.

Just a thought, have you actually worked out your current BMI, have you managed any increase in weight at all?

Specialist could have been saying half a stone to give you a bigger target than was needed in the hope you'd get to where you need to be(aim for the moon and if you miss you're among the stars and all that).

Get some protein shakes down you because you might just manage it. Also eggs, meat etc. Have white pasta instead of potatoes and drink a lot of liquid before your appointment. You might feel heavy and uncomfortable doing all that but if you can just trick the scales for your appointment you can concentrate on proper weight gain while you wait. Basically I'm advising you to do the opposite of what I have been advised to do. Also, if you excercise, stop until after your appointment. Apparently if it's not intense enough you will lose weight as you won't build any muscle mass. xx

Looks like the half a stone thing is accurate. For a BMI of 19 on the NHS website's BMI tracker you would need to get up to 8 st 3.

It won't be easy and you might not make the target set but just try and make as much progress as you can this week.

Stick to high energy density foods, live on McDonalds if you have to - then you can take in as many calories as possible without feeling full.

Fruits and veg are low energy density foods so you'll feel full without taking in too many calories(great for me, bad for you.)

IBS won't help. Knowing what your triggers are might help you minimise it's impact though. xx
