IVF procedure and early stages of pregnancy. The chapter explains the path that I had to follow; the IVF procedure itself and how I tried to physically and mentally manage and prepare myself for the process. It highlights the degree of mental anguish that the process can inflict; the uncertainty and angst contrasting with sheer elation. It also touches upon how I became admitted onto the ward. I reveal very personal feelings and offer an insight into my beliefs and make up.
