Not much actually! Just that I need to ring and confirm that I still want to proceed and then I'll get appointment times. Basically the letter is just to say you have reached the top of the list. What treatment are you waiting for? I'm IVF not ICSI maybe that's why my letter came? You should ring and ask where your letter is?.

So i rang yesterday and again today and after a lot of passing the buck i have been informed that they are waiting on the doctor to decide what dose of treatment i need once its been passed back they will send me out my letter. She said that waiting list times change and not everyone gets seen in chronological order, it could be down to their circumstances. She said so long as you are treated within the year!!!! Like seriously!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe that pricklypear I'm hoping for you they are just covering their backs and ur letter has been posted today. I wasn't aware that the list didn't go in order.. I rang again yesterday and she said lists are the same that each week they send out equal amounts of letter for people on both the ivf and the icsi list.. She said mine will be with me in may.. At the minute I'm not goin to hold out much hope for that

Congrats to everyone wo got their letters and hopefully those still waiting wont be waiting much longer. Holly our appointments are 1 day apart!! you're just before me! The appointment dates were a lot sooner than I thought they'd be! Is anyone doing anything in particular to prepare? I wonder if you get your schedule at the second appointment, I know it depends on your cycle etc but I cant wait to get going Nervous too though! (8 o)

Hi ladies just joined this forum...it's great to read how you have kept each other going through the long process waiting for the 'letter' to arrive. I went on the list on the 29th November 16 for ICIS I was wondering if any if you could give me a calculation on expected waiting times based on your own experience. I have rang too only to be told the 8months craic

Hi Martha1, I would think you haven't to much longer to wait. As they are sending out letters for October. So i would say a couple of weeks. Good luck hope you don't have to wait too much longer. X

Hi Martha1, I went on the list for ICSI on December 1st so we should be on the go around the same time! I've been lurking on here looking at when people get their letters. I can't believe we could have our letters in 6/7 weeks!

I am in the same boat. Had first appointment in January 2016 and had to lose the guts of 3 stone to get on the list. Have tried to shift a bit more since. It's been a good distraction. BMI down to 31. I can't wait until I'm overweight and no longer obese.

Finally on the waiting list

Hey ladies, I'm new to this forum. Just got on the waiting list for ICSI at the RTF on 16th May, after over a year attending the clinic and over 2 years ttc. By the sounds of it the waiting list is around 7 months which is good to know. Anyone else here just on the list? Would be nice to have a buddy to pass the waiting time and who'll be going through IVF/ICSI at around the same time x :)

Hey Everyone...been on a few times checking when people are getting there letters, I was put on the list on 25 October and thought when I seen a few other girls got there letters for October a few weeks ago that I would have mine before the end of May. I phoned up this morning only to be told that it would be at least another 3-4 weeks before they would be issuing my letter and even at that it could not be guaranteed. I was hoping that other people where in the same position as me as it seems nearly everyone on here from October already have their letters and dates. I also seen someone got there letter after only being on the list for a few months so im hoping that I hadn't been forgotten about
