    Possums, don't be too hard on yourself about feeling low I was low for so long after my last m/c, you have deal with it all in your own time - don't feel that you have to be chipper if you don't feel that way. No doubt about it it is a hard road to travel post m/c and when it is also not your first one and you add difficulties falling pg to that mix, well it is not a happy situation to be in to say the least!

    But you are strong and trust me when I say there is light at the end of the tunnel. I thought I would never get there sometimes but I did and yep the odds are very much in your favour! But yes, I won't lie to you about the fear of future losses either, the fear is not easy to deal with and I still feel worry quite often even this far along. I really have been a total basket case at various times as well

    But I will finish by saying that I'm looking forward to seeing you announcing your pregnancy really soon



    All the best

    Hi Possums,

    Gosh, I don't know how to feel with your news.
    I am so sorry you have this condition, but on the other hand thank goodness you now have an answer. I hope that now knowing this you'll be able to get the care you need to have a wonderful, healthy pregnancy with a beautiful ending.
    Take care of yourself babe.

    Possums - dont be hard on yourself for feeling down, or not feeling optimistic that you now know what is happening..I still feel 'cheated' out of a 'normal' pg - even though things are going well. And you have suffered great loss to get to this point - and that will never go away.

    People ask me all the time if I got MS and then proceed to tell me how lucky I was that I did not...then I tell them very nicely that I'm lucky I did not get MS because I dont think I could handle giving myself 2 injections a day and throwing up!!! Wipes the smile of their face a little - I hate peoples judgement that somehow because I did not get MS I have an 'easy' pg!

    I resent the fact that I have trouble enjoying being pg because I'm worried about what the APLS might mean for the baby, and that I still live for scans to make sure that Tex is growing well.

    So dont be hard on yourself - what you are feeling, is normal, as is still being worried and wondering what you/we did to be in this position (we did nothing to deserve it - it just happened), and that it is unfair that we have to go through this. I totally understand and am happy to hold your hand, as we all need support as we travel this journey!

    FG- thanks for the support and sharing how you feel. That feeling of being 'cheated' is something I definately relate to, and I also have plenty of anger and resentment which rise in me from time to time, along with the general sadness and worry!
    I am now trying to dig deep and find hope and positivity as we have begun another IVF cycle, and also because feeling so low is not healthy I am sure!
    I hope all is progressing well for you still? I also hope you are able to enjoy the pregnancy a bit more as time moves forward for you
