    hi ya girls - I hope you dont mind another gate crasher. I think I joined when I first m/c but got lost in transit for a while you probably all know what i mean
    Satya - I m/c on the 16th of March (twins who we called Sunni and Willow) and had a full m/c diagnosed on the 21st and I still dont have my pg back....makes me wonder now could I be?? I dont want to think of it yet cause I dont want to get my hopes up but YES a christmas baby would be extra special after what we have been through. IM sorry you got a BFN firstly, but it wasnt until I was 6 week pg that I got a BFP. God I want to go and buy a test now....
    Jed (DH) and I were taking a break until September to start trying again but I would love to be pg right now.
    Again girls, I hope you dont mind me jumping in, I would love to get to share this with you all cause you all understand the urge I feel.

    Hi Ladies,

    Just dropping into say hi and I hope you are all well.

    Lee - Welcome and I am so sorry for your loss. You sound like a very strong and determinded lady. I wish you all the best and the ladies in this thread are a wonderful support system. I am glad that you got to met your little angel, those memories must be so precious. Hugs to you and your family.

    I am doing ok atm. Morning sickness is all day sickness (I am not complaining) because the last 2 pgs I did not have any symptoms. Only 5 days till my ultra sound to see what/if there is a healthy bub growing. I am getting a bit nervous because it is between wks 6 and 7 that I normally miscarry.

    Janeo - Glad you decided to stick around.

    Hi everyone,

    Welcome Lee. I am so sorry for your loss of Luc. Such a happy event soon followed by such sadness, I cannot begin to imagine. I know you will find the support you are looking for here. We all have the same aim here and help each other through the bad days & celebrate the little victories together.

    Welcome maz. I am sorry for your double loss. Yes we do understand. We've all been through at least one loss and are all very eager to ttc as quickly as possible. I hope your lack of AF means a BFP is on it's way soon.

    Bun - how did you go at the FS today?

    Sharon - Damn that AF for arriving. It's very disappointing when you have started to think you are pg and then it turns out you are not. Fingers crossed for a BFP this cycle.

    Bekz - Sending you heaps of sticky vibes.

    Herbie - at 30 & 31 you guys are nowhere near too old so give your DH a swift slap around the ears for saying that. You were due on my birthday so I will have some special thoughts for your little angel on that day.



    Well my AF managed to stay away today so I was able to have my ultrasound. I had both the normal one and the internal one done. I was told there's no sign on PCOS which is what I suspected. I have no idea why my doctor thought that I could have it, I just knew I didn't.

    The operator spent ages measuring things & it took about 30 minutes to do both scans. I don't remember them taking that long in the past but it is a few years since I had one so maybe I've just forgotten. She didn't say much other than I only had two follicles which ruled out PCOS and that one ovary was very difficult to see. Not sure what that means.

    I noticed that there was a small dark blob in my uterus. I wasn't game to ask her what it was. Stupid I know, but I figured if she wanted to tell me she would, otherwise I would have to wait for the doctor. Of course now I'm back to thinking maybe I could be 4 wks pg as I've looked up 4 week u/s & that's how they look. It's probably more likely to be a left over clot that will expel sometime soon but I can't help but think it's something else.

    Anyway, it will be a long wait until I see my doctor Saturday of next week. I'm quite paranoid that they will have found something that is going to make TTC difficult.

    Satya - OMG thats wonderful about your little 'blob' I'll be expecting to see you get a BFP in about 3 - 4 days.
    Lee - im so sorry your little man passed away so quickly. He is lucky to have found such an extrodinary mummy like you to cuddle him before he got his wings.
    Bekz - I cant wait to hear your u/s results.
    Just wanted to give you a little run down on me (sorry if I bore anyone)
    I got my tubes clamped after having WIlhelm because we thought we wouldn't be able to handle another baby with him being Autisic. I woke up from surery and kew I had done the wrong thing. My brother died in the following june and I asked him for a sign to let me know if I had done the wrong thing. I went to my doctors cause I was feeling [email protected] and had a 'lump; im the middle of my groin. Thinking the worst (my sister had an emergancy hystercomy at 27 due to cancer down there) the doctor sent my for an u/s only to see a 'sac' and embroy that had died at 7 weeks. I was gob smacked. I fell pg 2 more times after that and then decided that was it, I wanted a reversal cause I knew I still had to be a mummy. I had my reversal in october 2005 and fell pg with Vyolett at my BIL wedding in december 2005. Vy was born in septebmer last year and lo and behold - I had a m/c last november. We decided to start trying again in October this year but I did a detox and went off the pill and we really weren't fussed if we fell pg again...and yep first cam the m/s straight away and VERY bad! oh yucky. Started bleeding on the friday and it stopped on the monday. Wednesday woke with cramps and more bleeding, so I went to the emergency department to be told (after u/s) that there were 2 and I had a complete m/s no need for a D&C. We had no idea until we m/c that we were expecting twins but they say the older you get the more chances of a multiple birht there is....god im only 32
    So I just wanted to share a bit about me so you have an idea of who and what i am. I cant wait to add to my family and would love to have another baby by mid next year. Im planning on trying to get my body right and chart everything so that I dont m/c again.
    thanks for listening guys

    Hi ladies,

    Lee - I had tears in my eyes reading about your sweet little boy and what you and your family have been through. I truly hope that you get some answers soon about what happened. We are all here for you if you need to vent, cry or just have a big virtual hug.

    Maz - Wow, sounds like you have been through quite a bit to get here. You have definately come to the right place, hope you get your sticky BFP soon.

    Sharon - so sorry to hear that AF showed, must mean you are meant to have a 08 baby, like the rest of us I am sure!

    Jenjams - Sorry that you are feeling down honey. Sometimes you need to have a down day and thoroughly wallow in your doubts to allow you to move on. I know I have them all the time!

    Janeo - glad the natropath went well, hopefully your body will decide to give you a BFP soon!

    Satya - Glad AF stayed away so you could have your ultrasounds. Keep us informed!

    Bun - Hope you are doing ok, and that the doc's get some answers for you asap.

    Las - Do you set an alarm in the morning? I am usually pretty crap with remembering things, but I put the therm right on top of the alarm so I can't turn it off without being reminded to temp... I have to be really cunning with myself in the morning...

    Herbie - I'm so with you on the waiting thing. It is the pits! Just think though, you might be getting your BFP in just a few more days.

    Anyhow, not much going with me. I'm on CD 12 and have had 2 temp rises over the last 2 days, so started BD'ing even though I dont usually O until day 16 as a min. Feeling pretty down about the whole TTC thing, and not too optomistic that it will happen for me. I know I really need to snap out of it though. Just seems that everyone around me is having healthy happy babies.

    anyhow, big hello to everyone that I missed, hope you are doing ok.

    love

    Thanks for your responses and kind words, it really does help. And thanks Alex, your story was similar to mine - although all my blood tests came back totally normal through my pregnancy. I really don't know what happened to my baby, it's like he "forgot to breathe". Very sad, broken heart.......

    On another note - after the birth, I bled for about 2 weeks - normal loss. Then it all stopped. This week, 2 days ago - which would make it 6 weeks after birth - I had (what I thought) was my first AF. It was normal AF type blood - i.e. not 'left over' dark blood. But it came and went, pretty lightly, but definately there for 2 days, and has now stopped. I do assume this was AF, but just a bit 'out of sorts' after birth. I am a pretty healthy person, and even with such a huge trauma, I am amazed at the human body's ability to bounce back. I just guess I expected AF to be heavier.

    I got online and brought some ovulation tests, so will start testing in a week or so. I'm getting "information obsessed"!!

    Sending you all positive vibes and my deep appreciation for your support and also sending you all very very very positive vibes for having your dreams come to fruition.

    Lee - So sorry to read of your loss. I hope you find out some answers for you and your family. *hugs*

    Hello to everyone else. Not much happening here, besides lots of mood swings (my DH is blaming the Clomid). Just don't feel like communicating with anyone much at the moment, IYKWIM. I should be due to O sometime in the next week, so I guess I'll have to start being nice to my DH. lol

    Cheers

    Hi everyone,

    Maz - I don't think I there will be a BFP on it's way as I'm spotting and I don't feel pregnant. I guess I'm still hoping that I will be but it's more likely to be a clot sitting there. When I miscarried it was less than a normal period (apart from a few small clots) so I expect there will be something left over.

    Leyla - I know how hard it is but try to keep your thoughts positive. The negative ones never get us anywhere. Wednesday night (the night before my ultrasound) I was in floods of tears and I couldn't even tell my DF why - I just did not know. Since having the ultrasound I've been OK again.

    Belinda - Those mood swings on Clomid are foul aren't they? I remember them well. I'm so hoping I don't have to go back on it because I know I became a cow on it.



    Still spotting so I guess AF is on it's way. It had stopped by the time I went for my u/s but came back afterwards, yesterday it was red, today it's brown so maybe that's all it is. I'm still keeping the fingers crossed for a BFP but all the "symptoms" I had a week ago have disappeared so I'm pretty sure I'm not pg.

    oh Satya - I hope that Im crying for you. Sorry but im very emotional and it just sucks when this happens. Im still praying for you. When I had my m/c I had an internal scan at 5 weeks and saw a 'blob' the chick couldnt tell me how many or anything but I got so excited to, then 2 days later I started blleding. I just hope that your little bugger sticks.
    Could someone please educate me about clomid?

    Good morning girls,

    Way too many people in this thread.

    Satya- You know what they say, it aint over until the fat aunt sings. Or something like that anyway! Hopefully it will be positive for you!
    Belinda- Does chocolate help with the moods? It seems to help for a lot of things!
    Lee- Positive vibes right back at ya.
    Leyla- I'm with you on the whole TTC thing. Some days optimism just wont cut it. With luck you BD'ing this month just may be it for you.
    Maz- After what you have been through, I am willing any m/c to stay away. In fact no girls deserve any m/c.

    Will I am on CD37. According to FF I am 13 DPO so I guess AF will arrive tomorrow. Have been spotting for over a week now. I wish she would just hurry up so I can try next month. It was nothing worse when I had a good BD month in April and then the spotting started so it was worth nothing. A bit disheartening.

    I almost forgot. Bekz, good luck for the ultrasound. Let us know how it goes.

    Jen

    Morning girls,

    Well, my FS appointment went totally different from what I expected. We are now TTC this cycle! Apparently I have a healthy follicle and am about to O in the next couple of days. He has finally agreed that I need clomid which will lengthen my LP and hopefully help to sustain a pg. However, it is too late for this now as you need to take it in the first half of your cycle. So instead, I am on pregnyl injections that I need to take every three days for a fortnight after I O. I was soooo confused by it all at the appointment, but after cruising BB for a bit this morning, I am feeling a bit better about it. My FS really didn't spend much time with me and the whole appointment was a bit of a whirlwind, and then he left me with the nurse to explain it all to me a bit better.

    I really never thought it would get to this. Injections seem so serious and I am a bit overwhelmed. DH used to have to inject himself for a medical condition a few years ago, so he is fine with it and will be able to give me the injections, but my head is still spinning. Oh, I also have a script for clomid next cycle if this one doesn't work. Why he couldn't have just given me the script months ago when I first asked for it, I don't know. Also, this is the much more expensive option (I don't even know how much yet). But anyway, at least something is being done and he seems to think this will fix the problem. I should be happy but I really am feeling quite overwhelmed by it all. I had accepted that we were not TTC this cycle, and in a matter of minutes I was told I am trying, I am having injections and it's all go go go. I know this is what I wanted, but sometimes it takes my head some time to catch up!

    Welcome Maz and best of luck!

    Bekz - thanks for checking in. It is all sounding very positive this time. Make sure you let us know how your scan goes.

    Satya - I'm glad they found no sign of PCOS. What a pain having to wait over a week for your dr appointment. I hope the black blob doesn't turn out to be anything bad. I don't think it matters if one ovary is hard to see - sometimes I have had people take a while to find one and other times not, and my specialist has never commented on it at all. They do take a while doing scans - I think they have to measure everything and stuff. It's a pain when they are doing the internal and you just want them to hurry up and finish!

    Hi to everyone else, sorry for a mainly selfish post, but I am all out of energy!

    Bun xx

    Thanks for your wishes everyone.

    Bun - Wow I have all fingers and toes crossed for you this cycle. All the very best.

    Satya - Sounds like you are having a hard time, hugs and I hope all your results etc come back a ok.

    Hi everyone else, hope you are all very well and busy ttc.

    Well, I am feeling ok atm (just ok). After having days of strong symptoms they have suddenly stopped. I hope it is just a pause and that everything is ok. I guess I will have to wait until Tuesday.

    jenjams-I am with you on the good bding month, I have had a great one too, I am 8DPO so still have all crossed but am very optomistic about the whole thing. I always think the worst so am telling myself it won't happen again oh well [email protected]#$ happens I spose. I hope AF hurry's up for you so you can get back into it.

    Hi everyone,

    Maz - Clomid is a tablet that is usually used by women who don't ovulate regularly. I used it years ago but didn't conceive until 3 months after going off it.... not sure if it had anything to do with it.

    Jenjams - If the spotting is because of AF being on its way I hope it arrives soon. If the spotting is caused by an early pg then I hope it just goes away.... you never know.

    Bun - I'm so pleased you got some action from your FS. Don't worry too much about the delay in getting Clomid. From what I've read on it Pregnyl is probably more suited to you anyway as you don't seem to have trouble with Oing, it's more the sticking which is the problem & Pregnyl is good for that. I hope this is all you need to get the next one to stick.

    Herbie - waiting can be really bad, but what else can you do but wait? Things are sounding promising so far.... good luck.



    I'm CD 29 today & I'm getting some very light bleeding so I guess AF will be well and truly here by tomorrow morning. Trying to not let the disappointment kick in. I'll have to just try to think positive thoughts - I don't have PCOS & I had two follicles this month - these will have to be my mantra for the next week until I see my doctor.

    ARGH!!!! I have been faithfully taking my temps and noticed that I had a dip the other day (CD10), but thought, 'no, it's far to early for that to be my O dip'. Anyhow you guessed it, FF has given me a coverline! I am so upset. We did not BD this cycle until yesterday (2DPO according to FF)! I never O on CD10! What the?

    I am so very disapointed. I was so hoping that this month would be it. My CM and OPK's dont indicate O yet, however. Does anyone know anything about how much trust I should put in my temps? I am so confused.

    So sorry for the selfish post... really need some advise if anyone knows anything that could help!

    Did you have a normal sleep?? Did you wake at a different time or anything that might have affected your temp??? I really hope FF is wrong... I have just noticed that it isnt a full coverline so it might still change still do temps/opks and check cm cos it might change... Hold in there..

    Thanks Janeo... no I did not do anything abnormal to cause the temp rise. I have been really good with taking it at the same time in the morning, as soon as the alarm goes off. I have been under a load of stress at work, but that's nothing new!
    Yes, I'm really hoping that it does turn out to be a mistake. I have long cycles, so it just feels like you have to wait for ages when you miss an oppotunity.
    I wish I'd taken a leaf out of your book and not temped this month!! I would feel a lot less stressed then!

    thanks anyhow matey...
