    Hey spring angel, I had the same thing happen to me only a week ago. I was told after having Max, that I shouldn't get any milk as I wasn't far enough along, well I did. I could feel my boobs tingling and all of a sudden I was "wet". I don't know if it's because I had the pregnancies close together or what, but freaked me out too.

    I am so glad you both found comfort in this, I was the opposite, I actually found it quite distressing. I was so annoyed that my body had failed me when I needed it, and then went and produced milk as if I was going to feed my baby.

    I'm another one who produced milk after both of my losses, even though I was given medication to help it dry up I had a little bit leak. It can make everything you felt about your loss come back compounded, I felt it so unfair that after facing the fact that my body couldn't do what it should to keep my boys safe it could do what it was meant to to help feed them. Many tears & rants with DH happened in my house!!

    Big hugs to you Spring.

    Huge hi's to everyone else, will be back to post properly later (my puter is sick with a virus so I only have limited access atm)

    Hi Girls

    Just a quick question for Deb. We were talking the other day about taking Vit B6 and B12 to aid absorbtion of folic acid, I am going out tomorrow to buy them, but what dosage do I need to take? I also assume I am buying the 2 seperate vitamins not the vit B complex, is that right?

    Thanks Deb

    I think the doses were entered into Deb's information page about all of the potential causes of loss under the homocysteine section. Hope this helps!!

    Morning all

    Flowerchild - I know this may be a silly question but do you prefer Flowerchild or Deb, I just noticed that most people call you Deb. Also, I just wanted to say that although I do not have much experience with the issues covered in your article, I think that you should be thanked for sharing your hard earned knowledge. I believe that knowledge is power and as soon as I got home from hospital the first thing I did was search the net for some answers, that is how I discovered BB. Hopefully everything that you and the other ladies have learned through their heartbreaking journeys will be the piece that completes the puzzle for someone out there

    To Michelle, Clare and Kirsty, thanks for helping with my minor melt-down about my milk. I just seem to freak out over everything and reading that I wasn't the only one, made me feel like I wasn't falling apart. The good thing is that I have left my breasts alone and the don't seem to have engorged or anything like that. I have to admit that I have made my DH so paranoid of touching them, he is trying to avoid my breasts like the plauge (lol) poor thing, he has learnt more about the female anatomy then I think he should have. Gotta keep a bit of the mystery

    Also about the Vitamin thing, I was on Blackmores Pre-conception, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding formula and I have recently swapped to Cenovas Pre-conception Pregnancy and Breastfeeding formula. Given my circumstances, do you think this is ok?

    Kristee: I know you were feeling a little down Hun so I hope you are doing better. Sending big :hugs: your way.

    Well Mel is due back on Sunday so hopefully there will be news of a Honeymoon

    To anyone I have missed I hope that you are well. I am going to try and brave the shops today. Seems that everywhere I turn there are babies and pregnant ladies which I find really tough. I guess everyone has their own struggles so I shouldn't feel that I am the only one. I don't know their story, I just try to remind myself of that.

    Hope everyone is well, I'll pop in later to say hi.

    Thankyou Spring for your kind words. I hope that info helps someone.
    Idon't mind if you call me either. It's a bit confusing isnt' it.
    How did the shopping go? I just came back from a grocery run... Shopping is not a pleasurable experience at this time of year!
    Spring, I would think that it might be a good idea to take a heavy dose of folate/b12/b6. Do a little research but yes would be my gut feeling. Run it by your care provider too.

    Clare: How did you go with the vitamin shopping? I went to buy B6 today and came home with another bottle of B12! BLAH!!!!

    Kirsty:
    I hope that virus is getting sorted. I have missed you around the ridges!
    to everyone I will be back and more together soon!

    Mel: I know you are doing *other* things but I hope your honeymoon is going beautifully.

    I just ordered some opk's from Jodie at Lullaby Conceptions so that I can begin my testathon next week.
    I took my last clomid last evening and my follie scan is Tuesday so I am willing my body to ovulate on cd14 which is next Friday on the Dessimating moon!

    I will be back when things aren't so frantic!

    Hi all

    Hey Spring, how did the shopping expedition go? I know what you mean about pregnant women or babies everywhere. I am having trouble at the moment with people asking when the next one is coming. We didn't tell a lot of people about Max while I was pregnant, as once we reached the 12 week mark that's when it all went pear shape. Now I sort of shock people when I reply - Oh we have already had a second, only we didn't get to keep him, so now we are trying for our third.

    Hi Deb, ha I was the opposite, came home with only vit B6. I couldn't find the B12 at my local shops, so will take a drive into the city tomorrow and look there. BTW do you take Vitex? What does this do? I have heard a lot of women talk about it. All the best for next week, fingers crossed for a nice juicy egg on Friday.

    Well, I need some advice. When we got the results of our amnio, we were told by the doctor the baby was 69XXY, so of course we named 'him' Max. Well on Wed I got a letter from the geneticist saying Max was 69XXX, making my Max a girl!!! Now I don't know whether to ring and get it checked, or just accept it as a typpo. I sort of feel if I ring and Max was a girl, it will open up the wound that is just slowly healing, but am I doing the right thing if I just leave it? Craig is convinced it is just a typo (I think he just wants it to be) and doesn't want me to ring. My MIL originally said yes definately ring, but then when I explained about how Craig felt she agreed to leave it be. We know this baby as our son, and I think it's best left that way, but I am so confused now.

    Hello to all I have missed, hope you are all well.

    Clare what a heart wrenching to go through, I think ultimately you need to be comfortable with the way you decide to go. If you are truly happy to remember Max as your son & think of the results as a typo then that is what you will do, however personally I think I would want to know whether it truly is a typo or not. A huge part of me would always wonder "what if" if I didn't ring & chase up the results for finality. But that said it truly is up to you & Craig how you wish to progress from here on in. Best of luck with whatever decision you decide to make.

    Deb I am still here, puter seems to be fixed for now so am happy about that. As for everything else have just ovulated so am hoping that this is the last time I have to monitor it so closely & that the next time the big O rolls around we will have been given the go ahead to make the most of it!!

    Will catch up properly soon I promise but just wanted to pop in & say hi.

    Hi everyone

    Clare - what a tough thing to have to deal with. I really don't know what I would do and I think you are right by saying that it is a really confusing thing because you have grieved for Max as your son. You know, it totally depends on what you and your DH decide to do. It may open new wounds but you also may find yourself going crazy wondering if you don't find out. I hope that whatever decision you come to, it brings you some peace. Just remember, regardless of whether Max was a little boy or a little girl, just remind yourself that you gave birth to a beautiful little angel I am thinking of you and DH and sending warm fuzzy :hugs:

    My Mum and Dad arrived on Friday so my DH and I have been busy catching up with them. Harrison was the first Grandchild on both sides, and my Mum in particular is finding it very difficult. I guess I am her baby and it breaks her heart to see what DH and I are going through. Anyway, we went to a really nice Turkish restaraunt today and spent the afternoon eating, talking, eating a little more. it was quiet relaxing and we are about to settle in and watch a video.

    I will pop in tomorrow when I have some time and do personals. I hope you all enjoy your night, it has just started raining so a cozy snuggle on the couch and a movie are in order.

    Mwah

    Hi everyone,
    Sorry I have been a little slack too
    Clare: I too am not sure, in a way I think I would rather know so I never have to wonder for the rest of my life but then again you are grieving Max ...your son. When I lost Audrey they wrapped her in a blue patchwork blanket ( the only thing I got to keep) and because she was 17 weeks it was inconclusive of gender until her pathology came back. I found it really hard to accept my baby was wrapped in blue sounds dumb.
    Spring: Sometimes mums have a uncanny way knowing exactly what to do, I hope you and DH are doing ok..its hard to have those meltdowns especially around parents where the crying doesnt seem to stop.
    Kirsty: I hope this is the last practise O,my really bad memory is churning...I'm sure you have an appointment in the new year.
    Deb:Gooo day 14!! Positive affimations for at least 14 days lol. I'm sure you will be a frantic POAS.
    Not much for me, a bit of a blah weekend
    Bec

    Hi everyone,
    Sorry I have been MIA. Weekends are reallybusy (all days are busy but you know...)
    Clare my love I am so sorry that I didn't read your post until now.
    Does this make you feel a little confused? As with most things you are the only one who can know what the best thing for you is.

    For me I would need to know. I am anal and I need things to be just so. So, I would want a definitive. I don't really understand how they could have stuffed this up but anyway. I don't feel I have helped you too much but do know I really am feeling for you. This must feel like it's kinda bringing it all up again... :hugs:
    I felt like Eggy was a boy until I knew he had died and then I thought she was a girl. As you know Eggbert was a girl which still shocks me a bit as the whole pregnancy until the end she was a boy. I know that is not at all the same as with Max but I am glad I know she was my daughter...
    Good to hear from you Bec.
    I hope everyone else had a good weekend: Spring and Kirsty how are you? Mel are you back?

    Well gorgeous women tomorrow is follicle u/s day!!! Yep, I am excited. I am feeling a bit full in my pelvis and a bit twingy so I am hoping some follicular development is occuring and that Kirsten tells me that I am lookin good in there!!!
    Oh my what I have become!

    I will be around tomorrow afternoon to fill you all in...

    Hi All

    I am still so undecided about ringing the hopsital. I have been thinking about it heaps and just dont know what to do. I have been watching DP reaction to it all, and I think he wants to leave it be. I just wonder if I do ring and we find out there was an error, I am going to grieve Max all over again. I mean I thought I had a boy, said goodbye to my boy, then if bubs was in fact a girl I have to say goodbye to Max again and then grieve my girl. Does that make sense? I don't know if I am up to all that grieving.

    I know what you mean Deb, I felt all along that this baby was in fact a boy, and was not at all surprised when they told us that at the beginning.

    Anyway, I think for know I will leave it be. Sometimes the truth is harder to deal with then living a llie. It's the same with seeing his photos, I want to badly but I know he wont look anything like I pictured him too so I am happy with my own visions.

    Anyway this has turned into a lot longer post than I intended.

    Deb all the best for your u/s, I hope you have a nice healthy follie waiting there.

    Spring, your night in sounds wonderful. Sometimes the crappiest whether always results in the best days. I am glad you have such support from your parents. I cant wait to see my Mum again, it's been 4 months I know there will be tears. Mums always know how to put things right.

    I started POAS (OPK) today and of course negative but I am only CD 7, couldn't help myself, but good old womens day stars say I am going to be having a very fertile month - awesome.

    Take care all, thanks for your help

    Hi girls,
    Just got back from my second internal ultrasound in the last few days, the radiographers rang me and told me that the results were inconclusive and they needed to do another The doctor hid the screen this time and didnt say a word but I did see alot of people looking at my scans as I left...have a feeling it isnt going to be good news. So now I supose I wait, I hate these radiographers they were the ones that told me to have my stitch done to my face and then put in the report it was fine so the specialist went off the report...3 days later shabamm maybe that is why they didnt say anything.Gosh the things that are running thru my mind its bad when you google all the symptoms of the things with the big C.
    I'm pretty sure no transfers for me for awhile if ever

    Hi Bec,
    What did you have the u/s done for? Can you phone your doctor and ask for the results? I am really feeling for you - it's so awful when you don't know what is happening. However, I wouldn't jump to any conclusions without speaking to your doctor.
    I hope that you can contact her/him...

    Well,, I just got back from my follie scan. I have a dominant one at 15cm and the runner up is at 12cm - not bad considering I am cd11 today. My doctor is predicting ovulation on Friday and I am to go back in then. She is watching my R) ovary as there were LOTS of less mature follies there. She wants to make sure we don't get too many "ripe ones". Friday is cd14 and the DESSIMATING MOON!!!!!!!! I have a goooood feeling girls!
    I will pop back later... Grow follies grow......
