Dixie - Really sad that this was not the right time for you . Big hugs.
Imogen - Hi - it is lovely to see a familiar face, how is Roo? Sorry to hear you are feeling so down , and that life is so full of stressful things at the moment. Big hug.
Sue - Gosh - suddenly very excited, then sad as I read on to hear your news. Big hugs.
Hi to everyone else.
I am feeling low today too, Af showed up - and my cycle was only 23 days this month. I am still b/f henry but they are absolutely all over the place at the moment...has anyone any advice/expce on how long until things settled down into their old pattern?
We are considering cycling again at the beginning of next year too. Although at the mo I dont want to stop feeding henry, hopefully he'll decide for himself that he doesn't want mummymilk anymore, especially as from August I am back to work full time I can't stop thinking about it awful it is going to feel being away from him, and I know I must stop because I have been laying the guilt onto DH about being the stay at home parent big time, and it is not really fair on him. I am just being selfish.
Well sorry about the slightly blue nature of this post. I am so glad this board is here now!
Just wanted to say hi to my old cycle buddies Hun, CJ, Imogen and Clare - wishing you all the very best of luck. Can't quite believe where the time has gone. Our babies are growing so fast and here we are again trying for another I feel so broody again.
Sue - sending you a huge . Great news that you conceived naturally but must still be very upsetting.
Dixie - how are things with you?
Hun - how are you feeling today? always has to put in an appearance and ruin everything . Hope next month brings you better news. Sorry can't help with the b/feeding question - I only b/fed my DD for 12 weeks because of reflux and as my cycles are normally all over the place anyway, I really can't offer any good advice Don't be hard on yourself about returning to work, you are bound to find it hard to start off with but I'm sure things will soon settle.
I know we always moan that we never get any decent weather in this country, but I can't wait for some rain - finding this heat way too much. My DD is covered in heat rashes and is not eating, drinking her milk/juice and sleeping very well - poor little thing. How are all your little ones coping with the heat?
Sue - we spoke yesterday, but I just wanted to send you, Clark and Chloe huge love. I was so excited for you all on Saturday, and so sad for you - you sounded brighter on the phone than I was - you are such a courageous lady.
I really, really hope that the Lister wave their magic wand again when you go for IVF when you're ready.
Fee and all of us xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
First I wanted to sincerely Thank you all for your kind thoughts and well wishes, it makes it really much easier to have all you kind people to talk to.
The scan today confirmed the pregnancy is completely gone. My HCG is still about 450 so they will retest next week to make sure it returns to zero (<5).
I am still really sad but like the others on this board and those who have experienced pregnancy loss, I am now more determined than ever to have that little brother or sister for Caroline. Hopefully everyone will soon get their little miracles!
Sue and Imogen, so sorry to hear of your losses too, try to hang in there.
Terri, sorry to hear Lauren has heat rash, Caroline gets that too. We let her sleep in just her nappie and that seems to help alot. The hot weather will hopefully break soon.
Hun, sorry the showed up. Hopefully next month will be the one for you!
Wishing everyone all the best for this and the coming months for making babies!!!
I know we have 'spoken' but I am so sorry to hear of your sadness. On a positve note it is fantastic that you managed to conceive all by yourselves, just so sad that your baby wasnt meant to stay. Those NK cells are wretched arent they.
Is there not anyway you could try naturally whilst on the 'drugs'?
Im sure Dr Thum has explored all avenues
Hi all, really sorry to hear about Dixie and Sue's very sad news I can't imagine how you guys are feeling, I just don't understand life sometimes
It sounds as if your both trying (as hard as it must be) to pull something positive out of this and it's made you more determined to carry on, I wish you both the very best of luck and lots of for getting that little brother or sister for your girls
Well I'm totally confused since having my boys I've had 3 times when I've ovulated since AF returned in Dec and nothing since, we had tx because of my hubby having less the 3% motility not because of me (I used to work alright) so now I think we have absolutely no chance of a natural conception but have decided to try FET in March next year for definite even if we haven't moved to a bigger house, we only have 2 left anyway so we may not even get to ET but I have to try.
My friend told me on Monday that she is pg (just about 6 wks) and she has 10 month old twins! I have to say I was still envious even though I was joking with her about how hard it would be, the only thing is she was on clomid again so who knows she many even have twins again ...although I hope for her sake and sanity theres only one healthy little bubba in there.
Nice to see some of my cycle bubbies from last time on here, wishing you lots of luck for number 2!
Hun - sorry the old witched showed up for you ((((((hugs))))))). I b/f Chloe up until she was 6 months then weaned her off to Aptamil by the time she was 7 months (I thought I was going to be working miles away 3 days a week and just couldn't see how b/f was going to work!). My af stayed away for a couple more months and it went straight back to 28 days so sorry I can't give you any advice? I'm back at work (p/t - 3 days a week) and do enjoy my time away from C (sounds awful) but we have such a great time when we are together that it heightens it? Really hope all goes OK for you.
Terri - Is Lauren any better with the heat now, or still suffering? Chloe seems to be fine (but I love the heat, so hopefully she takes after me!)
Dixie - incredibly sorry to read that your scan yesterday confirmed the pg hasn't worked out for you (((((((((((((((((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))))))))).
CJ - is it worth talking to your doc or your specialist about the ovulation and your worries? ? ?
Chloe makes me laugh, today we've been swimming and to a farm which she thoroughly enjoyed! She cut her 2nd tooth yesterday and today took a couple of minute steps from me towards her "ballblaster"............. where does time go?
So happy to find this thread, I wasn't quite sure where I belonged before I found this one.
Dear Dixie and Sue, my heart goes out to you both. It's so hard and so unfair, but we have to remain positive, because that will get us what we want in the end.
I've just been through the same rollercoaster. DH and I have been trying for a sibling for Tilly, our 4 year old, for the last three years. After the 5th IVF post Tilly, I got a BFP about five weeks ago, then my levels dropped, I had a heavy bleed, and was told I'd miscarried. A few weeks later I still felt funny, although not pregnant at all, but an Hcg and then scan revealed I'd just miscarried an ectopic pregnancy. I didn't think it was possible to have an early miscarriage and an ectopic at the same time, but the clinic says it is, although they couldn't remember it happening before. I was very lucky the ectopic miscarried by itself, although 2 miscarriages in 3 weeks makes me feel very sad.
It's good to know I can get pregnant, and I feel more fertile than in a long time. So it's back to the clinic in Autumn. I do feel that staying positive is the only way forward. I think it can actually make a difference, not just to my life but to my fertility as well. I feel stronger and more prepared because of the pregnancy. At the same time, the grief is very much with me the moment, as anyone who has had a failed IVF or a miscarriage will know.
Look forward to getting to know you all. Love to you and your families.
So sorry to hear of your miscarriages - that's really bad luck and very tough on you. As you say, the positive thing is that you got pregnant so keep hold of that! All the very best for your next cycle, we could be going again around the same time hopefully!
