    ....it has even given me two natural bfp's after Archie was born..(what the????)....as we tried 4 years with no luck waht so ever..and I had two natural bfp's but sadly they been chem pregnancies..(last one was just last period) ....but still in complete shock for me...truly insane.....I am now 40 and will soon start my FET and I am in hope that my body now know what to do a bit easier (well..there is always hope ) ...about to do in april/may......

    Hi everyone,

    Not much time for BH lately... I'm missing you girls! Glad that Spot and Millie's pregnancies are all going well!

    Starfish - hope you got the drugs sorted - so a new cycle this month??

    Pinky - how's isabella doing? Hope you got onto the paed and the kidney problem can be fixed... It's horrible having other addition woes in a newborn when really just feeding is enough to deal with!!!

    Trying - getting closer - PLEASE let me know when it happens!! v exciting!

    Slinky - PUPO girl - I'll hope and pray for a sticky BFP this time

    Hi to everyone else I've missed.... Crofty, Troppo

    AFM - Tom is going ok - I'm stressing about milk issues - he's just so bl00dy hungry and never satisfied, but refuses a bottle so I've been permanently allocated to the lounge with boobs hanging out.... TMI sorry!
    Nathan's paed appointment was disappointing - 5 min consultation and he said he wasn't overly concerned about him but said his language is appalling and could explain all his autistic traits - so recommended 4 months intensive speech/OT and then see him again - he might recommend further assessment at that point if he doesn't improve. Effectively all that means is that he still needs all the treatment of an autistic child, but without the label we don't get the funding to pay for it! As long as he improves I don't really have the energy to care currently!

    Pink, I hope you have had an answer by now from your Paed? The waiting is so stressful, thinking of you and family

    Swede, I'm so sorry honey to hear about your 2nd chemical pregnancy I too was amazed when I started getting natural BFP's after YEARS of IVF and trying naturally. It still completely dumbfounds me but the body works in mysterious ways! I look at Fiona's story it it always gives me hope that it is possible! Hope Mr Archie is doing well and we're all here to cheer you on for your FET if that's what comes next

    Mum4nay, It sounds like you are also having a really tough time and I'm sorry there wasn't more the Paed was able to offer you at this time. Getting started on the intervention makes sense regardless of diagnosis, but is a 2nd opinion something you would consider?? Tom sounds like he is absolutely thriving (and those kgs must be falling off you! ).

    Trying, how are you doing?

    Slinky, PUPO Mama, how are you feeling?? 1 week down, you are on the home stretch!!!

    AFM,
    AF didn't arrive at all and bt today showed hormones now appear 'suppressed'. It is 6 wks post hysteroscopy and scarring being removed and I feel I am getting no joy from my clinic in exploring further what is going on. FS' solution is to go back on the pill and have a withdrawl bleed but I don't feel like this addresses in any way WTF happened to the lining I did have this cycle when I clearly ovulated

    So I have decided to put the transfer on hold indefinitely and seek a 2nd opinion. I have an appt on March 29th with the endometrium specialist Dr V (whom Trying so helpfully suggested and I have read great things about him on the Asherman's support group, so thanks again for that).

    Rant coming up! I feel so incredibly frustrated facing roadblock after roadblock and more than a little ripped off that I am in this situation because I have been unfortunate enough to have repeated MC's and D&C's. I really wish I had known more about the risks and had been offered other options like misprostol... Sorry pity party will soon be over, it's not really my style to wallow! But I did appreciate the opportunity to vent !

    Will be away next week as DH and I are going to Byron for my birthday. Timing really couldn't be better and looking forward to some time at the beach with my beautiful DH and some seafood and champagne!!

    starfish - It just feels so inadequate to send a few electronic hugs. I am so terribly sorry that you are having to endure so much, and so understand your terrible frustration that the most recent issues stem from the misfortune of D&Cs. For what it's worth, I'm sending a truckload of these your way . I wish there was more that could be said, but in the absence of sufficient eloquence, just to say that I do think you're very wise suspending any further transfers until the hormonal and endometrial issues have been sorted out. Horribly frustrating and maddening though it is. I'm doing lots of these on your behalf. It's just so bl00dy unfair. At the risk of these sounding like empty words, I do continue to believe that you will hold your baby in your arms. As you say, the body works in mysterious ways. You can successfully conceive and with the right embie and right conditions, that baby will come.

    mum4nay - wow, Tom sounds absolutely insatiable. No worries about him gaining weight in all the right ways. It does sound completely exhausting though. I can also understand your frustration re the dissatisfying appointment for Nathan. Unfair to wait for ages to see someone only to feel that you got the brushoff and no real answers. On the other hand, maybe a little reassuring to hear that the solution may lie in language? Our little bloke has been somewhat delayed with his speech and has a few behavioural issues that I do sometimes think probably stem from not feeling properly understood.

    pinkB - stressful times for you too lovely. Did you manage to get hold of the doctor to get an explanation? Really hope that whatever is going on with Isabella's kidney is not affecting her appetite or anything else. Hope too that in spite of the stress you are able to enjoy your beautiful new little girl.

    swedeendie - yes, the body does work in mysterious ways. Although disappointing that your natural BFPs have both been chemical, it is a hugely positive sign that your body has learnt what to do by itself. I am certain it is a good augur for your upcoming FET

    millie and spot - hope all continues to go well preggie ladies

    trying - getting big smiles thinking of your little one starting to go into the final roasting stage Hope you're feeling great and really positive

    AFM - have no idea what might or mightn't be going on. AF is due in the next couple of days. The last several transfers it has shown up before preg test. Had an awful sleep last night, doubtless the combined effect of various drugs (both progesterone and steroids cause sleeplessness?) and the mental torture of the late stages of the 2WW. At the stage where just want to know either way. Also not sure I can go through this two more times. If no luck this time might just put the last 2 back in at the same time and see what happens.

    mum4nay...that is just so tough for you....how inconsideret of the pead.....you would think they put all the resaurce to help as if he had problems then rather to get a all clear later on would be better....understand your frustration...big hugs....
    I might just stating the obvious here...(????) but have your tired for the young mr different type of bottles????? Our boy was too so very hungry and it took a lot of buying different bottles before he was happy....for him it made a massive difference to buy really super soft teets...like medela bottles...their plastic teets are so very soft and archie could suck better on it...plus slightly different shape (more like a nipple) (after buying about 6 other brands....sigh!!!!)...when he got to 4 motnhs old he still loves the super soft teets, but like to long and skinny "nipple" teets....as woolworth cheap bottles (3 for $6)...he still have them....
    And as he early child hood centre nurses kept saying to us....you cant over feed a baby...whatever they cant digest...they will spew it up....
    Hope you can get it all working for you!!!

    Starfish....oh dear women...I think you have been such inspirational woman in you always very optemistic approch to yourself and to all of us...sometimes it is just hard to keep it all up and that is OK. It has been a long long journey for you both and lots of hurdles....it is not strange to have a low period and a feeling of dispair......
    But you are on the right track, I am sure, I hope the little holiday with your DH will give you some you-time so you can start happy with your next cycle....and getting closer to that bfp very very soon....hugs

    Slinky.....I hope it is a great sign.....I was so very very tired when I got my bfp....couldnt stay awake..and it when on for months....lol
    FX for you my sweet......

    warning - me-post coming up....

    No AF yet. I'm not normally one for HPTs but I did one just now and it was negative. It's 10dpt. It should be showing positive by now, if it was, shouldn't it? Suspect it is just the drugs holding AF back. BT in the morning so not long to wait. But - .WHY is this not working??????????????????

    *Lurker Alert*

    Sorry ladies to crash your thread, but I just had to stop by with hugs for Starf1sh . Putting your FET on hold & seeking a 2nd opinion are without doubt the best things to do. But in the meantime, the agony of waiting for answers & the biological clock ticking over another year, are incredibly difficult to endure . I'm constantly bewildered by the setbacks that land in your path , its over & above what anyone should have to cope with. Yet you absorb it all & come out fighting... you are the epitome of the LTIVFWW. Thinking of you and hoping that from your next AF, your body cooperates flawlessly and your BFP is followed by the smoothest, most uneventful pregnancy ever!

    And while I'm here... Slinky, I'm so pleased your thyroid is under control & hope the HPT is wrong in this case. Good luck for your BT tomorrow

    Hi to all the other lovely over 35-ers . I do love to follow this thread, the BFPs in here recently are so inspiring!

    Slinky, I'm so hoping that the sticks are wrong but completely understand your distress when you have moved heaven & earth to maximize your chances of a BFP. Crossing my fingers for you for tomorrow.

    Lindylou, you are too gorgeous for words & thank you for your unwavering support & beautiful words. All the signs pointing to a very definite BFP for you, hopefulIy can follow in the not too distant future xx

    My gorgeous friend & new mummy PinkButterfly, wishing you the happiest of birthdays for tomorrow!!! (sorry on my phone insert happy birthday smilie here

    Starfish, I have been exactly where you are and I know it can feel hopeless, and you can feel very angry and frustrated with the medical profession over miscarriage management in this country (which is creating far more cases of Ashermans and infertility, usually with surgeons basically unaware of the risks of surgical vs medically managed miscarriage and therefore failing to inform their patients - like you and me - of the risks). But if you have been monitoring the Asherman's group you will know the stories regularly posted there of women who get in to see an A-lister like Dr V and he is able to help them create an endometrium hospitable to implantation, and they go on to become pregnant and deliver healthy babies. One thing that I thought might give you a different perspective is what my current obs said to me, which is that not only does scar tissue itself cause infertility and miscarriage (she thinks it is a much greater cause of miscarriage than is often recognised), even where the pregnancy is ongoing scarring and thin endometrium can contribute to life-endangering complications like placenta accreta. If there is one positive thing you can look at it is that you are doing the best to make sure that not only is your uterus capable of hosting implanting, it will also be capable of nourishing a healthy pregnancy - or two! Hang in there and feel free to vent - I still cherish this thread for the willingness of everyone here to let me be as obnoxiously negative and self-pitying as I needed to be - to let it out in a safe place - so that I could pick myself up again and get back on the IVF journey. I hope that Dr V is able to give you some positive answers when you see him on the 29th, and also that you have a lovely relaxing time at Byron

    Slinky, I'm just so hoping that the HPT is wrong! Thinking of you.
