    Swede - I'm so incredibly happy for you, and think your levels are really good What a relief for you. I know you won't stop worrying until you see that heartbeat, and I totally understand. That was the most frightening scan for me too. But then the whole process is a waiting game, and we just keep our fingers It sounds like Archie will have a little sibling to cuddle soon Congratulations again

    Starf1sh - What a wonderful ending to a stressful few days Isn't hearing that heartbeat a precious moment? It really is very special and you will never forget that scan Spotting is really common in pregnancy Starf1sh and it looks like it is just a part of yours. That clot certainly helps explain things. My girlfriend had a clot and bleeding for months, and gave birth to healthy twins at the end of it all. It was just a 'side issue' and bled out eventually. Not easy for you though At the end of the day, you are expecting a beautiful, healthy baby!!! Wooohhoooooo!!!!!!!

    Crofty - You poor thing. The 2ww is so hard. I'm really hopeful that you are UTD as we speak I hope it will be a very special Christmas for you both

    PW - You know how I feel about your news!! Christmas has come early The best news ever!

    So as expected its another failed cycle - it doesn't get any easier with failed transfers at the age we're at- why is it so easy for some!!!! I always thought I was a good person, maybe I'm not

    thx for all your support - now I just need to get through DHs downward spiral as it hits him harder and takes him longer to move on with life - very hard week and weekend ahead I feel

    oh Crofty! I am so very sorry. That is heartbreaking news. DOnt be hard on yourself, it is a very tough journey, and so unfair. It just sucks when things dont work out after so long and so many tries. Wished I could say anything that made it easier, but I cant. Just want to send the biggest cyber hug. It sounds like you need one big squishy one

    Crofty, I'm so sorry love A long journey is really tough as many here can attest but it sounds like you have a few more stones to overturn yet. When you have regathered your strength research other avenues to explore, ask the girls here for guidance, ask lots of questions of your FS, get more testing and I second Yin Yang that most often perseverance wins out in the end xx

    Picky!! lovely, so nice to see you back and under the best of circumstances. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Are you having further bts from here? Also curious if the treatment for adhesions for PID is similar to Asherman's? I had quite a few issues with my lining even after having a number of surgeries to make the uterus scar free but I did manage to get pregnant on a 5.5-6mm lining (and I think I read yours wasn't much thicker?) so it is most definitely possible!

    Swede, GREAT numbers!!! YAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!! Thinking of you for repeat bt, it is a very anxious wait for each little milestone but I'm really hoping this is IT!

    Millie
    , thanks honey for the reassurance I am actually quite calm now I know why I had the bleed. I am sure I will still be a quivering mess if it happens again, but it is definitely easier to deal with when you know there is a reason. As for your question a little while back about symptoms, I seriously can't remember ever being this tired! I have been in bed asleep by 9pm most nights! Big squeezes to darling Stella xx

    to everyone else

    Starfish - re treatment, I had two surgeries to remove adhesions, the scar tissue was external to the uterus as far as the lap/ hysteroscopies could tell, but as the initial acute infection was so serious I always felt it had to have damaged the myometrium. My lining is always thin and uneven, this cycle it was 6mm and there was a patch at the fundus where it was 6.4. I hope the embie found that spot, or that the Clexane will keep the blood around him flowy and nutritious if he starts to run out of elbow room. Sounds like you have already crossed that point, which is wonderful!

    I did put myself on high dose vitamin E for 3 months leading up to this cycle, in hope of softening up the uterus, so maybe that helped? Other than that I added an endometrial scratch biopsy, maybe that was what it needed? Who knows?

    Crofty - ((((((hug))))))

    YAAAAHHH Starfish!!!! Excellent news! Enjoy seeing your little bean again on friday. Yeah perserverence pays off eventually but I also think a bit of stubborness mixed in there as well!! This journey has definitely changed me...stronger for sure, but also changed my view of the medical world and health, dont take "No" for an answer and if one doctor wont or cant help you see another, then another, then maybe another!

    Swede, glad your DS is ok now what a scare he gave you. I forgot to thank you too for your lovely words of congrats I thank the heavens above everyday for bringing my little earth angel! Wonderful bt results, Congratulations!!

    Picky, Hi, another long-term struggler with a much deserved BFP...CONGRATULATIONS! enjoy

    Take care everyone
    YY

    crofty, so sorry hope you are doing ok and not being too hard on yourself. I do not know your history re what tests, health/fertility issues etc but it certainly wouldnt hurt seeing Dr Matthias as he will do all necessary testing and give appropriate treatment, and you just never know! If i could have my time over again i would liked to have had HEAPS of testing done at the start rather than just muddle on doing cycle after cycle, loss after loss, dollars after dollars making just small steps and gradual treatment changes. I know this game is a lot of trial and error but I think it could be moved along a lot quicker if doctors were more willing to do more testing and be more open to different drugs/treatment...heck for the sake of a quick blood test or minor surgery or a few extra pills it could save much time and money and pain. The cynic in me wonders about the whole ivf "business", there is a lot of money to be had with ivf and there are a lot of egos around! Dr M is not part of any ivf clinic and is very genuine (just another plug for him!! )
    At the end of the day its your life and burning desire to have a baby not the doctors....there is no harm in seeking 2nd opinions, 3rd opinions, 4th opinions etc.

    Sorry for the ramble, I just want you to feel that there is a lot of hope left...it just might be in a different direction. xxx

    Congrats starfish, happy all is looking good from your scan, good luck PW and sweedenie in the coming weeks leading up to your scans - hope your pregnancies go really well and smooth

    Thx everyone for your kind words and virtual hugs - just really down and more angry than sad at the moment - but we'll get through this (and then do another cycle - that I hope ends with some good news for once as its coming up to 2 years of the ivf f journey and I really didn't want to have to do another stim cycle, but I'll have too now-what this does to your body is terrible especially when I'm given the highest dose (450) of fsh and DHEA

    Starfish you made me cry again with your scan and hearing the heartbeat. What wonderful, wonderful news. Enjoy the encore tomorrow and take it all in
    Picky congratulations!! I loved the story about your 'wonky' embryo It sounds like it's already a little fighter, just like his/her mother. Go embie, go!
    Swede fantastic news about your BT and so relieved your son is okay!! Best wishes for the next BT and then the countdown to the scan, yay! Thinking of you and sending lots of
