Good luck today amysan!!! I can definitely understand how you are feeling right now, was in the same boat my last cycle. praying for big numbers for you today xoxo
Zakmick, sorry to hear your period has gone on for so long hopefully it will start to settle down soon.
I think I will be doing cycle around the same time as you! Going to have one normal period then start up again after that. But my cycles are probably going to be irregular after m/c so not entirely sure.
Are you a teacher?? Just wondering cause u mentioned school holidays and not having to work - Im a teachers aide and after school care worker and really appreciated the school holidays too! Couldn't have come at a better time for me.
Take care, I hope your knee surgery goes well xxx

Not sure if I'm in the right place, and I'm sorry if I'm not. Wasn't really sure where to go. I'm 7.5 weeks pregnant after 2nd cycle of IVF and nearly 18 months of trying (12 of those doing various types of fertility treatment).
I had a scan yesterday, and have been told I will miscarry within the week and, if I don't, that I may need a curette next week.
There is a heartbeat, but it's too slow (80) and the baby is measuring a week behind. The FS thinks there is no hope.
We're devastated. It's taken so long to get a BFP and now I'm going to lose it. I cant stop crying, and I don't know when it will stop hurting. The worst part is thinking that right now my baby is alive, but I've been told it will die. There's nothing I can do to save it.
DH was so excited and positive about this pregnancy. We feel like we've been in a black TTC hole for so long, and we had a glimmer of light, and now it's worse than ever. It's so unfair.
We have frozen embryos, and will try again asap, but right now we have to wait for this to end. I wish it would be over quickly if it's got to end.
Some of your stories and your great attitudes make me hope I can get there too, but this is all so raw at the moment.

Good Morning to All,
Zakmick – 14 days! That’s so horrible.. I hope it stops soon for you.! Is it still painful?
Amysan - that’s exciting. I love Friday the 13th – it’s a good day. I had my last EPU on Friday the 13th April. Good Luck for BT – sending lots of high number vibes your way .
GirlX – welcome really is not the right word – because we all wish we didn’t have to be here, but we are always here to listen and the ladies here are amazing. I’m so sorry this has happened to you – sending lots of hugs your way. Xx
Hope everybody has a great Friday!
Dandelion, yes a CRT, have gone back to teaching after 5 yrs off working as a social worker. I'm actually really enjoying being back in the classroom. Would be nice to do a transfer around the same time.Thanks for the knee well wishes..this time next week I'll be in theatre..
Jems: it's not painful anymore, I'm just still tired. It's nearly finished - about freaking time!!
Girlx: my heart is breaking for you and DH, we thought our last pregnancy was the one too, we finally saw a HB and then to find out at 9 wks, five days after US it had passed away. I couldn't understand it, 5 days earlier everything was perfect.
Is there any chance of a miracle?? I would be struggling too, thinking its alive the Heart is beating lets give it a chance... But what I'm reading is there's little hope..but just a glimmer of hope can get you far..
If you do have to go down the path of a d&c can you ask for a karotype test of the embryo- it gave us so many answers..and closure too..that's if you haven't had this done before.
The results we got helped decide on the protocol for the next FET.
You have been through such a long journey, and you have every reason to think that's that this was your time- we start to finally get excited and it's just ripped from us..it's so unfair!!
I'd find a boxing bag, or buy a bag of apples and throw them at a wall just to release some of the anger..yell, scream, and do the whole selfish thing it's 'not fair' BECAUSE it isn't!!
We are all here for you xxx
GirlX can you get some accupuncture or Reiki or something? I think at least you'll know you did everything you could. My heart really goes out to you. Having such a tragedy drag out seems so cruel. I'd want it over quickly too. Fingers crossed for you that a miracle happens and I'm glad you have other embryos still there to give you hope for a brighter future.
Thank you. It's good to know other people understand, even though it's awful that any of us have gone through it.
No, the FS was pretty adamant about there being no hope. I'd like to hope for a miracle, but I think it would be worse to cling to that and have it not happen.
Testing sounds like an idea. The FS said it was probably a chromosomal abnormality, which he said is very common.
And I hadn't thought about acupuncture. My usual coping method would be a large glass of wine (!) but I can't really do that yet! Acupuncture may help though.
Yes girlx I highly recommend the acupuncture and get the testing done if it heads done that path. Mine was a chromosomal abnormality, ask the FS to put bulk bill on the test, mine did and I haven't paid anything. X
GirlX- We have all had our losses, at various stages. So this is the place to find support from those who understand and support. It tears your heart out, I know that. At first I would just suddenly start sobbing at any given moment. Time has eased things, but I will never forget my lost baby. Be kind to yourself while you face this terrible time- waiting to see what happens makes the 2WW look like nothing. I will keep you in my thoughts and truely hope that a miracle happens for your baby and next scan shows it was all a false alarm.
HUGE HUGS xoxox
