    Hi Ladies,

    I'm 38, second miscarriage last week...

    We have been lucky that we have been able to conceive fairly quickly which is good because I was told due to my age that it may be hard. But when I fall pregnant I just can't seem to hold the baby and miscarriage in early stages.

    My last miscarriage happened last week and I'm still recovering from it. I saw the gyno for the first time yesterday and he has given me a list of blood tests to have done (one I complete this miscarriage and have my next cycle).

    He said to see if anything comes back from the bloods. Hopefully there may be something there that could be fixed and we may be able to have a healthy pregnancy. My fingers are crossed. I hate the waiting, will now have to wait another 4-6 weeks or so before I can even get the bloods done.

    He said the next stage after that would be chromosonal testing, but that would only tell me why we miscarriage, not how we could fix it.

    Afer that would be IVF. Something that my husband and I don't think we could go through, both financially or emotionally.

    We want nothing more than to have a little bub and all this is just scary stuff. My husband is trying to be positive and just take one thing at a time. I'm trying, but it's so hard not to do all the "what ifs".

    I'm overweight (about 90kgs) and have put on more in this last stressful week. I think it's time I change my thinking, get out and exercise, start feeling better about myself and yes try and be positive! It's hard but I need to be strong. I am extremely lucky that I have a supportive husband and family.

    Hi Maddy
    Welcome and sorry to hear of your bad news, take care of yourself and hope that good news is just around the corner. I cant even imagine whats it like but my Dr always says to me, sometimes you just need to be kind to yourself and I think that's ace advice.

    Gentoo, Im laughing at your sex worker comment. I know what you mean, no matter how much you love it sometimes its just exhausting!!

    I picked up my drugs today so all set to start the injections tommorow night. Did anyone choose to go morning? Im not sure of the pros or cons of time of day.. Im on 200ml of Puregon and first scan on Monday so we'll see how it goes

    Gentoo - AF is due for me next Wednesday, so one more week of waiting.

    Vivre - I was told to do the Puregon injections between 7 and 9pm and the other one between 9 and 10pm. No idea why it matters but they were pretty clear on times for me.

    Maddyangel - welcome!! Lovely to have you join us, though I'm sorry for your loss. I can't imagine how hard that is. I agree that being kind to yourself is the only way. We need to look after ourselves and our own health first and foremost, as well as our relationships. I strongly believe in that. In the long run it's the best thing we can do for our future bubs/children. So take care of you!

    Hi Ladies,

    I have been missing in action as I don’t have a lot to add at the moment.

    To everyone that has started/about to start IVF I wish you all the best. I hope it is a short process for you.

    Gentoo, your comment about being a sex worker made me laugh. Did you end up telling your mum? I wouldn’t know what to do in that situation. if I told my mum, it would help but then she would be mad I didn't tell her at the time. way.

    Welcome Maddyangel. Sorry to hear about your miscarriages. I hope they can find a way to help you.


    We have to go another month without trying and then start again next month. I have enjoyed the acupuncture and so far consistent cycles and a 14 day luteal phase so keeping my fingers crossed it keeps going that way and doesn’t go out of whack as soon as I stop the acupuncture and herbs. I will miss the acupuncture but not the yucky herbs.

    byline! Great to hear from you!! I am amazed at the success of acupuncture. I haven't really tried natural therapies etc much because they're hard to access where I live, but to have that great effect is great....and waaaay better than using drugs to do the same things. I hope you find one more month off okay. I hope you're spoiling yourself rotten with all the fun things while you can

    Thanks for the welcome ladies!

    Byline, I tried herbs to get a regular cycle and the first month I did, I had a 28 day cycle. I'm thinking of trying it again as my cycle has been all over the place. i haven't tried acupuncture but might give that a go. The herbs are disgusting aren't they! But worth it!

    I went back to work today after being off for a week, recovering from my miscarrage. I work with 6 females & 4 males, small company (1 is lesbian, 2 are 38 and don't want kids, one is early 30's and is undecided and the other is late 20's and has 2 kids)... well the one with 2 kids told me that she is pregnant, about 5-6 weeks. I congratulated her then burst into tears and told her I had a miscarriage. I'm so happy for her, but it's so hard, now it's right in my face. It is tough getting over it as it is without having it so close. I don't really like my job and the place I work so that is going to make it even tougher being there. I've only been there a couple of months and have been trying to hang in there while planning baby. Oh dear...

    Sorry to hear your news MaddyAngel so I hope you have some success or the information you need really soon. This is a great thread....full of nice supportive ladies, and I hope we can help you out when you need to vent....which we all do sometimes!

    Welcome back Byline.

    Gentoo, I also laughed at your sex worker comment. I so know where you're coming from!!!

    As for me...we have seen Fertility specialist again today and will be starting IVF(ICSI) in November so we can get one cycle in before Christmas. No BCP for me either so I was worrying about that for nothing. It is an 'antagonist' cycle (I still need to google that). He recommended ICSI given our only known issue is abnormal sperm morphology. I will be seeing the nurse sometime in next few weeks to learn what to do.

    RoRo, I hope your egg collection went well today!!??

    Hi ladies

    Welcome, maddyangel! I'm sorry to hear of your losses. I hope we can support you over the coming weeks or months, and you get good news soon.

    My egg pickup this morning went really well, until I puked in the car on the way home. :-P. We had a nerve-wracking wait at the clinic beforehand, then they took us into the small operating room, put an IV in my left arm and a pulse meter on my finger, and my memory of the next bit is hazy - an internal scan and then some pain like cramps. DH was holding my hand - he did very well :-). They got six eggs, one for each follicle. Yay! We are doing ICSI so that happened this afternoon, and now the eggs are germinating away in a petri dish somewhere. They'll call me tomorrow morning to tell me how many fertilised.

    I was pretty woozy all afternoon. We stopped to get Wendy's for lunch on the way home (45 min drive) and the smell made me vomit. Luckily the clinic had predicted that and given me a little bucket, or DH might never have forgiven me.

    Vivre, how was your first shot?

    Byline, great to hear from you and I'm glad the acupuncture is working! One more month to go will just fly by, I hope.

    Wow congrats Ro, thats great news, although not so great on the puke front!

    I have a history of puking given any opportunity so Im now slightly nervous. When I had my lap surgery the next morning when I got out of bed to go to the loo I thought I was going to pass out, vomit and not make it the 10 metres.
    So might grab the vomit bag they gave me and keep it handy

    You are correct, first needle for me tonight and all went well. Its pretty like a diabetic injection although the needle is slightly larger but not by much. Same process though so no dramas. I still cant believe its all happening and wondering when Im going to feel some of the symptoms

    Byline, I did acupuncture for about 7 months. ive just stopped recently just because Im having schedule problems. Ive decided to have one IVF cycle and then depending on how it goes maybe start it again
    In my experience some of the herbs are worse then others. My hubby is also happy I no longer stink out the house with all the concoctions.
    I did however have loads of period pain prior to starting the herbs & acupuncture and aside from mild cramping now I feel like a new person.
    Hope it helps

    Wow! What a momentus day on our little forum. MrsErinR, that's a big step for you to be heading towards IVF officially. RoRo, I'll be thinking of your little bundles in that petri dish tonight and wishing them all the best to grow strong and healthy little embryos! Glad to hear you got through quite well. And Vivre, the first needle is a biggy too. We'll be one week apart I reckon. My first one should be this time next week. Go the over 35's today!!!

    Maddyangel, I'm so sorry that a difficult time just got harder for you. As MrsErinR said, feel free to vent any time you need. We all need it and this is a wonderfully supportive place to do it.

    Keep going over 35's. I still believe we'll be together in a parenting forum one day and it will be SO worth it
