    Thank you so much for your thoughts Michelle and Pinkblue.

    Mammalinz I had my procedure today so understand how you may be feeling tonight. I had a terrible weekend waiting to be honest and found it hard controlling my emotions. I was extremely anxious over the thought of today and have to admit I froze for a split second as I walked into the surgery theatre. I also remember having tears in my eyes as I went under but thankfully that is the last I remember. The hospital staff and my FS (who did the procedure) were so kind and assured me that once I was under another scan would be done first just to double check Friday's news that the heartbeat had stopped. I knew there was no hope it was wrong but I so appreciated the gesture and them letting me know they were doing that. Physically I am doing fine so far - just some very minor cramping. I was supposed to go back to work tomorrow but I think I might take it off as more than anything I just feel drained. I am glad the procedure is over - in some way I think it means I can now really start saying goodbye. I don't know yet what is to come and how I'll cope but just going to take one day at a time.

    I will be thinking of you tomorrow xx

    JTM - thank you so much for your post. I feel much better now - I was / am scared re: not having another scan and to know they probably will is so reassuring .. like you .. I know deep down it is over but it will be reassuring. My FS isnt very nice .. (caring/sharing) so thank goodness for my partner.
    I am glad to hear you are feeling ..'okay,' yes I am imagine it is draining but will allow the opp for us to move on.. whatever that may be

    take care of you

    JTM - well it is over ... and I cant say it was too much fun. Thanks to you - I asked for a scan - and with 10-12 people standing in the operating room - I had another scan before they put me under. It was clear.. no signs of life but so reassuring (I know that sounds odd, but it was). Ive been told there will be a biopsy ? on the bub to see what went wrong and this will take 6 weeks. I was also told I would have to wait 6 weeks before I can try again. Have people been told a similar thing? My FS was very nice to me in the end - so I feel terrible saying he wont be very nice or supportive - cause he was!
    I feel flat, disappointed and a bit dazed.. but I guess this is normal

    I'm so sorry for your losses ladies x

    Sorry I haven't been in to update after my first post - my hcg levels dropped fine and I've got AF back two days ago. Yesterday was a month since my miscarriage. We should have been announcing around now :-(

    The doc I saw told me that it's policy for them to tell us to wait 3 months although he said that there was no real evidence for that timeframe. I felt the same way after my m/c. Still do sometimes a month later.

    I was told we could start as soon as I felt comfortable the first time and that was at 4 weeks. The second time I was told to wait at least 1 cycle more for my heart than anything (that's literally what she said) but I TTC'd from 2 weeks. I'm onto my second cycle following this. Good luck!

    Its quite varied the 'waiting' advice I've found. After my first d&c my gp said 3mths (was 12.5wks), this time the hospital ob who treated me said there is absolutely no reason to wait. Its just a matter of feeling emotionally ready (was just past 10wks with the 2nd)

    Smallpotatos - a small consolation that your cycle returned to normal quickly for you. I find myself thinking of all the 'milestones' too. Would have been past the half way mark already (gosh time has gone quickly)

    Hello everyone - thanks for your replies.. I keep playing in my head the due date bub is/was due.. I kind of wish I didnt know. ... and know the 12 / 13 week is coming up which would have been when I started to tell people. Mostly I feel I have let my daughter down.. the only opp to provide a sibling has slipped through my fingers. At least if she ever asks I can let her know we tried our very best. I think back now and think how stupid i was to even think I was going to be so lucky twice with IVF .. I even feel greedy. I am sure all these feelings are normal

    what does TTC and AF stand for ? To try to conceive ?
    AF - period?

    JTM- I hope you are okay.. I am thinking of you.
    Chillies & Smailpotatoes - thanks !
