    I started off by going to my gp. She did blood tests for immunities and checked everything also ordered an ultrasound for me to check for pcos and ordered a sperm analysis for my DH. Turned out I do have pcos and so she referred me to a gyno and treated me with metformin in the meantime. Then at the gyno I got scans and blood tests again to confirm pcos and then I got prescribed clomid. I did 4 rounds and still haven't gotten pregnant so I decided to give up. I was lucky my gp was very understanding, I hear a lot of gps won't start investigating until you've been ttc at least a year.

    Have you been charting your temperatures? Is your cycle regular or all over the place?

    @lilyloubelle - I read about your unfortunate circumstance in the January DiG (friend is in there). Really sorry to hear what you're going through.

    @Bubbles1984 - I had the same when my BFF had her first bub. They'd been trying for around a year (though she'll only ever say 6 months when you ask her) and it was hard after she fell pregnant and then had the bub. Have distanced myself from a few people for that reason, to be honest. Trying to catch up with them all now, as I've come to terms that it's not their fault I can't fall pregnant as easily. Still hard though watching them with their "perfect" little families.

    Hi starframe. Ive temped on and off and used ovulation tests. Im pretty regular, only normally swaying a day or two.

    After this miscarriage going to get back into tracking it all, had an ultrasound with this pregnancy and according to tbe report was no mention of anything going on with my ovaries. Im pretty regular so havent really been worrying about my cycles so much. Im trying to take the miscarriage as a sign i got pregnant and that for whatever reason their was a problem and nature fixed it.

    I started with the gp too - she ordered semen analysis for dh and day 21 progesterone blood tests for me to check ovulation.

    You're right though, the miscarriage shows you can get pregnant, and I've read that you're usually extra fertile in the couple of months after a miscarriage so hopefully things will happen again for you quickly!

    As for distancing yourself from others, there's one friend I just can't bring myself to be around - she's had three kids in the time we've been trying, all accidents, and the last one she was devastated when she found out. I just have to avoid her because I can't handle it.

    I think your plan is a good one lily. I do hope the miscarriage is over quickly for you and that the next couple of months brings you a sticky bub. It sounds like everything is okay cycle wise and given you did get pregnant that would suggest to me that hubby's sperm is ok I reckon keep on with your plan of losing weight and BDing every second day and hopefully your stay here will be nice a short

    Welcome Lily, I'm so, so sorry to hear about your miscarriage. If you ever need to talk or vent we are all here. Sadly I know exactly what it feels like as I had one in very similar circumstances as yours & it broke my heart for a long time there. I hope you are doing ok, well as ok as you can be doing. Have they spoke about doing a D&C for you so you don't have to keep waiting? That's what I ended up with.

    Del, you poor thing 8 years. This Oct will be 4 years for us & that's been hard enough.

    We've also had people to tell us just to adopt like it's so easy to do. I just laugh now because DH & I would dearly love a baby & it doesn't have to be our genetic make up for us to love it to bits. I wish adoption was a lot easier because we both wouldn't hesitate going down that path if it were. There's a lot of babies & children here in our own country plus overseas who need homes & we would happily give them one but it's just to difficult & financially draining. We've got 3 close friends who have adopted & everything inc it took them a minimum of 4 years & cost over $40,000, that's just so unfair!

    I want to try and wait it out naturally. I'm not too happy with the risks involved for a d&c. My doc is happy for me to wait a few weeks, if nothing will come up with a better plan. As my sac was only measuring 7 weeks, might be able to get away with just medication to help things along.....but doc is happy for us to wait a little bit longer.

    Oh and adoption is such a lengthy process, I know a friend of mine was looking into international adoption... And so s if the conditions and waiting periods are full on

    That's good that your doctor is supporting what you're wanting to do. I'm sure they'll monitor you closely & make sure you're body is doing what it's meant to now. If you do end up going down the path of a D&C & have any questions, just let me know.
