MGC Bertie !! What a huge relief (for us lol) and for you guys !! Sounds like the little fella is right on target whoop whoop 😆
How's everyone else travelling? I've been lurking & reading/cheering along from the sidelines.
Leyshoja, I'm so sorry you had to go through such a complicated loss. It just seems the ultimate in cruelty that we go through so much trauma to get pregnant, only to have to go through more. I ended up in hospital with a bad miscarriage before my son. I bled for a long time & it took months for my HCg to come down, so we weren't even able to cycle straight away. I feel for you.
Bertie - so thrilled at reading your scan results. Cheering in the background x
Wow such a great bunch of strong, wise women in this thread!
Very happy for you @MGC Bertie and have everything crossed that everything continues on as it is supposed to. I've never seen a heartbeat, so I don't know what I'd do - I'm usually balling my eyes out before I even get on the table for a scan, so I guess that would be me again. Can't see that changing if I get another BFP! I think I'd fall off the table in shock if there was a heartbeat!
Sorry that you're having such a rough time @leyshoja, I'd just get hubby on the job right now and BD, might as well give it a shot and you can always clean him up after if it's a bit messy, lol :-)
Fingers crossed for everyone who is hanging onto their miracle bubs, and good luck for everyone cycling this month.
AFM, I'm doing my prednisone, thyroid, DHEA, melatonin, aspirin, anti-inflammatories, natural alternatives to Clexane (!) and just finished five days on Letrozole. I'm supposed to start FSH injections tomorrow but instead I'm going away with my DH for a few days and then will have a scan on Monday to see what my ovaries are doing and if the letrozole got anything much happening. From there I'll decide if we do a trigger shot and IUI, or just try naturally this month.
I'll also have to figure out if I can get my head around injectables if I don't get a BFP this month... We'll see.
See you in few days!

Hi all, congratulations Bertie, the first milestone in a beautiful and much wanted pregnancy.
Saw doctor yesterday and he said the chances of the fetus surviving are very low. Depressing. Having another scan on Monday and he said you'll know definitively by then. I have no bleeding yet, but it's depressing thinking I have a dying fetus in there.
The good conversation out of the appointment was that if we do try a stimulated cycle my odds are 18%. That's the odds for someone in the 40-44 age group. That's pregnancy of course. But you know miscarriage rates are also high, so live birth would be 12% I guess. He didn't talk about miscarriage though. But he did say we have a much better chance than naturally.
I'm hoping the next FET works though.
It's hard to be positive that it will happen. We'll only try one stim cycle. I have two beautiful boys and am very blessed. We could be spending time and money on the boys instead. But still feel sad about losing this one. But it's a lot easier than before my previous miscarriages as I have my ray of sunshines.
I will feel better, I will. Time, I guess.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
