    Melameen, was thinking about you yesterday. I hope that all went as well as it could.

    ilostmyangel - sorry don't have a maybe baby. Hope that you feel a bit better today - AF symptoms are just so joyous
    I was feeling bloated, back ache, cramping etc and thought that maybe I was headed for my first AF after Veronica but today I feel ok again. hmm will just have to wait I guess, it's been 6 weeks tomorrow so I'll have to ask my OB how long it usually takes to get back to normal (anyone know??).

    Well i went in for my check up today at the hospital and they said i was "complete" so no D&C for me. It has been a rugged 5 or so days, i just wish the back ache would go away. Am going to go to work tomorrow for a few hours and see how i go otherwise i think i may not ever show up again.

    The doctor told me not to try to get pregnant again until i have had one full cycle, which is fine by me but i think DH would like to try straigh away - dont know if i am even interested as a little bit on edge that i dont want this to happen again.

    My daughter has taken it really well , took her about 3 days, she kept coming and asking questions which i answered and she is all for us trying again - or getting a puppy dog.

    melameen - I hope your D&C went well and that there was no complications, or pain

    ilostmyangel - i am so not up with any of these things, but am going to keep track of my cycles etc this time (as i had no idea last time) and was going to look into getting myself some tools as it where but have no idea where to get them - chemist i suppose.

    Poppess - my mum had 3 m/c - one was a SB - she told me that AF turned up on time with the m/c but it was a good 8 weeks before it turned up after the SB.

    Hi everyone. Pretty sure that I'm joining you. It ain't over till its over but in reality its not looking all that hopeful. I have spent the last hour rather teary looking at your posts and am just gutted that we have to go through this. I am only five weeks and only knew that I was pregnant for three days so its not like I was wedded to the knowledge that I was pregnant and became too emotionally wrapped up in it. That makes it easier. I can only imagine (well, I can't really) how hard it would be if it were a few weeks down the track or even further than that as some of you have experienced.

    What I really came here to say was that I think you are all amazing and strong and I can't imagine dealing with what you've dealt with. I have just got a taster of it but some of you have really had a rough road. All the best to everyone.

    Hi girls,

    TKK - so sorry for your loss. Doesn't make a difference how long you knew about your pregnancy, I think all our hopes and dreams for your future baby are there from the minute you find out! And to have them taken away from you hurts like mad

    mum of annaliese - hope the backache goes away, glad your body has done the job and you don't have to go the D&C route. Also good that your daughter is coping a bit better. Are you going to get her the puppy?

    Poppess - thinking of you today. Hope you are alright?

    AFM - I was back to work today after spending a day on the couch yesterday. This D&C has been so different to my last, hardly any pain except for cramps the evening after I had it done and not much bleeding. I was still terrified and don't wish it on anyone but it was definitely less traumatic than my last. Now if only the big sore boobs, up and down hormones and bloated belly would go away so I can stop thinking about what I am not then things would be getting a bit more normal. Everyone has been tiptoeing around me at work which is good. I still can't be bothered with dealing with anyone.

    Okay I am pretty flat today, don't have much news. Roll on specialists appointments so we can maybe get some answers and get the all clear to try again. Not saying we will right away, but knowing that drs say you aren't allowed is niggling in the back of my mind the whole time!

    Love to you all

    Em xx

    TKK sorry about your loss

    AFM - Well the OB said that my uterus has gone back to normal and that my scar has healed well. The tests they ran all came became back negative and no chromosome abnormalities etc... (we only had tests done on the placenta, cord and a small bit of tissue) He said that my next pregnancy wouldn't be classifed as high risk but that I could get a few extra scans along the way if I wanted and he'd recommend a c-section at 38 wks next time. He asked me if I had any questions and I said only one and I know that you can't give me an answer for that one... I survived the appointment but burst into tears in the car on the way home.

    Then I went to Medicare - the lady in front of me had been at my antenatal class and was there with her new baby (so didn't need to see that today), they then inform me that I can't claim for the tests they ran as Veronica was born sleeping. I think this is just so ridiculous that I'm going to write to my local MP - I know it won't change anything but it'll make me feel better.

    And to top off my day I had a fight with my work payroll people because they've taken a mth to convert my half paid Mat leave to full pay and were making me feel bad about them having to change it! I informed them as to why I had to change it and they soon apologised and quickly fixed everything up. I feel a bit nasty now that I actually took pleasure in making them feel bad...

    Hey Melameen, we must of posted about the same time.

    Glad to hear that the procedure was less traumatic this time. I'm just so sorry that you had to go through it again. When do you get to see the specialist?

    ttk I am sorry for your loss. Like others have said a loss is a loss and you should give yourself the time to grieve. Poppess I can't imagine how hard your day has been and my heart aches for you. Sending hugs your way.

    Poppess I am glad to hear you survived the day but what a terrible one for you! I just read your post to my hubby and he can't believe how devastating a loss it must be for you both. So sad for you to come out with no answers on your tests and then to have to run into the lady from medicare and to be given uphill from your payroll dept! Don't feel bad about giving them a hard time they should have realised you wouldn't just be changing it on a whim! Sending you so many hugs.

    I'm going to see the specialist on 9 Feb, glad it is only a few weeks away. I also have a non related (well we think it is non related) bladder specialist apt next Wednesday... I don't think it would have anything to do with the m/c but I suppose anything not working in my nether regions is of concern.

    Cheekime it is implantation and you conceived on your wedding night. Wouldn't that be a fairy tale

    Off to get dinner on the go... have a good night everyone.

    Just wanted to quickly say hello and thanks to everyone for the . You know, I've been pretty okay about this but have cracked a few times today which I didn't expect to do.

    I appreciate your letting me grieve here - I kinda don't have anywhere else to do it and I'm doing a fair bit of putting on a tough face at home and at work. I must admit I feel a bit lame (which is not the right word but you get my drift) as I was only five weeks along but you've been so kind as to put it into perspective that a loss is a loss no matter how early - we'd just been trying to get preg for a fair while that it was hard to have a few days of wohoo followed so suddenly by uhoh. Thanks ladies, just having a rough day I guess.

    And I agree - Cheekime - I'm hoping you are living the fairytale That's a pretty sweet story to read at the end of a really tough thread.

    Thanks hey.

    Default Hi TTK

    From the moment we see those 2 lines on that pregnancy test, our lives change forever - we dream, we hope, we fall in love with the fact that we are pregnant - we feel blessed, we feel close to our partners, fiancee's, husbands - we dream of a future filled with little pitter patters of feet - we tell ourselves to believe and hope because we are afraid that if we don't - then it wont work out - so when we lose that dream, taken from us so cruelly - it hurts and although that hurt does get a little less every day, we always wonder - what if - i would have had my 20 week scan last week, i would be so pregnant by now - i would be holding that baby. We will never forget but it will get easier and eventually like so many of the others on here will have healthy pregnancies and some more of that hurt will go away - i know for me, at the 12 week scan when i can show my fiancee a healthy bub with a strong heartbeat - that's when the next stage of healing will happen for us, until then - we get on with life. 7 or 8 weeks on, I am feeling much better and believe it or not i didn't t hink about the baby once at our wedding - i didn't think what if.

    Anyway, here's hoping that we both fall again quickly.

    hugs, lisa
