    Kemily - How are you feeling? I hope you're well and your pregnancy so far has been uneventful! Is your scan coming up soon?

    dragongal77 - Thanks for your kind words, and also really appreciated your thoughtful PM when I first started bleeding. Did you ever get my reply, I think I may have an technical issue with sending replies over PM, as I can never find my replies in my sent items! How is your pregnancy going? How far along are you now?

    Sweetdreamers - Are you out there? Just wondering how you're going, hope you're well hun!

    AFM - Turns out I may have an ectopic pregnancy, not a miscarriage as I was told last week. When I went in yesterday for my follow up BT after the miscarriage, FS told me my levels have gone up so he thinks it may be ectopic. I am absolutely gutted as you can imagine! I just don't know what to do with myself... I am going in next Monday for another BT and scan to see what's going on with me...

    Nat- I did get your reply and I'm so sorry things have turned out the way they have for you. It totally sucks and its totally unfair that you have to go through this. I know words can't make you feel better just sending you lots of hugs and hope you get some answers soon. Xoxo

    sorry I've been off for so long. We've moved and Telstra really sucks!! But I'm back up and unfortunantly don't have any good news . Went to the emergency department last night bleeding and lost our little miracle.......just after we'd finished painting the nursery.

    Kemily - awesome news for you - very exciting. How is it all going?

    Nat - I'm sorry hun, it just sucks doesn't it. Have you made any 'moving forward plans'? I have no idea where to go from here - it's terrible.

    Well girls, let me know what else is on your mind.

    hi girls
    i just got this update and seem I have missed a few. Geez, there is so much terrible news. Am feeling for you a;;

    Nat, I'm so sorry to hear about the ectopic - you have had to deal with so much. So what has to be done now?
    and Sweetdreamers, oh, I am so so sorry to hear you lost your little baby. It is all just so unfair..
    Dragongirl - thanks for your message, what are you up to?

    Me. I've just been for another BT this morning as I have been bleeding for over a week, a combination of brown then red then these massive red blobs (that the nurse on the phone said she thought were thre wax from the pessaried coming out) and then pink and red, so it has been freaking me out. Will wait and see what the test results are this afternoon.

    Thinking and praying wishing for everyone

    sweetdreamers - I'm so so sorry to hear that...I actually cried when I read your post. You poor thing. I know you and DH are probably going through a really tough time right now, but just know we are here for you if you need to talk at any time. Sending hugs your way It's so hard to know how to move forward so just take the time you need to grieve and then decide what to do from here. When you feel like you are emotionally and physically ready, then give it another go, because I know it's only a matter of time for you. The positive is that you can get pregnant. If you feel up to it, ask your FS for all the miscarriage screening tests to rule out possible causes. This could very well be a one off, and miscarriages are so common even in the most fertile couples so whatever you do DON'T BLAME YOURSELF.

    Kemily - You poor thing, I hope the bleeding turns out to just be a scare and nothing more. How did you go? Did you hear back with your results? Has the bleeding subsided...I have my fingers firmly crossed for you...

    dragongal - Thanks for your kind words of support, I hope you are well...

    AFM - I had my BT & scan today and appt with FS. BT shows my levels haven't budged since last Wednesday. They are exactly the same which FS says can happen with ectopics. My scan shows that the embie is in my left fallopian tube. FS reccommends the injection to dissolve the pregnancy which in effect is a shot of chemo which means I would have to wait 3 mths before starting another cycle. My other option is a laparoscopy which could mean I lose my left tube if he can't remove the embryo without it. He said losing my tube would decrease the chances of a natural pregnancy but does not effect IVF pregnany success. Natural pregnancy doesn't effect us anyway because of DH's blockage which stops the sperm from coming through which is why we're doing IVF in the first place. If I do the laparoscopy, I can try again in about 5-6 weeks, once my period resumes. I feel like with an injection I will be waiting 3mths and going insane in that time, and I don't gain anything. Whereas even though the laparoscopy is alot more involved and I will have a longer recovery time, at least while FS is in there, he can have a look for endometriosis among other things, and at lease I gain some knowledge on how things are down there.


    Sorry for the novel! I'm a bit confused, we have to make a decision and call FS by midday tomorrow as he wants to do either the injection or the surgery on Wednesday morning cos he wants to prevent my tube from rupturing or internal bleeding whch would require emergency surgery that may not be as pleasant. FS prefers to do the injection cos it's more straightforward and doesn't want me to lose a tube if I don't have to. But I am leaning towards laparoscopy cos I was thinking of asking him to perform one on me anyway just to have a look at what's happening down there...plus I don't know if I could wait 3 whole months to try again.

    oh Nat - what a nightmare. I went through all the 'removal' options just today with my GP and Ob Specialist - and the injection option came up, although both said that they only offered this as a last resort (which to me says alot about how they feel with pumping you with chemicals in which you have to wait for at least 3 months to get out of your system!) I would lean to the laparoscopy if I was in that particular situation. My husband also has a blockage which means that IVF is our only way of conceiving anyway - so loosing a tube isn't an issue at all with your IVF process. My GP said to me today that the best advice she could give us is to get over the miscarriage by crying alot together and then move back into IVF and try again - nothing heals a lost baby quicker then another pregnancy that is healthy and makes term -and I completely agree with her. 3 months is a long time to be waiting to go through it all again.
    Obviously you need to do whats best for you and your DH though, I hope you get some sleep with your decision racing through your mind.

    Kemily - how are you going, Gawd I hope your doing ok??

    Dragongirl - thanks for your kind words, how are you going - I'm so happy that your dreams are finally a reality!!

    ASF - Had my D&C today, very emotional procedure and extremely emotional day for myself and DH. It's amazing how many tears one body can produce without the body shrivling up from dehydration! We've decided to go again when my next AF arrives, so we are looking forward to the future and making our dreams a reality.

    I hope all you gals are doing well. We are such strong women that we need to hold our heads up high with pride for what we can live through. to all...

    Hi,

    Nat, from the sounds of your situation I agree with you that the laparoscopy seems to be a good option - especially if you suspect there may be something else like endo in there. Also I know about the impatience and waiting 3 months would be so frustrating when you just want to keep on ploughing on. Have you decided on what to do?

    Sweetdreamers, well done on getting through yesterday. You sound like you are being amazingly strong through all this, and positive. How many weeks pregnant were you?

    Like I said to Nat a while ago, when I miscarried in '08, I conceived in the next cycle I did after that, and I know of others the same. I feel it was because the first pregnancy triggered / kick started something in my body and it had sort of worked out what it needed to be done. I really hope this is the case for both of you. Will you be doing fresh cycles or FETs?

    I am feeling so relieved. My BT results showed that my levels had risen well and finally today there is no blood - the first day since easter saturday..so feeling much more positive. Just wish that all you girls were too. Massive and for the next few months.

    Hi Kemily - I lost it just before 12 weeks. We were ment to have our 12 week ultrasound on Monday (yesterday) and on Saturday night I had a streak of blood when I wiped after having a wee - so we rushed to the emergency department. I was so stressed and was shaking violently from the shock, which probably really didn't help the situation. The doctor couldn't do anything, the bleeding stopped and then he sent us home and said come back if it starts gushing. Needless to say I didn't sleep a wink that night. My husband is building units for local doctors in town so Sunday morning he called the couple straight away and she said she would do an ultrasound for us, and thats were we found a baby with no heart-beat. So the last 3 days have been an absolute whirlwind! It's even harder going past the room we had just painted and started decorating.

    Kemily, I am so happy that the bleeding has stopped, thats really good news. I also feel very positive about the next IVF transfer, I have to go through all the jabs again which sucks, but I feel more focused on it. I know I can get pregnant which is a start!

    Also, I wanted to ask you when you M/C if you had it naturally or via D&C? I have done a bit of research on each option (even though i didn't have a choice), and there seems to be a benefit of having a D&C due to the 'good clean out' and people seem to have a better result in conceiving after. Just wondering about your experience.

    Thanks girls for your thoughts and prayers
