Thanks Hun. I honestly feel like we're the 2 veterans here who can't get pregnant. That is such a good idea. Pity it'll only be the two of us on it. But at least we know what each other is going through. And as for the giving up part. Don't you even think about it. It's not in the cards for you to give up.
So with that said, i've sending all my love, luck and baby dust your way. xxx MWAH!!

Hi girls! Wow it's been a long time since I even came onto bubhub! So my update is that my gorgeous little princess arrived on November 1 by emergency c section at 34 weeks and 5 days due to threatened uterine rupture! Was a very scary experience but Piper needed no assistance when she was born and only spent 4 long days on the nicu! She is now 3 months old and is smiling like crazy! She is the most amazing little girl in the world! Ok may be a little biased but I am so in love with her! After everything I went through to get her each smile she gives makes all those years and tears worth it! My family is now complete!
I am so sorry that you girls are still having trouble! I really hope you get your little bundles soon! Kez I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope you can pick yourself up to give it another go! Big hugs to you all xxxxxx

Hi anyone out there,
Not sure if anyone still reads this thread but could really use some help and feel a bit funny about going to the general TTC.
my story is in my signature below, but to summarise in the last 3 years I've;
Found out I've got PCOS
Had 3 months of Clomid and conceievd
Miscarried at 11 weeks
Went again on the Clomid after a short break and conceived after 4 months
Miscarried at 9 weeks
Had a break, conceived naturally, found out at same time it was ectopic
had laprascopy had left tube removed
had another break, conceived naturally, found out at the same time it was ectopic
as caught early on was able to have methotrexte injection and had to use protection for 3 months
tried for 1 month didn't work so have gone on the pill, as going on overseas trip in June and don't want to be in first trimester for trip.
Now not sure what to do, we have started to look into IVF to start in July/august after our trip, but I'm having second thoughts about it. I know it will help as the egg doesn't have to travel down the tube and might get stuck, but doesn't help with having miscarriages or it can still be ectopic as it can move once implanted.
i guess my question to anyone out there that might have some advice is what would you do if you were me? Start IVF pay all the money and go through all the complexity of it and hope to get a result that works? Or give the natural thing another go, with most likely using Clomid as cycles to irregular without, and just hope it gets through the tube, and if that doesn't work after a couple of months start IVF? Only thing is I feel like I've been waiting forever for this (although I know there will be many out there that have a longer story than mine) and I just want it to happen already. But on the other hand IVF kind of feels like giving up, like admitting my body isn't adequate to do it itself (although I'm grateful I have the option as I know there are many that dont). I'm just not sure I'm ready for IVF. Lately when talking to IVF specialist and meeting with nurse I just feel like IVF is more for people that can't get pregnant (don't want to offend anyone or anything) and I've been pregnant 4 times now and the reasons it hasn't worked for me, aren't thing IVF can't fix really. Plus I know I have age on my side.
Anyway sorry for the long winded story and I'm very mindful of the fact that I am lucky to have option, but any advice/suggestions would be great!

Hi ya Babe! It's great to hear from you again.
I know what you mean, by getting away from all the social networking sites. I did too.
Quite a bit has been happening actually. I've been doing Jenny Craig now for about 6 months to lose weight so that we can finally do IVF because being denied treatment once was enough for me. So I am extreamy happy to say that within those 6 months I have lost about 12kgs so all up I have lost 36kgs! I'm now sitting at 91.1kgs and i'm definitely not stopping there. I feel so much better within myself about my weight now for the first time in years. Although i'm not liking the excess saggy skin I now have. But I guess, it's better than being obese.
To top off the weight loss, DH and I have an appointment with the FS on the 21st June. We are so excited and I keep pinching myself to see if i'm dreaming. It's definitely been a long time coming so we're hoping that I could well and truely be UTD by the end of the year. That is if everything goes according to plan and the man upstairs lets me have this one.
On the downside, I have hurt my knee again and will be seeing the Ortho surgeon for the third time thurdsay even so he can compare my x-ray, MRI and CT scan to see whether or not I do need surgery. If I do, then it's a partial knee reconstruction for me and 6-8 weeks off. Which I guess would be a great time to do IVF because then I have no excuse but to rest up. So all will be revealed thursday. I'm actually pretty scared and nervous about the whole thing too.
I am so happy that you're doing another round of IVF. I hope and pray that this time it's a sticky one. And you never know, a change of scenery could be just the thing you and DH need to start fresh with your soon-to-be BFP.
Have you gone back and put an offer on the 70 acres yet? I think you should go for it. If it's somewhere that you would love to live, go for it. You only have one life so make the most of it.
I really happy that things are going well for you. I know it'll be even better once you get your long awaited BFP and I can't wait till you come on here to share your fantastic news. So sending you a million of these and wishing you heaps of .
Take care, Hun.
So sorry you are going through a hard time TTC right now. I know exactly how you feel. DH and I have been TTC for 5.5 years now and found out last February that both of my tubes are blocked so the only way for us to have our longed for baby is to have IVF. Now you may thing that it's simple, but when you are overweight and have been denied treatment because of it, it does become heartbreaking. And to already have 3 miscarriages under my belt plus have an extra 10 years on you too, makes it even worse for me. But I have lost about 36kgs now and have finally got and appointment to see a FS which for us is just the best news ever, but the thought of going through IVF and losing another baby makes me extreamy anxious. Going though a miscarriage is hard enough, but to wait all these years and get a chance to have another go at it only to lose it again plays on my mind heavily. I honestly don't know what I would do if that happened again.
And as for your comment on IVF being for people who can't fall pregnant, I was a bit offended by that. Makes us sound like we're useless or something, that's why I think more on the lines of "having difficulties falling pregnant". I just think "can't" was a bit too strong. But it's all good because I know it wasn't it a malicous way.
After you had your MC's, did you have any tests done to say why they happend? I know that last 2 were ectopic, but surely they would have done something for the first 2 right? As for IVF, in my honest opinion, you should try at least one round. They will make sure that they insert the stronger, healthier embryo to reduce your chance of having another M/C. I know I said earlier that i'm still scared/worried about it happening again, but my DH has done a lot of reading up about this and says that because they do pick the healthier/stronger embyro, the chances of having another M/C are less. Plus with you being much younger than me, those chances are in your favour. But that's just my advice/opinion so it's entirely up to you.
I wish you the best of luck and hope that you get a BFP which is sticky so you don't have to endure anymore heartbreak.

I am new on here! Been trying for a year now.. My husband and I are only 24. I am fine so far, but he has low sperm count and motility. Never had a BFP and I am trying to stay hopeful, but it's starting to get hard.
Not entirely sure where to go from here. What was the next step for all you ladies? Did you just keep waiting and trying naturally or did you get help?

Beanie. My DH and I have been TTC for 5.5 years. I've had 3 MC's and last february after many tests to find out why I still couldn't get pregnant again, my Dr decided to do a HyCoSy which found that both my tubes are blocked, so the only way for us to have kids is IVF.
What tests have you and your DH had so far other than DH's SA? It's best to cover all bases especially since you've been TTC for 12 months. Plus with you both only being 24, TTC for 12 months and never had a BFP, I would definitely get things sorted now. It's going to be hard not knowing why you still don't have a BFP, but both of you getting tested for everything will ease your mind. Once you get your answer, you can take the next step and work out how you're going to make your baby dream come true. But don't loose faith and don't give up hope, because I never did and now we're going to see the FS on the 21st of June.
You will get your answer soon. But don't stress out otherwise you make things worse for you both. Trust me, i've been there and done that. Good luck and let us now how you're doing in the mean time.
