I'll be thinking of you tomorrow Gardenia. Always reassuring to see all is well but I still feel total anxiety between Ob appointments. I'm hanging out to hear bubby's heartbeat again tomorrow too.

Hi to Starfish, Hiero, Spot, slinky & all
AFM – had a “re-assurance” scan today and all is on track at 9 weeks, still very surreal. Booked in with my ob next week so discharged from the IVF clinic which after 2 yrs on the books seems surreal too!

Hi girls I have to be quick as im at work
PB - Thats fantastic news! it feels good to walk away from the IVF clinic doesnt it! I loved walking away saying im not going back there that part of our lives is over. its such a hard journey its amazing we stay sane/married when it drags on for years.
AFM - Well all is good! yaaay he got me straightup on the table when I said I was anxious. and there is a heartbeat of 176. he said now theres only only like 2-3 % chance of anything going wrong. Its so surreal this one is sticking around and working out. Obs is nice also we liked him.

Wonderful news Gardenia and PinkB. There are so many hurdles in this journey but these first ones are the biggest. Now you are both just like any other pregnant lassie and I hope everything continues with total normality for you both.
Mum4nay - you must be both excited and nervous heading towards your NT scan. Will you take DS with you or wait for the 20 week scan. I hope it is a day of pure joy for you and DH.
Hiero - I'm sure you must have very mixed feelings about DP trying but I hope that you are able to focus on your future full of promise rather than the past pains you have experienced. Will you try insemination or go straight for IVF or perhaps FET using your embryos? You have so many options still available to you both that I'm certain you will succeed. You deserve every happiness.
Millie - not long for you to wait now. I have everything crossed for you and look forward to celebrating your first-go success.
Trying42 - I'm sorry AF is being a biatch. But hopefully all of this turmoil will be behind you for good once she arrives. Hang in there.
Starfish - It is so wonderful to hear that everything sounds really promising with your sister. Are you feeling excited about starting? I hope you don't have to suffer unnecessary delays, and that your clinic can coordinate everything perfectly for you. Be strong with them and demand their absolute best. You deserve nothing less. Have you started your new job? I hope it has given you the stress reduction you hoped for.
Spot - I hope everything is picking up for you and congrats on your fitness success. Are going straight into another cycle?
Big and to everyone I've missed.
Thanks ladies for your good wishes. I'm sorry that I've been very lax in my posting but please know that I have been cheering you all on constantly. I have shed tears of joy and despair for many of you over recent months and wish with all my heart that I had the answer for success in this journey. Long term TTC really is a form of torture and I fear I have post-traumatic stress. Regrettably I have only been able to let myself enjoy my pregnancy in recent weeks once I was certain bubby had a chance of survival on the outside which is unfortunately coinciding with the uncomfortable period. I don't care about the aches and pains and lack of sleep though, I'm just ecstatic that bubby has now made it past 37 weeks.
We had an Ob appointment yesterday and he said he is not going to let me go past 40 weeks. He will do an internal next week (38.5 weeks) and if all is good then he will induce. He also said any sign of trouble in he will go straight to CS as he is not going to take any risks. Bubs dropped last week and is frequently pushing on my cervix so we are hoping it will be any day now any way. Actually as I type this bubs is having a good go at rupturing the membrane. I can't wait to meet our little miracle. DH and my b'days are 26/5 and 26/6 respectively, so our money is on 26/7 next week.
Love and best wishes to all

Melk, have already said it in your ED thread but there can never be enough celebrations for Isabelle's arrival! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Trying, I'm sorry love that things are taking so much time
Mum4nay, will be thinking of you Friday for your NT scan and celebrating another milestone past, woo hoo!!!
We are going through Bondi clinic and they are killing me atm! If they had been this useless during any of my cycles I would have left them long ago! Today I got a text from my sis telling me somehow pathology cannot locate any of the 6 vials of her blood and she has to have them repeated! FFS!!! My sis lives in country NSW so not exactly easy to tee up all the services required which was why we wanted everything done when she came to Sydney Grrrrrrrrr! Rant over, sorry had to get that off my chest, it's the last thing you want when it inconveniences others helping you out of the goodness of their heart I have handed it over to DH to manage for a while because I am so angry with all the f@#k ups and now further delays while they sort this out.
Pink, great news hun. Congratulations
DrM, so close to being that Drmummy!!! Unfortunately I am also a card carrying member of the IVF PTSD club. It is so difficult to have faith and trust in our bodies when it seems they have let us down in the past, but sounds like yours is doing a beautiful job of incubating your beautiful bubba. I guessed team for Melk and was completely wrong! So I'm going with for you! Will be eagerly lurking for news on your bubba any day now. Wishing you a wonderful birth experience
Hiero, all the best for DP's appt, must be soon now? You are in my thoughts lovely.
Big Slinky, Spot, Millie, Jfb, Gardenia, Sabah (where are you??)
AFM, apart from my rant above, Friday is the last day in my job. Such mixed emotions about leaving but I know it is the right thing and new opportunities await We were hoping to be doing our ED cycle in mid September but all dependent on results coming back on time and A-ok.

Hi everybody, had a pretty devastating day and need some advice. AF still hasn't arrived, so it was off for blood tests and scan. Blood tests showed I was getting ready to ovulate and the reason I have had no AF is probably due to scarring from my D&Cs - basically blocking the uterus so that the blood can't get out (sorry if TMI). I have to have another general and a hysteroscopy on Tuesday to hopefully remove the scarring. FS said that this didn't necessarily mean the end of the road - it would depend on how bad the scarring was - but it must be pretty bad to block the cervix???? Has anyone ever heard of anyone getting pregnant after this?
23-07-2011 12:26 #999
Trying, This just plain sucks. I don't have any advice or experience to share but can imagine how over having surgical procedures you must be. I really hope that the hysteroscopy can sort it out for you so you can move forward and that someone else has been able to give you a ray of from their own experience.
Apologies, this is going to be a kind of long one. I have really thought about whether to post or not because I feel like my reproductive history is a bit of a soap opera, lurching from one drama/tragedy to another! But I feel I need to vent this with people who 'know' me and will get the crazy irony of my situation.
Turns out I am pregnant. Naturally. Again! But (here's the kicker) only discovered this because I started spotting last week at a weird time in the cycle and now appears to be full blown MC. AGAIN!!!
Tested positive at home to my absolute shock (and horror given my ED cycle plans are in progress ) and bt yesterday showed hcg 492 and of course progesterone is 26 hence the bleeding. Not exactly sure how many days dpo I am. I tested 10 days ago when my period was late and it was negative, but FN and myself think I am somewhere in the 5 week mark, so from my previous experience hcg is also quite low for this stage.
So I find myself taking up residence in limbo land again with repeat bt's and hoping for all the reasons Trying has explained and had to endure that I am not lining myself up for D&C no. 3. Seriously this could not've come at a worse time as I am starting my new job Monday I ossilate between thinking the universe is seriously f@#$ing with me or trying to see it as a very clear, unambiguous sign that ED is the right path for me.
On an irrelevant and supersititious note I have seen 3 BFP numberplates in the last 24 hrs leading me to believe more in the "universe f@#$ing with me" hypothesis! Clinic are annoyingly taking the cautious route and started me on the pessaries and clexane, although I am now bleeding quite a lot. I will be seriously cut if this prolongs the process and interferes with being able to move forward with my ED cycle in Sept/Oct. Thanks for the opportunity to vent ladies, I just cannot seriously believe this is happening again
