Trying42 - I haven't heard of a blockage like that before. Perhaps you didn't have normal hormones and lining production after the D&C resulting in a missed period rather than scarring preventing release of the lining. I have everything crossed that there is a very simple explanation for you that will be easily and quickly resolved so you can move on successfully
Starf1sh - I was going to ask whether you were still trying naturally or not not trying (if that makes sense). It's such a tortuous situation when you keep getting over the first hurdle only to stumble at the next one. It would be so incredibly wonderful for this one to stay through to the finishing line for you and DH. But conversely if it is not meant to be, then I hope you have a speedy resolution. Either way, hopefully you can get more info from the tests as to what needs to be done to get you over the line ASAP. Hang in there lovely lady, I'm certain you will get there one way or another

Oh Starfish, I cannot believe this is happening for you. Of course I am holding out hope this one sticks, but I can imagine the anxiety and distress this is causing for you and DH to be waiting and wondering again. Big, big hugs I am thinking of you.

Thanks ladies for your messages and PM's I do appreciate them. I know I sound incredibly negative (and perhaps ungrateful) but I am just going on the objective evidence and low prog is often a sign of an abnormality with the embryo. Not to mention the intermittent cramping and bleeding, obviously not a good sign either. I have absolutely no control over what will happen, and from my previous experience I just can't open my heart to false hope.
But I do know I WILL get there and I can't wait to share that good news with you all
DrM, it was more of the 'not not' trying variety. Haven't used contraception for years for obvious reasons but also have continued to 'have a crack' whenever I thought I might be ovulating. Not actively charting or using ovulation kits etc. When you least expect it hey??!

starfish, gee how do you cope? i hope like all the others that u do get a miracle sticky but i also understand not wanting to allow false hope to build up.....if not meant to be hope for a speedy recovery, the drawn out bleeding for a 4 wks m/c (that i had) does your head fair in , but its better than a d/c i guess. thinking of you . wish the gods would cut u a break, glad im not the only one who reads things into bfp number plates tho either .

Oh Starfish lovely I so wish things were different for you. Like you, I know about miscarriage and I know the signs, the pain and the grief. I am hoping and praying that this time will be different, that this little one will stay put, but I am also hoping that if this is not meant to be, that the resolution will happen quickly for you. Take care of yourself, you are in my thoughts

Starfish - OMFG!! How could this be happening yet again and I can see how you feel about the world being against you.... the numberplates LOL but you never know, it may be the miracle you're after?? Will you scan if you're 5 weeks? Surely that will reveal alot of answers for you?? BTW, I'm impressed that you still have an active sex life - years of TTC and IVF have ruined ours ?forever!!!!!!!
How is your DH coping with 'managing' the bondi clinic?? Good to have that progressing as the fall back plan, but what a dream not to need it! Good luck with the new job too
Trying - it does seem strange that it's scarring blocking the whole uterus and not even a drop has come through... maybe DrM is right and despite your hormones/blood tests you're just skipping a period? Can you wait and see rather than diving into yet another D & C? (Groan - more waiting...)
Gardenia2 - Glad the obs appointment was good - get that ticker ticking
Pinky - Well at least the flu is subsiding to make room for the MS! Congratulations on the discharge (from the clinic I mean!)
DrMummy - Ooooh, I hope your bub is punctual and your suggested date next week eventuates! The end is a little tiresome (DS was 11 days over!!). I laughed about bub springboarding on your membranes - I remember that - interesting sensation
And no, DS won't be coming on Friday - it's 3pm right in the middle of his sleep so MIL has offered to help which I'm grateful. Just hope it's good news or it may be quite a horrible evening with the inlaws staying too
MELK - so good to hear from you and glad it's all going well.... Look forward to some photos
AFM - I'm a little scared now my symptoms are all falling away - I'm hoping that's just 2nd trimester approaching and not a nasty surprise this Fri for my NT scan.
Can I also subscribe to the IVF PTSD? I'll also take the life membership

Sorry I have been MIA, we have been to see DH’s lovely aunty at her farm up near Tamworth since thursday. She is in her final weeks from bowel cancer but luckily we got to spend some quality time with her and share our good news.
T4two – I am so sorry to hear about what is happening to you, you have really been put through alot, it doesn’t seem fair. I hope tomorrow’s procedure goes as well as it can and you get some answers. My understanding was that IVF gets around problems at the cervix area. I will be thinking of you.
Starfish – Well I cannot believe my eyes in what I am reading – what a rollercoaster for you and DH. I really hope for some miracle – it would be so so deserved. It is amazing to fall pregnant twice in 6 months, I really hope this doesn’t have the same outcome, but really understand not wanting to have false hope. Here’s my plea for you .....“Universe please give our beautiful starfish a break she really deserves it ” I hope your first day at the new job went well with so much on your mind. Many hugs.
Melk – so glad all going well for you and little Isabelle, can’t wait to see photos!
Gardenia – glad your ob appt went well and all going smoothly for you!!
Dr Mummy – will be thinking of you this week, hope all goes smoothly for your little ones arrival. I hear you about the IVF PTSD, I never fully believed DD would turn out “normal” after IVF, they truly are miracle bubs. You will be in my thoughts!
Mum4nay LOL about the life membership to post IVF PTSD – me too please! Good luck for your scan on Friday, its a nervewracking time but hoping all goes smoothly. Just booked mine in for 2 wks today

Melk, I just finished reading your birth story with tears running down my face, I am just so incredibly happy for you and for me personally your story couldn't have come at a better time It gives me hope. Still haven't seen any photos of the gorgeous Mademoiselle Isabelle, have you managed to put them up?
Trying42, all the best for your op tomorrow and thanks lovely Unfortunately we've been around the block a few times and we do know our own bodies for better or worse! Hope yours is in recovery and ready to receive a beautiful embie in no time.
Mum4nay, I must have misread when your NT scan was! All my best wishes go with you for Friday
Pink, I am so sorry to hear about DH's aunt but glad she got to share in your joy. Good health really is very precious and something to be grateful for.
Drmummy, for news soon
AFM, well MC is confirmed, levels have only risen marginally and Dr S has taken me off all support. I have been bleeding v heavily so hopeful this will all resolve itself without surgical intervention. Please baby gods you really owe me one!! I don't feel sad as I didn't really have any time or even favorable circumstances to get attached to this little embie. But miracle it still is for DH and I that we can make our own embies (twice) without the help of IVF thank you very much!!! Just can't make the buggers stick, so whatever doubts I have had about ED being the right path have well and truly been vanquished now. Sis is saying that she is happy to postpone a month or 2 if necessary which is great news for us and reduces the pressure.
Thanks again gorgeous girls for your thoughts and unfailing support
