Congrats boost at least there's some good news in here.
I forgot to add too, the pain on my right side is a small corpus cyst and they said it was nothing to be worried about. Does it just go away on it's own?

Just sending some love and hugs out to you all because we all just need a hug sometimes
I finally made a step in, what I think is the right direction today - I made an appointment with a naturopath and got one for next Tuesday!! The lady had one spare spot!! Im very excited as it feels like things are falling into place for me finally and I can get myself sorted. I really hope this is going to help me with my cycles and feeling healthy.

I realised I'd be delivering my angel baby right about now due 21 July but being a c/s I'm taken usually a week to a week and a half early.
Mumma loves you angel babe

Del - I am so sorry hun, all I can say/do is offer hugs and an ear if you ever feel like you need one. Don't worry about the house, the mess can wait.. Take some time for you, do something special with your DH after his exam. It's real ****ty timing hey, I guess it's times like this where you just have to take faith in the saying 'What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger', That's what I have been trying anyway.
BOOST - Congratulations luv, that's fantastic
AFM - Nothing new here, still looking for somewhere to live despite the fact I really can't afford a place of my own until I get a part time job, so for the time being I am stuck living in the same house as my ex, to top it off, there is no heater, so I have been stuck in my room absolutely freezing, thank goodness my friends have gotten me onto Sons of Anarchy and I have all 4 seasons to catch up on, just finished season 2 lol. Oh well, better try to get some sleep, have another unit to look at tomorrow morning.
Wishing you all a great day

Del, that's so sh!++y that you're going through all of this when it's nearly your due date. I try hard not to think about those dates but it's difficult when you see/hear of people with pregnancies/bubs the same stage/age as yours would be. I hope your levels are going down and you don't need another shot.
NicM, I hope you can find a job and/or an affordable place soon. Do you have a little fan heater? I'd have that cranking in my room and hope that you've moved out by the time the electricity bill comes!
AFM - CD11 here and not much to report. Using OPKs again this cycle and want to see if I can get SMEP happening without DH cottoning on to what I'm up to - otherwise he'll lose his mojo! We've got a night away on sat so that should help!

Del- that is really crappy. I hope your dh exam was ok. Fingers crossed the shot had worked for you. Take care

I am new to this thread
I'm sorry to read of others' losses. So many hopes and dreams are wrapped up in the possible futures of those babies that don't continue. I particularly feel for people that have taken a long time to become pregnant in the first place as starting the whole process again seems like such a long road.
Sorry, this post is an essay, but I feel the need to write it all down, to put some clarity to thoughts.
Seems I have an ectopic pregnancy of unknown location. But, I'll start at the beginning.
Few days before June long weekend, I missed my period after a couple of false neg tests. Further preg test was weak the day after my period, but 2nd line showed up just fine a few days later. Thought I may have ovulated late.
Several days of constipation along with light nausea prior to the June long weekend. On top of this, I had a bad cold and was taking panadol (which sometimes effects my bowels, sorry TMI). Little appetite. I chalked up some stomach discomfort to all of this. I had a small smear of light pink blood on one evening of the long weekend. Lots of bloating for a week and was uncomfortable to do up my pants buttons (still is), although I didn't seem to have put on any weight - I thought maybe I'd show early (2nd pregnancy).
Constipation and nausea pass after 3 days. Lack of nausea doesn't concern me as I had no morning sickness with previous pregnancy. My stomach is still a bit sensitive to touch.
I see my GP/Ob at 6 weeks. He offers referral for early scan, which I am relieved to book in for. Doc also gives me antibiotics for nasal infection. I mention the uncomfortable stomach but he doesn't seem concerned as I am no longer having any problems. He suggests I wait another week or 2 for the scan, so as to see a bit more on it (I assume this is more so that a too early scan doesn't show enough and might needlessly cause concern).
So, last Sat I had a scan when I should have been 8 weeks 3 days. No heart beat, just a black blob in my uterus. I was asked about my dates, as lady couldn't see anything to confirm one way or the other, as was measuring 5 weeks 3 days.
Felt numb, but I just had a sense that something wasn't quite right about this pregnancy all along, but seemed baseless and normal early pregnancy wondering. Honestly thought I would bleed if there was anything too bad and nothing much I could do about it if it wasn't going to work out.
My GP/Ob called me Mon after the scan to get me to do a pair of blood tests, to check HCG levels. Tues afternoon 16000 and something and then Thurs morning 14000 and something. Dr appointment Thurs arvo. Pregnancy definitely not viable, no fetal pole or yolk sac, but also nothing seen in tubes, so 'location unknown' at this stage. On top of feelings of loss this was quite scary news. Emotional roller coaster.
Every little twinge now has me concerned that something much worse is about to come up. I called in sick today for work, as just mentally didn't think I was going to cope and seeing a pregnant work colleague probably wasn't going to help. I cried most the way home after dropping off my son to child care (25 minute drive). It was like the floodgate of (just) holding it together all week finally let go.
I have to go to a major hospital tomorrow (Sat) for another HCG test, which is an hours drive. Supposedly they can get HCG results back more quickly and then have Drs on hand to determine treatment. A long waiting game. I told my mum I had to go to hospital for possible ectopic pregnancy, so that she can look after my 2yo son while hubby and I are waiting around. We hadn't announced I was pregnant yet.
After a couple of questions, she tried to re-assure me by saying she knew of people that had had a tube removed and still had babies after that. Then proceeded to tell me about a mutual friend we know that was having problems with her bi-polar husband that she'd just got off the phone to. I don't quite think she knew how to react or what to say, so I can forgive her that, but the last thing I felt like hearing was someone else's problem.
My GP/Ob indicated the hospital might give me methotrexate or I may need surgery (need to work out where things first if they can't find anything in my tubes). From the reading I have been doing, my HCG levels are quite high for a good % success rate with methotrexate at this time. Seems <5000 is considered the highest likelihood of success rate to avoid surgery.
I'm feeling very scared they will do another ultrasound and find something in my tubes after all and I will lose one. Considering I don't have any pain or bleeding, maybe things aren't quite that dire, but gosh this waiting and not knowing, the apprehension and fear sucks. I'm not usually an overly emotional person outwardly, but I either feel numb or like I'm about to burst into tears.
My OH has said his concerns are for my health. He doesn't seem to have digested or registered that we've lost a baby too (even if it was unviable) so it is tough to talk about my feelings of loss with him. I'm also sad to have to wait an unknown period of time to try again, was liking the idea of a Feb baby.
Please cross your fingers for me that things work out ok...

If you've read above I've just had an ectopic.
Did they do an internal u/s on you? When I had mine on tues they did it just on my tummy and she said she saw nothing in the uterus but couldn't see the tubes closely enough. I then knew what that meant.
During the internal u/s she moved the long thing to my left and I yelped. She then said she could see the baby in my left tube.
AS for methotrexate the 3 rules are 1)under 5000 HcG 2)tube no more than 3mm and 3) no fetal pole or HB. I had the shot on wed and I'll have the results mid next week to see if the count is going down as the first 4 days it usually rises as the cells were still multiplying the day of the shot.
With a count that high, I would think they would see it in your tube. I'm no med pro of course but I suspect is an unviable pg.
What I will say is if you start feeling pain in your side, get to ED straight away.
