MARTTC - my AF was a lot shorter post D&C too, I was expecting my 1st one to be very heavy but it wasn't at all.
LilMuffin - Hashimotos runs in my mum's family. She still has some thyroid gland left so her dose needs to keep being checked and varied as sometimes her thyroid works, sometimes it doesn't. Whereas an auntie who has no gland left is just on the highest dose all the time. This would be why your doctor is proceding with caution. You don't want to have too much synthetic thyroid as that comes with its own side effects which can also effect TTC/pregnancy. I expect even on a low dose you will start to see improvements so don't be disheartened, best to get the right dose so your baby can be super-sticky! (the tiredness and depression are both hypothyroid/hashimoto symptoms, so expect them to improve too )
AFM - waiting, waiting, 6 hours til my scan. Will update as soon as I know anything!!

Did a FRER this morning on 9 DPO It's still really early, I just have this feeling this isn't the month, despite the symptoms. Well see in the next 3 days I guess. My angel only tested a faint line on 11DPO so there's still time.
and yes muffin, def considering giving up. Time is not on our side I'm going to be 34 if the baby is concieved now and DH is early 40's. I was thinking yesterday this, in many respects, has been a more painful journey than our first and waiting 4 years. I thought about why and I think it's bc I feel a sense of urgency time wise.

I also have thyroid antibodies and a goiter along with it and have an appt with a surgeon in a few weeks to see if we just remove it altogether or if we can control it as is. I know it seems like everything is falling on your shoulders and the weight of the world is on them but all I can say is that I know you'll get your baby so don't give up .. ever. There's a reason it's taking this long and as much as you may want to kill me for saying this, one day it will make total sense to you

Hurry up and tell us how you went Stretched! I'm so anxious to hear your news!
Del it's early so don't give up just yet
Marttc, my first AF after my D&C was HORRID! I had these intense pains which literally felt like shreds of tissue were being torn off my insides. I wanted to die at one point and I'm not just being melodramatic. It was horrid! It was a very heavy bleed which lasted the same as always being 5 days. I wouldn't be too concerned if I were you. It'll regulate itself and get back to normal

Nah not giving up yet FTM just not feeling pg tbh. But then I've talked myself into not getting my hopes up so who knows lol
I didn't have a D&C with my angel, but my first AF was really bad too. Clotting, lots of pain, which since I had my 2nd and got rid of my endo isn't normal for me. I bled about a week from memory.
Stretched... dammit woman get online and update lol. hope no news is good news
edit: I noticed you wouldn't have had the scan yet *face palm* good luck hun, I'm sending you all the good vibes I can muster

Sorry girls, you got to allow for us West Australian's being a bit behind!
Scan found nothing. Nothing in my uterus, nothing outside my uterus. No CL cyst either, which was already there with DD even before her sac started to show on the US. So think we'll have to say this one is gone.
I'll see the doc again tomorrow and I know he'll want to do another set of bloods. The u/s tech said levels can keep rising after a MC and yes, with my missed MC they certainly did, but surely if I've bled (and assumingly passed the sac) the levels could not keep going up at the right rate. I'll see what the doc says and what the blood test shows. Won't know anything else til Friday at the earliest.

Maybe it's just too early to see the sac? hope you get good news on Friday. Really hoping this isn't another loss for you stretched
Getting lots of pulling in both ovaries, in a bit of pain what is this? have been getting this the last few months but usually only in one ovary. Upon reading it can be a CL cyst, but I can't have one every month can I?

Stretched I am so sorry your going through all of this, I truly hope everything works out for you. Have you done another test? My last m/c i knew bubs was gone because my lines dissapeared, if you had passed everything I wouldn't have thought your levels would go up. How far along are you supposed to be it could be too early?
Del I can't give you much info on the pulling in both ovaries, where are you in your cycle? I get really sharp pains in my ovaries at ov time, I never know which ovary will pop the little egg because the pain is on both sides. I am told by my doc this is because I have PCOS but I don't really know much about it.

Aww Stretched ... let's wait and see before we paint a picture that may not be accurate. My prayers are with you that this is your sticky bean

Woke up this morning and winced as I leant on my b00bie getting up they're that sore and thought - stuff this, I'm POAS again! The line is darker yet, it's finally as dark as the control line and darker again than the test I did on Monday. So more bloods today and I'm sure if they're still rising ok my doc will recommend another scan next week. I just can't see how my dates could be out by more than 5-6 days. I got my 1st BFP on 24th, if I'm any more out than that then that BFP was at 5dpo or less! I'm seriously !!
