LilMuffin - I'm so glad it won't be long til you're TTC again! Are you starting to feel the meds make a difference to your tiredness?
The doc I was seeing has gone on holidays so I saw a different doc. Firstly, I had the wrong number in my head for my Thurs blood test, it was 182 (not 282!) but the saturday one had gone up to 282! That's 60% in 2 days so considered enough of a rise. He said "I think you are still pregnant". He also checked my temp and BP and said they were both consistent with being pregnant. He was a lot less concerned than my other doc about how low the levels are but agrees that we need to rule out ectopic (and hopefully find a bub in the right place!). So more bloods today and he'll call me this afternoon to say if they are up again or not. If they're up he's given me a referal for another scan and wants me to get that done if they are still rising. So we'll just keep looking!

Stretched that's good news, how far along are you now? When will you go for the second u/s?
I am still really tired the meds haven't made a difference at all that's why my FS wants me on a higher does.
Keep us updated as to how you go.

By LMP I'd be 6w3d but I suspect I could have Od up to 5 days late. If today's bloods are up again I'll try to book for tomorrow or Wed.
I agree with the FS, if they were the right dose you should be feeling a difference after a couple of weeks already. Sounds like you're being looked after well!

Glad to hear that Stretched, I've been stalking to see how you went today. I'll keep my that everything continues rising.

So glad you can TTC in 8 weeks. I so hope it happens for you and really really soon!
Stretched, I'm so glad to hear you're still pregnant. Stay calm and loads of sticky healthy vibes your way

Hi everyone, hope you are all well. I know a lot of us are keeping quiet and trying not to focus too much on ttc.. I know I am
Lamabana82 - oh i would be so upset too with a comment like that..! It's hard when people don't know about the m/c and then say things like that.
MARTTTC - I'd probably stay away from her (texting) in the meantime and not make any effort to contact her until she does. Sounds immature but that's what I'd do. It's an uncomfortable situation and you've told her how you feel and doesn't sounds like she gets it.
STRETCHED - so glad to hear the news that baby is still here and all is well. Sounds like you are in good news with your doctor. Was just thinking the other day how in the old days there would not be much medical technology helping women etc. FX for you.
Delerium - hope AF doesn't show! I hid some peoples new feed status updates this morning. One of them got pregnant and announced her pregnancy the same time I would have announced mine and it broke my heart. She always writes status' about how much she loves her life blah blah blah.. I know selfish of me but oh well.
First time mummy - you are entering (in my opinion) the most exciting time of the month- the 2WW. Everyone hates it but I actually like it. Good luck hun.
tiggerfields - sounds like you are comfortable in your decision to put IVF on hold. (Don't mean to sound like a stalker!) but I've been in the same testing threads as you for a while (have taken a different username to protect my identity from someone I know in person) so I know what a ride it has been. Not trying sounds pretty good to me. We're both blessed with previous pregnancy and let's hope it happens in the near future for us.
LilMuffin - all the monitoring and testing sounds good. Good you have a FS you like. Me and DH had one assessment cycle with the FS last month and I found it all fascinating and greatly put my mind at ease that nothing was wrong.
As for me, CD 23 with AF due in 5 or 6 days. Am flying overseas then and I am thinking beginning a vacation with a baby in my belly would be pretty cool..

Stretched - I am a bit funny with doctors, I like to stick with what/who I know rather than trying to find someone new and not knowing what they are like. I haven't been dizzy again since, but still am having pain when going to the toilet, not just bowel movements either though, it's more so when I pee, or about to at least, sorry if it's TMI. Had pain like period pain this morning, so I thought that AF was on her way today, but still no sign.
Not sure if the Gyn clinic will do another scan, maybe they will, I will tell them about the pain anyway and see if they have an answer.
I have been googling myself and did a search to see if it's possible to ovulate without bleeding, It's interesting to find that there are lots of women who haven't had periods but have still had children, though still feel like I'll need AF before I get my BFP
