    Oh my god @Debant my heart is broken for you. How utterly devastating to get this far and have something like this happen. One 'good' thing that you can take from it is that it looks as though you finally got the protocol right. Please don't see it as a sign. Thomas is your first born and he will always be a part of your family and so very special to you. You may not be ready to consider another baby because you're dealing with the grief of losing him. Allow yourself to get through this, you don't need to make any decisions now.
    I've had two stillbirths, and while they were soul crushing at the time, I consider my rainbow my third son and am so glad I persevered. I feel like my first two boys are always there watching over us. Please don't lose hope, it's a hard journey but it doesn't have to end here.

    I'm so sorry to hear that news @Debant. I really have no words that will make you feel any better. I just can't believe how much you've been through it really breaks my heart. Take some time and consider what your next step is. I don't think this is the end for you. Sending you and hubby all my love and strength.

    @Debant. I am so so sorry you and your husband are going through this, it is insanely unfair. Please don't take it as a sign, this happens to many people who go on to have children (look at all the people who do have children but probably shouldnt due to their lifestyle choices, drugs etc) - where is their sign?
    Sometimes it feels like the universe is against us and every defeat or disappointment becomes a marker for self doubt. Long term TTC is such a punish and at times, a soul destroyer.
    What has happened to you bub is undoubtedly bad luck and I would imagine it would be unrelated to difficulties TTC. Allow yourself some time to grieve and assess what you would like to next. It is so difficult.
    I am in a very similar position to you after having just lost our miracle natural bub last month after almost 11 yrs ttc (we thought the fact that this was a natural pg was a sign that it was meant to be😞) I was also thinking this was a 'final' sign that journey is over but also though OK we have our 2
    (dodgy?) embryos left dor a reason.
    I am just about to turn 43 and the fear and pressure of my age can be crippling at times.. Personally I am still not 100% that I will try again but I also don't want to regret letting my embies go in 10 years time when I no longer have the choice. I have also swung the other way many times after 8 ivf cycles and have just wanted to draw a line in the sand to put a stop to the everlong sense of limbo.
    I hope you are resting up and your physical recovery runs smoothly and time will help you make the decision that you feel most comfortable with, either way. Take care x

    Your story is hard to read too @MAYFLOWER. Sounds like you've had a difficult journey too. I would also have taken the natural pregnancy as a sign that things would be ok. Did they test the fetus to determine why you miscarried?

    Why did you describe your remaining embryos as dodgy?

    I haven't suffered any losses so I don't know what it's like to miscarry, but I am sure it would be very hard and extremely emotional.. I just can't seem to fall pregnant and not sure at this stage if it's an implantation issue or dodgy eggs. I've only started researching implantation but my fs tells me it's rare. It doesn't seem to be rare.

    I'm very sorry for your losses and I hope you will continue because like you said, you don't want to regret your decision later. xx

    Has anyone done Dr Bravermans immune panels and used that to guide treatment?? I've heard it's like $3k!

    Default Ph consultation with Dr M after miscarriage

    Hi ladies,

    I spoke to Dr M tonight and there's a lot of things that he's going to change for my next cycle. First of all he's going to increase the dexamethasone to 4 tablets and increase the clexane to 60mg. I'll also start on 1200mg of progesterone pessaries and he'll probably also give me progesterone injections, which I've never had.
    We spoke about my lining and he seemed quite shocked that my IVF clinics have done FET's when my lining only gets to about 6.5mm.....he said that's nowhere near thick enough!! So next time he wants to do a few things to improve my lining- platelets and plasma (blood will be taken from me in the morning and then mixed with platelets and put into my uterus later that day. I'll be under a general and he'll do a scratch). He also mentioned trenfil (I think that's what he said, it was hard to understand on the ph), and viagra pessaries???
    He also said he would put me on something called plaquanil??
    He also wants me to do LIT.
    Does anyone else have experience with these types of treatments? He said something about LIT having an 80% success rate for him??
    Thanks ladies xxx

    @Pink6 sounds comprehensive which is great. Yikes more Dex, I found that stuff full on but hey if it brings a baby!!

    I've heard of the other things - trentenil I think it is meant to bring more blood to the uterus or something and plaquenil is another one in hearing more women with immune issues taking - so great to have these things to use for next time!

    Reminds me I should get a follow up for next time I have a transfer!

    Sorry to jump in here after so long, but I found Accupuncture works great and helped us achieve success after 5 years of ivf.. it increases blood flow to the right places, for stim, transfer and right through 2ww - crucial.. . (If carried out by a acupuncturist who specialises in ivf treatments)

    @Pink6 I spoke to Dr M last night too and he's got me on plaquinil too. apparently anti Malari meds but help with recurrent miscarriages.

    Good to have a plan, though!
