    Yes. Believe me, there were many years that I thought I would remain childless, made worse by the fact that I came so close. Never give up hope.

    Thanks everyone for all of your support.
    I had morphine, delivered around 5pm and was discharged by 9pm. At the time I had wanted to go home as soon as I was allowed, I was so drained and tired and just wanted my own bed, but as soon as I walked into the parking lot I wished I hadn't left and had chosen stay the night, I was really overwhelmed with fear and the panic of leaving her behind. I still wish I would have gone back for the night. Just be aware that you may not be as eager to leave as you think you will be. X

    Very sorry I assumed you were referring to live births. I'll edit my post.

    @Simil , I've just read the latest update in your diary.

    I can understand your pain and frustration

    FWIW I found it hard to determine who was worse - the genetic counsellor or the actual geneticist we saw. The genetic counsellor pulled out an old book with diagrams and explanations along the lines "When a sperm meets an egg, blah blah". Yeah right.

    The geneticist we saw was quite triumphant when she showed me photos of children from an online support group for children with my DD's chromosomal disorder. Would have been nice, except I had already contacted them, been referred to leading researcher in the area and sent all of my info off to them. The geneticist also made a really off comment along the lines of "I've never seen a child with X before and I wasn't expecting her to look so normal". She almost sounded disappointed that I hadn't presented her with baby with profound birth defects.

    Pregnancy and not knowing exactly what her long term prognosis would be was the absolute worst. I hope you get some news this week.

    Im so sorry you are going through this. I had to terminate at 21 weeks for medical reasons. Bub was measuring around 16 weeks. I was induced. I went into it not wanting any drugs as I wanted a clear head but it was extremely painful and being induced it came on hard and fast. I ended up getting 2 shots of morphine and the pain was minimal after that. I cannot remember exactly but i think it took between 3-5 hrs before I had to push, that part wasn't painful at all and she was out in two pushes. She was extremely small. Please pm me if you have any other questions im happy to answer any at all or even if you just want someone to talk to who can relate to your situations. All the best hun, sending my love x

    ETA- I was discharged the next day. I was with a public hospital which doesnt have the greatest reputation in my area but i cannot fault them. All staff were amazing, caring and sensitive to our situation. I was offered any drugs I wanted to relieve the pain and was able to stay longer if I wanted. I won't go into details but personally I wasn't prepared for what she would look like and it was quite shocking. She was 180gms and 15 cms.
