rach- I'm glad to hear that you're getting a second opinion. It will be worth the cost, at least to say that you've left no rock unturned. I think it'll do wonders for helping you make a very important decision, with no 'what ifs'. I hope that it goes well for you today.
Bk- Thanks for the reply. I'm just tired of rolling the dice... which isn't to say that every other woman who gets a BFP doesn't. But I do really feel like I'm not sure how many times I can do this. I do want a child, but at what cost? I just want a doc to give it to me straight. Instead my current doc is still operating on his 'fluke' therory and hoping for the best. It's very easy for him to say, but for me to be the one who goes through it all, I don't feel like he's doing everything possible. Does that make sense? He hasn't even run my bloods this time.
I'm back from the specialist and things went better then I was thinking they would. He looked over my bloods and went over my test results I had done week and half ago.
He seems to think if I get my anemia under control which I have started taking prescription iron pills to do that, and my immune system improves. I could very likely carry another pregnancy to term with help of medication to prevent the virus from doing damage to the baby.
I will take that as a positive It is going to be a struggle and a long road but I think this is enough to keep my head up a bit.
I have canceled the surgery will have to pay a fine for doing it so late into the process, but I have a pressure off my heart I have been carrying for a few day now wondering if I was doing the right thing here. Thanks for listening ladies
Super123- I hope you can get some answers I cant believe that they did that come on they could of told you that over the phone.. But then again they wouldn't have made the $$ pisses me off!!
Well i have a colourfull past and im sure that my future is not going to be black and white either! Im michelle and im now 28, and my journey started 11 years ago! 17 and thinking i knew it all, i found my self pregnant and scared, and not knowing what to do, well it was quickly answered for me as i had mc a couple of weeks later. To be honest at the time i was relieved, and thought i have the rest of my life! Within a year, still young and knowing it all, i met, moved in and married the then so called man of my dreams. After marriage it was the starting the family bit and we didnt waste any time. It took 3 years, but then one day i felt awfull, and i just knew! I was pregnant!! But then it happend, a mc, i was devastated. But picked my self up and carried on trying. A few months later the same thing happend, 2nd mc! A year later,i started to feel ill, very ill. I went to the doctors and one of the test that they done was a pregnancy test, to my shock it was positive, i hadnt even been late! Was booked in for scan the next day, well i will never forget that day. Laying there and watching the doctors face while doing the scan was awfull, it turned out to be an ectopic, and i was nearly 12 weeks. I was taking to theatre and had my left fallopian tube removed, the the next day the doctor came and saw me just to say that my remaining tube was twisted and i had adhesions, and that my only hope of concieving now was IVF!
I will fast forward abit (3-4 years) otherwise i will be here all day. 2 years ago me and my husband split, not having gone through the ivf yet, and no more pregnacies, I met a wonderfull man and fell madly in love! To our amazment, i found out i was pregnant within 2 month of us being together, it was miracal, but short lived as once again i mc, but just that hope of being able to fall pregnant was enough for me! The one year later, i was pregnant again, went for a scan at 6 weeks, and was told it was another ectopic, they said it was in a bit of my left, that they left after the surgery last time! So next day had surgery, just to be told after, that there was no ectopic at all, and that the surgery would propbably make me mc, 2 days later i did! I was so mad at them! It was the worst i had felt in a long time, just thinking what if's all day! 2 months later pregnant again, but i dont think i need to tell you what happened..mc 3 days later! Because then it was the 3rd mc with new partner, i was refered to the hospital for tests. I had blood tests, HSG, and a scan and all came back normal. So was told that there was not much more that could do for me, and have put me on 75mg (baby) asprin and extra folic acid.
Im just hoping to have a sticky bean..and hope it will be one day soon!!
Hi littlehush nice to meet you.. So sorry for all your trouble and for your losses. I wish the best for you in your journey. It sound like it has been a long one, but am very impressed with your courage to keep on trying. Best of luck
Littlehush- honestly I just admire your strength to keep going because like superp123 said it is hard to keep going. Superp123 you so remind me of myself, I feel like i'm reading my thoughts when I read your posts! and to some degree its good to meet people who just understand how difficult this is. I've been trying to get my hubby to understand, but theres nothing like physically enduring this thing, its hard. Littlehush, I wish it wasn't so hard for you, I hope it doesnt have to be hard for long for all of us.
Rachjim98 i'm so happy for you, glad you got this news just in time.
I've had 2 confirmed (6 week D&C, 8 week natural) and unconfirmed 3rd in 2 years between the ages of 19 and 21, and am currently pregnant again. The consultant that I've been referred to has put in to test me for Lupus, and Chromosomal defects of myself and my husband.
Just wondered if anyone else has been tested for this, or if it's quite ununsual?
Rach- glad to hear the apt went well. Its good news, hopeful news!! Crap about the fine though. These docs are raping us!! Agh.
Littlehush- You're an inspiration hun. Truly one strong lady, and surely it won't be long. Welcome and good luck on the baby making!
Bk- No kidding! I was thinking the same of you.
Well ladies just wanted to come on and let you know how my day has gone today, and vent a little. I got the results from the genetic testing we were waiting on. Genetically perfect little girl. Wow, that hurts... Why on earth, if nothings the matter with me or bubba?? This news is perplexing and saddening to say the least. I also had a frank discussion with the doc (over the phone this time) about testing. We've tested everything now, so the only thing to do according to him is try again. Seems like such a stupid thing to do. At least for now, today. *big sigh*
I guess i better add myself to this thread aswell..
Alot of you already no me but for you who dont Im Tracie. Im 21 and iv had 4 m/cs between december 06 and june 08, All between 6-10 weeks. I had tests done on me and hubby last year resulting in being told i carry a genetic problem that affects pregnancys, 1 of my chromosomes are broken and attached itself to another so i have 2 abnormal chromosomes. I need a procedure called PGD ( pre implantation genetic diagnosis) Its assisted by IVF to find a sutible egg to make a baby with. i have a 50% chance of finding a good egg and 25% of it working threw IVF. Im due to have Treatment sometime this year. Its been a very very very long road and theres still alot more to come but if i can make it to the end then im sure everyone can
Nomatter what life throws at you always remember you are stronger to keep going, even when it feels like your not you are
i have had alot of miscarraiges luckily with 2 amazing babies in between because i dont know if i would have bothered trying anymore, i didnt take asprin as all tests came back negative both of my normal pregnancies were concieved naturally, although with my 1st i was put on complete bedrest for the first 14 weeks due to bleeding and scanned every week, i also spent a fortune on private scans everyweek too as i could not go 3 days without seing she was ok, however the docs told me i could not carry a certain sex (boy) thats why i was loosing them but low and behold i had Max this year and didnt have any rest, bleeding or complications whatsoever, i dont know why mine were lost i still to this day have no answers, i had years of heartbreak and i will probably never want to try again due to this, but in my eyes and from first hand experience when the tests come back negative and there is no apparent reasoning, the docs try and palm you off with any excuse, pill to take etc to stop the hassling, it turned into a daily routine for me forever calling my gp, gynae and asking for another test to be done.
if you need any questions answering that i may be able to help with please pm me xx
