I'm so sorry it's going slowly. That must be so tough.

I'm so sorry mini! That's brutal. I'm sure it's way easier said than done but maybe it will be good to just enjoy the holidays (eat, DRINK, and be merry) and then start fresh in a new year. Hugs xxxxx

Just a "mini" update . . .

I went back on Sunday and my HCG levels were 326 on Fri and 342 on Sun so they have no idea what is going on as they are neither rising or falling. Another scan revealed there is still something there and I have an ovarian cyst although it is (only) 3cms so nothing to worry about and should go on its own apparently.

The doctor said she hadn't completely ruled out ectopic (eek) but it was highly unlikely given there was nothing on the scan. They are calling it an incomplete miscarriage and are now concerned about me getting an infection since I have been bleeding for so long so took swabs to test.

I've been given some tablets to "help things along" which was a bit weird given how long I've been wanting to get something to stick and now I'm trying to get it to unstick - the tablets have caused cramps and I feel a bit crap but nothings coming out so not sure if they worked at all . . . wait and see I guess.

I go back on Saturday for more blood tests and I guess if the HCG isn't much reduced it will be D&C.

We can't DTD until I stop bleeding and then they want me to wait until my next cycle so we won't be trying again for a while.

I feel ok about it although just want it to be over now so I can get with life.

this must be the longest miscarriage in the world! Back to hospital today. Good news - HCG DOWN to 200 ish, bad news - its still at 200!!!

Back next week for more tests . . . will it never end? At least the bleeding has stopped.

Oh mini, I'm so sorry. How awful for it to take so long and leave you in limbo.

Happy New Year all! Hope you have all had a good Xmas and new year and are enjoying your babies being a bit bigger and more involved with it all.

Sorry I didn't reply smawfl - I don't get notifications anymore and was giving B&B a wide berth as I was feeling miserable.

I am now feeling much better thanks. Stopped bleeding/spotting completely last week and have felt much more positive since. From start to finish took 64 days (a whole half term!) so it was completely rubbish. We are back to WTT to give me chance to heal. Not sure I could go through that again anytime soon but fingers crossed 2014 will be our year.
