Hi ladies, well today is a huge milestone for me, I've just done my first buserelin injection, I was a little nervous about it but was all fine and no different from trigger injection which I've done 3 times now. So carry on now and next step is scan 17th Jan. excited, scared and most importantly HOPEFUL! x
Bless you Barnabi, you poor darling. My heart goes out to you and I wish there was something I could say to ease your pain. As has already been written, we here sadly have more understanding than most of the pain of loss, so take your support and strength from your friends here, it is an amazing thread and will help you through the darkness. Be kind to yourself and I pray that you can find peace at this horrid, horrid time xxx
Thought would just drop in let you all know that we've already started a new cycle an this time another new drug is added in this cycle & this next Friday go in for ultrasound to see how things are looking if good may get to do a IUI Sat.
That is next week not this week..
Plus I've been very,very busy with my mother stuff just found out my mother has lots of land that is worth a whole lot of money but there is a catch in that so have check into that here in a few weeks. If things work out an my mother agrees with what planned on doing may get a wonderful gift later in the year but thats if things go as planned.
Check in later on after have my ultrasound next week. Praying for better news soon.
Be thinking of all you ladies an praying all gets great news soon..
Ooo, sounds like your New Year has got off to a good start Bigger. I do hope everything works out for you and your Mother. Good luck for next week, I hope the ultrascan gives you the go ahead. Keep us posted.
Pussycat and welcome. Good luck to you will be keeping my fingers crossed.
I didn't say yesterday but my visit with LG on Wed & Thurs went really well and we had a lovely couple of days. We go up again next weekend and will be joined by the SW & guardian for a short while so they can see how we are all progressing. Also managed to find some reasonably priced train fares so I won't have to do the epic 10 - 12 hour round trip drive - that knocks me out. Will have to hire a car while we're up there.
Barna - If you are in the UK you can insist on tests now - blood and genetic testing as you have had three m/c. I know what you mean by being dismissed as it's just one of those things - your age grrrrrrrrr it gets me so
Thanks Garfie, what blood test and genetics tests can be done...if you don't mind me asking? See the consultant next week and want to ask everything I can and it will probably be my only opportunity. And thank you so much for your kind words. X
Barna - They took about 10 vials of blood from me and two from hubby
What they were testing for he never said except now I have the results in front of me this is what my letter said:
I am pleased to inform you that your recent blood test for Antiphospholipid Antibodies (Lupus Anti Coagulant and Cardiolipin Antibody) were negative. You and your partners genetic tests are still awaited and hopefully these will be available when we see you in the New Year.
I also googled tests after recurrent m/c - it seems like there is a standard procedure in the UK for testing
I hope your doctor will begin testing hun just to put your mind at rest - as although I don't appear to have O yet????? I am much calmer about it as I am now on their radar - if that makes sense
I hope each day hun is getting easier for you BIG
Love to all the other ladies, just nipped on here quickly to answer Barna - hopefully when children are back at school tomorrow normality can resume
The APA tests (antiphospholid tests) are the ones that I have been tested for before, after losing Archie. Although tests came back normal they were being cautious and prescribed the blood thinners (Clexane) for me to take at 7 weeks. APA causes blood clots and so can cause issues due to the small blood vessels in forming baby. I'm not sure if this is underlying issue and things have got worse since Archie as I've got a little older. I will request retesting because I may need this drug as soon as I get BFP.
I will see what gets said and happens. My acupuncturist thinks that this is the problem but although she's fantastic I would like an answer from someone in the medical profession.
The last 18 months have either been TTC, being pregnant, losing pregnancy so it's very tiring and devastating. When you have no idea why this keeps happening its a bitter pill to swallow. It seems both you and I can get pregnant, it's staying pregnant that's the issue. I don't know about you but I want something more than keep trying and hoping.
Pippi - bless i can empathise with everything you said there.
I too backed away from allot of ttc stuff on the internet a good few months ago. I only post here now and pop onto my FF most days, for literally 30 seconds, to put my bits in. Very refreshing and mentally better for me - i find i have leveled out now to a nice point which i don't think is obsessive, but at the same time fills my need to be ''Doing Enough To Make Getting Preg A Vague Possibility''
Hope I can get to that point, doing a crossword in the evening now instead of sitting on dh ipad reading up on all things ttc. We are still thinking of giving ivf one go, waiting to see if the hospital reply (you can go private to the nhs fertility clinic) to my gp letter before chasing them and comparing their options with a private clinic.
Af arrived yesterday so no luck over Xmas...unusually light flow which is a bit concerning.
Great news Nise on your second date with lg, good luck with the meet with the sw and lg. a bit of pressure but now you have met her a few times it should be relaxed...only 9 days to a decision.....wow that's close
Hope you get some answers barnibear and Garfie. Since you are both getting pregnant hopefully they will find something that's easy to treat....and enable a sticky bean next time. Barnibear, why do they not give you the drug as soon as you get a bfp ? Maybe there is a logical reason as to why you have to wait till 7 weeks.
