Nise - huge congrats on your family now being social worker-free zone. Well done you
Mistyy - low risk Hope Harmony brings harmony to you
Garfie - hope the hormones settle soon and you can get back to business
Pippi - not sure about TSH where you are, but I know here there are two different ranges, the "normal" range that is recommended for the general population and then a narrower range that is recommended for those TTC. I was outside that narrow range by 0.1 but my Dr agreed to go ahead (against her own clinic's rules) - and thank goodness she did
Greens - nice to see you still reading
Barnabibear - hope you are OK hun
AFM our 12 week scan results came back as 1:830 (much better than the 1:50 that is normal for someone 41yrs11mo). So no amnio or CVS here. And Today I'm 14 weeks, so second trimester. Yay
Barni, nice to see you back. Good luck with the big old 'O' this month.
Maddy - Fantastic news and congrats on 2nd tri - I do not know where the time goes, you'll have a little one in your arms before we know it! So pleased to hear all is going so well.
K came home with an excellent school report, we are very proud of her. Open evening was fun. We met with her current teacher, the deputy head and the head who all had nice things to say about K. Her next teacher is a young Canadian - she's pretty full on especially in the loudness stakes! lol. Extremely enthusiastic about her work and apparently takes no shit from the kids. I think K will get on really well with her.
Thanks for the warm welcome back after my disappearance for a while. The last month or so we have been preparing for my dh's hew job abroad. He flew out this weekend and has settled in nicely. Feels awfully lonely in the house now but im sure I will get used to it. I plan to visit him out there in a few months.
So, my ttc journey lately.... I've been for a few appointments at the recurrent miscarriage clinic in london. Not very impressed if im brutally honest. They found I had a thin lining so wanted to operate because from one scan they decided I most likely had scarring from the dnc I had last year. Knowing I've had really light periods since the birth of my darling sleeping boy I was sure this was a problem predating my dnc. Still I figured at least if they have a look about they can confirm there's nothing wrong, I think they were going to do a biopsy too but not sure. Anyway to cut a long story short the day before the operation I found out I was pregnant again. So, no op and lots of happy. At 6 weeks I started brown bleeding and again long story short it was confirmed last thursday that I had a blighted ovum or unviable pregnancy as they call it nowadays. Had to take the tablets to start the miscarriage as ironically id stopped bleeding by then. Am back at hospital tomorrow to check all is ok. So, here I am...no baby...no hubby. BUT I have a theory what's happening and im at a fertility clinic for a consultation so I will see if they agree and will be able or willing to treat me. Meanwhile the london hospital has sent a letter to say they wont see me again because I refused to have the op, even though it states you can't have it when pregnant, so if I want to go back again I will need another referral, which they will refuse because im too old now. To be fair they probably think im still pregnant but i still feel like I've been wronged somehow. Maybe im being a bit over sensitive. Hoping monday will bring a bit of positivity. Fingers crossed.
Oh Barnie - i'm so sorry for your loss. It really seems as if your body is ready to be pregnant again - it's just, as you say, that some small thing needs sorting and then you'll be away. I cant believe the London clinic is saying you refused the op!! How ridiculous. You didn't refuse - you were no longer able to accept he procedure. Angry for you. Are you seeing the fertility clinic on Monday? I will cross everything for you that you get someone prepared to give you the time and attention you so deserve It's been such an exhausting roller-coaster of emotions for you. Take good care of yourself. We're always here for a chat/moan/laugh/cry/gossip Hopefully by the time you fly out to see hubby for the first time you'll be firing on all cylinders again and can time it with the nearest ov day
Nise - Congrats on being SW free, and on LGs fab report You should be very very proud - of yourself as well as LG
Garfie - hope that old gets herself in and out again very soon for you.
Maddy - yay for the second trimester I still find it funny that we're so close along the line. I thought you were way in front of me! How's your symptoms? My boobs are finally a little less tender, but the nausea is still awful. I was horrified to look down and find my ankles all swelled up on Wednesday evening! Argghh. Que feet up high and DH on washing up duty. They were ok again by next morning. Having to keep an eye on how much time i'm spenidng in the heat. Typical Brit
Butterfly - loving your little green avatar Very clever. How are you feeling?
Pippi - , PDMCD - , everyone else - how are you all?
Barnie - I know what you mean when I told them I was pregnant it was as if I'd upset their testing regime/schedule - and they didn't want to know me any more I felt as if I was a time waster.
I am in the same boat as you if I want to go back to the recurrent m/c specialist I have to go back through my doctor and now I feel I am getting to the point of "what's the point - the door handle is coming into view again"
I am so sorry you had to go through this again hun - I was hoping I had found the miracle cure progesterone, but even that didn't help It is also crap that you're hubby is away you must feel so lonely don't be you always have us
So what is your next move? - and what is your idea?
I am still waiting for my results on the baby - I feel I can't move on until they come back - sending you HUGE
Have you had any spotting in previous pregnancies at this stage?
I always had different levels of spotting often reminding me of stewed rhubarb. It never lead to me actively loosing. My cervix on examination one time suggest erosion which is a very daft term for what it really means.
Hang in there and do you have an early scan booked soon.
