    Hey all,

    I don't think there's already one of these yet so I'll jump in first.

    I had a mmc last July at 12 weeks and a 21 week loss in March. She was due last Thursday. 2 days later I got my BFP!

    My due date should be April 1st, 2 days after my 35th birthday.
    Anyone else want to play?

    Yay hi nessaw. My due date for Rowan was last Thursday, 2 days before my bfp. I feel pretty numb too, I'm actually kind of excited with small waves of being terrified but it's very early days. Got my 2-3 on a digi today and I've done so many frers it's silly!! What are you doing for the due date? Xx

    It's a weird one because although that was the edd for the pg, they would've delivered them by 36 weeks so I think we'll plant something and light a candle. We've got their ashes and haven't decided what to do with them yet. X

    Am thinking of buying the cb digi with con eption indicator. It's what I usually test with but got the frer as I was testing early-I teach and am on summer hols so couldn't distract myself!

    Yeah I couldn't work out whether to mark Rowan's birth day or due date but she was always a July baby to me. She also probably wouldn't have been born until 42 weeks knowing my body!! I've done 4 digis already, 4 more on the way. Also done 6 frers and about 8 ICs and my AF was only due yesterday. Oops! Any symptoms yet?

    Am going to do another frer tom. Got a boots digi in the cupboard-just like seeing the word! What prompted me to test early was I had lower abdo pressure and was ravenously hungry 10 and 11 dpo with slight boob ache. Also on the eve of the 11dpo the cat came and sat on me which it hasn't done since just before bfp with the twins. Crazy but true! How about you? I think we'll think more about the day the twins were born rather than edd whereas with my 1st mc it's the due date. X

    Aww bless you. Cats are pretty amazing, I definitely believe that! My first scan's booked already. The bereavement midwife at my hospital booked it without me even asking! In a way I'm pleased to be being looked after but now I think they must be really worried because the NHS never offer scans for nothing. Me and the midwife had to lie about bleeding last time to get an 8 week scan and if just had a mmc found at my 12 week scan!
    This time I've got one at 7 weeks, then a specialist scan at a big hospital at 12, if they're concerned about the heart then we get one at 16 weeks and automatically one at 20 at the big hospital. I think I'll also have growth scans because my dd was small for dates. Poor kid will come out microwaved!!

    My twin consultant told me to ring when I got pg again and they would book me in for an early scan mainly to check for multiples. Going to get past the af date and call on mon.

    Yes I suppose they'll definitely want to check. Have you got twins in the family? If it's twins again would you be at higher risk of problems? Honestly I used to dream of how I'd feel if I was told I was having twins but now I'd be excited but mostly terrified because I know how many more things can go wrong. How are feeling emotionally nowadays? A late loss is devastating but losing twins must be a whole other level. Although I'm not trying to 'compare' grief xx

    The twins were identical which is not genetic. They died of twin to twin transfusion which is when one gets too high a share of the fluid. It happened too quickly to stop. So if I made twins once out of an egg in theory it could happen again. It only happens in identical twins this syndrome. I think they're offering it for peace of mind. I didn't get anything early last time despite asking for reassurance. We went private for a 9 wk scan.
    As far as grief goes this month I have felt a whole lot better. Prior to this cycle I had a 42 day cycle with low estrogen which really messed with my head. Was in a state for most of it. I had attempted to use the cbfm last cycle and I was still getting lows at cd17 and it drove me a bit crazy. This month I took a low dose of clomid left over from last year in an attempt to regulate my cycle. So the cbfm worked just how it did pre twins. Now I have the worry that it might be fraternal twins as clomid produces more eggs. As my fiance says we'll deal with whatever we get!

    My brother has identical twin girls who were at risk from the same thing but it was just coincidence. I was terrified. It took me a while to adjust from my ideas to just one baby to having to deal with 2. Then as I got used to that we lost them.

    We were lucky in that we knew what the twins had died of but we had a very long wait for the ashes due to zero communication between the hospital and crematorium. I was convinced at one point that they had lost them. I am so sorry to hear about Rowan. I didn't realise-have been somewhat lurking round the boards since the mc. That must have been terrible.

    Thank you hon x yes it was devastating, but I've got to a place where I feel blessed to have had her for as long as we did. I don't wish if never got pregnant or carried her, she was and always will be one of my children and I wouldn't be without her.
    How are you feeling today? And symptoms?! I'm just suffering from insomnia as always in the first tri. Sleeping badly then waking at 5am with a rumbling tummy!!

    Just bloated and can feel things going on. Didn't sleep well last night either. Too hot. Am on school hols today so going swimming every day and lots of dog walks. Last time I was slightly over on the bmi so was referred to a consultant but that was pre twin discovery so was with a consultant anyway. Having my twins taught me I could get pg with a baby as my first mc was a blighted ovum. So it gave me a lot of confidence. The consultant was sure that if it had been a single pg it would've been ok. X

    Los like we're still on our own! All these women with willpower holding off to test :haha:. I had my first proper 'I'm losing this baby' moment yestedat, cramps and wetness and felt like symptoms dissapeared. I think I get it every pregnancy but it never feels like it at the time. My boobs are back hurting a bit today and I very nearly threw up this morning because dd had had an accident and I had to strip her bed, like I do a lot, but this time I was properly wretching. Can only be a good thing! Have you seen your dr yet? I've not phoned my gp or booked an appointment with the mw or anything, just the hospital scan with the bereavement midwife, but they're sorting out all my scans and that's all that matters so I figure it's no rush! Every other time I've been in the drs at 4 weeks!!
