    PADBRAT, EXACTLY, we sure will get there. Hanging on in. I am right behind by about 2 weeks. I don't think the nerves will subside for me until I can feel my LO every day...

    The "one day at a time" approach is really the only one you can have when you've suffered loss I think... I'm glad you are passing milestones... And once Xmas has been and gone, it will be time for your scan! Are you finding out the gender? I am feeling now too bad thanks.... It's that time again to BD as much as we can lol, should be ov'ing later this week I think. I'm just so desperate to be pregnant again.... That sounds selfish seeing as my daughter is only 9 months old (well, nearly 10) but I so miss being pregnant! But I will wait it out and see what happens... Xx

    MISSMATERNAL, it most definitely doesn't sound selfish, we are all here because we want to be preg and have LOs regardless of how many. You will get that pregnancy soon, and another beautiful LO to follow. I have to agree, after our losses, one day at a time is all that we could do. The holidays are always so stressful to us because we try to split the time 50/50 with both sides and there are some step-family, etc but this year, with what we have to look forward to, we are just not so stressed. LOL! YES!!! we are most certainly going to find out the gender, we are quietly/secretly hoping in one direction but will be extremely happy with either. GL with the BDg this week, just keep thinking of that Holiday BFP that awaits!!!:dust:

    Hey Mara - congrats!! I am so happy for you!

    Ladies - i have not been here in a while. How are you all? I see both new and familiar faces and am back here myself. I guess i should do a signature so i don't need to write it all down each time i post in a new thread...

    I have lost 5 babies - 4 of which this year. I know it's not impossible as i have an amazing 2 year old boy - it's just all very confusing. But i am now working with a specialist who believes i have auto-immune problems. I'm on baby aspirin and when i get my BFP i will start immune suppressants and i think steroids too.

    For the first time ever i have started temping and i got OPKs last week! Don't know what i'm doing really but very excited and a little impatient.

    Megg - long time no speak, my lovely. How are you?

    Wishing all you pregnant ladies happy scans and healthy pregnancies. Wishing all you fellow TTC'ers all the luck in the world.

    Hello, gorgeous! Sorry to hear of your losses, darling. Wishing you all the luck in the world with this new specialist though! xxx

    I'm good, yeah. Plugging along, as you do. We're still not TTC... haven't gotten back to a point where I'm interested in giving it another go. I'm writing and having a great time with my life though... so I can't complain. Happier than I've been in years. It's good to see you, love. <3

    Thank you for the lovely warm welcome back, ladies :friends:

    Megg - sorry to hear you are not TTC'ing but i am sure you have a very good reason for that. Our journeys have not been easy and tbh, if i miscarry again then i will need a lot of persuading to try again. So i can well imagine a self-imposed break. I'm so glad the writing is taking off - it must be such a great feeling to fulfill your dreams. :thumbup:

    Mara - were you high risk last time? Sorry to hear that. What's caused it?

    Padbrat - i remember you too. I'm so sorry you have been through what you have. Can i ask what the solution was for you in the end?

    has anyone on here done the baby aspirin/immune suppressants? Any experience/advice?

    Have a good day, ladies! :winkwink:

    hey Blondee...

    For 3 month prior to BFP I got fit, took aspirin, vit d, omega 3, 5mg folic acid...

    Then from bfp... aspirin, fragmin, folic acid 5mg (for first 12 weeks) vit D (for first 12 weeks), omega 3, prednisolone 25mg, cycogest 3 x 400mg a day.

    I am also on aggressive anti thyroid meds due to a toxic overactive thyroid.

    Hope that helps sweetie x

    hey blondee i was only high risk last time because of the diabetes and then i had pre- eclampsia near the end of my pregnancy and then had an emergency c-section because my placenta ruptured and disconnected from my uterus.
    and this time around its the diabetes, i already have high blood pressure and they said i have to have another c-section but im just taking it 1 day at a time!

    Wow! That was a real cocktail. My thyroid checked out ok but the immune suppressant and steroids sounds like what i (hopefully) have in store soon. Can i ask why the vitamin d and omega 3? I'm still living in the West Indies so i am getting plenty of vitamin d from the sun.

    Mara - my goodness! It sounds like a real rollercoaster ride. I too had an emergency c-section (he got stuck!) so i would require one if i am lucky enough to be in that position again.

    I hope you two girls are taking it easy and enjoying your pregnancies.

    Do any of you girls have experience with OPKs?? I have been a wally and not really read up on it. I got a positive OPK on saturday but when my temps still hadn't risen today i took another test and got another positive.... Are they temperamental or do you just stay positive once the surge is detected? Both times they were definitely even lines. :shrug:

    Take care ladies.

    we used OPKs and i took a test twice a day, once in the morning and once after tea and we just BDed on the positive days and they went negative after a few days. and we have really only used them seriously and had good positives when we conceived haha
    good luck i hope you catch that eggy very quickly!!!

    I can't actually say it's a 'very good reason' at this point. I'm actually just happy and don't feel like I want or need to TTC. I may change my mind one day, but I'm not going to try and fix what isn't broken right now. :thumbup:

    Megg - it sounds like you're in a good place right now and that makes me happy.

    Razcox!! This is turning out to be quite a reunion :kiss: You certainly have been through the mill and i'm sorry to hear that. I hope the new year brings you the results you want.

    As much as i want a baby i feel totally sick of TTCing taking over my sex life for the majority of the past 4 years. It would be so nice to just associate sex with spontaneity and love again :blush: I'm guessing some of you must feel the same. It's a sad state of affairs.

    Ok, after berating myself for not understanding OPKs now i'm wishing i had taken my temps properly :haha: i've not been writing them down, just waiting for them to change but i don't seem to have had the post O rise so i'm guessing i might not have ovulated, right?? Cor, this 2WW is going to be a long one! I hate obsessing.

    We leave for the UK on Sunday and i was worried that if i get my BFP after we leave then i wouldn't be able to get the immune suppressants off my specialist here. Last night DH tells me that the specialist said i could get them before a BFP and take them with me if i was leaving the island. It's not like me to miss a huge fact like that so i will have to call them today but fear i've not left much time to get an appointment :nope:

    Have a good day ladies.

    I'm back but I think I am on here further up.

    Just had my 3rd m/c and hoping to get another BFP soon. Can you put me on the list again?

    Cheers

    Some pretty good stats there.
