Final FINAL update

FINAL (FINAL!) Update So, thought I'd add my final update! So we had our baby boy back in Jan 14 and he is everything we ever dreamed possible - quite literally the light of our lives. My hubby and I finally pressed play on life again and enjoyed every second of it. I was sure I had completed our family and felt ready to let go of dreams of a bigger family - I simply couldn't go through another miscarriage again. Our son turned 2 and something shifted - I wanted to be pregnant again. The urge wa...

Final update!

Hello Just wanted to put in my final post. After 4.5 years of trying for a baby, 10 fertility treatments, 3 miscarriages and a lot of tears... Our gorgeous son was born last week. He is perfect and our wildest dreams have come true. The fear that quietly plagued me for years has quietly departed and an intense and possessive love has grown in its place. There were many times on our journey when I felt lower than I thought it was possible to feel - but I don't think it ever crossed my mind to giv...

Update Number 2

Hello! I just wanted to take a moment to update this post for anyone who had been looking at it - as I have said before, I always want to know what happens to be people who I have read posts from on forums... It is a year on since I suffered our 3rd miscarriage (Aug 2012). I was being seen at St Mary's hospital under Professor Lesley Regan. She advised that (once ready) we get back on the horse (so-to-speak!) and try to get pregnant naturally again. We started trying in January and to my utter a...

Update

I just wanted to update this post. I often search the web for people in similar situations as me and feel quite frustrated when I don't know how it ended! So sadly, this didn't end as I hoped. We had 2 early pregnancy scans (6 weeks and 8 weeks) and both were great. Bean was growing well each time and heartbeat was 148bpm & 179 bpm (so very strong). During the 8 week scan the sonographer asked me to cough - I did and we saw our little bean wriggle. It was the most beautiful sight of my life. Ver...

Naturally pregnant after infertility and pregnancy losses - nervous wreck!!!

Thanks Amina!!! Well I thought I'd update you all. I had the scan today and so far so good. MIRACLE The fetal pole measured 0.88 which means I'm about 6+6 weeks (4 days less then I thought but she told me it didn't matter and was rarely spot on) The heartbeat was 148 bpm (very strong in her words :weehee and the sound was unbelievable the best in the world. What was really bizzare is that there were 2 empty sacs next to it which means at one point i was carrying triplets. For some reason this w...

Naturally pregnant after infertility and pregnancy losses - nervous wreck!!!

Sorry for the slow reply Jensqui! Thought I'd reply now as I'm finding it hard to watch Mo in the 5000m!!! too nerve racking! Thank you so much for your help Jensqui and reasurrance. I have booked a 7 week scan privately for Tuesday. I am so ridiculously nervous about what we'll find, but I just need to know now what is happening inside. I haven't felt anxiety like it - becoming obsessed with Olympics to take my mind off it - has been a life-saver!! I love your suggestion of having just 30 minut...

Kat13 & Flowergirl! Thank you for your replies This website really is such a HUGE support. Kat13 thank you for your advice and reassurance re: symptoms and I love the thought that I could be holding the baby that's inside me in 9 months... strangely I haven't even thought of that as a possibility so the very thought just gave me a huge lift. Flowergirl - wow. Firstly massive CONGRATULATIONS, you have been on such a long and painful journey (I am so sorry to hear of your losses, I can imagine how...

Naturally pregnant after infertility and pregnancy losses - nervous wreck!!!

Thank you for your quick reply Gracie!!! Congratulations to you too!!! Your post has really helped me - I have been umming and arrging about whether or not to get a scan done for fear that it will be the same as last time - but I think I need to for peace of mind - as you say its a very very long wait to 12 weeks! I am extremely grateful to be here at all after everything we have been through but just pray all works out ok. How far into your pregnancy are you? I am relieved to hear you say that ...

Naturally pregnant after infertility and pregnancy losses - nervous wreck!!!

Hello fantastic ladies I am still in complete shock but found out 3 weeks ago that I am pregnant. My DH and I have been trying for a baby for over 3 years and during that time, I have had a large number of tests/ scans & assisted treatments to try and conceieve and sadly we have experienced 2 pregnancy losses (one chemical & one at 8 weeks - following HB at 6 weeks). I have had tests for immune problems and infertility and everything always comes back as unexplained. I recently discovered that I...

OH GOD - starting to feel ill....... 2 DPO!!!

Oh lordy sorry to spread negativity!!! but having a panic attack!! Having calmed down over my asprin/DHEA dramas... I am now worrying that I am getting ill. (sensitve skin, fluey feeling etc) I am on 2mg of dexmethasone twice daily and have been for 2 weeks (came down from 3 times daily during stimming).

Advice re: DHEA & Asprin post stimming.....

Thank you Taxihome!! Its really interesting to hear another perspective on DHEA - it seems everyone (cinic) has a different perspective!? Which I suppose just reiterates the confusion over it..... Did you continue taking DHEA through stimming / 2 week wait etc? (and if so, at what dose) When did you come off it? I left a voicemail for Mr H yesterday but have had no word back as yet.... xxxxx

Advice re: DHEA & Asprin post stimming.....

Thanks so much Maria - that's incredibly helpful and wise advise. I have been really concerned throughout regarding DHEA - although I started to see signs of ovulation (stretchy cervical mucus) when I never have before, I ALSO noticed that my cycles were getting shorter and shorter (30 days to 26) which can't be good!!! so it makes sense that my hormones have been affected by it. I've contacted my clinic and I'm waiting to hear back to see what they say - but to be honest everywhere I read it sa...

Hello! I think it should help! I only managed to get my first BFP once immune drugs were introduced, sadly for us it ended in miscarriage but I really feel it only happened at all thanks to the extra treatment. GOOD LUCK

Advice re: DHEA & Asprin post stimming.....

Hello immune friends! I hoped you could help me with a little query that I have. I have just ovulated (I hope) following my ovitrelle injection on Saturday and have been on 150mg Asprin (along with dexmethasone, metformin, 5mg folic acid & DHEA). The last 2 times we fell pregnant we were only on 75mg of asprin (pre-treatment/during treatment and into pregnancy) I have read that 150mg does is usually started with the BFP and not before as it can have an adverse affect on ovulation... what have yo...

Heparin - experiences... please let me know!!!!

Yes Thanks Jewels - I wasn't that clear - writing in a fit of rage! I think I mainly wanted to know if it was normal to start only once you have found out if it is a positive or not and whether I should be on it from the HCG Trigger - but maybe there is a good reason for that if I am not doing IVF? I'll check with Mr H I'm sure there is a good explanation... I hope so!
