Period after miscarriage...

Hi girls haven't been on here in a few months. It's nice to hear some positive stories!

I was fortunate to get pregnant and then unfortunate in the fact I had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. I really hoped I'd get pregnant again before my period but hey ho it arrived a few days ago. :-(. Trying to remain positive in the fact that when it's finished I can try again. :-)

Really would like some good news by Christmas! sprinkling baby dust to all us girlies for the news we all want to hear. Xx

Hello

I have just joined. I'm very sorry to hear to your news, it's great you are being positive. How long have you been trying for? I'm going for egg donation treatment.

Hello Tasha we've been trying for around 3 years and was about to start IVF but conceived naturally just before! We were over the moon but then i miscarried :-(. its a cruel world sometimes. When are you starting your egg donation? Xx

Hello

I finished taking the contraceptive pill on Friday and I'm now waiting for my next cycle to start when I will start using the progesterone patches. I should be going for the embryo transfer between mid November and beginning of December. Do you think you will try IVF?

Awesome Hun! That's fairly quick! Wishing you lots of luck! In regards to the IVF if nothing happens by Christmas then yes we will try and pick up where we left it a few months back. I already have the medication as we had already bought it. (We can't get funded on the NHS as my hubby has a child from a previous relationship). X

Thank you this egg donation has been very quick. I had IVF last year that was private because of my age. They couldn't get an egg they tried the IUI procedure but the test was negative. They only gave me a 2% success rate for another go at the IVF. The egg donation is 60% success rate I'm having this in Barcelona. That's very unfair the NHS won't fund you. Good luck to you too stay positive and look after yourself. X

Wow sounds like you have been through quite alot already! how did you find the IVF if you don't mind me asking ? Painful? Etc. Me and hubby are remaining positive. Just need to take it easy especially if we chose the IVF route etc. X

Hi mooster, i remember you, u had thr meds at home and then became pregnant naturally. I was so happy for you. But just seen that you lost the baby. I really really sorry to hear that. I had a failed ivf in Aug, my story was a rare one, the embryos didnt take on so i never had the transfer. You wanted to know how was the ivf itself. I was pretty good, managed quitewell, i guess this

Varies from person to person. We are going to try one more time and hope that its successful.

Speak to your clinic and ask them when you start your cycle as you have the meds already.

keep us posted on how you get on.

Hi Shirley aww thanks for remembering me. It has been so hard lately. Feeling on top of the moon & then feeling so deflated :-(.

Wishing you lots of luck with your next treatment. Have everything crossed for you!

We have made the decision to start the IVF after Christmas now. See if anything happens naturally before and then go from there. It's so hard as I was so looking forward to buying baby things at Christmas and now this obviously isn't going to happen. Life's so cruel sometimes. Xx

I kne its so hard, waiting to happen naturally, each month your are ready with a stick to pregnancy test and it breaks your when its a negative one......

anyway do stay in touch and you can private message me if you feel to have a chat.

Hi. Sorry I didn't back to you yesterday. I found the IVF exhausting and very emotional. The hardest part was that 2 week wait. When I was attending the clinic I spoke to lots of ladies and that did help. Sounds like your hubby is being supportive which really helps. My hubby has been there for me since we started this journey 5 years ago. If you choose the IVF get as much rest as you can, take one day at a time, eat lots of protein and drink plenty of water. A good chick flick at the end of the day also helps :-) X
