Good morning lovely ladies,
Thank you so much for all your support and comments following my miscarriage earlier this week. We've had lots of tears but lots of talking and we've been trying to have fun and laugh despite our very sad news.
I am determined not to let this get me down. I have unfortunately though found that there doesn't seem to be a huge amount of support after this - my midwife never called me back, and I don't have the energy to call her again just yet. I saw my gp who was lovely and referred me for a scan but then epu called me and asked me when I started bleeding so I had to tell them that I had a miscarriage which set me off in tears again!! I am sure the gp told them I'd miscarried so I found this a bit insensitive. They told me there was no need for a scan as I saw the full pregnancy loss. I haven't been offered any further help or advice but I think will go back to my gp in a few weeks to discuss.
In a way of coping and moving forward I have a few questions;
I'm still in a bit of pain and light bleeding, is this normal?
When should I expect normal period again?
We had icsi, but has anyone ever followed up an icsi cycle with an ivf cycle? There is a clinic near us who do mild stimulation ivf which sounds much less intense than icsi. We're taking it easy for 3 months to get our bodies back in order and then plans for another round hopefully in January.
Has anyone got any tips for getting rid of negative thoughts? I lay awake all night last night with the same thoughts I had a year ago....I'm too old, it might not work, I'm scared etc.
I find all of you so helpful and reassuring and am so grateful for any advice anyone has.....
Love & best baby wishes to you all
