Stuck in Limbo!

I’m stuck here in limbo, with my fading BFP. Every time I resign myself to the cycle having failed, I’m told to have hope and the rollercoaster spins into another loop the loop. We got our BFP on 19th Jan, but I have been slowly bleeding since then. It breaks my heart every time I go to the loo and see red on the tissue.

Finally on 28th Jan the HPT dropped to 1-2 weeks and, strangely, that made me happy as I had a clear sign that the uncertainty may be over. But the clinic asked me to stay on the drugs and I’ve been waiting for blood test results. The first result was low, just 99, so not looking good & by Saturday we should have the second reading 😣

So here I am, in limbo, wishing that time would pass more quickly. Anyone know how to speed up time?? X

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. It’s so tough.

I had a early miscarriage @ 4 and a half weeks last year and it is awful waiting- I had to wait for the 6 week scan to confirm what I knew- I’d lost the baby.

If you need to talk please pm anytime xoxo

Thank you jess1981 and I’m sorry you had an early loss... I didn’t appreciate how hard it would be. Just because it’s early it doesn’t make it feel any less significant when it happens to you 🙁. I hope you have more luck in your next cycle xx

Thank you and im so sorry you’re going through this heartache 💔 A loss is a loss especially more when so fought for. It’s what could’ve been - it’s like the dream was shattered 😭

I still have days where I cry over our loss💔 we are planning to plant a tree on the due date in our baby’s honour 💗

I am awaiting surgery as my endo symptoms are back this loss!! 😡Trying is on hold till it’s fixed.

I know it’s not much of a consolation but it is still progress that you did conceive- hold onto that. The fertility doctor maybe to prescribe additional medication next time to support the next pregnancy 😊 I’ve been issued progesterone pessaries and low dose steroids ( I have higher nk) during the early weeks. I’m sure you will do this again . This isn’t the end 💗

Thank you jess1981 it's so nice to talk to people who get it. I’m having a sad day & hope I perk myself up soon. Life is too short to spend it miserable 🙁 Endometriosis is horrible, I’m sorry you are having a bad time with it - I hope your surgery gives you some relief xxx

Oh, really? That’s good... My clinic sends off the blood samples for testing 2 x per week. So Wednesday’s sample won’t get collected until this morning, then it’ll get tested this afternoon. It feels mean 😂 x

That just makes it worse. ☹️ will they ring you with the result this afternoon?

The very nice Sister said she would keep checking the system this afternoon for the result & will call me either way before she goes home. So worst case I’ll find out in the morning. 😣
