Hi all. Although I have been a member of the forum for a few months, this is my first post and I just wanted to say how helpful it has been to me over the past few weeks.
My partner and I have been trying to conceive our first child for over 2 years - been through all the tests with the NHS and had been referred to IVF. The day after getting the IVF referral, I found out we had conceived naturally. All the excitement followed. I had my dating scan on Friday, however, only to find I had a mmc. There baby had stopped growing at 8 weeks.
Naturally, we are completely heartbroken and it is today that my body has decided to deliver the tissue (if that's the right phrasing). I am so grateful, however, that there are so many honest and supportive women (and men) on here who have been willing to share their stories and offer help to others. Reading posts and knowing how many other people have been through this helped to protect me a little when the news broke. Your stories of subsequent success have helped lift our spirits for a more positive outcome next time. You are all kind and generous and I wanted to say how your messages are helping even the silent members of this forum. Thank you. X
