Hi everyone, im new to the scene. Heres my story, sorry if its long... I've been with my husband for almost 9 years ( been married almost 5 yrs). We have a beautil 6yr old. Who is smart and a smarty pants. She is a mess. 7 months after giving birth. I got on the IUD mirena. After another 4ish years i had it removed. My hubby and i have been trying for 2 1\2 years to conceive another child with no luck. Im starting to worry if the mirena could have caused problems. And now on top of it all my sister has a beautiful 8 1\2 month old little boy, and she told me yesterday that she's prego again.. whil im happy for her and her husband. I'm very much saddened because of how long it is taking me. And on top of that my daughter has started asking for a sibling.. (she even asked santa to talk to god about putting a baby in my belly for christmas) HELP!!!! I dont know what to do.. I need advice..
Signed, saddened

Well sorry to hear about you bfn munch your body is either seriously playing games or its too early for a bfp..could youhave ovulated late in your cycle and its still too early to tell maybe? Thats rubbish about your heating! Ours was playing up a few weeks ago, our landlord eventually sent someone round only for the gasman to find the thermostat on the boiler needed turning up..oops we felt very silly! Hope your keeping wrapped up in blankets til tuesday!

Hi to anyone else xxx

Hi mandie, sorry i wasnt ignoring you i just posted that before i saw your post. Welcome to the thread! I am sorry i have not heard of a mirena so cannot really comment on that part right now but will google it so you dont have to go into it all. It must be hard with your sister, i can kind of relate, i miscarried in may and was 2 weeks behind my sister in our pregnancys so when i lost mine it was very difficult for both of us, she had a beautiful boy 3 weeks ago but luckily i am pregnant again which makes it easier (and i love my new nephew!).. but it is heartbreaking watching others have what you want so badly. Anyways...stick around here for hand holding everyone here is great and can offer support x

elsabel Sun 16-Dec-12 17:26:43

Just researched it and now feel a bit silly didnt realise its a form of contraception blush . Have you spoken to a doctor to get it checked out?

mrsnec Tue 18-Dec-12 06:19:26

Hi All and welcome Mandie. Not been here in a while. I ended up in hospital after I was feeling poorly.docs tested me for everything and think I had a mini stroke but don't know what caused it. I am on the mend but need to put ttc plans on hold for a bit. Which I'm gutted about. I had an ultrasound and they showed me my tubes and ovaries are healthy but then they showed me 2 massive fibroids or that's what thought he said and what I thought I saw on the screen. He said he was going to put a gynae refferral on my file.but when I asked my consultant he hadn't done it and she said she didn't see fibroids in the images so I'm confused. Anyone had fibroids. I don't know anything about it. I'm happy with the local hospital here now though and feel more relaxed about getting checked out now. But my meds can't be taken in pregnancy so have to wait till I'm off them to start again. In other news my folks came over to help DH look after me, I had a lovely scottish roomie in hospital which helped as foreign hospitals are very scary and we're going out with her and her family on saturday night for my birthday to my favourite Japanese restaurant in Ayia Napa. Sorry for long post xx

Hi all, sorry I haven't been around much. I was celebrating my birthday last weekend. Also our heating packed in so had to organise all that. In ttc. Land no news and still no af. I've decided to forget about ttc til after new year.

Welcome maddie sorry your having a tough time ttc. It's hard watching others get pg and bless your dd praying for a sibling. I don't know about mirena but as els has said ask your gp??

Els glad all is well with you.

Mrs OMG!!!! That's sounds horrific, a stroke?? I really hope you are ok. Yes I remember you had been saying you were not feeling well and had put it down to that cream. Really glad your family came over. Take it easy and yes ttc can wait til you are fully better. But do check up on those possible fibroids when you are able to. I wish you a really happy birthday. Xxxx

HK how are you doing?

elsabel Sun 23-Dec-12 15:34:57

Oh no mrs thats awful poor you. I dont know anything about fibroids, sorry. I really hope you feel better soon and take care of yourself first, ttc when youre better. I hope you have a good bday.

Hope you had a good bday munch, good idea on having a a break from the ttc just concentrate on enjoying xmas with a few drinks!

Hi to anyone else whos looking in xxx

Hey everyone! Well docs got diagnosis wrong. MRI showed I have post infectious Encephalitis. What happened was a malfunction with my immune system has sent the flu virus haywire in my brain. Been in and out of hospital for 2 weeks. Discharged yesterday after a few days on IV steroids. Back for physio on the 2nd then Nurologist on the 9th. Spoke to my consultant again about the fibroids. She said nothing came up on my later scans. None of the other docs did ever put the gynae referral on my file either. I know what I saw and I googled it. Didn't really look like fibroids. DM wondered if I saw womb lining coming away as I started AF shortly after 1st scan. The other bad news is that my weight issue is loads worse than I thought. Hospital put me on a regime. Delightful MIL still telling everyone I had a stroke cos of my weight and the fact that she thinks I'm bone idle. Doc told me no sugar over Xmas but managed to negotiate a couple of treats. 2 dark choc almonds per day and 1 glass of fizz on crigggy day. Hospital diet will be easy to stick to I'm just going to carry on eating like I was in there. I lost 2.5 KG. Whilst being pumped full of steroids, 3 meals a day and no excercise! I'm wondering if weight is fertility issue but will go to gynae anyway if nothing happens after weight comes down. Am not supposed to ttc on meds but don't want to go on contraceptive think we will just go natural with that. Sorry for doom and gloom. Just an update. Have a merry time one and all! X

elsabel Tue 01-Jan-13 16:55:13

Sorry youve been having such a hard time mrs, are you feeling any better now? Thats very unfair how you mil speaks about you that cant make it any easier. I really hope things look up for you soon and 2013 is a happy one.

Happy new year everyone!

How is everyone else? Hk, munch, mandie? Hope everyone is ok and enjoyed the xmas week! X

mrsnec Wed 02-Jan-13 10:06:39

Hi Els how's it going?, yes Happy New Year to you all too! I'm better now but still got a way to go. Am doing everything for myself again so I'm happy with my progress. MIL is still being a pain her and DM were actualy arguing over my Xmas dinner table over which diet I should be following! She wanted us to go to hers for NYD but I couldn't face it & used my illness as an excuse! Just want to get back to normal now and looking forward to hearing all your news.

Bumpkinmunchkin Wed 02-Jan-13 13:29:48

Happy new year ladies. Wishing yous all that this is the year your dreams come true.

Mrs, you have been put through the mill these last few weeks. So glad you are coming out the other side. Take everything one step at a time. Your mil is still in rare form I see!!! Well I most certainly will join you on the weight loss buzz as I put even more weight on over the crimbo!!! In ttc land just decided to forget about it all. Still no sign of AF and prob on cd60 now. Think I will have to go to doc at some point and investigate if I am starting menapause and sort it out once and for all.

Great to hear all is going well for you Els.

How is everyone else doing?

mrsnec Thu 03-Jan-13 07:30:03

Hi Munch. Yes I hope you're right about this year. It's very stressy here at the moment. We're also trying to sell our UK house again. It's fallen through 4 times before so both of us very edgy about it & a bit sad as I feel we're giving it away. But if it goes through we'll feel it's less of a burden. I'm not thinking of ttc really at the moment either but I want to keep in touch with everyone! On the positive side I'm quite motivated about the weight thing. I think the key is to not talk about it too much (apart from on here) as lots of people think they're experts! If you find something that works for you, you can stick to it. My doc said cut down on sugar over xmas. I had none of the usual stuff. DM made me a low sugar st clements trifle for Xmas day & I had 1 little tipple of a snowball but I didn't miss pies and cakes at all. Maybe we'll start ttc again when I'm off my meds which I think might be a month or so but I'm not sure if we're supposed to wait until I've shifted all the weight? Hope not! Don't really know what to say about your situation Munch. I suppose you'll only know what's going on once you get to docs but I really hope AF shows up soon and that there's another explaination. Hope eveyone else is ok.

Hiya all, not very active on here! hope you had a nice christmas and new year :@) no news here still just plodding along hope everyone is ok and have had some good news to tell xx

mrsnec Mon 21-Jan-13 06:19:43

Hi Rachie yes v quiet here. And no good news from me. Hope everyone else is ok. Rachie I was really ill over xmas. Think my weight is causing my fertility issues so sorting that first before we start trying again so for me am all over diet and fitness threads at the moment and not conception ones but lovely to hear from you.
