For any new folks needing to join this thread is for:

for those who are having problems getting pg

or staying pg

or are simply fed up of being told to relax and having to smile and say "you never know"

here is the old thread but I love our new joint here!

I have linked the old thread in case you did not get broccoli's update Lissie sad.

I will have to dust off my fancy 1920's clothes to come in here, looks too swanky by far for jeans and tee-shirt!!!!

Happy Christmas Lissie grin

broccolitrees Thu 23-Dec-10 18:06:35

hi girls
thanks for the link - have managed to find you. loving the 20's style gin joint, will dig out my vintage clotheswink
still have a high bhcg and still have waves of morning sicknesssad and sore boobssad in fact, if i didn't know better i would think i was pregnant. next blood test after christmas. i'm alright i suppose, just wish we could move on.
hope everyone else is well.

wewishyouamerrylissiemas Thu 23-Dec-10 18:08:38

broccoli, i cant imagine what you must be going through. you must feel that you are stuck in limbo sad they have ruled out an ep havent they?

broccolitrees Fri 24-Dec-10 18:13:54

they haven't totally ruled out ep but the beta hcg is going down slowly so it is unlikely to do me any harm and as it's going down i think they this it will just reabsorb eventually and my bhcg will go back to 0

Is it wrong to frequent to hut on Christmas Eve when most others are so damn excited about Christmas?!

This year has been spectacularly awful for us, 4.5yrs of ftc with 4 mc's (2 this yr), 3 rounds of IUI, 3 Clomid months and now the nhs is cutting back on IVF funding meaning we probably no longer qualify... I'm at my wits end and all I want for Christmas is a baby.

And breathe.

Sorry to hear what you're going through Broccoli, hope you manage to enjoy some of Christmas.

how is everyone else?

broccolitrees Mon 27-Dec-10 12:33:38

hope everyone was able to have a good christmas. we did have a lovely time dh excelled himself in the present department with a new handbag, for me that isgrin. dd was so excited about the stuff she had given us, which we both knew about but pretended we didn't - lol!
sorry to see you here picknmix i remember you from a long time back on a conception thread, before i realised that miscarriage was a regular occurence for me (i was shreksmissus). sounds like you have had a rough time, hope this year brings you happiness

RudolfThePinkNosedReindeer Mon 27-Dec-10 14:55:46

Hello nice ladies, can I join you? I'm ttc number 1, had a MC in June at 8 weeks, and then a CP last week Am trying to stay sane and relaxed about the TTC thing but to be honest I am failing to convince anyone!! I also lurk about on the MC threads but am starting to feel a bit left behind on there as most people seem to get pg and disappear again within a couple of months

wewishyouamerrylissiemas Mon 27-Dec-10 18:24:19

broccoli, glad you had a good christmas! what bag did you get? <drool> ds got us up at 7.30, and his face was a picture as he realised that the big man had been. dh did well too, he got me a new phone! myu last one was broken and fell against teh wall blush

rudolph, welcome to the hut, sorry you are here. ikwym about everyone graduating. thats why this is the only conception thread i use now x

broccolitrees Tue 28-Dec-10 12:36:15

lissie dh got me a fatface bag - very nice! haha about your phone 'falling' against a wall! what did you get your ds? we got dd a watch as she is learning/has learnt to tell the time and other bits; however we couldn't decide whether she was overwhelmed or underwhelmed!!!
sorry you're here rudolph but you're welcome as long as you need to besad

wickedwitchofwaterloo Tue 28-Dec-10 14:37:26

Oooh, this thread is just what I need!

I've been putting on a positive face but really I'm gutted about everything.

I had a M/C about 5 weeks ago, I would have been 12 weeks on Christmas day, which is when were hoping to have had a scan and be able to announce to everyone sad

Been TTC for about 3.5years and I had IVF earlier this year due to polycystic ovaries, blocked tubes and a fibroid but had to stop due to severe OHSS, then, lo and behold while waiting for my cycles to get back normal to have a frozen cycle, I fell pregnant naturally. I tested positive on the Tuesday morning and began M/C on the Thursday night.

Now not sure what is going on with the IVF, have been summoned to an appointment in the GYN clinic early next year hmm

Am bored of everyone telling me that while the M/C is sad, I should be excited that I can get pregnant. Obviously this is true, but I'm bloody upset and I just feel it was the cruelest way to end the year after everything else... Anyway, I am donning my flapper dress and demanding a large gin (or five!)

RudolfThePinkNosedReindeer Tue 28-Dec-10 17:52:36

Hi all thanks for the welcome - I've brought a ton of Christmas chocolate with me if anyone is keen??? I think I'm going to vom if I eat another belgian seashell grin witch that really sucks sad, can completely identify with you being p*ssed off at people's comments, definitely not helpful at all. Is your DP supportive?

wewishyouamerrylissiemas Wed 29-Dec-10 11:00:40

broccoli, ds got soooo much stuff. lots of playmobil (and i have the bleeding fingers to show for it) but our family/main present was a wii. he is currently playing a dinosaur game!

witch, sorry you are here, but welcome to the hut. people say some shit things dont they? people tell me im lucky to not be infertile, until i explain that my womb is not fertile enough to carry a child. therefore I am infertile, and they are insensitive. i may have less patience now than I did...

<grabs all chocolates off rudolph>

kat2504 Thu 30-Dec-10 11:47:23

That is a very insensitive comment, am flabbergasted by the number of people who trot that one out.
I, for one, would have rather found out that I can conceive by the safe delivery of a baby. A miscarriage is not the way any of us wanted to discover this ability.

Another one that is dumb is " you can try again". Well yes of course I can. I can have sex whenever I want you daft idiots.

And if it only happened when "the time is right" there would be no unplanned teenage pregnancies etc.

I know they mean well, but really!!!

wewishyouamerrylissiemas Thu 30-Dec-10 11:55:48

or, there must have been something wrong with the baby.

how fucking dare they? my babies were perfect. some may have had blonde hair, some may have been redheads. one might have been good at sports, another good at reading.

wewishyouamerrylissiemas Mon 03-Jan-11 14:05:56

how is everyone doing? ive been really ill over the last week with my ribs so if i do manage to get upduffed itll be a bloody miracle. broccoli, any news?

uggmum Mon 03-Jan-11 14:15:09

Hi, is there room in your hut for me. nearly 3 years of ttc for dc3. Unexplained infertility.

4 rounds of clomid, became pregnant but miscarried at 8 weeks. That was 3 weeks ago.

Giving up hope. If I am told to relax one more time I will kill someone. Also fed up with being told I am lucky I have 2 dc already and that I am prob too old (am 39).

I have 12 mths worth of nhs treatment left. Have now booked expensive holiday for August.

wewishyouamerrylissiemas Mon 03-Jan-11 14:42:07

hi uggmum, welcome to the hut, sorry that you have to be here, osnt it frustrating. how old are your dcs

uggmum Mon 03-Jan-11 20:03:21

Hi, dd is 11, ds is 7. dd is a clomid baby but ds was natural. Quite a surprise as I was told that it was unlikely that I would ever fall pregnant without help.

JRsandCoffee Mon 03-Jan-11 20:54:07

Hello, can I join? 36 ttc #1 and have just merrily drunk my way through christmas on the back of Clomid, I presume I've just ovulated as my left ovary has apparently been laying a duck egg for the last two days..........

Is it wrong to have just taken folic acid with final glass of wine before the january detox????

Nice gin joint, likey much smile

MummyAbroad Tue 04-Jan-11 13:23:48

<<waves to Pink and Kat>>

Have you got room for one more? I am a bit of a thread whore actually, I am on loads grin, but this one seems to fit the bill exactly!

I have Ashermans, I live in Costa Rica and over the last year have seen 5 very crap doctors and had lots of very crap treatments for conditions I didnt have (PCOS, Molar Pregnancy, pulmonary embolism) before finally flying to London to get treated by an AS specialist. I have one DS and one MMC under my belt.

I have just finished six weeks of high dose HRT which I survived quite well until last night when I decided to have a filthy row with DH and now I am being stubborn and refusing to make up blush I am nearly at the end of treatment and in a few days will be able to TTC (if I still have a DH then!) but have been told that the best chances are if we conceive within three months, after that chances drop off massively and I will probably need more treatment in England - which I cant afford <<fear emoticon>>

The hut of doom really is where I belong right now!

JRs folic acid/wine combo is perfectly acceptable in my book grin <<hands out tray of wine and folic acid for all>>
