Hi, thought I'd start the new thread. This is a brilliant thread for anyone trying to conceive or who has got a bfp after mc, full of lovely ladies, fab advice and a lovely place to metal, so called because someone said metal instead of mental and the rest is history......

Not really to worried wilde I'm finding this pregnancy really easy whereas I felt rotten with the big two and all mc pregnancys, I only have the test as I have a higher than average BMI, it came back clear with the big two aswell so fingers crossed. I don't say no to any tests though that carry no risk to wriggler, I'm a 'knowledge is power' type of person wrt pregnancy.

Glad things are going well for you wilde I generally just felt better this time smile x

That's gone so quick confused smile

Glad things seem to have settled down pixie do you live in colchester? I'm not too far from there, and we LOVE the zoo grin

Hope mumtum is ok x

MandaHugNKiss Thu 06-Sep-12 09:29:27

<hugs for Pie> Hey, hey! How you doin', Lady?

mumtum Fab news!

marrf I know this is different, but the same-ish. WIth DS2, I was in hospital at 22 weeks for a bleed (placenta previa). Stayed overnight and went down the following morning for a scan to check baby/that placenta wasn't peeling away. The sonographer is very quiet. The sonographer leaves the room and comes back with someone else and points stuff out, muttering quietly so that I can't quite hear, and they both are nodding and looking concerned. Then send me back to my room!

Later a female doctor comes in and explains they've seen a problem with the baby's heart and it's not compatible with life; I need a specialist hour long scan with a certain consultant to confirm but.. and then went on to explain in detail how they would terminate.

I had to wait TWO WEEKS for that scan (and was actually in hospital the whole time as I kept bleeding) that confirmed there was NOTHING WRONG with baby's heart (bar one of the ventricle walls being ever so slightly thicker than usual).

When I think back to how I was treated it's bloody awful. But I was 23 at the time and didn't know it should/could be any different (indeed, I'm not sure the nhs knew at the time it should/could be any different - this is 15 years ago!). It was presented to me that there was definitely an 'incompatible with life' issue and that the only thing to do was terminate. No, there might be this issue so we'll check and then these are your choices.

I am really really hoping that the issues they've seen or think they've seen with your baby are not as bad as they appear. Really hoping.

Lots of love though the ether to you and DH.

hope everything goes ok for you today martha i am crossing my fingers that it's all been a terrible mistake.

glad to hear your news mumtum

i am going for a scan in the morning. hope everything is ok. i have no reason to worry but of course i do and can't help it. if everything is ok it will be the 12 week scan next eeekkk! very nerve wracking time for me as i had my first mc a couple of days after the 12 week scan when everyone thinks you are safe. bloody mc's spoil everything.

tasmaniandevilchaser Thu 06-Sep-12 13:55:08

just popping in to say hope it goes ok today martha, thinking of you

and hi to piemistress!

and hoorah for mumtum glad it was good news

I've got my scan tomorrow, I'll be 5+1. I'm convinced it's going to be bad news, I haven't got any bleeding like with the EP but I feel a bit dizzy, though it could be stress. sad I just can't believe I could be lucky enough for it to be in the right place, pebs you're right bloody mcs (and ectopics) spoil everything! Hope we both have good news tomorrow.

StateofConfusion Thu 06-Sep-12 15:00:35

wilderumpus Thu 06-Sep-12 15:05:19

pebspop Thu 06-Sep-12 15:19:43

i am only 9-10 weeks at the moment wilde. my next scan will be the 12 weeker. which makes me nervous. i will be a wreck until 20 weeks. maybe i could relax a bit after that one. fingers crossed i get that far.

wilderumpus Thu 06-Sep-12 15:24:12

manda that's terrible!

Dorita75 Thu 06-Sep-12 20:01:08

Congratulations mumtum! Great news smile

almondavocado you're in the WTF cycle where anything can happen! 40 days isn't unusual (nothing is 'normal' in the time after a mc) and AF will probably arrive in a week or so. I'm a 25day cycle girl and mine was about 35 days after erpc. Once it did come it lasted about 5 days, then after another 8 days I got another AF for about 7 days! After that I returned to 25 days.

Hello to everyone else, so many names, I am in awe of those of you who's brains remember names and what's going on with everyone!

Can't remember who asked about preseed but yes, you can get it on Amazon! Mine arrived today, here's the link if you want to read about it yourself. Not sure if it'll work but my SIL gave up alcohol, used preseed and would lie with her legs up in the air and is now preggers with number 2, I have my fingers crossed!

Polka2 Thu 06-Sep-12 20:08:56

wilde sooooo excited congrats!

martha how did today go? Thinking of you.

Welcome to the new ladies so sorry you find yourself herewink

Well I'm day 26 on a usually bang on 30 day cycle and had a tiny weeny bit of pinky blood when I wiprd and have had nothing since, do u ladies think its the dreaded AF or possibly ( straw clutching) implantation????

Polka2 Thu 06-Sep-12 20:11:38

Ooooo mumtum great news on the scan too, must have been reassuring wink

Dorita75 Thu 06-Sep-12 20:18:24

Oh blimey polka I was in the same position this month, had blood when wiped on day 22 (25 days usually) and ended up just being 3 days early (that never happens) I had massive hopes for it being implantation! It could be anything couldn't it confused but lets all keep our fingers crossed it is implantation for you!

Polka2 Thu 06-Sep-12 20:24:57

Thanks dorita I know I'm fooling myself but just SOOOOOO want it to be bfp this would have been my due date month-fingers and toes crossedwink

MissCoffeeNWine Thu 06-Sep-12 20:51:11

Thinking of Martha today. Good news mumtum and wilde grin

Hello manda and pie!

Good luck tomorrow tas. Sorry about the anniversary Polka.

Well, I have news - Little Miss Coffee is out and in my arms. She was really in there all along. I think I have stopped metalling. Maybe. She is a pretty happy chubby 8lb little thing, luckily she was able to be born at home without interference or damage (to carpets or perineums respectively).

Thank you everyone for helping me to here wine

Polka2 Thu 06-Sep-12 20:58:42

Wowsers huge congrats misscoffee incredible it gives us all hope grin

tasmaniandevilchaser Thu 06-Sep-12 21:09:11

missc WHOOP WHOOP! I'm doing a jig of happiness for you! grin That is really wonderful news.

For those thinking of preseed, I used that this cycle and got my BFP, so I'm a fan!

martha been thinking of you today x

Midgetm Thu 06-Sep-12 21:15:46

missC I lick both you and mini c. Brings a tear to my over tired eye. Congratulations on surviving 9 months of metalling (63 months in dog months). You are a clever old thing aren't ya?
