Hi,

I'm sat here with tears streaming down my face as I have just read Hope's poem, that really strikes a chord, I will never, ever forget my 3 litle angels.

Haraspace, quite right you have a PMA, it keeps us going. There is an old friend who has just re-joined the TTC thread - Still a Mum, she is a true inspirationan to me and went through the worst time imaginable but she is still trying - we just have to have faith and keep our chins up!

Hi Ladies-Just wanted to copy a post just in case someone hasn't read the original- got my fingerscrossed that this drug will help women suffering a M/C or recurrent M/C.

Just wondered if anyone else had seen/read the news today. It seems like trials are underway relating to the use of steriods to prevent early M/C- and some success has been achieved.
Has anyone been offered this drug or has it been discussed at an consultation?
The trial was run at Liverpool uni- anyone being treated for recurrent M/C in that area?

Sorry for going on, but its a subject that close to my heart x

Tigs- (((HUGS))) you don't come across as being odd at all- You sound like a lady greiving for the loss of her child, and I understand that feeling to some degree. We wouldn't be human if we didn't feel-Take care and time to grieve X

Hi Everyone- just wanted to post about a book I'm reading which has really opened my eyes of how pg loss affects men (DP/DH's)

Its called Marley and me- Its basically about a very naughty dog, and his owners.
During the story the owners suffer a MC and the story covers this and TTC after loss- I found it a real in sight into how my DH may have been feeling- Made me cry loads- but the book is generally really funny and if you have a dog you'll love it.

Sticky baby dust to everyone x

Hi guys,

I've only just been diagnosed and I'm only 19 so although I have always wanted a family, I don't want it yet.

I'm posting in here because I just wanted to say how much I admire you all, your stories are so sad but you are so brave and you have gone through so much, I have no idea how you are all so strong, I can't begin to imagine what it's like but I really really hope everything works out for you, you deserve all the happiness in the world.

Hi im really sorry for all of you who has had a bad time and good luck to all of you who are ttc, stay positive :) .
I was diagnosed with pcos at 16, Me and my partner have been ttc for nearly 5years. I fell pregnant in April this year after not having a period for 5 months. We were over the moon and really excited. I wasnt having any complications. I went for my first scan about 8 weeks after we found out. It wasnt good news :cry: its strange though because I knew before I went something was wrong. I had a few options of what to do next so I choose to have a DnC. I thought it would be the "easiest" way (if there is one) to deal with it. I Feel awful at the moment as my friend has just had a baby and I havent got mine growing in me any more. I would have been due in december. Does anyone know what the chances of having another "silent miscarriage" would be?
Hope your all well. :)

Really sorry for your loss-((HUGS))
On the silent miscarriage front, also known as missed miscarriage I'm not sure of the chances of having a second (sorry) I've suffered two mmc's (and 2 natural mc's) No-ones said what the chances are of having a third.
If you ask your GP or consultant they may be able to help.

((hugs))

Kimbo - I was told by my doc that 1 miscarriage does not give you any increased chance of having a second one. It is only after 2 that statistically you have an increased chance of another one.

Thanks for the replies.
I dont really like going to my doctor, she just seems to fob me off really. I normally get "ohh your so young blah de blah". I havent had any information about pills/treatment, so any information would be much appreciated.
Im glad I found this website! :)

A good book to have a read at is Miscarraige what every woman needs to know- written by Professor Lesley Regan- Its about £8-99- but answers alot of questions.

Great news Tigs congratulations hope you are getting on well with your pregnancy!!

Hope that poem is beautiful & really touched a nerve!! I'm still waiting for confirmation tomorrow but 90% certain I've just had my 2nd mc!! The 1st was mmc after ivf with twins!! This BFP was a complete shock because I only had OD 3 weeks before & no clomid, short lived though as started bleeding quite heavily.

Just wanted to send (((((hugs))))) to you all xx
