Wow this is depressing. April. 7 months I’ve been TTC now and half that time was spent pregnant with an unviable pregnancy. At almost 38 this is not a good use of time.
Ok rant over. Let’s hope April is our lucky month girls.

I can absolutely relate to this, we intended to conceive this year (before I turn 37 in August) and we did it on 1 Feb and now just waiting to try again :(

Fingers crossed I will get a shot this month.

It definitely can be depressing. My niece turned one last month, was a total 'whoopsie' for her parents and was conceived 8 months into us already trying :cry:

18 months TTC.
My acupuncturist wanted to order some bloods and ultrasound. My GP left, who was amazing, and I’m yet to find someone I love. I went to one of the other GPS in the clinic to ask for referrals and she just questioned me and said why should I do this. There were 3 things she didn’t know what they were or how they were relevant so she refused to give me a referral.
I left really upset.

I’m sorry @Blizzy , it’s hard when you build such a good relationship with a GP then have to deal with a new one.
Going out for a fancy dinner tonight so thought I’d check this morning (12DPO) and a STARK negative on FRER. Sigh. Was hopeful but not surprised really with a negative as no early pregnancy symptoms.

@Blizzy thats a terrible experience. GPs should create a safe space for women to talk about these things. I’m really sorry that happened - I would look on the internet at the GP profiles local to you and find one that specialises in women’s fertility and health.

Having a check up tomorrow, it will be 2w2d post d&c - since Saturday I have had a short heavy bleed every second day... today I thought the bleeding had all finally stopped and then walking back from the coffee shop had a short bleed that soaked my underwear :( but it wasn’t as bad as the previous bleeds at least. I’m over it!

@Blizzy On what grounds can a GP refuse a referral? What right do they have to say no? That is ridiculous, I agree with @nomviv though, find a GP that specialises in women's health, its what i did and shes been great and very understanding. I'm sorry you had to go through that.

CD01 for me which means I'll start FSH injections tomorrow, scary but also a little exciting.

@StephA thats great! I’ve been through 6 rounds of ivf (although will be ttc naturally since we lost the only embryo that didn’t have my husbands genetic condition - we have 3 on ice that have the condition if we are desperate).

I didn’t really have any issues with the injections... I would get symptoms of morning sickness once I started the orgalutran on day 5 but was always fine by 11am (unlike my actual real morning sickness which was all day). I hope it goes just as smoothly for you!

She refused on the grounds that she doesn’t know why it was necessary and even whatever results came back she wouldn’t know what to do with them. I said that’s fine I’m not asking her for advice it’s for the acupuncturist.

After doing no tracking this cycle, I have woken today with serious cramping. No bleeding yet. I did a HPT Yesterday which was negetive so I’d say today AF will arrive. 34 day cycle.
Makes sense since we had failed BD attempt on CD 19&20 since we were camping and zero privacy

It’d be great if naturopaths and acupuncturists could orders bloods and testing, make things a lot easier for us all.
CD1 here too, took its sweet time I’ve been cramping for 3 days. Maybe we’ve all synced up...

That's all I usually get for about two days before AF every time and then (like yesterday) it comes on like a freight train lol

HCG has dropped from 80,000 to 249 which is good. Getting retested next Monday I hope it can get down to zero by then???
