Spotty, I am so sorry. I onow there is nothing to say that can make you feel better right now, but I am thinking of you and your family.
Take care of yourself.

Spotty, I am so so sorry. This is so heart-wrenching and I know no amount of comforting words will help.
Will be thinking of you.
Indigo, I wanted to say Happy 40th birthday hun!!! i am sure your baby and its racing heartbeat were the greatest birthday pressie for you. I am very happy for you. You deserve this.
Wishful, glad that DH was so sweet and you are feeeling better.
AFM : Thanks ladies for your wishes. I wasnt really myself honestly as the days neared scan, feeling really unsettled and increasingly anxious...I am really hopeless I know...thank you all for putting up with me. Even when DH came back to fetch us out for lunch before the scan, I was experiencing shortness in breath...I was just jittery and moody. Felt like I was going to drop dead anytime from the anxious unknown!
We had two embies transferred and scan showed we are having a single pregnancy. Our little bean is 1cm and heartbeat 148bpm. All is well. I finally was able to breathe properly. Sonographer says I am 7weeks4days so my due date is 20 Oct.

What a bittersweet day.
Mum2one, so so happy for you that is great news. I know exactly what you mean about being able to breathe properly.
Spotty, I am shocked and truly devastated for you. Thinking of you and your DH.

M2ODS - congratulations on your scan!
Spotty - I'm so sorry.... There's really nothing else I can say. I've just typed five different sentences and none of them sum up what I'd like to convey. My thoughts are with you and your family x

Girls i will be lurking, good luck to you all. Thank you all for your support.

Spotty, I'm so sorry.
Thinking of you and your DH. Sending big hugs your way. Xo
M2ODS, congratulations hun! A huge relief, I'm sure.
Wishful, I hope you haven't had any more worrying brown CM? Definitely take it easy if you can. I imagine it's not easy with another little one to look after.
Big hi to everyone else! Just a quick post from me today as I sneak in a teeny bit of Internet time. The birthday festival is going well.

I'm due in June after 3 cycles of IVF- so this isn't the BG for me but my personal messenger is playing up and I really wanted to say congratulations to three ladies from my old DOR and PGD buddy groups. I hope you don't mind
BIG FAT HOORAYS AND ALL THE BEST to Indigo
and Wishful Thinking
- I absolutely couldn't believe my eyes when I had a stalk of the old threads last night. I tried to PM each of you but to no avail and couldn't walk away without offering my most sincere fist pumps and happy dance waddles.
Indigo I hope you enjoy switching up from one end of the Terrace to the other- my twins are also being delivered by a very popular female obs...we must have the same taste in medical practitioners
Okay I'll take my big tummy and scram now- good luck to everyone with their upcoming nuchals and so on!

Hi Siohan1980, thank you so much
! Congratulations to you too! I remember we pm each other before. Not long now to June. You are always welcome, we are all on the same road.
How's everybody feeling? I seem to have a bit of right side headache since yesterday...very mild but I hardly get headaches. Tried to sleep it off but even when I feel tired, I cannot fall asleep at bed-time. I really dont like struggling to fall asleep. Was telling DS how lucky he is being able to zonk out once his head hit the sack. I also experienced some prickly cramps yesterday late arvo and at night...like there was a little cactus in my womb
Do you girls still drop hair at this stage? I thought pregnant women dont drop hair (I remember not when I was pregnant with DS though not sure when that started) but I still am having hair fall out as per normal days.
When are you ladies seeing your OB for the first time? I think mine is end of this month.
Tomorrow I will be 8 weeks.

Thanks Siobhan1980 and good luck for the arrival of your twins in June. You'll definitely have your hands full!
Mum2one, I am getting headaches at the moment too but the main thing I can't get over is the tiredness. I can't remember when/if that stops. I am still having hair fall too, same as normal. It does stop falling out at some stage but again, can't remember. Think My brain has already become mushy preggo brain!
I have my ob appt Monday week, I'll be 9 weeks exactly. Congrats on crossing the 8 wk mark.
Hi to everyone else.
