There seems to be quite a lot of new people on here so you may not remember me. i don't come on here very often. I suffered my first mc in january 2011 and went on to have four in total the last one being may 2012. we decided to take some time out as it was totally affecting our lives and relationship and i set out to lose two stone which i achieved. just before christmas we started trying again and i'm pleased to say that we were successful and i had my 12 week scan yesterday and all is good.
I had the recurrent miscarriage tests and all was clear which didn't really seem very helpful - we were just sent away and told it was bad luck!
the only difference this time was that when i got my positive test i had no spotting around the time of af whereas with each mc i had some spotting.
as a stab in the dark i was prescribed progesterone pessaries to take twice a day up to 12 weeks which are gross but seriously i'd have tried eating snot if it would work!!!!
so i hope you all have happy stories to tell in the near future - and believe me - if we can do it - anyone can. don't give up but also don't be afraid to take some time out. it really does go quicker than you exptect
