Just popping in for an update
2 months to go till our trip to europe so I am anxiously awating that. It should be good and I am looking forward to it!
I havent had AF since I stopped the pill which I expected really. It sucks. But I had loads of EWCM last weekend so who knows I might have O'd
A couple of weeks ago I went to the doctor because of the pain in my wrist which I thought might be a displacement or RSI but the doctor ordered blood tests because he thinks it might be linked to my other "injuries" I have bad lower back problems, a bad neck which has me waking up every morning with my shoulder stuck to my ear(or thats what it feels like), I also have pains in my left hip and knee and my right ankle.
He sent me for blood tests for rheumetoid arthritis and two of the tests came back postive with more than double normal levels.
I am waiting to see the specialist on september 12th but it looks likely.
My GP mentioned that as this is an autoimmune disease and its basically where your body attacks itself not recognising itself and it could also be the reason behind my miscarriages.
Maybe this could be an answer and finally lead me to having a baby one day.
In any case thats my update
WOW its been a long time since I read this journal.
I thought I would update as we are going to be TTC again.
We were going to do IVF again but the money it costs is just not atainable at the moment so we are going with Chinese herbs and accupuncture.
I have seen this guy 3 times now and AF came on its own for the first time in 2 years!!! I start herbs next week!
He said it will either happen really quickly or take a long time. I've been going for 12 years and Im only 34 so while I have some time age wise I feel like I should be retiring.
Im gonna give it another year and if we don't get our miracle Im gonna make the decision to stop!
Over the past 12 years we've been through a lot, quit a couple of times taken breaks for months at a time but I know its coming to an end sooner or later!
Anyway there is my update.
Okay I've been on the herbs, ovulated a week and a half ago and I think that Im pregnant!
So joy, exhiliation, happy thoughts........No!
The first part is just getting knocked up, then I must go through the daily motions hoping and praying that I'll make it another day. Its gonna make for an extremely long 9 months if I make it that far. I have to make it past 5 weeks. If I can then I have to make it to 6 weeks and the heartbeat scan, then after that I'll wait until week 13 starts to actually tell anyone, celebrate or buy stuff!
I hate waiting!
I've felt like I caught the egg this cycle but the symptoms I've had are very come and go at the moment so I really dont know what to make of it.
My BB'ies are killing me and I am exhausted at the end of the day and I feel like AF is coming. I'd be about 13DPO-ish
I tested today but not with FMU and got a very very faint line. I can see it but when I tried to scan it or take a picture of it its not so visible.
Im going to test again tomorrow.
Pray that this is not another heartbreak for me
I see the line. I really really have my fingers crossed for you. GL with testing tomorrow
