After what has felt like an eternity since the miscarriage, we find ourselves here again – starting over. It gets harder every time, but no matter how hard this journey is, we won’t ever give up on having our take home baby. So, with that in mind, we now begin Clomid cycle number 3 – third time lucky perhaps??
So far we’ve had a 100% success rate at falling pregnant whilst taking Clomid, we just need to have 100% success in staying pregnant… If this cycle follows the previous two, I should be testing around when our next appointment with Dr “James” is due. Obviously I’ll be seeing him with good news and hoping that I’ll be able to get early scans etc arranged through him rather than having to see the GP and then wait weeks before hearing anything from the hospital of our choice. How’s that for PMA and forward thinking eh! If we don’t have our BFP by then, well at least I can explain to him what’s happened since our last appointment in January and hopefully still get put into place a system whereby I’m not left worrying and waiting weeks for a scan, before biting the bullet and paying for it myself.
Also as we don’t seem to have heard anything about the recurrent miscarriage appointment, maybe Dr “James” will be able to arrange any necessary tests or get the referral pushed through for us, or maybe just advise on what we/I should be doing or taking to help avoid another miscarriage… I’ve read things about low progesterone (I’ve no idea if I have this) and being given Progesterone suppositories to help support the pregnancy; or taking low dose Aspirin but I’m certainly not going to self-medicate especially as I’m all too aware of what Aspirin can do to a person. As always I’ll be looking for answers.
So here we are, starting over, again…
