Julia, my heart breaks for you. I know what you are feeling and it's a very sad place to be. God Bless you and DH to find the strength to heal. I'll be thinking of you.

Hi ladies! Sorry not to report in yesterday after our scan, I spent the whole evening hugging the sick bucket after we got home!

So...everything looked good. The baby was measuring back on target at 7wks3days (I was actually 7wks2days yesterday) and the heartbeat was going like a steam train (they don't measure the rate here, but it seemed fast and strong). It was SUCH a surreal thing to finally see on the screen - we have been given a little printout to take home with us, but to be honest it just looks like a 10.9mm blob, you really need the moving u/s picture to see the fluttering heartbeat! The clinic is now finished with us, we have to go and see our regular doctor and tell them our news, which we will probably do Thurs or Fri next week when DH can work from home again, and they will then get us into the hospital system, sign us up for a midwife etc. And then starts the looooong wait until our next u/s - in theory that will be at 12 weeks but depending on how busy the hospital's u/s unit is, it could be anywhere from 12 to 14 weeks. Eeeek! All good so far though, other than that I'm hating this morning sickness!

Acupuncture on Tuesday has made it a little better I think, or at least I've been able to eat a tiny bit more Wednesday and yesterday. I've still lost almost half a stone this week alone though, which I'm not happy about. I'm going again this afternoon for another session, hoping to feel more human over the weekend and that I will finally be able to stop walking around with a sick bucket in my hands 24/7!

julia - you and DH are still in my thoughts, honey. We'll miss you on the September thread. A break from IVF sounds like a good idea, give your body and mind time to heal. Don't lose touch with us, best of luck when you decide to try again.
