Dear all my truly special friend<br><br>As you know I have the funeral arrangements this Wednesday for Oliver and the post mortem results on Friday and then the funeral next Friday so all go.<br>As you can imagine I still feel crap about it all and very worried.<br>I have a CONFESSION.................<br>I still feel very dodgy writing this and I am sure you will all understand why I hve been quite (especially for me!!!) and still feel very nervy and will till way past 20 weeks but<br>I AM PREGNANT!!!!<br>We did another FET before getting the results (long story but had to talk them into it a bit 0- they wanted me to wait until after xmas I ask you) we got 2 out of 2 again and bingo I hpt'd on Saturday - 2 weeks after ET (which was day of the rugby and I nearly shook them out)and positive - did another yesterday because unlike last time no sore boobs and don't feel pg at all - I always have sore boobs. Still pg and just got my day 16 bloods back and bingo HCG of over 1000 - last time it was 310 on day 15 so we are one day later - so not counting chickens or mini me's yet. Clearly we are delighted but as you can imagine bricking it and can't sleep or relax at all.<br>With love to you all for the support<br>Tracey<br>xxxx

I am so pleased for you Tracy..There was no other result possible for you other than +ive..would have been so damn unfair any other way.<br>I can't imagine how mixed feelings you are about it all..but just break it all into little chapters and get through one little bit at a time. <br><br>I knew that my Feb 2003 cycle buddie would do it..some how ..some time..<br><br>All my love Becky B

That is the best news I have heard in absolutely ages. I could not be happier for you - can't believe it!!<br><br>Bet you feel like you're walking on eggshells at the mo, but think positive - there's no reason why anything other than good things will happen for you this time. You rest up girl and I'm wishing the time to fly by for you.<br><br>Couldnt happen to nicer person - so so so so happy, you've made my day (week, month, etc, etc!!!).<br><br>Jo. XXXX.<br>

Tracey<br><br>OMG I can't believe it, I'm so pleased for you. This is absolutely brilliant news and couldn't happen to a nicer person. <br>This week will truly be hard on you both with the funereal for Oliver but at the same time emotions will be high for your exciting news. I will be thinking of you on Wednesday when hopefully I will be in Labour after being induced tomorrow night. <br>Take care<br>All my love <br>Emma<br>x<br><br>

wow. fantastic news. am so very pleased for you. HCG levels sound very high - maybe twins? wouldn't that be super!! I can understand that you will be nervous for the first half of the pregnancy and that is understandable in the circumstances of what you have had to go through but the others are right, every pg is different and you have as much chance as any of us, if not more. Also you will have the p/m results which may shed some light on anything they may need to do slightly differently this time - eg drugs to increase blood flow to the uterus etc. I know of someone who went through exactly what you went through at almost the same time (m/c at 22 weeks) and has refused to have the p/m done as she said it would be too upsetting. She too is trying to get pregnant again, but somehow I feel if she had the results it would help her in the next pg if they do need to change anything. Hope you don't mind me sharing that with you. all the very best for this Friday and Oliver's funeral next Friday. I will be thinking of you. lots of love beckym (ps I cycled with you back in Feb/March)xxx

Tracey<br><br>You've made me go all goose-bumpy and I've started to cry (slightly hormonal at the mo!). This is the most fantastic news. Some people are just meant to be mummy's and you my love most definitely are.<br><br>You both must be very nervous and apprehensive at the moment which is so understandable.<br><br>I'll be thinking of you both on Wednesday.<br><br>With love<br><br>Rachel<br>x

Oh Tracey, that is the most fantastic news - I'm with Rachel on this one and in tears as I type this. <br><br>Obviously your emotions are all over the place but there's no reason why this shouldn't be a happy, healthy pregnancy and heaven knows that you deserve it.<br><br>Thinking of you both and little Oliver in the next two weeks.<br><br>Jules
