Me again (well, who else?). On the theme of hospital appointments (see the Prayer thread) we finally have our appointment with the consultant on Monday, and the secretary kindly rang me yesterday to tell me the results were back (they said it could take 3 months) so at least we'll have something to talk about. I guess we're hoping this might help us know what to do next, but you never really know, do you?

Hope all is well with the other occasional visitors to this thread. Kentishmaid, did you end up dragging Kentishmaster to the GP?

I just wanted to thank all the people who have posted their experiences on here. I don't often post but I have found it really helpful reading about other people who are going through similar experiences to mine (18 months of trying so far).
This thread has been a real encouragement- Thanks!

"Apparently normal"... at least that's what the genetics analysis said about both of us. You may not agree with him... but Mr. Spouse is quite chuffed at this description.

All the other results were, we already knew, fine, so this does give us a better prognosis than if something had come back as an explanation, but doesn't really give us any answers, or a clear path forwards.

I'm sorry that I didn't see your post, Tina, but this thread seems to spend a lot of time languishing on page 4 or even 10... hope it goes/went OK.

We have some news. We've just found out I'm pregnant again. I rang the hospital today but they haven't rung back yet, and I'm away for work (not very far away, and I'm taking the car in case I need to come home suddenly) for the next two days, but if last time is anything to go by they will ask us in for a scan in 2 weeks time, assuming I get that far - the last two times I haven't, and it's all been over by about 5 weeks.

Please say some prayers for us, the extra strong kind with the screwed up eyes would be good. I'm very scared.

The appointment today went OK, but as I only had blood tests, and no scan, I can't tell you anything more than than that! On other fronts no news is, of course, good news.

I'm still very nervous, and when the registrar suggested coming back in two weeks I asked if I couldn't come back next week - so I have another appointment for next Friday, when they will be doing a scan.

Nope [Biased]

Continuing prayers for chukovsky, Mr Spouse and the little one. Thank you for sharing this exciting but scary bit of your journey. [Votive]

As for me, I had my appointment yesterday, saw the consultant I saw 18 months ago. He's given me a definite diagnosis of endo, fairly severe. I've been told to go ahead with all the other tests, and that if it is the endo causing the fertility issues it will need specialist surgery [Help] . But it is at least a relief to have a diagnosis, and not wonder if it would all be fine if I just lost weight, or ate more pineapples or something [Roll Eyes] .
