Sorry to hear about your endo, Tina, it is (I gather) nasty to have - I do know that the surgery improves your chances quite a bit, though.

We're still hanging in here, I think I can manage to make it to the scan on Friday so I'm just praying that is good news - it is unlikely to be conclusively negative but it might be inconclusive as it will be quite early still (6w - for those like, erm, the nameless shipmate who rang me the other night, who don't understand pregnancy dating, this does NOT mean I've known I'm pregnant for 6 weeks nor does it mean 6 weeks since conception...).

ETA Page 5 - and not all the posts by me!

Thank you all so much for your prayers - the scan was, erm, fine. More than fine. We saw a heartbeat! I'm in a bit of a state of shock to be honest, not helped by very little sleep last night, but this is very good news.

Okay, I'm a bit [Yipee] . I admit it.

Not out of the woods yet - I think a heartbeat at 6 weeks means about an 80% chance - so this increases our chances but we would still appreciate more prayers. We're back for another scan in 2 weeks.

Well, that kicks ass, Chukovsky. Here is a prayer that we have used at home during Suusan's pregnancies, that I thought I would share:

O Lord God Almighty, Creator of all things and the Giver of all knowledge, Thou has fashioned our bodies from the earth, and breathed into our nostrils the breath of life and granted unto mankind thy blessing that we might increase and multiply through the birth giving of women to children.

We beseech Thee now O Thou who lovest mankind to bless thy Handmaid, CHUKOVSKY, who is with child, granting her strength and health and a sure sense of thy presence, and bring her to a safe delivery. Yea, O Lord, open Thou the treasury of thy mercies and thy compassions unto her, and let her give birth to a fruitful vine, that s/he may be a cause of joy unto the length of her days.

Keep safe from harm the child she bears that in due time s/he may see both the light of day and the light of thy kingdom.

Give thy grace unto thy servant, MR SPOUSE, O Lord that he may be a strong, loving and wise support, showing the same love for his wife that thy Son showed for his bride, the Church.

For Thou art blessed, together with thine only begotten Son, and thine all-Holy, good and life-giving Spirit: now and ever and unto ages of ages. Amen.

Thank you all for your continued prayers - I'm still quite nervous to be honest though less so than I was before the scan - unfortunately once you have had as many miscarriages as me, and when the heartbeat is seen quite early, the realistic chance is more or less exactly 80%. But I keep telling myself that is a good chance.

Thank you all - I had a slightly stressful day yesterday but I think I have managed to work out how to tell Personnel about my ante-natal appointments without having to tell my big-mouthed head of dept. Other than that no news is probably good news... I keep saying that, don't I?

Well, that's a good sign. Frankly, I hope your pregnancy hormones are running so high that you are sick! (In the nicest possible way, of course!)

Mrs M & I are trying again. We're keen for MiniMatrix (who just keeps getting more amazing every day) to have a sibling.

Mrs M has been injecting for the last few weeks. This week is the week for the ops.

Our protocl varies from the norm again as we don't want to create "spares" and we keep getting reminded how this affects our chances. We only have to look at MiniM to know that it's only partly in the hands of doctors, but it does play in the mind.

Either friday or the following monday will be transfer day. Please pray.
