I don’t want to get my hopes up…

TTC for 2.5 years, doing a pregnancy test feels me with dread, I just don’t want to deal with seeing a negative. After multiple positive LH strips I was advised to try an HGC test. This is the result… I’m going to do a pregnancy test in the morning. From your past experience does this mean pregnant, I’ve never done ...

How quickly did your cycle recover?

Hello girls. My baby is 6 months old. He is breastfeeding and introducing complementary foods. A month and a half ago, for the first time after giving birth, menstruation came. But it's been a month and a half since my period hasn't come. If pregnancy is ruled out, how long did it take for your cycle to recover?

First midwife appointment

Hi, I am 7 weeks today, according to the apps and my first midwife appointment isn’t until the middle of June, and it’s only a telephone appointment. Apparently I’ll have another appointment a week or so after that. By that point I’ll be almost 10 weeks, which seems far to long to go without seeing anyone or havin...

Clomid after MC

I had 1 cycle of clomid and fell pregnant after 4 years of trying to conceive. However today I'm heartbroken as the pregnancy ended in miscarriage after 5 weeks. Can I take clomid again straight away? My day 2 is tomorrow (when I shod take the first tablet) and being a Sunday I have no doctor to ask.
