Photography is something I'd really love to learn someday. How did you learn?

Mainly self taught. I took a course in digital photography, and I'm about to start a new one soon :) that will help me with photoshop as well so I'm excited. It's really fun! I love it.

Thank you ladies for your responses, sorry for not clarifying in my previous post.. but that would have been my 4th M/C in just over a year. Like I said, I have no problem getting pregnant, it's the staying pregnant that doesn't seem to be working. :?



My first loss was at 8 weeks (Feb 2011) , but I should have had a D&C afterwards, but I never did, so I never healed properly, then I got pregnant in April 2011 and lost that baby in August (I was about 17 weeks) and they decided that loss was due to not healing correctly from the previous loss.



Then I lost two more afterwards, my most recent being in April this year. We haven't tried since, being the fact that my DH deployed in May. :lol:



But from everything they've checked out, there's nothing wrong with either of us and there isn't any explained reason as to why I'm having M/C. My husband and I want to try again shortly after he gets back and that's why my OB suggested the clomid, I just wasn't sure on if that's something that would be useful in my case.

Quoting Amelia [14 Weeks]:" In addition to the things Anya suggested you might try taking baby aspirin after you ovulate. Sometimes clotting disorders can go undiagnosed even when tested for. Have you had a full RPL work up?"


A what? :oops: :lol:



I'm allergic to aspirin. :(

Quoting Amelia [14 Weeks]:" I would ask for either an HSG and saline sono or hysteroscopy (the latter being more invasive but I'm not sure which is the better test in this case) to check for scarring."


Should have mentioned that these tests also check for fibroids, polyps and other uterine anomalies (?) that can interfere with pregnancy. The first two are fairly standard as part of fertility work ups.

I think Michelle (Candyfreak) was about 2dp5dt when she started to get discouraged too. She's 14 weeks now. :)

Well, I will say even your answer made me cry just now...maybe there are some strange hormone floating around!
Well, trigger is out of my system. I will test again on Friday.

Oh lawd you'd be the second person I made cry today. It's my mom's birthday and I made her cry. I called her and played the baby's HB over the phone. It was the first time she'd heard it and she got all teary. I'm on a roll today! Who else can I make cry?

Hey ladies. This cycle was a fail. It's been 3 years and 3 months since we started treatments. I'm a complete mess. I feel like giving up cause we have put so much into the last 3 years and I'm emotionally and physically drained. We are going back the first of the year to see what the next step is :(

I'm so sorry. :( Do you think your next step will be IVF?
