Statistics

I was thinking the other day, as I face yet another monthly blood test, of my stats since we started on this long ttc journey.

So here's what I have counted so far:

Number of months since we started trying to conceive: 28
Number of BFPs: 4
Number of losses: 4
Number of ERPCs (D&C's): 2
Number of blood tests: 18 approx
Number of dildo cam scans: 17
Number of laparoscopies & hysteroscopies: 1 of each
Number of general anaesthetics: 3
Number of hcg injections: 30 (2 more to go this month)
Number of clomid cycles: 2
Number of Euro spent on all of the above: 2,600 + approx
Number of successful pregnancies: Nil
Age at next birthday: 40

And they tell me to relax and try not to dwell on it?

Edited to revise upwards no of dildo cam scans and amount of money spent.

Oooof! I can't imagine how hard it has been losing your pregnancies. x

Jesus, I really don't know what to say.

I actually thought it was 3 losses. Which was bloody bad enough.

You must think we are the biggest whingers on the planet.

And probably, you'd be right, I don't think we could manage to pick ourselves up if we faced what ye have.

The statistics are borderline absurd at this stage.

I genuinely & honestly hope you get what you both deserve, I really do.

Oh, my dear. That sucks. It just ABSOLUTELY sucks. I am so sorry. And on it goes.

*Hugs*

(I've lost count of my dildo-cams. Which is just as well).

@ WFI - it's not just the pregnancy losses, it's the not getting pregnant again that's killing me these days. Or rather the not being allowed to ttc.

@ X box - one of those losses was what I suppose would be termed a chemical pregnancy. As in I got a BFP around cd 29, it became fainter as the days progressed, and four or five days later I started to bleed and the BFP was no more. It wasn't as traumatic as the other later losses we went through, but it was still distressing at the time.

@ May - yes it sucks big time.

god I dunno about traumatic and less traumatic.

I think I'd be certifiable whatever the circumstances.
