I know, I 'm the same. Had a MC in April and have been trying ever since. On CD33 today, but will not test for a few days as I cannot put up with seeing another negative

yeah i know that feeling and misscarriages and ectopics etc are so hard to deal with but the person who did the scan wasnt very sympathetic at all when i found out she just said oh theres nothing in your womb must be ectopic as clear as brass and said you will have to go into surgery i went within the 24 hours they didnt even give me and my husband chance to come to terms with what they said at one point they wasnt even gonna let me ring him to tell him as i only went for a check up,
well il keep my fingers crossed for you and i will keep you posted il test again in a few days i think see what happens

OMG, that is awful!!! Some people should not do the jobs they do, because they lack the basic skills! I really hope that it works for you this time and that you never experience awful treatment like that again. May I ask which hospital you were at?
When I started spotting at 13wks, I went into A&E @ Manchester St Mary's and they were all very nice and sympathetic apart from the receptionist.
We arrived there at 11AM and I was told that there was a 4 hour wait. My partner then called my midwife and she told us to complain. So I complained and asked for a manager. The receptionist said that there was nobody available and that midwife did not know what she was talking about. And then she said: ' Well love, you are all in the same boat!' I got really upset and sat there quietly crying my eyes out. I saw 2 nurses before they sent me for a scan - 2 hours later I had 3 scans. The person who did the scan was lovely, bless her I felt for her a bit cos when she said that she could not see a heatbeat, I just broke down and could not stopped sobbing. They escorted me into this quiet office and I waited for another nurse. She was nice also, she explained all the options and asked if I was ok to make a decision straight away or if I wanted time to think about everything.
I opted for D&C and had it done the following Monday (5 days later). All in all, they were all extremely nice apart from the rude receptionist. Obviously we were not all in the same boat because most of the ladies walked of there reassured that their babies were ok and I walked out knowing that my baby was gone
Please keep me posted hun, I really hope that this is your month!!!
xxxx Good Luck xxxx

your right some people shouldnt do certain jobs when some jobs require politeness and compasion. i went to women and childrens hospital in hull, i could of gone to york but they sent me to hull i wish they never now, i complained and my husband was really angry because it went from just a check up to finding out it was ectopic in the rudest way possible then to be told to make a choice surgery or injections and they wanted an answer straight away and my husband had no idea at this point, i told them i need to speak to my husband before i decide they said well can you make it quick as we need a decision, then whilst i was on the phone with him outside in floods of tears the nurse came to find me and said the doctors waiting for an answer can you come now please, so had to chose surgery as he thought it was best and they wasnt even gonna wait till my husband arrived but luckily he got there before i had the surgery and when he firest saw me he stated crying and told the nurse and doctor to get out the room he wanted us to be alone for 10 minutes and not to come back in until we was ready as i explained what they had said etc. we put an official complaint in and never have i heard anything from them. so the women who did the scan, the specialist were awful but his assistant was lovely and even she apologised to me for the way i had been treated she said it was disgusting

Awww Tinkerbell, I really feel for you. The treatment you received was totally disgusting!!! Chase up your complaint as they should not get away with this. I know that the Bolton and Wigan hospitals are bad too, lot of ladies complained about them and that is why I opted for the Manchester hospital. I live near Bolton, but no way I was going to go that hospital!
Make sure that you read some reviews about the hospitals in your area before you pick your next one. That is what we did and good job we did because the first question my midwife asked me was the name of the hospital I wanted to deliver my baby at. I thought they were meant to help and give you advice?
It is just apalling and I'm really worried about what will happen when I get my BFP again.
When did you test? If you tested yesterday, you should be able to do another test tomorrow .... your levels should doble every 2 days so you should get a stronger positive.

i tested this morning very faint but its there and i know its not an evap line because i can see the pink, im supposed to be at the doctors tomorrow because its been nearly a year since my ectopic and still no joy but they say when i had my left tube removed it will reduce my chances slightly but not much as my right tube was healthy but still no joy. but i might tell them i had a faint postive today and see wht they say. yeah i think next im going to go to york just was not happy the way i was treated. i dont blame you for been scared im terrified as worried about ectopic again and miscarriage before i had my daughter in 2011 i had a miscarriage i was 6 weeks then when i was pregnant with the ectopic i was 8 weeks. i had a cot death in my family aswell in 2006 that was very hard especially when i had my daughter 2011 i had every monitor going sensor mat bleeper for her nappy i was terrified.
fingers crossed for everyone because its hard when you want something so bad

Good luck TinkerBell88 and please keep us updated. When you go to your docs, ask for a put for a water sample and ask them to do a pregnancy test. I did that with my pregnancy in Feb, just to make sure my home tests were not lying . My line was very faint to start with but when the docs test came back, they said that it was a very strong positive. I've got my fingers and toes crossed for you!!!
Are you experiencing the pregnancy symptoms yet?

I can't believe the horrid treatment you have had in the hospitals. It's heart-breaking. In Leeds, my friend didn't have much better - she had a missed mc at 13 weeks (baby died 7 weeks), but her body started to deliver the baby, combined with advanced labour pains. Luckily, the A&E staff got her in straight away but husband had to drive her there and arrive in 10 minutes to get into the spare slot. The next day, after being in overnight, she was sent for a scan with all the other couples... except she was caked in blood all over her gown, legs, back because of the nature of her mc - they hadn't even bothered to help her change. She said the other couples were visibly shocked and one couple were in tears.
I understand health care professionals must see this all the time, but for the person it's happening to, it's utterly tragic. Why can't they therefore act with compassion and understanding? It's their job, after all.
Wishing you all the luck for your BFP! xx

OMG thats disgusting and very unfair they must of been heartbroken. they went into there jobs for a reason and your right just because they see it most days doesnt mean the person its happening to deserves to be treated poorly.
30/07/2013 at 12:51
just an update my doctors appointment today was about struggling to concieve since my ectopic and nearly been a year and they said they will do bloods to see if i am ovulating or not etc and they can refer me to see a gyno but she said they probably will refuse to treat me because i already have kids and because i smoke! dont mind the doctor herself was pregnant!!
so dont feel like im gonna get any help in any way so may just have to wait until my body decides to sort itself out.
30/07/2013 at 13:10
I'm sorry hear that yout GPs response was not very encouraging. They are pretty useless, aren't they? Did you mention the faint lines and possible pregnancy?
30/07/2013 at 13:51
yeah and she just said see what happens and if you get a more positive test to go back in few weeks, not very helpful at all

30/07/2013 at 14:00
OMG, not helpful at all. I hope that you are ok hun and I hope that the line on your test gets darker xxx
