Thank you, good luck but I'm going to have to leave

I just want to say how enormously grateful I am to the wonderful ladies on this forum who have helped me over the last 11 months; through my D&C in January and the long frustrating months of ttc, the jubilation of that coveted bfp and the encouragement and support through my worries.

My 12 week scan today revealed that the baby stopped growing at 6 weeks and 5 days - the day after my first scan which showed a heartbeat - how cruel is that.  I have opted to go down the medication route this time, I do not want to put my body through a 2nd D&C in less than a year.  

I will not be ttc again now.  I cannot go through this again and I am so fortunate that I have 4 beautiful children and I shall cherish them even more than I did already.  So this is goodbye and I want to wish you all so much luck in your ttc, pregnancies and births.

Helen xx

I wish you the best.  I am sorry things did not happen like you had hoped.  God wanted you to have 4 healthy beautiful children.  Cherish them and enjoy every moment.  Who knows....once you quit trying stranger things have happened.  Best of luck to you and your family.

Oh Helen, i'm so sorry that this has happened again. I haven't been around much since i'm not TTC but I so wish I was able to get an email address to stay in touch with you. Please stay strong and cherish your children, I was blessed with 3 children that I thank god for everyday. Maybe someday soon you'll drop in with a hello. Gonna miss you. xoxo
