So i had a friend text me yesterday to ask me about egg freezing (how would i know). As a bit of an aside she asked me how i was going with everything.

I was a bit piqued last night so i told the truth. Honestly not great. Three miscarriages in a row and im not coping very well. Going back to see specialist and getting a second opinion. How are you?

No answer... lol dont raise the topic unless you want the unvarnished truth.

I will freely admit, i was a bit annoyed to be getting bomvarded with qs about egg freezing so i did take a little perverse pleasure in it.

That’s really poor form by your friend. People think they’re being nice just by asking. But they need to care about the response. I’m sorry :(

I am so sorry. Infertility and pregnancy loss are so hard and most people just don't understand what you are going through.

I had 3 miscarriages in a row too and there were many people in my life who couldn't deal with it (family included). I did find people I could I talk to, which really helped (including some lovely ladies on here, a FB IVF support group and a couple of close friends who "got it").  I also started seeing a psychologist who specialized in miscarriage, infertility and IVF.

It really sucks your friend wasn't able to be more supportive. I understand why you were hurt.

I hope you get some answers and a plan from your FS soon.

Thanks guys.

Saw the dertility specialist today and we have decided to get my chromosomes checked and to check me for blood clotting disorders before going any further. If that doesnt work then we will look at doing a hysterscopy.

Was going to go today for the bloods but saw flames from a grassfire on the way home. Im not in the evacuation zone but hought about it. Packed my bag, my cat and some food and went to mums place. Mostly to get out of the smoke before the other roads get closed. My place is 2 blocks from the evacuation centre so if it goes the whole place is going.

So will leave the tests a few days till its under control.
