I'm kind of back.

I am back after the big move and various other even more stressful occurrences.
So, the move went quite well. Sd deserved a big fat medal after single-handedly managing the whole thing while I lurched between going to work and lying on the couch/bed. Three days before we moved I started to bleed.Not really what we were looking for in the 10th week of pregnancy! So the days proceeding the move involved ultrasounds, me crying, and lots of lying down as I said. Thankfully, it stopped after a week and as I sit here I am still surrounded by boxes and other random bits and pieces. That's because now I am contending with the fallout after the NT scan.
We had that yesterday and the results weren't great. I have had one before, last December, and the results were as bad as they could be.
Just so you know, this is my fourth pregnancy. The first two I miscarried at about 7 weeks. The one in December was a Downs baby which I also miscarried a day or so after the CVS. We would have terminated the pregnancy if that had not happened.
This pregnancy is an IVF/PGD pregnancy and the embryo has been screened for Downs and 6 other common chromosomal abnormalities before it was transfered.
The doctor who did the CVS yesterday kept telling us how we shouldn't worry and that it will all be ok but I have heard that SO many times before and it wasn't. I think the best way to describe the way I am feeling this morning is numb.
I will get the results either today or tomorrow. Depending on what they are, I might not post for a while but eventually I'll be back.

Hope you are having a much nicer week than me!

I have missed your blogging.
I am so sorry you are having such a rough time and I really hope that the doctor is right and that you do not have anything to worry about. I hope things get better! Thinking of you xx
