Given up all hope in the future

reg - July 22


I am 36 and my Hubby and I are unable to concieve naturally due to problems with his sperm. I have no children. I had a blighted ovum miscarriage 6 years ago. The only way we can have children is to have fertility treatment called ICSI. We cannot get this funded on the NHS as my Hubby has a family from his first marriage. We paid for the ICSI ourselves. A whopping £6000.00. Amazingly the treatment worked and I took positive pregnancy tests. I just could not believe our luck. I was ecstatic right up until the 7 week scan which shiowed once again, my old friend the blighted ovum. I am absolutely heartbroken. It was our only chance to do this. We can't "try again" as it costs us £6000 every time we want to try again.
I can't believe this has happened to me again. Life just feels so cruel. I find it hard to put into words how I feel. I think I just feel completely empty and dead. Everything is pointless and I feel my future is just gone now. I am not meant to be childless. I get angry and so fed up just with waking up everyday. It's only bearable when I am asleep. I couldn't stand it being childless before the treatment began let alone now. It doesn't get easier. Not now there isn't any more hope left.

Hiya laurajane, im also 21 and our experiences seem so simular.this was my first missed misscarriage and i also had no bleeding or pain but just a blank scan photo on the day! ive decided not to go bck to wrk as altho i could put a brave face on,just seeing the other 2 ladies wld upset me and make me think that could have been me,and also the worry of it happening again.ive not seen any family since the misscarriage as i dont want any sympathy and jst want to be left alone for a bit! you say that you have no one to turn to but if you ever need a chat with someone who knows a bit of what your feelin then,i would love to help!take care xXx
