I conceived my first child 8 years ago with ease and despite hyperemisis [severe morning sickness] every thing went perfectly. So when we decided to try again, I thought it would be just as easy.

Again I fell pregnant first try, however got to the 3-month scan and sadly the baby had Turner’s Syndrome and it was a hydrops [hydrops fetalis] pregnancy, which meant we had to terminate at 14 weeks. This was beyond a traumatic and shattered our lives.

As soon as my cycle returned again I fell immediately pregnant, however miscarried again at 7 weeks. Again after my cycles returned, I fell pregnant immediately and again tragedy struck and I lost another pregnancy at 9 weeks.

The pressure resulted in my husband and I separating for 6 months, however I fell pregnant again. This time things worked out and I had another beautiful daughter. Tragedy almost took her as she was found to have Strep B with suspected meningitis and we spent much time in special care. She is now 3 and more than well.

In January this year we tried again and as ever I fell pregnant immediately again, sadly at 3 months the pregnancy had not grown. Then again, as before, we tried again as soon as my cycle came and I fell immediately. I was having early scans and we saw a heart beat at 6 & 7 weeks, but sadly no heart beat at the 8th. As I was now 37, I decided my egg quality must be an issue and results had shown Trisomy 22 for all tested pregnancies.

I researched and found this website and went with everything and my partner too. I felt like I must be rattling with everything I was taking, but felt good that I was doing something and it gave me purpose. I most enjoyed the castor oil packs. They were beyond relaxing and helped me so much.

Although I had wanted to wait the full 3 months, given my high fertility, in fact I now believe I have something called hyper fertility, despite really being careful I fell pregnant after two months. Here I am and I have had scans every week since week 5 and I have just left my 9 week scan with a heart beat and now back into mainstream scanning as all is going so well.

I feel confident about the rest of this pregnancy now and truly feel the success was aided by following this site’s comprehensive fertility advise.

I would like to say a huge thank you, even for the purpose this gave me when going through endless loss. I wish everyone reading this much luck, as I have been in your position trawling through sites and testimonies.

Yours, Maxine
