    I can't believe I'm saying this, but we've just lost our 4th pregnancy. I don't know who to talk to or where to turn.

    I'm so very sorry to hear that Dita ((hugs)).Would taking to the miscarriage association help.

    Yes, think it was last week's episode with that baby who never got visitors, even from their own mum...was very, very upsetting.

    What channel was this on? Sounds so sad, poor child.

    Dita: I am so sorry to hear your news, sorry we cannot do more to help, it must be heartbreaking. I hope some of the links people have given you can help you. x

    I believe it was ITV1-called baby hospital. The reason she said she couldn't visit was because she was like...12 miles or so away iirc. And had other children.
    Surely she could find time?
    And the baby needed a heart op and she was reluctant to go to the hospital then to sign the consent form and by the time she had come the baby had been taken to another hospital for the actual operation.

    It was all just...heart breaking.

    We went to the seaside yesterday. Jay was poorly though. I've had to take him to the doctors today to get antibiotics and an inhaler - he could barely breathe yesterday poor little love. If I'd known he was going to be so poorly we'd not have gone.
    Still, Lydia and Alex had fun anyway.

    Hello,
    I just found out a few days ago, that I am pregnant. Problem is I wanted to start Uni in September. I am from Germany and want to study in Aberdeen
    My due date would be at the end of February, but I am going to see my doctor this week, to get it all confirmed...
    Some people advised me, to delay the Uni for a year. But I really want to start Uni this year..
    How do you cope with pregnancy and Uni/ respectially with Uni and baby?
    I have experience with a newborn baby, as an AuPair, my lttle one there was two weeks old when I arrived there, and soon I had sole charge during daytime.
    So I am pretty aware what I will go through and also that I will cope.
    What would you advise me to do? Any recommodations?

    ...
    I think it's up to you really, uni is definitely do-able whilst being pregnant (I did it, twice ) I would perhaps think about intercalating? Which is where you can stop at the end of a term and then pick up at the same term the following year, so perhaps you could go up to Easter (depending on when it falls) because you should get some time off uni after having a baby (which was 4 weeks at my uni) but I guess that's something you'd find out) and that might take you up to Easter, other than that you could go up to Christmas and then pick up next Christmas? Something to think about anyway. It seems a shame not to start this Sept, it's just leaving you more work to do after the baby is born when it will be more difficult. I would definitely go as far as you can whilst pregnant.

    I wouldn't know how being an international student would effect anything so I guess the best thing you could do would be to ring up student support and see what your University suggests. Once you know what they offer, you can decide what to do from there.

    Best of luck sorting it out! We're here if you need us!



    Still thinking of you Dita xxxx

    PMP: Ah, Alex and Lydia look like they are having a ball! We went to Scarborough last year and it was lovely! The east coast is fantastic, I'm trying to persuade my Mum to get a caravan there!

    I believe if you are going to Aberdeen and due end of February it would be right after your first semester exams.

    As for coming or not coming, only you can answer that yourself, the university cannot advise you not to come on the basis of a pregnancy unless you are studying some kind of degree which requires any exposure to radiation or hazardous gases.

    The main problem you will find upon birth of your child is it would be quite difficult to find childcare for such a young baby at university.

    As for coping with uni, definitely possible on my last year of my degree there were 2 girls who were pregnant while on the course, 1 gave birth 3 days before her first exam and she still made it to all her exams..... those that generally do make it through would normally have either a partner or a parent to support them in the early months of the baby's life.... otherwise it would be quite difficult.

    Either way Alles Gute

    She is an EU national not international student, therefore she gets the same type of support as a home student, but if I remember correctly she won't be eligible for any of the loans and any means tested grants.

    If she was a genuine international student, then she be entitled to none other than free hospitalization through the NHS.

    I'm so sorry to hear this. Have you ever had your womb scanned?

    I've found this thorough article which may be of help:

    I'm so sorry to hear that. I can see you've been trying really hard. Don't let it get you down, you'll get there. I'm sure with the support of your nearest and dearest you will get through it.
    Take care :hugs:

    I've made an appointment to see a private fertility specialist so hopefully get some answers, but TBH we're not sure whether we can go through this anymore, it's destroyed my personality and I just wanna go back to the person I was before this nightmare began. So we're just going to enjoy our life together now as a couple. We may try again at a later date, but can't go through this all again.

    Don't rush into anything, just take it one step at the time.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I have it sky+, not sure I want to watch it now though, it sounds so upsetting! I hear enough sad stories at work
    I watched all 3 episodes, i have not cried so much in ages! Just such sad stories mixed with some happy endings. These people must have such strength. I did feel for the little boy that was never visited, you just think what hope is there for him.

    PMP: lovely pics, glad Lydia and Alex had fun. Is Jason feeling any better?

    I'm really sorry to butt into the thread due to what Dita is going through (I had a read through the last couple of pages, and I'm so sorry you are having such a traumatic time) but I was wondering if someone could give me advice about being pregnant whilst in full time education. Im due to start my final yr undergrad in september, have plans to do a PGCE after that, and I've just found out that I'm 5 weeks gone. Abortion and anything of the nature is out of the question. I am happy, but also a little scared and dumbfounded and not really sure of what to do next. I've bought some prenatal vits and im trying to make sure im eating enough atm. Does anyone have experience of what I'm in for, or know anybody who went through something similar? Please quote me if anyone wants to reply to me as this is quite a busy thread at times and I might not be able to keep up!

    I also havent see a doc yet (I found out yday)...when should I get that sorted? And when can I expect my first scan? Sorry for all the questions!


    Thanks for any help
