Advice re increasing our chances of success

You need to have a great clinic and talk to them. yes there are some dietry adjustments but it's getting things right medically that will work the best. Some people also use alternative therapies to help. There is also some research now that suggests that endometrial scratching (mine cost £150) the month before TX can greatly increase the chances of implantation but again your clinic can advise on this. Also, get tested for EVERYTHING. Some tests are very expensive but we felt it was worth it to...

Second ivf cycle

Hi there and welcome! Sorry you had a loss xxx Sadly, some frosties don't make it but the embryologist told me if they don't survive the defrost then they likely wouldn't have survived inside either, so maybe a little consolation there? When are you having your FET??

No baseline scan

My clinic told me that baseline scans were vital if you downregulated to ensure the lining was thin and there was no follicular activity...but it appears each clinic is different!!

Recurrent Miscarriage definition

It's really hard isn't it? I would say technically you don't fall into the recurrent miscarriage section, but I believe that you are a recurrent miscarrier. I am not sure where you are in the country but I am being treated at New Life clinic in Epsom and they are experts in recurrent miscarriage and repeated IVF failures - it may be worth an appointment to chat things through with them?? Whatever happens, I wish you the very best of luck in your journey xx

carpal tunnel

Hi Net, Ask away, I have my miracle now so happy to talk about my losses. No, had my surgery after my pregnancy as the CT just got worse and worse and worse to the point I couldn't hold anything and would drop cups etc etc. I'm not sure about the surgery whilst pregnant. Although it is done under local, there is a hell of a lot of swelling - my fingers were as big as sausages - literally! PLus your dr may take the stance of "it will go away when baby is born". Let us know how you get on xx

carpal tunnel

Do you sleep propped up? That really helped me. I got it right at the start of my 1st (failed) pregnancy, ended up having to have the operation. Then it came back in my las pregnancy, in the second tri and it went virtually as soon as she was born. I feel your pain, it is horrible - what does your doctor say?

Advice needed on baby not meeting development milestones, very worried mummy xx

Hi hun, Didn't want to read and run. Big hugs to you - this is a very worrying time and of course you have every right to be worried. i have no experience of your situation (but lots of experience with CP kids) and what i suggest you do is make a big fat list of questions to ask as if you are anything like me, i usually forget to ask important questions when I see the docs. Let us know how you get on xxx

Blocked Milk Ducts

I had that - got a little lump on my nippels from it. I squeezed and squeezed it just like a zit and loads of pussy-hardened milk came out, then it was all ok again. Do you have a any sign of this? You can place hot hot hot flannels on your breasts then keep massaging them, and MAKE SURE YOU FEED FROM IT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! This will help keep the mastitus at bay. Hope it resolves soon.

2WW Question

As RG said, it's a very individual one this. ALL the latest research says not to take time off as it will have no effect BUT I didn't - I was very lucky to have an immensly understanding boss and she gave me the time off, fully paid. My job was also stressful and I'll never know if it would have made any difference or not, but I have my baby so you can draw your own conclusions. What I will say is that if you don't take the time off and your treatment doesn't work, you will forever blame your jo...
