Hello Everyone

Hi Gilly! I remember you! I can't believe Joe is starting school in a few weeks - doesn't it just fly by? My dd1 was born at the end of May so she was the same age as Joe will be when he starts - they seem so small but so grown up too when you see them in their uniform. I blubbed, proper cried after dropping her off - luckily she was much more upbeat about the whole thing! Hope he has a great time! x

Weaning 7month prem twins ... Aaargghh!!

Evening! Not twins but DD1 born at 32 weeks, rotten reflux and a milk allergy. I weaned her ridiculously early, on her consultant's advice which meant she was about 11 weeks corrected I think. We didn't do too badly as she was quite keen to eat (think it was a relief after all the horrible milk substitute stuff!). Re. reflux - you need someone to help you - gaviscon wasn't enough for DD1 and it isn't for other kids with moderate - severe reflux. DD1 ended up on ranitidine and domperidone. Tried ...

No blood test?

Many congrats on your BFP! My clinic didn't do bloods after my BFP - just had to wait another 2 1/2 weeks for a scan - it was a veeeeeery long wait! x

Grateful for 7 but was hoping for more.....

7 is fab, please don't be too downhearted. I only got 2 and was gutted. However, both fertilised and were put back and the result is my very lovely 2 1/2 year old daughter. It only takes 1!!! x

Early onset pre-eclampsia diagnosis - any advice?

Hi Hun Sorry I can't write loads but I'm at work. However, I've had pre-eclampsia twice, the first time earlier than the 2nd and my DD1 was born at 32 weeks. First thing is that if they were super worried you wouldn't have been allowed to go home, no matter how busy they were. I was tranferred 100 miles away - they would have found you a bed somewhere if they weren't sure it was safe for you and your baby to go home. Secondly, and really importantly, you are now known to them, and you're in the ...

When do you pack your hospital bag?

I'm with Scarlett on the sooner rather than later theory. I went into hospital at 30 weeks with NOTHING, not even a toothbrush and had to rely on DH to bring me everything we needed. And then had to rely on my Mum to bring us the stuff I'd actually asked for rather than the stuff DH had managed to bring in!!!! We hadn't bought any of the big stuff (cot/travel system etc) either at that point so a few weeks later had to do a mad shopping spree before she came home so it was all a bit hectic. Neve...

Fighting non stop about everything

Hi Ros Sorry you're having a stressful time. I think it's not just a problem with twins but for any family where there's more than one child and a parent or parents who are trying to divide their attention. My girls get on really well generally but I know when I walk through the door from work that they will both launch themselves at me, both wanting a cuddle and both talking loudly trying to tell me about their day, and getting louder and more boisterous to get my attention. And there are other...

We've learnt to roll!

Evening. I think the general thought is that if they can do it by themselves, leave them. You could always check with your HV if you're worried? Won't be long before he's rolling about all the over the place and before you blink, he'll be crawling! x

Are ONLY children lonely children?..

Evening. I'm sorry you're feeling so low at the moment. I totally understand where you're coming from. We conceived our DD1 quickly, with no problems and then couldn't do it again and were diagnosed with secondary infertility. I was DESPERATE to give my DD1 a sibling and it became an all encompassing thought for me. And like Morvc, the journey to have another child was more for her than it was for us. I had this big worry that she was enough for us but were we enough for her. And I felt like the...

33 weeks gestation and ? low levels of fluid on scan....

Hi Suki Congrats on getting to 33 weeks - not long now til you're a Mum of 2! I think that if the Consultant was overly worried, you'd be having a scan sooner than 2 weeks, so try and keep that in your mind (hard I know!). BUT, why don't you ring your midwife, and ask her the questions that must be racing through your mind - if she doesn't know the answer, at least she will be able to go and speak to a consultant etc. Its better to phone and ask than sit worrying for the next 2 weeks. Wishing yo...

The Lister Clinic - Chelsea, London

Hi Zahra - sorry about your BFN. I think Verve means me - I had high fsh (17.2) and got a BFP on my first cycle at the Lister! I can't really remember how much the cycle cost - I think it was 5-6K - we didn't have ICSI or go to blast or have any frosties to freeze. But I was on shed loads of drugs which bumped up the price. Wishing you lots of luck. x
