Emotions all over the place

Oh honey, no of course you're not being silly - it's a massive thing to deal with and the girls are right, we have all been there. My sister had 7 yes SEVEN children as easily as sneezing and couldn't understand why I couldn't just relax and let it happen. You do find coping mechanisms from somewhere (and coming onto FZ for a rant every now and again is a really good one! ) I hear what you're saying about the pressure on your relationship. Keep talking about your feelings, don't shut one another...

Sterilising bottles

I felt a bit strange when I stopped sterilising William's things too (just after he was one) but he was fine of course - I reasoned that what he picked up off the floor after grubbing it about and stuck in his mouth had to be WAY more risky than hand washed items! He never took to a cup or beaker at all and I bought half a dozen different types and styles. Instead he liked the ones with built in straws and had those until quite recently. You're doing really well hon xxx

Can anyone help please!!! I am new on here looking to do PGD in Genesis Cyprus in 2014

Hi honey and welcome to the forum, I am sorry that I can't help with you with information about Genesis in Cyprus, it's not a clinic I'm familiar with. I'm sure one of our lovely ladies will be along shortly with assistance though. The wonderful thing about this forum is its gentleness and supportive nature in seeking to understand the struggles and experiences of other women. A multitude of views are represented here on FZ and though we don't all agree with each other all of the time, in my exp...

Will this stage pass.........

Hey honey, Whereabouts in Dubai are you? I lived in Sharjah/Dubai for 8 years and my ex is still there. He has a massive mixed social group and they do all sorts of activities. Perhaps if you had a few friends to talk to and who could support you a bit you wouldn't feel so isolated? Let me know if I can help on that front? It sounds like you're doing a fab job under immense pressure to me. I've only got the one and he drives me nuts some days! xxx

Trouble getting meds from prescription from Greece

Hey sweetie Glad you're all sorted now and I am always happy when I come across another lucky lady who has found Penny. My Serum miracle is 3 years old on Tuesday. Good luck to you!

Trouble getting meds from prescription from Greece

Hi hon, It's actually very straightforward, please don't worry. Phone or mail Maria at Serum and ask for an email prescription which you can send to Rigcharm in London (Yasser Latif at Rigcharm pharmacy) yasserlatif4@hotmail.com. They deal with Serum all the time and will take payment over the phone and then post your meds first class and Maria will post the original px to them in the meantime. I haven't got lots of time right now, but if you have any other questions please PM me and I will get ...

Whooping Cough in toddlers *alert*

Thanks girls for your nice words. William is a bit lethargic today but has managed without his inhaler since he got up which is a really good sign!! Love to everyone

Serum Greece

Hi, I had baby William as a result of Penny's lovely care, although sadly 2 later cycles didn't work for me. I would still recommend her without hesitation. Probably the most comprehensive guide to Serum is the one written by Agate which covers the following topics: Index 1. Why do I think Serum is really good clinic to go to 2. Are there any bad points? 3. What is Serum like? 4. Egg or Sperm donation 4.1 Who are the egg donors? 4.2 Who are the sperm donors? 4.3 Can I use egg and sperm donation ...

Whooping Cough in toddlers *alert*

Hey Kitty and Moogs! Kitty - I know isn't that weird. The cons said that she sees 2:1 ratio of boys until about 7 or 8 years of age when it begins evening out and then by 9 or 10 it's almost all girls. I should have asked why that was, think I was a bit brain dead! Thanks for the nice wishes hon, he is quite bright today because he loves the play room in the hospital and has seen this cons since birth and she always makes a fuss of him! Moogle - thanks sweetie for the lovely wishes. I have learn...

Whooping Cough in toddlers *alert*

Hi girls, I know there's another post floating about to raise awareness of whooping cough, but I read it and moved on thinking William was immunised so it didn't affect me. Well it turns out that he's had or is in the latter stages of whooping cough and that immunisations don't protect children from variant strains. The cons told me this morning that boys are at twice the risk of girls of any respiratory problem because their airways are half the size until they're much older (7-10 years) Luckil...

Are you ready to be a parent? Take the test!

I don't very often laugh out loud, but this has had me in stitches. I can remember reading something similar BEFORE I had William and thinking it was funny but a wee bit exaggerated, now I am thinking "Yes that's on a GOOD day!!!!"

5 weeks 6 days empty sac

Hi honey, I had a scan with William at 5 weeks 6 and there was no fetal pole just an empty sac and the consultant worried me to death saying it was probably not a viable pregnancy. Well that 'non viable pregnancy' is currently sitting by me aged 2 and a bit, full of it! So keep believing until you have solid evidence to the contrary and very good luck.

I am just popping in to give the lovely MB a quick snog (quite platonic, nothing dodgy ) and hug all you other ladies to bits.

Funny things they say

Oh I love reading these! I often say to William "How about a kiss?" and he says back "How about a cake?" Cheeky monkey!

Considering a holiday abroad with a 8 month old

Hiya, I would absolutely agree with the last sentence that hopeful wrote. Do it while she's little, it's easy in comparison to a spirited and defiant toddler! We have been abroad with William four times now (he's just over 2) and it gets harder and harder each time!!! We took sterilising tablets to save space and borrowed a big bowl from the hotel which we kept all his teats, bottles, dummies and whatnots in - always clean, always handy. We used disposable bottles for travelling and just chucked...

any help etc needed, head so mixed up.

Penny, I am just popping back to say sorry really because after re-reading my first post it sounds a bit harsh and I didn't mean it to come across that way. I am just cross on your behalf that your clinic seem to be rushing you and that the counselling isn't clearing a way forward really. Anyway honey I wish you lots of luck and hope that you manage to feel positive about your choices soon. Lots of love, Scarlett

any help etc needed, head so mixed up.

Hi honey, I would say that these decisions are far too important to be rushed into because of external deadlines. Donor IVF is a complex and many-faceted experience and in my opinion takes on further layers of complexity when involving a family or known donor. I found it a minefield of questions and what ifs and all kinds of anxieties I needed to work through. I'm sorry if this isn't the positive response you are seeking, but I think you MUST be certain that this is absolutely the right thing to...

I'm so tired :(

Hello! I'm sorry to hear about your gallstones hon it's all hitting you at once at the minute isn't it? I feel your hubby pain I really do. Although my DH is very good generally, he's rubbish at cooking, he also will use every pan, surface, knife, fork and spoon in the kitchen to make a boiled egg. We've got our spuds all sprouting and ready in a bowl in the kitchen but haven't planted them out yet either. Let me know when you plan to do yours and I shall join you in a plantathon! If the chicken...
