confusion ????

If your husband/partner has a good sperm count, then intercourse (BD/BabyDancing) today and/or tomorrow would probably be acceptable. Sperm can last several days inside of you but an egg, once released, has a maximum of 24 hours so don't delay the BD. As for the chances of rupture/egg release - I am afraid that I do not know. In my own experience (I had IUI) I was told that release would occur about 36 hours after the shot and I would inject at around 9 or 10 pm and go in for insemination 36 hou...

TMI warning - Imodium in pregnancy

Hi, Pip Unfortunately, the safest course would be to ride it out. According to the NHS website it simply says that if you are pregnant you should not use Loperamide (imodium) Get as much rest as you can and make sure you take PLENTY of fluids. Hope you feel better soon

Breastfeeding pain - HELP

Hi, Hun As long as the latch is a problem and you are getting new trauma to your nipples the pain can be surprisingly severe - I know that I certainly never expected feeding to be so painful and I cried every time he did because the pain started as part of the "maternal reaction" to a baby in need. The problem is that your nipples are simply not getting a chance to heal. The fact that some feeds are comfortable means that your little one is latching properly at times so it can be done. Once the ...

Poo!

Hi, Hun If you are still breast feeding then please do not worry. Breast milk is really well digested leaving little to go as waste so babies can easily skip up to 8 days between poos. In fact I remember reading that breastfed babies can also vary widely ranging from 8 times per day to once in 8 days... I reckon that as long as you little one is not uncomfortable, don't worry about it.

9dp5dt is Pregnyl (5000) out of my system?

Hi, Podie Most of the time, Pregnyl is out of your system at 7-9 days after the shot was given. If you only had the one then chances are that it is not a false positive. Also, spotting could be as a result of implantation. My own experience of BFP - I had spotting, no sore boobs or any other symptoms. I'd had severe abdominal pain on day 10 post ovulation and I was convinced that the 2 lines on the stick were a cruel joke so I know how you feel. When I said to my doctor that I did not "feel preg...

Cervical Hostility?

Hi, Hun IUI would be the first option if everything else was clear as the sperm is inserted into the uterus and not exposed to cervical mucous at all.

Cervical Hostility?

Hi, Hun Welcome to FZ and sorry to read of the difficulty you have been experiencing. Congratulations, also, on your daughter... I have not had the tests myself but I have heard that it is a post-coital test - in other words you and your DH would BD and you then need to be at the doctor's within 30minutes to half hour and they would take a swab to check the status of the sperm... Where cervical hostility is confirmed, the simplest form of treatment would be Artificial insemination with IVF and/o...

6th week scan - internal or external?

Hi, Coquina and congrats on your BFP I had internal scans at 6, 8 and 11 weeks. My first external was at 16 weeks. Most clinics will do the early scans internally but it is not impossible for them to do early scans externally and, with a good technician and a full bladder it can be as accurate as an internal...

PCOS / droopy boobies

Hey, Flic - there is plenty about your build that I am jealous of... I haven't fitted into a size 30 anything since I entered my teens - in fact, my first bra (that I seldom wore) at age 14 was a 32A. If there is one problem associated with PCOS that I definitely have then it is the weight issue. And the guys don't care if they are empty. If boobies are large they are smiling... lol

PCOS / droopy boobies

Hmmm... Have to say that I am not in this boat. At least I don't think so. When I was younger and slimmer I considered myself to have pretty nice boobs at about a 34-36 C/D and I could go braless before I gained a LOT of weight. It was only as I grew sideways and ended up a 38-40DD/E in my early to mid 30's that I thought my bust was a touch droopy but even then I could get away with light to medium control bras. I had absolutely no problems with milk production as evidenced by C's weight gain a...

Newbie, where do I start?

Hi and welcome, Muppet I note that you indicate having a needle phobia. IUI does not guarantee that no needles will be involved. I was 35 when I got my BFP on my 7th IUI - all self-funded - and had to inject fo 5 of the 7. Many clinics will go this route in order to try to control when you will ovulate as the last thing you would want is to ovulate over a weekend or holiday when the clinic may be closed. It is true that IVF is more intense but I personally found IUI to be very stressful. I don't...

Any Pprom ladies out there?

Hi, Macksie A few years ago one of our members who was carrying twins had PROM at 24ish weeks. I'll have to see if I can find her diary. If memory serves, she managed to keep them both onboard for 6 or 7 weeks more and they were a bit early but both came home well...

not feeling baby move at almost 17weeks?

Hi, Hun It is not uncommon to not feel baby move until 19-20 weeks, even when it is not your first. Also, if the placenta is anterior (i.e. at the front) it can also be more difficult to feel baby move. A friend of mine never felt her baby move even up to the day she delivered at 39 weeks although I think that she is an exceptional case...

NEW PARENT CHAT THREAD

Hi, Lynsey - just noted the issue you have experienced using wipes. C (ok so he is 7 now but it feels like yesterday) also reacted when I used wipes on his bottom. No matter which brand, hypoallergenic or not, he would develop a nasty nappy rash whenever I used them (blisters and raw, peeling skin - he would scream with the pain when his nappy got wet and when I cleaned him) and he also got a rash when I used them on his hands or face. In the end I just started travelling with a packet of dry co...

mia angel spell caster

Hi there Some years ago there were a few members who used her fertility spells. I can't remember offhand who they were but at least one of them got a positive result. But then it could also be argued that statistically chances were good that at least one of them would have success. sorry I can't be of more help...

Cefalexin at nearly 5 weeks pregnant. Anyone taken it for a UTI so early on?

Hi, aly Congrats on your pregnancy. I, too, have no knowledge related to the medication. My fear however is not related to the medication but to the consequences of not treating any UTI's It is a well known/established fact that a UTI or any pelvic/pelvic organ infection, left untreated, could cause iritability of the uterus and result in pregnancy loss or preterm labour. As a result, not taking treatment for a UTI could also endanger your pregnancy. In the end you and your doctor need to weigh ...

21 Day progesterone

Hi, Zeb I'm one of those who did not ovulate at all because of PCOS. My levels were something like 4 or 5 back in 2005 before I started treatment and scans confirmed that I was not ovulating. Anyhow, with a fair bit of assistance I did ovulate in the end (used IVF doses of stimulating drugs in order to have IUI before I had ovarian drilling done and then ovulated with much less medication but still needed some stimms) and as you can see got my happy result. When I did IUI before the surgery I ha...

21 Day progesterone

Based on your result and what my doc told me back in the day, yes you probably do ovulate but may need some progesterone support. If you end up needing treatment along the lines of IVF or ICSI (or even IUI at some clinics) you will probably get progesterone supplements anyhow. Despite the above, unfortunately this is not an exact science so there is still chance that that on another cycle you may have gotten a higher result or a lower one. The best advice is to wait and see what happens when you...
