Donating umbilical cord

Hi Newlywed, yes, I'd love to donate but we're in the wrong area and they can't transport the cords. I've contacted the cord bank and they also say they can't use cords from mulitple births, so I wouldn't have been able to on that count either. Such a good scheme though; it will be good when they can roll it out nationally. Cathy xxx

Donating umbilical cord

Hi Everyone, I've just read this story on the BBC news website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-12653036 (not endorsed by FZ). It's about donating umbilical cords after your birth that can help save lives. Unfortunately, at present it seems that only a few hospitals in the UK participate in the NHS Cord Blood Bank (see http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/cordblood/index.asp - site not endorsed by FZ. These hospitals are: Barnet General Hospital, Northwick Park Hospital, Luton & Dunstable Hospital and Watfor...

panic attacks over upcoming injections, what if......

Hi Mrs K, sorry you're feeling anxious. The needles are very, very fine and you really won't feel a thing. But if it's making you really anxious, why don't you tell your clinic? Some clinics will administer the injections for you if you really can't face doing it yourself or letting your DH do it for you. It would be a bit of a nuisance because it would mean lots of trips to your clinic. Alternatively, I wonder if your GP Practice could do it? I'm sure you'll be fine. Cathy xxx

How long should we ttc naturally before a second try at ivf?

Hi Rockchick, congratulations on your baby! I'd agree with the others. It's a very personal decision, but if I was in your shoes my age would probably be the deciding factor, plus any fertility issues that could be related to age. (I'm over 40 so this has been an issue for me in ttc.) If you've got lots of time to play with, so to speak, perhaps you could give trying naturally a go for a while? There is medical research that shows that IVF can kick-start your system to conceive naturally, and I ...

anyone had first time ivf sucess after trying for 10yrs plus ?

Hi Mrs K, I'm can't directly answer your question, though from using the forum for a couple of years now I have seen some amazing stories - people trying for many years with no success and then hey presto! I also know of quite a few people who tried without success with clomid but then went on to get their BFPs with IVF. So I'd say it's very possible! Wishing you lots of luck! Cathy xxx

Large Twins and Gestational Diabetes

Hi Nicci, I hope your test on Friday went OK. I don't know much about GD, I'm afraid, but have had various worries about our twins re. growth charts, amniotic fluid levels etc. I know it can be quite an anxious time. Your hospital will keep a good eye on your babies. Cathy xxx

blood during ovulation

Hi Stepice, it takes about 3 months for sperm to be produced, so that means you would see the effects of reducing your alcohol intake and taking the supplements after 3 months. So you're nearly there! Good luck! Cathy

Severe itching and antihistamines

Thanks, Bouncytigger. I wonder if I should try to stop the piriton? The itching IS a lot better now. I take two a day and have been told I could take 3 if I wanted. Congrats on your twins! Great news I hope that PP's itching eases soon. Horrible to have it twice! Cathy xxx

Severe itching and antihistamines

Hi Polly Pocket, that's great news that your baby is head down ! My little girl has flipped and is now breech, but this won't affect me because of having a c-section. I've been in touch with the hospital who say they're not really concerned about the amniotic fluid, but from what I've read on line it's the little girl who has too much fluid, not the boy with too little. She would be classed as mild polyhydramnios. I'm glad I'm seeing the specialist next week anyway to discuss this properly. In i...
