Aptimil comfort but too thick for teat? What teat is a good one?

Hello, am starting son (4 weeks) on aptimil comfort but am finding it too thick to be sucked through a size 2 aven teat. Would it be ok to use a size 3 at 4weeks old or would you recomment another bottle such as dr brown? ThanksXXX.

Baby names?

Ah thanks keepthefaith, we hadn't heard of it either when we came across it in one (of many) of our baby name books! I hope they manage to rectify the name! Ya right no-one wants their child to be upset because of a name, it is just so important to find the 'right' one! Thanks for your well wishes XXX.

Baby names?

Girl's names are so pretty and i had a name that i loved and didn't even feel the need to ask others of their opinion of it, as where we are having a boy which i have really struggled with to find a name i love, am glad we found out otherwise it would have been a nightmare trying to think of one afterwards as was convinced we were having a girl lol! I like the name Tai but i agree it might be too alike to your nephews. You would think that with all the name books it would be easy to choose would...

Baby names?

Hi lisa, jayden's a lovely name, i like both spellings. We still haven't 100% decided as yet, if we were having a girl it was fine as had a definate name planned but am struggling with our baby boy's name! I really would like a name that means so much to me and my husband ( name of a place we both love but worry what others will say) i dont think im confident enough to do it so will probably go with our next name either 'Tolomey' or 'Kyloe'? We only have a few weeks left to decide now! XXX.

HELP please understanding chicago results level 2

Hi caitriona, am so very sorry for your mc's. Your b cells igG is 98.9 and anything over 50 is really good and as you have a weak positive lad that's good too. The th1 and th2 results are suppose to be ok if uner 30. Am not sure about the other results but you could pop on to fertility friends and look under the investigations and immune forum/section where there is a lady called 'Agate' who is very good at interpreting level 2 results. Best wishes melXXX.

Intralipids coming up to 12 weeks pregnant?

Hi Dee, all the clinics seem to have different opinions on this, for example girls at Mr Gorgy's clinic in Wimpole street are advised to stay on intralipids right up till 31 weeks as research has shown that nk cells can increase again around the 28week stage ( this is what the info says on fertilityfriends, immunology forum) but George at CARE suggests up to 16weeks. If im lucky enough to get to the 12 week stage i will be asking for intralipid prescriptions on going as i think i would worry too...

Pets a comfort during treatment

Hi Daisy, i agree with Tinks, god knows what i would have done without my dear dog (whose12 and half now, grey and a bit grumpy lol) through all my losses, he's such a comfort to cuddle and kiss and i believe he truly listens to me when im chatting about my sadness to him at the time of such devastating circumstances. Now i sound mad dont i but im not (honestly) lol!!! melXXX.

Hysteroscopy

Hello and welcome sofia, although im not a Bart's patient i just thought i'd pop on to say that i had a hysteroscopy last year and it was fine, i had one done a wake with a endometrium biopsie taken (a bit sore but nothing terrible), then had to had another one a month later with a general anaesthetic as needed polyp removed. All was healed within a month after polyp removed with no problems. Best wishes melXXX.

My immunology appointments

Hello and welcome Bravegirl and Kim, I have had the 'chicago tests' done at CARE Nottingham under Mr George Ndukwe, he is lovely and really cares about his patients. The ARGC in London also does them as does Mr Gorgy at the fertility Academy in London. The chicago tests like Bunty says are in-depth immunological tests that the nhs do not do. The NHS will only treat you with streoids etc where as others might need drugs such as intralipids, humira, ivig etc to help calm down their bodies to help ...

Thanks Jen Paul for your replies, the bleeding has stopped, perhaps some of the poly i had removed above the cervix is still there, will check it out with gyne at next appointment. The pain when i ovulated was very uncomfortable and the whole womb area was tender! I am going to start the heparin (framin) this evening and just hope i dont start to bleed. I am now up to 35mg of steroids and have never been on this high doseage before so perhaps this could be havng an effect on things. Will be able...

Bleeding at ovulation (new blood), can i stii conceive?

Thank you for your reply and reassurance, it is greatly appreciated. I see to be bleeding more now than i was before i had the hysteroscopy (am having to wear a pad), dont think i will put a progesterone in this evening as it says not to use them if bleeding mid cycle! Also i was going to start the fragmin but think i should wait until bleeding stops. Wow, where has the time gone, you've only got just over a month to go now, bet ya very excited!!!! Thanks again melXXX.
