Getting out and about

Thanks for the reply kasey! Since we live in the middle of the town it's quite likely the DW will be trying to get downstairs with a buggy as well...maybe always leaving it in the boot of the car instead is a better option!

Getting out and about

Hi all, Just wondered if anyone with twins lives in a flat? We are on the second (also the top!) floor, and the logistics of my DW getting out and about if I am not around seem impossible! Luckily both our mum's are retired and live close by, but obviously we can't rely on them 100% of the time. Anyone else have twins and live up a couple of flights of stairs? Thanks in advance!

Blimey...twins!

Well, went for our scan this morning to see two little heartbeats! 11mm and 12mm with HR of 150bpm DW was petrified that ther would be nothing! Haven't been able to stop smiling about it all day! Good luck to all of you in the 2WW and those trying again - Christmas miracles do happen!

FIRST TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Morning all, Well, DW is 5wk+5 and on Cyclogest, so she's bloated, tired and - from this morning - feeling sick. Everytime she goes 'ooh' or 'ahh' when she has a twinge/pain I immediately ask what's wrong; I think it might be driving her mad! Although she's not sleeping well, at least she isn't having the nightmares I am - about 3 so far that she's miscarried, or the baby was stillborn, or etc etc! Truly disturbing! webby

Ectopic Pregnancy

Hi Tessalina, My wife had an ectopic back in 2006 and had to have a tube removed after being in agonizing pain. I was pushing for methotrexate as it was early on, but they insisted on waiting and doing blood tests every two days and scans every week. We eventually went to A&E and they rushed her in and and because of the size of the foetus they had to remove the tube. Fortunately the other tube was clear, but the operation was botched and my DW spent nearly a year on follow up appointments tryin...

is IVF really our only hope??

Hi Betty, Sorry there hasn't been much of a reply on this. I'm not a doctor, but with a low concentration, decreased motility and an abscence of normal forms, the clinic would recommend ICSI, as this allows them to select a single sperm and inject it directly in to the egg to achieve fertilization. They wouldn't recommend this unless it was necessary I'm sure. Maybe acupuncture will help, but I have yet to read a conclusive double-blind study. webby

RE: Can someone help me to interpret my results?

Quoted Originally posted by wanting1 Volume: 3.26ml pH: 8.1 Liquefaction: Complete in 2hrs Sperm Concentration: 11million/ml Motility + progression: Rapid 69% at 2hrs - progression 4 Abnormal Forms: 86% I'm no expert, but volume and pH are fine. Concentration is low (less than 20mil/ml) Liquefaction should be 30mins or less I think the motility is good Abnormal forms - depends on the counting method used, but if it's the strict count then you have 14% normal forms, which is below the 15% thresh...

Quick question - bay leaf in soup?

It should be fine - you can get dried bay leaf to put in soups, although you'd usually use a lot less than a whole leaf!
