Howto find a good clinic for a IVF with a donor egg?

Hello. I have experience of donor eggs. I had treatment at IVI in Valencia and it was an excellent clinic. I was very lucky and ended up with twins who are now nearly 6yrs old. I know a few others here have had donor egg treatment in Spain in other clinics, most seem pleased with the clinics they used. Let me know if I can help further xxx

Twin dilemma!!! Please help!!

I can definitely relate, my two are 3.5yrs and over the last year I have seriously considered locking them in a cupboard because they were driving me to distraction. When however, I thought about it rationally I realised that they were just pushing the boundaries plus fighting for attention. Therefore as you also have a baby, I am sure your twins are fighting even harder for your attention and what better way to get it than being naughty! I would however say that I think we turned the corner abo...

IVF Scotland/Spire

I went to GCRM in Glasgow, but think they have a satellite clinic in Edinburgh. I could not fault them at all. I had DET but that was due to me being over 40. Happy to give you more info. Jan

Anxiety over weeing in potty

I bought one of the toilet seats with steps up to it, both my two love it because they feel grown-up going to the toilet by themselves (with me there to help). Not sure if that will help, but thought it was worth mentioning. I also bought them both a book about potty training and kept it close to the potties, they loved looking at pictures of bigger boys and girls using the potty or toilet. Good luck. We are tring to get Oscar potty trained at the moment too, slowly getting there! x

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

Things seem to have been a lot better over the last week or so. I have stopped 'negotiating', I am patient and ask nicely, but if no success I just tell them that X or Y is happening whether they like it or not. Plus I have brought in the concept of options, such as saying to Oscar he can wear one of two shirts in the morning and he has to choose, better than just forcing one option on him. Plus we have started reward charts and both are desperate to add stickers for good behaviour. So all the a...

Potty Trained - but now wetting the bed/pants

Emilia is now consistently wetting the bed at nights. Sometimes dry if I manage to get her up and she does a wee when I put her on the toilet, but she is asleep, so it is not really giving her good habits, just saving washing! Is it wrong to go back to nappies at night? It just feels like such a backwards step.

Scarlett, thanks for checking in on me and Louise, it is so lovely to have a hello from you. I have turned over a new leaf and been rather assertive for the last couple of days, with lots of support from my lovely friend who is staying with me. I have been using the 1,2,3 counting for the naughty step and seeing a difference there. Plus using in more and really following through on my threats. Also when with toot is demanding to be 'up' I keep walking. Lots of tears and tantrums, but again the f...

Ladies, or rather FZ friends, I cannot thank you enough for the advice. It all makes perfect sense and I put a lot into immediate effect. I love the counting for the naughty step and lots of praise for good behaviour, etc. I will also give them lots of warning about our plans etc. Basically I will take a bit more control of the situation. Deep breaths and time to move on. Scarlett, we are in the Meadows and I work in Jumeirah Lake Towers, so pretty central. I do have some friends here, but due t...

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

Dear All, I need your help and support again because I am feeling like the worst mother in the world at the moment and just not sure if I am on the road to a breakdown........... Both Oscar and Emilia are really pushing their boundaries at the moment, they are 2.5 yrs old. I get reports back from nursery most days that they have either been hitting other children or pushing them, then running to each other for protection. They do not gang up on other children, in fact they push and hit each othe...

Potty Trained - but now wetting the bed/pants

Thanks ladies - she had a dry night last night and this morning she told me that she would not let the ladies at nursery put nappies on her, so she is determined to be dry today - she is a real madam and very opinionated (not sure where she gets that from!!). Greeny - how did you get on with potty training your wee man? I just don't know where to start with Oscar because he just seems so happy to tell me when he has done a poo and ask me to change his nappy, but whenever we try potty training, h...

Potty Trained - but now wetting the bed/pants

My beautiful Emilia is now coming up to two-and-a-half. She announced at 22mths that she no longer wanted to wear nappies and had the grand total of two accidents in the whole potty training process, she was a gem! Then at 23mths she was dry through the night, again only a couple of nighttime accidents. However, this week, she has wet the bed 3 times (last night she wet it twice in one night) and today at nursery she even soiled herself, which she has never done. When I picked her up from nurser...

Does she do it to just wind me up?

Our two have the attention span of gnats, so dinner times are a nightmare. My DH uses reverse logic on them and keeps saying he is hungry and is going to eat the carrots, pasta (works through everything on their plates) and loads up their spoon and says he is just going to come back and eat it it but has to wash his hands/got a drink/another excuse first - they gobble their food down while he turns away and then burst out laughing. It is amazing how much they eat and it actually makes their meal...

Nursery for 12 month old! Wobbles & don't know what to do!

Snoopy, I know exactly how you feel. My two go to nursery two days a week (they are now 27mths). Emilia walks in as though she owns the place, Oscar on the other hand still clings to me and screams, which breaks my heart every time I walk out of the door. However, I know within 10mins he is fine. One thing that helps is that all the way to the nursery I tell them that 'mummy will be back' and repeat this over and over, Oscar repeats it back and this seems to give him some comfort - I have always...

2 year old health check

I phoned my HV (who I had not seen for over a year) and she did their review at 2yrs 1mth. She was very comprehensive and it gave me reassurance the twins were normal! I recommend you just call the HV number at the practice you are registered at.

Question C section or Natural Birth with Twins

Hello, for some reason I was determined to have a natural birth and never discussed anything other than that with my consultant. Luckily both my babies were head down and when I went into labour at 34+5 I ended up delivering both (with the help of forceps). Like Lou, I knew I was in good hands and if they had told me I needed a csection I would have gone with their advice. I just wanted to have as shorter recovery time as possible and also wanted to do what I thought was the 'natural' thing to d...

potty training - is it too early? Don't want to cause LO any harm

Hello rianon, Just saw this tread. Don't think you are trying to get your dd potty trained to early. I have 2yr old twins and Emilia decided it was nappies no more when she was about 21mths, Oscar however has not really made an attempt yet, though for the last week has had had 3 dry days so I think he is starting to follow his sister. It does however, prove that all children are different and will all get there in their own time. At home, when emilia first started potty training, we often had he...

Converting to a toddler bed and converting to duvets

Natural Horse, we have been through that one with Emilia and are going through it again this week with her. If she gets a really bad cold, we have to pick her up in the night to stop her coughing. After a couple of days of this her usually wonderful sleep pattern becomes a nightmare (she is lying asleep on the sofa next to me now after a screaming fit). So as soon as her cold goes my earplugs are going in too. Last time it took 4 days of controlled crying to get her back to normal sleep pattern....

Converting to a toddler bed and converting to duvets

Good luck Natural Horse. My two are doing OK with cot sides off. Emilia is great, stays in bed all night and sings in the morning until we go and get her.............Oscar is a different story, I cave and when he wakes up during the night I take him in with me, sleep is just too precious at the moment to waste on trying to settle him, get him back to bed only for him to waken again 2hr later. That will be dealt with over the xmas hols. however, both only fell out of bed once, no more accidents. ...
