Menopur newbie - refrigeration

I've just used menopur (powders) and it didn't needs to be in the fridge. My trigger shot (ovitrelle) did need to be in the fridge though.

teaching toddler to undress herself??

I really wouldn't worry. My little girl is 24 months and she can take her socks off, a cardi, coat, shoes etc but still needs help with everything else. I think 18 months is way too early for them to be able to undress themselves. Sometimes I don't know where these people get these 'milestones' from They're just made up to make us feel we're failing I reckon!

Sleep advice for one twin who won't settle

Hi Jannie So sorry you're having a tough time getting Oscar to sleep. Here is my advice, it my sound harsh though - you can choose whether to try it or not I think you're going to have to start putting him to bed and letting him cry. I know you'll immediately say 'I can't, he'll wake E' but I heard good advice last night that once E has been asleep for 20 mins but O to bed as she'll be in a deep sleep and shouldn't be woken by him. I know it seems harsh to let him cry but he needs to learn to fa...

anyone had IVF treatment at st marys manchester

I think the waiting time depends how busy they are. Also, they'll need time to recieve your results and review them. Then I imagine they'll call you in for a consultation to discuss the results and the treatment they propose for you. Do you know how many cycles of IVf your PCT will fund? Yes, I've had 2 ovarian ectopics. I managed to keep all my bits and pieces though. The admin at St Marys can be a bit rubbish so keep on their backs if you're not hearing back from them as quickly as you'd like ...

anyone had IVF treatment at st marys manchester

Hi Gill I had treatment there in 2009 & 2010 and your BMI had to be below 30 then. Have you been referred? Been there for a consultation yet?

Hello, new, scared and just a bit bewildered!

They'll definitely go through success rates with you and my cons was very honest about it all which helped. I've had 2 ectopics and he said as I've still got both my ovaries I've still got as good a chance of those who haven't had ectopics as both ovaries can still potentially produce eggs. Be prepared they may go through the options of donor eggs or sperm with you. Just think about it beforehand. We weren't prepared for that conversation when we went for our initial consulatation years ago and ...

Hello, new, scared and just a bit bewildered!

Hi there I just wanted to wish you well for Friday. I'm sure your consultation will go well and that it'll help you feel less scared. Just take small steps at a time and you will start to feel more in control and ready for your cycle. There are so many ladies on here who have had success with icsi and who I'm sure will be able to support you through this journey. Write down loads of questions for Friday so you dont forget them and use it as an opportunity to get as many facts as possible. Good l...

a little advice about my lil boy before i drive myself insane.

Hi there I'm so sorry you're having this worry BUT I really think he sounds normal. He sounds exactly like my lo and she has 2 creases on her hands. The not using a spoon and fork thing will just be habit at the moment and perhaps because it's easier? Wouldn't an autistic child be more concerned with using a spoon so he doesn't get his hands dirty? I know it's so hard but try not to worry - he sounds perfectly normal to me!

How to deal with a fussy eater @18 months

Hi Just keep doing what you're doing, don't make a big fuss over it, lots of smiles even if she wont eat her food but don't give her too much attention for the 'not eating food' behaviour is my suggestion. As you say she's not starving and it is a phase that will pass. My lo goes in fits and starts, one week she eats up everything and other weeks barely touches a thing. I find it really hard because you slave over nice food for them (fresh ingredients aren't cheap either!) and then they refuse i...

Newbie very confused

Hi there Great news that you can start IVF treatment. I have had IVf at St Marys and Care. Can I ask how the question has been broached to you? Are you paying for treatment or is it on the NHS? I'm just a bit confused as St Marys is NHS and Care is Private.

Hello - we are new and have no idea what to expect....

Hi Wallinski My gorgeous 19 month old daughter is a result of IVF at St Marys I found the waiting and 'admin' so frustrating - they just seem a bit disorganised - BUT the care throughout treatment is amazing. The nurses are so helpful and welcoming of questions etc. Did you ask when you can start treatment? I'd keep on their case re the results and call them in 10 weeks just to see if they're back yet. There is no harm in being a bit pushy. Find out if you can start IVF as soon as the results ar...

how many calories do i need to be eating while breastfeeding?

Hi there I breastfed my daughter for 9 months but didn't ever suffer lack of appetite but know in the first few weeks struggled to find time and remember to eat proper meals. It's tough having a tiny baby and we put ourselves at the bottom of the pecking order. Good advice I was given was that when I sat down to breastfeed to have a big drink and snack next to me to have whilst feeding. It meant I kept my energy levels up and was hydrated. You need to drink loads and loads when breastfeeding. I ...

10 month old not sleeping at nursery

HI there A few months ago I could have easily written this post myself. Meg started nursery when she was 13 months old. At home she'd sleep 12-13 hours at night and have 2 sleeps a day, we were very lucky. When she started nursery I told them her routine and they tried to get her to sleep and she wouldn't. When she first started she didn't sleep at all and oh my goodness when we picked her up she looked as pale as a ghost. In the baby room the cots are just down one end of the room so its very n...

IVF Resulted in ectopic pregnancy. Now have to wait to have other tube removed. Anyone else experienced this??

Oh Lorraine, I'm so sorry you've been through this. I had 2 ectopics, both on my right ovary and natural bfps, they were treated with methotrexate so I didn't have my ovary or tubes removed. My fear was with IVF that it'd be ectopic again but it wasn't. I guess they're removing your other tube as you say it isn't good? They're obviously willing to let you try to TTC on clomid until then though, can't they give you a little bit longer?

Advice needed with breastfeeding

Hi Rocky Is there a childrens centre near you that offers a breastfeeding support group? I know breastfeeding can be quite private and it can be an awkward topic to talk to strangers about but you sound as though you really want to continue breastfeeding and I think if you could get some one-to-one help you can get through this horrid phase quite quickly. Are you going to a post-natal group? Can you phone your health visitor/midwives for help? I agree with what the other ladies have said. Meg de...

high chairs?

We've got a Tripp Trapp at home but Meg has used the antilop one from Ikea on 2 different holidays and it's fab, would definitely recommend.
