No action so far ladies! Should be anytime this week though. So far I've had a second acupuncture session on Sat to try and get things going, but was unresponsive. She thought I may not be quite ready hormonally. I had a membrane sweep yesterday. Lots of tightening and twinges last night but baby still staying put for now. MILs birthday meal tonight so maybe it will choose it's moment then! If no action I then have another antenatal appt on Tues where I will have another sweep and make an appointment for induction. So, one way or another it should arrive by next weekend.

I was wondering about euro too actually. I spotted her over on the pregnancy board with a BFP a few weeks ago but not seen anything since. I hope all's ok.

Buster76 Mon 08-Apr-13 21:03:14

I'm getting induced tomorrow. Excited.......and very nervous!!

Inducing me at 38 weeks because of my factor V leiden.
Will let you know when he/she arrives.

Good luck kittens

Loitering for news too - took me ages to find the thread!

freelancegirl Sat 13-Apr-13 10:12:07

Where is everyone? Hope all is well. Am also bumping the thread as there was a poster in Chat who'd had several and just had another mc and I suggested we might be able to help and support in some way. Will send link to her now.

Hey free hope you and the little man are well?there are a big bunch of us on the super ovulation thread from here- most of us are are no longer trying SO and have moved onto IVF or other things as pred and nk cell treatment wasn't cutting it for us. We are going to rename the thread when this runs out but there are def 2 routes - pred etc works pretty quickly all the pred thread babies grin or else it doesn't and we are the second bunch who r trying to find and discover other related routes... It's quite nice us unsuccessful ones so far are helping each other with the more extensive testing and all the pit falls and discoveries we are facing. Not sure what we will re name it but there is def a link between the 2. Most of us read pred thread but is mainly for successful pred pregnancies and their development, most of us other lot can't get off the starting mark and as have been on the treatment plan so long has started to cause other potential issues etc. Anyway, when we've got the new name we'll post it over for any struggling ladies out therethanks

Hello there! I'm still in limbo at the moment. I was supposed to go in to UCH for induction at 10am this morning but they told me not to come in as they had no labour rooms free as a lot of women had been induced and were waiting to give birth, so I've been told to call them back in an hour and they will tell me when to come in.

So far I've had 4 sweeps and 3 acupuncture sessions but this little one is already taking after it's dad by being stubborn and running a bit late.

I guess I'm a bit of an anomaly as I fall between the two of duggs' classifications. Took me 18 months to get pregnant on the pred treatment but have been lucky to get to term first time.

lemonsherbet Sat 13-Apr-13 14:33:30

Hi Kittens hope you get some news soon.

I am also a complete anomaly. Had pred for just under 1 year but did not get pregnant, other than one chemical pregnancy. Mr S retested my NK cells and they had gone up despite the prednisolone (they were very high instead of being high). He suggested SO (since I was no longer getting pregnant), intralipids, pred, hydroxychloroquine and continue on the aspirin and vitamin D. We stopped all treatment and decided to push for a NHS referral to speak to another specialist. Anyway on stopping all treatment a couple of months later fell pregnant and am now 30 weeks. Never restarted treatment. So I guess the pred must be working on something other than the NK cells. Since my count was very high in the end.

I tend to be on the SO board with the other long timers.

duggs1976 Sat 13-Apr-13 16:34:40

Yes my NK count had come down to normal levels after intrallipids pred the works wirh ivf but I mc the chromosonally tested embies anyway so that told me. Haven't taken pred for over 8 mths as discovered the sperm DNA and other issues wirh dr G and sue had stopped pred too when she fell I think? But I reckon I'd neck a few for good measure if I ever get pg again as I've a drawer full of them. confused
So kittens how frustrating to wait ... We all thinking of you. How's buster too I wonder?

freelancegirl Sat 13-Apr-13 17:42:02

Very frustrating kittens! Wont be long now, in the scheme of things. But when you've had years of recurrent mc and several pregnancies in a row a standard length pregnancy, added in with a lot of past experience paranoia, sure can seem to drag.

Waiting for news of buster too!

So glad all is going well for you lemons.

Duggs - you're so resourceful. Lots of positive vibes to you all on the SO/more than SO thread.

lemonsherbet Sun 14-Apr-13 15:20:07

Just wondering if there was any news from Kittens

Stillcluelessat40 Mon 15-Apr-13 00:07:13

Has anyone heard anything from Buster ?

Stillcluelessat40 Mon 15-Apr-13 00:08:23

(Really should remember when I've name-changed, numpty)

freelancegirl Mon 15-Apr-13 08:55:12

I'm lurking for news of buster and kittens too. Yep to the name change but you've still neglected to say who you are! Who are you - namechange person ? smile

Havingkittens Mon 15-Apr-13 15:18:55

Hello, just a quickie from me as we've just got home from the hospital and I'm trying to return messages, get a bath in, have a nap etc before family visitors pop by.

Our little boy, Alfred (Alfie to his friends, or Fred if he fancies it) was born at 7.30 yesterday morning after a very fast and furious 4.4hr labour following induction. Not much pain relief to speak of, even though I really could've done with it. There just wasn't time! But, as the consultant who came to say hello this morning said "Labour is not really fun so you might as well get it done quick, like ripping off a plaster!"

I'm just taking it all in at the moment. I can't believe he's here!

Abney Mon 15-Apr-13 15:32:25

Havingkittens A huge congratations to you and your family on the birth of little Alfred. I have been eagerly waiting for your news. I only have 4 weeks to go now for baby lewis to arrive. Dh named him before he was even conceived.

Good luck to everyone else. I am still keeping up to date with this thread and the SO thread and am eagerly waiting for more good news.

TheAccidentalExhibitionist Mon 15-Apr-13 15:34:43

HavingKittens huge congratulations flowers flowers flowers
I hope you're not in too much pain?

ChoccyPud Mon 15-Apr-13 16:43:49

Oh Kittens I'm getting all weepy here whilst at the same time dancing with joy! Many many congratulations on the safe arrival of Alfie. I'm delighted for you that he's finally here after the last couple of years you've had. Love and hugs to you and oh xx

freelancegirl Mon 15-Apr-13 16:55:03

Kittens!!!! A baby!!!! At last!!! Ahhh I'm so very pleased for you. Enjoy every minute - and those crazy hormonal, anxious, awesome days.

Gorgeous name and so glad to hear it was a fast and furious labour if not quite pain free! Dont go leaving us now will you? We want regular updates!

So good it's going well too Abney. Now where is buster?
