Immune /natural killer cell treatment when ttc or pregnant (aka the 18th pred thread!)(1000 Posts)
This is a thread for those diagnosed with high or very high natural killer cells and trying to concieve or are pregnant and taking steroids/intralipids etc
Newcomers very welcome
Hey Ladies, here s there new thread as the old one has been closed, hope you find it ok asYay sunny and snoopy for your good scans.
Sunny my ds was 9lb (i m only 5ft3 and 54kg) so that was a very tight squeeze, i went to 41 wks with him and if i d known he was going to be that big i would have been happy with him being encouraged to come a bit earlier !
Drttc - i m sending all my positive vibes for a good scan on thurs. You really derserve this to be your take home bubba couldnt post on the last one as it was full.
Thanks for starting the new thread hula!
Thank you Hula and cheers on making the thread!
Yes scan is on Thursday Seeking- Très nervous
Thank you for the new thread hula.
drttc what time is your scan tomorrow? And how's the pup?
I might wear something tight to work tomorrow instead of the big cardigan I've convinced myself hide my belly haha and I'm going to see the snoopy movie!
Thanks for the thread Hula **
Good luck tomorrow Drttc, will be thinking of you.
Snoopy, I think it's time you pull on the tight top and show off your little bump. Enjoy the film!
My scan is at noon tomorrow!
Yes Snoopy- show it off!
I wore my tfl badge into the office at six thirty this morning and there was only one other person in and she immediately asked when are you due, is it your first etc. I just kind of mumbled and stuttered some reply, such an idiot
drttc will be thinking of you today, keep us updated!
We have a heartbeat at 5 weeks 4 days!! Was able to hear it and everything. We were all crying in the ultrasound room. In such shock and so so happy xx
Thank you so much ladies! On cloud nine!!
Enjoy that feeling, you deserve it! Do you feel a little bit more relaxed now for Christmas?
I think for today I can be happy- worry will likely set in once I start wondering what's going on in there again! But yes, for Christmas I'm happy to know there's a little heart beating in there... For the first time, I'm not having a chemical pregnancy!
Also want to wish everyone (Snoopy, Sunny, Seeking, Hula, Rosa, Trying, those lurking) a very Merry Christmas! Thank you so much for all your support thus far- I know I can be quite neurotic! It's been such a blessing to 'meet' you all, and I've learned so much about myself and this community. Very long road ahead still for myself and most of us... But I just know we can do this!
Great news Drttc! Long may the good news continue!
Merry Christmas everyone, wishing you all a wonderful day. I know this time of year can be incredibly hard but you are all such remarkable women, who deserve so much happiness. Thank you for all your support this year,
May 2016 be the year we all finally get some dreams that come true.
drttc it seems like this is a process of small victories, you've overcome that first milestone and hopefully that positivity carries you to the next one.
Merry Christmas everyone, wherever we are in the world and whatever we're feeling we always have each other x
Wow what fantastic news with the scans Drttc, snoopy and sunny!!! I'm So pleased for you all!!
Merry Christmas to everyone and thanks for all your support over the last 6 months xx
Hope everyone had a great xmas. Think I upset the mother in law - she wrapped up some Christmas presents for the baby and I told her to take them away as I don't want to jinx things plus I find it a bit weird buying a present for someone who isn't here yet if that kind of makes sense!
She was like well you have all the baby stuff in the nursery - trying to explain that if I didn't need to have it ready I wouldn't but I can't get out of it. Don't think she understands how anxious I still am about everything being ok. Even dh didn't really back me up or get it! Arrrrrrggggghhhhhhh! I have a feeling she is going to be very interfering and wanting to see the baby all the time - she has been waiting years for a grandchild.
Sorry to vent, I know I'm in a fortunate position
I understand sunny, people don't get why I don't really want to talk about our little one, people just find it hard to consider that not every pregnancy ends with a baby and when I said to one friend 'I don't want to count this little chicken until it's hatched' she just stared at me like I was mad.
Maybe compose a text to MIL saying you really appreciate the gusts and you know she is excited about grandchildren but you're still very scared and are having a difficult time?
That should say gifts not gusts, idiot phone.
My brother and sil got us a lovely card yesterday because they 'couldn't ignore bump anymore' and were telling us to try hypno birthing and buy this buy that, I just smiled and nodded thinking up myself 'don't get too caught up in this, you have such a long way to go'
Sunny- don't give it anymore thought! Her feelings are her own problem, not yours. I'm sure you'll be able to put her in her place when/if the time comes. You've (not her) been through hell and high water to get here- so you're the boss
Aww Snoopy... At least they mean well. It's difficult but sometimes it does seem easier to just let people carry on and keep some 'controversial' thoughts to ourselves.
I've been soooooo nauseous for the last week and it's caught me completely off guard. I thought the prednisone would do a really good job of masking symptoms- especially this early. I pretty much feel car/sea sick from the time I wake up until the time I go to bed So so grateful but woefully underprepared! Have ordered a seaband in the hope it'll arrive quickly.
I had a huge bleed that started last night.
Have gone in for a scan today and I have a large bleed underneath the pregnancy sac (baby is doing great). Shehatas clinic is closed but the technician told me I need to ask them if I should stop my blood thinners (which I technically don't need) as they are likely aggravating the bleed preventing the bleed from clotting. Anyone stop blood thinners due to a bleed or know anything about this?
Sorry drttc I'm only on aspirin. Have you tried ringing Louise's mobile? Or if your on Facebook or want to try the recurrent miscarriage board I know some of them had bleeds in blood thinners but cannot remember the advice .
Thinking of you x
