    Hi Everyone ,

    HeatherM it has been quiet in here. Glad to hear you are still pregant although not so good to hear that you are not feeling well. You said you had a son already - is a girl what you were hoping for?

    Hopefulandwaiting - Congratulations on the birth of your daughther. Great news.

    Windupbird - Not long now. Good luck

    Tatiana 28 - Good luck to you also. I hope you get the birth you want.

    AFM - have start to TTC again after the miscarriages. Will hopefuly know if the next few day whether I am pregnant or not. Going for a blood test on Thursday and if pregnant will start asprin and clexane. I am excited by the thought of the pregnancy not so much with the clexane.

    sammyb999 my son is an ivf bubba and we used clexane and prednisolone on his cycle. dont know if you will need the asprin if on clexane???
    asprin thins the blood but clexane doesnt it just stops the blood from clotting.
    best of luck with your ivf cycle, bring on the bfp xoxo.

    cheekymonkey01 good luck with your ttc again.
    yes clexane sux and it hurts but it is worth it in the end if it brings a healthy bubba to you.
    not really fussed as to what sex we have although one of each would be nice, i think i want a girl cos the girls clothing is way better than boys and there is more of a selection for girls than boys. boys clothing is always the same and boring but girls is always different.
    i would like another boy as it would be a bit easier and cheaper(toys and clothes down the track.)not sure i would know what to do with a girl hahaha.
    one SILLY reason i want another boy is because most people i know have girls not boys and i am getting the whole "oh if you have a girl you can have my stuff" not sure i want everyones sloppy seconds clothing as i dont know how well people look after the clothing.

    tatiana and windupbird all the very best for your bubbas arrivals.
    hope they both give you a pleasant birth xoxo

    tatiana you are a brave woman giving birth at home i dont think i could do it but then again they class me as high risk so better i dont even try.

    afm nothing new to report except for i got a letter in the post advising me of my next appointment and it is on 23rd december hopefully it wont be too busy on the roads as it is one of the busiest days over xmas and i have to drive over an hour each way to and from the hospital.

    hope everyone else is doing well

    xoxo

    Hi Sammyb999, Welcome. I haven't had IVF so I don't know if this is relevant or not and I don't have any success stories (not yet!) to tell. But I have lupus and antiphospholipid syndrome and so I am on clexane, asprin and prednisolone. I have had two early pregnancy losses and my obstetric physician said that I am on the full treatment to stop pregnancy loss as a result of antibodies (nothing more they can do) so although they don't think it is related to my medical condition that I am on the right things anyway so I am hoping that means greater success next time around. Not sure if that story helps or not.

    Heather M - good to hear from you and things are going well. It might be quiet on the 23rd with lots of people missing their appts to go shopping and getting ready for christmas. But I agree the roads are probably going to be busy. I agree that girls clothes are way cutier but I must admit in the last few years boys clothes have really improved. But I suppose you are over boys clothes.

    AFM: Day 12 dpo and still BFN - I am starting to think maybe this is not our month.

    hey thanks heatherm, im sure ive seen you around on her a number of times before and spoken to you, thanks for your words appreciate it. the doc said if i want to do asprin i can so will talk to them friday. cant hurt i guess!. congrats to you aswell!

    cheekymonkey- thanks for writing. sounds like similar boat but the lupus would make it so much harder ive had two early chemical pregnancys but that was from ivf never fallen naturally. so with you trying naturally your on clexane and pred constantly?. dont give up just yet ive heard stranger stories. hope you are one of those 'other people' tha it happens too fingers x

    Hello All,
    CheekyMonkey Hope you are UTD.
    Sammy. Welcome.
    Tatiana and Heather and Windupbird. Good luck with the upcoming happy event.
    Hopefulandwaiting. Congrats. I am so thrilled for you.
    Congrats also to anyone else I have missed.

    AFM: Ive just had my 2nd miscarriage, so really sad right now. Got further along - which is good and bad all rolled into one.
    Ended up in ED at hospital as the pain was so severe, losing lots of clots and blood and feeling faint. M/C was not complete, so had to have a curette today!

    I wanted to ask about prednisolone and its use/mechanism to help.
    I have Lupus, Anti-phospholipid syndrome (ACA and other antibodies) and low platelets.
    Both IVF specialist and obstetrician have agreed a plan on aspirin (150mg daily) and clexane (40mg daily) from the night before embryo transfer.
    Prednisolone has been mentioned by my haematologist and rheumatologist.

    Do I need to add this to my baby preservation regimen?
    I know some of you have used it, so your thoughts,input,advice would be greatly appreciated.

    PS: Aspirin and clexane together are advocated in certain people (like me).

    Hi Everyone,

    Sammyb999 - I am not usually on predisolone constantly (take Imuran for lupus) but was on Predisone for a lupus flare in Feb and had nearly weaned off it when I went to the obstetric physician before TCC and she said that she would rather me just keep on a constant low dose than going up and down in dose. So yes I am on predisolone at the moment constantly. But my dr said that they use predisolone also for women with recurrent miscarriage also. crossed for you too. Did you decide to take aspirin?

    Emzy78 - Congraulations - best wishes for you and your family

    MsCurlyGirl - I am so sorry to hear that you miscarried . I was really hoping that this one would of stuck. I am not a dr and I can only go on my experience of having lupus and APS but I think I would consider adding prednisolone. As I said - I have usually have only used predisone or betamethosone when I am having a flare as it isn't something that they wanted me on everyday for a long time unless it was for a purpose such as pregnancy. I only take a low dose 10 mg day (since March this year) - compared to 100 mg when I am having a flare. For the pregnancy side of things -I have been told by my drs that it can help people with recurrent miscarriage not just those with lupus. On the lupus side of things - it helps suppress the antibody activity. I know whith my body if my body becomes "stressed" eg having an operation I will have a flare of my lupus so I figured that pregnancy probably would put "stress" and might have a flare. So far I haven't had any major flares - in my two pregnancies (although they haven't worked out they think it is not lupus related) being on the low dose predisolone. I have also found being on both imuran and predisolone my lupus has been more stable than with imuran alone. Actually since being on the low dose predisolone constantly my blood tests are the best it has been in atleast 5 years - including my indicators of APS. Although taking predisolone is not without its risks - weight gain, brittle bones, can't stop taking it suddenly etc and you should talk to you dr about it. If you don't mind me asking what are you taking for your lupus?

    AFM: AF arrived which I have been abit sad about. I really thought I was pregnant by my symptoms but I have to remember I would rather it not work out early than having to wait until the miscarriage if it is not meant to end in a happy way.

    Hello,

    CheekyMonkey. I am so sorry to hear that it didnt work out this month. Better luck next month.
    Thanks for sharing your info on prednisone. I will definitely discuss it with my Drs.
    Actually my lupus is asymptomatic - and I was only diagnosed because I was being tested for everything under the sun to see if we could figure out why IVF was not working for me.
    I have had low platelets for over 20 years - and was on prednisone for that for over 10 years. My rhuematologist tells me that low platelets is a symptom of lupus - but 20 years ago they did not have all the tests and knowledge to diagnose lupus.
    It seems like a low dose of 10mg from when we do the next FET will be worth a try. We have two more frosties left.
    I take heart from all the stories I hear in this thread of women who do manage to have a healthy baby despite all the blood issues we have. I have to believe that if we persevere that we can do i too.

    Hi Ms CurlyGirl,
    Lupus is a funny disease, it affects everyone differently. At least they have found it out now so you have the best shot to have a healthy baby. I too have heard on lots of ladies with Lupus and APS having healthy babies. Before we were TCC I went on a specific lupus forum to ask about taking imuran and pregnancy and people shared a lot of positive stories. I share your philosophy - I am not saying I don't have the occasional "down" day but I believe that one day we will have our baby - I suppose you have to believe otherwise you wouldn't continue with this journey. I am not sure if you are interested or when you will be ready to TCC again but I thought I would mention that I have joined a forum TTC after miscarriage - I have found them to be very supportive and friendly and it good to share the up and downs and fears of TCC after miscarriage. It is under the pregnancy loss section - and it is TTC after miscarriage #2 (as there are a couple of threads). Just a thought and I am not sure if you have seen it ....

    Have a chat with your Drs but I was on the predisolone for a little while before TTC to let the medication kick in - I am not sure whether it is worth to start the pred before you next transfer it give it the best chance. Just another thought ...
    Hope you are having a relaxing weekend
