    Sonja, should we ask a moderator to move this thread to another area? I certainly don't want any intended mums to get distressed over this. It's not worth it.

    Babies are babies. They are ours to take care of and raise. Anyone against IVF should not be participating anyway. I couldn't give a flying hoot if people don't agree with IVF. It's what I had to do to have kids, and it's my right. No one else is going to tell me otherwise. (Sorry, very passionate lol).

    Maybelline, I wasn't suggesting you are against IVF love. I understand the raising of the topic as I have seen it mentioned on the news so naturally, it does lead to questions.
    I just wanted to point out that I am an IVF mum and I am very pro IVF or whatever decisions women have to make to conceive their little miracles. Absolutely no judgements here. I travelled down that path and I am still on it (in a different way) and I don't think anyone has the right to judge someone else's decision.

    No I don't think this is the right place for this thread. Women on here are pregnant and have had IVF babies. Topics such as this are fine for debate but not here where the babies are conceived.

    I would also hate to think people would post anti IvF comments in an IVF thread (not suggesting anyone who has already posted has done that).

    Yes I personally think it should be moved.

    I find it interesting - my hubby is an IVF baby and about to turn 30 - he has already been contacted by Epworth (i think they may be monash not sure) - anyway he already been contacted by them to get his health monitored/recorded. I don't know details but i think it will be a 5yr check up until/unless any health issues arise.

    My dh has a brother and a sister - his brother has complicated health issues, his sister has minor and he (touch wood) is fighting fit. Perhaps it depends on the person.

    In their case, they used the mother eggs and donor sperm - DH has a different donor to his bro and sis. DH mum has some health issues (not fertility related) and so far none of her children have the same issues. DH found his donor dad and seems to have very similar health/genes to him. We don't know who bro and sister donor was so we have no comparision.

    I don't see a problem with this thread being in this section at all. It's about IVF babies and their possible future and as my son was IVF I only use this part of the BH forums so wouldnt find it if it were somewhere else.

    There has been a recent report (as in the last month - my husband sent it to me as he gets most of the latest research trends emailed to him being a Pharmacy student) on IVF babies being more likely to develop heart disease later in life. I thought it was a little odd since the oldest IVF child isnt all that old just yet! Since the oldest IVF babies are still only in their 30s/40s we really have no idea how being born via IVF will affect them and what affects them may not affect IVF children of the current generation (we use much less drugs etc then they did way back then for example, although we also use many different drugs they had no idea about too!)

    I do know there is plenty of research out there saying IVF babies are more likely to suffer from genetic conditions and the like (we werent allowed to jump straight to IVF because of this research as FS thought it was quite noteworthy) but further research revieled that this was not due to the IVF itself but due to the underlying causes of infertility.

    Thanks EarthAngel75.
    This something that all mums/dads doing/have done IVF may need to keep an eye on. Like you said, the oldest IVF baby is in his/her thirties. Personally, I would want to keep informed on what is going on with the studies. How seriously you want to take the studies, is an individual choice. I point this out bec how many studies have been done for eg on cholesterol? One study says that eating eggs are no good, then another says they are fine, etc. They could be jumping the gun a little here, but still, good to know that it's being monitored.

    The thread doesn't seem to have been moved, so I take it it's ok where it is?
