    One question for us Elevated NK cell ladies - I understand that prednisone can retain fluid, and that we can't take anti inflammatories to reduce fluid build up - does anyone know if krill oil is harmful when TTC??? It's just that my knee has been swelling up over the last week (I've had problems with knees and hips - old injuries) and I want to continue to exercise - so want to try and do this as pain free as possible obviously (ive also started swimming once a week so that should help my exercise regime) especially since prednisone will more than likely increase weight (I'm not overweight by any means) just trying to contain it - any suggestions more than welcome!!!

    Hi Ladies,

    It's a confirmed BFN. I received my blood test results today.

    I have peace that I tried EVERYTHING possible to have a 2nd child and can do no more. Time for us to move on with the rest of our lives!!!

    All the very best to you all.

    Helen x

    My GP suggested to foot soak using Epson salt soak (like a natural DHEA) as that is good for egg quality thought that might interest you

    They are the same thing as DHEA but a natural form. So they improve eggs not sure whether quality or quantity. Basically its a natural form of DHEA rather than a drug which can potentially cause cancer (I think). The epson salts go into bucket or foot bath with water and soak feet which gets absorbed through the skin

    That is probably the hardest decision you ever have to make. I know there comes a time when we all have to move on and we are also nearly there. We were refused adoption, have been trying for almost 10 years and although we would rather have had adopted children than doing IVF we still end up having to have it so that we have tried everything first. There is a great book Sour grapes which I read and although it made me cry was very helpful in taking the first steps to acceptance.
