Jems – I’m so damn happy for you, 6 frosties awaiting for you, hoping for a happy new year
Andrea – congratulations to you, what a great surprise after 2.5 years, those 2 lines are such a blessing. Wishing you a wonderful pregnancy, it’s so exciting. Have fun on your first ultrasound in a few weeks In regards to your question about immune problems, I’m still learning myself, but basically in our immune system we all have natural killer cells which help fight off infection and ‘foreign’ bodies such as cancer. Women who have a high amount of these killer cells find it hard to fall pregnant as the body detects the embryo as a foreign body and kills it. There are many other reasons how the immune system can affect fertility/implantation, which I’ve learned from a book called Is Your Body Baby-Friendly. Immune issues can be treated, which is a good thing. Here’s hoping that once I start my treatment my body will be more friendly to future embryo’s!
