Hi @Mink- it doesn't really talk about how to make your body more baby friendly - but more about why it might not be, and the immune treatments that can help to sustain the embryo from implantation to delivery.
It goes through the 5 groups of immune categories- I had symptoms from a couple of those groups being Coeliac and having Endo (Endo shows up in a few of the categories also which I found interesting).
BTW- read your signature - stage 5 Endo woah! I was only stage 3, can't imagine the pain you must have been in!
Hope this helps, and yep if you think you have immune issues, would def recommend investing in the book 🤓 if anything it nights just clarify a few things for you
Let me know if ou need anymore info xo
Billie2 Yep CD4 for me... Best thing I found was not to overwork the thinking or build up to it... Now for me it's a non issue after 4 years of doing it but I remember the anxiety first up... My biggest bum is the bruising bloody clexane, I'm currently on 3 jabs a day.
Try and find a happy though and just pop it in ☺️☺️

Billie2 this is true... I was starting to feel a bit overwhelmed just at the thought of jumping back in when last week we were fingers xd pregnant... It is such a merry go round... Getting better at stopping and just breathing.... Andddd maybe putting on some really loud music to sing really badly too 😉
Hi ladies, just plodding along in my tww here. It's been less painful than my last one, because I just don't think it's going to work so I'm just carrying on as usual. No urge to test, no urge to prod my boobs to see if they're sore...nothing. It's so weird.
I'm 5dp3dt and my bloods are in 6 days, I will poas the morning of my beta if AF hasn't arrived. She's due Thursday.
Hope everyone else in the tww is not going too crazy, and everyone waiting to cycle are keeping themselves busy somehow!
Interesting article from ABC re two embrie transfer. Obviously there are chances or complications or early pregnancy but less likely for multiple births in older women.
"The prospective study found that the live birth rate was greater when two embryos versus one were transferred - regardless of the age of the woman."
And if you're worried about complications (as some have mentioned with twins) you should really look into the studies for single embryo transfer done on the benefits of using frozen transfers over fresh as studies show frozen is a lot safer-
"Babies which grow from frozen embryos are less likely to be born preterm or underweight and have a lower risk of dying in the days after their birth, a study found.
Using embryos which have been frozen and then thawed, rather than being implanted shortly after being created, also reduced the risk of bleeding in the mother during pregnancy."
Food for thought

Ooh and just read an interesting quote about frozen embries 😊
Multiple studies have found the infants from frozen embryo cycles to be healthier than their fresh counterparts. This might be because fresh embryos are typically returned to a uterine environment that was exposed to ovarian stimulation and resulting hormone levels far exceeding natural conditions, and this altered uterine environment might affect the embryo’s ability to implant and grow properly. Oocyte donation and gestational carrier cycles also avoid such exposure, whether using fresh or frozen embryos.
