@JulieMalooley what's the trial?
@JulieMalooley dunno, i thought it was the theory that if it hasn't worked by then then its not going to with no real other explanation!!! "we don't know" basically.
if I had a dollar for every time I've heard that
tuxcat are you going to be doing the immune protocol type stuff - prednisone/aspirin etc? @Bongley, the trial is probiotics are looking like they can help prevent gestational diabetes. They want people with a BMI over 25 - mine was 24.6 two weeks ago but has now gone to 25.6 so they might put me in. Some people get probiotics, some get a placebo and it means some extra blood tests. Why not I say... what's a few more needles after the 8294 I've had so far...
@greenlady that is great news!
That's the article I tried to attach a cpl of weeks ago- glad it finally appeared somewhere that would attach properly!
@JulieMalooley yay on seeing bubbas! Dr m has put me on metformin to try and help regulate my sugar levels (apparently pred can give you a false positive for gd test). I have my gd test next Monday.
Next stop after it is DE and if we have trouble there then I will enquire again about the NK/immune thing. I know theres many advocates for it on here, Im just not sold. But I have had a strong anti all that stuff FS and Im still not a mother so there you go. who the fruck knows
Ive started taking the aspirin tho with all my vitamins, thats the easy bit. My FS was happy for me to do the aspirin and clex last cycle after transfer so i did. didn't change the embryo tho!!!
Chiefsgirl good luck with your GD test. There's also this article about metformin being trialled to help prevent pre-eclampsia
Seems like a pretty helpful drug all round. I've been on it for a few years as it helps PCOS. It's really helped me to keep the weight off too. Hopefully they keep telling me to take it after the scan.
great follies green lady! sorry I've forgotten, are you doing EPU or PGD testing this time?
nice you got to see the twins again JM. my sister had gest. diabetes with her (natural) pg. she had to have needles every day and watch her diet. she was quite fit and thin too. (I wish I'd been given that gene to not put on weight no matter how much I ate like she did)
tuxcat, I have a good feeling about this cycle. I suspect the no alcohol from your DP will help (not suggesting he was a big drinker previously, but my only bfp was after a dry july 3months from my DP earlier and I think it helped us - he is a big drinker)
winsor he is a big drinker, red wine being his drink of choice. he keeps commenting about how well he's sleeping. his mood is constant and happy and he hasn't taken one single panadol this year yet
his trouble is he cant just have 2 drinks, he's got to do 2 bottles or close to
we both love our wine and have many many friends who do too and one of which has a business selling gorgeous wines so its all around us!
