    From his reading of the post Mortem investigations he did say there were some red flags that indicated immune issues were at play. I don't know what category that is until all my results are looked over by Prof M. I really hope to get a follow up ASAP as I'm eager to try again.

    I am just finishing off my 7th intralipid session for this pregnancy and am 28 weeks. Most ladies can stop after 12 weeks but he keeps testing my levels and they are still high. Only one more to go. It's been expensive but worth it.

    I just had intralipids last night too. I am almost 18 weeks and I am happy to do it as long as it keeps bubs alive and kicking. I was on the Maternity ward last night and I was out of there the earliest I have ever been. They were so much more attentive than on the surgical ward where they were always so much more busy or perhaps understaffed.
    Wishing you all the best with the rest of your pregnancy!

    I dont know the medical answer
    But have seen friends on 50mg and others on 10mg

    I also think he prescribes correctly and pred doesn't cross the placenta.

    Most people wean off by early in 2nd trimester.

    I think its also important to keep in mind, he prescribes so you get a take home baby.

    The risk for cleft palette increases from a 1% chance normally to a 2% chance on prednisone which isn't huge so I was ok taking the increased risk. I was on 25mg at most but I have seen people on higher. I was on dexamethasone until 8 weeks (when placenta takes over) then was switched to pred as it doesn't cross placenta the same.

    Just what Dr M prescribed. He tests you and then does a custom plan for you based on individual requirements. I think that's why he is successful. There is no one size fits all.

I see you've added the others, but I suspect they are blood tests and I'm interested in the 4 NKCs that need to be tested from a biopsy.

    I was going to get Dr Reid at Genea to do the lap and biopsy, but he only tests for 2 NKCs and G won't tell me what they all are so I can go and get them tested while I wait for my telephone consult with Dr M...
    No
    That's just what was on doctor M's
