@MGC Bertie if you want Dr Fulcher you have to book him now. I swear women must be calling him when they ovulate, he books out so fast. My OB was amazing, Dr Ming Yoong. He's very comfortable with immunology meds too, didn't freak out when I told him my Dr M protocol
@PurpleLove sorry to hear you've had some difficulties, thank goodness you and bub are both OK and I hope bub keeps baking until full term. Great to hear you've been treated well at Liverpool public too.

Your not wrong! My cousin books calls him the day she pees on a stick lol.
He is very popular.
Thank you. I'm on complete bed rest etc so every day is a blessing but not expected to last much longer.

Simpson.... I will be ringing and booking now first thing Monday as everyone is nicely scaring me. Actually Dr Ming Yoong is on my short list, so the immune things may now sway me. I can't remember, but did you come early? It's just that I half remember reading something about immune women not going full-term, but I can't remember where I read that.

MGC Bertie I was full term, 39+4. Both Dr Matthias & Dr Yoong were adamant I was not to go beyond 40 wks. Both suggested elective CS at 38wks as being safest for bub, but they supported my choice to try for spontaneous VB. The day my waters broke I was actually scheduled to see Dr Yoong and he was going to book me for induction!

Simpson.... thanks for all your helpful hints.... do keep them coming :-))
AFM.... Sitting here having my IVIG. Hospital doctor couldn't find a vein and in the end went with my arm, so I'm not able to straighten my arm as it stops the drip! What a pain!! However, my immune specialist, Dr M has just given me a referral for weekly beta + progesterone tests, which he said to continue until 9-10 weeks, so that's a great relief. He also said to do the FBC (monitoring Neupogen) every two weeks. And when I asked about who he would refer for an ob who is happy with his immune protocol, he said "no, he will do it." I said that I didn't know he actually delivers babies, but he said yes, only for those with high risk immune issues. Great, I didn't really know I was high risk!! He said to make an appointment with him in 2-3 weeks time. I'm really wondering what his fee will be, as I'm sure it's going to be on the high end, so not really sure if I'm going to be stung. But not having to find an ob, and go through my whole life story might be a blessing.
