@HollyGolightly81 so sorry for your loss 😔. I think when you've experienced a loss it definitely makes you overly cautious and wonder all of the "what ifs".
@twentysomething thank you for the reassurance! I wish I could just relax more about the whole thing. Google can be a horrible thing! Were you warned at all about the possibility of false positives and having to do more testing? I'm wondering if I should be tested or whether it will just create more stress...

With the false positive thing, I think the blood test either comes up positive or negative and that is for infection at some time in your life, and it's not really possible to tell how recent it was. So I guess the test is a bit of a can of worms because it doesn't give you much data.
With toxo, I know it's a scary one, but I've been around cats my whole life, literally from birth I have photos of baby me playing with the household cats, there has always been at least one in my home... we now have two indoor/outdoor boys and I have been tested before, it was negative. I agree it's very, very rare.

To help ease your mind I am also a vet nurse and have always had cats and tested negative. I worked while pregnant and handled plenty of cats, I also had to clean a cattery including litters, I used gloves and a mask as precaution and my lil nugget is 4 months. I also have two cats that have an inside litter, my DH and sister cleaned their litter for me (loved not having to do it for 9 months!) and my smooch you boy spent most of my pregnancy snuggled up to my belly and my girl was always on my lap so although it (very rarely) can be contracted from cat feces I'm sure if you take precautions you should be A-Ok. Good luck with your pregnancy!

Thank you so much everyone for the info and reassurance. You have all definitely made me feel better!
By the sounds of it it isn't as common as I first thought. My GP told me that in her whole career as a doctor she hasn't seen one case of it and my acupuncturist who has been a nurse/midwife since 1975 and has worked in all different countries said she can count on one hand how many cases she has seen. So I guess it's time for me to relax about the whole thing. The more relaxed I am during the IVF process the better my chances of success will be.
Again thank you ladies! You guys are amazing and very helpful. 😊💗
