Re: To Bed Rest or Not To Bed Rest????

My clinic says just to take it easy for the day of ET especially and then semi-easy for the few days after that, but doesn't recommend bed rest as such. No heavy lifting or anything which raises the heart rate, but no specific restrictions other than that. I too was a bit confused about what to do a...

Re: Acupuncture

I'm a big acupuncture convert, I have seen it make noticeable physical differences for me (a good example is really growing poorly developing follicles during an IUI cycle far more than the expected 1-2mm a day when scans showed I was having problems growing follies and my IUI was on the verge of ge...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Hey ladies, just popping in quickly to check in but have no time to post personals to everyone. Crazy busy days trying to get ready for the house move - we are moving over Tuesday and Wednesday so we are down to our last few days to sort things out and try and get things in good order. Good order? I...

Re: Winter 2010-2011 Cycle Board

Franny, miss you too honey!

Lou - yep, like Franny said you're certainly loved around here! Not sure I've ever seen so many messages pour in so quickly - there must have been dozens of us gatecrashers checking this board constantly today!!

To everyone else, wishing you smooth journeys and the very best of luck.

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

OK, so my optimism at being able to post properly again was a bit misplaced - things have been crazy with the new house and trying to sort out the existing house ready for the house move in 9 days, plus juggling things with George! I haven't been able to read properly either so I'm very behind on ev...

Re: April/May Cycle Buddies!

It's been ages since I've been able to check on the boards so it has taken me a while to spot this thread, but I wanted to gatecrash to say a huge good luck to you guys - Michele, I'm so happy to see that you and DH are able to cycle again, I'll be stalking you as best I can and keeping everything c...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

OK, I have dragged the laptop into the lounge and am sitting typing with one hand and holding the dummy in George's mouth with the other trying to get him to snooze long enough for me to post a few personals! As always, I'm reading but every time I get read to post something, Sir decides that I need...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Hey ladies, hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your babies or bumps! Just wanted to post a quick message to Katie on the subject of big babies and formula intake! Like you, Katie, at about 8 weeks I was convinced that George wouldn't make it to 17 weeks on milk alone, which is the earliest ...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

OK, so I'm back to needing to apologise again for being so crap and not posting for AGES! Yet again, I can't believe that one little (or not so little!) baby can take up so much time and attention. George is now 13 weeks old and weighing in at 15 lbs 5 oz (yikes, no wonder my shoulders and back are ...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

P.s. I was going to try and compare experiences of a post vaginal birth with you ladies, because I'm not sure that what I've been feeling has been entirely normal, but am I the only one on here so far who hasn't had their baby(ies) by c-section?

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Katie, you'll have to let me know how it goes when you take Ryan out! To answer your question, I think George started to get more co-ordination with his arms and hands at maybe 7-8 weeks, although I haven't been keeping track too closely (bad Mummy...) and it's a gradually changing thing. Thanks for...

Re: Winter Cycle Friends 2009/2010 - Everyone Welcome!

Katie, LOVE the photos of Ryan, he is such a handsome man! I don't have the facility to upload photos from the iPad and never seem to get the chance to go on the main laptop these days, but I've put a fair few photos of George on Facebook if you're interested. Joya & Flynn are really good with Georg...
