Hello ladies I have luckily had one successful treatment after 4 failures and brown bleeding was a good sign for me, so don't panic and just continue to take it easy - it should be good news! I had red bleeding too as did a lot of my cycle buddies who also got a BFP so bleeding doesn't always mean s...

Thank you, will take a look there - didn't know if there was a new WOW vitamin that worked miracles...literally!

I will hopefully be starting treatment the end of this/next month so will look out for your posts, all the very very best of luck.

Hi

I would highly recommend accupuncture, I did on my last treatment and it worked! Now the very proud mummy of a 3 year old, and going for tmt again, and will be doing acupuncture again too! I used to fall asleep and totally zonk out during it - can't be bad?!

Good luck!

What Vitamins/Supplements should I be taking?

Hello! I am hoping to start my 6th treatment next month, will find out for sure when we see Sam at the Lister on Tuesday. I have stocked up on Pregnacare, but what other supplements/vitamins are now recommended? I think I took Selenium and Zinc last time (as did DH) but are there any more proven goo...

I too have a beautiful 9 month old to show for my treatment at the Lister. I found them to be really helpful and professional and would go there again if we were to have another treatment. I was with another clinic for my first 4 attempts (non of which worked), and it was my first treatment at the L...

Wendy I know how hard it is, but please try and stay as calm as you can and rest, rest, rest. I had exactly the same, about the same time too, and they didn't know what was causing the bleeding, it turned out a lot later down the line that 2 of my eggs had embedded, but only one lasted, and the blee...

As the others have said, PLEASE PLEASE do not panic, I bled before test day, and from week 7-14 and am a Mummy to 20 week old Megan, so don't fear the worst. Mine ranged from brown/red spotting, to heavier bleeding, so all I did was rest up, drank lots, and I even went to a chinese herbalist and got...

Hi

I used baby aspirin on my 5th and last tmt, and am now a very proud Mummy to 20 week old Megan, so I say go for it. My clinic was of the opinion to take it if you want to, so I did!

Good luck each and every one of you.

Morning Dagny I DID have implantation bleeding, and threw myself into a right old panic, but others who were cycling with me also had some while others had none, so there is no right or wrong, as ever with this whole IVF stuff. Hope you are OK and look forward to seeing your news. I haven't been on ...

Megan's room was also really warm last night, so I too leave a window open, and she is also in a gro-bag, which I agree are fantastic. She's in a lightweight one at the moment, and I didn't put a vest under her sleepsuit last night either, to ensure she doesn't overheat. I get really paranoid about ...

I have a beautiful baby daughter (7 weeks old!) following blastocyst treatment at the Lister, and can't recommend them enough. It was my fifth go at it altogether, but my first attempt at the Lister, under Sam, who is lovely. All the nurses, docs, scanners etc were lovely and made a traumatic experi...
