Chocolate after FET

Having a panic - I had a FET on the 10th April and have just eaten quite a lot of chocolate (easter clearly a bad time to do ivf cycle). I am in the 2ww and worried that the caffeine in the choclate could affect the outcome - has anyone been advised not to eat chocolate? I've just read in Zita West ...

Quita, Congratulations!! and you are so right. Whenever I have a vaguely bad day I am just so thankful that we have our little girl. I don't know whether it makes the sleepless nights, endless feeding and mastitis (3 times!) any more bearable as I haven't tried them without having gone through IVF, ...

Sha, I was also at my in laws but clearly by the end of the meal they were all fairly merry as there were no complaints about the dinner table feeding (I did start to head off to the sitting room but they told me to sit down!) and quite frankly I do find sitting in an empty room feeding very dull! I...

Hello everyone!! Congratulations Miss Piggy, Mrs B and Sha - can you believe it?!!! We've also had a baby girl, in fact it was on the 20th November, the last time I was on this website - I was in fact in labour when I wrote the message at 5.30 am I just didn't know it. We went in for the scheduled c...

Sha, thats so exciting! If the head's engaged then it must surely be the head, don't think the bottom can manage to squish down that far. I'm seeing the consultant today, I guess the baby's still breech after last week's scan so we'll see what he says. Also the ultrasound nurse was concerned about t...

Miss Piggy, thanks I'll try it!!
Course is hideous, thoroughly stressed and haven't had time to sort out any baby gubbins - am working til 12 at night and up again at 6 - luckily only two weeks to go and hopefully the baby won't arrive until at least a week after that.
How are you doing?

Ihad the m'wife appointment first and she saw my notes then felt the baby and said,, 'great its moved its now head down', I said are you sure because I haven't felt it c...

Hello! Sha, I have a m'wife appnt this wed and a scan and am then seeing the consultant next Tues when I'll be 35 wks (was supposed to book for 36weeks but decided that 35 was late enough!) It feels as though the baby is still in the same position but I guess I'll know for sure on Wed. Can not belie...

Denise, its fantastic that they're doing so well!! They look adorable! I can't believe they can go home already, I'm sure it must feel like the longest time to you, but it seems just amazing. The care for premature babies is fantastic, it is heartening to see them thrive so well.

Mrs B, I agree with Miss Piggy, C sections are utterly routine these days and nothing to worry about at all. Why did he say this was more of a risk in your case? You're young and healthy and happen to have a breech baby - to me that seems like the most usual reason and best case for a section. Bette...

Hello everyone, Sorry not to have been on much in the last couple of weeks, we had a scare last week with a bleed and I spent the weekend in the hopsital being monitored. They can't tell what the bleed was (wasn't much but enough to freak me out!) most likely the placenta, but they monitored the bab...

Sha, I had my appointment with the GP last night and the baby is still in the hammock position, bottom down. As far as I can tell it hasn't moved from that in the last 5 weeks or so. As long as its happy and not too squashed then thats fine by me! Still it does seem to me that if it hasn't moved out...

Denise, CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Thats So exciting! I can't believe you've had your babies! I seem to think I'm still somewhere around the 20wk mark. Can't believe that I could have a baby within the next two months! (and WILL have one within the next three!!) 30 wks today! Do you know when they're likel...

Sha, that's good news that you're seeing a consultant and they're monitoring you. Definitely worth it for the peace of mind! I saw the consultant again on Tues and he said that he didn't want to see me again until 36 weeks, but reiterated that there was a risk of transverse or breach lie and said th...
