Hi LateBloom,

I have been struggling with morning sickness since week 9 and on wk 12 now. Has your Dr prescribed you Zofran? I see you are recommending on your post but my Dr said that this is not recommended to take during pregnancy. I am a bit confused.

    @Mac78 It wasn't my GP/doctor who prescribed Zofran, it was my ObGyn Consultant who is also Master of the large maternity hospital that I am attending. He is a specialist in high-risk pregnancies as mine is, and he is absolutely confident in prescribing Zofran. I'm 18 weeks now and all my scans have been perfect so far with no foetal issues at all. Many GPs are reluctant to prescribe any type of morning sickness medication, but the maternity hospital consultants are much more aware of up-to-date reviews and guidance policies regarding medication - it's their specialist subject!! If you have any doubts at all, please don't use Dr. Google - ask your maternity consultant for advice. Zofran was an absolute game changer for me and allowed me to continue working instead of lying in bed feeling so sick!! Wishing you every good luck with your journey x

    Hi LateBloom,

    Thank you for your answer. It wasn't my GP Dr it was my Dr that I am doing my IVF treatment. I am glad to hear all you are scan have been perfect ^pray^. I am not having to work right now (furlough), so I am dealing with morning sickness without any medication. I am glad to hear it didn't cause any issue to you but I would not risk, not because of Dr Google but because is not recommended by other Doctors.

    Sending baby dusty your way ^hugme^

    Hi @thereismore, all going well thanks, 20 weeks now!!! Had big anomaly scan this week and all was very good. Consultant very happy with all that he saw. I've started to tell family and close friends, and their reactions have been very heartwarming and uplifting in these surreal times. Family who have know about my 10 year journey are thrilled, and friends who had no idea are very shocked and thrilled - their kids are all leaving school and heading to college, so it's been fairly comical seeing their reactions!! Lots of tears and laughter, and it has been so lovely to spread some joy in these troubled times. Baby is moving a good bit which is a very nutty experience!! I'm slowly relaxing into enjoying at all...still a little apprehensive but that's only natural after 10 years of disappointments. Covid lockdown has been a blessing as I've been able to be calm and quiet and unstressed, and taking care of my cocooning parents has been an eye-opening role-reversal!!! All in all, I'm a very very lucky 52-year-old geriatric pregnant lady 😁 How are your plans coming along? Are the clinics opening up again for treatment?? Fingers crossed that all your plans can start moving again. How is your couch-to-5k coming along?? I'm full of admiration as I couldn't run to catch a bus!!! X

    @LateBloom that is truly wonderful news, and it's about time you get to relax into the pregnancy and enjoy it. Aren't those little movements just magical?!
    I love that you're enjoying the diverse reactions from people.
    Still no news on our side. But here's to hoping that by the time your little one is born we might have news of our own.
    Couch to 5k got temporarily derailed by a little knee injury on my right knee, and crazy amount of work coming through. Hope to get back on track tomorrow.
    Which country are you from BTW? I keep assuming people are from the UK which of course is not so.

    Nice to catch up after a while since I last posted, been in hospital again and the times are getting closer again!  Still no news on the clinic referred to a year agao now for treatment for trauma related issues which manifest themselves physically - long story folks wont go there but frightening at times!  Well as with some of you I am on hold, cant get tests done or treatment so I'm getting older each day and no closer which is worrying me but same as everyone else I guess, just I am that bit older than most! Lastg I heard from Giselle was confirmation of what I need to get done and that they were looking forward to starting programmes again post covid, cant see it being for a while but could be wrong.

    Latebloom glad to read your progress and look foward to hearing about your scan at 20 weeks!
    Tanda how arey you doing, sending you huge hugs!
    Thereismore - like you eating too many calories so need to get a grip today to lose weight and tone up! xx

    Love to you all and keep going Olga xx

    Latebloom, awesome news, glad everything is going well !
    Olgakorbut apparently theyíre starting up treatment next month, well I know someone from the uk thatís going for transfer on 15 July so things are moving forward from their end. Unfortunately for me, our borders are still shut and no sign of them opening any time soon, so Iím just waiting here as well, very frustrating !

    I've just had a call with Repromedica. Looks like I'll go for tests and first app in July with transfer towards end of Aug.
    Still have to decide whether we adopt 1 or 2 embryos. The cost for 2 is double the cost for 1.
    At least we can start planning again now
