So sorry about the disappointing results. Ubiquinol takes a minimum of three months before you start to see the effects so I think it's just a matter of waiting to see the results of all your hard work. It's hard to be patient but it will be worth it if you catch the magic egg.

Hello Briss - just stopping by to say hi. Lovely to see you on here again but so sorry for your struggles. We've been trying naturally for a long time for number 2 but not happening. I am slowly accepting we will be a family of 3. I don't want to go down the IVF route ...

Thinking of you! Xxx

Hey Blythe! Yes I'm well. Daughter is 3 now!!! Yes still practicing but thinking of going back to accounting . Mainly because it is more certain income and more reliable hours. I'll probably do that when my girl starts school next September.

How are you getting on with your two kids? I hope you are well. Miss the acupuncture thread now :-)

Sorry for hijacking your thread briss

Pixie, so happy to hear from you! and you are pregnant!! congratulations! I just started reading your blog and I am so sorry for all the losses you have had recently, you have so much to give, can't believe you were ready to give up on motherhood for the sake of your partner, you deserve somebody wonderful! wishing you uneventful pregnancy and easy birth and a healthy beautiful baby! are you going to find out the sex of your baby? I wonder if anyone else from CBFM buddy is still trying? it's funny but despite going IVf route in the end it was CBFM that made it happen for me.

Jazzbird, your daughter is 3 already!! wow how time flies I know what you mean about gradually accepting a family of 3, I feel very tired and discouraged by my constant failures so not sure how long I have it in me to carry on. going back to accounting? I was wondering how your act practice was doing. but i imagine it's difficult when income is unpredictable. I do not work at the moment and not having a constant income is starting to bite considering all the IVF expenses. I really hope you will get lucky naturally soon though Do you still take any chinese herbs?

Blythe, how are you? I meant to write to you but there is so much to tell i just can't find it in me to put it all in writing... been going from bad to worse recently with getting immature eggs cycle after cycle and ended up having complete hormonal mess with cycles going for 17-19 days and 8 day LP and ovulations on day 6 had to have a break from natural IVF. am ovulating today but did not go to Munich this time, it's day 11 and the first time i have a normal day ovulation so still need to see what my LP is like. but also i keep thinking what's the point... I had what 8-10 collections so far and only 2 that went to transfer and no BFps. this can't be good.

on top of that my DD has severe tooth decay and needing 10 teeth treated under general anaesthetic we have seen at least 5 dentists and they blame BF and raisins i can't believe this. they all urge me to stop BF immediately. I really struggle to accept this and simply can't go through with the GA thing....

CaliDreaming, thank you I really hope things will improve soon.

I can't believe dentists of all people would blame your daughter's woes on breastfeeding and raisins. That is total crap! I hope you hold firm and stop breastfeeding only when you feel it's best. If you listen to these dentists, they will have you quit and your daughter will still have dental problems.

There are many things that contribute to tooth decay, not just what you eat or how well you can brush teeth. Some people have the bacteria that causes and different people have varying degrees of defenses against the bacteria. So there is a strongly genetic component to it.

CaliDreaming, thanks! I also find it really strange that so many children are BFed until thy are much older and eat sugar and fruit juices and are not very diligent in brushing and seem to be OK. There must be something else. My DD had to take AB that's when i noticed the decay actually, but everyone seems to think it's not related. I also agree with you that genetics has a lot to do with it, my teeth are bad and DH's are perfect. it's also possible that i passed her some of these bad bacterial by sharing spoons which is unfortunately something i did when i tried to encourage her eating by example. I have no definitive answer as to why this happened but what worries me is what to do now? DH and I keep arguing cos he thinks we need to urgently fix what's possible as her teeth are breaking into pieces but going through with GA also means she is more likely to lose some teeth that are beyond saving. I personally feel we should just do nothing except to have a very strict routine and no sugar exact for milk and fruit.

It's just amazing how when you give birth everything is set up to encourage BF on demand and discourage bottles and I did exactly that and turns out I ruined her teeth I do not mind stopping BF but it's not easy. all children are different and my DD seems to rely on it a lot. She cries really bad at night if she can't find breast immediately so we ended up bed sharing as this was the only way for me to get any sleep. I can count on one hand the number of night i managed to have uninterrupted sleep, basically not more 3. normally i sleep 1-4 hours between feeds. dentists seem to think that's the main issue is DD has sugar from milk in her mouth the entire night. but i did read somewhere that BF on demand children have more saliva during the night before they feed often and that should clear the teeth. i don't know but it's very distressing. no one would treat her without GA until she is 3-4 years by which time who knows how whether any of her teeth can be saved.

That really is a tough situation to be in. I hope that you are able to save your baby's teeth.

Please don't blame yourself for this as this is in no way your fault and breastfeeding was a good thing for your child. It really does seem that your girl does not seem ready to let go of breastfeeding and I'd be reluctant to stop it even with her dental problems. I think the breastfeeding is just a convenient scapegoat in this case. We all know for firsthand experience that medical professionals often latch on to the "easy" answer even if it's not the "right" answer.

So many women do the same thing as you do and their children don't have the same problems as yours so there must be some other reason.

Yes briss, I can’t believe it sometimes as I’ve had no major symptoms, no sickness nothing, I have to look at scan picture to remind myself baby’s there

Have a little bump now(in my mind anyway) everyone is telling me I’m massive already, but can’t see it myself

That’s bad about BF and there has to be other things involved also to be that bad,
but surely it will only be baby teeth she loses and adult teeth will come through eventually? Or not the case? I don’t know about these things really
