Hey! It's An Embarassing Question!

It's not like this isn't a question that I couldn't ask Dr. Bow Tie Guy. The man who encouraged me to talk to my husband's willy before engaging in "Plan B". He's not exactly shy. But what the hell, I'm going to ask you ladies instead. Although I've found many answers on many different forums, I can't seem to find anything definitive on the matter. But I HAVE learned rather a lot about dildos in the process.

Right:

If you've had a previous history of miscarriage, do you have to lay off the good stuff for 9 months?

My inability to make up my own mind on this subject probably comes from an inability to see this as a "normal" pregnancy, even, if for all intents and purposes, it is so far.

So, how about it, girls. No big O until the kid shows?

Well, i have no idea...but for your sake...i sure hope so.

actually...i think your doctor would tell you if you couldn't.

call and ask...b./c no matter who tells you what...you won't believe it unless is comes from your doc's mouth.

i hope so.

I just finished reading "Preventing Miscarriage, The Good News" as I prepare to go ahead and try and get pregnant again after my first miscarriage. I thought this was a well researched and written book and it mentions that no sex in the first trimester might be a good idea for women who have recurrent miscarriages, but the reason given is infections, etc. coming in on the sperm and doesn't have anything to do with orgasm. Nothing was said in the book about no sex for nine months. Best of luck to you...I just found your blog and am getting caught up now.

Hello,
I don't know where you are in the UK, but I was going to send you an e-mail with the link to the private clinic where I am having a nuchal fold scan. It has been highly reccomended by three former patients, two of whom who were referred there by the staff at their NHS hospitals (who said - their test is more accurate and faster, so you might just like to go private and pay). I had a fetal viability scan there this week, and was given a 3d picture to take home.
I hope all is well,
K.

Oh yes, the clinic also does same day CVS if you are found to be high risk, apparently with quick results back.

Katty,

I actually did have the nuchal fold scan done at a private facility. Since the beginning of this pregnancy, I've been seeing a specialist there that I like a lot. I've been refered to a natal specialist at The John Radcliffe in Oxford for a level 2 ultrasound in the next few weeks, so we'll see what we can determine from that.

I'm probably a little far along for a CVS; by the time I see this specialist, I'll be 16 weeks, so if I wanted any more info after the scan, I'd have to go for an amnio, which I'm really not keen on since I've had two miscarriages already. We'll just have to wait and see!
