I have been stalling in writing to you, only because I could not quite fully comprehend the tremendous fortune we have been blessed with. My mind simply did not know how to embrace this news. It took months before I started to slowly consider what was really happening...
Yesterday I had my 21 week ultrasound and I received confirmation again that twins will be joining us soon in our lives. I cannot thank you enough for the advice you gave me to go with the donor we did. You were absolutely right and I had been led astray by the tall, lean body type of the other donor (completely the opposite of my petite frame!) I haven't doubted or hesitated even for an instance over our final choice. She is absolutely the right one and the only one we could have chosen. You told me that April 11th was an incredibly lucky time for us fertility-wise and thanks to the grace of our donor and her incredible flexibility with timing, on April 12th, they transferred two perfect, fresh embryos.
During my initial reading with you, you mentioned that I had endometriosis. No doctor was able to diagnose this or treat me for this for the years that I suffered from it. Only when I had a myomectomy several months later did another doctor inform me that he had discovered endometriosis that he had successfully removed it. Another brilliant piece of insight and wisdom from you! Thank you! I wish I had contacted you even before my fertility journey began as you could have made our initial baby making attempts much less painful for me!
I am so ever grateful to you for your wisdom and insight throughout our three year long fertility journey. You were dead on about our fertility window in 2011. Even though it later resulted in a miscarriage, it was the first time I had gotten pregnant since we had been trying over the course of two years. That miscarriage, coupled with your wise advice to try IVF with our own eggs only one additional time, proved to me that donor eggs would be the way to go.
This is still all very perplexing for my 11th house Pluto to comprehend, but I try to each day absorb a small fraction of the miracle that is taking place within me.
I send you my deepest, deepest gratitude for the role you have played in changing my life in the most miraculous way forever.
Do you ever do readings for natal charts or do you focus primarily on fertility. I will be having two new natal charts that I will need to explore in a matter of time...
Just thought I'd send you a quick update. We had a Skype consult in April I think! Your advice was amazing, I did everything you suggested, had a DNC, cleaned out the uterus and removed a 2cm polyp! Obstruction, just as you had noted. Went back to our acupuncturist for acupuncture and herbs. She didn't feel my body was ready for an IVF at the time you had given us but we decided to go ahead anyway. So, this last IVF I got the most eggs I've ever had, 6 and 4 fertilized, 2 were good enough to put back and on day 5, so they had reached blastocyst stage- amazing, hadn't had that before! And we're pregnant! Had our 2nd beta today which was in the thousands! So we are happy and cautiously optimistic about this beautiful gift!
I can't begin to thank you enough. Invaluable advice and such an interesting process. I will keep you posted on our progress. I am going to enjoy everyday of being pregnant!!!
I just wanted to write to thank you for all your help with my charts & to let you know our really exciting news ... I am 13 wks pregnant with twins!! So much of what you predicted in my charts is coming true. In March/April I had the opportunity to take redundancy & given the length of time I had worked for my company, it seemed too good an offer to turn down, so we looked on it as "good luck" rather than bad luck. Two weeks after I finished work, we flew abroad for our planned 4th IVF treatment & had 2, day 5 blastocysts transferred using both an egg & sperm donor this time. We were also lucky enough to be able to freeze a 3rd. In addition, I've been having Intralipid infusions to combat possible natural killer cells.
So all of these things, combined with the "luck" you said I needed, seem to have paid off! As I'm having twins & they will therefore be born early, my likely due date is the end of Dec, which also coincides with when you said both of our charts looked really positive. So fingers, lots of rest & more good luck & hopefully we will have our best Christmas presents ever.
Many thanks again for all your help & support.
Good evening nicola , we just want to provide you with feedback regarding our telephonic consultation with you in 2005. You made a prediction that we were going to have a baby in 2012 and guess what ?????
Ya we are proud parents of baby micahra!
Thanks you and god bless
not sure if you remember me but you did a fertility reading for me last year in early Feb.
I just wanted to let u know that I did have IVF in May - one of the months you gave me and I did get pregnant - with twins! They arrived little bit early but are really well and we are so over the moon to have them.
thank you very much for your help!
Hi Nicola. Happy new year to you! It's been a long time and not sure when I contacted you last but thought you might like to see a few photos of Sam, since you were instrumental in helping him to get here when he did! He is 8 months now and the time is just flying by.
We will be eternally grateful for your knowledge and expertise.
You were so right. We got our positive yesterday, beta was 540 at 12dp3dt. I don’t even know what to say except thank you, it is nothing short of a miracle as we used our OWN gametes this cycle, when we were told to use DE/DS. Unbelievable.
I think that after speaking to you it helped me emotionally to cope with another IVF (our 7th). All I remember you saying is that you “would bet on it” and I thought well then I better start believing it too.
Thanks again for everything, who would have thought we just needed to get the timing right?
Hi Nicola, I hope you're well. I've been meaning to email you for ages to tell you that I'm pregannt, in fact I'm nine months pregnant. The baby's due on the 10 May. We had IVF in August as you suggested and also tried a very new IVF technique which involves screening the eggs for genetic problems and uses ICSI – which you also suggested. Two embryos were put back in and one is still with us.
I hope you're well and thank you for your help with our pregnancy; I feel a beautiful mix of astrology and IVF have worked.
"I had a consultation with Nicky using Skype back in March. At this point, we had been trying for over 2 years, with 2 miscarriages: the second pregnancy only achieved after over 16 months of trying. With nothing medically wrong with either of us, I was baffled and bewildered by why we seemed to struggling so much with our fertility journey. I was hoping Nicky’s insight would provide some of the much-needed answers, in order to give us the strength to go on.
We were considering IVF and, due to other life plans, wanted to try to in June for our first cycle. Nicky advised against this, as there was an eclipse in my charts which didn’t lead to a successful outcome. Instead, she recommended IVF in late August.
Despite her advice, we went ahead with the June IVF cycle, and it failed. I had quite a few complications and problems with that cycle, and in the back of my mind, I could hear Nicky’s advice – and really wished I had taken it.
We then started our 2nd IVF cycle in late August as per her advice and just a few days ago, found out that it was successful!!!
Of course, we are excited – but cautiously so, given our history. I hope to add to this testimonial in about 9 month’s time, with news of a safe delivery!
Many thanks to Nicky and all her advice – it has proved to be one of the most useful recommendations in my quest for a baby thus far."
Well, you're the one person who probably WILL believe this (because nobody else has) -
Beta result at 14dpo = 132.
Which is completely f*&%ing amazing. I'm just blown away.
YOU WERE RIGHT.
Thank you for everything."
Hope you are well.
You were right, I needed to go for laparoscopy before the IVF. I asked my FS to do a laparoscopy before we started the IVF but he insisted that it was not necessary. So we started with the injections on 21 April and we went back for a check up on 30 April. Unfortunately he found a huge cyst and it seems as if its growing on top of my left ovary. I will be going for a laparoscopy on 14 May.
Let me know if anything changes with the reading, we are going to ask him to do the IVF around mid August as you suggested.
My husband and I conceived our first son with our first attempt spontaneously, and besides an operation at 16 weeks gestation to remove cysts on both ovaries which they thought to be malignant (and ended up being benign), the rest of the pregnancy and delivery were uneventful. We then started trying for a second baby in July 2005 and after a year of trying without any success, we consulted with a fertility clinic in Cape Town. My husband was diagnosed with having severe sperm abnormalities and IVF with ICSI was recommended as the only option. We had our first ICSI cycle in December 2006 which failed. Our second cycle in August 2007 worked, but them I miscarried by 7 weeks, which was totally devastating. They then recommended that we tried AI for a couple of months to give ourselves a bit of breather and take the pressure off. So I then embarked on my first AI cycle in October 2007. During this cycle I was advised to contact Nicola, which I duly did.
Nicola told me that the AI would be a waste of time for me and that ICSI was the way to go. She looked at my charts and said that I should do an ICSI cycle immediately after that AI cycle as November was the best month in which I could conceive. I then requested that I change my plan and abandon the plan to do a few more AI cycles in favour of an ICSI cycle in November 2007, which is what I did. It worked!!! Our gorgeous son was born 7 weeks ago on 18th August 2008 and he is absolutely perfect. We are so grateful for the guidance that Nicola gave us at a time when you lose total control over your fertility or destiny and don’t have a clue which way to turn. We have subsequently referred several of our friends to Nicola who are battling with infertility. I’m absolutely thrilled that I took the initiative to get the astrological guidance from Nicola, and dread to think how I could still be battling on my own. The most interesting thing was that she had said to me, that had I consulted with her prior to my second ICSI cycle in August 2007, when I miscarried, she would have advised me not to do so that month, as there was an eclipse in my chart which would put me at risk of a miscarriage! I think she is awesome!
“I was given Nicky’s name by a friend who had success with the advice and timing provided by Nicky. I have had 7 IVF treatments and 4 AI treatments over the past few years and only 1 of them worked. At 41 years of age I didn’t have much time left and the doctor advised that I should consider donor eggs. I was really reluctant so asked Nicky for guidance in terms of when to do another IVF treatment. She gave me some dates – it just meant moving my plans out by a month or so – and it worked first time. I now have two beautiful boys. Nicky was a real pleasure to deal with – she was friendly, understanding and extremely patient as I asked many questions. Friends have been skeptics but after having chatted to Nicky were convinced that she can offer real guidance in terms of the timing. My feeling, whether you believe in her methodology or not, what have you got to lose. Plan your IVF treatment in the month that Nicky advises – if it gives you a better chance of conceiving, why not?” Anonymous
"When you are obsessed and desperate and looking for answers fertility astrology provides much insight. There is so much at risk and the costs are great but more importantly there is only so much one can take emotionally. It is nice not to have to make that decision of ‘when’ is the best time to go for treatment. So did it work for me? Yes, but with a twist. I conceived a Down’s pregnancy and decided to terminate and then to be honest I was not up for any more. The heart ache and pain was just too much and after a few failed attempts prior to this, plus the difficulty of the loss, I had reached my limit. Others soldier on for ages and get positive results in the end, but each of us is different and when one has had to consider a life with a Down’s child, the childless option is attractive. So I have chosen to celebrate what I have in my life and all the things that are good and leave behind the journey that was…. One can lead a very fulfilling life without children; it is just a different life."
