It comes after Nikki revealed in September that she was 'excited and petrified' when they started IVF again yet needed to self-isolate until she is 28 weeks pregnant. 

On not seeing Nikki, Alex went on: 'I'm also not happy because I don't get to see Nicola. Because she's on such powerful IVF drugs and immune-suppressant drugs to kill the immune system...

'Because we've lost five miscarriages due to her immune system killing the babies.' 

At the time, the IVF blogger described how she has 'always wanted big family' and the couple are hoping to transfer two of their four embryos which raises the possibility of twins.

Speaking to MailOnline about her treatment at Harley Street Fertility Clinic, she said: 'I am excited and petrified which is such an oxymoron but I am. 

'There are no words. I cannot explain it - it is amazing but extremely frightening. I am putting my body through so much and it is so painful - emotionally and physically.'  

Nikki, who has a high number of natural killer cells that causes her body to 'fight pregnancy like an infection', must undergo intralipid drips to bring down the cells. 

Therefore the blogger is forced to self-isolate for five months, up until she is 28 weeks pregnant, due to the immune-suppressing nature of the medication.

She said: 'I have to self-isolate on my own I can see friends and family from a distance but I have to wear a visor and a mask - I can't even go to the supermarket or see Alex.

'All of the different scans go on until November to prepare my body for becoming a mum and bringing down my natural killer cells - which is what they believed made me miscarry and without them diagnosing that I would miscarry again.

'It has taken many many years to find a reason why and I pray to God this is why.'  

Yet Nikki described how she is trying to 'keep as numb as possible' in order to 'protect' herself after her previous cycles have resulted in devastating heartbreak.

She said: 'It is excitement versus reality when it comes to IVF - I am trying to keep as numb as possible. I am trying to protect myself. 

'Every time I have got excited and passed every hurdle and got pregnant we have had the scans and seen the heartbeat and everything has gone perfect and then it doesn't. 

'I am literally taking tomorrow as it comes because mentally I think I wouldn't be able to cope.'
