Shagged Out Viroids 6th Thread! From Early Days to Ready To Pop - Proof that JSing really does work!

Hello and welcome to another shiny fred for Just Shagging graduates!

The last fred was nice and busy so fingers crossed we get lots more members grin

We've just moved over from the Shagged Out Viroids Volume 5 thread, where we finally found out that a 'viroid' is from the original JSing thread 1, where someone was trying to type ladies (in reference to all the JSing ladies), but their phone decided to call us all viroids instead!
The name stuck and we've been the JSing viroids ever since.

Our stats thread is here, so if you find us, please add your stats too.

There is also a Just Mumming thread for grads of the grads thread confused grin

And if you want to find out what Just Shagging is about or catch up with the undergrads go say hello to the Just Shaggers here, now on the 12th thread thanks

grin hooya definitely not just you....we've only managed 3 times since new year as I can't stay awake past 9pm, but I would say everything is definitely more sensitive down there atm! Not sure if DH would agree though - he gets told off every time he even thinks about going near my boobs haha!

frogchops Sat 02-Feb-13 20:34:28

No shagging since jan 7 here, a week before bfp. blush I haven't really felt like it (altho not necessarily off it) and DP hhasn't mentioned it. Feel a bit bad now I think how long that is.
I do remember DP saying he'd be scared to if I was upduffed, altho he knows there's issues. He's really quite protective at the mo though... Maybe I'll wait til he brings it up (literally!blushgrin)

frogchops Sat 02-Feb-13 20:35:19

*he knows there's NO issues. Stupid phone.

WingDefence Netherlands Sat 02-Feb-13 22:10:38

We must have JSed perhaps 5/6 times since I got the BFP back at the start of August?! I just don't have the libido for it and now the baby is so active it can only happen when 1) I'm in the mood and 2) MiniWing is asleep as it'd be FAR too weird otherwise blush

Poor DH. We did have two good bonks when we were away in Liverpool (hurrah) but he didn't even get anything from me on his birthday two weeks ago sad

Dysgu Sat 02-Feb-13 22:13:25

Very little JSing been happening here throughout this PG - I am sure DP feels it more than me (but we cope 'in other ways') grin but what with being high risk and then having daily hormone pessaries, we have been particularly 'careful' this time round!

StuckOnARollercoaster Sun 03-Feb-13 16:09:03

Hello all - getting hard to keep up with everyone smile

Something - hope your care gets sorted out
And that ladies feeling sick will start to feel better soon.

Strangely I'm not feeling very pregnant anymore but at the same time I don't think there's a cause for concern, as I have a clear pg bump and can fall asleep anywhere if I shut my eyes. I should be feeling the baby by now (22 weeks) but because the placenta's at the front I'm getting nothing - will check at midwife appointment this week and hopefully she can reassure me.
Also my work has been crazy busy so I've not really had time to sit and symptom spot. I was away with work, so as soon as the day was over I was in the hotel and rather than socialise with colleagues I had room service and was asleep by 9pm!

Slightly embarassed here - but since second trimester we are back to JS'ing! Maybe not quite as often - 1 or 2 a week and we're a bit more restricted on positions. DP won't put his weight on me anymore and there are certain stretchy positions I don't like anymore. I find its such a good release that now I don't feel so sick I want it as much as before - if I haven't fallen asleep already! Am going for it now in case it dwindles when we have a crying baby to deal with!!!

Got to go - am being called out for a drive to Rochdale for another one of DP's ebay purchases - quite a regular occurance in our household!!!

MrsBri Sun 03-Feb-13 16:38:12

I've only JS'd once since my BFP, on the morning after the wedding, so we've at least consumated the marriage, ha ha! I'm not really interested, sadly. And even though I've had no issues, I'm still cautious. Maybe after we've got to viability?

I do, ummm, provide sympathy BJs very regularly though, as I couldn't leave DH with nothing going on! I'm becoming rather proficient :-)

He keeps joking that at some point this year we will have sex! Poor bloke. :-/

Dysgu Sun 03-Feb-13 18:28:13

Gosh, we must not let your DH and my DP compare notes, MrsBri as they will form a support group! What with counting the weeks of PG, it means I know I would not run out of fingers on one hand if we were to count the number of times we had actually DTD!

We have to 'get by' with other methods - it is not even that I am always too tired or not interested, but we are unsure if sex will/would/can/could affect the success of the hormone pessaries I have to use so we have both agreed to err on the side of caution. The times we have DTD, we have continued to use condoms - which seems a real shame (especially for DP) as this is the perfect time to have unprotected sex! Still, we both know it is better for the baby to stay in as long as possible to this is the 'sacrifice' we make!

WingDefence Netherlands Sun 03-Feb-13 22:35:12

I do feel sorry for my DH - no BJs even from me blush

I've had a mixed day. DS woke up v unusually just before 6(!) and I didn't get back off to sleep really apart from dozing until DH and DS got up just before 7. I didn't get up till 7:45 but was in a FOUL hormonal/tired mood (I do not take being woken up early well at all) so had a go at DS, a massive meltdown at DH, went to bed sobbing, DH took DS to church even though I was meant to be leading worship this morning (DH and I are both in the worship group) and I dozed on and off till they got back at 1.

I did feel better after that and we were kindly invited over to our friends/neighbour's house for lunch so had a nice relaxed afternoon over there.
Even though DS told everyone round the lunch table "mummy was crying this morning. She was going WAA WAA WAA" shock hmm

DH got the carry cot and bags and bags of baby clothes down from the loft this morning. I just picked out the top baby body from one of the bags and it's teeny! Really bringing it home now grin

Just had my 37 week scan baby is estimated at 6lb 15oz today. Waiting to see a dr to find out the plan

ICompletelyKnowAboutGuineaPigs Mon 04-Feb-13 16:11:41

When I first read your post Wing I thought 'where else would he get them from?' then I realised what you meant! grin Glad your day improved yesterday - we've all been there.

I didn't get to bed until 2am as I was trying to finish my marking to hand in to the second marker today. Technically it doesn't have to be in until tomorrow, but I work from home on Tuesdays and getting to Uni and parking is such a hassle I figured it was worth the lack of sleep to get it done last night. I WAS NOT thinking that this morning as my alarm went off! But I handed it in today and it is all done and dusted - no more marking until after maternity leave - hurrah! Might have a celebratory wine and watch Call the Midwife in the bath tonight.

Glad your scan went well Something. I've got my extra scan tomorrow to check for polyhydramnios. I am so hoping everything looks normal - I feel massive though so really not sure which way it's going to go.

I did lots of baby clothes wshing the other day and the clothes looked so dinky! A friend lent me a moses basket and I can't wait until there is a baby to put in it if she will actually lie in it it will be a miracle though

Right, must get some sandwiches ready to take to DCs swimming lessons.

tiredteddy Mon 04-Feb-13 16:32:00

That's a good weight something are you feeling ok about having a c section? Not long at all until you meet your baby.

guinea yay for no more marking. Washing tiny baby things is lush isn't it!

WingDefence Netherlands Mon 04-Feb-13 16:41:14

Ooh something let us know the latest when you've seen the Dr.

Well done on the marking Guinea! I've just got my latest draft doc to my bosses so no late nights hopefully this week. Any amendments now should be relatively small <fingers crossed>

I have pretty much decided to start ML on 15th March which is less than 6 weeks away! Eek! grin I was thinking of pushing it back to the 22nd because I'm not communiting or anything but DS finishes for the Easter hols that day so I won't have any time to myself from then on whereas if I finish on the 15th I'll have a week to go shopping and sit in Starbucks nest and as I've worked my bump off these past few months I don't feel like I owe work any more of my time!

We borrowed a moses basket last time (bought a stand which we still have) and hope to borrow one again this time. Otherwise they tend to go really cheaply on eBay under local pick-up.

tiredteddy Mon 04-Feb-13 16:47:55

Good plan for ML wing a week to yourself for daytime naps will be well deserved! Enjoy that time to nest it's special to fry a chance to think about your baby when you already have dc as you end up focused on the older dc of course and what they need.

My section is booked...for 39+6! Dr refused before 39 weeks and 39+6 is the only date they had. Need to go into labour! Ideas people?

Kittenkatzen Mon 04-Feb-13 19:04:46

Eek something so exciting! Get yourself out for a long uphill walk, come home to a massive vindaloo followed by a big bowl of fresh pineapple, washed down with gallons of raspberry leaf tea, then jump OH for a shagathon grin

MrsBri Mon 04-Feb-13 19:16:05

And find a very bumpy road to drive along! :-)

Dysgu Mon 04-Feb-13 20:15:58

I saw the MW today and am exactly borderline for Gestational Diabetes. There was no flag on the screen and no one had contacted me so her initial thought was that they had decided to just leave it and see if any other markers came up. There was no glucose in my wee and the other MW who was there, they often work in pairs, said it must be fine.

However, MW1 - who has been my MW through DD1 and DD2 - decided to call the diabetes clinic there and then because of the likelihood of DC3 coming early like my other two.

So that changed everything - now they are referring me to the diabetes clinic and I will get a call tomorrow to set up an appointment. The I will have to see the consultant - again, as I am already high risk with my spontaneous preemies - and then they will refer me to a dietician to go through foods to eat and avoid etc.

Then we will have a chat about when I could start expressing - MW2 thought probably about 36 weeks.

Then we were discussing the likelihood that they will not want me to go to term and will look to induce at around 38 weeks.

MW1 found this rather funny - as though I will still be carrying this DC at 36 weeks, yet alone 38! I did say that surely it was possible and she said that, of course, it was possible, but realistically it is very unlikely. I am now seeing the MW every 2 weeks and will have extra scans until DC puts in an appearance.

A quick bit of research with Dr Google seems to show that the increased hormones is likely to be the cause of GD, especially oestrogen and progesterone. And of course, I am 'taking' daily progesterone pessaries in a research project to try to avoid premature delivery. Looks like a rock and a hard place

Still, only 14 work days to go and 3 of them should be at home and 1 is an INSET day. And then there looks like being more time off for antenatal appointments....

I hope the clinic goes well for you. My friend had her GD baby at 38 weeks weighing 6lb 2oz not 10lb+ like scans said.

Hopefully the consultant can offer you advice and a plan?

Tmi but im very proud to report ive lost some plug!

Dysgu Mon 04-Feb-13 22:57:51

That sounds positive something - hopefully you will go into labour in the next week - fingers crossed.

Rockchick1984 Tue 05-Feb-13 09:54:32

Hello all, just poking my head in quietly to say I got my BFP this morning smile Not sure I'm ready to graduate up to here yet as I'm less than 4 weeks pregnant but having been a JSer for way too long, I wanted to say a quick hello to you all and keep your fingers crossed for me that I'm brewing a sticky baby smile

ICompletelyKnowAboutGuineaPigs Tue 05-Feb-13 10:03:14

Welcome welcome Rockchick - fingers crossed you'll be joining us properly soon. Congratulations btw!

Remind me Something how many weeks are you at the moment? Also can't remember why you have to deliver early/have a c/section?

Just waiting for my scan and have treated myself to some mini muffins from Costa and I'm desperate to eat them. The scanner seems quite stern and so I feel like I'll be in trouble if I have a sugar-rush wriggly baby!

37 weeke today! Ive got a section booked due to previous section was meant to be for 39-39+3 but the only date they had was 39+6!

If i go into labour before my section date then i will vbac but emcs if needed

frogchops Tue 05-Feb-13 11:13:01

Welcome rock! (Everyone plump up the cushions for rock, she's long overdue in here!)
