A shiny new thread, seeing as the last one is now pretty much full.

There are a fair few of us old lags who have been in it for the long haul now, but new people are always welcome! Fingers crossed for BFPs for all!

Wow you really weren't wrong about it being dead in here- what a shame!I'm too scared to enter other threads, I felt safe here!!

Ratata Mon 29-Oct-12 19:16:43

That's good about your period fl0b0t you can get trying properly now smile

Sorry I've not been around too much, been feeling up and down and was also away back to my parents for a week for a little holiday. Got to see my 7 month old niece which was great.

Have just finished my fertile time I think, been going at it most days over the last week. Fingers crossed!

How is everyone else?

Hello all, yes sadly other TTC first baby threads seem to have usurped the Frolickers. Even the Frolicker Graduates thread in Ante-Natal seems to have died off.

Many of us have shipped over to the BESH thread, it's been a great source of support for me over the last few months and they're a great bunch of no nonsense ladies. You will not find any "baby dancing" going on over there grin

MissSlapAndTipple Mon 29-Oct-12 21:25:12

oh but I do love a babydance Frankel. Oh no wait - it's a good hard shag in the back of an Aston Martin actually grin baby dust mwah

Fl0b0t the Besh thread is lovely, hope on over.

Sorry you've been feeling low ratata, sounds like you've made a good effort towards this month though so fingers crossed!

MissSlapAndTipple Mon 29-Oct-12 21:25:53

p.s. I was raspberrytipple but name changed for the bond theme on the other thread!

fl0b0t Mon 29-Oct-12 23:07:29

Brilliant... I'm on it... once someone tells me what BESH means!!

MissSlapAndTipple Mon 29-Oct-12 23:15:31

Oh lord I can't remember, come say hello, someone will tell you without delay!

BESH stands for Bitter Evil Selfish Hags. It was taken from a Daily Mail article because, you know, all women who put off having children into their 30s and then have trouble conceiving are just BESH wink

To join you'll need to locate a BESHtionnaire, which is located on older threads. Answer the questions in a numerous manner and the BESH will decide if you are BESH material grin The only rules of BESH Land are that we don't have "DH" or "DP", they all have amusing nicknames, and we refer to Droid, not AF.

Have a read of the thread and you'll get the gist of our sense of humour. We've all been ttc for some time, some with diagnosed issues and some without.

That should have been "answer the questions in a humorous manner" blush

Ratata Sun 04-Nov-12 23:34:20

Aw I don't think I fit in at BESH, it's for the over 30s yeah? I'm late 20s. I'm quite settled in this thread even though it's not always too active. Nice to catch up with folk when they do pop in smile

Well I'm 11dpo I think, did a test, I'm fairly sure it was negative. I thought I could see a hint of a line but was just wishful thinking. There really was nothing there! Testing again tomorrow. I started feeling pregnant today but I think it was possibly just a hangover... Boobs are really sore but they were bad last month before AF. Needless to say I feel a bit confused but will update again soon. This month will mark a year of trying. 1 missed miscarriage, 1 chemical pregnancy, hoping for 3rd time lucky.

Ratata Mon 05-Nov-12 12:59:51

Did another test and it was negative. I am pretty sure I am out this month. Last time I was pregnant I got the positive on 11dpo. I think I'm going to need to take some time away from the Conception board and concentrate on other things. It's just getting more and more heartbreaking as each month passes and as we have now hit the one year mark, I'm just not in a good place right now. Will check back in on you guys at some point x

FrankelDeBeauvoir Mon 05-Nov-12 17:46:07

It's not just for over 30s, though most of us are. I'm sure we'd give you special dispensation wink

I'm currently 10dpo and trying very hard (and failing) not to symptom spot. I'm under instruction from the clinic to test on Sunday (16dpo) if AF hasn't shown up, so I'm holding out till then!

FrankelDeBeauvoir Mon 05-Nov-12 17:47:18

Sorry Ratata, I hit post to soon!

It's totally understandable that you might want to take some time away. This TTC lark can get pretty all consuming. (((Hugs)))

MissSlapAndTipple Mon 05-Nov-12 21:36:27

Oh Ratata I'm sorry to hear you are feeling rubbish. This TTC malarkey really is the pitts sometimes and I thoroughly agree its always good to take a break from the boards if you need it. Most of the time I find them a tremendous support but sometimes when it gets to much I just need to remove myself from anything TTC like.

BESHes are lovely. I snuck in and I'm 29 until just before Christmas and there are a couple of other late 20's gals in there but I'll always be around on this one, I won't be abandoning it after over 2 years smile

Frankel I'm 11 DPO and have sore boobs and feel tired/sicky. Now, my brain logically tells me that this is what I get every month and of course I'm not pg but my emotional side is saying 'well we had sex at the perfect time, this might be our month'. FFS why am I doing this to myself

Ratata Fri 09-Nov-12 19:36:12

Ok so... Been testing with Internet cheapies for the last few days. BFN everytime. I'm 3 days late today. So went down the shops and got a First Response. BFP!!!!!!!! We are so happy. Fingers crossed for a third time lucky sticky bean. I will linger around and not say goodbye just yet in case things don't go to plan. I hope you all have lucky months and thank you for your support xxx

MissSlapAndTipple Sun 11-Nov-12 18:12:01

OMG ratata, completely missed this! Congratulations, that's wonderful news. Keeping everything crossed for a very run of the mill pregnancy for you!! xxx

Ratata Sun 11-Nov-12 21:23:50

Thanks smile I will pop in and update once we have the early scan which will be a couple of weeks before Christmas xx

fl0b0t Mon 12-Nov-12 19:41:53

Absolutely bloody brilliant Ratata!

Ratata Mon 12-Nov-12 19:46:39

Thanks fl0b0t I'm really excited smile and worried lol

MissSlapAndTipple Mon 12-Nov-12 21:44:26
