<sits I'm the corner muttering, it was not like this in my day, we fought in the war for all this>

<marking place ready for abundance of BFPs!>

Sending lots of no brooking vibes to Sweetie's follies!

Also great news Barlett that must be very reassuring.

Lots of love and luck to all the rat smackers! Xxx

well actually I wouldn't want 11 children grin

BeedleTheBard Fri 07-Sep-12 11:20:51

solars I can't really say that I have any symptoms to report, my boobs are sore but they usually are at this point.

Not that I'm actually sure how many dpo I am, (I'm trying to relax - ha ha) but AF is due on Wednesday, same day as our appointment. We're both taking the whole day off, partly as its easier to take a whole day than explain why I'll be away for about 3 hours in the middle of the day, and partly (for me) in case its bad news for DP (he's convinced it will be), I'd rather be with him for the afternoon, even though he won't want to talk about it hmm

<Dresses DD up and gives her pom poms>
<Attempts to dress self appropriately but gives up so just grabs pom poms instead>

What do we want?

Positive pee sticks

When do we want them?

Now!

ScarlettInSpace Fri 07-Sep-12 11:31:34

<is concerned to see rubber using her DD as a pom pom and suggests not rushing in future where pom poms & small children are involved>

boo it used to give me hot flushes and make my face beetroot red til I persevered and developed a tolerance grin

Gosh that’s all happened very quickly sweetie - good luck smile
I’m 36 weeks tomorrow, so at the very most I have 6 weeks left shock

Fluffamazing only 6 weeks max to go, next few weeks of rest & relaxation - that had flown by, am sure you may feel differently though wink

ScarlettInSpace Fri 07-Sep-12 12:02:53

It seems like only yesterday fluffy had a little kernal... Now it's a full on baby! That has flown!

Geeklette Fri 07-Sep-12 12:16:03

Go fluff!!! Where have those weeks gone? shock

Just got my AMH results, 49.1. Eek! sad Poss symptom of PCOD but ultrasound showed ovaries all normal. Been referred to fertility specialist (huh? I thought my consultant was one!) for further investigation.

Sorry to me-post and run, it's taken me half an hour to type this on my phone!

Brooking vibes and warm crisp sandwiches to everyone grin

Geeklette Fri 07-Sep-12 12:21:36

PS AF showed up last Tuesday so I found her in contempt of court, clapped her in irons and sent her down for life. That should keep her out of our hair for a bit!

Geek sorry to hear AF got you but I think you dealt with her in a most appropriate manner. Isn't that a good result for AMH? Thought optimal fertility was 28 - 50 for AMH. I might be wrong as only going on what Dr Google says.

Geeklette Fri 07-Sep-12 12:38:45

Apparently anything over 48 is considered high, but given my age (I'm just four years away from when my mum started her menopause) the consultant has described it as 'very high for local assay' whatever that means and recommended the fertility expert he has referred me to considers a short course of some drug whose name I didn't catch and further scans. Hopefully know more on Monday as I have my 'Intro to IVF' 2 hr appointment. Would explain why I had three LH surges last cycle though.

K, break over, back into court for me!

It has gone very quickly indeed - despite the fact I'm very uncomfortable now, I'm not ready for it to be over yet! Baby is under orders to stay put until October grin

Good luck geek smile

<runs around in circles waving arms madly in the air screaming "I'm free! No more jury service!!!">

Firstly, a very big welcome to snow and cru who I have so rudely not welcomed yet. My apologies, I have been rather distracted of late.

Secondly, a huge thank you to scarlett for starting this fabby new fred which will be our home for the next four weeks or so, and will see us all gain our bright shiny new BFPs. I hope your DH's mood improves pronto. I'm sorry you've been feeling so sick, but that trick about eating first is a handy one to be aware of. I shall bear that in mind when I start my drugs.

keep it is so lovely to see you in such a positive frame of mind. Thailand obviously agrees with you! I am glad you have got a plan sorted out for yourselves, it all sounds very workable and you will have your BFP in the bag before you know it.

Amazing news on the munx front, it is always a joy to hear a brooking success story. Sometimes I feel I've been TTC so long I've lost sight of what it might mean to have a baby, because I am so damn focussed on just getting sodding well pregnant!

beedle Brooking that AF does not show up on Wednesday, and good luck for your appointment. I hope all goes well for you both, and that MrBeedle doesn't get bad news. Very wise to take the time off to be with him just in case though.

solars fx for you getting your newborn cuddles this weekend. You can't beat em! I do indeed hope to be more of a full time brooker from next week. This weekend is going to be a complete chill-down, get my head together type of thing though.

sparks so pleased to see you happy and positive. I'm guessing the PCOS diagnosis has helped you rather than made you feel worse yes? And with it being such a mild case there is bound to be loads that they can do to help things along. And you also know from your charts that you do ovulate, you are just a little irregular at doing so, so you don't need to worry about that aspect of PCOS. When's the job interview? I should know this but I've got brains made of mushy peas today blush I still think you should get another opinion about your rash. Especially if it is keeping you from smacking the rat, because that simply is not on. Some doctors just do not appreciate the important things in life!! is this post long enough for you so far?

sweetie oh my goodness - that just goes to highlight the difference in time frame between long protocol and short protocol! I can't believe it has come around already. Brooking for fab follies for you for Monday, and super speedy swimmers for MrSweetie. Bless him for finally looking up to see what he can do to help things along even if it is a bit on the late side now

boo how's my favourite recently-PSEPP doing? Brill news that your face is on the mend, that is so good to hear. Now you can concentrate on your manic gym life, camping without electricity and all of the other daft things you enjoy grin

fluff you tell your fluffster to stay put until the 17th October. That is by far the best day of the year to be born grin

solars, sweetie and scarlett, were any of you just a little bit shock when you had to complete the 'welfare of the child' form for IVF? I spent several hours wandering round, randomly ranting that if I were a chain-smoking, binge-drinking, worshipping-at-the-golden-arches-three-times-a-day type person who just so happened to have been personally blessed by Aphrodite's fertility stick that nobody would bat an eyelid or question my right to have children but because I need to go through IVF the world and its dog has a right to sit in judgement of me.

I think I've already splurged all my news via phone - nothing new to report really. Got my 2 hr appointment for IVF on Monday, they rang me up at lunchtime in a panic, for some reason thinking I didn't know anything about it! They have confirmed they did receive the letter from my consultant so PCOD is one of the things they will pay particular attention to in my scan.

<waves to bartlett, cartoon, maybe, olives, rubber, and everyone else and sniffs around for crisp sandwich crumbs>

Solars Fri 07-Sep-12 18:49:19

Just wanted to wish Face lots of good luck tmrw at your appointment and lots of brooking for Sweetie's scan, hope it all goes well!!

Also Sparkes if your rash is really not settling and still flaring up then I think it's worth another chat with your gp about or as someone (sorry I can't remember who said it) perhaps an appointment for allergy tests??

Geek I was definitely shocked too, it's just crazy isn't it?? Sorry not a clue on what AMH figures mean and what is PCOD? Anyway good luck for monday hope it goes well and they can reassure you.

Have a lovely weekend everyone x

TheLittleFriend Fri 07-Sep-12 19:05:29

Marking place for lots of bfp's on this lucky thread x

ScarlettInSpace Fri 07-Sep-12 19:08:59

Hmmm I had to fill in so many forms I lost track but I don't remember a welfare o the child one?

Geek I have missed you long chatty posts. Glad you made it through the jury service, what did you think? Good, bad, long, boring?

I remember all the forms we had to complete, seemed to go on forever. Once you are signed up for treatment there are even more about consent over what to do with unused or unsuitable eggs, what happens to frozen embryos if one person dies, on and on etc. Everytime they write to you GP they ask them if there is anything the GP is aware of to raise as a concern.

My clinic rang me prior to my first appointment to make sure I would be still attending, I wonder if the get a lot of no shows due to ironic BFPs.

Imps7 Fri 07-Sep-12 21:18:52

Yo new Fred in da house check it check it yo yo yo.

Belly button is now crusty rather than gunky. That's better isn't it?

Will read back on y'all tomorrow check it check it yo.

Imps thanks for sharing, glad it seems to be getting better.

Will be back later this afternoon with a follie update. We are going to go straight from the hospital to seaside for the afternoon. Haven't decided if to go to Scarborough or cayton bay yet, but don't be worrying fish & chips will be had wherever we end up.

Hope everyone else has a lovely weekend planned

imps you're actually gross envy <<< my face is this colour

I'm 7dpo and suffering from zero symptoms, make a nice change

ScarlettInSpace Sat 08-Sep-12 09:51:55

Morning all, sweetie good luck for today, and enjoy done seagull dodging this afternoon.

This IVF lark really isn't agreeing with me, sooooooooooooo hope I only have to do it the once envy

I'm sick of feeling sick and tired of feeling tired, and quite frankly I feel like a grumpy miserable anti social hag, my friends are having an engagement party later and at the moment OH is going to go on his own because I really don't want to be nice to people whilst trying not to vom plus I would totally feel like the spectre at the feast, all I want to do us loll around and read my book and not talk to anyone on rl.

Sigh.

sad

scarlett so sorry you are still feeling under the weather, maybe short protocol next time??? Of course there won't be a next time.

Sparks no symptom is a symptom, maybe this is due to your more relaxed approach

scarlett so sorry your feeling poorly, is there anything your consultant can do? To ease the symptoms?

sweetie yes I think you may be right in that I'm so chilled Im not thinking about symptoms!

Question - I've just had a letter from the hospital with another scan date, the lady didn't tell me I'd need to have another one, and I haven't been to the docs yet so any ideas why I might have to have another one?
