Just Shagging - JSers roll up for fred 12(1000 Posts)
Oh, the other fred filled up all of a sudden! Oh well here's a new one....(horse feel free to replace if you want to be fred starter, just didn't want everyone in limbo!)
1. Thou shalt shag as much as humanly possible in order to get upduffed.
2. Thou shalt not partake of OPKs, temping, or charting.
3. Thou shalt keep symptom spotting to a minimum.
4. Thou shalt share and with your fredmates where needed.
ERTD = Evil Red Tide of Dooooooommmmmmm. Or AF to most others.
Pant snot = Egg white cervical mucus.
Doing a kitten = Getting upduffed soon after joining (warning: may induce in other posters).
Viroid = This is you, dear poster. The reason for this is a closely guarded secret, known only to....er....well, nobody as far as we can tell!
POAS = Pee On A Stick (of the pregnancy detecting kind, not from a tree). Also known as PIAR (Pee In A Ramekin - cos we're posh birds innit).
Shagging like something = JSing like a teenage nymphomaniac.
Giving a hooya = Giving a much needed slap to a fellow poster in danger of slipping into ttc obsession.

Happy shagging shaggers
Ah, cross-post notso - glad to see you are in good spirits! My tree is not up yet either, but we still have time.
Same here - I'm just surrounded by people with children all Christmas. My new nephew is due in about a week too. My friend is due a few weeks after Christmas. I'm excited for them but a bit myself. So glad I odn't teach primary - I couldn't bear it I don't think. I'll be
drinking myself into a stupor playing merrily and brooding under my santa hat congratulating everyone on their lovely babies all Christmas. Gah - I know I seem all bitter. I'm not really. Just jealous, as previously discussed.
Nah, I don't think you should go with the red and green in real life Red as you'd look like an elf although I nearly went out with different boots on the other day after putting them on in the dark! It's a good name though. Or how about RedTwinklyShoes?
Realised I am posting on here far too much - really need a job!
Red - I have a very similar Christmas get together and I'll be the only one too. In fact, I think I'm the only one of all my friends who are my age who isn't upduffed, holding a baby or has a DC or 2.
I am channeling my energy into buying awesome gifts for the kids. Then I can spend the party playing with Barbie and her cruise ship rather than listening to all the baby talk. It's OK to be bitter, santabear - this is safe haven LOL!
New subset of Just Shagging: Just Getting Drunk at Holiday Parties to Ignore Barren Uterus.
Hi all...I think I am going to love you and leave you now, as I'm now past 12 weeks and had a successful scan today.
I really hope you all get to come across to the grads thread really soon.
I may still lurk on occasion, if that's OK? <winning smile>
MrsBri Fantastic!! Have fun in the grads thread.
Red Good plan!
Thanks for all the kind words. It's been tough: ds has had ear infections and a chest infection, work has been horrible and we found out we won't be in our house for Xmas. Which upset me lots. Backstory: this time last year I broke my foot, and ended up with a blood clot the length of my leg which was misdiagnosed and ended up in my heart and lungs. I very nearly died, saved only by ds who woke me up in the night. I have been told another hour and I wouldn't have woken up at all. I spent a month o a specialist ward in hospital and missed ds's first Christmas altogether - I don't remember Christmas at all. So this year, I really had this amazing Christmas all planned, the whole family coming to us etc, but there have been lots of
ridiculous complications with our house and so we will be with the mil and fil until new year. Which is fine but it was the last straw the other day. Thanks for being all luffly
I consoled myself by spending a fortune on a massive tree and put it up with ds in Mil's living room. It totally dominates the room and is monstrous but I love it and it is making me happier.
Told DH he's to knock me up in the next ten days or he's not getting any Christmas presents. And his presents are really good this year it's green week on my app so he has bee told it's Lucky Week and to get, ahem, on it!
How are you all? Will go do a catch up proper in a sec. Ds snoring away next to me so am going to chat for a bit if anyone's about and then nod off too I think. Hope all well; let's have some positive tests under those trees shall we? Come on, Santa!
Not going to do a name change I think: mine is pretty festive, isn't it! Loving the others though!
ding what a scary story about the blood clot. I believe everything happens for a reason - maybe for the house situation as well? Doesn't make the stress any easier, though. Ugh!
I love that your DH has been delivered his Christmas Orders. Our "green week" is right around Christmastime so that should be very festive! I think I need something sexy to wear.
Sorry to hear all of that Ding, but at least things are looking up.
My green week ends on Boxing Day (so hopefully, I won't be drinking this New Years Eve).
I've got a chest and ear infection too (finally having to bite the bullet and go to work today though - still, only 8 working days left this year ) hoping that the floor doesn't get too close today though as I have loads to catch up on. ERTD should finish in a couple of days too so have a lot of JSing to catch up on too
Goodbye MrsBri! Hope it all goes swimmingly and hopefully see you in
lurkers corner grads fred soon. Mwah!
Ding - how scary! I have a friend who nearly died from undiagnosed pre-eclampsia who ended up in ICU and it's the same for her. (Baby was okay though.) I totally understand why you wanted a Christmas of epic proportions this year. I'm sure you can still have a lovely time even if not in your own house. Glad you're liking your monster tree. I don't have one yet. Getting it at the weekend I think - yay!
Good thinking Red - Barbie talks so much sense, doesn't she? I'm definitely up for the new sub-fred Red. Just up my street . . .
Sorry to hear lots of people aren't well. Hope you get better soon.
I'm off to
my second home the hospital again today for my eyes. Hoping they'll just say: 'Ah, it's nothing, go home. It'll go away on its own.' Not sure they will though. Eek. I do get to do a job application for a job I really want and make Christmas flapjacks today though.
Tried to read through lots of posts already but struggling with 33 pages tbh!
I'm new to TTC so I thought I'd try just JSing for a while! I'm the type to get addicted to charts etc quickly!
CD 4 so should be able to start going at with gusto by the weekend! The DH is going to have a very Merry lead up to Christmas!
I'm on my phone so can someone please add me to the list?
Any DC: No
TTC: First Month
Quick christmassy wave to everyone. I'm still upduffed, so flitting between here and the grads fred until I have my 12 week scan (which I am guessing will be mid to late January), until then, no-one in RL knows at all so poor DH is having to cope with mood swings, nausea, fainting and me being a total panicker all by himself.
If it is any consolation, although we managed to get a pre-Christmas BFP, we have a house so cold that we see our breath, can't have anyone round because it is still a building site (and is likely to be so for AGES and AGES) and are totally broke. Well, almost. On the coin jar til I get paid Friday, but then our xmas pressies to each other will comprise:
8 sheets of plaster board
a soil pipe
a soil pipe connector
wood for boxing in pipes
Would it be really daft for me to wrap a big red ribbon round the plaster board before I give it to DH?
Okay, so I just did another POAS just for fun and I have a faint horizontal line in the window where there should be a vertical one. I may sound really dumb here but does it have to be vertical and has anyone else ever had this? I know it's probably nothing at all, but thought I would just ask to quell my curiosity.
Hello Jemimah - welcome! Nice name.
Glad it's all going well for you Waves. I love the idea of a pipe with a big red bow on it! You could wrap each sheet of plasterboard too. Can imagine you both sitting there saying, 'Hmm. Wonder what that is? And there's 8 of them.'
Okay - don't worry - own question answered. Line has disappeared. Still definitely a BFN. Boo, hiss. . .
Thanks Santa my DH calls me Jemimah for some reason have no idea why!
I see you have answered your own question but just wanted you to know I had the horizontal line on a Tesco test this Sunday then it disappeared too (wanted to check if I was pg before we officially TTC wishful thinking AF arrived 20 mins later) Hopefully you will get your Bfp soon.
Country have a cuppa hun... Offering you my hand of needed....or a biscuit if not
Thanks notso had a cuppa and
a 2 3 biscuits and am feeling much better! Had a proper strop this morning but that is probably because my oh so childish dh of nearly 30 was making poo and fart jokes like a 8 year old while I was trying to tell him the witch had arrived! Grr! Oh well at least I can get drunk at Christmas!
Can anyone recomend a good phone app for tracking af dates etc?
Hi Jemimah, welcome to the thread!
Bye MrsBri and good luck!
country I use pink pad (the free version) on iPhone to track, seems pretty good tho it really is fuchsia pink! Can annotate when you DTD, ERTD, weight, temp (if temping - I don't use this) and it tells you when you're likely to be fertile and when ERTD next due.
I'm clearly due a visit by the witch - sat and cried watching Thomas the bloody Tank this morning!! DS was very but DH just laughed at me
I use woman log the free one too. ERTD nearly gone, so back to DTD every night, dammit
Here's hoping to a lucky month
I use My Days X on android.
I think 'green week' is coming to an end. Did it plenty, but not holding out any particular hope. Due date for next AF is Christmas Day. I will not be POAS then, because I am terrible at keeping a straight face for anything, and if it was positive I would be grinning and my parents would guess.
I wrote a long post yesterday but the iPad battery died just. I was pressing post... Was some sentimental guff about how shagging with intent has been more enjoyable than contracepted shagging, in my view. I think I/we have been more inventive and supportive of each other's shagging technique to counter any nagging thought that it's a baby making chore.
DH home soon with Thai takeaway treat. Then we may be off to bed again :-)
Hey all, just popping in to say hello. I've been a bit quiet over here, still sick and miserable. Finally went to the doctor yesterday, which I never do. He confirmed I was well on my way to a sinus infection and gave me some stuff to bring down the swelling. It's helping...somewhat. Ugh. DH can't wait to get back to business I am just NOT in the mood!
Sorry about ERTD country. tenton I love sentimental, even if we didn't get to read the post! It has been enjoyable in a very different and unexpected way.
So how's this for romance? Just reminded DH, "I'm too sick for sex." "I'll do work if you just lay there." Thanks, honey. How about go do the dishes first?
redshoes, my DP says that, "but you don't even need to do anything", thanks babe
