Old Fred here

Here we go Brookers, it's been a long year with lots of BFPs and newborn snuggles for the Brookers. We're just a sleigh-ride away from 2013, when the rest of us will get our get our 12 week scans (because of course we will all have BFPs under the christmas tree this year!)

So come all ye brookers, it's tinsel and baubels all the way!

There's about an inch or two of snow come down mostly this morning, but a little bit overnight beedle - still snowing quite heavily now, so will be going home at lunchtime and throwing snowballs at the cats working from home this afternoon.

Who knows, when MrG and I eventually tie the knot I might indeed be a wicked step mother, complete with evil cackle!

keepitgoing Fri 18-Jan-13 12:01:54

No snow here... ;)
Am quite shock how much there is.

I'm also a PM virgin.

Solars Fri 18-Jan-13 12:20:31

Beedle have emailed you grin

You can pm me anytime Keep grin

Will be back later, we're just off out for a walk in the snow to pick up the car from the garage cos I'm to chicken to drive back alone in the snow as its coming down thick and fast here (yippee!)

ControlGeek Fri 18-Jan-13 13:38:39

Got home to find there is 5 inches where I live!!! shock

BeedlesPineNeedles Fri 18-Jan-13 14:03:18

<snigger snigger> at geek finding 5 inches at home grin

Geek we're not far away, obviously, I've just had to walk home (2 hours) and then we've had to dig front door free, flipping 12 inch flipping snow drift!!!

ControlGeek Fri 18-Jan-13 14:32:25

Wow sparks what a difference a few miles makes! Our back door has a nice big drift against it though, ain't no cats coming in that there door!

ControlGeek Fri 18-Jan-13 14:36:51

and sparks should you even be walking for 2 hours in this weather in your coniditon???

SweetieTime Fri 18-Jan-13 14:40:49

Not much snow to report here. A light dusting has not thawed since last weekend. Expecting more overnight.

face so pleased all seems to have settled down

No snow fallen or expected even

NewYearNewBoo Fri 18-Jan-13 15:14:07

Our snow has really just started, we have had some for a day or two but this afternoon it has got worse. DH has been sent home so we have just been for a lovely snow walk smile

Face glad things have settled, stay in bed, eat lots of chocolate!

Sorry can't remember what else I read confused

<leaves hot chocolate with little marsmallows for the snow bound>

Withalittlesparkle Fri 18-Jan-13 15:20:59

geek I had a choice walk home (4 miles) or spend the night at work!! Mrsparks couldn't get his car through due to us being surrounded by stupid hills!!!

NewYearNewBoo Fri 18-Jan-13 15:29:19

Sparks as long as you are home safe, warm and have Mr S looking after you now! You have earned lots of chocolate!!!!! smile

keepitgoing Fri 18-Jan-13 15:35:46

Hope he came to meet you, sparks.

Snow report, still none here, but I'll keep checking and let you know.

envy but will be sure to bring some tales from the beach next week to get you back!

Ooh, if you have a cat, pick them up and put them in the garden. Priceless face!

Night girls. Have a headache is that a symptom ay 7dpiui
grin

Withalittlesparkle Fri 18-Jan-13 17:12:02

Yes don't worry Mrsparks dumped the car at home then met me half way, soon as I saw him I relaxed, he carried my bag home and then ordered me in to comfy clothes (his hoody is my fave at the mo) and has been faffing round me all afternoon!!

Keep our kitties have been acting most perculiar, they run out in to the garden dive round for 30 secs (can barely see them it's that deep in the drifts) then they run in crying like its our fault that its snowing!!!!

Withalittlesparkle Fri 18-Jan-13 17:12:57

Oh and keep? Hormone headache?!?! Symptom for sure!!!

SweetieTime Fri 18-Jan-13 17:34:46

Just popping in to let you all know my very luffly gp has agreed to send me for blood tests for recurrent miscarriage. I only asked for the sticky blood ones but she put them all on the forms. She was so nice & understanding. I have to take the results to the consultant as she isn't specialised enough to interpret them, fair enough I suppose. I feel so relieved now

Withalittlesparkle Fri 18-Jan-13 18:12:25

sweetie that's such good news!! How long for the results to come back?!

NewYearNewBoo Fri 18-Jan-13 19:53:15

thanks <-- for Sweetie's GP! That is fantastic news for you, another sign that it is all going your way!!!!

Geek I am so pleased for Mr G and the response to his letter, and I truly love the idea you could be the wicked stepmother grin

Good old Mr sparks, taking such good care of you Sparks (and giving up his jumper grin)

ControlGeek Fri 18-Jan-13 20:46:56

sweetie that's amazing news! So pleased your GP was able to arrange that for you, and that you will get the whole rake of the tests done. That will surely put your mind at ease before your IVF.

Keep Def a sign of diffedness. Guaranteed.

sparks I'm so relieved to hear you didn't have to walk all that way on your own, what a nightmare! Is it still snowing where you are? Ours stopped at somewhere between 5 and 7 inches but I keep checking the forecast to see when it is due to start again.

boo how's your snow? Do you normally get quite a lot? I always imagine the north getting loads of snow!

Well I'm sitting here with a glass of pinotage, trying not to listen to MrG being violently ill upstairs sad Today he's had a hypo, a hyper and D&V. Not the best start for his weekend. I've packed him off to bed with a bucket and a glass of water, having checked that his blood sugar is now in the right ballpark. I don't make a very good nurse I'm afraid.

Solars Fri 18-Jan-13 23:02:17

Poor MrG Geek hope he feels better soon, that does not sound like fun sad

Sweetie what a lovely gp you have, it will be so reassuring doing those tests before your ivf. I have an appointment with my gp next week as the new clinic has listed a whole range of tests required on their registration form, so hoping we will be able to get a lot of them done on the NHS.

Keep I'm good thanks, I'm afraid it's just a waiting game for us now so trying not to get anxious about it all. We had our lap follow up last weekend and the consultant said he will write us a referral for the new clinic so we thought we would wait until we got that and send it along with all our registration paperwork. It may be another 6 week wait after that to get our appointment, sigh!

Glad you're safe and sound at home Sparkes

Hope you're feeling ok today Face

Oh Beedle imagine if someone else picked up your print out!? shock you wouldn't be able to claim it as yours.

Lots of snow here and the walk in it with DH was fun, not sure how I'd feel about it in the next few days when it becomes icy and grim, quite likely cursing it! Have a good weekend everyone, I'm just hoping we can still get out about for some of the stuff we have planned this weekend...

keepitgoing Sat 19-Jan-13 02:25:11

Well done sweetie for getting your GP to do those tests. Time is marching towards your ivf, v exciting!

solars do you get another NHS round then? Assume so, if you're having to wait for the appointment. All the waiting is so tiresome but gives time for an ironic bfp remind me why you're changing clinic?

face, am thank ng of you. 11 days to Scan Day!

Have sent dh off to jiaj. This will inform whether we should do if or icsi... Appointment tomorrow morning.

Will sister's flight be able to take off tonight? Stupid snow, grrr.

keepitgoing Sat 19-Jan-13 02:26:28

Headache still here too much MN

oh keep poor you. best stay away from pain killers in ur condition though wink
sweetie that's so good that ur gp is arranging those tests for you. its good to cover all bases.
hope Mr geek feels better soon.
morning pant check- no spotting. (is this wearing thin yet)
we've got maybe 3inches of snow here but I think more is expected. we're supposed to collect something from town today I may send dh by himself, on the other hand the walk might do me good.

ok now there's more pink blood. I really don't think this is going to be ok.
