Put on your vest/shades and grab your weapons, it's Action Hero Time.

The BESH are experts in all matters action, but specialise in taking out the local droids and sometimes Druids wink

I don't get how moon cup would help really. Seems more likely to encourage thrush or something with the wrong kind of fluid sitting around in yer fanjo for hours.

<command crawls across floor> Looking elegant, of course. Not like a beached whale hmm

Evening schlags! Marking spot to keep an eye on progress. A day for new freds, just started a PESH one too. Rooting for a cluster diff!

I don't think using a mooncup after the sechs is any more helpful than sticking your legs in the air and I'm skeptical about. Surely the rapid swimmers are straight out the starting blocks and up your cervix anyways?

That's a bit weird sinks. Tonight I got a sponsored ad about 'Exploring your fertility' hmm. Generally I get pelvic floor toners confused

Yo bitches. Ahem.

Nothing much to report. Second swirly mixy injection done, and managed without a big air bubble this morning too. It does make me late to get up though - all the faffing about takes me a good 15 minutes.

<performs chin ups, pauses>

I also think the good swimmers get propelled through the cervix v quickly (love the Bruce Willis up a lift shaft simile). It's only the crud that would never manage to finish the tubal marathon anyway that would get collected in the cup. Wasn't there a BESH who got diffed from swi when she got up and went for a run afterwards?

I do remember in the halcyon days, when I was still merely contemplating ttc and had an accidental chem preg behind me so I thought I would get diffed easily <hollow laugh>, deciding that I would get up and jump around after swi so that only the really strong swimmers made it though. Extreme natural selection. Now we are down to them being dumped right on top of the egg in a petri dish in a lab in Wimbledon. <sigh>

Rie 130m is amazing. <Has spaff envy>

Well done norf

<resumes chin ups>

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Tue 05-Feb-13 09:56:01

Quit the chin ups. Remember Barry.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Tue 05-Feb-13 09:57:18

Will no one think of Barry?

The thing about him having such amazing spaff is that it brings home how barren I must be sad

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 05-Feb-13 10:12:18

Rie I can't believe you got the word 'ignominious' into a chat fred! grin

See when I think of 'Barry', I think of Ben and Holly. My nephew is a bit obsessed with him!

EuroShagmore Tue 05-Feb-13 10:24:50

You're as bad as KFZK, Rie. I'm not going to break! I was actaually planning on gymming tonight after a few days off post EC and ET, but now I have been invited for a drink. Which do you think is the baddest IVF behaviour - exercise or alcohol?*

*Pointless question cos I'm obviously going to go for the drink!

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Tue 05-Feb-13 10:31:04

I use ignominious every day <airy> Doesn't everyone?

Re the question, I've heard a lot against both, Euro, but particularly vigorous exercise.

EuroShagmore Tue 05-Feb-13 10:43:47

I was planning to tone it down a bit, but I have read that exercise is good as it increases blood flow to the womb. It seems there is no common advice on this. My clinic just said nothing too vigorous and no swimming for a few days (because of the infection risk after all the procedures, which is fair enough). I really don't understand the "special" advice that some clinics give to women in the IVF 2ww. Once you have given your body a chance to recover from EC and ET you should be in the same position as any other woman in the 2ww and there the NHS advice is that it is fine to keep doing whatever you were doing before, but not take up any new exercise.

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Tue 05-Feb-13 10:45:50

I don't know, to be honest. Just don't go running any marathons.

EuroShagmore Tue 05-Feb-13 10:55:29

I couldn't do that, 2ww, or not!

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Tue 05-Feb-13 11:16:52

I'm in the nothing too strenuous after ov camp. I shall not be doing my Shred again for a few weeks - Wii Fit Step Class and a walk at lunchtime (plus the 3 dance lessons I have booked in the coming 2 weeks grin) will be my limit.

<strips down gun for cleaning>

What type of dance frank? I used to be a fan of a dance class, but I did an adult beginners ballet class and it turned out that I was the only beginner, and the only one there that Heat magazine would describe as 'curvy.' Combined with my lack of natural grace, I did an excellent impression of the hippos in tutus from Fantasia.

euro enjoy your evening out. I am sure that it will relax you, and stress + strenuous exercise = 2 bad things for emBarryO, whereas a little drink is only one slightly, not even really bad thing. Go with the numbers.

JethroTull Tue 05-Feb-13 12:09:31

I agree with everyone else on the drink vs. exercise debate. I stopped running whilst I had the IVF shiz. I walked the dog A LOT though as I felt that keeping moving & getting outside was helpful to my state of mind. Having a drink & being out with friends is the much more favourable option.

I'm having a complete meltdown today. I don't feel diffed at all. No symptoms. I was an hour late for work this morning as I couldn't pull myself together enough to get out of the house.

TWinklyLittleStar Tue 05-Feb-13 12:15:01

The thing with TTC for ages is that we've been symptom spotting for so long, its virtually impossible to imagine being diffed without them. But looking on the boards, and speaking to my sister and some friends, the only symptom they have is lack of droid, maybe a teeny bit of nausea. So do try to not let it worry you.

EuroShagmore Tue 05-Feb-13 12:20:31

Jeff it's normal for symptoms to come and go. Would POAF help do you think?

I've tried stopping exercising in the 2ww. Like everything else, it made no bloody difference. I read up on this quite a lot and I cannot find any scientific reason why resting/not exercising in the 2ww would help. One article I read suggested some clinics advice it because then you have no reason to blame yourself if it doesn't work - not for any non-psychological reason. I do think however that if the ovaries are still swollen after IVF drucks that is a reason not to push your body, not least because you could end up with an ovarian torsion, apparently. On normal/natural cycles I can't see any reason for it. But everyone has to do what they are comfortable with.

But anyway, I will be going for a drink tonight.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Tue 05-Feb-13 12:20:56

Ballroom and Latin Twinks, not veh action hero I know but could be useful for undercover work wink

EuroShagmore Tue 05-Feb-13 12:22:20

*advise not advice.

TWinklyLittleStar Tue 05-Feb-13 12:30:47

frank that way if you find yourself joining rie and making up two thirds of Charlies Angels, you can go to the party and not have to be the angel going undercover as a waitress. Like it.

I have a Day Off today. It is delightful. I almost don't know what to be doing with myself, although I am going to a pub quiz in LondonTown tonight. Happily non-parents will outnumber parents 2:1, so hopefully I won't have to hear about Surestart this time. I'm still not drinking, which could be interesting given that I am being attacked vair painfully by the Droid, and have always found a glass of red wine to be a great help.

<uses time wisely, cleaning out weapons and tempting fate>

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Tue 05-Feb-13 12:35:32

Twinks, either that or I can be the femme fatale that seduces the hero wink

Disclaimer - I'm not doing Arnie/Sly/Bruce or any others of that ilk. I will however take one for the team and allow Daniel Craig to shag me senseless grin

ArielThePiraticalMermaid Tue 05-Feb-13 12:48:11

Jeff, thing is my lovely, is you've never been diffed so you don't know how it's supposed to feel. It's only natural to be paranoid after all this time. To echo Euro, could peeing on another fiver help? Seeing the line again?

HavingALittleFaithBaby Tue 05-Feb-13 12:54:39

I pee'd on fivers - well a selection in case one type of test brand was faulty and giving false positives hmm daily for a week jeff. It reassured me to see the lines getting darker. I had days when I hadn't puked for a few hours, that would panic me. Then I'd puke and wish I could stop! But it's early days....it'll depend on what your hormones are doing and how you respond as to how you feel. There's a thread in pregnancy at least once a week where someone expresses exactly the concerns you have. Doesn't mine it's not a sticky bean. Just that everyone is different. My sister never had any sickness, just felt tired.

euro I would go with a everything in moderation approach. During the tww I was drinking and more active than normal (on holiday and cycling everywhere!). Obviously you've had more invasive treatment so take it a bit easier but just try to enjoy yourself smile

FriendofDorothy Tue 05-Feb-13 13:14:09

Jeffers I had next to no symptoms either. No sickness or anything. Just felt bloody knackered but even that fluctuated.

DolomitesDonkey Tue 05-Feb-13 13:33:52

Jeffers I didn't have early symptoms with either of mine and didn't have achey boobs at any point during either pregnancy. I did vomit constantly from 6+3 with #1 and from 4+5 with #2 though. You don't need to be able to tick off all the symptoms to be pregnant and it probably won't feel at all real until your scan. x
