Roll up, roll up for the best discussions of ewcm, opk, ic and double dying you'll ever have. Probably.

The smallprint - Berries have a strict entrance criteria (TTC #1, over 30, TTC for 3+months, NO instadiffers, must have a special pot) and def no mention of baby dust or baby dancing UGH !!! Ooh we are strict...please note your house may be at risk if you do not keep up repayments lol

Pouffe of possibility

Hi marie sorry to hear about your mc but welcome to a lovely thread.

Hooray for sweeties and chic chip cookies sound good enough for me if you're offrin...

marie456 Tue 16-Jul-13 20:14:30

Thanks for the welcome! ...Hahaha! That's a good selection of seats!! Sofa of Pity will probably suit me after last week if theres any comfy cushions left!
Merkin I went to the GP but they are saying "just one of those things" at present. Going to read up more on the progesterone stuff and get myself back there.
Think it's going to take me forever to catch up with the goings on on the Elderberry threads!

foody I can't work out how too add you on my fitness pal! Do I need to add you on FB first? I want to show off how angelic I've been these last 2 days as I will fail miserably soon

barking and happy afraid I have no sympathy for you seeing as you break up on Friday!!! wink

thunder I have no idea! I actually wondered if something awful happened to me in a previous life!

marie well you've come to the right place! Oh and we've just had 2 bfps after a REALLY long time so we're due for a third given that things come in 3s...

Bunnygirlie Tue 16-Jul-13 20:19:16

thunder just re-read your post from earlier, can I have a bug hug too grin

marie welcome to the gang, sorry you are having a tough time

So do you think it's weird or ironic that I keep my opks in my box of tampons?!?

BlindKitty Tue 16-Jul-13 20:20:45

breaking bad fans - just watched the last episode of season 4 and OMG!!!!

It's just dawned on me that I've got to start planning this baby shower of my friend's <sobs>. Why do I do these things lol? X

BlindKitty Tue 16-Jul-13 20:24:01

yorkie just fyi I emailed my local BMI recently and asked if I could have an amh test without having to pay for a consultation and they said all they'd need is a letter from my gp and £95

Just adding myself to the list, not done it before so hopefully it works!

Bunny - 33, month 15 TTC, had basic tests, awaiting FC referral letter
Happy - 35 cycle 12. Last ditch attempt to get upduffed before taking a break in preparation for wedding next year. Also waiting for FC appt.
Tallyra, 33, ttc for ages, keep getting sick and then losing it. Hysteroscopy next week the back to trying again.
boom 31, month 15, mc last year, pcos, starting clomid next cycle if AF ever fricking turns up. Dangerously grumpy.
Sidney - 38, Lucky Cycle 13 TTC, all tests normal, awaiting FC referral letter
Foody - 33, ttc nov 2011, 1mc may 2013, currently on hold until end Aug/start Sep. Hate F&*%$^& condoms, grrr, hanging on by a thread most days
Barking - 34, ttc cycle 20, had all the tests, FC said 'unexplained infertility', dismissed 8 day LP as a potential issue, on first cycle of Clomid.
Lady - 34, ttc for 18 months, awaiting AMH and sperm swim-up test results at private FC appointment

I'm on CD22, had a peak on CBFM on day 20. Usually I ovulate on the day after the first peak but no temp rise today so got to DTD again tonight.

Tallyra Tue 16-Jul-13 20:31:25

hi Marie, welcome!
I've had 3 mc and I'm sorry to tell you that the doctors wo.t do anything until it happens 3 times :-( but if you have a sympathetic gp or consultant you might be able to persuade them to do some blood tests.

Ahh bunny bug hug! I didn't see that before. Yes of course you can have one; come into my six arms x

marie I had a mmc at 12 weeks last year. Horrible horrible.

Yes blind you nutter. We've spoken about this before....

BlindKitty Tue 16-Jul-13 20:43:39

thunder don't worry dh gets his own back with all his boob squeezage and dry humping in the night!!!! How you feeling?

Wtf?! Night dry humping? Do you slap him? You are a right pair!

Feeling ok, just in denial really. Sore tummy and being knackered are just standard at the mo.

cherrycoconut Tue 16-Jul-13 20:49:25

Might as well add myself while hoping for a miracle!

marie456 Tue 16-Jul-13 20:55:41

Thanks for the welcome folks! Hahaha! What a choice of seating! The Sofa of Pity will probably suffice for a while after last weeks experience. Then I may move to the Recliner for a Whiner (or even a Winer depending on the mood).
GP says mc "just one of those things". Going to read up a bit more on low progesterone and then head back there for a rant chat. I am thinking low progesterone due to pre period spotting for a few days and shortish luteal phase. Scoffing prenatal vitamins have added 1-2 days onto the luteal phase it seems.
I'm sure I'll be back here for plenty of moaning and stressing!

Oh didn't realise that my 2nd post had worked. Now I've posted a very similar post and look like a knob on my first day blush

Don't worry about that, done all the time!

Ha Marie fret not, first day knobbishness is permitted. But if you do it again after today we will have to tar and feather you and dunk you in the bubblebath of gloom grin

Kitty sleep dry humping? really? DH would get an elbow in the gob and a knee in the groin for that That must be annoying..

Hope you stay in denial a bit longer thunder, I'm not letting you escape to the grads any time soon!

happylass Tue 16-Jul-13 21:48:41

Kitty im often woken in the early hours by DP groping me in his sleep. He is genuinely comatose and has no recollection of doing it. A loud Oi and an elbow in his ribs usually stops him in his tracks!

IamKuma Tue 16-Jul-13 21:59:36

Hi Marie and welcome.

Nothing to report from me; AF should depart shortly then its back to more of the same.

aquarius sorry your DH not cooperating; I suspect I have this to come. My DH said from day 1 that if things didn't happen naturally he wasn't really interested in getting help. If you have any bright ideas about how to broach the subject do let me know!

Kuma - 38, month 7, in denial, history of gynaecological wierdnesses....

Someone make room for menon the beanbag of grumpiness, one of DPs closest friends just emailed to share their happy news... This one stings particularly as they split up last year and I distinctly remember her telling me that she knew they had to split when she had a pg scare and 'couldn't think of anything worse' than having a baby with her DH. It stuck as we were already trying at that time. And now they've had time to renconcile, sort their marriage out, decide to ttc and not only get updiffed but be far enoigh along now to tell everyone, all while DP and I were still trying sad . Life is NOT FAIR!!!!! angry

But at least I have triple chocolate cookies to stuff my face with in pity eat. grin

Oh no boom. If I go I'm planning on taking you with me! Surely it's time for the bfp rush now...

My oh has weird toenails and has drawn blood on my ankles by scratching me in the night. Yuck!

BlindKitty Tue 16-Jul-13 22:26:49

thunder happy boom he generally gets an elbow although on shag weeks I have been known to wear an easy-access nightie in case I can get a bonus shag out of him. He generally only wakes up half way through wink

marie recliner for a whiner/winer??? I think we're going to like you grin

CharmingCats Tue 16-Jul-13 22:32:29

Hello,
Thank you for your fb thoughts and for not leaving me! Feeling better today apart from a hot classroom and playground. We break up next Wednesday, so it's all about maintaining routine until the last possible minute.
Welcome marie. The berries are great support, sources of knowledge and general hilarity. Hope you're being kind to yourselves.
barking what a shit pg announcement. The nerve!
Saw the be more dog advert today and absolutely loved it. The cat's smile when it has its head out the car window is priceless.
