Expecto Patronum

If you are you over 30 and have been ttc for over 12 months, are witch like or even better a complete hag and willing to abuse your powers of wizardry to conjure up gin by the bucket load, then fill out the Beshionnaire and join us if you dare in our battle against BESH curse.

Instadiffers and baby dusters will be turned into frogs and used in a potion.

Peskipiksi Pesternomi!!!

Sorry Holls- I forgot you did it too.

Morning BESH. Happy bank holiday.

Aldi own brand gin = nicer than Bombay Sapphire and only a tenner a bottle.

Fancies40Winks Mon 26-Aug-13 07:11:26

Happy Bank Holiday bugs

I am just finishing work and very much looking forward to bed.

JethroTull Mon 26-Aug-13 07:18:50

Nice thread Rasp!

Cherry, what horrid news for your sister & family.

Bugs why are you awake so early??

Fancies40Winks Mon 26-Aug-13 07:20:09

Why are you up so early jeff? You are Not Well and should be resting <stern>

OhBuggerMe Mon 26-Aug-13 07:20:56

Because I'm staaaaaarving!

cherry I'm so so sorry for your news. Life really is shit sometimes thanks

JethroTull Mon 26-Aug-13 07:38:39

I can't bloody sleep confusedconfused
I can't get comfy. I'm in the spare room as SSG was a.) snoring after 2 nights on the beer & b.) took over the whole kingsize bed.
I want to go & make a cup of tea but then the dog will be awake & want a walk.

evilgiraffe Mon 26-Aug-13 07:58:30

Any gin (except Williams Chase) is better than Bombay Sapphire. That stuff is like paint stripper.

So sorry to hear about your sister, coco. I hope that they're able to treat it effectively. How horrible for you all.

Why would anyone go on the PESH fred? It's like self-flagellation or something.

And keeping on feem: ten points to raspindor for starting the fred! I have my very own Slytherin scarf wot I got at Universal Studios last year. As soon as I got it I started judging/looking down on anyone wearing anything from a different house.

Cherry I'm so sorry to hear about your sister.

Just a quick update for you all: pinkr has laid!

holls2000 Mon 26-Aug-13 08:17:10

It's ok bear, I won't hold it against you.
Bough myself an iPad over weekend so can communicate from the bed. Himself is thrilled as it means I'm not pestering him!
In laws stayed over last nigh unexpectedly so any bank holiday recreation bedroom-stylee has been hampered...!!! Have a grand day all

Agreed that Bombay Saphire is not what it's cracked up to be. Distinctly average in my book. We're back on the Plymouth after ROCH's birthday delivered spectacularly well on that front. Now there's a quality gin. Good advice on the aldi win bugs.

Thanks for the goodwishes. Trying hard to keep perspective and not to worry as we don't really know what to worry about yet. Sis is a ton better for being on a drip for 24hrs and after a couple of nights in has been allowed home until tomorrow. I've been ringing all our mutual friends to convey the bad news. Saying it outloud is the worst.

Jeff how far gone are you? Suspect you are now out dog walking?!

OhBuggerMe Mon 26-Aug-13 08:28:08

Congratulations to pinkr

3 people asked me about babies / my fertility woes last night and were all fucking rude. They're my friends and I love them but at one point I hid in the spare bedroom and cried a bit!

cherrycoconut Mon 26-Aug-13 08:36:01

Bugs that's shit for you. Did they know about your stresses before? Crapy of them to be so insensitive if they did. We had a BBQ the other week and now that we've told a couple of people about our troubles they were all off fighting our corner for us. Twas amazing to watch! All talk of pitter patter of tiny feet <boak> stopped dead in its tracks.

Fab news pinkr

OhBuggerMe Mon 26-Aug-13 08:47:00

That's the thing Cherry they all fecking know. One woman used it as her opening line "So how are you? (rubbing her stomach) anything new with treatment or ivf?"

My answer was "Without being rude I've adopted a don't ask, we'll tell rule and considering I'm on double measures of gin, there's nowt to tell."

I'm still pissed grin

cherrycoconut Mon 26-Aug-13 08:53:16

WTF? Why do folk get so ridiculously insensitive around the subject and start acting like morons? Cunts.

OhBuggerMe Mon 26-Aug-13 08:54:49

Exactly. Tossers

eurochick Mon 26-Aug-13 09:01:50

draf I consider it "inspiration" for myself.

Oh bugs that's shit. Some people are so insensitive. Nice answer tho.

cherry what sort is it? You don't have to say unless you want to, of course. I'm glad your sis is better for being looked after.

RaspberrySnowCone Mon 26-Aug-13 09:09:16

I had that the other night, my friend is lovely but chose to bring it up by saying 'so have you that your treatment yet'. Now it's so close and we've decided to hide ourselves away I am going to let people know that I will tell them as and when we are ready to so could they please not ask. The friends we have told will understand and won't take offence. I just don't want to be answering questions every five minutes.

By the way, it's our anniversary today. Two years ago today I was off to the hair dressers :/

OhBuggerMe Mon 26-Aug-13 09:17:12

Happy anniversary Rasp.

Hiding away is exactly what we'll do. We'll start to let people know when the 3 month count down begins in September and we'll tale folk its in 6 months time to keep them off our backs.

I have shocking ovation pain today. Me & GP are a bit rough and Imight puke on him.if we have a shag so I suspect this cycle will be out for us. I'm so used to.not being pregnant now.

RaspberrySnowCone Mon 26-Aug-13 09:20:07

Wish we had thought to do that. Never mind. There is only one person who will notice my absence from work as she's in the next off but she's a lovely friend so I know won't ask questions if I don't want her too. I'm really hoping for a 29 day cycle this time.

JethroTull Mon 26-Aug-13 09:43:54

I used to talk about our non baybee winning issues all the time. Especially when it made other smug people feel uncomfortable when they asked why we 'hadn't bothered having children yet'. Soon shut them up.

Cherry - I'm 35 weeks tomorrow.

Now I try not to talk about being a preggo much. I know how it made me feel before. And on that note I'm off to do jobs. Have good Bank Hols smile

holls2000 Mon 26-Aug-13 11:20:12

Oh bugs that's crap. hmm I had a friend who texted me a photo of her baby on the day I was taken in to have my mc. I had to laugh because if I didn't I would probably have had a massive breakdown! It has sort of put a slight edge on our friendship though.

Ho hum. Off to clean the shit hole that is our house after 4 guests and a dog. smile

OhBuggerMe Mon 26-Aug-13 12:02:37

I don't get it, its as if the whole purpose of living is just to have a baby and if you don't folk either pity you or assume you're weird / selfish!

holls2000 Mon 26-Aug-13 12:44:42

It almost makes me want to act weird and selfish just to prove them right!

Bearfacedchic Mon 26-Aug-13 16:59:38

It's just so annoying having to justify yourself all the time. It's none of anyone's goddamn business anyway. I don't understand how people feel they can even ask.
