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
bunny it was Midwives that I was talking about last week. Not sure about this week but last week was filmed at the hospital where I'm having my fertility treatment, and subsequent baby (please God)! fantasises about midwives being MY midwives!
bunnyhappy not long til your appointments now. happy are you going to tell the consultant that you're having a break?
Sid sounds like your consultant has been very thorough. The clomid is prob worth a try but glad there not making you wait too long for your IVF
So been for more acupuncture tonight...managed not to squish any pigeons this time!
Sounds like the FC appointment was promising Sid. This was in contrast to my FC appointment yesterday. To be fair, we were only there for blood tests and day 5 dildocam for me. The annoying part was that I went the loo after the scan and the radiographer was rushing so gave DH the results without me being there. DH said that "my count was good", unfortunately he was unable to elaborate as he didn't clarify what she meant. I assume the radiographer was referring to my follicles? Was pretty cross that DH hadn't asked more questions (cue row) and also cross that she just rushed off when I was in loo. She also said it would be 12 weeks. 12 weeks to what??? Treatment? Chat with consultant? Another row ensued with DH as at least it would be good to know whether we should book flights to a USA wedding at end of December but again we're in limbo. I suppose I could try and call although DH said he would try and clarify when he goes for his jizz test in a couple of weeks. Rant over!
Evening ladies, just dropping in to mark my place. No news here at Chez Bin. Back to work today, told the head about failed IVF and he was lovely about it. Said that I can take whatever time is needed for appointments etc. Looks like I won't be back IVFing for about 6 months though.
Yes I agree with 6 months + anything under that counts as an insterdiffer in my book.
Can I still be in, even though we have technically only been trying since May?
Proffers and also random as bribes. Very, very random bribes.
Talked to DM last night as she also has a retro cervix, and asked if she'd had any trouble conceiving. Oh no, she said, it always happened the first month... Except with DSis4 (when she was 40) and then it took a couple of months.
Right.... So, just me then!
Also, since I'm trespassing on everyone's foodwill anyway, can I please ask something which is totally, totally tmi....?
Thanks... Okay so DH and I dtd last night successfully for what I thnk may be the 4th time, ever. He has bad ED and the meds to fix it give him nasty side effects so we don't bother with normalpeople sex when not ttc and even then it often doesn't work.
However, when he withdrew most of the spunk was on him, at cockbase and in his pubes. Does this mean it didn't go up properly?
I can't actually believe I am posting that on the internet, but I have very little shame these days...
As for your question, the theory is that the ones are going to make it to the egg are good swimmers and will get there. So long as he was inside you when he came then you should be good. Has he had an SA?
True story for you, my best mate at school had a condition, the name of which escapes me but it was something like vagismus, which meant that the muscles of her vagina clamped shut when ever her boyfriend got near her. Therefore she wasn't able to really have penetrative sex. One day her and her boyfriend were doing everything like normal sex but without the actual penetration. Because of this they never really bothered with contraception. He came on the outside of her vagina, he never entered her at all. 9 months later .....................
I see, must be rather un romantic. - 'Darling I am ovulating and so we must have normal people sex'. - 'Quick, to the bathroom cabinet and fetch the pills. Now we must sit and wait.' Sorry to make light of the situation, after this long TTCing I have developed a rather gallows sense of humour.
As I said, so long as he was inside you at the time it should do the trick. Have you tried Conceive plus or Preseed?
Gah <runs in puffing and panting after having run all the way>. Missed the shuttle due to being engrossed in Bake Off and Don't Tell the Bride. No Kitty I don't think we'll tell the FC we're on a break in case they make us go away and come back later! Technically we are still having unprotected sex just not at the right time of the month Gill how annoying about the radiographer!Sounds like my DP though - only gets half the story!! Pip how come no more IVF for 6 months? Have to confess I was on my 1st cycle of TTC when I joined the Berries! Think most people were in the fairly early stages then though and if I'm not mistaken many of the original grads were pretty much instadiffers. How things change . Look forward to the anniversary party next month though Bunny
I'm still here too. <grabs duvet and slumps in corner so as to be unobtrusive>
sidand not sod as I keep inadvertently typing I'm glad the appointment was good and you had a consultant that you like and trust. So important!
pip 6 months sounds like a long time to wait although of course it could still happen in the meantime.
gill she gave your results to your DH and didn't even wait to see you??? That's terrible! I would be ringing up and having a word about that. And getting the full story.
Yep bunny I would have lunched her.
Actually I'm a bit ashamed to say this but I got really grumpy with a friend (quite distant friend really) over Skype yesterday. She was very openly getting frustrated when she got to cycle 3 without diffing, but was laughing at herself too. Then it worked that cycle and now she is 20 weeks. We were chatting about this and she asked about me and DP- she knows about my mmc last year. I'm not telling anyone that I got bfp for the moment so just made throwaway comment and she told us to JUST RELAX. I didn't handle it very graciously, lets just say that. And now I feel pretty bad. Trying to console myself with the thought that this might stop her from doing the same to another struggling lady - kind of like I'm actually a superhero in some way.....
