Kuma signing in for duty. Actually, I'm at work today boo but I'm going on holiday tomorrow! Thought I'd be organized and booked our airport taxi yesterday and the bloody thing arrived this morning instead. Nice early wake up call at 3am.

I'm on my phone atm but if someone wants to add me to the list

Kuma - 39, TTC 13 cycles, high FSH, low AMH, low antral count so generally a bit stuffed. Next NHS FC apptmt in March, likely to go private before then.

kitty you're not forgotten, but you're a visitor not a resident now wink .

CD23 here and still no +opk. I did hope that the clomid would have made me Ov even though I didn't have a proper AF sad .

Anyway. <starts reassembling the yellow brick road>

Another one here who has eaten far too much, too much bad stuff has given me an IBS flare up I think, can't tell if its IBS or AF getting ready to start though as due in next few days and then.....

Marking place. Need to be sure i don't miss the next lot of BFPs when they arrive.
Bunny when does stabbing commence?

Bunnygirlie Fri 27-Dec-13 10:38:23

Wouldn't be the same without you professor merk, are you feeling better now?

CD28 today so stabbing will start any day now, scary!!! fshock

Thunderpantsarego Fri 27-Dec-13 10:50:01

Marking place too, Happy Christmas ladies! Hope you've all been having a lovely time. ODing on food is a requisite too innit?

Just the same I'm afraid. Not really looking forward to the long trip up North to the Berry homeland tomorrow!

Morning all. Lovely new home - thanks Bunny. Hope it'll be a lucky one and we'll all be moving out before too long.
Just been to have a cracked filling repaired so waiting to get the feeling back in my face so I can start stuffing again grin. Heading to Dublin on Sunday for New Year so got lots of goodies to eat up before then!
Barking how's that YBR coming along? May join you on it in a bid to be more positive in the new year, despite the shitty visit to the FC last week.
Have a good day all!

yorkiebilb Fri 27-Dec-13 12:16:14

Funkymonk, 31 (32 almost here). TTC since Nov 2012. MC July 2013 (5+2). MMC Dec 2013 (identified at 8+2). 2 lots of medical management but bean still in there refusing to leave. In limbo until 8th Jan when will prob be ercp. A miserable sniveller.

Oh god, that's horrible Funky, can't believe they're making you wait so long for an ERPC. thanks

BlindKitty Fri 27-Dec-13 15:43:35

funky sorry to hear this. Hopefully things will happen themselves before the 8th xxx

funkymonk Fri 27-Dec-13 17:12:49

Sorry. I should have explained a bit more. I had bleeding and clots for a few hours after first misoprostol and then nothing at all. Had second lot of misoprostol on 23rd as they said (without doing scan) that the bleeding should continue for a lot longer (like 2 weeks). Nothing at all happened after 2nd lot. They said I need to wait until 8th Jan (3 weeks after first lot of meds) and if still getting positive tests they will scan and see if ercp needed. If there is no further bleeding then I can't imagine how the test will be anything other than positive after the minimal bleeding I had. Grrr. Sorry to come on and rant without catching up with you all properly.

In other news, I am currently raging as i found out yesterday that a girl I know who has a BMI of 41 and has health problems linked to this such as constant shortness of breath... ACCIDENTALLY got pregnant and is now 18 weeks. HOW is this possible! An incredibly unhealthy person who is successfully carrying a child she hadn't even planned. Aaarrrggghhh!!!

Hope all you lovely ladies are well and are going into 2014 with a more positive outlook than me!

Bunnygirlie Fri 27-Dec-13 17:21:29

Oh funky that's rotten, so sorry to hear that sweetie flowers

And grrrrrrr to the unhealthy pg wench fsad

funky I'd seen on the mc forum you were worried you hadn't had enough bleeding but I didn't realise you were still in limbo, that's horrible sad . Hope everything is sorted very soon thanks .
YBR not quite done yet Happy, afraid I fell asleep on the job. I'm making it into a pretty pattern like crazy paving though, thought it might cheer everyone up grin .

BlueBirdy Fri 27-Dec-13 18:00:32

Hi everyone, gosh Funky sad not nice at all thanks.
I had IVF appt today but planning appt is only in 8 weeks or so, but then it will be straight into ICSI. Good luck Bunny, and good news on the private option Kuma

mrswalker13 Fri 27-Dec-13 18:14:54

Found you. Haven't really caught up, apologies. Feeling very bleak here; waiting for news, nothing forthcoming. I suspect progress will be made with rheumatology before FC but feels pointless because I can't be given the treatment I need while ttc. F#*king immune system disaster area. I need put down.

mrsw, 35, ttc may13, low progesterone, jiggered immune system
