I'm sorry, Funky, I really can't face going through and doing all the name highlighting! I'm sat here having not planned any literacy lessons for the next week so I really shouldn't be time wasting! Adding myself on even though I don't have a huge amount to say at the moment:

TheRainDrops Mon 05-May-14 22:37:36

Woop, thanks for new thread funky! Look at that lovely long list - definitely time to get some (ideally all) of us off to the copter!

beaky the shopping trip was a success thank the lord! Only had to endure one hungriness related grumble so all good. grin

Reflexology is the foot one isn't it? I love the idea of it and it seems more scientific than acupuncture (although I've generally only heard positive things about that too) but I really hate having my feet touched!

Watching a tres bizarre documentary on C4 with Rupert Everett about prostitution. It's a proper shock blush shock

beakybeak Mon 05-May-14 22:37:38

Lovely new thread, Funky thanks.

<drags in sofa of seepage for the IVF'ers and some penis models for sniffing in the hope of an instant bfp> grin

tigerdog Mon 05-May-14 22:49:19

Ooh hello new thread!

rain I'm watching that too. Very bizarre...although I'm sure lots of people you'd never expect have a few dodgy secrets in their closets!

Back to work tomorrow, boohoo!

happylass Mon 05-May-14 23:47:53

Hello all and thanks for lovely new home funky. Just a quick check in to mark my place.
I'm in a strop cos DP would not let me watch aforementioned documentary as he'd didn't want to see 'blokes in a wig wanking'.
Hope everyone is ok. Thinking of you Otters, Barking and all those IVFing flowers

funkymonk Tue 06-May-14 00:31:15

Haha happy!

I've been such an air head lately. I've messed up the name of this thread somehow. I had put "the one where the berries cease to exist when we all get diffed after a spate of waxy knickers and ..." It's somehow gone from when I copied it over after the first booboo I made. Ffs. I'll be pissed off every time I see the title. Grrr. Can we abandon this one and move to a proper one? I promise not to be involved in any creation of new threads again. My recent typo's etc mean I should be the village idiot of Elderberry Pavlova'ville.

Boodle, come back and give us an update soon. Are there more ivf plans?

HampshireBlues Tue 06-May-14 06:44:17

Just book marking my place; love the new title! Will be back later to put in stats.

beakybeak Tue 06-May-14 08:43:08

Did you do a new one Funky? I don't mind if you want to redo it but it's fine as it is if not grin

funkymonk Tue 06-May-14 08:52:07

No I didn't. I'll need a laptop rather than using my phone. I only realised last night when I was using phone in bed! Don't know if I can be arsed now! Have a good day all! X

winohhh Tue 06-May-14 09:53:02

Just marking my place! Thanks for the new thread funky. I did wonder why we ceased to exist! Only do a new thread if you can be bothered. I like the title.

BecauseIsaidS0 Tue 06-May-14 11:00:54

Hello Berries!!! I have a big day at work today so apologise for the absence...promise to report back tonight. Big squishy hugs toeveryone!

TheRainDrops Tue 06-May-14 12:30:01

funky I did wonder if maybe the title was insinuating we had all drowned in wax and seepage!! <boak>

I stopped watching the doc about half way through as it was bed time (rock'n'rooooolllllll!!!) but might finish it off on 4OD. I can't believe Rupert Everett could just sit there while some bloke stuck a dildo up his bott for the camera!

So it's Tuesday today right? 4 day weeks always leave me confused! confused

nolly3 Tue 06-May-14 13:46:54

Nice one funky.

sorry for the absence - I spent most of bank holiday asleep in the garden, absolute bliss.

Anyway thinking of you otters - so sorry. and thinking of you too barking and Lady and bushy, there's so much going on atm!

the great hack you refer to rain - I def missed that one. Is that why all the name changes too? I thought my brain had melted with jet lag so am relieved about that.

off to try acupuncture this evening for the first time. god i hope she doens't start talking bollocks as am looking forward to a nice lie down with no new age chat.

Re seepage, I had to have one when i had my HSG - didn't you guys? it was pretty nasty. I must have looked horrified because the nurse gave me a hug and nearly made me cry. So embarrasing.

nolly3 Tue 06-May-14 13:51:51

and congrats on job to barking and on embies to any ivfers i've missed.

We just foudn out we're moving cities so now facing a few weeks of trying to switch FCs without getting back down to the bottom of the list...sad

lumen Tue 06-May-14 14:21:38

Argh, I appear to have caught a cold from my delightful snotty little nephew. At least this month we are not ttc naturally before I start DR drugs the week after next, so hurry up home time and lempsip and my duvet. hmm

Sleek new thread! Thanks funky!

Sorry about your news otters and hope you're as ok as can be. We're here when you are ready to come back. flowers

nolly good luck with the acu tonight. If he/she starts waffling on while the pins are in, do tell them that you'd like to use the time to 'meditate' - they generally leave you alone when they are in though.

Who had a bum thingy after the hsg? I didn't - just got given a great bloody dose of antibiotics!

How are the ivf berries doing? How's everyone else? I've had today off to try to sort some wedding stuff - but shoes, accesories etc - and failed miserably so I've just got home. Avoiding the gym tonight even though I really shouldn't. Sheesh.

RevoltingPeasant Tue 06-May-14 18:00:09

Hello all!

Still thinking of you if you are reading otters

lady what's going on? You must be about 11 dpo now? How do you feel?

am cutting down on sugar here and DH under strict instructions to ready himself for shag weekend!

Also have a new boiler so hooooot showerssssss aplenty in store. But not for DH, his sperm can't overheat.

TheRainDrops Tue 06-May-14 18:58:54

Quick q about SA samples! MrP is going to be dispatching his pot of baby batter to the hospital on Friday morning - I'd planned on a quick last chance shag tomorrow night (CBFM says I ov'ed on Saturday) but is that too close to the test? Could go again tonight (6 nights in a row <wince face>) but I fancy a night off! grin

beakybeak Tue 06-May-14 19:17:46

Rain my FC say nothing for 3 days before sa, so I'd maybe do last tonight if you feel up to it. And wow 6 days in a row! <congratulates rain on superb efforts>

Feather have you bit got shoes or accessories yet then? So exciting for you though!

Nolly I didn't get a bum bullet after my HSG? Just sent packing basically!

How's things Lady Bushy and HB? Hope you are all doing ok.

rain we were told between 2 and 5 days since last 'release' was ideal (for when DP has to provide his sample) as you have to get rid of the dead swimmers but not empty the supply completely iyswim...

I started bleeding! Finally - after 5 days of spotting angry . Scan this morning (3rd time lucky) and started stabbing tonight grin . This show is officially on the road!!! grin grin grin

Bunnygirlie Tue 06-May-14 19:34:01

Marking my place for the next BFP cluster!

barking yay to the new job and whoop for the jabs starting! wishing you lots of luck!

bushy lady how's the wait going?

P.s. Love the new title! Glad the weird titles are still going since I managed to get in the copter

Come get in the chopper soon, we need new recruits smile

<waves at my chums and hi newbies>

greatbigbushybeard Tue 06-May-14 19:47:20

Well done barking bet you were pleased to see af!! How have you found your first injection? My nurse said to pinch the skin with one hand and inject with other. She also said if you put the needle far enough in it hurts less as there's more nerve endings near the edge of your skin.

This link sums up how I feel about the talk of the Rupert Everett doc :

m.youtube.com/watch?v=C_S5cXbXe-4

happy you need to discover 4od to watch the rest of it.

I'm good thanks, first day back not too bad, really bloated by the end of it though!! I'm having to leave most of my clothes in wardrobe as not enough stuff is loose enough!! I flipping look like I'm up the duff! Had one curious question about my time off last week, wasn't quite expecting it so don't think I replied the best, just said about having problems with heavy periods and that it's a bit un dignified having people look at your lady bits but they think it'll work this time... Not totally fibbage!!

Thanks for new thread funky, title is fine.

rain up to you with sa. My dh left it 3 days, last dtd sat, sa for ec on tues and it was a good sample. They do say 2-5 so if you want could do one last tom but if you did ov Saturday then egg will be gone now so not much point?? You could just trying sniffing it!!

God all this talk of bum bullets is making me laugh so much!!

lumen do try and get rid of your cold so you are back to normal before sniffing as having a cold, sneezing etc will affect the effectiveness of your nasal spray.
