Ok we are starting a new BESH thread / where do we want it here or infertility ?

Shall we make BESH questionnaire optional to obtain more recruits?

EricaJ Tue 24-May-16 08:49:24

Hello!

I think infertility is probably better.

And questionnaire optional is a good idea! Well done, Blue!!

blue2014 Tue 24-May-16 10:33:25

I'll try to get it done later but if I don't someone else will have to take over as I'm away from tomorrow

One point worth considering is that the mind numbing thread on infertility is essentially the BESH by another name (they are brilliant!)

It's so difficult cos I don't know what we are - I joined BESH never thinking I was actually infertile just that it was taking a fucking long time - did we mostly turn out to be IVF neededing barrens? confused

Ooh Erica - vitamin c for Mr E is useful too

Marking my spot.

Had my scan this morning, 1 follicle of 19.5mm about ready to pop and another of 14.5mm. I'm under instruction to take my trigger tonight and get shagging for the next few days!

I wont have time to start a new Fred before hols so I'll either leave it to others or will do it in 2 weeks time

CaveMum Wed 25-May-16 18:22:07

Have a lovely holiday Blue.

I'm happy to stick around in conception, but understand if others feel best to move to Infertility. I feel a bit of a fraud here as it is!

Did the trigger last night so next step is a progesterone test next week to confirm ovulation and then wait and see. I hate this part, the tiny glimpse of hope is a bastard.

blue2014 Fri 27-May-16 10:07:32

I hate hope too cave - I suppose I shouldn't it's the only thing that got me through but I do much better as a pessimist!

Toe holds for you Hag

Lurking place marker grin

Oh move to the barren ghetto PLEASE! I can't face scrolling through fucking "WILL ACUPUNCTURE MAKE ME HAVE TWINS?" bullshit threads!

Fuck their optimism.

Good luck with your sexing cave, niiiiice and spontaneous eh! I recommend a feather tickler, with added bonus that mid shag you will need to rescue it from the cats who will otherwise destroy it.

blue2014 Fri 27-May-16 16:09:47

Hey Icy, good to see you wineI think your thread is full of BESH smile I've been lurking there for ages - hope all is going well Hag

I had a browse through pregnancy, conception and ante-natal threads earlier - they all drive me fucking crazy. I had forgotten the "this is my 5th cycle and I'm going crazy" and the "honeymoon baby" people actually existed. Even in my 'current condition' I still want to whack them in the face hmm I love the infertility threads, full of amazing witty women ... and still I would probably never have joined the BESH has it been on the infertility thread - I really thought I was just a slow starter hmm

icy121 Fri 27-May-16 22:18:42

Christ even the barrens on conception threads are insufferable:

We had IVF for unexplained infertility. We weren't offered IUI as success rates aren't great and only marginally better than sex. I didn't find IVF that invasive and the process was straightforward. Got pregnant on first cycle and am now 36 weeks pregnant

Chu, it's EASY.

blue2014 Sat 28-May-16 09:01:17

See ... We always need a BESH, if only for the swearing

SinkyMalinks Sat 28-May-16 17:45:48

Fuck yeah. BESH swear like champions.

Hi hags. Am back on the shagging with intent wagon (did we not have an acronym for that?) along with a few of the CRESH. Can safely say that previous diffment has not "reset" my PCOS. Of course it fucking hasn't.

Would be happy to come back to a fred if welcome. Promise to be neither smug nor relaxed. I might be insufferable, but that's just me..

blue2014 Sat 28-May-16 18:03:29

Yes! More BESH PESH CRESH - one big happy fucking grumpy thread works for me (clearly seeing as I haven't seemed to go elsewhere as yet)

CaveMum Sat 28-May-16 20:12:46

I am menkulling like a loon here. I'm 3 days post-ov FFS! When will I learn <slaps self with a turbot>

blue2014 Sun 29-May-16 09:35:11

Oh Cave, if we had 'learnt' from all of this most of us would have given up years ago. We all need to be a bit menkul some all of the times

SinkyMalinks Sun 29-May-16 10:31:32

I've said it before on the fb group, but I'm like some sad labrador with phantom pregnancy symptoms. i should definitely know better..

Good luck staying sane cave
(Tis hard to remember not to use your real name..)

EricaJ Tue 31-May-16 09:07:04

Cave Good luck! And hi Slinky, I don't think we have met! smile

These are my last two cycles before IVF in July, I think we have done the necessary TTC this month (oh, the romance!!) so now I just need to go totally mental symptom spotting for two weeks, cry for two days when the fucking droid arrives and then repeat. The extra stress of IVF does not bear thinking for now!

Icy how is it going?

Have a great holiday Blue!

icy121 Tue 31-May-16 19:25:37

Trying to wean off MN for a few weeks whilst waiting for FET cycle, which will be commence day 21 of next cycle. On basis I'm on day 3, that'll be about 50 days then. Wehey. We've got 7 embryos from a freeze all cycle and ohss is calming down now. Was pretty gutted it was freeze all as ugh just sooo looong.... However. It's FUCKING exciting being able to just go to bed without having to jack up on buserelin.

Unfortunately I'm now assuming that FET will work obvs. I know of so many IVF pregnancy/babies IRL atm so I'm very much in the "huh! Why NOT me, then" danger zone.

Told oh we will ironidiff this month off anyway.

I'd quite like to spend the next month under a GA to just make it go quicker.

SinkyMalinks Tue 31-May-16 20:58:13

Good luck with reigning in the menkul hags.

(Hi erica - don't think we have!)

cooperG Fri 03-Jun-16 20:44:18
