and at the risk of repeating myself...
but he IS Hippy, I don't want to have sex with him, but he is smart, clever, funny and pretty much always right... that's sexy to me
Well done BB pretty new place you have here... love the fact you've transplanted the snug so well..
luck to everyone on this thread - we need some bfps!
I think he's sexy too Jolls, as you may remember!
Oh no, I have a horrible feeling that you are talking about Simon Cowell (from brief scan of old thread). Jollster - THAT IS THE PATH TO MADNESS
Here's to lots of BFPs on this thread.
Sorry excuse my ignorance but what is EMSP Sassy?
try here TFLS I wasn't paying attention when it was discussed a few pages back (was prob separating fighting cats) but it looks like far too much sex to me...
I don't get to do that much swi really. I never seem to do 2 days in a row, despite best intentions - too much gets in the way (apart from au pairs and sainsburys delivery men!).
dh has said he will do the SMEP next month, but I'm not convinced we will be able to.
(TFLS - it's the Sperm Meets the Egg Plan -- basically you swi every other day from cd8 and then when you get a positive on an OPK you swi 3 days running.).
I do want to have sex with him!!!!!!!!
I think I bagsied him first Jollster???? You can have my no.2 for the night - Rafa Nadal???
Thanks for the new thread Beattie!!!!
Thanks Jollster - I had done a quick google but came up with stuff to do with European MPs!
Think you are using sticks Sassy. I used a CBFM and for the first cycle got days and days and days of High readings - so kept telling DH that we needed to do the deed every single day. It was only when I rang their helpline on about day 26 that they told me it was common to get repeated High readings until the monitor got used to your cycle. It was exhausting.....
Don't envy you your fighting cats Jollster!
Thanks Beattie - cross threads. Sounds a very polite method - I have a mental picture of the sperm introducing itself to the egg
Sassy, at least he got a lot of action back then - definitely not the case recently (can vaguely remember what sex was like....)
Just had a read of your thread - sounds like a pretty sympathetic response so far. Personally, I'd be tempted not to tell RL people - just so you don't have any stress from their reactions if you do go down this path. Funny how people's reaction to egg donation is different to sperm donation (appreciate it's not exactly the same thing but do wonder if the gender thing comes into it).
Sorry sass I didn't read your post properly - you are officially allowed to hang about in the snug having already done the deed today. I really hope that the feelings you had, of being fertile, were true and as we speak sperm is meeting egg . Good luck matey.
Just to add my tuppence worth - i hope this thread will be lucky for us all. May we have many BFP's and more importantly many successful 12 week scans!!
Speaking of which, lia you must be nearly 12 weeks. Good luck.
jolly & TFLS regarding my hypochondriac post in the miscarriage section - I have shown DH where the pain is in my groin area and he says they are tendons. possibly hurting cos I am walking the kids to school at the moment instead of driving (which I did before the hols). Meaning a 1 hour walk a day - he thinks it just needs to adjust to the extra walking. You couple of stalkers .
Ha ha Hippy - proof exercise can be bad for you! Are you sure they're not the result of a too vigorous SWI session?
Lia - didn't realise you were pregnant. Shamefully out of date - belated congratulations and hope everything is going well.
Evening all, lovely new snug here... just a quick message for TFLS, not sure you've noticed m'dear, but you're top of the list on t'other thread... Any twinges yet??
And Lia you're keeping so quiet, hope that scan's soon and it all goes well, I'm keeping fingers tightly crossed for you.
Hippy hang in there. Of course we're mad wishing the exhaustion of a newborn on ourselves at our ripe old ages... But for as long as that desire is there there's no stopping it or rationalising it. Don't suppose that's too helpful, sorry but my brain's rapidly turning to cotton wool. Wishing for your BFP for you and similar brain addlement soon
Jolls, hope the OBSB and pate and cheese are helping. Bet you're missing your house and counting the days to moving again... This snug v cosy though.
Greetings to Sassy, Diege, Beattie, Gum, Italian et al.
Oh and Sassy, those sticks don't always catch a surge, I fell pg one month when the sticks never picked up OV... Keep going with that every other night plan!
Hi all, I have just ploughed through the end of the other thread, my goodness you ladies say a lot!
I have written replies to some of you so I will post them and if you want to, you can ignore them!
Can I also just say, the lava lamp has a use, it is not just decorative! If you get into the habit of having it on when you fancy a bit of sex (with or without intent) eventually you can just put it on and dh will know what is on your mind! It is a bit like Maslows dogs!
But remember not to use the lava lamp for that in our snug!
Hippy Sorry you were having a bad time. IMHO you dont owe your boys a baby! I know I also stress because I would love my dd to have a sib. I have got used to the idea now that this may not happen - I cant blame myself if it does not! Trying very hard to know this for real. At the end of the day it is outside my control. I am all for being positive for things that you can control but if it outside your control then I think you need to give yourself a break! Chill out a bit. It must be incredibly stressful and if you can do yourself some favours and concentrate on other things in life, it would be good for you. You can try at the relevant times but do something other for yourself at the other times. Getting fit/fitter or taking up a new hobby or whatever you like! I think you are putting yourself under so much pressure and it is not good for you.
Muchlove please be nice and kind to yourself too. You sound sad. I know what the pressure of having a baby can put on a marriage. At one time I felt if it were a choice between a new baby and my DH I would go for the baby. Now, I know I would go for DH. I would love a baby but I dont want to be without DH and dont want to be a single mum. I dont say if it is meant to be, it will be - that sounds like there is a great plan for each individual person to have X number of babies. IMHO I think God has a general plan for us to be productive and happy. If you dont believe anything spiritual, you could say the universe wants us to be happy and productive! I guess if we are going to have that baby then they will come. We can help by having sex at the right time, but all the anxiety doesnt help! Don't want to cast aspersions on your psychic if you have a baby girl - great but I don't personally believe that psychics can see the future. It must be tempting to want to hang on to that even if you don't really believe it. I think you should definitely pursue your dreams and go for it but also go for a few other things at the same time and take the pressure off. I know it sounds glib but I think it is possible to try and remove yourself a bit from it (IMHO). You are important, and your soul, it is far too valuable. I really hope it will happen for you but I hope you will find some peace along the way. That is what I am trying to do. It is 'easier' for me in that each month is pretty much not going to happen - I have my eyes set on May and not each month! But if it doesnt happen in May, it is the end of the road. Anyway, Muchlove, just wanted to reply because you sounded sad - God bless you. You are under pressure; hope you will find ways to let some of the pressure off.
Beatiebow I know you were a bit down too so I am sorry and I hope you too will be able to concentrate on this but also on other stuff and not feel too stressed! Hope the progesterone does the job for you. Hope you work out the dose for your pesseries; dont want to over dose on them!
Jolly hope your little one is better now. I know how you feel about feeling conventional! I always notice when people have more than one child, family units, how big the gap is between kids etc! A friend at the supermarket last week saw me in school hours, she was there with her two pre-school kids and said something like Oh youre all on your lonesome as DD was at school. It was just a throwaway line but I wanted to shout I dont want to be on my lonesome! People say silly things. Hope I have not said anything silly to anyone, and if I have said anything sill here, my apologies.
Will post something funny in a minute!
Oh Italian, I think the snug is a sex free zone isn't it? I'm not sure I'll want to lounge on the sofa if there's been SWI going on...
TFLS are you close to delivering your little one? How exciting. Can't wait to hear the news.
Well, FF gave me a "good" score for my SWI efforts this month. I don't think I've ever got an "excellent" score. I think you'd have to shag twice a day for 7 days running. Which is all very well when you are 25, but just isn't going to happen with a DH turning 50 this year!
I think I only got a "good" when we conceived our LO, so it'll have to do. At least I know I Oed. No real symptoms yet, but it is far too early. I think I may test on Saturday, which would be 9dpo, because we are going out for dinner with friends, and they will think it strange if I don't drink...Trouble is, if I get a negative test, I'll still be thinking "It's too early to know", so it's pointless really! Just talked myself out of it. But I do have mountains of internet tests so...
Yesterday I spent hours in the garden, for the first time in ages. Now that spring is here, I need to tidy up the garden and get some summer vegies in. Whilst out there I decided I should try to make something my focus for the tww, to help the time fly and so I'm not totally focused on symptoms etc. So I decided that I'd pour all my energy into the garden in this next tww. Then next month (if there is a tww) I'll concentrate on something else. There's plenty that I'd like to get done. I'm thinking about redecorating my LO's bedroom, which really is our study, so has dark green walls and burgundy curtains. I feel it is time to lighten it up and make it his.
So who is in the tww with me? I'm losing track around here.
I dont want to bring you all down so have a laugh at me, I am watching Friends from a Gazillion years ago and it is the one where Ross and Rachel break up and I LURVE David Swimmer and feel so sorry for him but think Rachel is mad for dumping him! Yes, I am sad and mad and it was like 15 years ago and ALSO it is not real!
I get weighed on Wednesday and feel positive for Rosemary Conley! Just one more week after that and I move to the 1400 a day calories diet instead do of the 1200 (it is only another two weeks and after that there is a more tailored to me diet, this is just the big boost at the beginning to get me going). So in about 10 days I can have a mini Twix a day! I bet you though I was going to say I could have a big Boost!
Jolly we went to the seaside this weekend, it was lovely, must be nice to live by the sea
Sassy yes, babies are cute, we can all agree. I went to visit a friend with a baby last week and I would definitely agree, from my research, she was cute!
But other peoples babies are not always cute! So wishing you all cute or un-cute babies but all healthy and arriving sometime soon!
Dashing off to acupuncture but just to say thanks for the prompt Alba - oh my god!
