Just Shagging Part 10; No science or skill, JS at will!(990 Posts)
Welcome to the lazy way to make a baby, part 10!!
Just Shagging (JS) is ttc using ye olde shagging & crossing fingers methods, our tools are your body, OHs body..urm some wine & lots of finger crossing.
All are welcome, most leave happy & upduffed! The last two threads have been very successful; thread 8 had 5 BFPs, thread 9 had 6 BFPs....so were due 7 BFPs here, which means we all need to get shagging.
We dont do; OPKS, taking temp or harcore charting...although it is nice to know when ERTD is due.
Which brings us to acronyms & slang;
AF=ERTD (Evil Red Tide Of Doom).
Getting a BFP soon after joining thread= Doing a kitten
You=Are a viroid, no idea why but it goes long back to the dawn of time.
DTD=JS or donning the Shag cape.
POAS=Sometimes referred to as PIAR (Pissing In A Ramekin), as were such classy ladies
Here is last thread for proof that it works, and that you can't shut us up
Here is the Graduates thread!
Ha ha, south, the men in our lives live the benefit of trying for a baby...I reckon mine will be attempting every night soon!
Bless him...pig in muck now he's worked out I'll go for it every time it is offered as he LOVES JSing!
the month i got my BFP we didnt really shag that much stepped it up around DP birthday and when i thought i was ovulating and that was about it
Frying, well done on the loss so far.
south, good luck EOD! We'll be EOD next month too...
I caved and PIAR this morning (5 days early, hoping that effects thing) and it was BFN, needed to know before I open the bubbly on Sunday night to celebrate Italy's win
Nicola Glad OH is happy with trying!!
I wish DH & I wanted to JS at the same-ish times, I prefer afternoons or night before sleep, he likes it in the morning, does anyone else have the same problem?
Not posted for ages as I've been really busy transcribing interviews for my PhD. Oh. The. Joy.
JS loads this month so have been quietly hopeful that we've been successful. ERTD is due tomorrow. I caved and did a FR test this morning. BFN. .
After the extra 2ww last month and all the BFNS I told myself I was absolutely not going to test and now I remember why. From now on I am absolutely not going to test until I'm late. BFN are too sad. Not a good way to start the day.
Sorry for venting but OH and I aren't talking this morning so couldn't tell him, plus he doesn't really get it. Suppose I should get ready to go out, I have a school Fauré to set up!
Well, the last time I had sex, it was 6 days ago. Now im going away for the weekend, rubbish! Roll on Monday and jsing
Sorry for your BFN, GuineaPigs :-(
And, Woman, I prefer night during the week, and it is normally morning or afternoon at weekends. It kind of works...he would have it whenever though!
<waves> at Guinea! Sorry about your BFN, a horrible way to start the day, I've been mooching & wondering where I've gone wrong...
Hope you & OH sort things about soon & if you're outside setting up today it stays dry! x
south, that will be my new rule...2 weeks late before I test. Think I might stop buying massive bundles of internet cheapy sticks so I'm not temped earlier.
Nicola, I wish DH was like your OH! He used to be but he's so tired recently (don't resent him for it, understand) it's very rare that we're on the same page...
frying, hope you're going away somewhere nice?
What's everyone up to this weekend?
Sorry to hear the news of the BFN's...
Also feeling a bit blue - haven't done any JS since Sunday as we are both very emotional creatures and just can't do it if we're not in the mood or feeling tired, so I feel like its another missed month.
I don't do PIAR but I still feel just as down when ERTD turns up. This month its almost as if I know there will be an ERTD because I'm sure we haven't had enough sex.
Our usual habits are lots of JS at the weekend (i.e. don't tend to surface till lunchtime on Saturday and Sunday) but I'm a bit concerned that may not be good enough if my ovulation is happening midweek, when we tend to be busy and tired.
Have just read my post and decided its too depressing - need a positive attitude - so am going to and think about how to have fun on our Saturday morning sesh tomorrow
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend...
Stuck, to paraphrase the Love Gods/baby-making force that is Take That; 'It only takes a minute stuck, to make a baby..make a bayyyybbbbbeeee'.
Have fun tomorrow morning
horse that is quality!!!! I am heading home now and will be putting Take That on full blast!!!
so update on SIL dont think its all the serious as shes been in 3 days now and they havent even done the lumber puncture yet and only sent her for a scan today. when i was critically ill after DS things were done straight away but who knows?
To be honest, Woman, I only started saying yes to JSing midweek recently as a) I felt bad for always saying no due to being exhausted from work and b) I knew we would need to up our game to get me up duffed and decided to get him used to it before it was essential so he didn't decide I just wanted sperm, ha ha.
He would do it whenever, even after a long day at work, and he has a physical job. Puts me with my pen pushing to shame! :-/
We were reminiscing over the multiple times a day from when we got together recently sigh. Doesn't happen now! :-(
It seems stress from work / life and extreme tiredness is prolific in here.
Maybe no news / action is good news, something? Fx, anyway.
Goodness you move quick. I'm keeping up with reading but have nowhere near enough time to post at the moment.
Sorry for those with BFNs. I'm going to PIAR tomorrow coz we're going to visit family this week and I want to know if I can drink or not. ERTD would be due tuesday so it's too early but I actually cope better if I test early and keep testing, kind of breaks it to me gently, and before the worst of the ERTD hormones!
Have a good weekend all
yeah thats what i think no major action is a good thing
Sorry about BFN's too, I am also of the opinion that best not to test till properly late, I only ever keep a couple of test kits too, of course its easier to tell when you are late if you have a regular cycle!!!
DH left this am and wont be back till Monday, missing him now... We had a good go of it last week, just hope i dont miss the boat this weekend! To be honest, Iv had to push my DH to do it so often already, he likes it regular but not EOD and certainly not ED, he feels like he's 'on empty' (He would kill me if he knew I was telling you all, ooops) Anyone have similar problem?
Practising I read your post as 'my DH left his arm at work this morning' ...think I've finally lost it!!
OH and I have made up and celebrated with a JS, though just for fun not function! Hope you all get lots of JS in over the weekend.
South it is my DS school fayre (should it be fair or fayre?)...silly phone autocorrect. Tomorrow I shall mostly be face painting
Today I'm posting from my moms, bathed in sunlight, near the sea. Now that I've made you all - hopefully- jealous, I have nothing to add.
I'm in the north east until Monday, Monday night we've got a family thing, so will bump uglies on Tuesday probably.
I don't know how to describe this without sounding crazy, but here goes.
The day before I found out I was pregnant with ds, I was all hormonal and weepy listening to music, I was crying at Green Day!
As I've told you all, I'm massively hormonal. Yesterday on the way here, I was in floods of tears at the following songs
Don't be a hero - no idea the singer
Jenny don't be hasty - Paulo nutini
Deliver us - song from Prince of Egypt
Walking on sunshine - Katrina and the waves.
Odd songs to cry about.
The implant was removed on 12th, js on 19th, no idea when my period is gonna start. no idea when to test. or if I should.
Can't work out if I want to be pregnant or am hoping for my period.
i was extremely hormonal for about a week before my BFP crying at four weddings and gavin and stacey! woke up the day before ERTD was due wanting coffee so i tested and BFP
frying, maybe you were crying at your bad taste in music
Crossing fingers here that a BFP is on the horizon, would explain the lack of period after implant removal? I guess it would be worth waiting another week or 2 to test, but I luff PIAR so I'd test sooner (which is why I'm always so <sadfaced> when I get my BFN's)!
Hope you're having a wonderful day, not jealous at all of the sunshine. Not at all.
Going on from Fryings crazy sounding; I feel so nauseous today I haven't felt like this since early days of last pg. And, concrete evidence, I had a dream about having twins last night...I'll probably get ERTD in an hour or 2 & be really, really pissed off.
Practising, hope you have a nice DH-less weekend. I'll ask DH how he feels about running on empty for you!
Bloody hell...I just got emotional watching this:
And I'm not even post-OV yet. Bonkers hormones! :-)
Ha ha thanks Woman!
well, I poas, bfn. I'm an odd mix of happy and sad
All these BFN's, this thread is not working the magic just yet. Perhaps we will have a landslide of BFP's further on down the line
ERTD is almost done so the
only drinking at weekends not drinking kicks in from Monday. In a strange way I feel extremely grown up making such sensible decisions and choices, its a rarity I can assure you! Will then aim for EOD but we also struggle with the "being in the right mood" thing. I am keen that we don't become obsessive and stop enjoying it though DH could well take to it like a man obsessed so he can get back to mid-week drinking again!
We are also prone to staying up too late and then being too tired. I am a dreadful morning person and I struggle to raise the enthusiasm for morning JSing (though it can be a pleasant change once in a while) particularly as DH leaves for work just after 7am
Anyway we have just got back from DS's school fair and netball tournament with a bottle of wine and a 6 month season ticket to the local stately home. DH has gone to
get rid of the evidence do the recycling and DS is reading "Where Willy went" a crass attempt to introduce an 8 year old to <whispers> sex. We are quite open but the subject has never really come up, and I feel increasingly anxious about DS not being properly informed but cannot quite bring it up myself. So having fielded 50 questions about sperm, we are out to play football in the garden anything to get the topic off of sperm
