Old Fred here

Here we go Brookers, it's been a long year with lots of BFPs and newborn snuggles for the Brookers. We're just a sleigh-ride away from 2013, when the rest of us will get our get our 12 week scans (because of course we will all have BFPs under the christmas tree this year!)

So come all ye brookers, it's tinsel and baubels all the way!

sweetie if it makes you feel any better I still struggle with pregnancy announcements and I'm nearly 19 weeks!!! There's a girl at work who told me she'd had a positive pregnancy test in the same sentence as congratulating me on my pregnancy! I actually wanted to throttle her!!!!!

face 6 weeks, feeling bloated AND sick, it really is looking good for you!! When is the earliest they'll scan you?

Brooking for all my lovely rat smackers

cartoontrickster Wed 23-Jan-13 22:16:49

its a week today sparks they wouldn't see me any sooner because of how inconclusive and worrying early scans can be. but at least at 7wks they should be able to see a hb and everything do we will pretty much have the answer there and then.

has keep wee'd on her stick yet?!

keepitgoing Thu 24-Jan-13 02:31:19

Er, sweetie, we're all like that, and worse!

Sparks, can I ask why you still find it hard?

Face, 6 days now x

Poas for me is tomorrow. No symptoms. Am so in love with my niece. Have asked a few requisite questions of my sis, but it seems we're mutually not talking about me... Keep staring at bump...

cartoontrickster Thu 24-Jan-13 06:39:46

no symptoms = diffed! fingers crossed.

SweetieTime Thu 24-Jan-13 06:54:29

Aw keep i meant to ask how things were going with sis. I thought the talk would have taken place. Glad you are enjoying time with little niece, did the hat fit? I hope you find an agreeable stick tomorrow, I will pop in nice and early for the results.

Withalittlesparkle Thu 24-Jan-13 08:45:43

keep it's only the announcements when people say how easy they found it! 'All we did was drop the contraception and ta da' I know it's completely irrational but I know so many people have/still struggling both on the net and in RL that I just can't see how it's fair!! I know Itakes me a nutter but that's ok

I have my fingers totally crossed for you to POAS!!! Brook brook brooking!!!

NoMaybeAboutIt Thu 24-Jan-13 09:33:56

Sweetie it's completely normal to feel like that. But you will be the one announcing one day, I just know it smile

Keep 1 day to go, how exciting! Sorry you didn't manage to have 'the chat' with your sis. Glad you're having fun with your niece though!

Geek hw you feeling after a hard days labour?!

Hope you're feeling ok today Face

Solars Thu 24-Jan-13 11:07:19

Sweetie rant away, it's what we're here for and can totally understand how you feel.

Keep how old is your niece? They are very cute when they are toddlers. Looking forward to your confirmation tomorrow. <pulls up a chair next to Keeps bathroom door>

Geek hope the farming is going well.

Maybe how are you doing lovely?

Not long now 'til your scan Face

I have just called my consultants secretary to ask about the referral and whether the letter has been sent. Apparently she still hasn't got the dictation and this is now almost 2 weeks on! She said it's quite likely to be done in the next week. Hmmm...

NoMaybeAboutIt Thu 24-Jan-13 11:43:19

Solars it's so frustrating isn't it. Me referral was meant to be sent before Christmas. I chased it and found out it hadn't been sent. Just got a call from our clinic though and they have the letters and have booked MrM in for 4th March. There is no waiting list for IVF but they need him to see the urologist as he will need SSR. Just seems so far away!

Solars Thu 24-Jan-13 12:44:01

Maybe that's great you've got a date for MrM, things could move on quite quickly from then and remember February is a short month smile

NoMaybeAboutIt Thu 24-Jan-13 12:54:43

How right you are Solars grin I have never known myself wish away time quite as much as I am at the moment!!

ControlGeek Thu 24-Jan-13 15:14:56

Hallo brookers, just back from a hard day on the farm grin

I got spat on by a llama so will post properly after I've cleaned myself up and put everything I am wearing in the wash!

NoMaybeAboutIt Fri 25-Jan-13 00:11:16

Oh my goodness confused grin biscuit amazing

keepitgoing Fri 25-Jan-13 01:53:23


BeedlesPineNeedles Fri 25-Jan-13 05:45:38

Sorry to hear that keep Could it still be too early? Or is that just wishful thinking?

cartoontrickster Fri 25-Jan-13 07:05:05

noooooo! that cannot possibly be right keepsad

NewYearNewBoo Fri 25-Jan-13 07:24:28

Keep I am sorry sad thanks

SweetieTime Fri 25-Jan-13 07:49:45

Aw keep so sorry to hear that. Hope it is just a late implanted, just give it a few days to see if the witch turns up. Hope you are ok xx

Solars Fri 25-Jan-13 08:40:06

Oh Keep I'm so sorry, please be kind to yourself thanks I was so hoping for you this morning, I got an excited call from a cousin yesterday who found out she is pg after going through an ivf cycle and was hoping there'd be more good news today from you too. I am hoping as others are that it could still be early.

NoMaybeAboutIt Fri 25-Jan-13 08:44:41

Oh Keep I'm so sorry lovely. I too am hoping its just too early x

BeedlesPineNeedles Fri 25-Jan-13 13:09:29

solars that's good news about your cousin. Was it her first attempt with IVF?

ControlGeek Fri 25-Jan-13 13:13:22

oh keep I'm so sorry. Damn those pesky pee sticks. Could it still be too early though? If AF is still staying away then there's hope.

Maybe good news about MrM's appointment! It must seem ages away to you now, but the time will fly by. At least there won't be any additional waiting time for IVF for you.

solars what is it with these consultants and their appointments? I'm so sorry you're having to play the waiting game too. It would be so much easier if we could just book these things online ourselves.

sweetie non-trying pg announcements are so poo. It's ok to be upset/angry/frustrated. We're here for you so rant all you need.

Very very sore and tired today, went to bed at 8pm last night, after sticking some farm photos on fb. Just glad it's the last day of the week today and I can almost have a lie in tomorrow. The farm was amazing fun, but incredibly hard work. Yesterday I got to manhandle a sheep, ride a goat (accidentally) and wear alpaca spit grin

NoCupcakesOrCocktails Fri 25-Jan-13 14:56:21

Keep I'm so sorry about the BFN, I hope it's just too early. How are you feeling?

Maybe that's such good news about the appointment. March will be here before we know it. I can't believe it's nearly the end of jan already.

Geek I love Llamas, we have some at a nearby park (in fact it's where we got married & I really wanted a wedding pic with them but the farm part was closed that day grin). I'm so jealous, hope your having a lovely day.

Sweetie/Sparkle I hate the ridiculously fertile pregnancy announcements. It's so smug and condescending angry.

Solars that's fantastic news about your cousin, I love hearing IVF success stories.

Ive had my first interview and I got offered the job, it's only adhoc as and when they need someone. I'm really happy though as with that experience I stand a much better chance of getting a full time job in that area. The interview was intense with lots of difficult scenarios so was good practice for my interview on tues.

My poor grandad is still not doing well, his memory has gone massively downhill and he is so confused. The hospital staff have said unless there is a vast improvement he will probably be unable to go home when he is medically better. They have told us to start thinking about care homes. It's so distressing as until last week he had no memory loss, it's just so sudden.
