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!

solars what fab fab fab news for your cousin. One cancelled iui and one failed iui, you say? Just like me...

cups what a stressful time for you and your family. Sending you good thoughts. Also well done on the sender interview.

So I am holed up in a hotel room with d&v. Nice. Food poisoning? A bug? I don't know, but it just started last night. Yuk

My niece is 27 months, and chatters away non stop. She's blond and curly, and adored by all Thais, including men.

Still no AF, or spotting. 17 days post trigger, 16 days post iui. Could this mean I didn't respond to the trigger, so iui would have been mistimed? We did keep on smacking the rat, but that would be annoying. Although I don't relish AF cramps to add to existing gut cramps.

Now, can someone start us a new thread? im sick of this song in my head

Sorry to not check all, I feel rubbish...

Solars I was proper chuckling away then, an all of a sudden it diverted me to 'local slags' shock grin

I'm so pleased for your cousin, such lovely news.

Cups you're right to take a break tonight. It will do you the world of good

Solars Fri 25-Jan-13 16:23:26

Beedle, Cups it was cousins first attempt at ivf, so was brilliant news as she'd never had a bfp before, she'd had one failed iui & one cancelled iui prior to this ivf cycle. So it really can happen, getting a result on the first attempt!

Cups that is excellent news about your job and everything crossed you get the result you want for Tuesdays interview. So sorry to hear about your grandad though, that's very sad. Your poor mum and nan, hopefully they will see it as the best place to get the care and attention he needs in a home but I can see where they are coming from.

Geek I hope you are beginning to recover now. I have now sent off the registration form for the new clinic, my gynae's secretary has assured me that the referral letter will go early next week. So lots more waiting still and the potential for an ironic bfp Have you had your confirmation of your op date yet?

Maybe I wouldn't be insulted by the alpaca with your name thay can be quite cute until they get a hair cut like these grin

NoCupcakesOrCocktails Fri 25-Jan-13 15:45:18

My sister has to go home tomorrow & my mum is going back on Saturday. That's why I'm going to try to miss tonight as it will be only be DH & I around for few days to look after my nan & visit him. My mum will be coming back next week sometime. My mum is struggling with it all, she feels like she is letting him down if she lets him go into a home & my nan really doesn't want him to go into one. Sorry for the me me me posts.

NoCupcakesOrCocktails Fri 25-Jan-13 15:39:38

It's really hard seeing him like that, I keep thinking of how he used to be. My parents divorced when I was 2 and I have no contact with my dad so I'm very close to my grandad. I'm not visiting tonight unless my family need me to, I've been everyday this week & I really need a break.

I'm nervous about the interview on Tuesday, in a way I don't want the job as its a bit too far away. But I can't keep waiting for the perfect job to turn up around the corner.

Have you heard anything back yet Maybe? How you getting on with finishing off your work from the phd?

SweetieTime Fri 25-Jan-13 15:34:32

Cup well done on the interview front. Sorry to hear of your grandad, it is awful to see. We had an elderly aunt who was the sake. Coped ok at home but then went really down hill on rest bite care. She seemed fine in her home but as soon out of the familiar surrounding and routine dementia set in. She forgot she smoked within a week and had smoked 60 a day for 40 years. Hope you are ok, are your family with you supporting?

NoMaybeAboutIt Fri 25-Jan-13 15:25:58

Oh Cups I am so sorry to hear about your Granddad. That must be so hard for him losing his memory so suddenly. How are you all coping?

That is fantastic news about your interview though, well done you. How are you feeling about the one on Tuesday? I am sure you will ace that one too.

Geek I am so jealous of your farmyard antics. I would love an alpaca so so much. At our local farm, there is one with my name. I didn't know whether to be insulted or not 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.

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

Keep I am sorry sad thanks

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

noooooo! that cannot possibly be right keepsad

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?

Oh my goodness confused grin biscuit amazing

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 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!!

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 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!

BeedlesPineNeedles Thu 24-Jan-13 11:10:16

<joins the waiting-for-a-peestick party outside keep's bathroom>

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...
