Not started a new Fred before but hope it is successful for us as we are going to get our BFPs, either by traditional rat smacking activities or using the power of medical science.

Ladies I do declare WE WILL GET THERE - FACT !!!

NewYearNewBoo Sun 27-Jan-13 09:24:29

Ooh, love the new place Sweetie all spacious and waiting for the BFP's to come flooding in!!

SweetieTime Sun 27-Jan-13 09:26:54

I have some chocolate muffins just about ready to welcome the Brookers, past & present.

Beautiful thread Sweetie loving what you've done with the place.

Keep I hope you feel better very soon, it sounds v nasty. Is it possible nt to respond to the trigger shot? I'm keeping everything crossed for you.

MotherOfCleo Sun 27-Jan-13 09:38:04

Did someone menion muffins...... grin

Nicw work girls, the place is looking rather lovely. Think I'll have this red fluffy scatter cushion and throw, right I'm comfy but god I hope we are all ready to graduate soon!!!

What does "brooking" mean.

BeedlesPineNeedles Sun 27-Jan-13 09:41:42

Mmm chocolate muffins sweetie Lovely new thread grin

keep hope you feel better soon. Though if there's no sign of AF, I'd be very tempted to test again ( what am i saying, I'd have been testing every time I had a wee! ) How long is your usual LP?

Rather lazy weekend here, I really should get out of bed soon grin

keepitgoing Sun 27-Jan-13 09:43:27

Thanks sweetie!
I have no idea about the trigger shot, it only came to me as yet another-- potential problem today... They didn't mention it... I just thought, you can have an lh surge but not ov, so could this be the same?

Muffins, <vom>

Soph80 Sun 27-Jan-13 09:54:52

I'm just here for the muffins wink

keepitgoing Sun 27-Jan-13 10:05:08

My period usually comes 16 days after lh surge, with spotting a few days before. I am 17 days past hcg trigger.
Am sure it's just another f***ed up cycle. Hopes are not up.

Welcome soph and pearly. Brooking is the power of positive thinking. This post is not ideal, but the others brook for you when we can't. Tell us your ttc stories. At the moment many of us are starting assisted conception. I had iui this month, TTC 19 months, never a single bfp.

RubberBullets Sun 27-Jan-13 10:06:02

Brooking no argument for BFPs means that we have decided that BFPs are coming and that is that. Fancy explanation

SweetieTime Sun 27-Jan-13 10:09:12

keep did you just <vom> on my muffins? How rude!!! <sniggers behind hand>

Pearly we use the old fashioned term "we brook no argument" on this thread as in we will not take no for an answer when it comes to getting our BFPs or bad advice from twunty Drs etc There are other bizarre terminology used such as rat smacking - meaning getting preggers is similar to the fairground game of chance to smack the rat.

<leaves flapjack for keep in the hope this doesn't make her vom>

SweetieTime Sun 27-Jan-13 10:10:36

Keep have you POAS again?

keepitgoing Sun 27-Jan-13 10:20:21

<voms on flapjacks too>
Not tested since Friday, no. I can't take bfns, rather wait it out.

I always seem to buy faulty pee stocks!

keepitgoing Sun 27-Jan-13 10:21:42

I am drinking oral rehydration salts, which are horrendous.

Wanna share? wink

<enters cautiously>
<wonders how close to get to keephmm >

brook, brook,brook, brook, brooking brook a little bean for meeee.

NewYearNewBoo Sun 27-Jan-13 11:43:43

Face feeling poorly?? Lovely grin sounds just like it should!!!!

Keep still Brooking that your test was just too early and you will be waiting a VERY long time for AF to turn up!

Hello pearly and soph smile

<steals muffins and flapjack's, finds a lovely comfy chair waits for all the other brookers to bring food arrive grin>

Solars Sun 27-Jan-13 11:44:59

Mmmmm muffins... Thanks Sweetie lovely new home for us as we await our beeeffffpeee's

Hello to Soph & Pearly do join us... I've got a loin of pork roasting in the oven, will that entice you both to stay?

Keep hope you are resting with plenty of fluids. please don't share

Brooking as ever for you Face

Are you out of bed yet Beedles? smile

Not much to report from me but I've had a really awful sinusy headachy pain for the past 2 weeks which I can't seem to shift, feeling particularly achy today too sad I am however very excited about a new jacket I bought yesterday which was only £16!!! yes really £16!

Hope everyone is have a lovely weekend x

cartoontrickster Sun 27-Jan-13 12:08:46

oh I do love it when we move to a new place. it really lifts my Brooking spirit.
have dragged myself out of bed I'm feeling a massive clear out coming on. when does nesting usually start?!
do we have newbies?

GreenOlives Sun 27-Jan-13 12:11:41

Place marking ready to congratulate you all as the BFPs come flooding in! grin

Withalittlesparkle Sun 27-Jan-13 13:33:17

I smell muffins and newbies grin

I'm sorry some of you are feeling so rubbish!!!

keep if your LP is normally 16 days (and your 16 days today) and you tested Friday you totally tested tooooo early!!! I had a 13 day LP and only got the faintest faint line 14DPO!!! Just saying!!! Directing all brooking in your direction!!!

face it may be time to accept you're actually as diffed as a diffed person can get, Wednesday is the big day right?

cartoontrickster Sun 27-Jan-13 13:39:59

I know sparks im starting to believe it too. yep its Wed. really hope we're not wrong!
yay for keeps obvious testing too early.
ummm I really can't remember what's going on with everyone.

keepitgoing Sun 27-Jan-13 13:45:23

Thanks for the brooking. You never know...

Good luck face!! You've passed your scary milestones, I think. Enjoy the scan, and the sickness!

Soph80 Sun 27-Jan-13 13:45:32

I could do with some brooking! AF came today after 1st round of clomid. Aged 33, ttc 19 months, HSG 2 cycles ago, DH 3% sperm morphology

Keepingitgoing - did you get your IUI on the NHS or have to pay privately? Seems to depend of where you live from what I can see.

keepitgoing Sun 27-Jan-13 14:30:37

Hi soph, I think we spoke on another thread re clomid. I took it for a month, but the iui was cancelled due to it giving me a thin lining. Do you already ovulate? It sounds like we are in a similar position. Dh had 3-4% morphology over three samples April to July last year. Having taken a massive cocktail of supplements the last four months, it was just repeated and is now 10! I'll find out what they are.

We are abroad until August, so have insurance. At home they wouldn't pay for iui, only ivf after three years, and they counted 3% morph as 'unexplained'. We are just giving iui one more chance, then to ivf, as iui success rates are so low.

Sorry to hear about af. But welcome, as we say here, to day one of your pregnancy. This ttc lark is tough, but these ladies are lovely.
