Out with the OPKs, ban the body temping; here's Just Shagging thread 14!

Ladies, Fred title says it all; we are the ones who shag as much as our men can cope with in order to get upduffed without the stress of scientific whatnots!

Fred rules (copied from previous Fred)

1. Thou shalt shag as much as humanly possible in order to get upduffed.
2. Thou shalt not partake of OPKs, temping, or charting.
3. Thou shalt keep symptom spotting to a minimum.
4. Thou shalt share and with your fredmates where needed.

JSing lingo;

ERTD = Evil Red Tide of Dooooooommmmmmm. Or AF to most others.

Pant snot = Egg white cervical mucus.

Doing a kitten = Getting upduffed soon after joining (warning: may induce in other posters).

Viroid = This is you, dear poster. This is from the first JS thread when someone tried to type 'ladies' and it autocorrected to 'Viroids' - so there you go!

POAS = Pee On A Stick (of the pregnancy detecting kind, not from a tree). Also known as PIAR (Pee In A Ramekin - cos we're posh birds innit). Or PIATLH (Tea light holder) PIAWG (Wine glass) or anything else you care to pee in!

Shagging like something = JSing like a teenage nymphomaniac.

Giving a hooya = Giving a much needed slap to a fellow poster in danger of slipping into ttc obsession.

Contraband = Of COURSE none of us EVER partake of any silly opk's or temp charting. They are Contraband

Happy shagging shaggers

I'll come to your pity party bearface. I'll bring the massive Chinese pmt made me buy. I also got a bfn today (ertd due on Fri). feeling pretty crap really

Bearface Tue 14-May-13 21:05:41

Cookie- I'm not really sure either as the sites I've looked on say you either need a blood test or to do temping to be exactly sure when it is. But if you use contraband your cycle length to guess work it out accurately then it's the length of time between I've and start of your period. So I guess you can estimate but then lots of folks are saying there's is less than 14 days. Without temping, bloods or contraband or really strong symptoms (pant snot and ov pain) I don't know how you'd work it out. Any ideas anyone?

Bearface Tue 14-May-13 21:08:34

Oh yeah bring your Chinese Cookie. I'm starving waiting for DH to finish exercising so I can eat! Sorry about your bfn my love. It's shit. Hopefully it'll happen soon for us.

cookielove Tue 14-May-13 21:58:48

Bear coffee has the chinese, although to be fair if there is any spare i'd take some, Dh hates chinese so i never ever ever get it sad

coffeewineandchocolate Tue 14-May-13 22:15:22

I order it when dh works away :-) got enough for tomorrow too :-)

Cookie exactly like Bear said, LP is the time from ovulation to ERTD. Basically it can take up to 10 days for fertilised egg to implant so if it hasn't already implanted when ERTD arrives it'll all get flushed away - if your LP is short there's more chance of this happening. Doesn't mean you can't get upduffed though as implantation can only take a few days but obviously it means it can take longer to get pregnant.

Well, I seem to be having more pant snot than I've ever seen, so hoping my body has decided it'd actually be quite nice to have another baby smile Mmmm, I'll come to the pity party if there's Chinese and wine - DH prefers Indian although I usually get my own way

Rock - that's how my first pregnancy started!!! Exciting!!

Luteal phase is useful to know because if its too short then you can ask the doc to test your bloods and see if something like low progesterone is causing it. I know when I OV because I get a day of cramping, and the doc still tells me that every person has a two week OV pain. How she can explain the cramping I get on day 18 every month I don't know!!

Bear I'll come to your party, I'll bring cheese and pineapple on sticks and gin and tonic (and limes obvs). Is there a waterslide into the pool?

I have one internet cheapie pee stick left, but I'm not bringing that to your party as I'm so sure I don't need it this cycle. I've decided I'm saving it and using it to get a BFP at some point in the future. I have to be TOTALLY sure I'm upduffed before I am allowed to pee on it.

ERTD due on Sat and we are going to a wedding. At least I can get totally smashed drunk.

essie81 Wed 15-May-13 09:13:47

oooh we is going to need a new fred soon!

Totesamazeballs Wed 15-May-13 14:36:15

If there is a party going on then I'm all over it. I have a gigantic chocolate cake to contribute.

Continuing the LP discussion, I haven't used contraband thus far but presumably they are pretty accurate?

essie81 Wed 15-May-13 16:19:02

<whispers>I only used them the once for a few days last cycle as I was getting neurotic that I wasn't ovving, and first couple of days, no line, then started to get a bit of pant snot, so peed again, massive dark line, then next day had ov pains and peed again, still darkish line, but not as dark as day before. So I'd say yes, cos on the pack it says dark line means you will ov in next 24-48 hours, which in my case was right.<stops whispering>

Does that fact I broke the rules mean I can't have cake?!

Totesamazeballs Wed 15-May-13 17:33:42

Ooh interesting. That means if you DTD on day of OV pains then its too late. Shoot! That's my very slim chances completely buggered for this month.

Cake still allowed x smile

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 17:36:07

Okay so I think Ttc has finally driven me crazy. I just did a Poas and thought I saw a line, but then I don't think it is. It's where a line should be if that makes sense. It's so faint that only my crazed beady eyes can see it. Before anyone gets excited, including me, I think it's an evaporation line. Ertd due yesterday and the MF is AWOL. I keep pant checking but nothing. I have had some cramps and usual Ertd fartiness. (Sorry). Boobs felt bigger the other day but now not so sure. I even took tampons to work today convinced it would happen but got and have been getting pant snot instead. Not sure what to make of it all really. Oh yes and I tried two tests and they both seemed to do the same thing. My gut says no. My furry little heart is hoping for a yes. Ooo err. It may have to be one massive Pp ( pity party) everyone!

MrsAVB Wed 15-May-13 17:41:10

<Delurks> Oooooooooh.... bear!!!!
Do you have any symptoms?

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 17:52:45

As suspected insanity has clearly come a knockin'. I did a third one and there's no line now. Must have been evaporation. Still no Ertd though secretly crosses anything that can be crossed

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 17:55:09

Well, apart from the above I've got some twisty cramps in my back and pelvic area but I normally get Ertd first and then cramps a day or two later. By day 4 I'm begging for mercy usually. Think I'm just going to have to wait this one out!

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 17:56:07

Oh it's nine messages left!

MrsAVB Wed 15-May-13 17:57:55

Oh bear keeping everything crossed for you. And hoping that you're not being driven too crazy by it! Lots of love and luck xxx

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 18:01:45


Thanks MrsAVB. smile

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 18:02:07

Six! Doing a Rock here!

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 18:13:59

Five. I'm too excited. grin About creating a new fred not the potential BFP. That's wrong, isn't it?

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 18:14:26

Four. No one's joining in so I'm just going ahead.

Bearface Wed 15-May-13 18:14:51


Bearface Wed 15-May-13 18:15:14

Two. I can't Bear it!

MrsBri Wed 15-May-13 18:15:23

Bear...this early you need to use FMU. I'll be lurking round tomorrow morning after you've POAnotherS!

Seems promising to me :-)
