Newbies very welcome provided they meet the entrance criteria (TTC #1, over 30, TTC for 3+months, must have a special pot, NO instadiffers) and bring a bouquet of sausages when they join!

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 17:38:06

And chocolate. Obviously.

<dusts self down and settles in after trip on the sausage bus>

Barking It could be you! Here's hoping the law of sod works its magic and gives you a BFP this cycle!

<ducks off out to look at FF>

Bunnygirlie Sat 16-Mar-13 17:54:28

Lol will save the strip for later, I gave in and after 15 choc free days I am eating a chocolate egg nom nom nom grin

Thunderbuns Sat 16-Mar-13 17:55:08

We've had 8 bfps recently on the mc thread, something in the water? Spring has sprung?!

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 17:59:50

Thunder it's cos nobody seems to want a Christmas baby and nature is getting its own back!
Third night out and not drinking, perfecting the art of telling people I'm on a health kick (to which they all snigger) and when stupid fuckers people ask if I'm pregnant my comeback is "are you saying I look fat?" which both deflects and means I don't have to lie!

Thunderbuns Sat 16-Mar-13 18:01:31

These are all novemberies tho eh? Maybe it's an extra determined effort before Christmas bfps are a risk?

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 18:02:22

Ooh I want a chocolate egg now!

merkin about the symptoms, my boobs are sore when I squeeze them really hard (but then they would be, wouldn't they?!). I've been a bit tired and dizzy today, and I've had browney pink spotting which COULD be implantation spotting! Guess I'll know tomorrow morning either way because I'm going to crack at 11dpo and POAS! It's brilliant you got a BFP smile

Thunderbuns Sat 16-Mar-13 18:02:36

Good deflection btw! Get used to it! Try the drink swap move with DH too? It can be quite long as he sticks to the rules!

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 18:05:29

What's the drink swap move??

alex (sorry I shorten all names, tell me if you hate it) have you been temping or using OPKs? When is AF due? Which brand are you planning to test with? (Nosy, moi?? grin)

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 18:06:27

Ps barking you make me laugh
cherry did you see my note on the last thread re O?

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 18:10:11

It's my first cycle on clomid, I've got PCOS and it's the first time it looks like I def ovulated! So not sure when AF is due as my cycles before clomid were a bit crazy, but I guess this week sometime if they've regulated? Planning to test with first response! What brand did you use and how many dpo? (am nosy too!)

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 18:10:32

My mum's birthday is Christmas Eve and she hates it. My birthday is June which I love! Given the choice (ha ha) I'd have a September baby but that's the teacher talking!! Stupid SiL is of course having a September baby.

A Christmas baby would still be preferable to a July/August baby though, those summer borns can struggle all the way through school. And their friends are never around for their birthday as it always falls in the holidays!

<do you think I'm looking ahead a little too much given I haven't actually managed the diffed bit?>

Thunderbuns Sat 16-Mar-13 18:10:42

You both order same drinks (or both have wine at dinner). While you pretend to sip at yours, he merrily drinks his. Place em close together when you put them down and you always pick up the one with less in. Surreptitiously of course. Looks like you're drinking but he's doing the work...

Frogcatcher Sat 16-Mar-13 18:10:49

I once got v drunk at a hen do cos a pg friend gave me all her alcoholic drinks without me realising as well as my own - we were in a karaoke booth & kept putting drinks down all over place before you wonder just how ditsy I am! Evil pg plotting people merkin!

Forgot to moan earlier that went to a new hairdresser & got the frickin' do you want children question. If anyone has a really good comeback to this I'd love to hear it as the stepson line hadn't deflected it!

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 18:12:12

Agree with thunder on the drink swap - I've done it for pg friends!

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 18:16:12

Alex prepare to become obsessed with PIMPing and lose all logic of when to start/stop.
I'm considering another PIMP this evening yet I'm only 7dpo..... AF due tomorrow though.
I'm Ov PIMPing on the cheap internet sticks and at the same time POAS with the CBFM. At the moment, PIMPing with cheap pg tests, and should claeificationever be necessary I have a stash of digi CM so I can POAS.

<not obsessed.>

barkingtreefrog Sat 16-Mar-13 18:18:04

Eh? clarification ever.....

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 18:21:57

barking do you tend to feel when AF is on the way?
alex did you get a trigger shot with your clomid? I'm still using the cheapy Internet tests as IMO they are more sensitive than anything else, I dipped a FRER and a cheapy Internet into the same pot and only got a BFP on the Internet one (although on inspecting the FRER by taking it to bits later I saw there was a faint line). Am saving my other FRER til Mon when I will be 11dpo, and assuming that's strong will buy a digi just so I can see the pregnant words.
Had never heard of the drink swap but I like it! Problem is I would probably unconsciously drink the wine! To be honest I had been setting up my 3 closet friends with the fact that I was going to stop for 6 months anyway

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 18:22:13

Did an OPK today (heard it can pick up pg too) but no smiley face. Am still a bit hopeful about the pg test tomorrow though! Oh and I did crack at 6dpo and pg test then as well but surprise surprise negative!

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 18:26:30

Wish I still had some Internet cheapies hanging around but I upgraded to smiley face ones damn it!

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 18:28:19

Oh and no, I didn't get a trigger shot, I think the egg popped out on it's own or at least I got a smiley face after my last scan and 21 tests said ov.

I would probably be rubbish with drink swap too on the pg side, and end up sipping by accident!

Frogcatcher Sat 16-Mar-13 18:33:52

Did my PIMPing for today & still no O so game on for shag week still. No dip in temp today either. wink

WideSargassoSea Sat 16-Mar-13 18:34:05

Hey guys, Can I join please? I'm 35. Been TTC since December and could do with some company.

Tallyra Sat 16-Mar-13 18:39:59

Hi Alex and Sargasso, welcome!

I'm slightly annoyed - I was just getting into this temping and ov prediction thing. If it turns out I am pg, hten that's all for nothing (hopefully)! Damn you all for getting me interested in finding out about my lp when I might not have a need...

CatsCantFlyFast Sat 16-Mar-13 18:47:46
