TRC 10+ months. Part 15...(1000 Posts)
New thread for the lovely 10+ers. 14 was awesome so another like that please!
Marking place, thanks for setting up the new thread nelly!
Thanks nelly! Hope the cactus didn't cause too much damage......
Waves hello to art. I can't believe that you are so far along already. I'd be dropping hints to grandma to try some primary colours as well as beige . If I knew that I was having a girl I wouldn't tell because I'm not a big fan of pink!
gin I know that I will trade one set of worried for another. I was born worrying so that won't be anything new. I'm sure parents never stop worrying about their kids.
sea I think it was you that asked, otd for me is Monday the 13th. 13 is my lucky number
ignoring fact that thread 13 was unlucky for many and clinging to fact it was lucky for doll. Have to go in for a blood test at the clinic but will poas first at home with MrM.
Part 15 eh. I have been in this thread for approaching two years. May I please never be on the 10 years plus thread but that does mean I've been talking to some of you peeps for two years too. Probably a lot more than I do to a lot my RL friends!
Art tis great to see you. If anyone ever asked me was it planned I think my face would be a picture. I like that miniart is gender not confirmed. Agreed that bright colours are good. I do have a host of unfinished items but I have to say that my sewing machine craft adventures have led to highest rate of completion. Who knew that fabric could be so pleasing and shockingly addictive. I tried to explain this to my students earlier this month and was met with shocked faces of disgust!
Doll it will look like a mini bump and not thickened waist
gin also hurrah for the retching though I'm sure it is a bit grim. I know that I would try to bravely see any yukky symptom as better than ttc but I forget in my dreamy thoughts of pregnancy that actually a lot of it isn't exactly a picnic. Hold out for the bloom which will be with you soon.
nelly I've been thinking of you and your taped sticks. I am doing mental willing very hard.
sea I have had a stern talking to about the hot yoga by my acu, my parents and Hare. As such I am now not doing Bikram but hot yoga at slightly lower temps with radiant heat that feels nicer and not so sweat tastic and only once a week it is only 60 minutes too and more flowing. It is still hot and hard but I don't feel like I've been run over by a truck at the end. I also don't get the endorphin rush. I feel in my gut though that bikram is not right when ttc. How was lunch?
Goddamn I've forgotten who else posted on the other thread. I meant to say euro your words about feeling like you were being punished really resonated with me. I spent ages thinking this was my punishment for past demeanours and i never stopped to think this was a culturally engrained response. I've moved on from there now, with the help from folks on here I think.
I have had my pmt cry today which started when I couldn't understand a sewing pattern instruction, moved on to how unruly our garden is and ended up in a woe fest about how all my friends are having a lovely baby/toddler bank holiday according to the book of faces. Poor Hare but he did good consoling. He dared to say it was pmt which was a brave move but I had to reluctantly agree and to be fair I did ask him a few mnths ago to remind me of I was having a similar strop
I didn't mean it though
Yoga, a bath and a glass of nice wine have eased the situation. Bring on period 26, my tampon cupboard is fully stocked in excited anticipation. We had a big cook as my grump evaporated, we did Angela Hartnetts ragu earlier which I'm dubious about. It's been slow cooking for three hours and I'm not sure it is as nice as a regular spag Bol. It is also <whispers> made with veal. My former vegan self has rolled over and died.
Ha I wrote hot and hard a lot in that post
Oh rabbit I have also told MrM to remind me when the hormones have Aiken over and I am totally flying off the handle over not very important things. I also do not appreciate it very much at the time but good to help me just ride it out. Me apologising and acknowledging that it was irrational also seems to make it more bearable for MrM to be supportive instead of just shouting back at me and joining in with the stomping about, throwing of
soft things, and generally behaving like a thwarted two year old.
Have just noticed that your iPhone has renamed out thread, nelly. One of you clever ladies needs to work out what TRC stands for
And judging by the autocorrects in that post I will never take responsibility for starting a new thread
Aiken is taking
Out should be our
madness. Trying REALLY hard to Conceive?
The veal was amazing!
<had too many white-belgian-beers in the sun, is feeling decidedly squiffy>
Yay for shiny new fred and keeping stuff crossed for everyone. No news except for kid-free beers are good
OFFS I tried very hard to check for mistakes. Arse biscuits.
nelly don't worry! Was thinking that this means we can go incognito . No one else will know what we're talking about.
Glad the meal was good rabbit. We opted for veggie lasagna. I find it strangely addictive and keep wandering back into the kitchen to nibble leftovers.....
Lemon I am jealous of your squiffyness. I had to drink some wine tonight in a decoy style. It was sooo nice.
decoy style, nelly you nutter.
madness in answer to your question I'm moving around toward bridesmaid duties. The real move is in August and in the other direction.
Doll your life manages to sound very glamorous . Though not so much when you share your doctor tales. Will you have moved come the big day????
In my stripy art installation, I am trying to decide if today's almost-invisible line is 1% darker than yesterday's. it's narrower bizarrely, and "sharper" but can't tell if its darker. I'm now 2 weeks past trigger and 7 days past the tiny booster shot. But I feel a bit period-y this morning so who knows . It's a bank holiday though so hurrah for that!!
How are the other 2ww-ers doing?
Critter best of luck for today .
Good luck critter, looking forward to your report.
Nelly -ooooooo I do hope so, ooo fingers tightly crossed.
at bank holiday. My work have decided to ignore this one....
Nelly i too am so hopeful for you!!
How are you today mrsd?
Back to work.....
Isn't it Buzzy's donor's EC today too?? Fingers tightly crossed for a great clutch of eggs and loads of fertilised ones. Thinking of you!
MrN says today's line is darker. However he immediately put out that fizz of excitement by doubting whether the darkness of the line had any bearing. Twat
tell me he is wrong about that
Boo for work Mad. My so called Scottish employer takes English bank holidays. Which is very annoying every time the 2nd of Jan rolls around.
Nelly a darker line would have bearing! Big squeeze, I hope that line sticks around for the next 9 months. It would be a big chart!
Madness I feel your pain, no bank holiday for me
Just a quickie ...
nelly darker line = a v good sign! Tight squeeze from me too. Have you got a blood test booked?
mrsd have you tested again? I have everything crossed for you.
critter hope all goes well today
And buzz here's hoping for a huge haul from your donor today.
Bank holiday luffs to all, esp those at work!
Thanks for allowing me to wallow in my fantasy ladies! The line is only visible if you look at it directly from above, but it's there. It is mega mega faint though. Blood test is Friday Gin, should have been Thursday but the satellite clinic is only 3 days a week.
I'm sorry so many of you are working today. That is rubbish.
Nelly - it looks promising. Surely a stronger line means something? I'm keeping everything crossed for you.
Mad - One more week to go... I hope the wait is not driving you too crazy. . Sorry you are having to work. Not nice.
You were completely right about the lunch with the newly diffed... it wasn't too bad at all.
Art - nice to hear from you. It must all seem very close now. Happy for you.
Rabbit - I think you are doing the right thing easing off the Bikram. Lots of other forms of exercise around to stay healthy.
Critter - how are you doing? Hope you are feeling less bloated. ET tomorrow isn't it?
Buzzy - Thinking of you and your donor. I hope everything is going according to plan and you are managing to have some down/relax time.
A quick question for hayfever sufferers. My clinic have advised that I will go on long protocol using nasal spray for downregging when I'm ready for the IVF. I have started to feel hayfever rearing its ugly head this weekend. Thinking ahead it looks very likely (provided cykotine levels behave) that my downregging will coincide with my worst hayfever months. Does anyone know if you can take hayfever meds during downregging and if the nasal spray will be effective if my nose is likely to be all blocked up?! Any advice would be greatly appreciated. x
Joy - just reading back on your last post.
Re Ana Maria. I think she probably means people she saw that had IVF have all got pregnant. She did say that she thought IUI wouldn't help and might just get my hopes up. I think she is a nice lady and I might return to her. I'm going to try someone else for a while - cheaper, close to the clinic and have practiced extensively in China (which is something I like in an acu but totally a personal preference).
I totally get how you feel about attending an event and thinking back to the previous year when you wondered if you would be pregnant by the following year. I have that every New Year as Mr Sea and I usually go away with a group of (mostly single friends) and every year I think I won't be able to join anymore as I will (hopefully) be diffed. I was reminded when I saw one of them at Mr Sea's party and he asked me where I thought we should go this year. It felt surreal and rather bittersweet (bitter - not diffed, sweet - can go on carefree hols with non couple friends but probably can't afford to because of ivf). Like you, this will be the 4th year for me too.
Brno calling, hello ladies,
mrsd I don't undrsatnd the evap line thingo I would suggest a wordy one
makes life easy for us simple ones then you will know
nelly oooh a line you say again see info above re pissing on sticks, not that i'm saying you are simple it just helps with the mekulling
critter I hope ET went well
madness when is your testing day
rabbit hormones are a bitch, I was thinking of going to see my GP about mine as I have had some very up/down moods at your yoga
I have only had a quick read through the end of the last thread.
well Brno is nice, a bit like Zagreb. its not flash or touristy in anyway. so bloody cheap, half a litre of beer is a £1, I have been drinking fruit cocktails . they are big on their meat here, 1200gms of duck who could eat all that, I am surviving as a vego out here, lots of ice cream, thats protein isn't it
well we went to the clinic, very nice, staff are lovely, barry went and did his bit, he said the wank room
