We laugh in the face of OPKS and stomp on our thermometers! Don your customised shag capes, ladies; it's Just Shagging Thread 15

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 OPKs or temp charting. They are Contraband.

Happy shagging shaggers!

You shouldn't get a false positive though :-/

Can you get yourself a First Response Early Result test? Or are you waiting before bringing out the big guns?

It looked like a line to me as well.

Hmm...keeping things crossed for you.

Minion Thu 16-May-13 08:46:38

Bear, it looks like a line to me too!
Fingers crossed for you.

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 08:47:18

Morning all! Am desperately awaiting news Bear!!

essie81 Thu 16-May-13 08:56:37

oh bear! Sorry I missed all this. I'm still in in the depths of no-where with no internet. angry

I agree though, it looks like a line to me. Keeping everything crossed for you lovely.

TTC 1, cycle 6, ERTD due 18/5/13.

essie81 Thu 16-May-13 09:18:22

p.s hellooo to the newbies! <waves>

Bearface Thu 16-May-13 11:32:07

Well, I thought it looked like a line too but this morning's test was definitely a bfn. I'll try and get hold of an FRER after work. How confusing this all is! Still no Ertd yet and I'm now 2 days late, but this isn't unheard of for me. I have been 4 days late before.

What's everyone else up to?

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 11:43:42

Sorry Bear, but there is always hope until ERTD comes.

DS has a heavy cold but a trip to Homebase this morn cheered him up. Lots of shiny things to coo at. Now he is on the move i can't leave him for a second so time is of the essence I should probably be doing housework instead of mumsnetting

essie81 Thu 16-May-13 12:07:34

Hmm. V confusing and annoying for you. Still keeping it all crossed til you know for sure one way or another. It's not over til Cruella rocks up.

Nothing much interesting to report I'm afriad. Getting my hair done tomorrow! Yay! Then a wedding on Sat which should be fun. ERTD due Sat too.

HumptyDumptyBumpty Thu 16-May-13 12:07:38

bear agreed - I think you need a more 'positive' test - ICs are too easy to misinterpret. Did you wait the full 10mins? My first BFP took 8 mins to develop...

AQuarkTooFar Thu 16-May-13 12:38:39

Keeping everything for you bear you certainly deserve it!

Well I think that's me finished week 7 of WW and After a few gains in previous weeks i lost 5lbs this week. I have now lost a while stone! grin it all feels one step closer to getting up duffed!

AQuarkTooFar Thu 16-May-13 12:39:10

Whole not while!

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 12:43:28

Flipping hell, that's impressive Quark! Well done!

AQuarkTooFar Thu 16-May-13 12:47:31

Thanks totes properly chuffed. Your DS sounds like my DH who likes a good l

AQuarkTooFar Thu 16-May-13 12:48:03

Argh stupid phone!

DH loves a good wander round home base/b an q!

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 13:06:11

Lol! Well DS is 1 and obsessed with anything he can open/ close, slide etc. he went apeshit in the door handle section! I hope he likes a bit of DIY when he is older.

My DH isn't a natural DIYEr but he does try and I love him for that thank God my dad is brilliant at it

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 14:36:05

Depressing news. Progesterone show I didn't ovulate again.

essie81 Thu 16-May-13 15:05:27

Sorry to hear that totes sad

What happens now? What can they do to help sort it? x

Rockchick1984 Thu 16-May-13 15:50:50

Sorry to hear that Totes sad

IceNoSlice Thu 16-May-13 16:53:45

Bear - I had a negative result last time when I was upduffed, I'd done the test too soon. Also, I think I had a small bleed very early on so that confused matters too. At my dating scan I was 4 weeks further on than previously thought. However, that was all probably my ineptitude at POAS tests or something- don't want to give false hope! I'm no expert in all the ovulation cycle stuff- last time we 'just shagged' for a while and tried to relax about it all (though I remember being gutted when ERTD arrived). Have my fingers crossed for you.

Will be interesting this time round. Haven't had ERTD in 18 months confused

Quark - very impressive! Hope you enjoy buying something new in a smaller size to celebrate smile

Bearface Thu 16-May-13 17:27:58

Hello, hello.

Well, I went to get an FRER after work but the special chemist I normally go doesn't seem to stock them anymore, so I bought a Clear Blue digital. I get home, start getting myself ready and I now appear to have spotting. sad I don't think I was ever upduffed in the first place, but what's with that flippin' test making me think I was. hmm So, sorry to disappoint guys, but no BFP for me.

Quark - that's amazing. (And I don't use that word willy-nilly like some people.) You should be so proud of your good self.

Totes - sorry about the progesterone, but I'm sure they can give it to you in tablet form to get you up to normal levels, can't they? P.S. I love a good wander round a DIY shop too! grin

Ice - sorry (or not??) for the absent Ertd. Do you need to do anything to make it come back or are you just waiting?

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 18:17:37

Well, sorry to hear that Bear. Could it be implantation though?

I am due to speak to doc next week so will take it from there. Thing is, while it could be just a simple matter of taking progesterone supplementation, I will have to go through the whole flipping test sheet before they prescribe. so scans, DHs sperm test etc. all of which take an age.

I thought we were meant to be more fertile after pregnancy,not less!!

Oh and sorry for crap grammar, I hate typing on this pad thingy.

So, I am sitting in the middle of the room at the pity party, waiting for someone to turn on the violins.

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 18:22:48

Oh, and also, rather randomly,I got OV pain the day before my blood test, day 18 of my cycle, so go figure? Perhaps I. Have a cyst or something. Or PCOS?

Rockchick1984 Thu 16-May-13 19:05:39

Totes what prompted you to have your progesterone levels checked?

Don't worry Bear - even if you're not upduffed at least you have the referral coming up soon. It's not over til the red lady sings though, so still keeping everything crossed for you (except my legs, sorry) smile

Congrats on the weight loss Quark that's fantastic!

Totesamazeballs Thu 16-May-13 19:17:11

Basically I thought and still think my luteal phase was/ is coming up short, at 8 days, and one of the causes of this can be low progesterone. The doc I saw initially was young and keen and said that it can take a while for your cycles to get back to normal after pregnancy but I persevered and said I would feel reassured if I had my hormones checked. Fortunately she allowed this and hence the first result which was 7.9. I then spoke to older doc who said lets check again and that I was wrong about my luteal phase as all women has a two week one and I was shagging at the wrong time. Anyway, second results 5.2.

However, IF I am actually correct (I don't have anything to go on other than some inaccurate basal temps and OV pain ) then my progesterone levels are being taken at 1 dpo because my LP is only 8 days and they have to count back 7 days from when you think ERTD comes, but that is meant to be mid luteal phase (ie if you have a 14 day normal LP).

It's confusing and it sucks.

I have no idea what any of you are talking about. I feel really ill informed- I just start jsing when my phone application tells me...
