Hey Barking and well done on the lovely new thread. That'll teach Bunny for buggering off on hols and leaving us unsupervised wink
Didn't add my résumé on last thread so here goes:
Happylass 35 cycle 10. Desperately trying to pop one out before wedding next year. Getting initial blood tests at GP so can hopefully be referred asap.

Hello all!

Found you. Great title but officially put off omelettes for life now!

Yorkiebilb, 35. Ttc since Sep 2012. Mmc Dec. Initial blood tests done. DH sa showing low motility but retesting next week then referral to fc. Thoroughly fed up of it all!

Tallyra Thu 16-May-13 12:40:11

Hiya. Just jumping off the shuttle. Will talk later. Thank you for making the new thread barking!

Tallyra Thu 16-May-13 12:45:57

haha, just checked facebook and 'lactofree' asked opinions about the way to make a perfect omelette. nearly choked on my tea....hmm

Thundercatsarego Thu 16-May-13 12:55:28

Ha tally! Did you say, start with some soft lighting, romantic music and a small beaker...

Bajas Thu 16-May-13 15:25:02

Glad to see the omelette made it into the title grin

BlindKitty Thu 16-May-13 15:42:44

And my cat!!!!

barkingtreefrog Thu 16-May-13 17:08:11

Well my news today is that DP has a date for his op (needs a circumcision to stop the occasional bouts of eczema he's getting in that area). 6th June. My 1st (and incredibly selfish thought) was to go straight to my ff app and see whether that would fall in/before shag week next cycle blush . It does sad .
And in other news, AF is still not here. 10 dpo!! Why didn't I try vit b6 sooner?!?! And why does it appear to have worked on the only cycle in 18 months hat we failed to dtd at the right time?!?!? shock

Thundercatsarego Thu 16-May-13 18:03:51

<whispers> poas barking

Bunnygirlie Thu 16-May-13 18:39:03

Just jumped off the flying sausage shuttle to say hi before I head back to the sun lounger of sadness, AF not due for a week but she has sent her itchy bitch welcome party ahead of her! I just hope she delays her visit till I am home!
Frog - sorry to hear OH is being an arse!
Barking - gutted OHs op will ruin shag week!

Anybody due to POAS?

P.s. how very dare you board the shuttle without me wink

yorkiebilb Thu 16-May-13 18:39:27

barking don't be so hard in yourself. I would have done exactly the same.

<echoes thunder poas>

sconeoclock Thu 16-May-13 19:43:07

barking perhaps you can get dp to jazz in a beaker so you can make an omelette after his op during shag week?

Have you poas yet? Although 10dpo might be a bit early?

barkingtreefrog Thu 16-May-13 19:56:24

I caved to peer pressure and pimped. BFN. Doesn't change anything as if I'd got a bfp I wouldn't believe it and as I got a bfn it's only because it's too soon <not because I we didn't dtd on a single peak day>.

So still just waiting for AF to arrive. Didn't make an appointment today but mainly because I just didn't get a chance between 5-8 when they like you to call.
I told DP if it didn't arrive soon there was a chance my hsg would be during half term and he just shrugged and said the hsg was the important thing smile .

Tallyra Thu 16-May-13 20:00:37

ah fuck girls, I really need a hug. huge upset at work, went to yoga to try and calm down and arrived home to find dh has not even started cooking the roast that I made sure would be simple to just bung in the oven when he got home. now won't be eating til 9 and I'm ravenous and emotional and he's on the sofa - probably hasn't even realised I've stormed off.

barkingtreefrog Thu 16-May-13 20:05:39

I would also be annoyed at that. Have wine and a biscuit and some thanks . Perhaps a brew ?
I get grumpy when I'm hungry so finding out dinner is late is a bad thing I sympathise with a lot!! <hugs>

sconeoclock Thu 16-May-13 20:10:50

Hug tally
Go and get yourself a takeaway and if dh asks say you can't wait to eat until 9 and he forgot dinner!

Tallyra Thu 16-May-13 20:20:06

I'd love to, but we can't afford anything extra at the moment. And I think I want to quit my job. that's going to muck up plans somewhat. (understatement of the year). I really want to stay long enough to take advantage of maternity leave though. angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry angry

sconeoclock Thu 16-May-13 20:24:14

How much longer would you have to be there to qualify?

sconeoclock Thu 16-May-13 20:24:53

How much longer would you have to be there to qualify?

Tallyra Thu 16-May-13 20:49:09

I could get it now. been there 3 years now. dh just suggested I move to his company and do 1st line tech support with him as team leader. must admit it's tempting but probably very wrong.

Tallyra Thu 16-May-13 20:52:14

I'm pretty sure I could get diffed pretty soon but really want to get checked over before I try again confused

sconeoclock Thu 16-May-13 21:08:07

So probably you would only have to be there another year Max? That's assuming you get diffed in the next 4 months.

I guess it depends how bad it is and whether or not you could work with dh!!
