The BESH plumbing is blocked up. Where's a man with a big tool when you need one?

Welcome to the BESH plumbing thread, where we have blocked pipes, dirty u-bends and leaks aplenty.

Newbies are welcome to seek out the BESHtionnaire submit highly inflated quotes for consideration. Instadiffers will be massively overcharged and sent packing.

<sucks air through teeth> Hmmm, this job is gonna cost a bit wink

I am naturally an early riser. Also my water tank was about to overflow and needed urgent plumbing attention. And then it was daylight, so I couldn't go back to sleep.

So... testing this week then?

Morning Hags. Great fred Frank, made me chuckle anyway.

<leaves gin>
<and cake>
<and 'apologies for being a shite BESH' card>

OTD Friday, taking each day one at a time. First hurdle is over though: today is 13dpo and droid turned up on the same day of my first OI cycle, so I've got past that one. Technically (based on average across all cycles) droid is due Weds/Thurs.

I'm feeling a bit better this morning (although still walking like I've sh1t myself) - the whole hip area is still a bit hurty but not as bad as it was yesterday.

We've had the call from the clinic - all 4 eggs were mature and fertilised but only 2 fertilised normally (googling seems to suggest this is a sperm ishoo). So we have two embies. I've always been very clear about only wanting one put back, so it's ET tomorrow and if the other one carries on we might end up with one to freeze.

norf I often do some early morning MNing on my phone when I can't sleep.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 24-Jun-13 11:32:31

Yay for the egg news Euro grin

What time are you in for ET?

TWinklyLittleStar Mon 24-Jun-13 11:40:10

I love this new fred a lot. It makes me smile every time it pops up in Active.

euro that's great news about the Eurembryos/barrys. Fx for tomorrow.

Thanks for all the poo chat hmm smile I too have poo ishoos <chatty> They started after I had my gallbladder out. Now I tend towards constipation, also from time to time my stomach gets badly distended. I don't know why. I saw my GP, he asked me about flatulence and gave me anti-spasm meds which do no good whatsoever.

frank ODAAT is a good motto. Fingers crossed for euro, toes for you, legs and eyes for the unusually quiet hest.

<is very tangled up>

eurozammo Mon 24-Jun-13 11:42:31

Twinks I think I need a new name for this one. Embarryo didn't end well. I shall think on it.

Frank I'm on for 11.45 tomorrow.

TWinklyLittleStar Mon 24-Jun-13 11:43:31

Sorry. Kind of thought it was a generic name but can see I shoved my size sixes in it.

eurozammo Mon 24-Jun-13 12:12:50

Not at all! I think it has been applied to other embryos since, but it arose as we were joking about them playing barry white in the lab to our eggs and sperm in my first IVF, and I told KFZK and we both used to call it embarryo. My stomach just gives a little lurch each time I see it now. So my new embies need a new name. smile

Frankly, if I could be sedated for the next few weeks and not have to call it anything at all, I would happily take that option.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 24-Jun-13 12:20:42

Completely understandable Euro.

Well the clinic just called with my Progesterone results - 190.8 shock All my previous results have been no higher than about 80 so I'm gobsmacked! I know the levels are not an indicator as to whether or not I'm diffed, but bugger me I must have laid a few eggs to get a level that high!

eurozammo Mon 24-Jun-13 12:27:59

Bloody hell frank!

HesterShaw Mon 24-Jun-13 12:36:40

Cor! <admires Frank's progesterone>

Um....why have you had it tested? And when? And stuff?

<suddenly paranoid about own progesterone>

That reminds me. I forgot my arsebullet.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 24-Jun-13 12:43:16

I had blood taken 8dpo to confirm ovulation had happened. I forgot to call for the results until Saturday and they've just got back to me now. It's standard if you have ovulation ishoos.

Have you, er, "done" the bullet now?

HesterShaw Mon 24-Jun-13 12:48:12

All done <cheerful>.

Well, I'm not going to menkul on your behalf because I know how tiresome that can be. However, I will anyway grin

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 24-Jun-13 13:03:16

I've already been Googling "high progesterone" and there is nothing to link it as a sign of early diffage. So until Friday it's ODAAT.

HesterShaw Mon 24-Jun-13 13:10:16


We are In Total Denial That Anything Out Of The Ordinary Is Happening This Friday.

Actually I have had the odd menkul thought. But there's really no point, so I've squashed them.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 24-Jun-13 14:07:36


<sticks fingers in ears and chants la la la>

lovesLemonDrizzleCake Mon 24-Jun-13 15:20:24

<pops head into the tool shed to find some singing hmm >

Attractive progesterone numbers, frank. Nothing to do with diffage do you want me to google a link for you? and stop the menkulling hes. Plenty of time for that after Friday smile

You didn't sound like a smug differ to me, jeff. And gave me hope, not sure I ever want to do this again, so a first IVF win would be handy.

Hurrah for the embies developing zammo. Sorry about the heart-lurching for embarryo. We called the MC near miss and that still breaks my heart...

Right, if I cope with DR-ing I am totally and utterly deserving of not one but several baybees. I had to skive off from work because I am so knackered. I cannot keep stuff hidden at this rate. I just looked at the list of possible side effects and I don't quite have all of them, but I am getting close. I had not even thought that the cold I got could also be a result from RD-ing.

PS I have normal poo <chatty, or no?>

Northey Mon 24-Jun-13 17:34:09

Congratulations on the normal poo! <ponders propriety>

And congratulations on the progesterone, frank. Are you doing bum bullets? Could that be it?

eurozammo Mon 24-Jun-13 18:05:38

drizz I didn't discover the list of side effects in the box until a good few days in. When I read it, I could tick most of them off. I had pretty much everything bar the headaches - which is the one most people get!

I've come home from work early. I felt really achy and woozy. Not sure what's going on. I could just be coming down with something I suppose.

FrankellyMyDearIDontGiveADamn Mon 24-Jun-13 18:07:52

No bum bullets here Norf, the Progesterone is 100% my own doing <proud>

FizzyFeet Mon 24-Jun-13 18:26:49

Ah ha! Found you! Nice fred, frank

Terribly jolly to read about everyone's poo experiences. I still wince at the memory of a post-surgery one where I nealry fainted with a sort of searing white pain and had to get GFBW to come into the loo with me. Ah, the glamour! I have endometriosis affecting my bowel <overshare> but thankfully it hasn't caused too many problems so far.

I'm feeling a bit more chipper today after hearing a good news ivf story from a friend. Keep 'em coming!

Sorry for the shit side effects, lems. Hopefully this will be the one and only time you have to do this.

Well done on the Not Menkulling, frank and hest.

lovesLemonDrizzleCake Mon 24-Jun-13 18:59:41

<overshare=chatty> fizz get on with crowd. So sorry about that. It sounds horrid. Endo is evil. I ban it from this world <mood swings=delusions of grandeur>

SB now has read the list of side effects and high lighted all the ones - to do with OHSS - that I don't have. And then when I cheered up a little he made a point of ticking off mood swings. But zammo we ain't the same after all. I have the sore head! We actually had a good chat about it, agreed to continue for now, but to find out how to go about stopping without scuppering our funded round (and possibly opt for SP next time, if they let us).

Well done sky rocketing All Own Progesterone, frank.

And whichever way you look at it, norf my poo is my own - except when I was diffed, then it was weird and definitely someone else's. Any news on the droidal invasion? It needs to get there by next weekend if you are to cycle with me!

Northey Mon 24-Jun-13 19:12:38

A faint-worthy poo, fizz? shock <peruses strained pipes with a professional air>

No sign of droid. <panics> I am monitoring nightly my bra-removal-tit-drop-sensation, just in case. If I had a fiver I might piss on it, just to keep my urethra in training, but I can't be arsed to buy one.

lovesLemonDrizzleCake Mon 24-Jun-13 19:15:12

Ah, that is one manoevre (sp?) I haven't got in my repertoire yet, norf. I shall start tonight am sure SB will appreciate as a zero-score, considering I have no female hormones in my entire body, or so it feels.
