Roll up, roll up for the best discussions of ewcm, opk, ic and double dying you'll ever have. Probably.

The smallprint - Berries have a strict entrance criteria (TTC #1, over 30, TTC for 3+months, NO instadiffers, must have a special pot) and def no mention of baby dust or baby dancing UGH !!! Ooh we are strict...please note your house may be at risk if you do not keep up repayments lol

barkingtreefrog Mon 15-Jul-13 21:00:38

Well done Charming ! I was refreshing until someone created a new thread!!

Yep, Thunder has hit bingo, and I'm hoping determined that this clomid will let me join her cycle - and I'm going to drag you all with me up this yellow brick road!!!

<still waiting impatiently to be let into the secret fb room>

Bunnygirlie Mon 15-Jul-13 21:09:16

Just saving my place! Can't imagine graduating off this thread either though sad

SidneyBristow Mon 15-Jul-13 21:13:50

yay, new thread, one which will kick us out into the graduates corner asap!

bunny really sorry AF got you, had my fingers crossed for you, this process is such an ass-kicking. You will feel better in a few days, I swear. It's the hormones, plus the disappointment that are making things look bleak right now. Your time will come thanks

I've abandoned facebook as it makes me feel shit about myself and excluded. I don't want to return to that. If you'd rather communicate through the group there from now on, that's fine, but I'll join another thread.
I loved mn and the berries because it wasn't fb. Not having a go, but have been feeling very sad about the berry group this evening.

barkingtreefrog Mon 15-Jul-13 21:34:15

I'm still here Charming !

SidneyBristow Mon 15-Jul-13 21:35:07

Hi Charming,
I completely understand what you mean about FB. I've had more than one day ruined by inadvertently seeing someone's pg announcement, and then diving headfirst into the black hole of looking at happy families pictures of people I haven't otherwise thought of in 20 years. Personally I can see myself posting in both places; it's a bit of a relief to be able to say things to other people in the same boat and know it's in a more secure setting, so to speak. Please don't feel sad! I don't want anyone feeling left out or unsupported. thanks

Bunnygirlie Mon 15-Jul-13 21:36:00

And me!

Just seen the new clear blue monitor ad on tv, can't escape TTC anywhere!!!

Tallyra Mon 15-Jul-13 21:37:21

confused No cats, please don't leave. I was kind of thinking that the fb group was too confusing myself - there are so many threads to keep track of! I like the visuals, but I might just stick to posting pretty pictures on there too.

Bunnygirlie Mon 15-Jul-13 21:38:18

Thanks for your message sid I know I'll be ok in a few days. I don't know why I'm feeling so down today, I knew about a week ago she was coming when the itchy bitch arrived, and then the spotting!

Gillster Mon 15-Jul-13 21:45:04

I'm still here! FB has its place but really want to keep this thread going. Not enough hours in the day to keep up with both MN and FB all of the time!

CharmingCats Mon 15-Jul-13 22:10:57

Thanks, I understand. It's not just pg announcements on fb, but the whole thing, really. I'm determined to cancel my acc, but have log on to do that. Don't want to get sucked in.
Over the last couple of years, I've been removing myself from 'friendships' that I find painful but am still fb friends with many. It's made me happier to not be in situations that make me sad, but I also feel very alone at times, as I no longer have the wide circle I once did. Totally my choice, but a double edged sword at times, especially with fb to show you pics of events you weren't invited to etc.
Anyway, I'm off to bed. I think I have pmt, so feeling low. But, but, but pmt on cd33 is miraculous and hints at a cycle of less than 40 days, so not all bad.
Good night, berries.

barkingtreefrog Mon 15-Jul-13 22:14:17

Night charming hope you feel better in the morning flowers.

Boomgoestheweasel Mon 15-Jul-13 22:16:24

Charming oh no, don't you go anywhere! I'm still here!

Bunny also just got the clearblue ad right in the face. Was trying to watch some TV to calm down after a horrible afternoon and a fight with evil DH, so goo-goo baby adverts were really not required.

Going to bed now to cry more as am exhausted. Tomorrow is last day of cramming so can only hope I manage to bash out the last few thousand words. again - I never learn sad

cherrycoconut Mon 15-Jul-13 22:16:52

With you Cats I'm bad enough at dipping in and out of this, never mind FB as well. Also I use the book of Face for work - don't ask, I work in marketing, goddamit - and so often have it pulled up on my computer. That and Twatter. No wonder I can never be fussed updating my own page!

I'm staying suspicious; I think it would feel wrong to have you berries popping up on there when I'm in work mode and I aint having it yet.

cherrycoconut Mon 15-Jul-13 22:20:19

Goodnight all, sleep well, hope you feel better in the morning! Is it wrong to wish you all shiny new cycles? Hmm doing it anyway...

CatsCantFlyFast Mon 15-Jul-13 22:21:29

Marking place. Off to eat my (v late due to locking ourselves out) dinner

cherrycoconut Mon 15-Jul-13 22:32:23

Sounds like a highly irritating adventure Merkin.

Thunder I feel waaay better on the hormones cheers for asking. Hopefully no actual beard... Have Finally shaken the overwhelming fatigue I've had since I came off the pill last year and am getting good sleep for the first time in months. Feel much more like my normal self, it's such a relief!

Bunnygirlie Mon 15-Jul-13 22:47:58

Hugs cats

boom sounds like you are sitting in the sofa of pity with me then!

cherry glad you are feeling better on your hormones smile

Anybody feeling blue - may I suggest watching the be more dog ad, makes me smile every time!

Thundercatsarego Mon 15-Jul-13 22:48:34

Marking place.

cats it's totally understandable not to want to do it. They definitely both have very different roles- like with anything it is just what suits you. I feel much more restricted on mn because of fears of outtage but I'm not going to leave because the support is fantastic.

Boodle9 Mon 15-Jul-13 22:59:37

Charming, I'm not going to FB. I do use it, but less and less these days as more and more people announce pregnancies on there. Even had one just now, but it wasn't a friend really, a relative of a friend who I don't really know why I had as a friend in the first place Bitch cow moo face got unfriended, oh yes she did

I also promise to make more of an effort to log in and post on here, given me period of unauthorised absence recently.

I'm having another crappy evening. Awful news today about non-TTC things that doesn't affect me personally as such, but heartbreaking for those it does.

AF is definitely getting under way, possibly awful pain tomorrow when I'm having a very chaotic day at work. Loads of pregnant bellies all over the supermarket tonight.

I am in a right huff.

And this is going to sound insincere now, but it really isn't - great news, Thunder!

Bunnygirlie Mon 15-Jul-13 23:03:32

Good to see you boodle come and sit with us <slides up sofa to make room> have some drugs, I was in AF agony today!

Bunnygirlie Mon 15-Jul-13 23:04:13

So new list needed for new thread, rules is rules wink ...

Bunny - 33, month 15 TTC, had basic tests, awaiting FC referral letter

happylass Mon 15-Jul-13 23:11:48

Quickly marking spot on new thread before calling it a night. Don't worry Cats and Boodle we aren't going anywhere. Have to keep the thread going - it's where it all started!! FB is great for seeing who everyone is and posting stuff that might out you on here but I find it quite hard to keep track of what's going on - too many different posts/comments going on for my tiny brain to cope with!
Night all,hope those having a tough time have a better day tomorrow.
