If you’re over 30, ttc over 12 months and wearing nipple tassels under your snowsuit then this just might be the thread for you - if you can prove yourself bitter and evil enough. We’ll be the judge of that. Don your snowsuit , cowbell ready - fill in the BESHtionnaire and prepare to meet our icy glare. This is a marathon, not a sprint.

geek and bugs what fucking days you've had. Glad the cod of comfort has been passed your way. I hope you're both taking it easy.

Are at hobart
<chucks departing snowball at Euro> how you doing oh most recently diffed one?

cherrycoconut Sat 25-Jan-14 21:11:37

Wotcha Hags. Nice thread Cherry. I'm watching from the sidelines. I've brought my loudest cowbell.

TheBuggerlugs Sat 25-Jan-14 21:46:15

This thread reminds me of Cool Runnings so I've brought my lucky egg grin

cherrycoconut Sat 25-Jan-14 21:59:49

Just the one bugs thought it was quadz.
Nice yodelling jeff <go Team ESH>

<tramps in on snowshoes> Finally made it to the new fred! Nice job, cherry.

bugs that's right, the downreg drucks prevent you from ovulating naturally. Hang in there. Whatever happens, your embies will end up in the best place for them, whether that's in your straight away, or tucked up in the freezer temporarily.

control well done on your egg haul, and I'm glad that Mr C's <ahem> contribution was enough. Will you get fertilisation news in the morning?

Still waiting here for droid (due soon) before we can get going with FET. Found out today that another friend is diffed. I honestly thought I was feeling much more philosophical about things but for some reason the fact that she was plastered when I saw her about 8 weeks ago I really felt that pang of outrage at the unfairness of it. Grrrrrrrrrrr.

TheBuggerlugs Sun 26-Jan-14 04:56:44

Thanks Fizz. 'The Fear' has well and truly taken hold and I can't sleep for thinking/ worrying.

<Holds cod of comfort>
<Rocks back and forth>

<passes by the slope on a horse pulled sleigh>
Just making sure I'm close enough to know when my tasselling skills are required. Also here to grip hands and toes for menkulling over next few days

TheBuggerlugs Sun 26-Jan-14 05:18:00

<Grabs little toe>

Yo Merks what are you doing awake at this time? Have you laid? I can't remember (sorry)

CatsCantFlyFast Sun 26-Jan-14 06:03:07

No, just insomnia. Have been up painting since 3!

FriendofDorothy Sun 26-Jan-14 06:36:48

I'm awake too. Have a bad head and can't go back to sleep smile

Northey Sun 26-Jan-14 06:44:57

<slides in on arse with one ski and one pole missing>

Nice fred, cocopops. Can't sleep either. Thought I would pop back for a bit.

MissHobart Sun 26-Jan-14 07:23:56

Fizzy - I thought I was on top of it and feeling philosophical about it all until the Dr told me I'd ovulated, have now didn't the past three days symptom spotting, hoping, telling myself I'm PG and also most deff not PG. hmm

Feeling hormonal, teary, grumpy, all signs of anything and nothing, want AF to turn up really actually want to be upduffed

Also feel horrid and guilty about it as I'm not having to struggle through ivf yet and have Muchos respect for those if you who are, you're doing amazingly!

After that bit of non BESH attitude normal service will resume immediately!

<sets up a bar halfway down the easy slope serving mulled gin cider, every only to the people who can shout Cunt on the way down> grin

TheBuggerlugs Sun 26-Jan-14 08:00:00

NOOOOOOOERRRRRRRFFFFFFF grin grin grin grin grin grin grin grin

Morning Hags. managed to get a bit of sleep but feel very achey now. Sorry the Fred has got a bit mememememe and a bit full of IVF shiz.

Northey Sun 26-Jan-14 08:05:26

It's your reward for the stabbing. You're allowed. Behold, I grant you the sturgeon of entirely appropriate selfishness.

Northey Sun 26-Jan-14 08:05:42

Are you triggering today?

FrankelInFoal Sun 26-Jan-14 08:27:23

<ties Norf to nearest tree! with extendable rope so she can still reach the bar>

Bugs it is entirely appropriate that you are "selfish" at the moment, don't worry about it.

Geek will you get The Call today?

Fabuluce Sun 26-Jan-14 08:46:36

Luges in with a woooooooohooooooooooooooooo! Plus an additional CUNT! for MissH's benefit smile

Bugs, cuddle up to that cod of comfort and breathe in the essence of carp of calm whilst we all hold on to your toes. The egg buddies definitely have been through this one and should be able to support you. Plus there are some schools of thought that say it's better for all ivfers to freeze them and wait for your body to get back to normal. At this point you really have to have trust in your specialists as they really should know what's best for your body.

Geek - good luck for the call today - hope mr g's fellas were up to muster in the end - what a horrendous stresser sad

AFM I had a top Burn's night out last night which was fun fun fun but then had scarily realistic dream where I dreamt I found out I was pregnant. Realistic because I wasn't excited but scared in a BESH way that it would fail and I was just posting on here to share with you all when I woke up sad it was my only natural pregnancy too. Sigh.

cherrycoconut Sun 26-Jan-14 08:58:56

Slalom poles and everything else crossed for fertilisation news this morning geek.

Bugs and geek we're all willing you on so hard it's only appropriate you give us a blow by blow account of the race so we can holla you both on through the finish line and shout abuse at the relevant moments. Glad you have lots of fishy company to hold for the pit stops.

fizz and *hobart just argh! Argh at the diffed, argh at the menkulling, I'm with you guys in the impatiently waiting for something, anything to happen que. Hopefully our ski lifts will come soon and we won't fall off or make a tit of ourselves on the ascent.

<Stomps snow boots>
<hands out hot chocs with marshmallows to all the insomniacs round here>

cherrycoconut Sun 26-Jan-14 09:07:08

Meh fab that's a downer of a dream to wake up from.
Join us in the lift queue if you like. We're going places us, to the top of the rugged snow mountain of baybee making. There'll be big white dildos and everyfink. Dunno when but we'll be ready.
<shuffles skis in ungainly way to make room>

FizzyFeet Sun 26-Jan-14 09:34:05

NORFY! <throws self at ski-boot-clad ankles> Veh nice to see you. What news haz you?

Lovely metaphor, cherry. Especially looking forward to the big white dildos part, oh yes.

eurochick Sun 26-Jan-14 09:34:27

bugs yes I did and I was worried about popping too early, but all way well. The drugs make your hormones go a bit crazy.

It's normal to be a bit memememe when cycling. It's a lot to put yourself through and we are all here to offer winter sports-related humour and fish slaps in support.

BTW, my bestie did one fresh round and two FETs. Her only BFN was from the fresh round. Her lovely daughter and IVFTWINZ are from the two frozen rounds. So don't worry if you do have to freeze them.

cherry I'm ok. Over the worst of the most awful cold I have had in my adult life. I can't remember the last time anything laid me up for the best part of a week. Preggo-wise, I spent yesterday buying fat girl clothes. My usual style is quite fitted (might as well make the most of all that gym time) but my waist has disappeared in favour of a big belly. I'm not complaining (well, I am a bit) but I wish you could skip the fat stage and go straight to the nice obvious bump stage!

fizz some people just have it so easy. I still marvel at this timeline. Bestie's bro and wife were not sure they wanted kids. They live abroad. Last Feb, bestie and her brood went to visit. Bro and wife enjoyed the family time so much they decided to give it a go. They had a baby in November. It just seems incredible to me that someone decides to start a family and 9 months later they have one.

noooooooooooooooooooooooooorf! Welcome back lovely. <pushes her into a snow drift from which she can't escape easily>

fab that sounds like a very realistic dream.

geek I'll have my skis crossed (like the skiing nobber I am) for your fertilisation call.

MissHobart Sun 26-Jan-14 09:43:55

I agree with Cherry , we need the blow by blow accounts so we can cheer you on! grin

Geek - right now your baybee medal(s) are forming! Very very exciting! They are being well looked after in a lovely warm incubator (away from the snow! wink )

Bugs - trust in the experts! You've waited this long you can make it through the next few days!

ControlGeek Sun 26-Jan-14 10:02:00

One has fertilised. They are putting it back in tomorrow providing it survives the night.

FizzyFeet Sun 26-Jan-14 10:09:06

Hurrah for fertilisation, geek. IOTO and you have a whole bunch of BESH cheering that embie on.

<proffers gluwein and a manly arm punch>
