Just marking my place. Although that makes me think of my dog marking his place and that's definitely not what I'm doing in berry hq

Stepping aboard - whats an FUFC?

Parsley2506 Sun 09-Feb-14 22:51:25

Ooh, new thread! Love the title, let's hope this is the one ladies! grin

Marking place

barkingtreefrog Mon 10-Feb-14 07:10:18

Aquarius - F#ck You Fertility Clinic (ie a last minute natural bfp before the FC step in to help)

barkingtreefrog 34, ttc since Jan '12, clomid bfp ended in mc Sept '13. Cycles absent or screwed since then (short LP anyway before that). FC appointment to talk IVF referral in March.

I'm now on 5th day of spotting and temp remains above cover line. Having trawled through my charts it usually crashes around day 3, sometimes 4, latest ever is 5. It's not really going slowly down either confused hmm .

Thanks for new thread Bunny. Will be thinking of you today.
Just marking my place. Will return to add myself to list once AF turns up later today. Have a good one all.

9dpo, some mild twinges but nothing too interesting...

...except that in the middle of my facial today, one of the creams she applied smelt like rancid fish to me.

Crazy symptom spotting I'm doing, or my facialist was playing a bad prank on me.

BlueBirdy Mon 10-Feb-14 09:53:45

Great title!! Loving the combination of ideas but blush at 'vagina jack' lol!

So is it just Boodle and Gill jabbing at the moment?

eurgh Because that sounds awful! but then hopefully it is a symptom and your facialist doesn't have passive aggressive issues!!

Marking place, I'm still here hiding behind the sofa eating crisps

IamKuma Mon 10-Feb-14 10:49:47

On phone so won't do the list right now.

I've been to Lister this morning who have been through all of my results and recommend a cycle on short protocol if NHS natural cycle doesn't work. I feel like I know where I am now, although some essential work travel at the end of April may slow me down a bit. FC recommended DHEA and Q10 in the intervening period - that along with the supplements I'm on already I'll be a walking pharmacy!

Bunnygirlie Mon 10-Feb-14 11:10:56

Boo! Wow what a morning, things suddenly feel very real!

IamKuma Mon 10-Feb-14 11:18:34

bunny good news I hope. Don't keep us hanging!

SidneyBristow Mon 10-Feb-14 11:21:37

Ooh Kuma check you out with the early morning appointment! What made them recommend the DHEA and Q10? DH jokes that we rattle when we walk bc I have us on all the things they said they'd recommend if DH was shown to have a DNA fragmentation issue - figured we'd spend the money on the antioxidants rather than on the test AND the antiox's.

Boodle the first day I did my downregging sniffs, I vomited once and tried to a second time. Since then I've been sick on two other occasions but I'm finding that some days I feel great, and others I feel unnaturally tired, nauseous, and juuuuust on the verge of a hurl that never comes blush. It's usually most intense in the a.m. up til about 2 hours after my first sniff mid-morning.

Bunny thinking of you today; it must be nerve-wracking but I am so excited for you to finally be at this point thanks

AFM still no AF, so that makes 3-4 days late; fell asleep at 8:45 last night and still overwhelmingly tired, and nauseous. Yes I know what it sounds like, but I don't want to test just yet - would be disappointed at a BFN even though being late is a common effect of the drug. I've had a "full" feeling for days, never full-on cramps though. If not for that I'd feel more hopeful confused

Bunnygirlie Mon 10-Feb-14 11:22:08

Sorry, I feel I'm in a bit of a daze.

Saw one little flashing blob, amazing!

Thunderpantsarego Mon 10-Feb-14 11:48:07

grin bunny!!! Hooray!!

Oh meant to say - because I am a dodgy thyroid person if you wanted any reassurance- I'm now nearly 35 weeks pregnant

Hello to everyone else <waves>

BecauseIsaidS0 Mon 10-Feb-14 11:58:53

Thunder, oh really? Did you have to get it fixed or did it just happen anyway?

Kuma, good news! Let me know if you'd like a last glass of wine beforehand grin

In the meantime, we just took a taxi to a restaurant and I found the taxi really smelly. DH didn't notice a thing.

ladybunnikins Mon 10-Feb-14 14:09:53

Kuma, can I ask what dose of Q10 they recommend? Sounds like you have a nice clear plan!

IamKuma Mon 10-Feb-14 14:22:53

lady she said 600mg per day. I had already read that elsewhere. She also recommended Vit D during the winter.

BlueBirdy Mon 10-Feb-14 14:29:29

BUNNY!! Hooray!! smile congratulations on little bunnyblob Really great news!!

Kuma that all sounds really positive! Hope travel plans don't affect things too much - our 4 week hol has put us back by at least 3 months which at the moment seems like ages!

Sid OMG I salute your resilience!! I know the disappointment at a BFN is horrible but I wouldn't be able to function in your shoes! What antioxidants are you on? We're taking grape seed extract which is a cheaper version of pycnogenol. Hopping it will improve DH's morph issue! I know you don't want to get your hopes up but I have got my FX for you!!

Thunderpantsarego Mon 10-Feb-14 16:59:49

because well in short I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in March 2013 after blood tests following mmc in Nov 2012. Despite NHS ref range of <5 for TSH, I kicked up a fuss to work to get it under 2. It took a few months and thyroxine changes to get it below 2 and I got my bfp the month after that. So... Could be a coincidence but I know what I'll be aiming for if I want to conceive again! Does that help at all?

PuppyMummy Mon 10-Feb-14 17:52:58

Aquarius FUFC stands for fu*k you fertility clinic/consultant!

it refers to a berry who is about to undergo ivf but manages a miraculous natural bfp in the nick of time! of which they remain eternally greatful smile
