Ladies, Fred title says it all; we are the ones who shag as much as our men can cope with in order to get upduffed without the stress of scientific whatnots!

Fred rules (copied and adapted from previous Fred)

1. Thou shalt shag as much as humanly possible in order to get upduffed.
2. Thou shalt not partake of OPKs, temping, or charting.
3. Thou shalt keep symptom spotting to a minimum.
4. Thou shalt share with your fredmates where needed.

JSing lingo

ERTD = Evil Red Tide of Dooooooommmmmmm. Or AF to most others. Also know as 'the witch', 'bitch witch' and 'that one with the red shiny convertible'

Viroid = This is you, dear poster. This is from the first JS thread when someone tried to type 'ladies' and it autocorrected to 'Viroids' - so there you go!

Pant snot = Egg white cervical mucus.

Doing a kitten = Getting upduffed soon after joining (warning: may induce envy in other posters).

POAS = Pee On A Stick (of the pregnancy detecting kind, not from a tree). Also known as PIAR (Pee In A Ramekin - cos we're posh birds innit). Or PIATLH (Tea light holder) PIAWG (Wine glass) or anything else you care to pee in! PONF = Pee on Nigel Farage. Self explanatory, who wouldn't?

ROC - Receptacle of Choice - what one chooses to use for the task of POAS. Option decorations include photographs of political leaders.

JIAC = Jizz in a Cup. Preferable to jizz on the carpet or jizz in the eye. This one's for the lucky men in our lives.

Shagging like something = JSing like a teenage nymphomaniac.

Giving a hooya = Giving a much needed slap to a fellow poster in danger of slipping into ttc obsession. Warning - this may happen to you if you start trying to POAS at 5dpo. PUT. THE. PISSY. STICK. DOWN. IT'S TOO EARLY!

Contraband = Of COURSE none of us EVER partake of any silly OPKs or temp charting. They are Contraband.

Icing = ovulating. Another autocorrect development!

Getting your Cape on = planning some serious pouncing on DH/DP

TWOT - Two Weeks of Torture. AKA Schroedinging!
TWPU - Two Week Piss Up!

Keeping your gingers = fingers crossed, yet another autocorrect development! Shortened to 'gx'

Doing A lemon = Testing WAAAAAAAY to early!

Happy Christmas shagging, shaggers!

I'd love to be incubating fluff balls!!!

jellypi3 Sun 07-Dec-14 18:34:25

Oh boy that was so embrarrasing, Tesco delivery driver just arrived with weekly shopping, I bought a FRER for safe keeping (for when I really need one).

Turns up, 1 substitution on the fecking list, and it was the pregnancy test. So this old man turns round to me and says "Your pregnancy test has been swapped for a digital one, that's lucky!".......

Thank you viroids for your posts towards of the last Fred.

I'm still not sure on how to react to the news that there is a strong chance I have PCOS. I feel more able to post a longer post than I did last night though.

Tink I'm not sure what my progesterone result was. She told me she wasn't too worried by my hormone results other than LH being slightly high and testosterone being too high. As for actual numbers of anything I'm not sure what they were. She showed me them on screen and I meant to ask for a print out as I know some of the lovely ladies on here could have helped me with the numbers, but I was focusing on not crying in the doctors and forgot... sad

How can I check if I am icing?

I haven't been doing OPKs regularly - but when I have used them (ICs) I have always got a negative result. Mostly they are completely blank (other than control line), but I did get faint second lines a while ago now. I also had ewcm around the same time. I'm hoping that's a positive sign. But that was like a month ago or so now anyway. I also had that short light bleed on 17th/18th Nov.

As for other symptoms the only real one I have is my weight. I really struggle to lose weight - It seems that despite eating relatively healthily and trying to exercise I can't seem to lose anything. When I'm being extremely strict I drop a couple of pounds, but I can't keep up the extremely strict-ness all the time. I'm rubbish. sad The doctor suggested ensuring that I am eating a lot of low GI foods, so I need to go and research this. I already eat things like wholemeal bread, wholemeal pasta, etc. but I still eat what I'm guessing is too much of things like breads, pastas, rice, etc.

I should be getting a date for an ultrasound scan in the post.

Oh, and the doctor also suggested that I start taking metformin. Starting at one 500mg tablet a day for the first week, 2 tablets a day the second week, and 3 a day from the third week onwards.

We've had friends staying this weekend - including a 3 year old. I found that particularly hard to deal with. Especially DH being around her. In my head I had it that we're never going to have kids, and seeing him playing with her just made me cry. Possible overreaction I admit but I couldn't help it.
