Reinstating the gin deck from a previous bus for AF arrivals, and stocking up on pineapple juice and Brazil nuts, fx for lots of BFPs this month.

sammylou1 Mon 13-Jul-15 15:01:38

Hope no one minds me starting a new bus, but I need you girls to distract me now! Xx

DizzyMerry Mon 13-Jul-15 15:07:12

I was just about to start one sammy but saw you'd already done it, thanks.

Will do another opk later and I'm hoping it's darker. Should just be grateful really coz my lines are usually faint and never get darker.

sammylou1 Mon 13-Jul-15 15:11:42

Fx for a positive later for you smile

DizzyMerry Mon 13-Jul-15 15:12:48

Where is everyone today? When will you have the transfer sammy?

Aufwiedersehenpetrarch Mon 13-Jul-15 15:15:25

sammy I asked a question re fanny bullets and sex on the board. I think it is still on the first page as there was some feedback on people's experiences. I'm taking mine the fanjobanjo way. It is very tedious however. sad
And yes, what dizzy asked. When is the transfer?

sammylou1 Mon 13-Jul-15 15:16:44

At work I guess! Typical on the day that I am about, no one else is!

It'll be either Thursday or Saturday, fx for 5 day transfer on Saturday! Xx

sammylou1 Mon 13-Jul-15 15:17:58

Yeah I'm sure, I just can face putting them anywhere else! Xx

Dizzy yes I the next 24 hours ish. Keep testing!

Bored at work. It issues sad yawn!!!

Mummyofonesofar Mon 13-Jul-15 15:27:40

And just remembered I'm not meant to be drinking water due to wanting to test at home time. Just stopped so will have to wait until half 5 now!

DizzyMerry Mon 13-Jul-15 15:52:48

Another one bored at work here! Have file reviews and reports to do but I've been good and worked my arse off over the weekend so not much to do but we're not seeing any clients for the next couple of days until it's all completed.

Fx the rest of this journey goes smoothly for you sammy.

Auf how long do you have to keep on with the bullets?

I'll be testing again later mummy and fx it does happen in the next 24 hours. I managed to take my temp today too!

DizzyMerry Mon 13-Jul-15 15:53:37

Hope you manage to hang on until then mummy!

Kirjava Mon 13-Jul-15 15:58:07

I'm symptom spotting at 1dpo. I'm an idiot.

Kirjava Mon 13-Jul-15 15:59:50

sammy I've got all my fingers and toes crossed for you! X

sammylou1 Mon 13-Jul-15 16:10:01

Lol - mummy I've do e that before! I find as long as you're not drinking a litre every could of hours my opks are still correct.

Kir - 1dpo?! That's got to be a record! Lol. Thanks for the luck smile

spinningirl10 Mon 13-Jul-15 16:19:52

Thanks for new bus Sammysmile
18 eggs is amazing! Take it easy now and fx for you.

Merry and Mummy, hope you both get your positive opk later.

Symptom spotting at 1 dpo, love it! We are cycle buddies, I am also 1dpogrin

Nomio230 Mon 13-Jul-15 16:23:12

1DPO is pretty impressive, Kir!

Sammy, an exciting but emotional day for you I guess. I am so pleased you got lots of lovely eggs. Now you just need them to grow for a few days & you might get your baby!

Dizzy, I would say either tonight or tomorrow you will get a positive. CoC!

Auf/ Sammy, I have been using the bullets for 3 months now & got on ok with them. I have only ever used the front door, not the back, so can't comment on that! I would say to buy shares in pantyliners, because you will get through a fair few. It is also slightly disconcerting when you go to toilet & there is waxy slime floating on top of the water, but it seems to flush ok. Overall, they are a slight hassle, but no big deal. They have worked wonders for my LP, so I am a big fan.

Mummy, have you been using normal OPKs too? It might be that you have already OVd & it just didn't show up on the digital. I found those ones rubbish.

I am feeling very blah today. I think the reality has set in that I can't get any help until next year & I might well never be lucky enough to have children. I just want to curl up in bed & cry. sad

DizzyMerry Mon 13-Jul-15 16:41:24

I know that feeling too well nomio but it's not the reality at all, though it may seem like it at the moment. The reality is some of us have to keep pushing ourselves forward and getting through a lot of heartache to get what we want and it will all be worth it in the end. You will have children lovely lady, just keep walking through this.

Yay for being 1dpo spinning and kir. Fx very tightly for you both.

Hello lovelies <waves> sorry I have been AWOL! I've been a bit down sad I had my scan today to see if my miscarriage was complete (it was) but the sonographer took at least 20 mins (without saying a word) and I was lying there alternating between feelings of horror that she had found a tumour and a glimmer of hope that some how there was still a baby in there. But no, she was just inexperienced and had to call for help sad
but the worse was still to come....... A nurse called me in, (after sitting me in a room full of bibles and tissues) sat me down and said the pregnancy test was negitive (to which she laughed) so that's that, you can leave now, here are your discharge notes!
All afternoon I've been really upset that she laughed,It may have been a nervous laugh, or an uncomfortable laugh, but it was a laughsad I wish I would have said "and why is that funny" but it just seemed so surreal. All afternoon it's bothered me that she laughed, no sympathy, no I'm sorry this happened, just a laugh sad
anyway, sorry for the me post. I haven't had a chance to catch up, but I am back now and ready to take up residency on the gin terrace, where I will get drunk and cry a lot!!

Kirjava Mon 13-Jul-15 16:58:35

Oh rellie I'm so sorry. I'm sure it was a nervous laugh but how awful for you. Thinking of you. We're all here for you x

Kirjava Mon 13-Jul-15 16:59:17

spinning when are you testing lovely?

Mummyofonesofar Mon 13-Jul-15 18:05:41

DizzyM I needed a wee as soon as I got home at 4.15 - I drink so much water I struggle to go without and not need a wee as my body is still processing the last hours worth! So testing in 15 mins or so.

nomio I have been using normal opks too so haven't missed it yet. You will get there lovely. I just know it x

Yay for ov spinning & kir enjoy the tww, hope to see you there soon!

nymph how awful Hun. Some people shouldn't work in hospitals! What a twat. Big hugs. Glad you are here again so can talk about it as much or as little as you need xx

MadameLeota Mon 13-Jul-15 18:20:00

I have a bit of a silly question if any of you lovely ladies can help. I've been charting and temping and OPKing and 8 days ago had my first positive OPK. Had 3 positives on Internet cheapies, had a temp dip and 3 days of EWCM. All looked good, timed DTD accordingly. FF gave me a nice solid ov line for 5 days ago. However I've had loads of thick creamy CM (almost mixed with EWCM at times but not very stretchy at all) since ov. Had a bit of a temp dip today so on a whim did an OPK and immediately got a strong positive.

We haven't DTD in 4 days and usually we try to put in a good supply before ov as DH'S sperm is borderline not there. He's working a late although I've already informed him of emergency DTDing when his shift finishes, but should I be worried? Do you think I've had delayed ov? Sorry to be a bother, I feel I'm dwelling on it when no matter what's happened it's too late to do anything about it!

MadameLeota Mon 13-Jul-15 18:23:48

Oh nymph that is awful, I am so sorry that happened to you. What a horrible and insensitive thing to do. No matter how awkward she may have felt (only possible reason I can think of for her reaction) she should have known better and had better training for these situations.
