You can't beat a Freddie Mercury-themed title to get a new thread going grin

I'm here, thanks mol

BeedlesPineNeedles Tue 10-Nov-15 09:37:23

I'm here too!

AF arrived this morning, which isn't bad considering I haven't had any progesterone support since the day after EC. Depending on how long this cycle is and when the clinic shut for Xmas and when I ov next cycle we could possibly fit in ET, but I Think I'd rather wait until january.

Waves to hinky not much longer to wait. My suggestion for a boy's name that we wouldn't be able to use is William (w is pronounced V here so it just sounds wrong!)

mol woohoo for the correctly timed rat smacking :-)

What a delightful new thread - I love what you've done with this place.

Blimey, AF seems quick to arrive Beedles but I guess time has flown since EC. It will be so nice to have a Christmas where you haven't got to worry about anything IVF related. Beedles Jnrs will be all tucked up in the freezer, ready to burst into life in the new year. We may even be Double Whammy partners depending on when my cycle starts.

Mol you seem full of beans! Hurrah for beans rather than doubts! Shows you have made absolutely the right decision smile

AFM, it's 3 DPO...<drums fingers> it too early to test yet?

QueenMolotov Tue 10-Nov-15 10:50:33

Waves to keep and I'm brooking for a 2016 Double Whammy for beedles and Imps, as well as many other much-wanted Brooking Babies smile

I do feel spritely, 'tis true. I think it has a lot to do with awesome, worry-free sex (last night and the night before - woohoo!) but it's mostly because of letting go of the fears I had. The worries will always be there, I suppose, but I'm hopeful we can work around any problems. I just feel like by doing this, we will have an answer one way or the other within a year. Also, I feel more positive because I'm getting clearer information from my DH and DM.

As well as lots of very welcome support from you lovely people here on this thread :-)

Hi Lolly - oh dear, how confusing confused. Has this happened before?

lollyb20 Tue 10-Nov-15 15:53:44

Nope never before i have been regular like clockwork since my first ever period :/ x

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 16:03:41

Well that is utter utter bollocks then. Bodies will never fail to think of new ways to confuse us/get our hopes up/let us down. How long have you been TTC?

Pastamancer Tue 10-Nov-15 16:10:33

Welcome Lolly, joining this thread guarantees you a BFP, we just need to find you an agreeable pee stick.

lollyb20 Tue 10-Nov-15 16:13:41

Been TTC #1 just over a year although for about 6 months it was half heartedly

Haha thanks you have made me smile today smile x

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 16:35:30

Stick with us Loll - I can't even begin to tell you how supportive the other lovely ladies on this thread are. Makes TTC just that little bit easier (emotionally, not physically, obvs).

lollyb20 Tue 10-Nov-15 16:41:50

Thanks so much you have just made my day alot better smile x

Hello lolly I'm a lurker. Due dc3 in 10 days and canvassing names for our third boy. Excellent choice on the suggestion beedle ds1 is called william. Ds2 is Farley and now we need another boys name.

I really like Tom but it's my brothers name so it is too weird to name him that. Others on the potential list are Stanley, Quinn or John. So quite a wide range of options. Nothing is really jumping out at me as this little chaps name though. We have buckets of brothers/brothers in law/ nephews which rule out a good few names, then there are friends children's names and worst of all school and pre school names form the boys' classes. Just really stuck so any suggestions gratefully received although it does feel like I've been through every single name there is on earth and none is quite right...

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 18:18:11

Sullivan. Sullivan Sullivan Sullivan Sullivan Sullivan.

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 18:19:25

Or Ralph? (Pronounced Ralph, not Rafe).

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 18:20:40

Or maybe Ralph? (pronounced Rafe, not Ralph)

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 18:22:27

That said, I love Quinn, Tom, Stanley and John too!

hinkyhonk Tue 10-Nov-15 18:53:33

<narrows eyes at imps> do I know you?! Very close relative with that name...

I think Sullivan would inevitably get shortened to sully which just makes me think of monsters inc.

Any more anyone?

Imps9 Tue 10-Nov-15 19:13:55

<narrows eyes back> I don't think so. Although Auntie Doris says "hello"...

Could be shorted to Ivan #justsayin'

QueenMolotov Tue 10-Nov-15 19:24:56

William, Farley and ...


Am I warm with those names? Do any strike you?

QueenMolotov Tue 10-Nov-15 19:25:56

*Albert, not Albet
