Supporting ‘small changes’ into spring whilst TTC...🌱🌼🌸🍀- Fun Bus 34(1000 Posts)
Last time we actually got reported straight away, for being too fun for MN...was it a week ago?? Maybe 😋😝but they can’t hold us back as the Harry Potter speed bus flies...
We’ve worked out a fleshlight for horses on a MN bus is NOT WELCOME, but how do I know what you have in your suitcase? I’m just the driver, a passenger’s belongings is their own responsibility, and my bags have LOADS of OPKs, loads of pills, fruit, veg, wine, gin & trainers for my workouts.
We aren’t just challenging ourselves to get pregnant & trying to help each other do so, we are also trying to help each other get fitter and sharing small changes we are making in our lives and trying to inspire & support each other with these too...
Have a look at the small changes beside the names and see if you want to try them yourself or add in your own!
We are in this together 🥰♥️🙌🏻💪🏻
Spring is coming, and so are we 😘🦄🍀🌸🌷🌻🌼
And if you see mention of my blog then blame these guys they made me do it...#shamelessplug

And the name... positively restrained for our naughty bus driver @Minster2012
Thank you as always! 🥰😘
The sun is shining through the window here this morning! Here's to spring! 🍾
Thank you @Minster2012 for another thread! Did that Barre class yesterday and wanting to do another tonight so I am on track so far
Awww love the new thread title! ❤ it's so true though, we have such a great support team on here! Up's, downs, twists and U turns....we all support eachother 🤗 Thanks @Minster2012 for keeping the bus rolling....well should I say breaking speed limits of 70mph 🤣
@Minster2012 replying from the last bus! I'm not too sad about not even getting to test I think I've accepted that we'll need the 12 month tests, all is good!! Also, definitely the bitch has the worry, poor doggo, we know how she feels!!
Taking my seat on the new bus - thanks @Minster2012!
I am loving the positivity @minster2012 ❤️
For the first time in my pregnancy I feel literally like I am going to actually be sick this morning. So I needed some positivity!!!
@Minster2012 thanks for the bus. Taking my seat. Apologies everyone, I've been a very crappy passenger the last few busses. I've only managed to skim read and have missed loads I'm sure. Especially all the newbies sorry! I'm not sure I should even be here, OH and I have even been talking about stopping ttc.
I love the theme and name of this bus, great idea! Especially like @blackcurrantqueen's small change, might adopt that one 😊
Thanks for new bus @Minster2012 lovely intro and title 💕
Jumping on at the back ☺️ Loving all the positivity!
Place marking! Scan at half past and I'm pretty much ready to just run away and hyperventilate in a corner somewhere!
@Gem176 good luck with your scan!!
@Katao no apologies needed, you gotta do what's right for you and your mental health. You know we'll be here once you're ready to talk again
@gem176 sending love and hugs, you got this girl ❤️❤️🤗🤗🤗
@Gem176 good luck lovely!! 🤞🏾🍀
@Katao ah sorry to hear. Please do still dip in and out as you are able to. Take care ♥️
Thansk for the new bus @Minster2012 tho you'll be annoying some folks on mumsnet because you haven't given them a title they can grumble and complain about 😂
Don't leave @Katao that's why there are some newly installed sunroof seats, you don't have to be ttc you can just enjoy the view and the banter. DH and I have been talking more and more about looking into the adoption route as ttc was just getting too much of an emotional rollercoaster. We haven't fully decided either way yet but def giving it a lot of serious consideration.
Sending lots of positive vibes your way for the scan @gem176
Just had my call from the fertility clinic, all my tests are clear tho still waiting on SA, so she basically just said lose weight and that it's not fair that most overweight people can get pregnant easily and some can't and I'm just one of the ones that can't. Not gonna lie I sat on the phone with big silent tears plopping from my face feeling absolutely shit about myself while she went on about all the ways I can lose weight (she was just trying to be helpful but it just made me feel like shit), my BMI is 35.9 so it's not like I don't already know I need to lose weight! She didn't seem to care about the 5CPs either just lose weight was the only advice. I've been feeling so motivated these past 2 weeks too and was getting fitter and healthier not actually for ttc just for me but I feel so shit now that it's going to take all my will power to stay on track. 😭 Ah well time to put my (very) big girl pants on, wipe the tears and go put on a fake smile to do the rest of my online teaching pretend I'm happy as Larry 🙄
Oh @DKDK123 I'm so sorry to hear that they didn't have anything particularly constructive to tell you. Losing weight is so very very hard.
I'm more than happy to cheer you on either with practical advice or general encouragement - I lost 3 stone last year but can feel it creeping back so need to get back on it - this bus is so helpful with the recent exercise chat!
Quick pop in, manic day so might be absent a bit,
@DKDK123 we are with you all the way so follow our challenges & we will help you.
@Katao feel free to just hop on the roof deck and pop in and say hi when you want 😘don't let it take over then we are here for when you need
@Gem176 waiting for good news
DS was actually trying to light a fire whilst I was on a call this morning, ironically a call arranging new fire extinguishers for the office and the annual check/service of the extinguishers, he literally put the logs in and was getting the matches
Ps, DH has Agreed to doubt the greatest showman dance thing with me tonight
And DS abs I making cakes now so it's needed 😂
