Welcome everyone from the old 'Mid 30s and TTC for the first time' thread. And welcome newbies too. Don't mind the poster in the corner dipping pregnancy test sticks into her glass of gin.

Hey Ski - congrats! I am so excited for you. grin This news is definitely going to be what keeps my chin up if this month is not the one for me, I'd got myself into a real "third time lucky" POV, now I can get through to at least 6 happily!!!! smile And keep drinking gin.

Fingers crossed for you laurielou too

Bad luck Skater - are you temping - do you know for sure that you are ov'ing?

Aussieng Mon 22-Jun-09 23:00:19

blush I wasn't advising you to keep drinking gin btw...

...I was saying that I'm going to...for now...

Slainte everyone.

When are you going to test Aussie? Its getting knife edge around here.

skaterrr <donttry dons half moon glasses and peers earnestly> I read that your LP is always more or less the same length, so if your cycles are different lengths, then the difference is the day on which you ovulate.

So basically try to gauge when you ov. I've tried the temping, but doesn't work so well for me. But I now have a new shiney pink thermometer so will give it another go.

Jaysus, I'll definitely be snorting babydust through a rolled up fifty note soon...
Anyone want a snifter?

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 08:03:32

I bought a brand new bottle of gin less than two weeks ago. Was this also a pg trigger?

SkaterGrrrrl Tue 23-Jun-09 08:45:23

PMSL at sniffing babydust through a note.

I might just get a kit and test to see when my "2 days" are. This will also satisfy the overwhelming urge to POAS.

Have a good day, gin hounds!

Aussieng Tue 23-Jun-09 08:55:22

hi donttry - I'm no-where near testing. I'm on the A B game at present [knackered emoticon]

OK so "to do list"

- Book flight for 31 weeks hence
- Buy really expensive bottle of gin
- Buy mooncup or bumber bag of tampax
- ????

Aussieng Tue 23-Jun-09 08:56:34

what is wrong with me?????????


laurielou Tue 23-Jun-09 08:59:40

Knock, knock, can I come in?

<gazes around new place, mmm nice cream walls>

ski this is really very exciting news, CONGRATULATIONS!! New bottle of gin was definitely a trigger.

Well, still no AF for me - CD 32. But last month AF arrived day 33, so we'll see. I'd like to know one way or the other by the weekend as DP & I are off for a weekend away - HURRAH. OK, so the timing in my cycle could be better.............

Decided against doing a shoulderstand in yoga last night, just in case, & lay with legs in the air instead (not for the first time in my life wink. But then rather embarrassingly I fell asleep at the end & woke myself up with a jump & a snore. I'm hoping I can blame this on PG & not the onset of - memory woman, what's the illness where you just fall asleep?

Jaysus, sleeping, memory loss - hope I am PG, otherwise I'm turning into my Nana.

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 09:13:33

laurielou according to the charts I conceived the night of my yoga class...

I'm going to hang around here if you lot don't mind because you make me laugh every single day!

laurielou Tue 23-Jun-09 09:20:20

Oh crap, really? I'm usually exhausted after yoga & its all I can do to drive home, shower & slip into bed (fast asleep before 10 pm).

Apart from a couple of weeks ago when for some reason after yoga I felt "energised"..........

Once again, oh crap!

<off to check gusset again for the millionth time this morning. Colleagues think I have a urine infection>

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 09:28:52

laurielou It was AFTER a step class too. It was definitely not the A-game that night, in fact it was probably more special needs secretarial college. wink

laurielou Tue 23-Jun-09 09:34:37

You did yoga & step on the same night? Are you mad?

grin grin at "special needs secretarial college"

Why do I TTC, then as AF approaches go into full on panic mode, then feel sad when AF arrives? Is this normal? Or do I need to leave the gin palace (shoeless, smudged mascara, professing love to everyone & staggering) & get on an insanity bus to You'llneverconceivebecauseyou'rementals-ville?

VeryAnnieGertie Tue 23-Jun-09 09:44:09

Oooh what a lovely new place! A palace indeed! <slumps into armchair nearest bar>

Ski - Yay! yay! yay! <skips wildly around the place sloshing gin everywhere> I am however slightly purturbed by the mention of the bottle of gin you bought two weeks ago - are you saying there is gin still in it?

laurie I do believe the gin palace is actually the final destination on the insanitybus. Or the starting point. I think the route goes round and round anyway.

We need a "full panic mode" emoticon.

VeryAnnieGertie Tue 23-Jun-09 09:46:09

Skatergrrrl & donttry, what really annoys me about the ov thing is that if your LP is constant but your cycles vary it could blimmin' be any time! - and I'm not yet willing to temp cos that would admit we are actually TCC rather than simply going to have an accident...

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 09:49:33

VeryAnnie are you saying we're a bunch of gin-addled window-lickers? hmm

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 09:49:59

... getting driven around on our Sunshine bus?

VeryAnnieGertie Tue 23-Jun-09 09:53:40

Well - if the gin-soaked Choo fits..... grin

Cosmosis Tue 23-Jun-09 10:03:57

I like the new gaff, lovely shade of cream on the walls.

ski I'm soooo giddy for you!! I'm jumping up and down in my chair and really really restraining myself from going all "hun"like and hugging you!! Yay!! Oh and damn right you're sticking round here. If you go anywhere I'll hunt you down and paint your house pink. Remember, we know where you live [threatening emoticon]

I had a Pimms last night. Bloody lovely.

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 10:06:27

Cosmo it's not just me, there are two others around here (I'll not mention names) who need to put the gin down, wee on a stick and "man up"! wink

I'm still not 100% convinced truth be told. This is our 8th cycle of trying and I think part of me had accepted that I had a hostile environment.

Geekylass Tue 23-Jun-09 10:16:09

Ski - hooray!! Congratulations! Breathes sigh of relief - now I'm not the only senile mum-to-be on this board smile are you in shock?

Am going to the doctor's tomorrow to let them know I tested positive for baby. I know it's daft, but I am nipping out in a minute to buy another stick to pee on just to make sure that nothing has happened. Will let you know how I get on.

Will leave you now to your shortbus antics - please, someone have a drink for me!

skihorse Tue 23-Jun-09 10:22:34

geekylass shock AND disbelief! We didn't get much sleep last night... both very anxious. Kept giggling to each other and thinking "uh oh, we've really gone and done it this time".

Cosmosis Tue 23-Jun-09 10:30:48

ski I know, but I'm ignoring them until they mtfu and poas to confirm it. [glares at them over glasses] [pulls gin out of their hands and swigs it herself]
