Right then! Come here if you are 4-12 weeks and can't stop fretting. Didn't think anything could be worse than the 2WW? Think again!

That's great news Motor! I bet you're counting down to the 1st!

Nook rather than punching DH, I just fart at him.

My boobs were a 32F to start with sad I fear they will explode.

Does anyone else not know what they want to eat?

NookNook Mon 22-Jul-13 19:23:22

I'm going out for dinner! Controversial for a monday night.

I would NEVER win a farting competition with DH.

My boobs were A now B. A long way to go before F!

NoMaybeAboutIt Mon 22-Jul-13 19:59:31

Swapsies Nook?

Where are you going for dinner?

I wouldn't nirmall win, but I am giving him a run for his money wink

Motor, my first beta at 13dp5dt was 1345 and 48 hrs later it was 2571. I never had it tested after that. Yes, I love my new name smile I literally felt like puking recently whenever I saw the word s***k in my name so I've changed it. Plus it was time to get the RadFems off my scent once and for all wink

My tits were DD before pregnancy and now they are an immeasurable pair of bicycle-pumped beach balls. They're beauties to look at but I shriek in horror when th'usband attempts to put his knob between 'em, so tit action is out the window smile

I'm struggling with the nausea, if I'm completely honest, and although I know I need to eat to shift that cloying sickness my befugged brain can't/won't make any sensible decisions.

Farts: Mine are frapping out at a rate of knots and utterly fucking stink. Seriously, a decaying corpse would smell more pleasant than the heinous whiffs following me around the house.

Haha Juicy you just made me laugh so much a bit of wee came out grin

I know Juicy. I enjoyed your comments on the 'sperm donor' situation. Until they were removed wink

Just think Juice, you've got your own set of groupies.

NookNook Mon 22-Jul-13 21:24:33

People have something to hide behind on here. Everyone else misses you on that thread and you have been a rock to so many. Don't let her get to you. Xxx

NookNook Mon 22-Jul-13 21:28:10

Oh sorry just looked at the other thread! Good for you Pram

PramelaAftersun Tue 23-Jul-13 12:02:37

Morning, darlings! How are we preggos this morning? My lovely maternity clothes arrived from ASOS this morning and I'm currently wearing some vair hip trousers and a top. Cheap as chips in the sale, too! I know it seems crazy buying maternity but I got 4 items for £48 including jeans so I won't see it as a waste if the worst were to happen. I really can't cope in normal clothes with the bloating; my abdomen is colossal.

NoMaybeAboutIt Tue 23-Jul-13 12:32:02

Prammy thank god!

How does this maternity gear work? You buy your normal size? My stomach is colossal of an evening. As is the boobage.

So, I have to go and pick up more Crinone today from the clinic. I terrified myself, as I was clearing out the remnants, (who says IVF isn't sexy) and it was a bit pink. But there's no actual bloody, it's just in the gel. Logical me says that's a ok. Hormonal, messy me says 'oh my god, it's all going wrong, that'll teach me for booking my scan and GP appointment'.

Slap me with your colossal norks Prammy

NookNook Tue 23-Jul-13 13:48:46

Maybe poor you! It really is like having two 'yous'. I've actually convinced myself that I am no longer pregnant.
Prammy can I share with Maybe? One beachball each?

PramelaAftersun Tue 23-Jul-13 14:41:18

Yeah, Maybe, you simply order your usual size (ie zero - if you're a fucking smug twat) and they come adapted for any size bump. I've got some - wait for it - denim joggers with elasticated hems. Sounds gross, yes? No. Fit as. They can be worn with heels or flats or wedges and are terrifically comfy. Warning: joggers/jeggings have no construction or support at all on the arse so if you hate your bum you will fecking loathe it in these.

Luckily I'm Pramela Anderson so I'm as pert as a nymph's bristols grin

NoMaybeAboutIt Tue 23-Jul-13 14:51:01

grin Prammy size zero it is then I bloody wish

You sound dead comfy. I may soon have to join you. According to my mum she was the size of a house by 8 weeks. Oh, the joy.

Nook. You are preggers. Fact. I had my meltdown with the nurse. Apparently I'm 'totally normal' who am i kidding

Your scans on the 13th too isn't it? What time?

NookNook Tue 23-Jul-13 15:47:45

9.40am. You?

I think it all seems to be going really slowly! Not sure what I expected to happen. I'm also really jealous of Prammy's morning sickness! <Weirdo alert>

When did you have your meltdown?

And how pregnant are we all? I'm 5+1.

Where's Motor?

FlowersBlown Tue 23-Jul-13 16:02:11

Come on people this is seriously mean. I saw this thread in active convos, thought I'd see how you were all doing and found it be a freaking vipers nest. I'm an actual person you know, going through the same shit that you've all gone through and I don't need more shit heaped on top of it.

I made a comment disagreeing with the stance that another poster had taken, on fucking blastocysts of all things, a poster that has no problem expressing themselves in the most strident terms, who I felt would be able to take a mild critique of their opinion on an issue. I didn't see the jokes about sperm donors but I can imagine I've heard them all by now anyway. Yes actually, I have discounted going to Lloyds bar on a saturday night and getting a fucking shag. Ha ha ha.

My other supposed crime is that I'm following you around the site to pick on you or something. I didn't post anywhere else that you did, and i wasnt the person who reported you so what I would be doing seeking you out there in order to cause problems for you is difficult to understand. I've been on MN for years, I didn't join just to talk about IVF, I'm interested in lots of discussions, and I happened to come across a few places where you've posted. If that freaks you out, then I suggest you don't post anywhere else because it's a public forum and everything you write is available to be read by absolutely anyone.

So these 2 things, one that happened and one that didn't, are enough for you to bad mouth me, in quite aggressive terms, across 2 different threads. And not only that, but others are joining in. I'm not some special snowflake that can't take criticism, but this isn't that is it? It's pure spite and it's horrible.

No doubt this will give you loads of ammunition for your jokes and laffs but I hope at least that somebody will read this and think twice about joining in the next time. It's really easy when you're in a group to pick on somebody who is identified as an outsider by a dominant member of that group. It makes you feel like a gang and like you belong. But on here the other person can read what you've written and it hurts. Slag me off all you like if it makes you feel better but keep it on PM please.

NoMaybeAboutIt Tue 23-Jul-13 16:02:39

I'm at midday. It is dragging isn't it! I had to go to the clinc this afternoon for more drugs and just hada chat with the nurse. She was great.

I'm 4+6. Still actually can't get my head around saying 'I'm pregnant'

NoMaybeAboutIt Tue 23-Jul-13 16:05:07

Hang on a minute, are you referring to my comment on sperm donors? That was nothing to do with you or really anything o do with sperm donors. I would never ever make light of donor anything.

PramelaAftersun Tue 23-Jul-13 16:28:22

Flowers, I was hurt by your post saying I was 'apportioning blame' towards those who were not being considered for, or who had not looked into the possibility of, five day blastos. You then told the thread yesterday that I am to be found 'all over mumsnet causing trouble' and it was 'no wonder' if I had been banned. You just seem like a crosspatch to me and you have got your way: I will no longer be supporting the girls on the egg buddies thread, I will be sticking to this one (unless, of course, you report me again).

Look at your own sardonic posts about me before coming here whimpering about being slagged off. These girls don't want to hear it. They have done nothing wrong except nod and say 'ahhh' like any neutral person would when someone is having a rant.

PramelaAftersun Tue 23-Jul-13 16:31:46

Oh, and the 'sperm donor issue' was a reference to the thread started by International where it was debated whether a sperm bank was necessarily a more responsible choice than shagging an unsuspecting fuck buddy with the precise aim of getting pregnant.

You remember that, don't you? The thread where my posts were deleted for slagging off feminism?

PramelaAftersun Tue 23-Jul-13 16:39:15

Pram, 7+5, scan on Friday at 8+1.

NoMaybeAboutIt Tue 23-Jul-13 16:56:53

<bows down in awe of Pram's diffedness>

PramelaAftersun Tue 23-Jul-13 16:57:16

Oh, for goodness' sake! I feel guilty now, Flowers, for being accusatory about you and bringing it to this thread. I couldn't find an olive branch emoticon so please have these as an apology for being rotten thanks

Can we be friends?
