We've run out of room on Karbea's Jan IVF thread and it is too much fun to stop! We're all getting into comfy clothes and enjoying the side effects and surprises (and occasionally some hand holding).

Just marking my place smile

<hoists jodhpurs firmly over bloated abdomen>

Poor old excluded April ivf-ers grin

I figured we will have filled out another thread by April! I hope they don't feel shunned.

Are you wearing jodhpurs as a fashion statement or are you going riding? smile

Feel really down today, I am assuming this is the hormones talking. Are you feeling up/down, delilah, euro,*dildals*?

delilahbelle Sun 24-Feb-13 14:00:50

I am many feeling nauseous fairy interspersed with the occasional vom. Too physically miserable to think about my mental state, although it is mainly full of dread about work tomorrow. My room is miles from the nearest toilet if I need to chunder.

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 14:01:42

They are the only thing stretchy enough and warm enough to fit! I am off riding during ivf <glares balefully at clinic> If ivf fails I am buying a horse though. Or at least investigating getting a share or loan thing going.

oh poor you! I am nowhere near as bad, just a general low level queasiness which ramps up when I wake up or when I'm tired.

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 14:02:18

I mean I am not allowed, not that I have gone off in order to ride. You know what I mean.

delilahbelle Sun 24-Feb-13 14:04:51

I keep on telling myself it's a good thing... I swear though if this pregnancy doesn't work out I'm through with IVF (famous last words)

Seems a bit odd that they would forbid horseback riding! What about riding a bike? Unless you're doing some Wild West manoeuvres I would have thought the risk of a fall or accident are the same on a bike as on a horse.

I have told myself that if the IVF doesn't work I'm buying a motorcycle! I used to ride years ago and have always wanted to go back to it, TTC has slightly got in the way. I would love to try horse riding as well.

It is a good thing, delilah although I know it must not seem like it at all.

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 14:33:44

Don't know sad I suppose you are higher and on an unpredictable living creature, who might buck or fall on you heavily. I did sneak a ride in early on, and rising trot was uncomfortable with stimulated ovaries. And I suppose my tits would not thank me for any sort of bouncing at the moment. But I do want one though.

Well I felt like a right old thickie trying to find you all. Did it after much cursing and random tapping of buttons on the iPad.

I bought a four pack of bounty bars whilst I was out. Anyone fancy one ? Come on, we have loose fitting trousers so anything goes.

If this doesn't work out for me, I'm tempted to take a career break and go travelling. Feck knows what with but it seems like a nice idea.

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 14:47:07

My partner is buying a sports car. Apparently...

Nokkie73 Sun 24-Feb-13 14:52:25

I sense that this may not come to pass, Northey.

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 14:54:27

Well ideally I will be pregnant, so he will instead have to buy something staid and sensible. But if I'm not, he will just never get organised to buy anything anyway, so who cares?!

EuroShaggleton Sun 24-Feb-13 15:03:35

Afternoon ladies! We did fill that thread rather quickly, didn't we?

Nokkie73 Sun 24-Feb-13 15:05:50

So what's the story with the 2ww testing business then ?

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 15:06:19

What do you mean, nok?

Nokkie73 Sun 24-Feb-13 15:08:50

Well at what point can you test ? I'm a bit behind you and Delilah and fairy and I'm a proper nosey bitch so am thinking the 2ww will be a living torture if you can't test everyday. Also didn't get the getting trigger shot out of your system point either. Grateful for any tips.....

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 15:12:45

Ok, well, if you POAS the day they collect your eggs, it will be positive, because the trigger shot you gave yourself two days before (to ripen your eggs) is made of hcg, the pregnancy hormone. That takes a few days (say a week?) to metabolise out of your system. Some people test every day to see the bfps vanish. At that point, that know that any future bfp wil be because an embryo has implanted.

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 15:14:17

You'll be told to test 14-16 days after egg collection, depending on the clinic. Some people crack and test early, naturally. As I've learnt today, 10dp egg collection is too early...

Nokkie73 Sun 24-Feb-13 15:21:45

Oh thanks for that Northey. Very useful advice. At least I can manage my own expectations during the 2ww as I was a bit worried about this part of the process. As a reward, you can have a bounty bar, a bag of chilli crackers and a voucher for a heated onesie.

Sharonbenn Sun 24-Feb-13 15:32:47

Here you all are! <pulls up a chair and puts the kettle on> I had to search for Fairy in the end after going through the whole list of threads. Blimey there is some varied chat going on.

Is there only space for 999 posts then?

Nokkie73 Sun 24-Feb-13 15:44:21

Hi Sharon !

Sharonbenn Sun 24-Feb-13 15:54:02

Hi Noks

Do I remember correctly that you are at Guys? If so, so am I and we have pretty close cycles so that's good x
