    Tuxcat, congratulations on getting inseminated!!!
    Aren't men wussy with their part of the equation! As you say it's kinda cute (sometimes) but as I've said to my DH, why get all shy about it when they have so many blokes every single day in the porn room at any ivf clinic, as if you stand out to them at all!! DH got all weird once because he had to hand the sample cup over to a relatively young attractive embryologist. Der! Didn't worry him when it was a granny.

    And Bongley, lol re the near swear! Love it. Hope you have secured the deal!

    Skyler... I laughed at your "insemination" word, as when I tried to explain to someone at work last week what an IUI was, I ended up having to explain how race-horses etc are inseminated, before the person got it!!

    Tuxcat.... absolutely no tips for the IUI, as really I didn't think it would work, so in the TWW I ate pizza with salami and ham, soft cheeses, and various other foods you're not supposed to eat. I didn't do accupuncture (like I had in previous cycles), I didn't eat pineapple like I had in previous cycles (old wives tale) and a number of other things, so don't fret at all. Best of luck though - I have my fingers and toes crossed for you.

    Ok that beer fridge just says it all doesn't it !!! WTF !! We get to spread our legs for all and sundry, with surgical equipment shoved in and out, horrid drugs, weight gain, nausea and AF pains - where the fruck is our beer fridge!!! Or wine fridge? Poor guy has to cum in a cup with porn (hell that sounds bad!) and then gets beer provided! And people say men and women are equal in this world. OMFG. HilariousBet that whole palaver was a mans idea!!
    @Skyler thanks!!! Its all been a pretty crazy cycle really, a very different experience from where Ive been which is good as a bit of variety never killed anyone! Its funny how embarrassed they get with a cute young thing at the other end. Mind you, I haven't had any hot male Dr's so Im sure I would probably be blushing big time.

    no wine for me, only DH - Im on antibiotics otherwise I probably would have let myself have a glass. He's making up for the 2 of us tho as he just made me drive up the road to get another bottle so I made him top me up before it so its not drunken sperm

    Good on you @leyshoja, if its gonna work its gonna work regardless of a few vinos.
    @MGC Bertie - Im not doing any pineapple or acu either, I cant afford the acu anymore and it clearly hasnt gotten me a baby so I don't worry about it. That insemination word is weird - and that is hilarious that you had to explain that with the race horse thing - at least you didn't use the cow as an example!!! Ive had the worst diet and stress levels this week so looks like we're off to a promising start!!

    Holy Fruck!! Had the "Storm From Hell" come through here a little while ago!! Felt like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz at the beginning when the Tornado strikes!!! Anyhoo...have made it through to the other side in one piece (more or less).

    @leyshoja How did you fare Luv in this putrid weather?? Don't worry about having a glass or 2 of vino ok?? As @Skyler pointed out, the emby hasn't attached itself to you to get a blood supply going as yet. "Lucky" is still dividing merrily away in there none the wiser!! @tuxcat is right too. If it's a BFP it'll be one regardless of a slurp or two of wine

    @Bongley Am sure your DP will get on board after you speak to him Luv If all goes well with PD, you could be Cycling/transferring in July hopefully?? LOL down the pub for a G&T!!

    @Skyler LOFL.."didn't worry him when it was a granny"

    @MGC Bertie Bahahaha!! race horse analogy!!!

    @tuxcat PMSFruckingL at your post Luv!!! Love how you jumped DH's bones before he went over .05!!!!

    Bloody hell Bongley, Genea Sydney has a beer fridge?!! Is it located in the men's porn room? That's it, when I go there I'm gonna demand a glass of champas! No such beer fridge at Genea in Newy, poor country cousins up here!

    Yep, they have a beer fridge in the porn room. Tough life being a bloke.

    Lots of exciting happenings in this thread! Yay!

    Congratulations @Fudge09 on your BFP, especially during such a significant week for you. I hope that is a positive sign of good things to come, with this little bubba and with you and DH sorting out your marriage and redefining how you move your relationship with the girls forward in a way that can work for all of you

    @tuxcat - you go girl! I agree with everything you say about the blokes getting it easy while we get the examinations and injections and indignity and hospital stays etc etc. WTF??? My DH is so shy that he would never do the porn room, beer or not! It took us 4 goes (over a few weeks) before we got a sperm sample for analysis And I just shake my head when I think of what we do and how lightly they get off and they still can't handle it! Good luck with the IUI and with the non-drunk sperm! DH's sperm are always drunk, he reckons they swim better that way

    @leyshoja good luck hon, I'd be enjoying half a glass of wine too if I were you after all you've been through. I don't think that is going to make one bit of difference, as everyone says the bub isn't latched on to your blood supply yet so no drunk embie in there Hope this is a healthy little sticky one!

    @Bongley great that you had a good conversation with your PD - how exciting that it looks like it might all move ahead very quickly now!

    Glad you're all good @BlondeinBrisvegas - it was one hell of a storm, holy fruck alright! I thought we got a lot of rain here, but you guys got four times as much as we did OMG! We're all good here, just had to have our sooky doggy inside all night, she doesn't like storms. She's a chihauhua stuck in a big 45kg dog's body and climbed onto our laps on the lounge last night and tried to curl up. Biggest. Sook. Ever

    Was still a BFN yesterday and AF is due from tomorrow onwards. I didn't bother testing today, I'm so over it and so sick of BFNs. After falling pregnant every 4-5 months to now be 7 months without another pregnancy, even with drugs and stim cycles and tons of supplements etc is playing havoc with my emotions. And being due this week as well just really stuffed me up. I just wish it wasn't so hard
