    Which was another issue...us not having any kind of a social life with other people or doing many things just for us like going away for a weekend (because we never had any $ due to IVF plus no one to look after our pets)..no "date nights" etc and I also felt very unsupported here with DD as he saw it as him working outside of the home and me in it so my responsibility (really old fashioned views that surprised me as I knew he was traditional..so am I but not that frucking traditional once push came to shove!!).

    So many times over the last few years I've bought up how unhappy etc I've felt and why and nothing would ever change to the point I just had enough.

    ETA- He's a workaholic too which is why he got so depressed when he couldn't for 4 months and why he can't work to capacity now either plus the pain he's in all day every day he's on a sh!tload of painkillers...Endone, Targin, Lyrica for the nerve pain (a disc in his spine is bulging and compressing his spinal nerve permanently and when it flares up he gets really severe nerve pain in his knee all the way down to his ankle on his left leg I think?? which is on top of the usual severe back pain from the disc).
    Ah that's tough. I can imagine being in chronic pain totally bringing out the worst in a person but it doesn't mean you have to lump it if it's ruining your life. I just think relationships can be hard work but they shouldn't be all the time. Sorry not much advice BIB it sounds like you are doing all the right things

    My cousin was married to a man who was diagnosed with MS. He went into a deep depression and it completely changed him emotionally for the worse. She divorced him eventually and remarried but are still in amicable contact due to their son. It's a very sad situation but I didn't blame her for a second.

    Yep @BlondeinBrisvegas holding your breath is allowed!
    @Lolly99 That's definitely not allowed!!
    I haven't been crossing my legs for too long because I don't want to get cramps and do anything to jeopardize implantation. I also want to be able to try and distinguish between Metformin bowel cramps, implantation stitch and needing to wee!
    I've been sipping water, but not drinking litres of it, which maybe I should be doing for the health of the embryos. All my wee is orange, I think due to the Vit B6 tablets.
    Any sane woman would have binned my 11am test and I'm sure a GP would have shook their head and said 'nope, sorry'. It's only a truly desperate woman who would have held onto it!!
    Also, this new box of FRERs might just have a deeper indent line pressed into them.
    Uhm @midnite01 I just weed, sorry. Next report will be around 4pm.

    @Tahli...Yes..it's the Vit B6 making your wee orange.

    Oh @BlondeinBrisvegas you do make me laugh out loud!!
    I mention the new box of FRERs because I cracked open a new box lastnight. At 8pm I got 5% of a grey 'shadowy line' (for want of a better word), 8am today (when my urine sucks) was still about 5% and 11am it's about 10%. It's absolutely and utterly certainly not a straight forward grey line that always comes for me pre pink line. That's why I suggested that maybe this new box has a deeper indent line pressed into it.
    @Bongley It seems that I'm peeing every 3 hours. So yep, like you, I'm testing far more frequently that I'd like to admit to!

    @Tahli you don't think a camera will pick it up?

    Not a chance in h~ll @Bongley!!! Only an insane woman who has 'line eye' could pick it up IRL, let alone after BH dilutes the line!!!! If you lived closer I could drop around and you could give me the benefit of your experience. If there was something to photograph it would be posted on here. Promise.
