    hi everyone this is such a great thread....

    I only have one funny story..although it was pretty stressful at the time.

    I was due for my trigger shot when I was in sydney, I had got very organised and had put them in my drug lunchbox out of the box, anyway 1130pm and I could not find the trigger shot, tipped everything out, but no it was not there.....so I had a slight panic attack..mainly involving the words duck repeated over and over, So I remembered that my FS kept spare drugs at their nearby hospital, Into the car I jumped... GPS not working of course, strange roads and dark sigh to drive to the hospital. On the way there is a huge police RBT on the road...all I could think of was being stopped and me saying to the policeman...can you speed it up a bit I have to go and get some drugs to inject...hahaha.
    Anyway made it to the hospital, got the drugs and mixed in shot up standing at the nurses station while having a conversation with the nurse in about 30sec...how blaise do we all get...we are all junkies by the end of this process.
    needless to say the trigger was only 40mins late.... a miracle in itself.
    But wait theres more..... when I got home I checked the drug box again... and there was the trigger obvious as anything...ahhh....must have had a blind man look.....!!!!!
    If I could have had a whiskey I would have...lol..lol...

    keep up the funny stories
    you have all put a smile on my face today....

    I had actually forgotten this moment until I started reading all your hilarious posts!

    I was having an internal u/s to count how many nice follicles were brewing away. There were quite a few and I lost count because the FS was going along in quite a hurry. This gentleman was an older chap, at least 65, with hearing aids. At the end of the scan I asked him, "How many eggs are there?" He paused for a moment, gave me the strangest look and said, "It should be fine to have sex until just before EPU", then walked out. I looked in confusion to the FN who was in there with me as well, and she just burst out laughing. Apparently the old FS had thought I'd asked something about when I could have sex! Total embarrassment! I tried to avoid looking at that doc the next time I saw him! What a hussy he must have thought I was!!

    Default IVF barbies

    I've posted this on other threads , but I thought this was a really great place to share it with everyone, as it makes me smile whenever I read it......

    When Mattel were looking to design their new Barbie, IVF Barbie, they soon realized that there was not one universal Barbie that would accurately portray the spirit of IVF Barbie. So they decided they would come out with a few variations thereof.

    Newbie Barbie:
    Newbie Barbie, also known as BabyDust Barbie is a bright, perky, Barbie, filled with optimism and confidence that IVF Will Work. She is thinner and usually younger than the other IVF Barbies. Her accessories include rose-tinted spectacles, a positive bank balance, healthy insurance coverage and a million questions. Newbie Barbie has lots of other Newbie Barbie friends and they congratulate each other on a job well done. This Barbie only says pleasant, optimistic things and believes that Attitude is Everything. Their motto is Think Positive!!

    Pregnant Newbie Barbie:
    Pregnant Newbie Barbie is the big sister to Newbie Barbie. She is still slim, now with a cute belly. She is proof that IVF Does Work, usually the first time. She also comes with rose-tinted spectacles, a positive bank balance (only very slightly depleted) and total confidence that All Will Be OK. She glows when pregnant and liberally uses baby dust when playing with her sisters, the Newbie Barbies. She comes with Very Cute maternity clothes, a double stroller, and a fully decorated nursery even though she is only just a few weeks pregnant. Her motto is ‘See! Thinking Positive Works!!’. Newbie Barbie and Pregnant Newbie Barbies are great playmates and you can collect them as a set.

    Joiner Barbie:
    Joiner Barbie is cousin to Newbie Barbie and Pregnant Newbie Barbie. Joiner Barbie comes with a group of friends just like her, and this group calls themselves by the name of a furry animal or has reference to a season. Think Spring Blossoms or Bubbly Bunnies. Accessories include a chart or table of some sorts, lots of smiley faces, baby dust (a glitter-like tub of ground up positive attitude that apparently has the power of hocus pocus to make one pg), declarations of eternal friendship and love and lots of ((((hugs)))).

    Veteran Barbie:
    Veteran Barbies are not at all related to the Barbies above. Veteran Barbies are the Anti-Barbie. They are a whole lot plumper than the Newbie Barbies, less perky (in boobs and attitude), have grayer hair, a largely negative and over-drawn bank balance, plenty of bruises and marks and a slightly cynical attitude. They are dressed in comfy track pants with elasticated waistbands. Their accessories include a wealth of knowledge of reproductive procedures and protocol, the ability to practically do their own cycle, a snarky attitude, little tolerance for stupidity, a well defined sense of humor, the ability to laugh at themselves, a fondness for wine/beer/crack and an aversion to pineapple, baby dust and Newbie Barbies. This aversion in its more severe form can be allergic and acerbic. Veteran Barbies tend to swear quite a bit (especially when playing in the Barbie House with Newbie Barbies and Pregnant Newbie Barbies) and parental guidance is advised.

    Pregnant Veteran Barbie:
    Very similar to Veteran Barbie, only now with an added dose of neuroses and paranoia. Continuously and obsessively over-analyses every twinge, convinced that the end is nigh. Only buys stroller and decorates nursery when in eighth month. Accessories include disbelief and a sense of not quite belonging, and 10 home pregnancy tests just in case the first one was faulty or the clinic made a mistake with her beta. Pregnant Veteran Barbies have been known to pee on the sticks up until the day before giving birth just to see the two lines.

    Celebrity IVF Barbie:
    Celeb Barbie comes in two versions: Denial Celeb Barbie and Out of the Closet IVF Barbie. Denial Celeb Barbie does not play with the other Barbies and pretends not to be an IVF Barbie at all. She drops the IVF part of her name and thinks ‘Donor Eggs’ is a swear word. She pretends that her twins at age 49 are Natural and she did it all On Her Own. She also claims her boobs are her own and that she has never had a face lift, hence her credibility is not at an all time high. Out of the Closet IVF Barbie is the preferred Barbie. We like her.

    IVF Ken:
    Ken is a w@nker. Sorry to sound so harsh, but besides being a w@nker there is very little that Ken does in IVF land. Sometimes Ken administers shots, hands out tissues and occasionally accompanies the Barbies to their Dr’s visits (normally during the first few cycles only), but mostly he is just a w@nker. If you choose an IVF Ken, then try and get one that also cooks or does DIY. Otherwise just sit him down in front of your Barbie TV and let him know when it is time for him to do his, um, contribution. Mostly the Barbies love their Kens, unless Ken is being particularly insensitive or obnoxious, then he becomes a w@nker in all senses of the word. Some IVF Barbies don’t even have a Ken and they do just fine. If you do find a good Ken, hang on to him, don’t swap him with your other friends.

    FS Ken:
    FS Ken is the all knowing, all seeing Ken. He might be a w@nker, or not, but here we are talking about being a w@nker in the figurative sense. He could also be very nice. He may call you by your first name but you may only call him Doctor. His accessories are many and wonderful. He comes with a zooty new car (normally very expensive), a smart house, a very healthy bank balance and a holiday home or two. FS Ken knows every thing and is considered second only to God. Some FS Kens are kind, some are not. They are all rich. Ken’s office is filled with fun toys like ultra sound machines, dildo like probes, waiting rooms filled with the different types of Barbies (some annoyingly come with miniature Barbies or Kens in tow), medicines, procedures rooms etc. FS Ken also comes with a free Nurse (Ratchet) Barbie, who will not return your calls, will hand out annoying platitudes and generally add to your frustration levels. When purchasing FS Ken you will get Ultrasound Ken and BloodDrawer Ken. Unfortunately they come as a package deal and you are not able to get FS Ken without them, they aren’t as much fun. However, you will need a FS Ken if you are going to play the IVF Barbie game.

    Mattel foresee a big demand for these Barbies and say that for extra fun and lively interaction, collect the full set of IVF Barbies, put them in the Barbie house together and see the sparks fly.

    Thanks Micca - CLASSIC!!!!

    They need to make a new category for the Ken dolls.

    While I have advanced to Veteran IVF Barbie and the cynicism that goes with it, my DH remains the ever optomistic "Newbie Ken". Every twinge or symptom or even bad blood test result may mean that I am pregnant! I sigh and gently advise him, "No darling, I don't think so." Ha ha. I love him!

    Although i am pregnant, i still managed to have a funny IVF moment going for a scan.

    My boy at 13 weeks (didnt know he was a boy then.....) was measuring about 10 days aahead. The sonographer looked at me and said she was going to adjust my edd. I said thats fine, but, you wont need to....i know when i concieved. She informed me in a very patronising way that women dont know when they ovulate and considering i was so young, i definatly wouldnt understand the whole ovulation process....... Her face was priceless when i told her that i was sure that i ovulated and concieved on the 18th of december, and if she had any questions about the joining of my egg and my husbands sperm to contact Dr Lok at Sydney IVF! LOL!!!



    My boys Due date is still the 10th of september!!! LOL!!!

    Baldies, I love that Did you change your name from waitingformybaldies? If so, we were pregnant at the same time last year with sad outcoems for both of is and I am SO happy you got your sticky one

    Love the idea to sticky this thread.

    Well I reckon this might have been done before, but my moment comes from me spending tooooo much time on this forum - I had my first FS appointment last week, and he was explaining that he wanted to give me an ultrasound & asked if I knew about the procedure - I just blurted out, 'yeah sure, you go in with the dildo cam'
    arrrgh so embarrassing DH cracked up & my FS said 'I've never heard that before, you made my week'

    lol At least it broke the ice
