Evening all..

Well the puss & piper show was in full swing this morning & the comfy waiting room was taken over for gossip session.  All we needed was tea and cake and we could have been there all morning.... 

Hi Piper - well, they've told me to carry on on the same dose and go in Friday for blood and dildo cam..  How about you buddy?  Quite looking forward to Friday so I can see what's actually going on down there...  (god I hope something's going on!!)  Just thinking about dildo cam,  if DH's aren't coming with us on Friday, maybe we could request a full size picture of George Clooney on the ceiling in there to bring a smile to our faces....    It was me sneaking up the inside lane at the traffic lights on the main road by the way - I tried to wave,  but ended up flinging my arms around looking like a looney! 

Hi Rach  - good to hear it went well and Murray's now in recovery. Been thinking of you both today and willing it to go well for him.  You've done bloomin well to soldier on today whilst it was all happening - I'd have been no use to anyone - well done you! I'm sure you'll feel so much better when you've been to the hospital and checked him out for yourself..

Sunflower - nice to hear from you!  Aha - proof that Puss's are master's of disguise - we can fool vets for years!!  Honestly, you'd think the absence of a pair of furry balls would have given it away to the trained eye wouldn't you!

Juliet - hey somersaults too now - he'll be a gymnast at this rate!  What room are you going to paint?

Clurr - come on you're not telling me you've never been a little deviant??  Mmm - methinks the lady doth protest too much!      Know what you mean about the barth thing with Piper though - I reckon she sticks her little finger out when drinking tea too!

Hi Pasha - I've been here a while now and I still can't keep up with all the rabbitting here!    What I say is just rabbit back and get your own back  ;D

Deb Bee - hi there how's it going?

Got to go stick needles in myself now!

Hi everyone......

Rach..... hope Murray's o.k.... and you're o.k..... you must be really worried and stressed at the  moment.... hopefully catch up with you later tonight xxxx

Clure.... how did you know about the rampant rabbit? I've traded him in for a younger and fitter model !!!!!
Sunflower..... how's it going?  How do you feel?  Taking it easy I hope?
Baileypipin,Piper,Puss,Deb bee and all the rest of you....sorry if missed you out (please don't burst a bubble) hope you're all well!

Come to have chat with you all cause feeling stressed out!  Kids have been a nightmare all day.....get home and hubby's attacking the house - just can't get any piece and quiet :mad:

Well as you know....I had my first date with dildo cam...... it was fine apart from needing 2 nurses (Rachel and Sue) to try and locate my left ovary...... neither could find it!!!  I know it's there because they checked everything out when I had my Laproscopy last year!!!  Must be in hiding !!!!  Can't blame it.... it knows it's going to be in for a rough time!! They reassured me that my ovary will probably 'drop down' with the drugs-hope they're right.  Rachel was lovely - really took on board my anxieties,worries and fears about the injections/needles and egg collection.  ( We have been advised by Dr Shaker to have ICSI even though I have un explained infertility & there appears to be nothing wrong with hubby's swimmers). She has also put a note on my records to have Doctor carry out ET instead of allowing every Tom,Dick and Harry to have a prod and poke around.... and left feeling like a 'welly top'.  I start injections on the 20th of October.  Had no idea hubby was going to have a go at 'stabbing' me.... I'm not joking.... if I could have remembered my way out of there.... I would have done a runner!!! (I do suffer from short memory span).
So... if any of you can alleviate any anxieties.... it would be much appreciated!!Feel stressed and excited all at the same time. It all sounds so confusing!!
As well as all this going on... we recently moved house (across the road) which needs loads of work doing to it!  It's like something from the 70's...... burn baby burn....disco inferno..... all that's missing is the glitter ball in the corner!!!  Could put that on my Xmas wish list..... not!

Not a lot more to tell you really......I'm animal mad.... got 4 cats-one with 3 legs... he's called Tripod..... love him to bits,he's my baby.  I'm 31(and a twin) hubby's 42 he's a Joiner by trade, live in Bakewell,been married 3 years and we're well suited cause we're both barkin mad..... and I talk too much!!!

Right .... better log off and leave some room for you lot!!!  Hope it has taken you ages to read this..... now you know how I feel!!!

See you later
lots of love Bakewell Tart a.k.a Pasha   xxxxxx
God I talk too much!!! Now Puss has just squeezed in a post .... hi Puss... happy jabbin.... I'm wincing just thinking about it!!

Helloooo,

Thanks for the welcome back.  It was nt the thought of you lot turning up in Blackpool....honest  ::).  I just could nt keep up with you all ^idiot^

Clure, I thought your real name was Ruby, God, I'm gonna get confused.

Rach, is Murray your DH?  I'm desperately trying to catch up.  I hope everything is OK, as I'm sure it will be.

BaileyPippin and Piper, thanks for welcome back.  Hope I dont bring this thread down to new depths and get chucked off this site  :-[

Pasha, mmm...dildo cam...weird how you get used to it.  You get so used to being pocked about... I get offended if a doc does nt ask me to take me knickers off now.

Just a quick update: I'm currently waiting for an appointment with an endo specialist to get an opinion as to whether my endo should be treated prior to our 4th fresh ivf.  I'm a bit scared about my age and that I may need to lose an ovary which Dr Low told me is a big no no for ivf as neither function that well  :'(.  The endo specialist is brill though, so, hopefully he can help me  ;).  I'm expecting an appointment in the next few weeks.

A big hello to all you other ladies.  I will try to keep up.

Now what are those sex tips?  ::)  I'm an old bird, but right naive.

Becca

Hi

Rach, glad to hear  Murray is doing ok.  Sounds like you could do with a kip.

Baileypippin, thanks for your message.  I had a dopplor scan earlier this yr in Nottingham.  They confirmed both ovaries are stuck with adhesions and I have an endo cyst on each.  My uterus is ok though ^reiki^ but I have poor blood flow to it.  The prob with my endo, is getting it treated without removing either ovary which is why I've insisted my GP refer me to a proper endo specialist.

Love

Becca

Juliet, hope you have contacted the midwife by now and got the reassurance you need.  I'm sure everthing is fine but dont take any chances hun  ;)

I have been recommended a proper endo spec and I am seeing him privately.

I'm thinking about you.  You take care sweetie.

Love

hope you girls are all OK

hi
phew juliet ,glad your ok.... nothing surprises me of that dump.you know its a good idea to take your mum with you,you also have to be just as snotty and rude as they are to get anything done. you know communication skills for general nurses are non existant, tho youd hope the ones that work in obstetrics would be better.
so no nice ,kind ,be a brave soldier juliet...scream rant and exude attitude.
think clure....and it will all come easy.!!

so basicly your no more reassured than you were this morning.cant believe they didnt scan you , or check you out.lazy gits.  ^bigbad^(grrrrr) get rach to do one of her famous complaints that will sort em. gives you great hope for having the baby there.actually i spent a day on labour suite as a student..and it was really good. i also i did a fortnight on one of the maternity wards and that was great too. so its better than a/e.

i hope youve managed to have a sleep...keep up with the paracetomol and if your no bettter go back, and keep on top of the midwife too!

were all with you girl 100%.
lots of love clairexxx

ps ..rach..hope murrays better...poor lads allowed to whinge he just had an op..cant you tell your a nurse!!!! hope you get him home today.love to you both x

Juliet, so glad your home safe and sound! although as clure says  - they didn't do a great deal did they? Hope you're feeling better and that the pains gone? I know this shouldn't have to happen but is there anyone or anywhere you could go to privately, perhaps that way you could get peace of mind. They were telling me at care the other day of a dr from the nhs place in sheffield setting up in private practice... if you're interested i can ask when i'm there tomorrow morning!
Really hope you've got some sleep and are feeling better, though if not go back and take your mum and stand your ground until they check you over properly or even better take our Clure and Rach with you!!!!
Rach, hope you've brought the whinger home today and that everyhting's gone well.
love to everyone
Piper xx

hi piper think i do need to take clure and rach with me.....safety in numbers. yes that would be good if you could see who the private doctor is and find out for me is that who  nurse rachel  sees...ive seen dr anumba privatley at claremont and there is anotehr hospital in sheffield with another consultant there thats who does the 3 d scans ...i had my nuchal with anumba and the scan machines are better...i also looked on the site and all the girls go to birmningham cos the scan is half the price there £150 for the 4d...for future reference gilrs you go to  .www.mums.me.uk they do all sorts there thought i might go and get the doppler scan which  checks your placenta and uterus..my midwife thinks they should of checked that today...anyway whats £150 in the scale of things...only takes me an hour and half to get to birmingham but would be great..if you could ask them  cos sheffield so much closer...
hope all is going ok for you ..how are you feeling on the menopur...looking forward to seeing dr zhao on monday and ill see you too..hopefully feeling much better by then  hope your bloods ok tomorrow ..are you having a scan ass well both you and puss?

clure im glad you said you had work experince there cos it does put you off a bit...i know in the past dri not had good things happen in the baby unit but things over the past couple years have good results..you just feel really vulnerable cos you trust them with your life and your baby and you wantt them to help you...it makes you realise the nurses at care how nice they are...how diferent they are...plus i dont think the anxcioius icsi on my notes will help..the dog bite the bleed the fibroids the ivf...bet they think im dot cotton ...if i saw that happening to my friend or family and i was with them i would of had a word with them but when its happening to you and you dont feel right...i was just mush.....even if it is a common complaint and they get lots women in which the midwife said they do between 20 and 24 weeks...anyway gonna do as piper says just go privatley its not worth the upset...and even if it is nothing then money well spent..last shift tonight hun...

hey on a good note guess what came to day...yes orvilles record ...made me smile...better not be scratched..

rach ...are you nurse then to murray..hope he not got a little bell at the side of the bed...how is he feeling his he thinking its a success..
thanks girls...glad you all here your my true gurardian angels  .........its great to talk...do you think id be a good advert for bt....
love baileypippin xxx

hi girls
juliet i understand everything your saying about trusting the medics, and it shouldnt matter whether they get 2 concerned mums to be a day or 22.so what? they are there to provide a service ,this is what they are paid for.it makes me livid. you know i will come with you at anytime,day or nite.im not particularly big on patience tho, so you can be sure you would get seen if only to get rid of us.
i think its a flamin disgrace thatyour having to think about paying private to get results......grrrrrrrr. but i absolutely understand why. i agree that your consultant didnt do you any favours at all by puttin that commment on your notes.frankly id ask for it to be removed.he should record facts,not opinion.

yeah it does really make you appreciate the "care" we get at care. id love to work there. imagine how much job satisfaction you get from a job like that,knowing you helped people like us achieve their dream. beats keeping "offenders " at bay from the public!

hope you get aunty roses record player on and give orville a whirl!

good luck piper and puss for tommorow..hope your progressin well x

rach hope u got murray settled.

hi to pasha ,sunflower deb bee ,and becca. gotta get ready for work now.hope i havent missed anyone.
bye
love clairex
