What are you doing this month? OPKs, temping to confirm O, trying out POM, green tea, sex sex sex
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: someone tell me about EPO! I'm willing to start trying new things at this point...
GTKY: I say (blushes) "okey dokey" ALL the time...I need to stop it, I just don't know how to. I also use "just saying" a lot and I know that annoys a lot of people.
Happy Thursday ladies!
Cycle/Month: 14 (1st TTCAL)
What are you doing this month? OPKs, temping
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: glad AF started at a normal time!
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. Hm, can't think of one right now. Certain phrases / words bother me when they are over used.

My Chart***My TTC blog~~ALL WELCOME~~
What are you doing this month? temping, checking CM, opks, and trying to lose weight
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Nope.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. can't think of anything right now.
What are you doing this month? PNV, OPKs, drinking more water.
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: I'll see if my temp goes up or down tomorrow, but I probably O'd yesterday. If I wasn't temping, I wouldn't believe it. No ovulation twinges or pain, barely 2 days of EWCM. I never got a positive OPK (really, I've not gotten a positive OPK since I started using them 2 or 3 months ago.) I'm just not expecting much out of this cycle. Way to think positively, right?
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying? : Just sayin', Meh.
What are you doing this month? OPKs and CM
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Just started OPKs this week, and is it sad that I enjoy having the excuse just to POAS everyday even if its not a HPT.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying.
"Bad company corrupts good character". My mom said it to me all the time, but now I know it's true and say it too.
Yay! Almost the weekend already!
What are you doing this month? Temping, OPKs, preseed, sex
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Not yet!
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I hate when people say "It is what it is" when it really only is what it is because they're too stubborn to do anything about it.
What are you doing this month? Temping, charting, CBFM
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: The pain I was having on my right side has gone down but that area feels sore. Not sure how to read that, but I'll keep an eye on it.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying: Since I work in IT, I hate it when people say, "I'm not tech savvy." I'm not asking you to figure out how to put a computer together... I'm just asking you to learn how to save a document. *end mini rant*
What are you doing this month? All the usual but we are trying to have less sex this time.
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts:My chart looks horrible. I've been sick over the last few days and haven't slept very well and have been sleeping with my mouth open so my temps are all over the place.
I hate "it is what it is". It drives me crazy.
What are you doing this month? temping, OPKs, PNVs
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: I had such a bad night of sleep last night, between the rain/wind/storms and the weather radio going off. I'm so tired I just hope I make it through the day.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I know there are some that I can't stand but I can't think of any of them right now.
Cycle/Month: 8/7 (#1 TTA)
What are you doing this month? charting, temping, opks, trying to narrow O so DH can determine if he really wants to TTA or just NTNP this month (it's likely this weekend, but he's pretty wishy-washy on things so who knows what's happening)
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: I haven't been participating because I'm in denial that we're TTA for the next few cycles. Then, of course, I tell DH that he'll have to determine a plan for this weekend since we only see each other on the weekends and he says "well it doesn't really matter does it since we have been trying since December and it hasn't worked so we won't get pregnant anyways." Thank goodness it was said via text because I don't think I could have controlled my hand to not slap his face at that point. Rationally I know TTC takes a healthy couple up to a year, but the negativity just shook me.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I love when my 6 year old nephew uses "that's ridic-LEE-ous" (ridiculous) in proper manner and context. I hate when people say "everything happens for a reason" - it's not comforting and, depending on context, mildly offensive.
What are you doing this month? Nothing other than HIO. We leave today for a week long trip in the middle of nowhere and I didn't want to be bothered with temping/OPKs. I bought ClearBlue digis for next cycle.
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: No chart to stalk! Hoping my cycle regulates a little.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. Can't think of one right now
What are you doing this month: Bumpin uglies, preseed, charting, lots of water
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Blech.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying: YOLO. If I hear this one again, I just might lose it completely.
What are you doing this month? Temping, checking CM. Trying to time sex at the right times.
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: This week is going by so long, I think it's because we are actually TTC. I usually don't ovulate until CD 17-19 so I'm stressing myself out with timing sex.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I hate "just sayin" as well. Just sayin . But I also hate the phrase "no one said life was fair" because people tend to say it at the worst times. It's like "Obviously I'm aware of that right now."
So, this is my first month really temping, (been of BCP for 2 months) and I am already insane. We are not planning on trying til next cycle (so this month we're using temping as we TTA) but as a science teacher I am fascinated! and it's driving me nuts b/c I haven't O'd yet. But it's very cool to learn from all of you, so thank you, and GL!!!

Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: So, this is my first month really temping, (been of BCP for 2 months, dabbled in temping last month) and I am already insane. We are not planning on trying til next cycle (so this month we're using temping as we TTA) but as a science teacher I am fascinated! and it's driving me nuts b/c I haven't O'd yet. But it's very cool to learn from all of you, so thank you, and GL!!! I will try not to ask any dumb questions like, "do you think i'm pregnant?"
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I hate: "How come?" There is a word for this, it is WHY? so , WHY are you using more words than necessary?!?!
What are you doing this month? nothing this week.... we're going out of town for a week and I'm thinking about not temping until around cd10. pre-seed, nookie eod starting around cd10.

What are you doing this month? Starting OPKs. They should arrive in the mail just in time.
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Not yet
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I couldn't think of anything but reading other responses I have to agree with YOLO. I'm not a fan.
What are you doing this month? I got results back from the RE for my bloodwork and DH's SA. Not good news, but haven't told DH yet since we are traveling separately. So this cycle is a timing bust and the next two are probably out based on results. I'm not having a good mental cycle. .
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Nope
kare_bear_12:Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Just started OPKs this week, and is it sad that I enjoy having the excuse just to POAS everyday even if its not a HPT.

Cycle/Month: 6/10 (was bfing)
What are you doing this month? EOD sex, temping, opks, praying
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: My temp dropped huge this morning (my normal is 36 - 36.4 and it went to 35.6) so I thought maybe I might O but my opks have all been negative so far. SIGH. We'll just keep doing what we're doing
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. Disliked: I hate when people say sick.. like "that's sick". No, it could be awesome, great or whatever else but sick mean ill! Liked: "Veni, Vidi, Scripsi." (I came, I saw, I wrote.) I'm going to get a tattoo of it eventually. P.S. I'm an author
What are you doing this month? Opk and temping
Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: Nothing much today, just blah.
GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying. I hate when people misuse the word "Literally". Other than that there isn't really a "saying" I can think of.
