    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.

    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.

  • Cycle/Month: 8/7 (#1 TTA)

    CD: 8

    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? 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 Wink. 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."

    GTKY: what is your most liked/disliked saying.  I was just told by DH that I am not allowed to say "hot mess" anymore. I completely agree now that I'm realizing how often I say it.....oops
     
    ETA: I have 2 coworkers who constantly say "know what I mean" in the middle of EACH AND EVERY SENTENCE (at least that's what it feels like). It's super annoying to have to validate all of their thoughts.

    Chart Stalks/Questions/Thoughts: it's our first month trying and I'm excited but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. It could take one month and it could take over a year. I just want to try to enjoy the process as much as possible!
