Cycle/Month: 14 (1st TTCAL)
Timing: O, O+1
Testing Plans: don't know
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: I had light spotting & cramping yesterday, and a slight temp drop this morning. I hate over-analyzing the 2ww.
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? That even with all I've been through, I'm very blessed.

Morning, ladies :)
Timing: O-3, O-1, O
Testing Plans: Holding out for as long as I can... (which experience tells me will be another couple of days)
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: This is my first full cycle using FF. While it's really interesting seeing everything charted, I think it might also be making me overanalyze more.
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I'm in the process of founding a nonprofit organization with a couple of other people, and I'm learning a lot about what it actually takes to get something like this going. It's work, but it's really great seeing things come together.
Timing: O-3, O-1, O, O+1
Testing Plans: waiting at least till July 4th, or AF
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: I feel nauseous this morning, but that really isn't a difference from normal life.
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I need to focus on people that make an effort in my life. I waste too much time and effort on people that I don't get any effort or time from.
MC #1 6/13, MC #2 8/13
DaisyCat11:GTKY: What is something you have learned lately about yourself, or otherwise? this is kinda lame, but I've learned so so much about my body since TTC
I was going to put that also! I wish I knew this much about my body years ago!
Timing: -3, -2, -1, O
Testing Plans: Trying to hold out until AF is due
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: Ruined todays temp by waking up every three hours last night. :-(
GTKY: I'll echo what DaisyCat11 said!
Timing: eod, and then some ;)
Testing Plans: not until I'm "late", will try to hold off
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: getting pregnant by "surprise" was much easier than this and we just started :)
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? coming to terms that although I'm not professionally successful as I would want to be or doing exactly what I would like to be doing (where I thought I would be after college at this point in my life). I have made the choice to have a job that allows be to be with my DD and future LOs A LOT.... which is much more important to me than making that dollar :)
Timing: O-2, O
Testing Plans: 4th of July JIC, then I'll wait another 3 days
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: Horrible headache today. I never get them except AF time. I only had two drinks last night. I hate getting older.
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I can cope with stress a lot better than I used to.
Good morning, ladies!
Timing: O-3, O-1, O+2 (most likely)
Testing Plans: I've been saying that I'd wait till July 3rd (12dpo), but I'm getting more and more tempted to cheat. Also, I'm scheduled to start a "cardio boot camp" class on Monday, and I might use it as an excuse to test early...and I'd use a BFP as an excuse not to torture myself in that class! Ha ha!
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: I've been noticing some twinges in my abdomen and they're messing with my mind. It's probably just gas. :-/
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I have a stroller obsession!
Timing: O-1 O O+1
Testing Plans: Waiting it out til I can't stand it anymore lol
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: Today is DHs first of ten days off! So excited to spend some time with him!
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I think I'd feel better if I got a job, got a few applications yesterday. I also don't handle stress well at all.
Timing: Good. O-3, O-1 and O+1. We tried to only do EOD sex this cycle.
Testing Plans: FF says July 7th, in about 8 days, I'm good with that.
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: For some reason I just don't feel anything either way about this cycle. I really don't think this is the 'one'. I don't even really feel that sad about that. I like that my cycle is becoming somewhat predictable and regular-ish. That's a big win in my book.
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? Well I've been in school the last six months so I could bore you about all the stuff I've learned about financial and cost accounting... But we've also been landscaping our yard for the past couple months and I have learned exactly how well my H and I work together. We're so on the same page when it comes to getting things done and I just love that.
Cycle/Month: 2/4 with active charting, 6 months off BC
Timing: O-2, O; I'm really trying to believe that this is "good" timing like FF says, but it seems pretty sparse to me.
Testing Plans: After my negative yesterday, I am definitely waiting until 18 DPO as FF is recommending.
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: Why does my body have to be so stupid?!?! I was feeling so happy with this cycle, because I actually Oed with a very clear temp shift, my cycle is in the semi-normal range for length, my LP has dramatically improved from the measly 6 days last cycle. So what the FLUCK is up with being 16 DPO and getting negatives?!?!
Also, I am trying to avoid googling "long LP" so I don't start freaking myself out too much, while simultaneously ignoring FF talking about my "possibly triphasic" chart at CD 41. Both of these things led me to drink an entire bottle of wine last night.
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? That "93.5% of positive pregnancy test are reported before 16 DPO" Thanks, FF. Good for flucking them. I'm either in the 7% or flucking broken.
Cycle/Month: 1/1 (this is our first time actually trying after my MC in January, even though we haven't really been avoiding since April, but I'm counting it as 1!)
CD/DPO: CD 23 of a 30 day cycle
Timing: EOD during FW
Testing Plans: probably on July 4th since I know I will be drinking that day.
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: This is my first time being in the 2WW. The first time I got pregnant, we weren't trying. I'd just come off birth control and had no idea what my cycles were like. I didn't test until about a week after my period was "due". This waiting game definitely messes with your mind!
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I just did a week long trip to the East Coast during which my hubs and I visited four different baseball stadiums. I learned a lot about the history of the teams and the stadiums, which was really fun!
Timing: o-2, o-4
Testing Plans: none since I think our timing kinda sucked. I don't even have any tests in the house and I was at the dollar store yesterday and didn't buy any!
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: none
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I'm really starting to understand my temps and charting, can't believe I didn't do this before. It's so nice to see what's actually goin on!
CD/DPO: CD 24 No idea about DPO
Testing Plans: We will be out of town when af should arrive so I won't be bringing tests.
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: I have no idea when I O'd/or if. I am on summer vacation so my sleep is all messed up. I usually o on day 20ish and I had a + opk on cd19 but I haven't had the tell tale temp shift. This might be because my sleep is so disrupted and I have been temping at random times or it might be I didn't o this month-frustrating!
GTKY: What is something you have learned lately (about yourself, or otherwise)? I realize I have no will-power. I am trying to loose a few pounds and I can't stay away from junk food.
Timing: -2, -1, O
Testing Plans: just trying to wait until the 4th or AF!
Thoughts/Rants/Chart Stalks: having mild cramps and indigestion...crossing fingers! Although at this point I would even be happy with just having a natural period (went almost 5 months without one). Don't get me wrong I am really hoping for a bfp!
My husband finally admitted he enjoys watching cartoons with me... Especially Despicable Me :)
