WTO Thursday

Re: WTO Thursday

  • @simcal18 I have a mabis and I do the same thing, the first temp was the temp I took that day and then it always shows 97.70 before flashing lo for look. It flashes really quickly!

  • @korycir - Agree with others that it may be an O dip.

    @businesswife - Thanks for the encouragement/support.  I'm only 5 feet tall, I have a desk job, and my metabolism sucks, so 1200ish calories is where I need to be if I want to lose 1.5-2 pounds a week, even though I'm pretty significantly overweight right now.  I will occasionally have 1300-1400 calorie days to shake things up a bit and keep my metabolism from getting too sluggish, and I get a no-holds-barred cheat meal about once every other week, but generally losing weight is really, really hard for me.  I've done it several times before (unfortunately), so I know what I need to do -- I'm just frustrated that I'm not where I want to be for TTC right now.

    @ashleyluxe - FX for darker wondfos!

    @bcooke314 - I have an iproven BBT.  I tested it out several times this morning and the only temp that was coming up was 97.70, regardless of what I knew the prior temp was, so I'm pretty confident that the recall last temp feature is just not working.

  • @simcal18 I have the same thermometer and mine does that too (but it's 36.5 (Celsius)). I am always too excited to know my temp though so look at it as soon as it's done and log it in FF. It's BS that the recall fxn doesn't work but I can't be bothered complaining/sending it back/ whatever. I hope you can see a temp shift now that you know!
  • @bcooke314 that is an awesome New Years resolution! I should suggest that to my husband because he gets so angry at ignorant stuff on the Internet haha

    GTKY: No resolutions.
  • @mokay19  It is has made me a much happier person lol. I also got the Chrome extension that let's you hide certain things on Facebook (I think it's called Facebook Purity or something) and used it to hide all those news articles on the side of the page because that's where I would get caught up reading comments and getting really mad.
  • @BusinessWife yeah... I realistically have a good 60 to go. But I am trying not to think about the actual number because it is daunting. Before my wedding we did a weight loss completion with my family that I ran. It was based on percentages lost and we all out money on it. I didn't end up winning but my dad got super competitive and ended up losing a much needed 50lbs. It was great to see that.

    I have tried the 21 day fix in the past and it showed some results but it just got overwhelming (I went nuts wth meal plans and spreadsheets). I need to go back to something simple like my fitness pal just to track calories and keep in check.
  • @businesswife thanks for your kind words and suggestions. Unfortunately, we've talked it to death. He's come up with several varying reasons--the pressure of TTC, he's getting older, we had sex too often during FW (which, btw, was 5 times at EOD) and there's nothing left, etc. I even asked if it would help if I didn't tell him when fertile time was, but he knows we are TTC so he said anytime I initiate sex he'll know. Also, we normally have sex like once every month or every other month...so having it 5 times in a month IS a lot. I don't think there is an easy solution. And normally I like it that way (but not when trying to make a baby! :()
  • Month/Cycle:  13/2 TTCAL2

    CD: 1 - Booooo

    WAYDTGKU:  PNV, CM, waiting for a call back from RE with plan for this month, but I am expecting it to be a second round of clomid 100mg.

    R/R/CS:  RANT: MY digestive system is definitely heavily influenced by hormones.  My tummy isn't happy with AFs arrival today.  I feel gross.   RAVES: I have been sure I wasn't going to get a BFP since 10dpo, so I am not feeling upset things didn't work out last cycle which is good.  Happy to be getting a fresh start on a new cycle today.    DH has been so supportive and great the last month trying to make things less clinical despite all the trips to the RE, watching timing etc.  I told him he didn't need to go with me to appointments where there was really nothing going on except a check and discussing plans for next visit, but he was there with me every time.  We missed the timing to determine if a IUI was in order though.  Somehow he's managed to shirk having to do this thing in a cup twice now.  I think that might be hard for him & cause some serious performance anxiety!

    GTKY:  I try not to don't do the whole resolution thing.  I feel like it is just asking to set myself up to disappoint & doesn't really motivate me.

  • @Xstatic3333 I have been doing it at home, following videos online. I would NEVER be able to do commit to doing something everyday outside of the my house. It's bad enough that I have to show up to work 5 days out of the week.

    That's awesome! I've always had a tough time motivating myself to work out at home. Part of me finds spending a little money (nothing crazy-my studio is a good deal) helps me commit.

    Rant - hubby had performance anxiety again last night...
    Rave/CS:
    I had a low temp today, so dotted CHs were taken away which I was hoping for because I was pretty sure I didn't O on CD8. So hopefully O is on its way!


    GTKY: Borrowed from yesterday's TWW, did you make any resolutions for this year? If so, how are you doing with them? If not, are there any resolutions you would like to make post-new year?
    I don't really buy into resolutions, so none. I do however need to lose some weight and work on stress management.

  • @korycir  Yes, essentially.  For me, it drops steadily over several days during AF, then may rise again right after, often with a noticeable upward "spike".  Then it starts to come down again, but often in a downward-trending zig-zag as O approaches, and then the very lowest dip is generally quite low the day of/before O which makes for a steep spike UP signifying the O happened.  They say three consecutive temps higher than the previous six temps to confirm O.  But again, that pattern may not be 100% true for me from one cycle to the next, (I'm not sure I always get that dramatic rise after AF, but I did this month), and of course, my patterns may not be the same as your body's.  You will start to get a better feel for what your body naturally does the more cycles you chart.  As for the possibility of them running low b/c you're mouth breathing, I don't temp vaginally so I wouldn't know anything about that.  But as long as you can see the temp shift leading up to and after O, I think that's what matters.

    @atcwag I had a crazy upward spike after AF on CD7.  Looks like maybe you had similar?  I never noticed that was a thing before, but I think I randomly read it over the past couple days and wondered if I had ever noticed.

    WAYDTGKU: Charting, OPKs, getting healthy, weaning DS

    R/R/CS:  Weaning is continuing to go surprisingly smoothly.  I'm honestly not too hopeful for this cycle since it looks like it will be another long one, but I'm hoping DS will be completely weaned by the time my next one starts and that will mean I'll really start getting more regular.

    GTKY: Borrowed from yesterday's TWW, did you make any resolutions for this year? If so, how are you doing with them? If not, are there any resolutions you would like to make post-new year?
    Not really, I guess I made a commitment to get healthier as far as eating better, working out, and giving myself more "me" time for my emotional health.  I've been doing pretty well sticking to that.

  • @korycir the time difference can easily have an effect on your temp.  If I temp an hour or more later than usual, then my temp is significantly higher.  I would guess that the temp fluctuation wouldn't look so dramatic if the earlier temps were taken at your usual time.  If your sleep is erratic, then it would make sense for temps to be erratic.  Keep temping this cycle and track CM, and see if you can see a temp shift.  I know it's hard not to analyze every little thing on your chart, but it really is best to see the whole big picture before jumping to conclusions.  My charts can be out of whack in the beginning too, but once I ovulate then it's clear where my pre-O temps range and where the post-O temps range.  Hope that helps!

    @LizaKate1213  I would record the positive regardless of when you get it for that day.  The reason why it's recommended to test at different times during the day is so that you don't miss your surge if you are ovulating at a different time of the day.  It takes a while for the LH to build and get to your urine (from my understanding), so usually if your surge actually happens in the morning, it will show up positive in your afternoon test.  (someone go ahead and correct me if I am explaining this wrong!)  If your surge is short and you only test in the morning, then you might miss it if you don't test in the afternoon.  FWIW, I've gotten positive OPKs with FMU.

  • @xstatic3333 that's a good idea. I already can tell we started too early this month. I know O can change any time, but based on this month, I feel a little safer starting later next month in hopes we won't have to BD as much.
  • *Non-TTC question*

    I'm asking here because LuLaRoe has been mentioned a few times...anyone want to join an online event? Person who invites the most people who join gets some free leggings...so I could use those. Haha. Let me know If anyone is interested.

  • @atcwag I'm having a party in Feb myself or I would!
  • @JamieK1882 - you could still "attend" and not purchase anything. Haha, it's not my party so I don't care if people actually buy anything. I'm just in it for the free leggings for whomever invites the most people.

  • @MrsDho11 - Sorry. Wasn't trying to sell anything. I actually don't care if anyone buys anything. Not my party. Not peddling any wares. Just trying to win some free leggings with the help of people who like LuLaRoe since it's been mentioned on TTGP multiple times. I often "join" parties I'm invited to and just hide posts if I'm not interested. I don't mind helping people out, but I know others feel differently and that's ok too!

    @atcwag - I'm not mad, I just *REALLY* don't want this to become a thing.  A large part of the reason I've scaled back on social media (and FB) in particular is because everyone is inviting me to their parties all the time, and it's gotten so old.  I'd really prefer not to have that start happening here because TB is so helpful for me in other ways!

    Edit to just add that it felt like something that I wanted to address early.  And I could be alone in this, in which case go ahead, and I'll just have to deal or decide what to do about it.  :)

  • @MrsDho11 It's true.  Snuggling and canoodling may not be quite enough to make a baby... but I couldn't quite bring myself to post pics of animals DTD. lol
  • I'm super late and I want to respond to so many, but mobile is being a pain. Hopefully I can get on my comp later. Month/Cycle: 4/5 (9/11) CD: 11 WAYDTGKU: all the stuff R/R/CS: it's my birthday. I've gotten a lot of texts and calls tha take me so happy. GTKY: My resolution was to try something new once a week. It doesn't have to be anything big, just nothing I've ever done. I'm enjoying it and it's keeping me from saying all stuff and then never actually following through.
  • Thank you so much, @MrsDho11 & @simcal18! :smiley:  A little darker today but not as dark as I want.  Patience is a virtue I apparently do not possess!


  • @JamieK1882 I know how you feel DH had issues before we met (long story involving a bucks party and a lamb ring) he was never supposed to be able to have kids, blew that idea away with DS, but it means that he often can't "get it up" or doesn't finish, and he doesn't really care it's just "it'll happen when it happens" and I'm all just like "you've got a 24hr window for this, your usual idea of sex once a month isn't going to cut it" so that's been frustrating, I know how you feel completely.

    R/R/CS: Finally getting my hair cut and grey hairs covered up, it was getting bad.  I also needed to recently declined a trip to see my cousin's new baby, I would love to meet her i just can't handle it right now.

    Mine is to stop eating so much candy and chocolate.  I did break down once for my mom's chocolate chip brownies but otherwise doing ok.  I also would like to start working out more but i have not been too successful in that area.  I started running in the mornings but by the second week I was utterly exhausted.  Hopefully I can get more motivated.

    I was doing great with being better about working out but I've slipped the last 10 days or so. Between fighting what feels like a sinus infection and screwing up my foot again, I've been taking it a little easier. Back to the orthopedic tomorrow and hoping I don't end up with my third stress fracture in the same spot :(

    CD: ??? not sure right now

    WAYDTGKU: going to be temping and using OPKs again, the cycle I got my + I was not so good at temping, but could see a pattern and confirm the O that the OPKs indicated. Going to try not to obsess over TTC as much as I did before, but many of you know how hard that is to actually do. 

    R/R/CS: Question... so... does CD1 start when my my MC bleeding started or when my true period starts (whenever that may be.)? With my doctor's blessing, I want to jump right back on the horse, so to speak. 

    Rant: this really sucks... 
    Rave: my family and friends who know about our loss have been super supportive and I am so glad to have them in my life. 

    GTKY: Borrowed from yesterday's TWW, did you make any resolutions for this year? If so, how are you doing with them? If not, are there any resolutions you would like to make post-new year?

    The only real resolution I made was to try to keep my house cleaner and more organized. I have done and OK job so far, but there is room for improvement.
