WTO Monday


Re: WTO Monday

  • I'm also back from a week break! Sorry I went MIA - I just found I didn't have too much to say in those early days of this cycle (which seems to happy to me every time I start a new cycle) and didn't want to be a Debbie downer!

    Month/Cycle: 8/9

    CD: 10

    WAYDTGKU: stuff and things - admittedly been a little less committed this month, but trying to get back on the bandwagon.

    R/R/CS: Rave: I'm off from work today - yay! - and am enjoying a lazy morning after a friend's wedding weekend in Sonoma. Also, I drank all the wine. Yum. Rant: Learned that DH's college ex (who we are still friends with and who was at the wedding this weekend) is KU. I hope my lukewarm reaction wasn't too obvious. I mean, I'm happy for her, of course, but this one just stung big time since (a) she's my DH's ex (obvi), (b) she wasn't even sure she wanted children (not that it matters, of course, just makes it harder since I've known I wanted children my whole life), and (c) we have always been aligned on our timing - dating/married virtually at the same time - and now I'm going to be lapped. WORST. Trying to stay positive...but the fb pregnancy announcement of another friend was NOT the right hook that I needed this morning. Uggghhhhh.

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie? Usually a tank and loose pajama pants. I own a little lingerie, but can't remember the last time I used it.

    CD:  25, nothing in sight and hopefully that keeps up until my H gets home this weekend!!

    WAYDTGKU:  cm, bbt, OPKs, vitamins/coq10, MLD massage & acupuncture next week, sex this weekend

    R/R/CS:  I fell in love with Seattle this weekend, first after discovering the 99 through downtown, then we played and ate around Fremont, and explored around Ballard and Capitol Hill.  Anyway, new city crush happening now.

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie?  sports bra or tank top and narrow ankle sweat pants/long underwear so my pant legs don't end up around my knees.  Never ever ankle socks.  I have a few lacey underwear that are in my semi-regular rotation but otherwise not really at all.  Whenever we are at VS we always comment how good the lingerie will look in a pile on the floor.

    WAYDTGKU: stuff... staying OPKs today 

    R/R/CS: Not much. But I've been trying to be better about what I eat and my workouts. I'm not doing what I should. I'm going to try and jump into the weekly check in because I need to be accountable to someone... I guess I just don't mind disappointing myself. 

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie?
    I sleep naked. I can do a big shirt and panties on vacation, so I'm hopeful I can get used to it after kids, but it's odd. I have a few pieces of lingerie,but they don't come out very often. A lot of effort for a tiny bit of time...

    R/R/CS: Does anyone else get hormone related migraines?? I used to get them before switching to Yaz/Gianvi HBC and now that I'm no longer on it I'm getting migraines every week or two. Just asked by Dr to refill my Imitrex prescription but I'm curious if anyone has successfully managed theirs in a more natural way.

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie? I prefer to sleep in pajama pants and a t-shirt or a tank top and shorts if it's hot out. I own one piece of lingerie and I only have it because it was a gift at my bridal shower, totally don't have the body or confidence to wear it.
  • @mokay19 I know what you mean about the house noises. Sometimes my DH goes on week long business trips and whenever he leaves I swear I hear all these noises I've never heard before. I get  so paranoid something will happen. He thinks im crazy lol.

    R/R/CS: I've been trying to use less lubricant (anything made naturally isn't quite enough) because it's bad for sperm and all that, and I'm seriously getting sore LOL.  I bought some TTC friendly lube but my H doesn't want to use it because he wants my uterus to be an obstacle course so only the best get through :|   

    Also we were helping friends move this weekend and someone asked if I should be lifting such heavy things since I'm pregnant.  I was like, I am?  And he said oh, I don't know why I thought you were.  So now I have that in my head.

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie?  Usually a shirt and boy short panties (sometimes no panties, I thinks it's good to "air out" every so often haha).  Pj bottoms always ride up and twist around my thighs.  I don't wear lingerie.  My regular bras and panties are cute enough.

    Charting, PNV, EPO, CoQ10, B6, RRL tea, OPKs, as much filthy hotel sex as I can squeeze out of OH

    Oh boy.  Well, first I managed to kill my BBT.  I guess one disadvantage to vaginal temping is that the thing might get wet and corrode out the battery.  Lovely.  So I have one day of regular thermometer temps, but at least I was able to buy another of the same BBT and keep on moving.  Second, OH works away during the week, and we were only able to FWP (not that he realizes this because I don't tell him when FW is) once.  I do really love to do things for him so that he's not just a baby making machine, but I probably should've said no to the BJ yesterday and insisted on more P in my V.  On the plus side, it's probably early in my FW, and I'm heading out to visit him tomorrow and Wednesday night, and I will definitely be saying no to BJs!!  Also, I have an acupuncture appointment today.  It's to try to manage my migraines, since I went off of the drug that was helping them, and not for fertility, but I'm going to see if they can sneak anything fertility related in.  My insurance only covers treatment for pain, so at some point I will probably have to bite the bullet and pay out of pocket for fertility acupuncture.  @LittleChick2, I hear good things about it, so I'm trying it, and will be updating once I see how it is.  That's the only thing I'm trying now besides trying to avoid my triggers of too much sugar, dehydration, and sleep deprivation.

    I'm on Team Nekkid!  At least I am when OH is home.  He's the one who converted me, but I haven't been comfortable doing it on my own...when he's gone or if we have other people around, I sleep in one of his big t-shirts and nothing else.  I agree with @RatParade that it's good to air things out!  ETA, I only wear lingerie when I drag OH somewhere like a wedding.  I'll wear pretties underneath as a promise for a later reward.  Otherwise, he just prefers nekkid.

    WAYDTGKU: Entry level stuff. 

    R/R/CS: Not much. Just have a dentist appointment this afternoon with a new dentist. I had the same one for basically all of my life and close to his whole career until he retired. I'm not thrilled. I don't have a specific dentist anxiety, I just hate new doctors and I do feel like there's a lot of room for sales-based BS in the field. And it also always reminds me, even though I do have insurance, that somehow we consider dental, vision, and hearing to be luxuries as most of them come separate from 'health' insurance. Your dental health can seriously affect your overall health and without vision care, I wouldn't be able to drive. How is that something that's separate and outside of health insurance when it's one of my favorite parts of my body? If someone asked me if I would rather break a finger and let it heal wonky as a trade for contacts and glasses, I'd definitely go for the wonky finger.

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie?
    I pretty much only wear lingerie as an activity item. For actual sleeping, it depends on the season and if H is home. Summer is shorts and a tank top, winter might be, too, depending, and then if H is gone in the winter and I'm trying to go cheap on the heat, I might do baselayer pants, more pants, and a shirt + a sweatshirt. H hates when the house is freezing so if he's home, we heat like normal people. Sometimes it would be nice to sleep in less in the summer but I'm always afraid of a house fire so I want to be prepared to run outside. It's a weird thing that's not based in statistical data.

    As much as I love you guys, I've never been so excited to leave! I didn't imagine when this cycle started I would spend 30 days in WTO! Thank you all so much for all of your support during what was a ridiculous and stressful cycle for me both TTC wise and personally some days. I hope you all join me in TWW ASAP!

    Last but not least, I'm sorry I don't have time to respond to everyone in my last day here, but hugs to anyone who needs them!

    GTKY (stolen from TWW): What is your preferred sleepwear of choice? Do you ever wear lingerie?
    I wear a t-shirt and pajama pants every night. I have ten million pairs of pajama pants actually. It's a problem. I do wear lingerie from time to time, but only with a purpose!

  • @SandwichLover Thanks, I'm going to try. Not agreat start today though, I admit.
    And about the allergies, do you use honey for anything? I read an article about how using local honey can decrease allergies because your body develops a resistance to the local flora. But since most of our honey is brought in from far away we lose this benefit. I know: sounds a bit hippy dippy. But I can tell a difference. And it's normally cheaper and tastes better. 

    @kellybean1988 Thanks. I need to just do it. Ugh. I jumped on the fitness thread... You can do it too! We can make each other!
