Happy Valentine's Day, ladies!
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite?
Month/Cycle: 9/12 (5 an-O) I somehow forgot about the month rollover on Sunday...oops!
Timing: -4, -2, -1, O
R/R: I'll spare you all one last day of my current SS drama lol
I will however rant about DH. Yesterday since I was home before him, I was watching to see when he would leave work (thank you find my iPhone). About 10 minutes late he still hadn't left so I called him and he was having a quick drink with a coworker at the grave of said coworker's father (they work in a cemetery) in honor of the father's birthday. I don't mind that he stays but it would've been nice if he would let me know without me having to check up on him. A little later he calls to let me know that he's running through the car wash and then running an errand (making it sound like it'll be quick and also being very mysterious about it). He didn't get home until about 6 pm, he's normally home around 4:45. I was so annoyed with him because he never seems to let me know when something like that comes up! Grrrrrr!
CS/Q: Feel free to look if you like but no direct questions
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite? I have never listened to a podcast before. I've obviously heard of them but just never cared enough to actually check one out

Timing: doesn't matter
Testing: another negative today. AF is due Friday so I'll try to stop torturing myself
I love This American Life!
@lulu1180 girl, I hear your rant loud and clear! It is incredibly irritating when they do that! I'm sending all of my positive vibes to you for tomorrow!!!!
@hayIsbayIs sorry about the bfn. I hope I get your tag right because I never seem to!
CD/DPO: 4dpo FF finally agrees with me and gave me solidly CH today
Timing: -3, -1
R/R: I stopped at my favorite coffee shop for a treat this morning. I must admit it felt a bit strange to order a "heartbreak" coffee on Valentine's Day! But, it's soooooo good! Raspberry, hazelnut, and dark chocolate latte. Oh, I also made some Oreo truffle hearts fir my colleagues!
Ok, I admit I asked this question because I was curious what podcasts people listen to... I haven't started any but I'm looking for ideas!
CD/DPO: 21ish (I know I'm close if not the same as @lulu1180)
Testing: The day AF is due 2/23
R/R: I had thee most realistic dream last night of peeing on a stick and getting a positive. My heart is broken this morning. My doctors office is closed today so the appointment I have been waiting for is a no go. I was really looking forward to talking to doctor and getting my lady parts checked. Boo. We have SO much snow and it is still snowing. Everything has been shut down here for two days now. I will post a pic later when DF starts to plow it. It's crazy. AND the SS is real last night/today !! I got in the shower last night and whenever the water hit my left nipple - holy cow. Now the sensitive nipple, vivid dream, abdominal discomfort, 5 hour nap yesterday, laying here tootin up a storm ....... BSC
CS/Q: I am concerned about my dull cramping. This cycle and last cycle I have really noticed my cramps after ovulation. I know for some cramping during a me after ovulation is normal. Maybe I just haven't noticed before because I wasn't as intune with my bod. Anyone else for ovulation cramps ?
Nope, I have never listened to one.
@lulu1180 DF is the worst one for that. It drives me crazy. He never tells me when he is going to be late. Just shows up with his story. I get after him all the time and tell him when he is late I worry or sometimes I have plans and he ruins them by being late. Anyways, he has gotten better. It will come with time. I can't wait for you to POS tomorrow !!!!! Everything X !!!
@haylsbayls Sorry for the BFN. Do something special for yourself. Hugs.
@bertiemeetsgertie That coffee sounds amazing. Can you PM me one ??? Yummmmaay !
Me 27 DF 44TTC post VR Sept 21/16SA 6 weeks post op 50.7 mil count 40% motility
R/R: Sometimes I wonder if I am a really insufferable patient. I have an RE appointment today, and I assumed that his practice wouldn't know very much about my newly discovered genetic condition so I printed out some info about it and about the genetic test I want them to get me into at a hospital in the city. I figured it would be easier to just say, "Here's the thing I learned and what I want to do. Here's the phone number at Mount Sinai for you to call." But I hope they don't hate me
CS/Q: Ugh I temped this morning and didn't even look at the temp... I'll have to ask DH to look at it for me.
GTKY: I listen to two podcasts and I highly recommend them both! The first is How Did This Get Made, which is a hilarious podcast about bad movies. Each week, the core team of comedians/comedy actors plus a guest talk about a new terrible movie. If you watched the TV show The League, it's Andre and Rafi from that show. I also listen to Bitch Sesh, which is a hilarious podcast about Real Housewives. Really funny though it got me watching more Housewives which can't be positive for my productivity.
Timing: -3, IUI, +1
Testing: still testing out trigger. super duper squinter again today, but curiously my OPK is finally negative. science is interesting. I might stop testing soon and just wait till next week or continue to torture myself, i'm not sure which is worse.
R/R: yoga again this morning! I have been so tired (thanks estrogen and progesterone) I passed out on the couch at 8. DH has been a trooper picking up my slack, he even is going home at lunch time to clean the bathroom! That is true love!
CS/Q: nope, still super ugly.
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite? I don't parse, but DH downloads some for me for car trips. I love all things NPR. Car talk, Wait wait dont tell me, ask me another etc. Oh and @haylsbayls has an excellent choice of this american life. If anyone is interested you can listen to all of these on your computer by going to their web pages and you don't have to down load anything.
@lulu1180 you have such willpower, and I would be right there with you SS (hell I am and my chart is not nearly that pretty!!) if I had that chart. Fx so hard for you
@haylsbayls sorry for the BFN
@bertiemeetsgertie that drink sounds amazing!
@flashley the SS is strong with many of us this cycle. Fx for you. sorry your appointment was canceled due to weather.
@adirat its good to be informed!
Timing: -4, -1
R/R: -The BSC is strong in this one- excited for the valentine's day tradition in my house, breakfast and mimosas for dinner!
Timing:-3, -1, 0
Testing: I don't really know. Probably Friday so I can drink.
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite? I don't.
Month/Cycle: 5/5 3TTCAL
CD/DPO: CD 20 / 9DPO
Timing: -5, -2, -1
Testing: not sure
Rave: I feel better today than yesterday. Trying to be a little more positive overall. Also, looking forward to go to dinner with friends tonight. Odd day to go out with another couple, but neither of us really celebrate Valentine's Day, so it works, lol.
Rant: I woke up and stayed awake earlier than I wanted to get up...had the option of coming in later today. Boo body! But, at least I slept through the night and was able to temp. Also, my blood sugars are all over the dang place for the past few days, which has me worried. I keep dropping to the low 60's out of nowhere, even though I just ate an hour or two before. Ugh.
CS/Q: Got no question. But my chart has my mind pre-occupied with SSing...but I have no symptoms. So...that's disappointing.
No, not really. I tried to listen to that one pod cast, I think it was called Serial. About a murder or something of a teenage girl a long time ago. It was good, but I didn't finish it.
Timing: -4, -3, -2, 0
Testing: prob Saturday
R/R: I'm just a girl brushing her teeth... hoping to see her gums bleed....
Alas, no such luck. All of my dumb BSC SS is not worth justifying by talking about it.
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite? In the beginning of the "paranormal revolution" I used to listen to Paranormal Podcast and Anything Ghost. Yes, cheesy I know, but they helped pass the time on long drives. Recently I really enjoyed the first season of Serial, but I really didn't like the 2nd season. I am, however, really excited for the 3rd season! I also listen to a ton of audio books.
Timing: -5, -2, -1, 0, +1
Testing: if AF is late
R/R: I made heart shaped pancakes for DD this morning and she loved them! DH supposedly is getting me a surprise V-Day gift so yay!
CS/Q: the ladies in the CS thread cleared it up for me yesterday!
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite? Nope, never listened to one before.
Month/Cycle: 4/3 after break
Testing: my trigger was out today so just waiting it out now
R/R: nothing just waiting on 7 so I can go home. Today has been crazy busy
GTKY: Do you listen to podcasts? If so, what is your favorite? Nope
LuND said:R/R: I'm just a girl brushing her teeth... hoping to see her gums bleed....
@haylsbayls I would have been livid in that situation! And I’m pretty sure he didn’t even pick up on
the sarcastic tone when I said “Thanks for calling me!”
@BertieMeetsGertie Yay for solid CHs! Hope your colleagues enjoyed the Oreo
truffles! My employer has their
Valentine’s Day social today with cheesecake, yum!
@FLAshley The BFP dreams are the worst! Hope this one actually means something!
@adirat I would think they would rather have a well-informed
patient that is interested in their care than someone who prefers to remain
ignorant of what is going on with their body.
I hope the appointment goes well!
@wabash15 It’s been REALLY hard not to POAS but I know I
wouldn’t want to see that stark white BFN just in case it was too early.
@WillRunForWine21 I love breakfast for dinner!
@Dilynne @LuND GL with your pee pact ladies!
@dragonfly87 I’m pretty sure he was getting me something
because he was being very cryptic about said errands but I was just grumpy
because he didn’t call in the first place.
@shortstack930 Yay for surprise gifts! You’ll have to let us know what it was!
@LuND Thanks to find my iPhone, I knew where he was and he
left work before he had called and told me he was at the car wash and then
@Redpuma119 I’m glad I was able to help you from POAS
possibly too early. Here’s the link to
the test results by DPO if you’re interested.
@kaitlink33 I hope things settle down a little for you at
Testing: bfn this am, big fat surprise lol. I'll test Fri or SAT (10-12dpo)
R/R: Hs bday and v day. Were doing homemade sushi and steak. Yum!
Never have I ever. Not opposed just haven't.
Timing: -4, -2, -1, 0, 1
R/R: I have a cold and can't stop blowing my nose and sneezing. BUT I finally got some OPK's and realized that I've been off on my timing by about 3 days, which hopefully makes a difference this time around!
Love podcasts. Someone recommended Bitch Sesh - thank you! I dowloaded it right after I read that, but then I lost whoever said it so sorry! But thanks!
Serial is amazing - only season 1 though. Dr Laura - I am very against a lot of her feelings on women etc, but I love hearing the calls. Straight up with Stassi is okay sometimes. I think that's about it for now. I have more, but I haven't been listening to them lately. I've been spending an obscene amount of time listening to CNN, NPR and MSNBC lately. Like, I cannot stop, no matter what I do.
