    R/R: Had a really busy day yesterday at work and also had to prep for today's festivities. We are having a potluck and secret cupid exchange at work today which should be fun. Otherwise just waiting for my temp spike! Last month O was CD16 so I'm hoping things are somewhat consistent this month.

    GTKY: What are your Valentines plans?   The fiance and I went to Outback Steakhouse on Friday for our Valentine's dinner because he works tonight. For what time we do have tonight, we'll probably just chill and watch something on netflix. He also grumbled this morning that he forgot to buy roses while he was at work yesterday, but I didn't mind.

  • @jess0211 hope the surgery goes well and sorry you're having a tough day. Also I'd probably stop the OPKs, it would either upset me or make me too hopeful, especially if there's nothing you can do about it at this point. Good luck!! 
    @Pinky917 I like your straight and to the point plans for tonight 
    @DuchessOfCambridge we're having a bake sale at work today too! Omg those bars sound delicious!! 
  • @leekat14 Happy birthday!

    @KariAnn323 Mmm... the cupcakes still sound yummy!

    @cdnrunning Ugh - sorry AF is being so nasty :(

    @SoraLk The soup competition is a great idea - so jealous!

    @jess0211 Aww - I can totally get why that would get you down. FX you are KTFU and not benched - it's up to you about the OPKs. I'd keep doing them, personally, so that I would know when O was - both for testing and for AF. Also - GL to your DH with his surgery!

    @jess0211 ; sorry for the punch to the gut. Seeing an announcement right now would probably break me. Also GL to your H!

  • Gotta P&G today because we just found out that we are getting my stepson early this week. He is sick and can't go to daycare, which means I'll probably be sick in 2-4 days. He's quite the sharer, that one.

    R/R: Rant - I'm defintel my going to have to break my one soda per day rule to get through work the rest of the week. Rave - I get to drink more soda this week. :-P 

    CS/Q: not yet, going to start temping again tomorrow since AF seems to be wrapping up her visit. 

    GTKY: What are your Valentines plans? Sleep as much as possible and then go to work tonight!

    R/R: I am so mad at my body. Typically my AF is heavy and painful. This time it has been super light. I did JUST go off my IUD so I am chalking it up to that but my NP said AF should come on time and like normal. Maybe it is just too close? I don't know but this is the one time in my life I wanted a real period. Either it's still coming or she is psyching me out. Sorry rant over.

    CS/Q: nope

    GTKY: What are your Valentines plans? We really don't have any. We just started back on our diet and exercise routine so just another day for us.

    @JulesDP once again, gif PERFECTION. Also, everyone seems to be having sleep issues lately (me included). The airy fairy in me wonders if it had/has to do with the recent full moon.

  • @ktcakes87 I LOVE Melting Pot.  It is amazing!!  If you like wine the specials they run where you get the four course with a bottle are usually a good deal.  When the food comes out don't be disappointed.   I guaranty you will leave stuffed.

    @leekat14 Happy Birthday!

  • @jess0211 I ended up with some cramps throughout the night/early this morning so I think I may have O'd. DH is gone for work for the night so we'll BD on Thursday-Sunday to round off FW just in case. Being at cycle 6 I'm now getting impatient and all the what if questions and questioning our timing. Also, I hate the feeling when it seems like everyone else has kids. I had a FB pregnancy announcement pop up the other day and made me feel shitty. Actually sometimes we just stop when it feels like that or don't even DTD because I'm not really into it. If that's my pre O then I've probably been missing O this whole time. No biggie, just 6 cycles. 

    @safire3 DH is military so I can't exactly go nag his chain of command over a party. The person I work with to plan these things is higher ranking and not my husband so I can't nag him to see if he does what he says he'll do. Of course they have their job to do plus they have to oversee their Family Readiness Group on the side. Normally it would be his spouses that does what I do but he's not married. I sent him a message though that I want to improve our communication for events like that but said it in a way that didn't necessarily blame anyone specific for it. 

    @morado23 sharing is caring!!

    @MTgirlCOworld When I had my IUD out I think the first AF was lighter. I did have AF while I had my IUD in. It's gotten heavier but still a regular flow. I think the post IUD AF was because I didn't go through a full cycle so I didn't have a full cycle of uterine lining to shed. 

    @ktcakes87 I'm not sure if they're all the same or if we're from the same area (is it a chain?) but I loved the Melting Pot!

    Oh I guess one of DH's superiors heard that I was doing the Family Group and literally asked DH "But does she actually do anything?". I didn't know he had said that and during the party (which had the room packed) I was talking to this guy about how I have plans for a baseball game trip in the spring and a pancake breakfast. Do I do anything??

    @slaven I feel you on the pregnancy announcements. Derek Jeter's wife got KU on the first try and they announced today. Made me so jealous.
    @leekat14 Happy birthday!
    @jess0211 Glad it went well!

    WAYDTGKU: nothing this month but still temping & taking PNVs

    R/R: rant: one of my kids had a huge fit during our party today.  I had to call admin and 6 people came in my room & I had to take the other kids out. His parents had to come get him and carry him out kicking and screaming. Not a good start to the day. Rave: I came home to 2 dozen red roses on the counter & a dozen white roses on my dresser. I think that's as close to an apology as I'm going to get

    CS/Q:*tw*. How long after a CP or mc did you bleed for?  It's been 23 days now. The last 7 have been spotting but yesterday it was heavier spotting and today it's red.  And I'm slightly crampy.  I'm over this!  H has an SA on Friday & I was hoping we could DTD to help clear the pipes but he's gonna have to take care of that on his own. I have to go in to the dr tomorrow for another hcg test & the said I have to get an rh shot & they want to test my antibodies.  I guess I'll ask about the bleeding then*

    GTKY: What are your Valentines plans?  Just dinner out. 
  • @purplg8r *TW* I bled for 7 days with 2 of spotting with my MC at 8 weeks.*/TW* 23 days seems like a TON! What did the docs say?
