  • Month/Cycle:  7/6, 4/4 AL

    CD: 21

    WAYDTGKU: bbt, pnv, opk, cm, hio, Pom juice

    R/R: I think today or tomorrow will be O day! Also,my MIL offered to babysit again this afternoon.  Our day date last weekend got messed up because of a big fire (my DH is a volunteer firefighter) so FX we get to hang out today.

    CS/Q: I have an appointment on Monday for a pap.  Probably a dumb question, but it doesn't matter if they use the lube stuff on the speculum if I've already O'd right?

    GTKY: "ok thank you, love you!" In response to my DH saying to go to sleep and he'd wake me when he got home to HIO.

  • Month/Cycle: 3/3

    CD: 8

    WAYDTGKU: PNVs, temping, CM, HIO

    R/R: A few years ago I started wearing a sleep mask to help me sleep during the day and now I'm addicted to it. I woke up at 0330 to pee and when I came back to bed I couldn't find it. (It usually comes off while I sleep.) I used my phone as a flashlight, but didn't have any luck finding it and I didn't want to wake DH by turning on a light. I'm definitely going to need a nap today!

    CS/Q: I find it interesting how much higher my BBT is temping vaginally over temping orally. 

    GTKY: "Was it a mess when you got to work tonight?" I'm lame and texted my co-worker because I knew he would be up and at work tonight.

    R/R: today is my nieces first birthday party. I love seeing them so I'm excited but there will be babies and pregnant women everywhere. I also had to go to babies r us to buy 3 shower gifts last night. DH came with me cause he knows it's hard for me. I love walking around that store. I can't wait for when it's us doing our registry!

    CS/Q: none 

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent?

    WAYDTGKU: waiting on AF to leave

    R/R: see above plus another really heavy period. I'm making an appointment next week to speak to OB about it and get back on progesterone. Rave: I just decided I'm going to buy some new shoes today

    CS/Q: just three dots

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent?
    "on my way home" - my hours vary at work and I typically leave after 530--6pm so I text my H to give him a heads up or to see if I need to pick something up on my way home

  • @tigercakes - hope you get your day date redo! I doubt there's any issue with the lube. I bet it's the same stuff they use with an internal ultrasound 
    @morado23 I was curious about vaginal temping but I'm pretty sure I would fall back asleep while temping and not hear the beep :smile:
    @beachbunnyxo123 - have fun at your niece's bday party and hopefully you won't find it too difficult. Hugs!

    WAYDTGKU: waiting for more lab results, next f/u appointment etc., still taking all the vitamins, tracking cm on paper, but not temping...

    R/R: Rant: Yesterday we got a random group-text invite over to DH's Aunt's next weekend, and now I'm afraid his cousin's wife may have another bfp to announce.  FML.  Not sure if I have a good enough poker face to handle that, if so.  Or it might be nothing.  But I'm kind of mad at myself/IF for even having that fear cross my mind.  Rave?  MOAR FLUFF MAIL OTW!!! :D

    CS/Q: n/a

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent? AW pic if my latest CD organization/ storage idea to my bff.  You have no idea how much I wish she were planning to CD so we could fangirl together, but alas.

  • @TigerCakes. If youre fairly confident you've Od, the lube shouldn't matter. ;)

    @beachbunnyxo123. GL with your HSG!  When is that scheduled?   So nice YH came with you to the store for support, too. ❤❤❤

    @cdnrunning. Off CD3?  Yuck.  (((Hugs))) hope your doctor has some ideas that make it not quite so rough.

    @morado23. I feel your pain.  Is it naptime yet?

  • @cdnrunning glad you're following up with your OB. And have fun shoe shopping today treat yourself!!! 

    @BusinessWife hey girl glad to see you back in the daily threads!!! <3 I can't imagine how hard that would be if that's the case, alcohol in a discreet flask just in case  ;) my hsg is scheduled for Tuesday. I start antibiotics tomorrow he wants me to take for 5 days.

  • @Camomile. Thanks!  Omg your gtky gave me such a giggle. Holy cluster!!! Lol

    @beachbunnyxo123. Ah!  GL Tuesday!  Will be thinking if you.  Unfortunately Im really just kind of popping in since it's always a little slower on the weekends - I can actually keep up for a little while!  I do have a tonne of work waoting for me in the office, tho, so I can't procrastinate too long.  Mostly till we get gking with some kind of treatment here tho, it's just too hard to do the dailies, no point. :/  but this way, popping in, I still get to know some of the new faces!!! :D

  • @cdnrunning Thanks! That's good you're following up with the OB.  What kind of shoes are you getting?
    @BusinessWife Thank you! I second the idea to bring a flask just in case.
    @Camomile Thanks! Yes, right now he's a fire fighter in addition to his regular job but he hopes to go to the fire academy this fall so he can get a paid position.  The way it works is he has a scanner type device which the calls come through.  If he's able to he's supposed to go.  So if he's working then he doesn't go, but basically any other time he will respond. And I love your GTKY! That's too funny!

    CS/Q: nope

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent?
    Charlotte says "I don't see my dad anywhere. Where daddy went?"
    Sent to DH because he left before DD1 woke up this morning. He is a SAHD and always acts like they don't even notice when he's gone, which is clearly not true.

    @georgiagirl3050 Sorry for CD 1 :( Moping is totally called for today.

  • @TigerCakes Yay for some one on one time with DH!
    @morado23 How is temping vaginally going for you? Are your charts more stable so far? I'm considering switching next cycle. 
    @beachbunnyxo123 Good luck with the party today!
    @cdnrunning Sorry about AF!
    @BusinessWife Good luck! That sounds really rough. 
    @georgiagirl3050 Sorry about CD 1. Drinking all the wine seems totally appropriate!

    WAYDTGKU: PNVs, BBT, OPKs, CM, Vitex

    R/R: Rave: Yay for the weekend! A friend has tickets to a hockey game tonight, so I'm excited about that! Rant: I know for a fact that my body attempted to O (+OPK and lots of EWCM), but instead of seeing the temp spike I expected this morning, but temperature plummeted by an entire degree. I'm really hoping that the drop was becasue of mouth breathing caused by this cold I have. We'll see what happens tomorrow, I guess. I'm definitely considering vaginal temping next cycle.

    WAYDTGKU: benched

    R/R: rant: *TW* I'm hurting not excruciating but constant.  Like a side stitch.  And it was hurting on the plane whenever I bent over to get something out of my bag.  I hate living in fear like this.  *end TW*. Rave: we made it to Shanghai!! We're staying at the Toy Story Hotel & it's sooo cute!!  Tomorrow we're going to sleep in & then go to Disneytown (their version of Downtown Disney/Disney Springs. )

    CS/Q:

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent? **TW** "I might leave them a message and ask them to leave a detailed message". My bff had asked if I'm going to call my dr on Monday and I had said that since we're 12 hours ahead and they never answer the phone, they'd be calling back when I'm sleeping. **end TW**

  • @TigerCakes If you are certain that you have O'd, then it should be fine. If you are at all uncertain, you can bring some PreSeed with you and ask them to use that instead 

    @morado23 Ugh - it's the worst when something messes up your sleep routine :( Hopefully you get a nice nap today!

    @beachbunnyxo123 Awww, sorry you have to deal with all of that - it's so much harder when it's someone you can't distance yourself from. It was sweet that your H went shopping with you 

    @cdnrunning Sorry AF is being so nasty :( But new shoes are exciting! Are they a splurge or shoes you need?

    @BusinessWife Is there any way you can gracefully decline? Even if that ends up not being the reason, it doesn't seem worth the stress

    @Camomile That is a much better surprise then thinking it's the weekend only to remember it's a work day :) Hopefully you can grab a nap today!

    @georgiagirl3050 Sorry for CD1 - even if it is on cycle 2, it's still rough

    Month/Cycle: 6/5

    CD: 7

    WAYDTGKU: feels like everything

    R/R: It's the weekend, and we have so much to do. I really wanted a quiet couple of days, but doesn't look like that is going to happen

    CS/Q: nothing to see  yet

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent? "Leaving now" - I was late leaving work yesterday so was letting DH know I was on my way... He was making dinner and had promised to have wine waiting :)

  • @purplg8r Glad you arrived! Sorry that you're still in constant pain though - hope it doesn't affect the trip too much

    @Cricket648 Jumping into the temping convo - I switched from orally to vaginally a few months ago and it made a huge difference. I could still see the shifts and that when I temped orally, but once I switched my charts were far less rocky and way easier to read

  • @Sailing_Mama. Well I haven't rsvpd yet bc I wasn't sure if we would be around.  I suppose I could always say we weren't, even if we were, but really the thought of skipping it intentionally just makes me even more mad.  Like what else is IF going to take from me, ya know?  First our chances at just conceiving normally, sharing with DHs cousin the experience of us being ku together, or having kids close in age, ...and now even my willingness to participate in family things like a normal human being, too.  Ughh.  IF sux. :/  but ya, we'll see what happens...

    @purplg8r ah!  What a fun trip!  Hang in there and fx your pain doesn't get in the way of your enjoyment. ❤  what an adventure!

    @BusinessWife - it's been awful since CD 2. No worries, wine and shoes help ease the pain :)
    @Camomile - mine never used to be that long but last month was at least 6 days followed by a couple of random days of spotting. Ugh. Who needs that crap??
    @TigerCakes @Sailing_Mama @purplg8r I buy most on my shoes at DSW because it's much cheaper than say, Nordstoms - although I do love me some Nordstrom shoes :) I need to pick up a couple of pairs of heels for work but if I come across something nice, like a new sandal for the summer, then obviously I have to buy them!
    @emcake - sorry for the stressful week, that can be so emotionally draining
    @purplg8r - have SOOO much fun on your trip, it really sounds like the trip of a lifetime!

  • @KatieEl. Omg so fun!  Those are just my aios so far, nb on the left, os on the right. But I have two more os on the way, as well as my last 6 prefolds!  (That feels so awesome to have complete!)  Mostly I plan to do prefolds + covers with fitteds + wool overnight.

    Did we talk about this before?  What kind do you use?  Since I was focusing on prefolds, my approach with the os aios has been mostly to take advantage of the promos with purchase, at least until LO is here and we can try out what works for everyone irl, before spending too much $$$ on those.  I'd hate to invest in a whole OS stash of a system I didn't actually LOVE, kwim?  So of those eight in the pic, I only actually bought two!  (Imagine bamboo pockets, retired colours for about $10 each)  One sweetpea I have coming I'm paying full price for, but it's coming with a free promo too, do that's like half-off, right?

    @BusinessWife I don't think we have, but I love CD!  We did fitteds and covers for newborn stage, and mostly pockets now (though I have a few prefolds and AIOs too).  IF I had to do it all over again, I'd probably only do prefolds and/or the BumGenus Freetime.  And I'm all about that free fluff! I think I got over 50% of my pocket OS pocket stash free from timing the sales right when I was stocking up on the newborn diapers.

    @kvacmak Haha I know it's an intense list, but it's what I did with my older sons, so I'm doing it again.  FertilAid: fertility boost+prenatal; OvaBoost: egg health; FertileCM: improved CM; Dessicated Liver is just dried liver in capsule form (I don't like organ meats), but it's really good for B vitamins; Collagen for the protein/gelatin; Maca: helps regulate fertility hormones (esp. in conjunction with vitex, which is in the FertilAid); Green Tea to improve quality of CM; Pom Juice to help thicken the endometrial lining for better implantation; RRL tea for preparing uterus for pregnancy.  All of these have been okayed for me by my Dr./Midwife.  I'm not advocating these for everyone/anyone, talk to your medical providers etc. etc.

Oh cool!  What kind of fitted did you use?  I was wondering about the bumgenius stuff.  4.0 and 5.0 are pockets, where the freetimes are aio, right?  Do you use flips too?  I don't have any of the inserts, but I ended up buying a tonne of flip covers right out if the gate, (thinking just keep it simple and stick with one brand) and now I'm just hoping I like them and I didn't make a huge mistake!  Lol

    @businesswife I love the flip covers! We use them a ton, and you can even get disposable inserts for traveling. I'm sure you'll like them, but if not I think the resale prices are pretty good. (Really like all the bum genus diapers we've used, but yes the freetimes are aio, they just have flaps so they dry faster, which I love.)

    The fitteds we used were the kissaluv newborns, they are amazing! We have a few aio newborn diapers that I'm pretty eh about (a lot of leaks), but those kissaluvs are the best, knock wood, we never had one diaper blowout with two kids and BF poop.

    WAYDTGKU: Waiting for AF to leave

    R/R: I forgot how bad AF is off BC… oh and my FIL decided he wanted to let me know that he can’t wait until he gets to hold my child (while holding my nephew) on the first day of a really bad AF. I smiled but I really just wanted to strangle him.

    CS/Q: I have read differing opinions on HIO ED vs EOD. What is everyone’s opinion on this? Was thinking of going ED this cycle.

    GTKY: What was the last text message you sent? “Now I have to make [DH] stop by Tim Hortons to get donuts” in a group text to my family after my dad sent a picture of donuts to everyone.

    @tigercakes – have a good date day!

    @beachbunnyxo123 – I could spend all day in Babies R Us! I hope you have a good time at your niece’s bday party.

    @cdnrunning – sorry to see you back here CD buddy.

    @BusinessWife – sorry about the possible BFP from your cousin’s wife. FX it is something different.

    @Camomile – I forgot it was Saturday this morning too! I was confused why my husband was still in bed at 7am. It’s so much better to forget it’s the weekend than to wake up on a Tuesday and think it’s a Saturday.

    @georgiagirl3050 – right there with you! I’m making my DH take me to get sushi. I should go grab a bottle of wine too.

    @cricket648 – have fun at the hockey game tonight.

    @purplg8r – sorry about the pain, FX you can figure out what is going on soon. Also super jealous you are going to Disney related things in Shanghai! The Toy Story hotel sounds super fun!

    @Sailing_Mama – Hopefully you can find some down time to enjoy your weekends. I am not a fan of busy weekends either.

    @emcake – FX for a lazy weekend

    @KatieEl – I love when my makeup turns out well, it makes me feel so much more confident. You should find a reason to get out to the mall or something just to show it off! LOL

    @kvacmak – 11 days is a long time but luckily it is almost over. I can barely function when my DH goes out of town for one day. 

    TTC since February 2017

  • @katieEl oh cool!  I have read such good things about the kissas! But apparently you can only find the size 0s preloved now???  I wonder why they stopped making them, bc I have only ever heard good things!

  • @justkeepswimming8 thanks, I guess we'll know soon enough! Lol. As for the ED/EOD, I think EOD is mainly recommended for ppl with MFI or who aren't temping so may be less certain of when they Od.  So ED is worth a shot! Just don't fret if you don't manage to get ED timing.  It's definitely not necessary to get ku ;)

  • @Cricket648 - I only just started temping vaginally this cycle once AF left, but I will keep you guys updated. There was only a 0.02 difference between yesterday and today and I temped at completely different times due to going into my off days.
