Timing: Good (-4, -3, -2, -1, O)
Testing: 10 DPO (my last few luteal phases have been real short, so if I make to 10 days I’ll be thrilled)
R/R: Rave: We had such a nice family morning at home making waffles and hanging out. Rant: Mice. Effing mice. (I want to move DH, get on board.)
GTKY: Midwife or Doula for sure. I basically spend my entire life trying not to geek out to everyone over physiological birth.
@Augusta108 yay for an even longer luteal phase. These little victories count!
@JJMNO1616 and yay for your longer luteal phase too! (Really hoping these longer luteal phases rub off on me this cycle. lol)
@Candyapple2012 a four day field trip sounds intense. Is this like a science camp or something? And I’m definitely not a chart expert, but my only guess would be because you recorded a positive OPK on CD 16 (and usually your O would be within 48 hours of that).
@kaitlink33 sorry about BFN.
@kiwi2628 sorry you O’d so early. Are you temping too? Sometimes I get two patches of CM in a cycle, only reason I’m asking. Travel writer is a great dream job pick! Vacation at fancy resorts, yes please!
@dragonette505 getting so excited for you and hoping everything goes so well!
@TigerCakes great job getting that meal prep done! Woot!
@elisek I love Seattle and Vancouver, how fun!
A longer LP is definitely something to celebrate!
@ CandyApple2012 I agree that it could be when you entered
fertile CM. FF did the exact same thing for me this cycle too… and it was after
I changed CM and added a new temp. Is it smarter than us?
Ugh. Sorry. The renovations sounds exciting! I’ve always wanted to do that.
dragonette505 Thinking positive thoughts for you!
I usually have my temp drop 36 hours before I start light spotting at the start
of AF… so I’ll test that morning low temp, low temp the next morning and that
night AF starts (lightly).
LOL. That does sound entertaining. Hopefully it is harmless drama.
Timing: -5, -3, -2, -1, 0
Testing: Please no.
R/R: Rant: Really in my head
about this cycle and hate it. So much anxiety… and feeling a lot of AF like
symptoms. I know they can mirror pregnancy symptoms, but I’m not in that optimistic
mind space right now; I’m thinking AF is around the corner and short LP. Rave: Tomorrow
is a new day!
GTKY: If money/time/school
were not a factor, what is your dream job? Working at the Farm Sanctuary
(rescues animals from slaughter houses and gives them AMAZING lives) in Watkins

@K&Elizabeth, @Augusta108, @somethingclever, @EmilyLove25 - thanks for the temp drop answers!
@CandyApple2012, @somethingclever - I think in this case google actually made me feel a bit of relief that I’ve just got nabothian cysts and probably get them all the time but never really felt my cervix that often before lol. I am going to wait and see how this cycle goes and then call after that to see if they think I should come in. Thanks!
@Augusta108 - first time to the pacific northwest and we’re stoked! I think we’re going to do a day trip out to Mt. Ranier and do a picnic there. We were originally going to do a much longer Oregon Trail Road Trip, but my husband had to take a bunch of time off for shoulder surgery and doesn’t want to be down to 1 day of PTO until he gets more in October. But we’re sufficiently excited about this as a replacement. Unfortunately I’m going to have to pay for a new passport because I changed my name after marriage
