  • Good morning ladies!

    @KariAnn323 While I am not a fan of the LLR leggings, I will agree that they do have some great, ultra comfy skirt and dress options. I've got a maxi and a casie skirt that I love. I hope that your new dress has you feeling pretty and comfy today!

    @adirat Yay for CD1 and a new beginning (sort of) for you. I've been following your story and am so happy to see you here and off the bench!  <3

    G'morning ladies!

    @KariAnn323 I wish I could wear dresses to work... stupid labs lol.  BBQ sounds fun!
    @adirat Don't you know you gotta drink ALL the lemon water ;)  Yay, glad you're off the bench!
    @kbamomma33 Happy almost birthday! I'm sorry to hear you've been having a rough time lately.  I hope things start to look up and you have a super productive day!  


    Month/Cycle: 5/5

    CD: 10

    WAYDTGKU: CM/CP, BBT, PNVs, HIO (gonna shoot for EOD although I haven't clued DH in on this info yet lmao)

    R/R: Rant - nah. New week, new outlook, lets hope to keep it that way. Rave - Coffee.  Extra sleep.  Kitty snuggles.  DH cuddles.  Crafting.

    CS/Q: Apparently since having my IUD out a few months back DH says I'm uber hormonal (no duh genius I'm not on BC).  What do you guys do to not drive your SO bonkers.  DH says he's somewhat worried that if we ever get KTFU I'ma be so nuts he's gonna go live at the ILs until a LO gets pooped out.
     
    GTKY: It's Monday. What's something awesome you have planned for this week? (If you want to say "nothing" then you better plan something fun for yourself!)
    I hope to re-plant my herbs (stupid squirrels!), work on the a few crafts, hopefully go fishing at some point, watch terrible movies with DH (Critters is on the list for tonight), and start a new book

    ETA: stuff, bump cut off words

    LO arrived 11/9/2018!  We have a baby!

    WAYDTGKU: BBT, OPK, CM, PNV, charting all the things, and a few other supplements for luck.

    @SkilledSailor, it is truly my happy place. I get grumpy if I don't make it at least 3 times, but I definitely prefer to go more often. 
    adiratdukestar5SkilledSailor
  • @LazyCrane that is dedication!  I hope you can get to all the classes you want.  I wish I had your motivation.

    @Dilynne *creepy internet hugs* if you ever need to chat I'm here, FX this is your cycle.  Your weekend plans sound fun!  I hope it's a blast

    @MrsMiller8588 How was the softball tourny?  I hope your week isn't too stressful and your get everything you have planned accomplished!  Make some time for yourself so you don't get burnt out

    @nitnat007 getting a haircut/new color always helps me feel better!  What color are you thinking?  Or just planning a touch-up?  Have a great short week!

    @becausescience Enjoy your iced coffee & pedi!  Sounds like an excellent way to spend your day :)

  • @adirat YES!!!!!


    @kbamomma33 Lots of creepy internet hugs! I'm here if you ever need to talk. I'm wearing an Amelia today. It's sooo soft! I tried on a Cassie, but it wasn't flattering on me and the fabric is so thin that I don't think spanx would help. Their maxis are cute but way too long on me.

    @lurvleybunchococonuts This is going to sound harsh, but I would tell YH to deal with it. I mean if it's to the point that your snapping at everyone all the time that's one thing. But if it's just normal hormonal stuff that he's not used then it's something he's going to have to get used to. 

    @Dilynne Did they ever determine what was going on? I don't think I saw anything but I could have missed it.

    @MrsMiller8588 Which one are you wearing? I have a teal Amelia on with a gray cardigan, and I definitely feel like I should be wearing some pearls.

    @kbamomma33 I'm a lab tech/QC for a company that manufactures cattle feed

    @KariAnn323 I hear ya.  I've been trying to bite my tongue and don't *think* I've been overly snappy (which probably means I have been, grr at myself).  I definitely have not had as much patience as usual and have been having some extreme mood swings (which neither of us are used to).  We had a really good talk yesterday after I told him that he needs to have a bit more patience with me or we quit TTC/I go back on BC (which he doesn't want, he 100% wants a LO).  And he was joking about go to the ILs (but of course I didn't take as joking at first). I'm just frustrated with myself still getting used to the unregulated hormones. Silly me never thought going off BC would make that much difference.  I think part of it is that I need to be more realistic with the expectations I set for myself. - sorry for the ramble.  If TLDR: thanks!  You're right.  He needs to get used to it, it's new to us both (this is the first time off BC since I was 18) and I need to be more realistic/need a reminder on occasion not to be a B. Harsh is sometimes exactly what I need to hear.

  • @fishsticks-n-custard FX that's the case!  I had my IUD (mirena) for the full 5 years, so it's a big change.  I was so even-keeled for so long I feel a little batty lately.  FX you get EWCM soon!  I usually get a weird creamy/stretchy mix a few days before actual EWCM.  Have a blast with your family!  Glad to hear you have off for the 4th!

    @Pinky917 Yay!  I hope you post before/after pics.  I love seeing how people update/renovate.  Are you guys DIYing or do you have a contractor?

  • @lurvleybunchococonuts just a little touch up on the roots. I made a big change and went darker last year and had big regrets so a little gun shy about veering away from the lighter color now. 

    @Pinky917 definitely need pictures! I did a kitchen reno beginning of this year. Love, love!

    @becausescience if it were me I would keep the 5am time. For me I find my temp is most consistent if I am temping at the same time regardless of how well I sleep up to that point. Actually I almost always get woken up between 5 and 5:30 but temp at 6 and I can still see my shift. 

    @lurvleybunchococonuts It was so fun! Thanks for asking! The weather was chilly for this time of year and DHs team lost their second game so he was disappointed. But it was good to see friends and hang out! 

    @KariAnn323 I am wearing a Carly with leggings! It feels like I'm wearing PJs while also looking presentable.

    @kbamomma33 Thanks girl! I know my week always ends up going better that it looks on Monday. Just one day at a time :)

  • @adirat --I am so sorry for your loss.  I am fairly new to this board, so I thank you for sharing your story with us.  Excited to cheer you on in this TTC journey...glad you are cleared to start again!
    @KariAnn323 --what are your favorite board games?
    @kbamomma33 --I'm sorry for the rough last couple of days.  Yay for your birthday this week!  Do you get to give input for what you will do or do you want your DH to surprise you completely?
    @nitnat007 --what type of gym class do you teach?
    @LazyCrane -- I think I have mentioned mine here (after reading rules carefully), but I understand the perspective @becausescience shared, so I think I will be more cautious.  Also, that is awesome you attend yoga classes!  Do you have a great yoga studio near by or do you go to a gym?  I am more of a runner/swimmer, but I like to try to fit in yoga at least 1x a month...I would love to do it more often.
    @becausescience --pedicures are the best! 
    @Dilynne --I am so sorry about your kidney infection...that sounds miserable.
    @hollieileen --your NC lake vacation sounds nice...will it be with your side of the family or with your DH/SO's family?

    dukestar5
  • @JennyColada Sorry to hear about the job.  Are you also looking outside your current company?  And do something nice for yourself on your mental health day.

    @nitnat007 I loved BodyPump when I had a Y membership.  And it helped me get "in shape" for my wedding.  (In quotes bc I've never really been in shape - but it was good for me.)  Do you have any thoughts about the Les Mills On Demand subscription?  I'd love to start BodyPump again, but the gyms that offer it in my area are not close by.

    @Dilynne I had a terrible kidney infection a few years ago.  I was in so much pain and super feverish.  The Urgent Care Clinic still said I had to have a fever for 3 days and did nothing for me.  I went back the next day and a different doctor was able to diagnose me.  Hope you are feeling better!

    @hollieileen Boo for CD1  :( I find temping really helpful to figure out O.  It is annoying at first, but once you get into the habit isn't too bad.

  • @becausescience I think it would be helpful for me bc my cycles are always a little inconsistent. But I'm really afraid of obsessing over charting. i obsess enough as it is haha! I just can't decide... 

    @JennyColada sorry about the rough week! Hope the coming days are better!! 
    JennyColada
  • @nitnat007, I do body pump once or twice a week when I'm really on my game--which I haven't been lately. I actually got called out by a yoga friend this morning because I haven't been to body pump in so long...whoops. I told her I'd try to make it tomorrow. It's right after the yoga class, so in theory it should be easy to do. It's just so hard to get up and moving like that after shavasana. 

    @dukestar5, yes, the rules I read and the things I was noticing in posts didn't match to me, so that's why I asked the question. I was on this board for about a year TTC my first and it was something we went back and forth on then too, so I'm not surprised. It's easy enough to do, just not something I'm in the habit of. It's a habit I can form. Just like a daily yoga practice. Which I do at my gym. I occasionally like to mix things up, so I enjoy having the options, but my gym has several great yoga instructors so I'm lucky in that regard. 
    dukestar5
  • @JennyColada Sorry to hear about your job. It's a horrible feeling when you are not happy at work. Hope that something changes soon!

    @becausescience I haven't tried the on demand stuff personally. But from what I understand it's basically the same versions of we get as instructors to learn from. Which is awesome. If you have the weights or stuff to modify, totally go for it!

    @LazyCrane Maybe we should motivate each other. You can inspire me to go and do some yoga and I'll inspire you to get to pump?!
