    CS/Q:


    GTKY: What's the best kind of cookie (and don't tell me you don't like cookies - pick one)?


    All of them :# If I had to pick a favorite it would be chocolate chip straight out of the oven. I love ginger snaps and sugar cookies too.

    @pebbledam morning DPO buddy! Is it a little weird that we have the same timing too

Guess that's just more cookies for you @glitzandglitter and @pebbledam haha. DH loves red velvet cookies with white chocolate chips.

    @cm716 - You are wise not to keep them in the house. My internet cheapies arrive tomorrow. It is going to be a daily struggle not to use them. Amazon is such an enabler.

    @pebbledam Can things like Advil mess with implantation? Didn't know this...
    @thatcrazyauntie I know how you feel! SS is annoying! I'm there too. :(

  • @pebbledam I'm about to join you with the Advil. I get frequent headaches that turn bad if I don't take medicine.  Tylenol used to do nothing for me (only Advil did) so at the beginning of TTC, I slowly switched myself over. But I've had a headache since last night, taken extra strength Tylenol twice and it hasn't worked. 

    @glitzandglitter have fun with your friends at lunch!!

    @thatcrazyauntie it's so hard not to SS!

    @margorita30 I'm more about salty stuff too but I still loooove cookies!!

    @cm716 nice work on the losing pounds!!

    @charlestonchew so sorry about AF!

    @_darth hello dpo buddy!!

    @flashley-2 yay for excellent timing!!

    @buttercup0525 SS is annoying. But so hard not to do!!

    @ChloandCoco ewwww nuts ruin cookies!  Lol

    Month/cycle: 12/8 (6/3 AL)

    CD/DPO: 36/4

    Timing: O, +1

    Typical LP Length: 9-11

    Testing: Saturday for drinking reasons 

    R/R: I've had a headache since last night (not uncommon for me to have headaches but they normally go away)  I've taken extra strength Tylenol twice but it hasn't worked.  Debating Advil  (I also have prescription 800mg ibuprofen for my bad headaches but I haven't taken it since we started TTC and I'm paranoid taking it during TWW)  I can't decide what to do

    CS/Q:

    GTKY: What's the best kind of cookie (and don't tell me you don't like cookies - pick one p )? I have to pick one?????  How about --fresh baked cookies that are crispy just along the outside but gory in the center (chocolate chip, peanut butter cup, etc)

  • Month/cycle: 14/5

    CD/DPO: 26/5 or 7? Progesterone came back yesterday at 18.5 (CD 25), which RE thinks is high for 4dpo, so maybe a day or two earlier. 

    Timing: -4, -3, -2, -1 (I think.. or maybe -2,-1,0,+1 - ). 

    Typical LP Length: 14 days on BC, all over the place without. 

    Testing: Trying to hold off for another week... Just ordered more on prime, so that'll force me to hold off at least 2 more days.

    R/R: @pebbledam @purplg8r I had no idea advil could impact implantation.. I get pretty bad headaches alongside hormone changes, and now am worried I've messed with previous cycles.. Will look into ibuprofen alternatives.

    CS/Q: Have any of you used the Ava bracelet? Not crazy about the pricetag, but kind of turned on by the thought of additional data points. 

    GTKY: What's the best kind of cookie (and don't tell me you don't like cookies - pick one p )? Depends on the day and what's in front of me.. Shortbread, peanut butter, chewy oatmeal raisin, or gooey chocolate chip.

    Month/cycle: 20/15

    CD/DPO: 25/?

    Timing: ?

    Testing: ?

    R/R: I have not been temping faithfully. Missed a few. And my temperature is going up and down weirdly. But I took letrozole, and I am pretty sure I ovulated I just don't know exactly when. I left it up to my husband when we BD (I'm trying to RELAX as the people always say, constantly, always.) and he seems to have hit both the candidates for when I might have o'ed. WEIRD.

    CS/Q: https://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/60e8fc Which day do you think? Based on my other ovulatory cycles, I'd say cd16. But it might also be cd19.

    GTKY: Fresh m&m cookies or white chocolate macadamia nut cookies... can't decide. Or if I'm getting a package then fudge stripes. :)

    @buttercup0525 I would cry!!

     I well AF just showed so off to WTO I go. Waaah! Possible *TW

    On the bright side my preschooler does a cooking class every Tuesday and today they made Bobby Flay's Mac & cheese. If you need me I'll be over here eating my feelings lol.

    If we aren't allowed to mention kids in here please let me know. I'm a newb and didn't see anything about that in the rules.  *TW end

    @purplg8r  I'm so sorry about the headache.  That sounds miserable!  But your cookie description is exactly how I love mine.  Yummo!

    @buttercup0525  No way!  That's terrible.  What kind of food did you order?   Did you end up re-ordering or just making something at home?

    @lizeybee  I know that @fishsticks-n-custard has the Ava bracelet.  Perhaps she can share some thoughts on it.

    @margorita30  So sorry about AF.  That looks delicious!
  • @buttercup0525, @thatcrazyauntie, @lizeybee - I wanted to give you guys some links, since science is what we do here. This is one for the research done in rats that has a link to the full text: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16493584 This link is is from WebMD that talks about a study done with a small group of women: http://www.webmd.com/women/news/20150617/nsaids-women-fertility#1

    @ChloandCoco - I, too, like nutty cookies!
    @purplg8r - Tylenol doesn't do anything for my headaches ever. I was tired when I got home from work and still had some errands to run and just popped those advils in my mouth and didn't realize the mistake until I woke up later that day. If I had been thinking, I would have tried some other remedies first (cold compress, water, sleep), but alas my sleepy self didn't think it through.
    @Mythril - Gah, that missing temp on CD16 makes it tough, but I'm with you that it could be either.... but I lean toward CD19 because you seem to usually have a higher temp jump. (I know that was super helpful.)

    @dukestar5 I ordered a gourmet grilled cheese sandwich. This one was brisket and grilled cheese on cheddar jalapeno bread. Yum. I ended up leaving work early (that just added to my bad day and I was already in pain from the dentist appt. I had the previous day) and going to the restaurant and getting it to go. 

    @pebbledam Yay for science. I will definitely look into those articles! Thank you!

    Hello Ladies! This is my first time on this board- or getting this far! I filled out as much as I can. Still trying to figure out what these abbreviations mean. :)

    Month/cycle:

    CD/DPO: 1dpo

    Timing: -1, O, +1

    Typical LP Length: Not sure.

    Testing: Still too early.

    R/R: Had a headache yesterday and took some Excedrin without thinking. I hope this is ok. Now I’m having bad cramps on my lower abdomen. This is the first time for me so I’m not sure what is normal.

    CS/Q: Not temping.  

    GTKY: What's the best kind of cookie (and don't tell me you don't like cookies - pick one p)? All of them! But I really like homemade chocolate chip!

  • Hi @AC93639, were you confused about the meaning of timing? (Just guessing based on the question mark). It means timing of sex relative to O. So for instance if you ovulated today, and you had sex today and two days ago your timing would be "-2, O" Does that make sense?

    If you ovulated yesterday, had sex yesterday and today, your timing would be "O, +1"

  • Month/cycle: 1/1 (not really sure what this is?) I assume what month in TTC and what cycle? I recently had a hysteroscopy with polypectomy (removal of polyp from inside uterus). Wasn't really expecting TTC this month but Dr said its possible and DH and I DTD 2 days before O. I wasn't going to track but dang its hard and I cant think of anything else.

     CD/DPO: 24/9

     Timing: ??? I tried looking around for an explanation for these but maybe I'm not looking hard enough. 

     Typical LP Length: 13-14

     Testing: AF should arrive Monday, Aug. 7.  Trying to hold out til then and test only if nothing happens that day. 

     R/R:  Very bubbly when talking to people but dang I am super irritable with some, including my boss (oops). 

     CS/Q: Started temping a few dpo.  It was a steady 98.2.  Then yesterday, 8dpo, it was 97.6.  Worst fear waking up this am and temping was that it was still low.  It was right back up to 98.2.  Possible temp dip?? Fingers crossed. Sleep and food have been weird.  I don't feel much need for either but when I eat, its nonstop and still dont feel full even though I dont feel hungry.  I slept so much yesterday.  Fell asleep during lunch break listening to book.  Went home and fell right to sleep watching tv and slept for 3 hours.  Felt bad I was being nonsocial with DH but he told me to go to bed.  Fell right back asleep for another 7 hours. 

    GTKY: ??? Again, dont know what this means lol, such a newbie. Don't know if this is the place for symptom spotting, so starting new thread. Longest 2 weeks EVER!
  • @scuba_chic As a fellow newbie who has just recently been confused about all the same acronyms and shorthands, let me give this a shot:

    Month/cycle: how many months have you been TTC/how many cycles have you been TTC

    Timing: in relation to ovulation, when did you TRY ;) ;)

    GTKY: getting to know you

    @scuba_chic - I am not sure you understand R/R... It stands for rants/raves. (Maybe you know this already but your answer in your post was confusing to me) also starting one off posts to symptom spot is frowned upon here. I would suggest lurking a bit and checking out the newbie post (there are a few things that are a little out dated but for the most part it is a great place to start.) Welcome :)

    ETA: Just wanted to add that it sounds like you are charting? Typically on the CS/Q: is where we would post a picture of our chart or ask a question. You are of course welcome to chart however you want but most of us here use fertility friend.
