Typical LP Length:
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say?
Timing: -2, O
Typical LP Length: last month was 12.
Testing: I pee on all the things.
R/R: I have had some of those most delish peaches from a local farm this week! Only rant is I should have packed 2 in my lunch today and only brought one.
GTKY: No, not necessarily. I am particularly out many things such as the cleanliness of the house, loose hair in the sink, correct silverware placement (yup). MH is more high maintenance than me. I often leave with little to no make up, toss my hair in a bun or braid, and call it a day in athletic wear that isn't lululemon or fabletics.
ETA: And by not those brands, I mean, I'm content in wearing whatevertheheck I pull out of the laundry, regardless of matching brands on top/bottom, and ),don't have nice vs actual athletic clothes.
Timing: -4 -2 O
Typical LP Length: 13
Testing: 8/04 for drinking purposes (10 dpo)
R/R: My cat is afraid of MH and when MH is in the basement gaming, my cat is too afraid to go down there to use the litter box, so instead he will pee on the bed if I don't shut the bedroom door when I get up to get ready for work in the evenings. I forgot to shut the door last night, but remembered by the time I got to work. It was already too late. DH put locked him in his carrier overnight and I came home to a pee- and vomit-covered cat.
CS/Q: prettiest chart I've had since that one time I charted while I was on vacation and was sleeping like a relatively normal person.
GTKY: I am so NOT high maintenance and MH agrees (based on his ex). I probably only wear make-up 2-3 days a month and I can't remember the last time I wore heels.
Typical LP Length: not sure. I looked up old pre BCP charts and according to those 10 - 12
Testing: I am holding strong today its still too early and I have no tests in the house. Tomorrow will be a different story - my amazon cheapies should arrive today. I feel like 7 DPO is still too early so I am going to try to make it to 10 DPO.
R/R: I am so thankful I am in the TWW. DH has done something to his back so there would have been no HIO. Also, I am already starting to annoy myself with the symptom spotting. It is only 6 DPO - get it together woman!!
I don't think I am super high maintenance but I guess I am a little bit. I get my hair cut/colored regularly, nails done, like to be well dressed when I go out and pretty much never leave the house without makeup.
Me: 35 * DH: 35Married: July 2005DS1: Aug. 2006 * DS2: Dec. 2011 * DS3: Jan: 2014
Ticker in the spoiler
CD/DPO: 26/ we're going to say 7
Timing: -3, 0
Testing: When AF is late. Or a week late. I don't know I'm not worried about it this cycle.
R/R: So, I'm going with O being CD19 so that I don't test early. It's frustrating how one missed temperature can make all the difference!
CS/Q: None today, unless you want to guess O. https://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/60e8fc
GTKY: Hm. I would say no. I do require some attention but I pretty much handle myself. My husband would probably say no, too.
Typical LP Length: 14
Testing: starting Monday, 10DPO
R/R: I don't go into work until later today and I am really enjoying this lazy morning. Rant: DH will be gone most of the next 3 weeks for work. I'm worried about timing if we don't get KU this cycle
CS/Q: nothing currently
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say?
I won't even lie to myself, I think I am. I love makeup, I get my hair and nails done. I go most days wearing dresses and heels. I'm a girly girl through and through! On weekends though, it all goes out the window. I normally wear leggings, a messy bun or pony, and tinted moisturizer. DH would definitely agree!
Timing: O, iui
Testing: supposed to be 8/15..... so probably 8/11
R/R: I didnt realize how uncomfortable it was to have an IUI, and afterwards, even today. But my SS, who highly dislikes his toddler half-brother (from his dad), is actually really excited about this, which is a huge relief!
I have Aspergers, so I am very particular about some things, but overall very easygoing. DF agrees that we both are relatively low maintenance, thankfully
TTC since May 2017, first cycle (medicated) with IUI August 2017 using SD
Timing: -1, 0, +1
Typical LP Length: No idea.
Testing: Monday unless AF shows up first.
R/R: I've been cramping for the last three days, but so far no bleeding. It's getting a little annoying TBH, but at least my luteal phase is looking longer than I initially expected it to be?
CS/Q: None atm.
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? Yes and no. I don't do my nails, I only go to the hairdressers' like three times a year and usually wear minimal makeup, but I do love pretty clothes and such... DH would probably say yes.
CD/DPO: 27/6 or 8
Timing: -4, -3, -2, -1 (if 6dpo)
Typical LP Length: ~14
Testing: An ice cream sandwich tasted weird last night so probably going to give in and pee on something today. It's way too soon.
R/R: I feel like I've been bloated for a month, between provera, letrozole, and all the hormones in LP. None of my summer clothes fit, I'm hot allofthetime, and
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? Eh, about some things.. I'm quite introverted, and get high maintenance leading into situations in which I anticipate being crazy uncomfortable. He'd probably say no on most days, but between my SS like a boss and hormones, today he might say differently.
Timing: -1, 0
Typical LP Length: I have no idea, this is my first time properly charting
Testing: Probably 8/11?
R/R: Rave: I'm two days away from leaving for a horse competition in Sonoma and I am turbo excited for a short break from work. Rant: I miss my mom. She and I are really close and my parents spend half the year here and half in France (that's where we are from). I just miss being silly with her.
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? I am so super lazy when it comes to my appearance but I do want to look presentable. So I try to buy clothes that look elegant for work that I can put together really easily the night before without much effort and then makeup wise, I would guess most people at work say I wear no makeup. But I mean, I do use concealer guys! I work with all guys, so they are all clueless. My husband would probably say I'm low maintenance but only bc I make him watch Real Housewives sometimes for reference on what high maintenance is all about.
Month/cycle: 12/8 (6/3 AL)
Timing: O, +1
Typical LP Length: 9-11
Testing: Saturday (dpo 8) due to drinking
R/R: I ended up having my headache all day yesterday. It finally is gone this morning. I haven't had a headache for that long in a loooong time.
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? Yeah. I'm not high maintenance with getting my hair cut or getting nails done but I have ugly wavy hair so I always straighten it. And I have really red skin on my face so I don't go out without makeup. And I hate dirt. But then there's nothing I love more than watching sports and eating wings and drinking beer so...
@jrm_14 I love fresh peaches!
@pebbledam Awwww that sucks! Cleaning up pee and vomit is never fun. Especially becasue cats don't generally like to be cleaned...
@glitzandglitter I hope YH's back feels better soon!
@stemgirl11 Sorry about the cramping. Hopefully it means something good!
@stalkinghorse GL at your competition!
@ChloandCoco What were your dreams about? I love hearing about people's dreams!
@purplg8r Sorry about your headache, but I'm glad you're feeling better!
Timing: -4, -2, -1, 0
Typical LP Length: 12?
Testing: Not sure
R/R: I've never made it into the TWW before, so that feels like a win. Other than that, I'm just glad I have no plans today.
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? I don't think I'm high maintenance, and my H would agree.
Typical LP Length: 9-10 days
Testing: Not yet. It's a miracle. I have lots of internet cheapies, so not sure how long I can hold out.
R/R: Oh, work is stupid. And I have a headache. That's about it really.
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? Ehh... I like to think I'm particular, but not high maintenance (is that what all high maintenance people say)? I'm highly prone to migraines, so I get funny about lights being on, and being too hot. Also, I don't wear much makeup, but I ALWAYS wear mascara when I leave the house. I need it. So, I guess I'll just change my answer to yes.
Typical LP Length: 11-15
Testing: I will not!
R/R: ahhhhhh I'm good no rants today.
CS/Q: does everyone get an implantation dip? Or some peeps temps just stay up!?
GTKY: Would you consider yourself high maintenance? What would your SO say? While my daily routine is approx 20 min.... The amount of jewelry, clothes and make up I own keeps me in the high maintenance category.... I'll take it!
@ChloandCoco same here with the crazy dreams!
@purplg8r yay that your headache is gone!!!
@cricket648 welcome to the tww!
@mamaofboys17 your timing is awesome! Makes me tired thinking about it! Lol
Edit cause my R/R didn't make sense lol
CD/DPO: 25/maybe 6??
Timing: 0 and +1
Typical LP Length: I have no idea what this means
Testing: There is no need until late next week
R/R: I woke up with inner ear pain and it sucks. I don't know where it came from.
CS/Q: No clue what this means either.
I don't think I'm high maintenance, but I am very particular about the way I want things done. I don't think my husband would say I'm high maintenance either.
Question: do you have sex during the tww? I read conflicting evidence.
Fav Quote: The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return
CD/DPO: 23/ Either 3 or 7 (opks never +, ewcm lasted 1 1/2 weeks, 2 instances of O pain)
Timing: 13 of the last 15 days (some days twice a day), caught both potential O days
Typical LP Length: 14-16 days
Testing: waiting until CD 29
R/R: DH is home from deployment, yay! (hence all the BDing). This sadly means I have to spend 2 weeks with my in-laws...
CS/Q: I think this has to do with temping, which I'm not doing this time around due to pure laziness.
100% I don't try to be, but I like things in a particular way, and when they don't go my way I struggle. It's something I'm working on and DH loves me anyways.
pebbledam said***snip***@MrsBunz - I really hope you did O, but I'm going to tell the tale of my 73-day cycle just in case: My body geared up 3 times before it O'd I had EWCM, O pains, and nearly positive OPKs, but didn't O until that 3rd attempt on CD60. I charted during that cycle of hell, see below. Have you been able to turn OPKs in the past? Some people can't. FX you don't have to suffer through that. Also, LP stands for "luteal phase" and is the part of the cycle that goes from O to next AF. Most people have a LP in the 10-14 day range, but depends on the person (but isn't the length of the full cycle). "CS/Q" stands for Chart Stalk/Questions - feel free to use this section to ask questions about your cycle or fertility or pnvs or anything TTC related (doesn't have to be about your chart specifically).
