  • @jsnakehole I have a love/hate relationship with field trips. They are fun, but stressful. I always try to plan ones in outdoor spaces so I don’t have to worry about them being loud.

    WAYDTGKU:  Clomid, OPKs, BBT in a few days, HIO, Coq10 for us both

    R/R: Rant: It's Monday. Rave: Just one more week until we're at the "week o' fun"! We've filled next week with lots of great things to do. 

    CS/Q: Nope

    GTKY: I'm so bad at these. Um....Would you rather go caroling every night of December or have a neighbor who is a horrible singer loudly practice their caroling all hours of the night? 

    @jsnakehole Is this the cool tech one?! Hope everyone behaves for you! 

    @dukestar5 My H has trouble if he knows it's "game time" for O. How was your trip?

    @matryoshkadoll Honestly, I don't get too bummed about not O'ing at a certain time. But I have fairly regular cycles. It's just another day to HIO really.

  • @jsnakehole I hope your field trip goes smoothly! And after your GTKY I'm seriously craving latkes.
    @dukestar5 Yay for the positive opk, and hopefully you get some good timing in tonight!
    @matryoshkadoll Sorry you're feeling down about your temps. Is this your first cycle temping? For me, if I have a low temp still my reaction tends to be more positive, along the lines of "yay, we still have time to get good timing in!"
    ---------------------------

    Month/Cycle: 10/10

    CD: 6

    WAYDTGKU: letrozole + ovidrel trigger + IUI

    R/R: Had a nice, lazy birthday with MH and hung out with a friend for most of yesterday. Now I should probably catch up on work! I still have to plan my classes for today, I have an article review due tomorrow, and I have a pile of grading to work on. But taking the weekend off was still worth it. :)

    CS/Q: My temps look similar to last month on letrozole, but rockier than they normally are. Still nothing exciting to see yet, and no real questions.

    GTKY:   Create your own holiday-inspired "Would you rather?" question.
    Would you rather have your ears turn into elf ears or have a Santa beard forever? (I can't take credit, but I found this one funny. :))

  • @emmasemm Hi. I joined the board a week or two ago but haven’t posted much (still getting used to this talking to strangers thing lol).  I thought I had a pretty good understanding of the signs my body was giving me but every month I get less sure.  So I decided to add the OPKs.  Now I’m wishing I would have started tracking BBT this month as well… Oh well, next month.  A couple of you ladies suggested testing multiple times a day, which I did over the weekend.  But how do you do it at work!?  The tests I bought say no FMU which is why I’ve been testing in the afternoon when I get home. I’m just hoping I’ll turn one soon and I don’t have to worry about it (I did detect an increase in CM this morning).  I downloaded FF when I joined the group but never officially set it up till today.  Made me kinda realize how little of information I’ve been keeping track of… BTW I love math. That’s why I picked that question lol.  Huge STEM nerd.

    @SkilledSailor When I have been testing it has been in the afternoon.  I did test multiple times yesterday but I’m not sure how to test during work days?

    @melbel0824 I had an appointment with my gyn a couple months ago and all she said was to keep BDing… She wants me to come in this month is not KU yet for a pap but other than that she doesn’t sound too concerned about anything.

  • @ljmoon6 don’t worry - I still discover new things about my body and my cycle every month! I set up the spreadsheet as after my number of cycles I can do some pretty good regression analysis by now ;-)
    Someone recently posted that if you can change a pad or a tampon at work, then you can use OPKs and do IVF injections... other people tend to realize less than we think! 
    I do OPKs without peeing in a cup by using the wrapper it comes in (I use internet cheapies) to pee in and then dipping in that. I rip open the top and half way down one side which seems to give me a big enough space to aim in!

  • @skilledsailor first of all thanks a lot for asking :-) Actually right now we feel good, as at least we don’t know that we don’t have a chance - therefore we are assuming we have a chance to try on our own this month! 
    But ask me again on Friday after our WTF appointment... I might need a lot of ice cream...
    And Fx it’s on your good side - or that at least your good side catches the egg!

    @LJMoon6 I do the same. just slip it in my pocket and use the wrapper as a "cup." It's the waiting 5 minutes part that gives me anxiety. Lol. I also found that testing around 10/10:30 works best for me. Everyone is a little different and it may take a bit of time to figure out when you get your surge. I know that for me I will usually turn a positive mid-morning and then again that evening, if I've had a 4 hour hold. So it may just take some trial and error. I'm with you on the wishing I had data. I didn't start temping until cycle 5...

  • @emmasemm and @Avrilmai I never even thought to use the wrapper like a cup. Like @LJMoon6 this is also my first month using OPKs, so that was a super helpful hint.

  • @emmasemm Glad you're both feeling good so far! I like your line of thought! And thank you! I actually contacted the RE office about my symptoms and they told me not to take the last pill. I go in for a work up on Thursday to see what's up. Basically, if I'm hyper-responding we might be out this cycle. Whomp whomp. 

    @blackhottamales Sorry you're feeling down. Maybe take a cycle or two to NTNP? Also, hands down pumpkin.

  • @emmasemm and @Avrilmai Fucking genius! You guys are awesome.  Thanks for the tip, I will have to try that tomorrow.

    @blackhottamales I’m at that point in my cycle that I start to doubt everything I thought I knew about my body… I’m really just hoping that I’ve been misinterpreting the signs.  I’m hoping the OPKs will give me better insight of when I actually O. Next month I’ll be adding BBT.

  • @offtoneverland I think I just stepped the wrong way on it when I was working out last week. It feels better after not being on it this past weekend.

    @LJMoon6 Count me in for another person who pees in the wrapper. It may take some practice!  I have no craps left to give- so, if I’m not done in the restroom before the 3 minute or whatever  time to read OPKs, I wrap it in a tissue & take it with me. :D

    p.s.  I agree with @offtoneverland about waiting out testing bc of a short LP, especially if you’re still learning about using OPKs & charting. After several months of charting BBT, OPKs, & CM, I learned about how long after the first +OPK and how long after the OPK turns negative again before I O. So, once you get a +opk, it’s not necessarily a bad thing to keep testing until you get negatives again, for more data. (Never too much data, right @emmasemm?  ;) )

  • @dukestar5 and @matryoshkadoll you guys give me too much credit. ;) I just did the handful I had to send out this week that are less personal and without photos. And they are sitting in my bag without stamps currently. As for our actual photo cards, we only just had our photos done last week so they are not even ordered.
