WAYDTGKU: charting, pom juice, OPKs
R/R: DH is on a business trip and won’t get home
until Thursday. This is the first time we’ve been apart in 7
years! I feel like my dogs know I’m lonely because they both slept on either
side of me last night.
CS/Q: I only used an OPK one day last month. I bought a pack of 30 on Amazon to
use for this cycle. What day in the cycle do you start using them? I read that you should start day 11? And do you use them at night or in the morning? Or does it not
GTKY: Would you rather trade some intelligence for looks or
looks for intelligence? I would trade some looks for intelligence.
Only a little though haha.
@offtoneverland SO awesome you worked out this
morning! I need some of your will power. What kind of work out did you do?@skilledsailor Ooooh what are you doing to your
hair? Do you take in a pic of what you want done or do you do the same thing
every time? I’m sorry you aren’t feeling great. Hopefully they get things
figured out for you.@emmasemm Of course all the systems decide to
not work on the same day. Hopefully you get things figured out! How often do
you acupuncture? I was thinking about giving it a try.@kristah2 I am freeeezing as well. I’m sitting
in my cubicle wrapped in a blanket. And I agree with you, yes to Christmas and a
hell no to winter. I kind of okay with the snow up until Christmas and then I just
want Spring to start.@kimberbeep LOL about getting to choose how
many IQ points you lose. I’m sorry everyone is giving you all the stuff they
don’t want to do! Not cool!@darkstar42 I hate driving in the snow. So
scary when the roads are super icy. Be safe out there!
on the workout! I’m jealous of your temporary position. I’m the only editor for
my organization so there’s no chance of leaving this position without leaving
you could stop the Clomid and hopefully you start to feel better soon.
@emmasemm How frustrating
about your systems. IT pushed an update last night that prevented half of us
from logging in this morning. Super helpful.
@kristah2 I’m with
you on the winter thing. I’m super excited for Christmas and then I’ll be sad
because it will just be cold and miserable for months.
@kimberpeep Have fun
with getting busy!
WAYDTGKU: Lots of HIO,
PNVs, CM, OPKs
R/R: I successfully peed in
the OPK wrapper at work today! Rant: It was negative lol.
GTKY: Would you rather trade some intelligence for looks or looks for
intelligence? I’m pretty content
overall, but I think I would trade some looks for intelligence.
Month/Cycle: 7/7 (3ntnp)
WAYDTGKU: PNV, charting cm, OPKs, and BBT (I went out and
bought a basal body thermometer last night! I know it’s too late in this cycle
to get anything useful out of it but at least I can get use to using it)
R/R: Rant. I did a big no no… I notice EWCM yesterday and
really wanted to BD. Of course I put way too much pressure on DH and he couldn’t
finish. We’ve struggled in the past with the same issues, the pressure is too
much for DH. But I thought we found a perfect solution and all was taken care
of. But last night my BIL was over so I
couldn’t use my sexy charm lol to get DH in bed so I had to be blunt and kick
BIL out of the house. Ugh, I’m an idiot!
CS/Q: If I can’t confirm O this cycle when should I jump over to
the TWW dailies?
GTKY: Would you rather trade some intelligence for looks or
looks for intelligence? I am happy with the way I am. I too count myself lucky.
@offtoneverland I will
never understand politics either. Screw it.
@emmasemm I’m super
excited to try peeing in my OKP wrapper today lol. Should be interesting.
@kristah2 I hate winter
too!!! In fact today throughout my whole
2.5 hour commute (that usually only takes 1hour) I kept repeating to myself “I
hate winter… I hate winter… I hate winter!”
@kimberbeep I’ve been
charting my CM and mood (usually really frisky for 2 days around O). But I really want to be able to verify that I
am O-ing and understanding the signs correctly.
I just bought a BBT last night but I go to the bathroom throughout the
night too, every night. Does that mean I’m screwed?
@darkstar42 The roads are
terrible! Take the bus if you can. Hopefully you don’t get a bus driver like I
got this morning who didn’t know how to use the shoulder.
@eleven_ I’m new to the OPKs this month. I still haven’t turned one positive but I’ve
only been testing once a day. So I might
have missed it. I’m going to try testing
twice a day from now on, around noon and then again when I get home.
@melbel0824 I am a little worried I won’t be able to aim
into the wrapper lol. Congrats on honing
in the skill! I’ll be trying today in a few hours. Wish me luck!
@darkstar42 I love snow! But only when it means I can sit at
home in front of the fire.
@eleven_ DH and I have only been apart a few times since we
met. It’s always weird when he’s gone and I love when the dogs decide to be
@LJMoon6 I use Ovia too and I really like it. And I’m glad
you asked the question about when to move to TWW. I’m hoping I can pinpoint it
using OPKs, but if I can’t then I’m going to add in BBT next cycle.
@kobrien827 FX you start to feel better soon! Did you get a
fancy dress for your work party?
@jsnakehole I’m also hoping your queasiness doesn’t turn
into something worse.
@CraftyG One of my coworkers has a service dog and I swear
just seeing Colonel around the office makes me happy.
Update: Positive OPK!
And yes I peed all over my hand but totally worth it! It’s the little
@offtoneverland @SkilledSailor It is definitely performance
anxiety. It only started a couple months ago so I’m still trying to get use to
this subtlety thing. The problem is we BDed only a couple times a month before
we started TTC. So now that I’ve been trying more I don’t even need to say anything
and he knows.
@skilledsailor Thanks for all the info about OPKs.
@kobrien827 That dress is really cute!
@kimberbeep Temping might still be worth it for you. Even
with getting up to pee at night, a lot of women still see a temp shift with O.
@kristah2 Ok, it’s probably colder where you are! I’m in
Minnesota, and I totally opted for the bus today. Too much ice out there for
@eleven_ For opks, I usually test twice a day – late morning
and sometime in the afternoon - starting at cd 10, but it really depends when
you usually O (I O around cd 13, usually). Driving in the snow is scary! I took
the bus today. I’ve seen two accidents and a bunch of people skidding, so I’m
glad I did!
@offtoneverland I do need to deal with the tires soon! Now I’m
scared to drive to the tire place. Hopefully the roads will be clear enough in
a few days, but I may see if a co-worker can pick me up for work tomorrow or go
in super early with MH. I do not like ice!
@LJMoon6 Performance pressure is something a lot of ladies
have dealt with with their husbands. Maybe they’ll have some tips for you! It’s
totally up to you when/if you want to switch to the TWW dailies. If you’re
seeing EWCM, you are probably going to O soon, so maybe once that cm dries up?
I did take the bus today! So glad I’m not driving.
@kobrien827 Yeah, I didn’t trust myself driving, so the bus
it is! Fx you feel better soon!
@jsnakehole I hate hot weather, and I’m just so glad to not
live in AZ anymore! If I could stay home and be snuggly there all day I’d love
the snow even more. Fx you O’d this cycle!
@melbel0824 Fireplaces with snowy weather are the best!
Sadly we don’t have one. The heater just isn’t as exciting. I do have warm
@catlady2015 Yep, I’m hoping to get new tires later this
week! Good for you for getting to the gym! I need to go today, but not sure if
that’s going to happen.
@SkilledSailor It is lovely out today, but such a sharp drop
in temps from yesterday that it’s weird. The high yesterday was 57, and today
it’s in the low 20s.
